I rate to weak seven stars, only because of the interesting idea for creation of the world.

I rate to weak seven stars, only because of the interesting idea for creation of the world.

And vision of the future in this book is really thrilling. A world where people think that love and feelings are terrible disease, that destroys humans and is the cause of all evil, a world where people voluntarily do procedure 'cure' of feelings and become blunt machines which go through life planned way, with partner chosen by the government and are "happy". All cases of non-compliance with the prevailing rules are eliminated, treat” read more

We meet the main character, Lena, only months before time for her procedure but in the course of 95 days everything she believes will be challenged and she will have to decide between what's expected and what she wants.

It sounds like a great story, and actually it was. the only problem was how slow it was. The characters are believable and the world is both terrifying and comfortable. It just seemed to move so slowly. Overall, if yu like romance I would recommend this more than if you like dystopian novels.” read more
