Final Reflecton

  • What were three things learned from reading this book?

It is scientifically possible that this could happen, being left with not enough oxygen in our atmosphere to sustain us. Sometimes it takes courage to stand u, but know there are gains as well as losses to the actions. Lastly, we are blinded the majority of the time of what we have and pursue what we think we want.

  • What was the best part of the novel?

The best part was when things escalated very quickly at the dome. Quinn exposed the truth to people about how the ministers are controlling everyone with air. They are using peoples basic need. The auxilliaries were outraged and riots began to form.

  • Why did the author choose to write this book? What was the big lesson to be learned?

The big lesson to be learned is that we shouldn't cut down every tree. We ourselves are creating our future without our basic needs, such as "air" being one of them.
