Why was this book controversial? Which themes or ideas were challenging to society?
Well I would like to start with the fact that they use the word "We" instead of "I". For example "We were born with a curse" (Part One). Which they HAVE to, its not because they want to, because if they don't there will be consequences such as death. So they have been taught to use "We, Us, Them, They, etc". Which can show the idea of individuality (Even though in the book they make it look as if it were bad). I think throughout the book there will be more cases in which controversial things will happen, but for now I feel like the use of "We" is the most controversial of the first 4 parts (And the most strict law).
