Scythe – We have mastered Humanity. We are no longer mortal and there is no more crime or poverty. The year is 2045. “The cloud” that we know became a somewhat conscious machine we now call The Thunderhead. It has helped them go into the perfect utopia. Two teens make an unlikely acquaintance. Scythe Faraday. Who then makes Citra and Rowan his apprentices. Neither want to become a scythe but one of them has too. A scythes job is to “glean” people so the world doesn’t become over-populated.
I really love this book. It is so unlike any other books I’ve read. We are in a Utopia and the way to keep the population down is to get Scythes who kill selected people. It is an amazing read and I highly recommend it.
