The premise is the reason I picked this book to read, and the story is why I couldn’t put it down. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading Scythe. Having never read anything from Shusterman in the past, I prepared myself to be jarred by a different writing style than I’m accustomed to. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.
