it was amazing
bookshelves: politically-charged, 2009, young-adult
Read in September, 2009

I don't know what my fascination is with YA literature. I believe that I spend more time thinking about the concepts in the book and how I would discuss them with my children if they were old enough to read these books. I found this book deeply troubling. What troubled me most is that I think there are people today in political power who would look highly upon this progressive repression. I think one thing would be different. Todays politicians would not stoop to the same level of "sameness" just as they have no intention of participating themselves in Universal Health Care. And they do not pay into their own social security like we do. They rely on the tax payers to pay for them.
