Delirium (Delirium Trilogy 1)

Overview

The first book in the breathtaking DELIRIUM trilogy. They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I've always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years suffocated by a lie. There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it. Then, at last, they found the cure. The story continues in PANDEMONIUM and REQUIEM. And discover Lauren Oliver's stunning first novel, BEFORE I FALL.

Reviews

'Lauren Oliver is the rising star of young adult fiction... [Delirium] deftly conjures up a recognisably dystopian parallel to our own world, as convincingly terrifying as the North America of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.' -- Sunday Times 'Prepare to pull a sickie and be rooted to your chair with one of the most addictive books we've come across in ages... A recklessly romantic, smart, poignant and tense read from one of the most exciting writers around... Clever, moving and incredibly addictive.' -- Heat 'I didn't leave my bedroom all weekend after I picked up this Margaret Atwood meets Twilight novel. Ah-ma-zing.' -- Grazia 'An original and fast-moving read from a very talented writer.' -- Sun 'The transformation of Lena's character from start to finish is amazing, and Oliver's words really tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended.' -- Press Association 'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight.' -- Stylist 'A beautifully written and wonderfully addictive book that fans of Margaret Atwood will devour.' -- Best 'Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall was one of Bella's favourite books of last year and this follow-up doesn't disappoint.' -- Bella 'Hugely compelling and addictive, this has massive commercial potential.' -- Bookseller's Choice, The Bookseller 'This has to be one of the most original fiction concepts for a long time... Brilliantly constructed... will leave you with your heart in your mouth... It will stir up the emotions that remind you why you bother with love at all.' -- News of the World 'A dystopian Romeo and Juliet ... Lauren Oliver's futuristic vision, set in an alternate but recognisable America, is chillingly realised.' -- Marie Claire 'The setting for this clever, imaginative novel is a society in which love is treated as a disease... With a pacy, absorbing plot and a cast of engaging characters to revel in, Delirium also raises all manner of talking points: relationships, the role of the family, state intervention, friendship, loyalty, individual freedom. The movie must surely be just around the corner.' -- Daily Mail 'Finished reading Lauren Oliver's book Delirium. A beautiful read. Can't stop thinking about it.' -- Fearne Cotton 'For proper, spellbinding immersion pick up a copy of Delirium.' -- Herald Summer Reads

Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy. -- <i>Bella</i> on PANDEMONIUM Amazing, unputdownable! * Grazia * A dystopian Romeo and Juliet story that deserves to be as massive as Twilight. * Stylist * Crackling with tension, Lauren Oliver's follow up to DELIRIUM is as whip smart and addictive as her dystopian debut. * <i>Marie Claire</i> * Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive ... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug. * Heat *
