characters The Mark

In the future the world has flipped Ravaged by the Conflagration this is a harsh world where the relentless sun beats down people’s lives are run by a heartless elite and law is enforced by a brutal brigade A mark at the base of the spine con. I read this because it is one of the new prescribed books for grade 10 at the school where I m doing observation at the moment I m a little sceptical of genre fiction being used as prescribed texts even though I obviously enjoy science fiction and the like in general so I wanted to see what the rationale was in choosing a book that is obviously following the dystopia girl hero trendAnd after reading it the rationale was clearly someone looking at the cover and going this has a teenage girl and that Hunger Games thing was popular teenagers will like this phew let s clock off early today All other considerations aside this book is a terrible choice for a prescribed text both for first and second language speakersBut first the good I didn t give this book only one star because there were some redeeming features especially in the second half when the story takes off The world has some interesting aspects I especially liked the use of hadeda birds because I loathe them so that got a visceral reaction and with some editing and further development there s potential thereHowever There is a whole lot wrong here and keep in mind this is a book to teach from The writing style is juvenile not in terms of content but the actual structure and style The author uses no contractions which I used to do when I was twelve because I thought it sounded fancier It does not It makes your writing sound stilted and over formal and when the first person narrator is an orphan who grew up in the slums it makes for a very weird distant sounding voice There are short broken sentences lying around everywhere which would have helped the book read a lot faster if it wasn t for the stilted language Unfortunately the combined result is very stop start like someone who doesn t know how to driveWAIT just reminded of a huge problem the blurb on the back of the book holds ABSOLUTELY NO RELATION to the content Seriously What I was so confused and kept waiting for the family killing to start but nope Perhaps the back sets up the series which this is obviously intended to be Which is a terrible choice and makes this book even worse as prescribed literatureAnyway Main character Ettie is a decent character but her internal monologue is too sparse too lacking in emotion and this together with the writing style kept me from connecting with her She states that she has to hide her true feelings all the time so people don t use them against her which is fair enough good and believable character trait but then her thoughts need to show her actual feelings She is an inexplicable robot much of the timeThis is made worse by the fact that for a large part of the story Ettie isn t really the hero Or at least she is unaware of and uninvolved with the machinations going on around her I do think that the side kick or the bystander viewpoint can be interesting but once you realise what s going on it just kind of makes her seem like an idiot view spoiler Of course she is the actual Chosen One but none of that becomes relevant in this book hide spoiler
