June 2013 Reading

June 2013 Reading:

28. The Menace from Earth, by Robert A. Heinlein (189 pages)
A good variety of stories were included in this anthology. A few were only okay, but most of them were quite enjoyable. I liked how the stories sometimes left off for the reader to wonder what happens next.

29. The Road, by Cormac McCarthy (287 pages)
The journey through this dead world is riveting. This was a surprisingly fast read, with lyrical language that resembled poetry. I loved how we never really found out exactly what caused the apocalypse. We're left to guess, as I'm sure most of the survivors are.

30. Across the Universe, by Beth Revis (398 pages)
I really enjoyed this sci-fi dystopia. I think the most disturbing idea was the tyrant's claim that difference and individual thought are bad. The idea people had been taught that Hitler was a great man. The disturbing change to the Gettysburg Address and history in general. A "whitewashing" of sorts to history to make it work for the tyranny's purposes. No, actually, the disturbing part of this is how true it rings.
