March Reads 2019: The List

The List ; written by Patricia Forde

Summary

What would you do if you could only speak from a list of 500 words? Ark is the last safe place on Earth; the rest is overrun by water. To make sure this never happens again, the wordsmith, a person who controls which words people can use, must keep a strict list of 500 words. If anyone speaks words outside of the list, they risk banishment, which guarantees your death. Letta is the new wordsmith after her master disappears. But when a mysterious boy shows up hurt on her door step and an anonymous tip suggests that her master can be saved, Letta finds herself in a very precarious position. Read the book to see how this story turns out.

My review

The List was a interesting book! I loved its unique story and brave characters. Letta never gave up, even when her odds of success didn’t look so good. I have to say, the book was a little heavy. By this I mean to say that Letta faced one problem after the next. It seemed as though she would never win! However, she had a lot of determination and never gave up. Also, these continuous problems kept me intrigued. I could barely put it down!

Recommended reading age

I would recommend this book for 10 year olds and up because it wasn’t a complex story. While I thoroughly enjoyed the book, I did feel that I was a little old to be reading the book ( I just turned 13). All in all, it’s a great book!

Conclusion

The List is a fantastic book that makes you realize how much of a privilege it is to have free speech. Even today, many people around the world don’t have the ability and privilege to say what they want to say and when they want to say it. To all those people: hang in there. We are rooting for you. A entertaining story, The List was a quick and fun read. Below are two links: one to buy this book and the other to learn more about this fabulous author. Please comment below and give me feedback on my blog, my writing or my stories. I would love to hear all of it! Happy Reading everyone!

Hello! My name is Hannah and I am a devote book reader. I have read both popular books and unknown books. However, I feel that the latter are more unique and more interesting than the popular books that everyone knows. I wanted to bring the lesser known books into the light. If you read my blog, you might find your new favorite book! Thanks and enjoy!
