Creation by Kat Mellon

Read in: June, 2013
Format: eBook
Source: Author
Star Rating: ★★★
The author sent me a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. In no way has this changed my opinion on the novel or the following review. 

Wow! This is a major and tough look at an alternative society that blows your mind. Two residents of a center who's sole purpose is to benefit a society minds are suddenly blown wide open.

Creation. Left brain thinkers are sent off to a brainwashed society run home where their writings, paintings, thoughts are all taken away and sent off to benefit society. 

Way too short! The ending was a little took good to be sure, but I would love to read the sequel. Do the residents guards come after the two escapees? How can they hide their creativity that hasn't run out? 

Short, sweet, and to the point. Creation had notes of Ayn Rands' Anthem and Lois Lowrys' The Giver, with its own special twist. The idea of housing all of the "creative" people together under one house and using their creations to better the rest of society did have a Utopian feeling but was a little eery. 

A solid three stars. A short read that filled up a rainy evening was just the ticket! Great dystopian read but isn't too memorable.
