The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick is a book far in a possible future, a thousand years after the great "shake". There are genetically engineered people who are designed for health and intelligence and live in a special lush area called Eden. Everyone else lives under grey skies, in a concrete world, trying to get by. Gangs control areas and it is deadly to cross the leader of the your boss or to cross into another zone. No health care, care for orphans, etc.
This is about a guy that gets word his foster sister is dying and he wants to see her one last time. The trip ends up with a orphan boy, an old man, an enhanced girl, and himself crossing many zones. Lots of suspense and action. A very terrifying look at what life could be like but with a glimmer of hope too. ( )

Very interesting story.
In a world where no one reads anymore and everyone gets information through brain probes there is Spaz, an epileptic boy that has lost his family unit, now survives by being an errand boy for the Bangers gang. "Stealing is my job" he says. But when he receives a secret message from his foster father informing him that his foster sister (whom he feels is like a blood sister to him) is deathly ill and wishes to see him, all bets are off. He must travel to the other side of the Urb across territories of three other gangs in order to get to her. With the help of an old gummy named Ryter and a proov named Lanaya and a little kid in tow, they set off for a greater adventure than they could have imagined.
Okay my first question has got to be who ripped off who exactly. This book parallels with verbiage aspects and storyline so close to the book Ready Player One that it is uncanny. considering this book has a copyright of 2000 where I was Ready Player One has a copyright of 2011 I would have to say that answers that question. Perhaps this book was the inspiration for the other, I don't know.
The book itself is written in a very easy to understand manner. It is obviously written to be read by young adults and teenagers as well as perhaps preteens. The plot is very to the point as the book really does not have the girth to go into too much detail. With that in mind the author makes up for it very well in their language and imagination. The names the author uses for things resemble names that we would use regularly but are slightly different and give it that extra feel love dystopian future.
All in all this was a very enjoyable read. This was referred to me by a very good friend (Hi Holly! 🤘🏻). I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who likes interesting dystopian novels and younger readers such as preteen and up. ( )

What an amazing book? So much to say about this. The Last Book In The Universeis about a guy named Spaz and an old man named Ryter going through lenches to go save Spazs' sister that is dying. Its a dystopian telling the tell of life after "The Big Shake" (a massive earthquake) it destroyed everything and life went to hell. It destroyed buildings, set off volcanos, killed billions during and after, there's nothing left of the old world. Its set thousands of years after the earthquake and the world is ash covered, acid rain, extremely poverty and buildings are hollow skeletons, and worst of all there's no book left. And then there's Eden, like all places. It separates the rich from the poor. What's worse of all I feel if the earth continues to be like it is that one day life will be just like the book. ( )
