Written by Emma Trevayne.

Okay, to be honest I haven’t finished this book and I’m not sure I’m going to. It’s an interesting story-line but there are a few things I didn’t like about it.

The summary:

Anthem lives in a world where the only music you’re allowed to listen to has been tampered with in such a way that the people who listen to it react to it as though it was a drug. Anthem and a group of friends gather together in secret to practice “real” music. Anthem wishes he could get away and stop listening to the music but if he does the Corp will kill him.

I felt like the story developed too slow, and normally I wouldn’t write a book review until I finished reading the book, but I have a huge reading list to get through, so since I didn’t particularly like this book I figured I should write about what I thought anyway.

I don’t really like books with a lot of swearing in them, and this one had more cursing that a movie about the US Navy. I think this is partly why I don’t really want to finish the book. I also think part of it was just because there were some really confusing points, not in the story-line, but in small details. Like sometimes I couldn’t tell who was talking, or where Anthem was. It was just really hard to follow along with the small parts of the book that make up the story.

I just didn’t really like this book. I’d rate it a 3 out of 10.

Thanks for reading.
