The Chrysalids Imagine living in a place where there seemed to be a sense of evil in the eyes of everyone except David Strorm This place was called Waknuk Waknuk was a place where anything out of the norm was wrong and sinful and could even end in a consequence as serious as death Life was good for those who believed and practiced the Waknuk religion For those whom were not believers in the Waknuk religion found life to be hard and unfair Throughout Davids life in Waknuk he was faced with many tools of evil such as prejudice pride and deception David painfully learned that that prejudice causes individuals to be isolated from each other pride causes individuals to mistreat each other and finally that deception causes much hurt and distress among individuals The first tool of evil that I found present in The Chrysalids was prejudice David was faced for the first time in his life a tool of evil -- prejudice It all started the day he met Sophie Wender She was peering through the bushes when David was playing happily in a sand pile They soon became best friends and enjoyed playing together for endless hours One day as they were playing Sophies foot became caught between two stones When David helped her free her foot he saw that she had six toes on each foot Her toes really did not bother David in fact it made their friendship grow deeper in trust They enjoyed going down to the stream to go catch little creatures Sophie now felt quite comfortable around David and often took off her shoes to reveal her six toes Their world came shattering down when Alan Ervin saw Sophies footprint in the dirt that clearly showed her six toes Sophie was now discovered She and her family had to flee because the community of Waknuk was very prejudice and they would probably end up killing Sophie
