WAYRW #8

Here’s what I’m reading this week in What Are You Reading Wednesday – #8.

What Are You Reading Wednesday #8

1. What’s the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

RED QUEEN by Victoria Aveyard

QUOTE? “This is the true division between Silvers and Reds: the colour of our blood. This simple difference somehow makes them stronger, smarter, better than us.” – Page 34

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE THERE? Perhaps – I’m not ruling it out, although being anyone related to royalty pretty much ensures a cut throat environment regardless of where the setting is.

NINETEEN EIGHTY FOUR by George Orwell

QUOTE? “Even from the coin the eyes pursued you. On coins, on stamps, on the covers of books, on banners, on posters, and on the wrappings of a cigarette packet—everywhere. Always the eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, working or eating, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or in bed—no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull.” – Page 34

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE THERE? Definitely not! This dystopia, in which the Thought Police can arrest you for even Thought Crimes against the government – where privacy is a myth – would be horrible.

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE by Anthony Burgess

QUOTE? “It did not take long to quieten these two wounded soldiers down in the snug of the Duke of New York, what with large brandies (bought with their own cutter, me having given all to my dad, and a wipe with tashtooks dipped in the water-jug.” – Page 34

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE THERE? Clearly not. The slang use is completely different, for a start, so I wouldn’t understand what was happening anyway. From what I gather, it’s also very violent and not at all a pleasant sort of place to live.
