This book has also connected to Uglies because both play with the idea of a Utopia. In Uglies you are an ugly until you are given surgery at 16 and you become pretty, This in theory gets rid of the problem of people judging each other upon appearance. In Anthem people are given jobs and have a low level of technology. This means that people are given jobs ensure that everyone has the “correct” job for them and the low level of technology is maintained because it is believed to be beneficial to humans and create a “perfect world”. As you can see both books have showcased that they are attempting to create utopias connecting these two book in that way. Also both books seem to have main characters who a have trouble following the rules of the Utopia. In Uglies the main character escapes the Utopia. In Anthem our main character often has thoughts that contradicted the Utopias rules. As you can see both are have or are having trouble conforming to the utopia rules and I predict that Equality 7-2521(our main character) will run away from the Utopia as the main character in Uglies did. What do you think?
