Read + Review: Scythe by Neal Shusterman


The book Scythe was an interesting book packed with adventure and mystery. The book is about a world in the future where death is controlled by a group called Scythes.The book revolves around two characters, Citra and Rowan who are apprenticed to a Scythe. Both of them never had the thought of being a scythe nor being apprenticed to one.

I thought the book was very well written. As it was packed with much action and drama. The setting was very well thought of with human beings controlling death in the future. The futuristic aspects in the book are also very detailed and make the reader feel like they were in a future setting.

Something memorable about the book would be when we first learned about the mass gleanings(Killings) by Scythes.That was very unexpected and had surprised me.
