CARVE THE MARK BY VERONICA ROTH BOOK REVIEW

5/5

I started this book in good faith (meaning I didn’t read the blurb) mainly because I read the synopsis sometimes last year and while I couldn’t remember what the book was about except it’s supposed to be a dystopian novel (or sci-fi ? ) I remembered I had interest in it and also because of the divergent series. I only read book one of the trilogy- divergent; I saw the movie first and  It’s rare for me to enjoy both book and the movie adaptation, it’s either I like the book and not the movie or vice versa so if I happen to watch the movie before reading the book I usually don’t bother except in rare cases (Twilight series, Fifty shade series, currently struggling to read the mortal instrument series but that series is loooong and the only reason am making an effort is because I want to read the spin offs and I hear Jace are not really related Clary ).

I liked the movie so I read divergent while waiting on Insurgent & Allegiant ( the movies). I liked, not enough to continue the series but enough  for Veronica Roth  to get on my authors I read list . She didn’t disappoint. Like I said before I didn’t read the blurb so I had to keep guessing at what the book might be about and when I thought I had an idea of what the conflict is, it got sorted and a new one arise. I like the way it ended; with a cliff hanger but not one so great to make me spiral.

I don’t what to say too much about it since it just got published and I don’t want to spoil it for anybody but I wanted to recommend it incase anyone was in doubt whether to pick it up or not plus there’s some kind of controversies surrounding this book that I don’t understand but I think it’s a cool book and worth recommending.

I rate this book 4/5 and I recommend it to all lovers of good writing, well detailed world and good plot. Looking forward to the next book, thumbs up to Veronica Roth she’s amazing and I give this book a glowing recommendation.

This is Freedom

untitled-picture

Pick a call, make a decision

The noise of their silence roar

Judging with their expressionless eyes

As they seat still their restlessness rubs off

Make a choice, join a race

Their mouth sings from a locked lips

In silence they judge

In patience they hasten

One step to get away

Two steps to get away

More to allow more distance

To keep from seeing the contrast between the speech and action

More steps and then ……..

Down goes the journey

The moment before reaching the bottom

The moment that separates the before from the after

The time when life flashes

And the knowledge that’s obviously too late comes

The roar is within

Their condemmnation is heard

But only because of the voice howling in agreement from within

Quiet the storm inside

And the inner giant can overcome their little yaps

As the splash of the many waters is heard

And despair mix with dread

Final thoughts sings

Maybe the waters will sing the story

Maybe the waters will keep the memories

Maybe one day it will howl it out

And keep another from taking the leap

The roar is within

Down down down

And then a hand reaches

Up up up

The after moment

Deep breathe

This is life

It is good

This is freedom

It is freeing
