But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.
My thoughts :
WOW !! I finished this one last night and I am officially a big fan of Lauren Oliver's writing. She has this way to say things, I can't explain, I simply love it. I really like this whole concept that makes love a disease : a book which combines love and dystopia is definitely for me! The characters were very likeable and it was great to see Lena's evolution throughout the novel : she's at first very scared by the government and does as she's told but then she realizes that all she believed was in fact false and that she's been manipulated by the society. Alex, the main character, was also a REALLY nice protagonist : so sweet, swoon-worthy .. (it's all I have to say, I don't want to give any spoiler) !! There were some moments when I wasn't very hooked (when it was going a bit slow) but this is definitely a must read (especially if you like dystopia and romance)!
One of my favorites things about this novel was the ending. I haven't read this kind (I won't tell what kind it is, of course .. so you can keep reading the review) of ending in a long time !! It's PERFECT, what a cliffhanger !! It makes me even more eager to read the next book (released in 2012 : so far away ) !!
All in all, you have to go buy this book immediately and I'm hoping you'll like it as much as I did !!
Super exciting fact : I also wanted to tell you that I'm really happy because Lauren will be in Paris on March 18th and I'll be there !! I'm so excited !! It's going to be the best week end ever .. =). Unfortunately, she'll only do a conference about Young Adult books (I think) during an hour .. they are saying that there won't be a book signing (which seems a bit ridiculous to me ..).But it's still GREAT !!
