Book Review: Melophobia by James Morris



Title: Melophobia
Author: James Morris
Published Date: September 22nd 2015
Goodreads Synopsis:

Melophobia: fear or hatred of music.

The time—now; the place—America, but in a world where the government controls all forms of art and creativity. Any music sowing the seeds of anarchy is banned—destroyed if found—its creators and listeners harshly punished.

Merrin Pierce works as an undercover Patrol officer assigned to apprehend a fugitive musician who threatens the safe fabric of society, only to confront everything she thought to be true – her values, upbringing, job, and future.

Can love survive in a world without music?



Melophobia is a dystopian novel somehow similar to The Delirium Series. Wherein the Delirium series treats “love” as an infection while Melophobia treats music as a “drug” or something that will corrupt individuals that is why they’re banning it.

Melophobia follows the story of Merrin, an undercover officer who is trying to reveal and take down some of the “criminals” responsible of making and distributing music by infiltrating the underground music but she would have to make a decision that would affect her family, love and friends.

This book is full of twists and turns you would not be expecting, it is well written and will give you a roller coaster ride of emotions. It certainly will get you hooked from the start up to the end.

I am so excited to read the sequel if there will be any! (Please let there be a sequel!!!!!)

Rating: A well deserve 4 out of 5 stars and if you’re looking for an underrated dystopian book to read this book is the one for you!
