Delirium, by Lauren Oliver

Delirium will have any reader hooked from the first page. Based in a future where love has been classed as a danger to society this novel immediately gets it’s hooks into readers with the prospect of a loveless world.

Lauren Oliver has imagined this world to the tiniest detail, her depictions carrying us forward as we join main character Lena on her journey through the complex web of a government agenda that she has been raised to believe is keeping her safe from the most dangerous threat of all.


From the blurb;

‘They say the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believe them. Until now. ‘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. ‘But now love has been declared a dangerous disease. ‘Everyone who turns eighteen must be immunised with a procedure called the cure. Lena Haloway is looking forward to being able to live the safe, predictable life the government claims the cure will bring. But meeting Alex, an enigmatic boy from the Wilds, might just make her question everything she’s been raised to believe.’


Delirium will leave you wanting more, as its unbeatable love story grows into a crescendo throughout the book. We can’t wait for Delirium to be picked up by Hollywood and turned into the blockbuster hit it is destined to be. Read it before then and get the true story straight from main character Lena herself as her world is flipped upside down by the oh so dangerous disease of love.


We give Delirium Four Stars.
