They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I've always believed them.
Now everything has changed.
Now, I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest silver of a second than life a hundred years suffocated by a lie.
There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it.
Then, at last, they found the cure.
Now, everything is different. Scientist are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway 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 then, with only ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable...

5- Amazing!! I want to read it again!
I don't know why I put off reading this book for so long! It was amazing! I bought this book when it first came out and it has been sat on my shelf ever since, I really do wish that I had read it sooner. I loved the world that Lauren Oliver created (not that I want to live in it myself) I thought that it was a very interesting concept that love was an illness and how people could think that it was dangerous. Oliver's writing was just captivating and kept me glued to the page from start to finish.
I loved Lena I found her character so easy to conect to and her voice kept me glued to the page from start to finish. Her and Alex's love story made my heart swoom from the beginning and because of the concept of the story it made it seem even deeper.
Throughout the plot I was kept guessing about what would happen next and it never disappointed! I laughed, I smiled and I cried; this book took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. Lauren Oliver captured first love and love itself perfectly.
