But can love prevail? That’s the question that begins the story in Delirium, the March Audiobook of the Month. With audiobooks, you do have time to read, to dream, replenish.

Ninety-five days, and then I’ll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It’s hard to be patient. It’s hard not to be afraid while I’m still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn’t touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.

That’s a teaser of Oliver’s dystopian alternative present, a post-war now in which love has been outlawed and 18 year olds living in the civilized cities are expected to undergo a medical procedure, surgery, that removes the ability to love. It’s a good thing, they’re told.

Lauren Oliver’s Delirium ($5.95), the March Audiobook of the Month, is a New York Times best seller and the first book of the latest teen/young adult trilogy (poised) to sweep the culture. What’s new? What’s next? This is the stuff.

If you prefer words laid out on a page, get Delirium ($5.95) in iBooks format.

Or old school? Amazon has Delirium paperback ($7.05, Prime) and, of course, Kindle edition.

As always, there is free. Get the February Audiobook of the Month, Lauren Oliver’s Delirium, or any other single-unit audiobook, like Leander Kahney’s Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple’s Greatest Products, for free? Then check out Audible’s free trial offer

With audiobooks, there is always time to read — dishes, cleaning, gym, commute, gardening, before you go to sleep… The possibilities are almost endless.
