In a world where books are seen as contraband, and a corrupt library runs the world--Knowledge is a privilege given to select few. The world and concept are really unique, which left us intrigued to start a series unlike anything we’re ever read together. As a whole, we had mixed reviews: Some felt the story and its intense drag them right in, while others really struggled with getting through the book. We saw many similarities between the book and our political structures today in the way that the library is depicted holding all the power. We are essentially only provided with pre-approved information communicating whatever they see fit. In a world where knowledge, books, and access to information is very important, the story sends us message that the books we read shape us into who we will become. ((A few of our witches caught themselves reminiscing of the Hogwarts Express--maybe you will too!!))
