Blurb (from Goodreads):
In a dark and desolated After Earth, love still does exist, but the cost of bearing such a flaw is death.
World War III has left Earth in utter turmoil. People’s beliefs are said to be the cause of the worldwide destruction. After The Clearing new laws are set about - to show certitude in anything besides the law is weak and chargeable as mutiny. To be illogical and have faith in religion is illegal, to be limitless is dangerous. And Illness is seen as a defect – all flaws that are inexcusable.
But to love is the greatest betrayal of all man kind. It is a fault the world has long forgotten and punishable by death, a fatal risk Aecker and Opel are fully prepared to take - because in love there is freedom. But how far can they push back before it claims their lives and of those they care about?
My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
This was an okay story, but it wasn’t for me.
I don’t know why but I didn’t really enjoy this book, we got a bit of action and a bit of drama, but I just found that this book didn’t hold my attention, and I didn’t feel anything for any of the characters. I think this was probably just a case of wrong person, wrong book, but it was missing something for me, and I was pleased that it ended early.
