Before scientists found the cure, people thought
love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.
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.
This book was FANTASTIC, our rating:
This book DEFINITELY deserves 5 stars! The plot was EXTREMELY addicting....I mean who would ever have thought to look at love like a disease? It's brilliant! I love the world Lauren built up around Lena, it's realistic and a little bit scary.....
Here are a few things:
The chemistry of the society was stunningly crafted and the characters chemistry was perfect as well, and I just LOVEDDD IT! Every plot twist was right on the mark and I want to read it again and again and again. A heart breaking cliff hanger.
What didn't work:
Honestly, there wasn't anything I wouldn't have personally changed. I know that I have that problem when I read books sometimes my little writer mind starts correcting things or making little flaws totally obvious, but for this book it didn't turn on that part of my brain at all. I just loved it, living with the character and wearing her emotions like my own. There wasn't a moment where I said "Really? Stop being so dramatic!" no...none of that. It was perfection :D.
What do I think you should do? I think you should DROP EVERYTHING NOW and go pick up/purchase/borrow this book now because its AMAZING.
Just let it be known....I LOVE ALEX SO MUCH! I thought his character development is the BEST of a love interest that I've read. (except maybe Shatter Me..)
