TITLE: THE TEEN LIFE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
AUTHOR: MOHAMMED BASSIM
GENRE: NON FICTION
RATINGS: 4.4/5 ⭐
The title is moreover enough to understand the content of the book- it’s all about how life goes for a teen, the problems he faces and gives out some good advices for both parents and teens to get rid of those problems.
Being a teen myself, I could relate with every single line in this book- how we get frustrated for small things, wasting time with gadgets, the agony against educational system where our creativity is just useless (I felt it in my school days), being judged based on grades, confusions and what not!
The author don’t just list out the problems faced by the teenagers, but he also says out the actual hints to change them/ get rid of them, especially the idea to make teens read newspapers so willingly. Isn’t that so- introducing books, arts or sports make teens get away from mobile phones for some solid hours? I almost forget the existence of my phone once I start reading.
I adored the writing style of the ‘Foreword’ and I can’t help myself from reading it once again. I should say that the topics or chapter titles are attractive. The quotes used at the beginning of each chapter suited so well and yes, non-fiction books seem to lack something without it. The writing style is simple to understanding, that beginners could surely give it a try. And it is a very short read and could be read in one sitting.
Recommended for all teens and parents trying to understand them.
