Back with another post! This is a review of the e-book, A Perfect World. It’s written by the author Katalina Gerard. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. You can check out and buy the book here. Here’s a picture of the cover of the book:
So this book is book one of a series. Here’s a quick summary of the book:
Imagine a world with no choice and everyone the same. No choice in food, clothing, or color preference. Where everyone is “special” and has a guaranteed “destiny.” Where there is no negative emotion because the language with which to express it is gone. Where you only run or learn as fast as the slowest in the group. This is the world Gerard creates, and it’s fascinating.
The novel follows Cyrus, a five year old, as he is raised in this blank slate world. He is isolated from the other children in his building and is not allowed to question, for a question is not valid unless everyone has the same desire to know the answer. As a bright child, Cyrus has to continually curb his natural inclination to question and learn because those who don’t are deemed “sick” and removed temporarily and sometimes permanently. Cyrus, however, manages to befriend two other children through unorthodox means, which satisfies their need for human interaction. Still, Cyrus’s world is bleak and days unchanged as they turn into weeks, months and years.
Eventually, Cyrus manages to escape his four walls, which turns the book into a completely new direction.
I really enjoyed reading this book a lot and can’t wait for the next book!
My rating is 10 out of 10. This is a great book that really makes you think and keeps you on your toes.
