Book Review – Bzrk by Michael Grant

The book I read for my book report was ‘BZRK’ by a famous author Michael Grant. In my point of view this is a really good book if one wants to read a futuristic, war story. The plot is set in the near future and is a story about a war for control of the human mind. Main characters of the book were two conjoined twins, Charles and Benjamin Armstrong. Both of them are owners of the Armstrong Fancy Gifts Corporation and have a set goal in their lives. Their goal is to turn the world into their vision of utopia. They want a place where there’s no war, conflict, hunger and NO FREE WILL. Opposing them is a guerrilla group of teens with a code name of ‘BZRK’ which gives the book its title. They also have a mission and they are determined to successfully complete it. They are fighting the twins to protect the right not to be messed up and to remain HUMAN. This looks like an ordinary war but as one reads further they figure out that this is no ordinary war. Weapons are deployed on the nano technology level. The worst part of this war is that the battle ground is the human brain itself. There is no one that could be trusted in this battle and no stalemates: its victory, or madness. The best part of this book is that it unfolds with hurricane force around core themes of conspiracy and mystery. The book plays around with insanity and changes realities all the time. Personnel choices play a huge role in this book. Which side should one choose in these dark hours? And how far is one willing to go to win this battle? These questions go on till the end of the book and I think were still not answered at the end either. I would recommend this book for anyone that loves reading mystery and science fiction novels.
