Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Classic Rerun

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
Brave New World is a interesting take on the world in the future and how we interact with each other and do or react to things.

 

I read this and, 1984 by George Orwell, a couple of months ago.   In my mind they have jumbled together and I am not sure what scenes come from which book.  I believe after reading other reviews that I do remember the main characters.  One character a man who questions the way people live and the fact they can not question why.   The other character is a woman who the man is attracted to (sorry I don’t remember their names).  The woman is attracted to him as well but just in the way that is normal for society, meaning people are very promiscuous.

 

I have to say that this is another classic that I just wasn’t a big fan of.  I liked it a little better than The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, which if you read my review for does not take much to be better than.

 

If you are a fan of 1984, or Fahrenheit 451, you will probably enjoy as for me I am still in search of a classic that sticks with me and doesn’t make me bored.
