I liked this book because it speaks about real problems. Society Julia Karr created could possibly become our own.
’’Government controls the Media, the Media controls us.’’
Even now we’re surrounded with advertising, from all sides we’re being told what to think, what to like, how to behave.
Dystopia in XVI makes perfect sense, there’re no pointless factions; people are brainwashed via media, tracked down with GPS devices implanted in them, unable to freely speak. Then the sex issue. Sixteen year old girls are called sex-teens. They’re being taught how to be more alluring to men, that having sex is the most important thing. Another issue in today’s society as well. Sex today is not a taboo as it has been before, so it’s very possible that in the future we face something similar as portrayed in XVI.
