Troublesome Authors – Trifextra Challenge

An intriguing Trifextra challenge this weekend. “…….. this isn’t so much a writing challenge; it’s more of a reading challenge.  We want you to scour through your favorite pieces of literature and give us the best 33 words you can find.”

My 33 words are taken from ‘Wool’ by Hugh Howey – a great book. The book’s description on Amazon sums it up nicely – “The Silo is one huge air tight world, an organism that functions only as long as every part functions properly, as long as there is a back up ready to take its place or to fix a problem. Disease cannot be allowed to fester and ideas are a disease. This is a world of do your job, live your life and don’t question the world at large. This is how the end of the world looks and it’s a scary sight.”

These are the thoughts of Juliette, one of the main characters:

“And the books with the faded colour pages? The fanciful imagination of authors, a class done away with for all the trouble they inspired. But Juliette didn’t see fanciful imagination in those books.”
