Zyxwold by Michael Zamboanga

This review is something different for me. It's an ebook, which is a very popular form of book right now. I, personally, don't like them. I want the feel, smell and joy of holding a book in my hand. However, this was a relatively quick read and intriguing so it kept my attention.

It was an interesting read. It's a fantasy story tangled up with politics. The family that is the center of the story have moved to a new world which borders on Nirvana. Most things are free, you do a job you want to do and love doing, you either pass or fail but don't get graded at school, and people share everything. It's not a bit like America today.

The author shares his opinions about wrong in our world today (and I have to agree with him on some) and does it in a story form that keeps you reading along.

Learn about this family's experiences and follow them to Africa and through interactions with other cultures. If you want to read a story that will make you think, this one will do it!
