Book Review:
Another Faust by Daniel and Dina Nayeri [Young Adult]
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Release Date: August 25, 2009
Pre-order it here: Amazon.com

Summary: A devilish debut by a brother-sister team invites us into the world of the elite Marlowe School, where some gifted students are having a hell of a year. One night, in cities all across Europe, five children vanish — only to appear, years later, at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess. Rumor and mystery follow the Faust teenagers to the city’s most prestigious high school, where they soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor’s extraordinary "gifts." But as the students claw their way up — reading minds, erasing scenes, stopping time, stealing power, seducing with artificial beauty — they start to suffer the side-effects of their own addictions. And as they make further deals with the devil, they uncover secrets more shocking than their most unforgivable sins. At once chilling and wickedly satirical, this contemporary re-imagining of the Faustian bargain is a compelling tale of ambition, consequences, and ultimate redemption.
My Review: I really enjoyed this book. It was dark and dangerous, just how I like it. These five "Faust" teenagers were quite intriguing, I connected with all their personalities since the book was beautifully written. However, their were times where it was just a tad bit wordy for me. I also didn't understand why most of the teenagers were blonde, but they all seem brunette on the cover? But, I did love how each teenager had a different "gift" that was given to them by the wicked governess. The concept of the novel pretty much sums up how each person embodies strength and weakness. Some people are more tempted to go to the dark side due to their greed or vanity. The book obviously was inspired by the play 'Doctor Faustus' which is a man who sold his soul to the devil, guess who the "devil" is in this book? Don't worry I haven't spoiled anything, it's evident once you read the book. My favorite part of the book was the ending! The last 100 pages were pure excitement. It brought everything together and it just all made sense. Overall, I liked it, and thought it was very different from the YA books out now.
My Rating: 4.6 out of 5
