I'm a 12 year old boy who is advanced reading. In this class we took a test to find out our lexil lvl mine was 1326 (college Junior and higher) after the test the program spit out a personilized list of books for each student and mine said this was one of the books i should read. This book was AMAZING to me because you see i want to become a B.A.U agent when i grow up and studing studing human behvior is part of this and this book really got into human behvior about how differance is the biggiest problem of humans and how we have problems accepting it. This book also gets into how words can rouse a nation and make things sound and look herioc when they are just evil in costume for that is what Hitler did, he talked with fancy words and strict laws to get people to pull the wool over thier own eyes so ya, this book is just amazing everyone has to read it so enjoy.
