Publisher's Summary

Two teens must learn the "art of killing" in this Printz Honor-winning book, the first in a chilling new series from Neal Shusterman, author of the New York Times best-selling Unwind Dystology series.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: Humanity has conquered all those things and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life - and they are commanded to do so in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe - a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Scythe is the first novel of a thrilling new series by National Book Award-winning author Neal Shusterman in which Citra and Rowan learn that a perfect world comes only with a heavy price.

    Story
    "Teenage Thumbs up"
    What made the experience of listening to Scythe the most enjoyable?

    Every road trip, I seek out an audiobook that can please all 3 of my kids (now 12 [girl], 13 & 15 [boys]). Let's just say I've been striking out the last few years. This time was different. After each chapter, all three were asking for more. And on a typical road trip that is balanced between listening to a book, playing car games, resting, and watching movies, this time was all Scythe! My 15-year-old son, who no longer wished to read for enjoyment, said that 1. he wants to "read" it again, and 2. he wants this to be turned into a film. Listening to this book was truly the highlight of our road trip!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It felt like a combination between The Giver and The Hunger Games.


    What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

    His voices were seamless and spot on!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Scythe- kill with conscience.


    Any additional comments?

    We are hoping the next installment in the trilogy comes out before our next road trip!

    "Well Written Novel"

    Loved it however I was not satisfied as much with the ending as I wanted to be, maybe that was the point. Looking foward to the sequel.

    "Abstract Symbolism "

    This was one of the most abstract books I've ever read. The symbolism with in will truly make you think about the world we live in today and question yourself as a person and as a part of society. Would suggest to the young and old .

    "Bad"

    I love books by Neal Shusterman so when I saw this I barely looked at the summary before buying it. I wish I had waited. The book is just bad. It flounders back and forth and the characters aren't very sympathetic. The students supposedly loved their mentor but I just wasn't feeling it. There was also supposed to be an underlying romance between the characters which I found hard to believe. I think essentially the book tried to cover too much in too short of a time and did a bad job of it.

    Story
    "Neal Shusterman at His Best"
    What made the experience of listening to Scythe the most enjoyable?

    The story kept me up past midnight as I had to know how it concluded.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved The Good Guys and hated The Bad Guys just as it should be in any great book!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can not elaborate as just about any comment would be a spoiler. Basically loved it all.
