Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
Octavian is a young boy that has been raised by a group of philosophers. He has to learn about science, math, language, and many other things like music. The rest of the people living there are given numbers as their names have certain meanings for each number. He is not sure why he and his mother have actual names. Outside life is a mystery to Octavian because he can not leave this place. There is even a door within his house that he is forbidden to enter. However, he enters it anyway and discovers that the philosophers have been experimenting with a bad nature and he has a bad role with them.

I liked this book even though it was really different. The language is written in somewhat of an older English. It makes it interesting when you are reading conversations between people, so it is pretty cool. The beginning chapters really introduces the story to you and gives the reader enough background to support the plot. One of my favorite things were the maps and graphs that were randomly placed throughout the book. I was pleased to see that there were several newspaper articles and letters in this story. They brought a new look on the events that were taking place. Overall, the ending pulled the whole story together and finished it off with what it deserved. I recommend this book to anyone interesting in reading something different because it was really unique.
