“Enthralling, thought-provoking, and unsettling…” _VOYA
“This fast-paced adventure… will leave readers musing over humanity’s future” _Booklist
In past everybody lives wealthy, healthy, and everything in the universe was absolutely perfect like a pure white blanket. Until, a largest earthquake in mankind occurred which took over everything from us. Family, friends, houses, and wealth is not with us anymore.
Only things left around me was gooey puddle, black ashes, brownish wizened ripped papers, and rusted metals with devastated houses. Now, I work for a gang ruled by Billy Bizmo. In order to survive, I have to steal gleaming, and expensive things to Billy by stealing from others. Therefore, stealing is my job.
However, one day I met an old gummy called ryter. Ryter told me about future. He told me future will be ours if individual of us think, and imagine. The word ‘future’ he told me that day still wonder around my brain.
Individual’s idea/story has power to change the world. “Everybody has a story, he insists. There are things about your life that are specific to you. Secret things you know.” (Philbrick, 19) At that point of the story Ryter asked Spaz about his story. Ryter asked him story not because, he wanted to wrote piece of adventure novel but, he trusts value of story, idea, or imagination. In contrast, Spaz didn’t believe the power of story. However, though help of his friends of adventure he learns the power of individual or theirs’s story and he also learns individual can change the world.
Reading can change our future. “You’re my only hope!”. “The pages doesn’t matter, he says . You’re the book now! You’re the last book in the universe! Make it a good one.” (219) After a long wild adventure Ryter and Spaz finally success at curing Bean’s (Spaz’s sister) disease. However, when they came back to latch (district) the gang’s executed Ryter due to, gang’s rule but, before he told spaz you’re the last book in the universe. Ryter believe that, individual’s person’s idea can change the world and future. And by experience, Spaz also adopt Ryter’s idea about individual’s idea. Book is the corporation of author’s ideology, characteristic, idea, and almost everything about author. Therefore, Ryter believe reading book can change the world. Now, he is dead and Spaz has his idea of changing the world. Therefore, Spaz is the last book in the universe.
This book gave me a hope that, even a small young, feeble could change the world. Everybody can change the world! However, before changing the world, we must read books. Books has a power of changing the world. Therefore, we must read book in order to change the world.
