Listen folks, it‘s a YA series and I ploweddddd through the first two books. It‘s a great, fast read and such an interesting concept. Highly recommend if you want a fun, engaging read . Disappointed that the third book of the series isn‘t on audible... ⛏ #arcofthescythe #YA #Scythe
Based on the overall concept of Neal Shusterman‘s future society structure — all-knowing repository of human knowledge given full authority to govern the entire globe — you‘d expect to detest such an entity. And yet I kind of love the Thunderhead‘s cleverness, and I am rooting for this dystopia (utopia?) to succeed.

What an original novel! While, from my perspective, parts of it could have moved a little faster, the premise of this dystopian novel is fascinating, the questions Shusterman asks through the narrative provoke thought, and the dual protagonists are compellingly flawed and courageous. I‘m interested to see what he does with the sequel, though I‘m taking a break before I dig into book 2.
