by Ally Condie

I shouldn't like these books but I do.  It is one of those sick addictions that are unexplainable, or are they.  I love the idea of impossibility not being just that impossible.  That there is no absolute easy solution or black and white way.  We don't really know the people around us and that makes us just that much weaker.  Bonds whether romantic or friendly are what really makes things move, gives purpose to every day life.  In order to reach those things we want we always seem to have to give some things up.  At the same time this book seems to say that you can be happy no matter the path you chose.  It is all in how you decide to accept and perceive your reality that makes the difference.  Now what will you do?  Go gently, or rage against the dying of the light?
