Guest Review + Recommendation: Lucie @New Books On My Shelves on XVI BY JULIA KARR

"XVI" BY JULIA KARR 


A dystopia close to "1984" by George Orwell, whose book is mentioned several times. A "Big Brother", able to track people through GPS implanted, listen to your private conversations and an obligation to tattooed women from 16 to guarantee their safety. A world where thinking and silence are prohibited. A state where the brains are appropriately handled through commercial advertising. 
 I love dystopias for the reassuring feelings they give you. You can always close the book by saying it's a fantasy straight out of the mind of the author, if reading bothers us.
Also a view of the world much scarier because the one offered to our reading is always much closer to the real world in which we live than you want to believe.
