The Chrysalids

About the Book

Can’t tolerate differences? You will be perfectly at home in The Chrysalids, where not only are differences forbidden, but those who do not conform to the guidelines are killed, especially those with telepathic powers. Set thousands of years in the future, in a place called Labrador, this superbly written novel sets the standard for dystopian novels by asking the question, “Does society have the right to impose standards on those who live within them? The Chrysalids is eerily familiar when compared to the world of religious fundamentalism that we find ourselves in today, and what price we must pay to remain true to ourselves, and yet, remain citizens of our world.
