SOOOO First I want to say OOPS I accidentally took a hiatus of 10 days but I still had posts scheduled. HAH. BUT I’M BACK. And since I didin’t post on Friday I’m catching up with this smol review of Scythe which was unexpectedly fabulous! And to think I put off reading it for a whole year!
Wow, I am surprised by how much I enjoyed this?!?!? But, like, also NOT bahahaha because it’s basically all about stabbiness and killing which is GREAT.
first great thing: a competition to the DEATH. #winning.
A world without death, so people have to be appointed to kill other people to avoid overpopulation. LURVE. Like. It’s an actual legit job.
The scythedom – all the people with a license to kill, AKA glean, is just begging for some corruption and sickos who enjoy killing and way overindulge.
Enter our primary villain, Scythe Goddard. HE’S SO MALICIOUS.
There are two wonderfully moral Scythe Mentors, which is great but I much prefer the apprentices. Especially Rowan because he struggles with his humanity. #tortured
Some of the plot twists I saw coming and some of them I didn’t but overall I am quite pleased and definitely feel ready to read the sequel! SOMEONE GIVE IT TO ME NOW. (apparently getting free books randomly isn’t a thing. RUDE)
OH and the thunderhead is the Artificial Intelligence that rules the world and is basically like a kindly old wise woman. The thunderhead has my heart, guys!
Have you read Scythe? What were your thoughts on it?? What are your feelings on morally grey books in general? (HINT: There is a wrong answer here. JUST KIDDING. Maybe)
