Brave New World
by Aldous Huxley

View in Library Catalog



This was a really interesting book that takes you to a "perfect" world. This perfect world is created by wiping out everything that scares people and doesn't keep them calm. This includes god and even aging. They create babies as robots and whenever people are scared they just drink alcohol to keep themselves calm. This book challenges a futuristic world with a world we have today. It was portrayed really well by the author as it convinces many how good this new futuristic world is even if it sounds ridiculous on paper. I would recommend this book to many as it helps give you a different perspective of our society. This book was slightly hard to read due to the time period it was written, though you would still be able to understand the novel.

The novel, Hatchet, is an adrenaline filled story fo a boy stranded in the isolated woods of Canada. Brain Robeson was on his way to see his father after their parents split up, when his plane crashed and landed in a shallow lake in the middle of the woods. He quickly realizes how he is stranded alone in the wilderness and he must take care of himself to survive. Brain, although 13, has a wide span of knowledge of how to survive in the wild, and he uses his with to build shelter and find food. Through his journey he comes in contact with several conflicts such as bears and poisonous berries. The book is a marvelous adventure that is sure to keep the reader intrigued all throughout. Due to some gruesome and inappropriate scenes in the book, I would recommend that teens over the age of 13 should read.

by Steven Levenson

Everyone is familiar with the famous Broadway Musical, Dear Evan Hansen, which is what inspired me to read this novel in the first place. I was very pleased and surprised by a plot that was not familiar to me before; as a result, I was compelled to keep reading at a quick pace. I loved how the authors accurately depicted the lives of many high school students and issues that people have to deal with today. The main character, Evan Hansen, is the depiction of a raw human being

Scythe is about people being chosen as scythes, who are the only ones who can end lives. Other than that, people are immortal, unless killed by scythes. This book follows Citra and Rowan on their journeys to becoming scythes. I enjoyed reading this book because I enjoy dystopian books the best. I would highly recommend reading this book to anyone who is deeply interested in the dystopia “realm”.
