Is Dry as good as Scythe and Thunderhead?


28.04.2019 01:20

Hi Tracey. While they are all by Neal Shusterman, it's difficult to compare them as Dry felt realistic and Scythe is far more futuristic. I love Neal's style and recommend all of the above!

Hi, if you liked John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, I would recommend his podcast, The Anthropocene Reviewed.

Hi Annie. This is tough as I don't know your age, but at the time I reviewed Akarnae I also loved books by Rick Riordan, Brandon Mull, The Hunger Games series and the original Greek myths
