    It may be mildly entertaining, but it's nothing special.

    Ethos: I am a somewhat bright 16 year-old, who's read alot of fantasy books.
    Review: This story follows the tale of a pathetic, and un-engaging charecter by the name of Spaz (he has epilepsy). This is just one of the many cheezy nicknames you will encounter throughout the book, including but not limited to: Nails (A lady with long nails), Splat gun (Shotgun), and try to guess what this guy does. . .His name's "Ryter" (must be a musician). Moving on. How the story came to be in the first place isn't well explained, but points fingers at a nuclear holocaust. This makes the setting of the book depressing, to say the least. Making me wonder why you would want to read it, if it seems inteded to bum you out. Something notable, is that people in this book are all drugged out on "Mind Probes", a decent metaphor for how everyone in the real world is drugged out on drugs. He uses this to show that doing drugs doesn't help solve problems. It is, however, a little off, considering that everyone in this book is doing the equivalent of heroin, whereas everyone in the real world is doing the much more harmless, weed. The literary level is more like 5th grade, rather than 10th grade (it's chosen level). Thus, you shouldn't learn any new words from it. The only thing that may keep you reading, is the mildly interresting adventure, and the fact that "Ryter" was somewhat ripped off from a very fascinating Harry Potter charecter by the name of "Albus Dumbledore".

    The last book in the universe

    This would be a very good book for the age range 9-12 as said about the book. This book starts out slow and the starts to speed up twords the middle of the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is not into science-fiction but if you are, this is a good book for you. This book describes a time in the future about 200 years after a giant earth quake that destroyed much of the world including many natural wonders and cities, the earth quake also dried up all of the rivers. The remaining humans are now classified into two groups now, the normals and the genetcaly enhanced. The geneticaly enhanched live in a place called Eden that is protected by land mines and is in the center on a place called the Urb. The normals live in the Urb and struggle to survive while those who live in Eden live in the lap of lactury. This book has great details and i recemend it.
