The world is a dystopian nightmare, where saying the wrong word can get you literally killed. Ms. Bynum convincingly gives us this fascistic regime, a world of legalized prostitution to quiet the masses and government sanctioned mutants used to fish out and destroy the rebellious. But the rebellion lives on and the struggle to take back a language stripped more and more of its words is laid out in precise terms. The author plays expertly on current fears, twanging the nerves and forcing us to take a close scrutiny at the murmurs of censorship currently at work in our own societies. You can almost believe in her future world, considering that there are places that burn Rowling’s books for promoting witchcraft.
