Book Review || Scythe by Neal Shusterman

32660808. sy475

“If the conscience of the Scythedom fails, replaced by the avarice of privilege, we could become our own worst enemy again.”

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It is a perfect teen adventure for me. The world on which Neal Shusterman created in this book is fascinating. I am captivated by how this world works because there are no deaths! Humanity has conquered all things. This book is pure genius. It gives us an idea or a glimpse of what might occur in the future if we attain immortality. Truly not the best concept, killing people to balance out the population but this book gave us a possible reality if this situation might occur and how people learn to live in this perfect world knowing that it would come to a heavy price.

I am also captivated about how ‘change’ is the most permanent happenstance in humanity, in the world. Especially how morality changes in the process of becoming this world they created and they were not the same being they once were.

Absolutely one of my favorite books! I highly recommend this book especially to those who had fun reading Mortal Instruments or Hunger Games kind of books! This is such a unique well-written story. The characters are great and no interaction nor page is boring. Can’t wait to read the second book!
