Anthem Review

Anthem is quite confusing when reading the first couple of pages. When I figured out that there was no "I" in their language or thinking, the book made a little more sense to me. I both dislike and like this story. I dislike this story because of the ending. I want to know more about what they did after they found the house from the Unmentionable times. I liked this story because of Equality 7-2521's rebellion. He chose to love The Golden One even when he was not supposed to and he developed the reuse of the lightbulb which caused him to be rejected in front of the World Council. This story shows the importance of freedom and individuality. I really enjoyed Anthem by Ayn Rand.

Untamed Review

The House of Night series is my new Twilight Series, but not as intense. Truthfully I like the Twilight Series better but the House of Night series runs a close second. Zoey Redbird is a unique fledgling at the House of Night in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is gifted with the affinity for all five elements, Wind, Earth, Fire, Water, and Spirit. She is very unique. No other fledgling, or a type of freshman, has every been that gifted. Untamed is the fourth book in the series, and like all of the others, is amazing. There is constant suspense and even romance. The perfect combination! I recommend this book to every girl who enjoyed the twilight series and even to the ones that did not like the series. Besides Twilight, this is the best series I have ever read.

338 pages.

To Perfect My World.....

Is there a way to perfect my world? There are several ways but the majority lies under the category of Dictatorship. I am by no means going to be a dictator. The world we live in is not perfect by any means but is better than most. I personally do not think that I could perfect this world. In order to gain Utopia there must be Dystopia. Therefore my world could never be perfect. To achieve Utopia I must overcome the Dystopia, which then could cause more Dystopia. For example, in the book Anthem by Ayn Rand, Equality 7-2521 lived in a supposed to be Utopia. The World Council is basically a dictator who controlls everybody. They end up taking the will from people. The civilians have no will to live because they have taken their freedom and have nothing to look forward to. Eventually, when trying to overcome Dystopia, I would be taking the freedom away from the people and controlling what they can and cannot do, which is wrong! There is no way to perfect my world without it leading to dictatorship.

Kiss Review

How would you like to be a medical experiment without even knowing? Within the last week or two I have read the novel Kiss by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy. Shauna (the main character) has had a very rough life. She had a major car accident that put her in to a coma and made her brother half brain dead. When she wakes up from the accident six weeks later she cannot remember anything from the past six months! That would be awful! This book is full of suspense that never ends! I did not want to put this book down! She later finds out that her well trusted friends we actually her worst nightmares. I could not imagine finding that out for myself. On her long journey of trying to regain her memory she finds out interesting/heartbreaking/major eye-opening facts.


In the end of the book she finds out that Wayne (her supposed to be boyfriend) tried killing her in that dreadful car accident and Patrice, her dads wife, planted her car and her apartment with Ecstasy. Then told the doctors to inject some her her blood stream to make it look like the accident was all her fault. In reality, her dad's company's faculty tried to kill Shauna by hiring hit men to set up the accident. I was shocked! She ends up surviving all of her harsh treatment and finding her "true" love and getting back in the family! Happy endings are my favorite!
