"Delirium: The Special Edition" features an interview with author Oliver, in which she gives rich insights into the dystopian world she created and what her inspirations were.
Lauren Oliver's powerful New York Times bestselling novel Delirium?the first in a dystopian trilogy?presents a world as terrifying as George Orwell's 1984 and a romance as true as Romeo & Juliet. In an alternate United States, love has been declared a dangerous disease, and the government forces everyone who reaches eighteen to have a procedure called the Cure. Living with her aunt, uncle, and cousins in Portland, Maine, Lena Haloway is very much looking forward to being cured and living a safe, predictable life. She watched love destroy her mother and isn't about to make the same mistakes. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena meets enigmatic Alex, a boy from the Wilds who lives under the government's radar. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love? Delirium received starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal, and was named a Best Book of the Year by USA Today, Kirkus, Amazon.com, YALSA, and the Chicago Public Library and was selected as one of NPR's Top 100 Best Ever Teen Novels.

Vom Verlangen
befreit
Das Hörbuch erzählt vom
Leben in einem totalitären Staat
Liebe als politische Gefahr, als Bedrohung für Ordnung und Sicherheit? Der amerikanische Staat der Zukunft, in dem die 17-jährige Lena lebt, hat sich in einen Hochsicherheitstrakt verwandelt, streng bewacht vom Militär. Offiziell dient alles dem Schutz der Bevölkerung, der Wahlspruch lautet: Sicherheit, Unversehrtheit, Gemeinschaft. Auch die Kommunikation ist eingeschränkt, Intranet-Wachleute programmieren die Zugangsbeschränkungen im Netz.
Dieser Überwachungsstaat fühlt sich nur durch eine moderne Pest bedroht, die Krankheit Deliria, Auslöserin für Gefühle, für Empathie, für Empfindungen. Schon die Kinder in der Schule lernen, dass sie mit dem Tod endet. Lisa weiß, „der Präsident und das Konsortium haben die Liebe als Krankheit identifiziert und die Wissenschaftler entwickelten ein Heilmittel dagegen“, die Operation. Bei jedem Jugendlichen wird zu seinem achtzehnten Geburtstag ein Eingriff im Gehirn vorgenommen, erst dann gilt er als geheilt, als vollwertiges Mitglied der Gemeinschaft, „von Verlangen befreit, in der Erinnerung als auch in der Zukunft“. Lisa kann diesen Tag kaum erwarten, denn die „Heilung“ bedeutet auch, dass über ihre Zukunft entschieden wird und ihr die Gutachter, die sie klassifizieren, einen Ehemann zuteilen.
Bis zu diesem Eingriff werden die Jugendlichen als öffentliche Gefahr angesehen, die man vor sich selbst und ihren Gefühlen schützen muss. Nachts suchen Wachmannschaften nach denen, die sich nicht an die Ausgangssperre halten, oder zu offensichtlich ihre Zuneigung auch ihren Kindern gegenüber zeigen. Die Unterdrückung der menschlichen Gefühle artet in einen religiösen Wahn aus, von dem das ganze Staatswesen erfasst zu sein scheint. Und dem sich die kritische Jugend in Geheimtreffen, wilden Festen und spektakulären oppositionellen Aktionen zu entziehen sucht. Ein Tanz auf dem Vulkan bis zum achtzehnten Geburtstag, bei dem auch Lisa und ihre beste Freundin mitmachen.  
Das Hörbuch verwandelt die literarische Vorlage, die Dystopie der amerikanischen Autorin Lauren Oliver, in ein eindringliches gesellschaftliches Drama. Die Wandlung der Heldin von einer kritiklosen Anhängerin des Staates zu einer Oppositionellen, die für ihr menschliches Recht auf Liebe kämpft, überzeugt durch die Modulation der Stimme von Annina Braunmiller. Auch die leidenschaftliche Beziehung zu einem Außenseiter wird von ihr getragen. Immer schwingt Verzweiflung mit, denn als die beiden entdeckt werden, antwortet der Staat mit brutalen Sanktionen.

"In [Oliver's] dystopian America, love has been outlawed as the life-threatening source of all discord. Lena's gradual awakening is set against a convincing backdrop of totalitarian horror. The abrupt ending leaves enough unanswered questions to set breathless readers up for volume two of this trilogy." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Strong characters, a vivid portrait of the lives of teens in a repressive society, and nagging questions that can be applied to our world today make this book especially compelling and discussable." - School Library Journal (starred review)

"Oliver's follow-up to her smash debut, Before I Fall (2010), is another deft blend of realism and fantasy...the book never loses its A Clockwork Orange-style bite regarding safety versus choice." - Booklist

"In a thick climate of fear, Oliver spins out a suspenseful story of awakening and resistance with true love at its core." - The Horn Book

"Oliver's deeply emotional and incredibly well-honed prose commands the readers' attention and captures their hearts. With a pulse-pounding tempo and unforeseen twists and turns, Lauren Oliver has opened the door on a fantastic new series; the second book can't come soon enough." - New York Journal of Books

Praise for Before I Fall: "Oliver's debut novel is raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful....readers will love Samantha best as she hurtles toward an end as brave as it is heartbreaking." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Before I Fall: "Samantha's attempts to save her life and right the wrongs she has caused are precisely what will draw readers into this complex story and keep them turning pages until Sam succeeds in living her last day the right way." - Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)

Praise for Before I Fall: "Oliver, in a pitch-perfect teen voice, explores the power we have to affect the people around us in this intensely believable first novel...This isa compelling book with a powerful message and should not be missed." - ALA Booklist

Praise for Before I Fall: "This story races forward, twisting in a new direction every few pages, its characters spinning my emotions from affection to frustration, anger to compassion. You'll have no choice but to tear through this book!" - Jay Asher, author of the New York Times bestseller Thirteen Reasons Why

Praise for Before I Fall: "Before I Fall is smart, complex, and heartbreakingly beautiful. Lauren Oliver has written an extraordinary debut novel about what it means to live-and die." - Carolyn Mackler, author of Tangled and The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, a Printz Honor book
