Review--Take One With You by Oak Anderson

Take One With YouTake One With You by Oak Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Imagine a world where you could get back at those who had done you wrong. "An eye for an eye."  In, Take One With You, Oak Anderson takes that ideal to a whole new extreme.

Charlie and Sarah had both suffered great loss.  They had 'met' each other online in chat rooms dedicated to such things.  They met several other people with the same suffering.  One particular person, though, was an inspiration to them.  She was courageous and brave.

Melissa Stevenson was tired and wanted to end her life.  But there was someone else's life that had to end too.  The person who made her life so horrible.  Missy was going to take her life and take him with her.

From this inspiration, Charlie and Sarah created the TOWY website.  People who were suicidal or terminally ill could take their own life and take the life of someone else as well.  What a way to rid this earth of all the scum!

I really enjoyed this book.  It's an original idea that is eerily realistic.  The relationship between Charlie and Sarah is very intense.  One part of this book, that was very different from any other book that I have ever read was the use of different media articles that talk about the effects the website is having on the world.  I didn't like where they were placed in the book, but that was my own issue.

This is a great novel that will get you thinking.  Are there really people out here who are already doing these things.  Murder/suicide is a common practice.  "If you die tomorrow...who would you kill tonight?"
Please read Take One With You!
