Synopsis: Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't.

Review: It's taken me a little while to review this book. When I read it, I rushed it and I wasn't really enjoying myself while I read it because I was basically forcing myself to finish the book. Now that I've started reading the sequel and given myself some time off, I have come to appreciate the novel. I thought that it was stupid and rushed into things, but then I realized that it was just an introduction and of course it was going to leave things open ended. I mean come on, Molly; it's a trilogy. I still don't think it deserves a rating of four or five hearts, but it's definitely around the average rating. I would reccomend this book because it's a new take on dystopia, but I'm not going to be rereading it anytime soon.
