I agree that the world is pretty creepy. I'm not sure how I feel about the idea of (view spoiler) It's also a boring world when it comes down to it. There's nothing to work for or strive towards really. You just exist.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I hope you all love this one. Shusterman is one of my favorite authors. His stuff is fascinating.

Just finished chapter 30 - (view spoiler)

If I didn't have an insanely busy week, I'd probably have finished this book in one sitting - i can hardly put it down as it is!

Btw (view spoiler)

Hey brian :) hope you're enjoying the book so far!

I'll definitely check out some of his other work. I'd never heard of him before all the hype around scythe! Judging by this world and the ideas he's woven into it, he definitely has the potential to become a favourite of mine too :)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments @C.P. I haven't read anything by him before but I own Unwind and I've heard it's fantastic.

@Angela That conversation was brilliant, I want more of those!

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments There are many more books of his that I hope to read. Need to get to some more of them. I've read the Unwind books, the Skinjacker trilogy, Challenger Deep, and the first Antsy Bonano book. And of course these two.


Angela Jr. | 995 comments Chapter 33
(view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments Finished!! What a perfect ending! I freaking loved this book, more than anything I've read in a few months. I loved the world and the characters and I'm definitely reading book 2!

(view spoiler)


Angela Jr. | 995 comments Yes, I'm definitely going to read book 2 as well!

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments I hope you love it as much as I did Brian!


Brian | 1209 comments Great book. Iโ€™m gonna start Thunderhead right away.


Angela Jr. | 995 comments Hey guys, do we have a plan for thunderhead? We could start on sept 22nd, a month after this one. Or are we going to wait for siobhan and do october?
(Tbh my september is so full, I'd be glad to wait 2 weeks into october...)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments My schedule is so jam packed there's no way I could fit it in in September unfortunately.


Angela Jr. | 995 comments Ok, then let's wait for october! Let us know when you get the book, siobhan :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7860 comments I'd say sorry to delay you, but it sounds like you're both too busy anyway! XD

I will definitely let you both know, I'm excited to get to it!
