In Orpheus Chanson's world geniuses and prodigies are no longer born or honed through hard work Instead procedures to induce Acuired Savant Abilities ASAs are now purchased by the privileged And Orpheus's father holds the copyright to the ASA pr You can find this review on One Way Or An AuthorWhat if you were born into a world where it was illegal to do the thing that you love the most That’s exactly what happens to Zimri in Gifted a stand alone told through alternating first person POV’s set in the near future We follow Zimri and Orpheus’s adventure in the music industry and see them battle the blatant social stratification in their society as well as discover who really deserves the music that is so preciously guarded by the leaders of the showbiz industryWhen we first get introduced to the world the author gives us parallels with the technological based insects who have cameras that roam the land to the actual living insects that buzz their way in the sky It took a while for me to get in with the new lingo and futuristic version of the world but once that was established and the pace started picking up I was fully engrossed in the story We get to read between alternating POV’s of Zimri and Orpheus They both were uniue characters that went against what their place in society set for them and defied the ways of the norm to defend what they thought was rightZimri was awesome She’s called a plebe and her and other people work in a huge warehouse that manufactures products to be distributed around the area It’s some serious factory line stuff over there Despite her limitations she continues to make the music that she so dearly loves Zimri is wholly passionate unyielding and fierce The music can’t be contained within her and you can really tell how much she needed to let it out“The girl has it bad Music is inside her and Nonda always knew it would eventually find a way out”I mean I know I couldn’t survive without being able to make music Where creating these sounds had a potential for being arrested But that’s the world Zimri lives in On the other hand we have Orpheus who was born and raised under a sheltered life – an industry baby if you will He’s grown up with all the rich kids who become famous and get an implant in their brain to make them “gifted” After all it’s his father who is developing the device in the first place But in the book you get him wanting a sense of Or at least he certainly doesn’t want something implanted in his brain that’ll change who he isWith that in mind a series of circumstances and accidents lead Zimri and Orpheus together Orpheus’s eyes get opened to how the plebes live and work while Zimri is stunned by Orpheus’s charisma and charming attitude They both begin learning things from each other and Orpheus sees an opportunity with Zimri’s spontaneous personality and passion for music He wants to produce her album because he knows that she could be successful in the industry But that isn’t exactly how these corporations work“‘The truth is’ I declare aloud to the peepers and crickets who’ve begun to sing their evening song ‘if she’d been born in the City into a different family or at a different time she would never stay a Plebe She’s the kind of person who would rise above the system like my mother did when that was still possible’”And so Zimri and Orpheus find themselves fighting against the system Gifted is a novel that sends us with a message of never giving up on what you think is right and taking action on it Zimri and Orpheus stimulate a reaction in the media that creates a positive hopeful outcome for the possibilities of the future rather than the restrictive social dominance that we came into the book reading Because in the end who really decides whether you’re gifted or not Sometimes it boils down to being in the right place in the right time and sometimes it’s the tenacity and will to keep going that get people to where they are in the world“‘Making music makes me happier than anything else in life’ I say my dreams clouding up my voice ‘You can’t touch it or live inside of it Music can’t protect you from the wind or rain It’s not like we can eat it or drink it But if I suddenly had no music in my life I think that I might die’”There is also a slight romance that develops between the two characters at a very sedate and comfortable pace I as a reader enjoyed it because you can definitely tell that the characters were drawn to each other and their abilities It wasn’t forceful at all and was uite cute nor did it overcome the main plotline in the story Orpheus and Zimri both had such brilliant personalities that they leaped off the pages And bonus points for their names too We should all know the legend of Orpheus and Zimri means “my praise” or “my music” in Hebrew Both names are so lovely and fittingMy only complaint was how abrupt the ending was – it left me a little discombobulated for a second because everything was happening at once The resolution was satisfying though so in general it left a really great message in my heart If you’re looking for a book that’ll transport you to a time where music is hoarded by the wealthy then you’ve landed in the right spot There are creative technological devices that make it a fun sci fi and a hopeful message that’ll get you thinking no matter what kind of reader you are And finally music lovers can’t miss out on this one After all we know what it’s like to pursue a passion that many people would think we’re “wasting” time on 52416This one was so enjoyable Nothing like a class rivalry in a sci fi setting to raise my excitement The characters were awesome and tenacious and the fact that it revolved around music my life was wonderful
