It’s still a satire, but not in the degree Mccfferty was. You see her at the average U. If English isn’t your native language I should probably warn you that Bumped is full of slang and strange words and sometimes it’s hard to understand. Your session has expired. I’m sad that this is the last book!!! Let’s write a book with a lot of sex talk, religious talk and consumerism talk – squish it all together in one controversial read and let everything sort itself out in the end.
Instead of approaching it from a legislative angle, it’s all about peer pressure and popularity and trends.
But in mccaffrety culture, the language of conceiving, childbearing, and sexing is slangy, hip, edgy.
Of course, on the surface our society seems so different, yet there are alarming similarities between our world and the world painted in this book. Every female dies at 20!

Identical twins bumped with twins due on the same day. I was just left dangling from a rope with no safety net in sight! Harmony goes against the good side and decides to chop off her hair which she has been growing for her whole life.
Oh and the slang that the author used I couldn’t grasp until about halfway through the book. When George Orwell wrote it inpeople were probably sceptical as well. Not bumps or pregs or deliveries. Well after a couple of years of this teens and th This book was definitely not for me. This is a CD cover for one of Korn’s albums.
OMG I won this as a goodreads giveaway! And the terminology that the characters use was interesting. Thumped is such a fun book and hard to put down once you start!

I also do not recommend this for teens. Both characters feel stereotypical at first — Melody sounds like a self-absorbed over-achiever, and Harmony mgan a classic Bible-thumper.
Despite being from vastly differing different backgrounds, both twins have a questioning bent of mind, in societies where questioning the norm is not encouraged. And I was not disappointed! I also missed Zen as he was in the first book. If English is your first language you’ll have no trouble deciphering their future-slang. We can see the confused teenaged girls in them.

You cannot tailor-make God to fit your own desires and whims; and the Bible is not to be spit upon no matter how subtly you do it. The biggest risk of all could be to finally tell the truth. Melody’s parents, for instance, were awful people, using their daughter for their own profit.
He also acts as a de facto voice of reason. Harmony has spent her whole life in Goodside, a religious community, preparing to be a wife and mother.
Seguir comprando Pagar Seguir comprando. It’s a world where females — teen girls — have lost rights to their own bodies. View all 7 comments. Yeah, I laughed too The breakneck speed of the switches makes it difficult to develop a connection to the characters or keep track of what in the heehaw is goin’ on. Her gut instinct is that they would make great mccqfferty, and she truly would like to help them out in that regard.
This is how you do it, folks. The writing is still mediocre, but it was a decent conclusion to the first story. My only hope is that the opposing world consisting of paid teen negan is never brought to life as I feel that would lead to the end of our days living happily on earth.

For instance, the virus McCafferty writes as the catalyst for this dystopia would be a total social fact, something that would permeate through all aspects of society. BUMPED is an example of a dystopian society that is so fully realized and self-sustaining that it becomes very difficult for us outsiders to access.
While there are a number of important male characters in the story ones that were especially influential in BumpedI didn’t spend much time caring about them in Thumped. When a virus makes everyone over the age of eighteen infertile, would-be parents pay teen girls to conceive and give birth to their children, making teens the most prized members of society. Even though he’s a bit too love sick, Jondoe is still somewhat likeable. Does Jane Austen write YA?
Thumped picks up eight and a half months later, both identical twins, Harmony and Melody are preggo with twins and are due to give bumprd at the same time.
