In one sense, this work and the rest of the series are young adult novels. They are quite short, easy to read, and feature young protagonists. In another sense, this work by Samuel Youd transcends age boundaries. I would rate these works as on par with the great children’s works, like Harry Potter and even the Hobbit. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of some, I feel like there has been a tremendous shift in the past decade of their popularity. Unlike many children’s novels, there is a direct acceptance of the unfortunate, needless and brutal. While I see this as strength to the novels, this does contradict our highly post-modern culture to some extent. I also opine this book as asking a very timely message to children and adults alike: By relinquishing our rights, individuality, and purpose to serve an addiction-pleasure-driven society, are we truly happy? You will have to read it to find out.
