The Last Book in the Universe

We just read (listened on cd to) The Last Book in the Universe. It was really good. I can't speak for my wife, but I can try. If she were writing this post she would say something like, "this book was one of the most refreshing books we have read in a long time and you should all read it!" Or something like that.

It is hard to explain what the book is all about without giving anything away or accidentally tarnishing your impression of the book before reading it. But I will say that it is kind of a cross between The Giver and City of Ember, but different. Does that help?

Either way, I will confirm the words that I think my wife would say about the book "you should all read it!"

You can take a look at it here.

...or listen to it on cd. that was kind of fun. Josh and I both have long commutes every week, so it's nice to listen to something.

We'll have to check it out. We loved your recommendation of the Giver "series" (even though it's not really a series, but is), so we'll check it out.

Can't wait to see you guys THIS week!

I read it! Since I am a visual learner, I enjoyed seeing words like Ryter, choxbar, Don Keehote (Don Quixote), proovs, chetty blades and stunstiks. But I also would have enjoyed listening to someone who could read it out loud hopefully with cool slang accents etc. A very enjoyable book with and interesting ending.
