Melophobia: fear or hatred of music.
The time—now; the place—America, but in a world where the government controls all forms of art and creativity. Any music sowing the seeds of anarchy is banned—destroyed if found—its creators and listeners harshly punished.
Merrin Pierce works as an undercover Patrol officer assigned to apprehend a fugitive musician who threatens the safe fabric of society, only to confront everything she thought to be true – her values, upbringing, job, and future.
Can love survive in a world without music?
Publisher’s Weekly called it “a convincing alternative history novel and…an accomplished coming-of-age love story that asks big questions about freedom and expressiveness in the face of oppression.”
** I received this e-book from the author in exchange of my honest review **
What I really liked about Melophobia is the way James turn everything around 😀 . Because music is the way we protest and express our feelings, and James made that look like something wrong and sinful. And the incredible part was that I could see the reason behind that and at moments it made sense. 😛
The main character Merrin was difficult for me. Sometimes I liked her because she was so badass and smart, fighting against she thought it was wrong, but other times she was really childish and naive, the thing I didn’t like the most was that she called her dad “Daddy” and I imagined her saying that like a little girl and it just made me uncomfortable. However, I liked her more than disliked her, because I could feel her as a real person with her ups and downs. 🙂
Now the Source was so freaking amazing! 😀 I love him/her (I can’t tell because of spoilers) with all my heart. ❤ The Source is my new boyfriend/girlfriend, I love him/her so much because of his/her passion and love with the music.😍 Also, he/she was soo sweet and adorable with everybody. 🙂 For me there wasn’t anything wrong with him/her and that shows how much I liked him/her! 😀
The bad thing was that I always imagine how a book could end and in this book I was able to predict the things pretty well. The only case I liked that was when Merrin met for the first time with the Source and joking I said “She/he is the Source”, I was right and it was funny because I just said it without thinking it. 😛
However, I liked this book a lot, all the mystery and the adrenaline in some scenes were really awesome. Oh! And the romance that is in this book, is really sweet and unique. ❤
