And this year the worst book of the year goes to The Chrysalids by John Wyndham for the 10th year in a row Look up Various people have really enjoyed this novel however I despised it At first there werent any events action or even a plot The author spent about 75 and I mean 75 of the book explaining the setting the lies David the main character has to tell everyday to conceal his power and the ideas racing through his mind everyday Look up I personally enjoy novels that have a lot more action then this one I enjoyed reading novels such as Enders Game and Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card and The Outsiders by SE Hinton Look up These novels had plenty of action that keeps me interested I had to force myself to stop reading However I had to force myself to continue reading The Chrysalids so that I would finish reading it in time for my book report Look up The Chrysalids primarily takes place in a town called Waknuk after World War 3 This town is constantly bombarded with tribulations sent from God to punish those who have sinned However these tribulations are just genetic mutations that were caused by a nuclear war Look up This town is a very holy town They worship god a lot they have bible quotes on their walls as wall paper imagine that having bible quotes as wall paper Look up and they are every careful about destroying tribulations What if Tyson was born with a 6th toe on each foot or if Jackson was born with an extra eye they would all have to be burned Sarcastically This will be sooooooo sad wouldnt it Crops and livestock will also have to be burned Tribulations were very carefully burned because they wanted to keep everything according to Gods image However no one really knows what Gods image is
