Finished this book last night, it gave me tachycardia and left me with thoughts to ponder.

How would you like to live in a world where you can get rid all of your fears and dislikes; the violence, poverty, pain, injustice, and prejudice and top it with good conduct as a way of life. Ah, yes a utopia as it may seem, but without the colors, the music, the emotions- good or bad, and the wisdom that comes with the memories and experiences… is it really worth it?

How far would a soul go to achieve the freedom it wants?

For how long will a heart wait in anguish and remorse to attain its deepest desires?

What are the things that really matter?

Is it wrong to feat for something that would change everything you have ever believed in for the sake of making things right?

What is the true measurement of bravery and honor? Of mediocrity and power?

What makes a certain deed the “proper” thing to do instead of the “right” thing to do?

Reading the book was so worthwhile.
One of those stories that made something stir inside of me and will forever haunt me in my waking life.
Two thumbs up! :)
