    Bookmark Notes:

    This was ... difficult to read, because it's basically a dystopia that is convinced it's not a dystopia.

    Imagine not feeling emotions anymore, because the government makes you take pills that stop you from feeling things.

    (Hey, I never read The Giver in school, so it was a new-ish concept to me. The idea was also explored in the movie Equilibrium, which is actually a pretty cool movie.)

    And then imagine that you accidentally stop taking your pills...and start feeling things. And realising that feeling feelings (English sucks, sometimes)--even the bad ones--is so much better than feeling nothing at all.

    And then imagine that while you're off your pills, you fall in love with a teammate, who you're convinced will never love you back, to that level or that intensity. Yeah.
