Book review: Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe by Neal Shusterman
Series: Arc of a Scythe #1
Rating: ★★★★☆

Publication Date: November 22, 2016

Thou shalt kill.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

So, first things first! This was a buddy read with Kelly and I just want to thank her for doing this with me! You can see her review here, which is much more in-depth than mine!

Anyway. My thoughts going into this book were something along the lines of “I hated four of my last five books so fingers crossed for this one.” Not only were my prayers to not hate this book answered, but it actually exceeded my expectations. It’s the first dystopian novel that I’ve really enjoyed in a very long time.

It took me a minute to get into the book, but once I got past chapter five or so, I was really intrigued. The worldbuilding is so well done, the premise is really interesting, I loved the main characters, I really hated some of the side characters, and the whole thing was just so good. I planned out my reading very, very poorly this month and I have to catch up on a bunch of ARCs before I can jump into Thunderhead, but it’s definitely on my more immediate TBR.

Have you read Scythe? What about Thunderhead?
