From the author of the blockbuster: Before I Fall, comes a dystopian love story worthy of a Jennifer Lawrence movie. This fast paced, YA thriller is a fast paced page-turner, written by an author who in the words of the Independent "can shock and awe with a well-paced twist".
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.
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.
'In the same mode as Suzanne Collins in her Hunger Games trilogy, Oliver, too, posits a feisty, physically able heroine, giving as good as she gets, in a fast-paced YA thriller: this trend is a welcome one' - Independent on Sunday on PANDEMONIUM
We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM.

Thrilling and thought-provoking... Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive. We almost missed our stop on the bus because we were so engrossed.

Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug. - Heat
