- If I have not love, I am nothing.....Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
- 1 Corinthians 13
Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That's what it is: and edge; a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.
Before and after-and during, a moment no bigger or longer than an edge.In ninety-five days Lena will be cured of amor deliria nervosa. She is not afraid. She will not resist. Lena is ready. Alex has a secret that could turn her world upside down, and cause her to question everything she believes is real. Will Lena succumb to the disease or race for the cure?
I have read other books where the people are being controlled by a corrupt government and this is the first I have read that looks at love as something disdainful. I did not like the ending because it left me hanging..In this society the people think they are cured from love/emotion however they just seem so indifferent to everything, even children getting hurt. Yet, they still have emotion but it's just violent and misguided.Some reviewers were dissatisfied with the book, however I think it has potential as an interesting series, and I am curious to see how the characters grow. I would give this book to teens interested something different than the fairy/angel/vampire books.
My rating 3.8 out of 5 stars
