TLC Book Tour: The Last Book Ever Written

About The Last Book Ever Written

The Last Book Ever Written• Paperback: 280 pages Publisher: PanAm Books; first edition (April 28, 2015)
In a futuristic American society where all citizens have computerized chips in their brains and insert needles into their veins to enter a virtual reality, Victor Vale leads a fairly typical life.  He is an officer of the law with greater ambitions, a family man, and a dutiful citizen of the Nation.  Yet when The Chief assigns him a case to go undercover and expose a community of illegal “creators,” Victor finds himself strangely compelled to write.  For the first time, he starts to question the world around him, and becomes involved in a web of lies, uncertain of whom to trust, and unable to distinguish between virtualism and reality.  As he searches for answers, Victor slowly begins to unravel hidden truths about the world, and even uncovers an astonishing secret from his own past.
The Last Book Ever Written satirizes our competitive, success-driven society, foresees the effects of the economic recession, and warns what could happen if we let technology go too far.

My Review:

I've read a lot of dystopian books--books about children killing children for sport. Books about faction systems and rebelling against the outside. Books about wars against other planets. Those definitely have scary, dangerous implications. But a future where "Creators" (those who write, draw, or engage in anything creative) are punished, physical books are outlawed, and humans have computer chips in their brains? Now that, my friends, freaks me out! Kruvant has written a fantastic novel that has so much creativity (ironic, right?), suspense, and real emotion.  I was immediately intrigued and hungry for more. I devoured this book in 3 days!

The only thing I didn't like? The cover. I know you're not supposed ot judge a book by its cover, but this one just doesn't line up with how exciting the book is. Perhaps its more plain because creativeness is illegal in the book? Hmmm. Regardless, this was a fantastic read, and one I definitely recommend if you're looking for a different sort of dystopian book--one that's exciting, entertaining, and yes--creative. 

Overall rating: 5 stars

  1. Oh yes, the fact that this book seems so much closer to reality makes this one of the scarier dystopian novel out there in my opinion. I'm glad you can recommend it so highly! Thanks for being a part of the tour.
