Hi guys !
This is a post that is going to go up every other Wednesday, once I have read a new book I am going to do a review on it just to share my thoughts and feelings on the book.
This weeks book is the first book out of the noughts and crosses series, by Malorie Blackman.
Noughts and Crosses is a book about love and hate. Noughts hate Crosses; Crosses hate Noughts. Noughts are thought to be stupid and they fight for their cause through violence. Crosses are powerful and do not give Noughts a fair chance in life. This is because Noughts are white and Crosses are black.
This is the first book in a series of four, which is a modern take on Romeo and Juliet. Each character has a very unique personality and as you read through the series their personalities get discovered in more detail.
I really enjoyed the book and thought that the author gave her points across really well about discrimination and racism. The book is very sad, and also quite violent, as people fight for their rights. This book latched itself onto my mind – I can't stop thinking about it. It is not always easy to read because of the context, but it grips you so hard that it feels compulsory to read on.
I would definitely recommend this book because instead of reading some boring non-fiction book about human rights you can read this and find out a lot more about these issues. Beware – this book is not for the faint-hearted!
thank you guys for reading, I really do recommend this book , and the other books in the series too
