I’ve been reading this book for a very long time, but
it’s long and I fell a bit out of it. Then I watched both seasons of Game of
Thrones and got very excited so I’m back in action, and I’ll finish it now.
It’s the most recent book in the Song of Ice and Fire series and it’s very
exciting. Most of my favorite characters are in it, Dany and Tyrion for
example, which is good. I’m excited to see what’s happening, and I’m looking
forward to the next book.
Shades of Grey is a dystopian novel about a world
where your ability to see different shades of colors denotes where you are on
the social ladder. Eddie Russet is a low standing red, he can see red, but
other colors are just shades of grey and have to be colorized by artificial
means. Eddie’s life seems to be going completely okay until he falls for a Grey
woman named Jane. Everything is not right with the world, and maybe there
should be revolution. It sounds exciting, I’m excited.
It’s a novel set in 2033 and the world is a bit crap.
Humanity is almost extinct and the book follows people living in the Moscow
underground system. The surface is full of radiation and the metro works as an
air raid shelter. There is some sort of danger in the fringes of the metro and
the young man Artyom is made to enter to the center of the metro, the Polis, to
alert people to the danger and ask for help. I’ve read some of it, and it seems
I’m trying to read more Norwegian books, and I thought
I’d read Jonas, by Jens Bjørneboe. Jonas is an eight-year-old boy who doesn’t
fit into Norwegian public school system. He runs away and is found and put into
a more specialized school where he can get more help to learn. It is also about
different people and problems, but the main focus is on Jonas. It’s an
important Norwegian book and it’s something you “should” read, so that’s fun.
I will try to read this one if I have the time. This is
a dystopian novel about the world in 2044, when people spend their time jacked
into a cyber-utopia where you can be whoever you want and try to find the
ultimate lottery ticket. If you find and solve the puzzle you can win a lot of
money and a lot of power. The book centers around Wade, who suddenly stumbles
upon the first riddle.
