Glitch: A Review

glitchOh, dystopian novels, how I love thee! Glitch by Heather Anastasiu is a dystopian YA novel in it’s most realistic form!

The Community protects us all from pain and war. The Community is the only thing that is important. The Community is our life. Zoe is perfectly content in The Community until she starts to “glitch” and form her own thoughts, opinions, and feelings. She finds herself enamoured with the feelings flowing through her and she starts to glitch more and more often. Glitching is dangerous… if The Community were to find out, they’d “fix” her instantly and she’d stop having any feelings of her own. Her glitch also comes with the power of telekinesis… she can move things in her MIND! Why would she want to give up all of these gifts she has control over while glitching? Keeping her glitch a secret might be the thing to kill Zoe, after all.

This probably sounds crazy, but I liked this novel because I felt like it could really happen. I feel like the contentedness of not having our own unique flaws and thoughts might lead the government [The Community] to controlling everything they can about it’s citizens. I really liked Zoe… her thoughts seemed very genuine. Fun story! Can’t wait to read the sequel!

  1. I read this book as an ARC probably a year ago. I wonder when the second one is coming out. I don’t remember a lot of it, except that I thought it was well written.
