Grammardog Teacher's Guide contains 16 quizzes for this dystopic tale. All sentences are from the novel. Quizzes use short sentences characteristic of the futuristic genre. Figurative language contrasts nature with the sterile world of dystopia (blue as morning, puddle of light, the trees have swallowed the ruins). Allusions reflect the conflict between government and technology and mythology and archetypal symbols that stir the emotions.
