This has a very simple story but the kids liked it.
This is ok, but quite full of action and long.
This book may seem exaggerated in its dystopian vision but is it really so? I look at our world and encounter uncomfortable similarities. #Booked2019 #SocialMediaFocus @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft
This book is a trip and you'll want to jaunt yourself after reading it, LOL. Some allowances have to be made since this was written in the 50s, but I can fully understand why this is in a science fiction masterworks list. All the settings this book goes through, often in a disturbing and very possible dystopian way, make it the revered classic that it is.
Interesting graphic novel adaptation of the classic. I could imagine giving this to teens as an introduction to the epic of Homer. I haven't read The Iliad yet, but considered it a good adaptation even if I think that the ratio of text and images was not always balanced.
A copy of this book was given to me by Netgalley and Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review.
This is quite boring up to 2/3 of the over hyped book. Not much of a plot, both superficial POVs run from one place to another, the answers delayed ad infinitum so that you read on. A pity because the premise hinted at so much more.
The last third of the book was better, perhaps the book would be better if Rhee's POV had been more developed. Her POV was driving the plot, while Aly's felt like repetitive filler. #E for #AtoZLitsy
