Long on Explanation, Short on Developement
Although the idea of arresting a book seems far fetched, as a librarian I know for a fact that it is not an impossible one. And what happens if the arrest goes through?? Where does the book actually go? Hopefully, the Middle school book might just be sent to the High School, the high school book might be sent to the public Library, but, never, never should the book be burned.This has happened in many more countries than we would like to think about! So, I am all for the story about the book, any book.The part about censoring the school newspaper was right on the mark! I was not,however, very much impressed with the developement of the characters or the plot of the book. I just do not feel that I know enough about Mr.Moore, Luke and his friends,Deidre Fitzgerald, the librarian or anyone else in the story.I understand that the main idea of the story is to bring home the idea of censorship in any form. In my opinion, the real seed of the problem should have been about Cultural differences. The best quote!! 'Show me a book that offends no one and I will show you a book that no one wants to read' Hmmm I think I could adopt this quote!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
