Book Reviews

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley
    Posted on 8/24/2016 11:43 AM by parmanlibraryteens

    Brave New World reminded me of the world in Fahrenheit 451, except it was infinitely worse. In a future governed by dictator-like “fordships,” people are divided into castes with no religion, love, or freedom whatsoever as they are taught from birth that “everyone belongs to everyone.” The story follows Bernard Marx – who doesn’t fit […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “Lord of the flies” by William Golding
    Posted on 8/9/2016 04:23 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    I’ve been exploring classic literature recently, and Lord of the Flies was on the top of my list as I’d read many raving reviews for it. I wasn’t anticipating, however, that Lord of the Flies would be one of the most haunting novels I’ve ever read. Set during WWII, the story details events that occur […]

Don’t Get Caught has several parallels to The Shadow Club, including pranks, inferiority complexes, and the thin line between harmless and dangerous. Max is a caring, introspective narrator, and I really liked how the novel was written through his perspective […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “The Outsiders” by S.E.Hinton
    Posted on 7/12/2016 04:02 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    I realized today that this novel is a young adult classic for a reason. Hinton’s story is rich and deeply moving, detailing a short episode of the narrator’s – Ponyboy’s – life as he examines how people of different socioeconomic classes tend to segregate themselves and what truly marks these differences, money or otherwise. I’d […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “The catcher in the rye” by J.D. Salinger
    Posted on 7/6/2016 11:31 AM by parmanlibraryteens

    As a more modern classic, The Catcher in the Rye is different from most of the other classics I’ve read. First and foremost, the narrator, Holden Caulfield, is a sixteen-year-old, which I believe will make it easier for teens to relate to this novel on a personal level. In the book, Holden faces disillusionment with […]
