Do you want to live forever or have a mortal life?
" My greatest wish for humanity is not for peace or comfort or joy. It is that we all still die a little inside every time we witness the death of another. For only the pain of empathy will keep us human. There’s no version of God that can help us if we ever lose that. "
- Scythe by Neal Shusterman.
I read this book a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. A definite recommend for readers who loves the Purge Series or the Belko Experiment. Its a fast paced book and I sometimes found myself loosing track of time in my dormitory when there's like 5 minute till class starts lol. But warning, its not a heavy romance book, there is romance but its not that "OMG GOALS #BOOK OTPS OMG *FANGIRL SCREAM *FANGIRL SCREAM" kind of type. But its really fun, trust me.
The plot is about a future world where death is not in people's list of greatest fear anymore. Death is now controlable. So, yeay immortality to everyone! But how's Earth going to fit an entire population if there's no one dying? Thats where the Scythes come in. Their job is to kill or 'glean' people under a certain statistic or quota. People look up to them. And they do not question the Scythes if they are chosen to be glean. Now the plot start with two characters who got picked as apperintices of a famous Scythe. Here's the catch, in the end, one will be ordain as a Scythe and the other will be glean by the newly oradained Scythe. So you win, congrats you can kill people! You lose, you die. .
Interested? Go read it! .
