really liked it
bookshelves: dystopian, ya
Read in March, 2011

I really liked the premise for this book...a world without love or passion; a world that "fixes" teens in order to anesthetize them from love for it is the root of all of the world's problems...war, suicide, depression...but seriously why would you want to exist in this environment? I would give this book 3.5 stars...I thought the premise was better than the characters themselves. I just want a story with characters that I can stand-up and cheer for and this wasn't it. Still, I will read the next book when it comes out, but I won't be dying of anticipation.
