Bought for myself.
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 governments 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.
This book was absolutely amazing. I was so happy with this book, the characters, every word, every page. I LOVED IT! I cannot wait until book 2. And I am serious. I am wanting it now! There was such a cliff hanger.. I mean u assume Alex died... BUT, it didn't actually say that so I AM LIKE OMG, there is still hope!!
So you have Lena a 17 year old girl who lives in this world. A world where LOVE is the biggest problem. A disease. Not allowed. BANNED. They have a "cure" for this disease. Where they basically cut out 1/2 your brain. So that you basically wont feel any emotion at all. Your a robot. Nothing but a person who just lives life everyday basically doing the same ol same ol. You don't feel love, hate, sadness, anything. (that's what I AM getting out of this.. because how can you feel anything, all those feelings go with LOVE). The deliria is like the biggest crime to have. You will have an early procedure if you have it. Which is not recommended, because it can cause allot of problems. But even after the procedure some people just are NEVER the same.
I loved Lena. I loved Alex. I loved Lena & Alex together. I don't want to give away to much information. Because I think that it's important for you to go get this book if you don't already have it. Go to your shelf if you do. And read it, now! Because you will love it. OR at least I hope that you will. This is BY FAR my fave book so far in 2011! & I have the feeling it will stay in my top spot.
Have you read this book yet? What are your feelings on the book? I love how it has the little qoutes, or stories at the start of each chapter. And again.. I loved the BOOK!!
