The writing is fluid Lauren Oliver writes beautifully. But the story is slow going and I had a very hard time believing that love could be a disease.
Oliver writes a story where love was seen as a dirty illness and yet its still so strong for these two young people Lena and Alex that they are willing to risk everything they have ever known to be together. In this world the chances of death as a punishment are very real.
I found the view of the government and the book of shh (a distorted view on the bible) disturbing..but the fight in the sympathizers & believers like Hannah like Lena like Alex even more brave.
This was a well thought out book filled with poems, rhymes, saying.. It was very impressive I cant praise Oliver enough.
I loved this book, it was beautiful and thought provoking.
