Things change often.

This is officially my second post.
So recently, I issued the book 'GENESIS' out, hoping it'd be a book that I would take interest in. But sadly, it was the opposite. 

Reading five pages into it, the story started becoming more clear that it was basically all about Anax (the main character) and her examination to get into a very elite school. 
The story was understandable but i just couldn't connect to it at all and instead of trying to comprehend, i chose the easy option - to return the book and get a new book out.

"The book Genesis is actually about an idea rather than a character trying to pass an interview. In the end, it is revealed to Anax that she, along with all others who wish to join the 'academy', are risks to the entire society because of the fact they have been infected with a sort of... idea. The idea is one created with the robot highlighted in the main part of the story when, in her exam, she is explaining what happened between the man she is studying, and the robot he was forced to live with.
The book merely plays on the fact that ideas spread so easily from person to person and once they're implanted on the subconscious, are practically impossible to get out. In the end she is executed after finding all of this out from the examiners because she has been one of those implanted with the idea..." VIA Georgia Moore. 

The book which I took out after GENESIS was 'Purple Heart'. I've only read a few pages, and it seems quite intriguing. Hopefully Purple Heart won't be a book I'd put down straight away after the thirty minutes of reading time is up.


That is all.
Peace. (:

    It was only boring at the start.

    1. Oh God! Thank you! I was hoping someone would explain the story to me as I have only read half of the first chapter... >> Don't judge me...

      I just didn't quite understand the logic it was uttering. So my comprehending skills failed.
      Hence my boredom towards it.

    2. I had to reread it before I understood it completely. I assume thats why they chose it as a book you've got to read for level 2 english: MAKE THOSE PEOPLE THINK.
