Wonderful book. It makes me appreciate the talent of the movie makers more because they captured so much of the wonderful stuff and weren’t tempted by some of the minor stories in the book.
It’s eerie how this book’s tale feels as if it could happen so easily. A little nudge here or an overreaction there and you find yourself in this world. Readers should find strength in the book as it shows how easy it is to control others is to remove their ability to read. how on of the ways to control is to remove their ability to learn to read or remove the need to read.
