That's kind of what the book said at least

ah yes the books..lets face it those books where decent (i never read them all but the matched up with the storyline farily well between the books and game)..except when it came to halo 4's pre-release mini series compared to the halo reach book, although id follow the books over the mini series.

I didn't go that far, but I thought they were pretty good when I read them a few years ago.

I didn't cite Twilight for any particular reason--I certainly didn't mean it as an insult--I was just thinking of recent popular "mainstream" books and those two were the first ones I thought of.

1) The characters don't have depth because depth has been deprived of them. That's the whole theme of the book.
2) You're supposed to think the setting is weird or extreme. She's using this extreme environment to demonstrate the philosophy of individualism vs. collectivism. It's not supposed to be read like a normal story like Twilight or Harry Potter.

Hi just got back on. I normally don't bother to reply to comments this old, but the fact that you referenced twilight insulted me. This argument being as old as it is, I won't respond with a reasonable counter, but I would like to ask that you strike the reference to twilight

I don't like to hate things without giving reasons, so here are a few.
1. The characters don't really have any depth. They're just what you'd expect a normal person to be like under extraordinarily bs circumstances. Which leads me to my second problem.
2. The setting is fucking dumb. It's one of those stories where communism mystically takes over the whole world and everyone follows suit without complaint or resistance

There are more reasons but I don't feel like writing any more.

It's ripe with metaphor. It isn't a story really but a depiction of a dystopian society in which all think it is perfect only because they have fooled themselves into thinking so to cope with the oppression of their free will.....or something.

Oh yea, isn't that the one where the guy transfers thoughts to the kid and it's a take on communism or something? I read that a long time ago, but I'd still say it's better than Anthem if I remember correctly, because it at least had a somewhat realistic approach to how communism could work. People had opinions and lives, but pathways were chosen for them, ect...
Anthem was straight up dystopian nightmare bullshit. It was mildly racist, and reasonably crazy Grandpa's version of how communism works.
