Lit Circle #1 Final Blog Post

The songs I chose for the soundtrack were mainly focused on running away. My favorite artist Galantis has a song literally titled “Runaway (U&I)” That is all about running away together, to be rid of this place, which I thought was very accurate for Benson’s train of thought the entire book and the balcony scene with Jane when he tries to convince her to run away with him. The things I love about the book include the suspense and constant eeriness of the whole situation Benson finds himself in. The soundtrack is very inclusive in many different types of music but still capturing the overall vibe of the book with lyrics and instrumentals. What I didn’t like about the novel was how there were so many unanswered questions left. I was more confused at the end than I was at the beginning. The soundtrack has a lot of music I don’t really agree with or understand but that’s really not that big of a deal. The novel overall was super interesting and after the reveal of who Jane is, I stayed up way too late that night finishing that book because I was so confused and on the edge the whole time! I wanted answers! I got none, but it was still entertaining to read. What made me sad was multiple people getting sent to Detention and never seeing them again. Do they really die? Did Lily really die? Why kill so many innocent teenagers? Even though some of them are robots? I don’t even know. The book was really riveting and I thought it was kinda fun for a change to have a book that made me feel so uneasy and worried. It wasn’t quite a horror book, but eerie enough to call it that at some points. It’s complicated. I liked the book a lot and gave me a lot of food for thought, but if you want a lot of unanswered questions, then this is definitely the book for you.
