    5. 4.5 sThis was fun 1984 type science fiction with romance, intrigue and betrayal.This is about the War on Music, but if you substitute Drugs for Music , you ll get the picture Only State composed Muzak is allowed by The State Even children s music boxes are banned At least with drugs, we are allowed to use strong ones under supervision Merrin Pierce s father, Tarquin, is the powerful Minister of Broadcast Standards, and Merrin herself is a member of The Patrol, the police force whose job it is to [...]

    9. Music was a gateway drug, easy to start, but doomed to send its listeners on a journey of rebellion.In the dystopian version of Los Angeles, classical music was the one and only type of music allowed for everyone The State wanted to make sure the music wouldn t arouse too much passion for a person so there were people keeping an eye on suspicious music listeners everywhere Merrin Melody Pierce was an undercover agent on the outside but deep down she was a music lover or should I say, she was tra [...]

Thanks SO much to Mr Morris for sending me a copy of Melophobia in exchange for an honest review It is an absolute honor to dive into your work Melophobia was an intriguing and original read Set in a dystopian America, this book brings to attention the absolute spell binding effect music has on the human soul and what happens when that beauty is ripped out of life completely There is a song for every one of life s occasions There is music you listen to when you re happy, sad or angry Imagine if [...]


    14. The day the Muzak died, lol A world where music is illegal Terrifying This book is like what would happen if the Church of Christ ruled the country world No music, no dancing, no drinking, no fun It s not clear if the music ban is worldwide or just the states Either way I shudder to thinkThat said, the identity of the source was not a surprise to me at all, but then it wasn t like a pivotal reveal so it didn t bother me so much that i saw it coming a mile away I also really like the end, view sp [...]


    15. Finished reading December 1st 2015 She could see how easily someone could succumb to the hex music weaved over them, the temptation to lose oneself within the hypnotic trance like beats No thoughts of the future, or the past, only the immediate present, as if life itself had condensed into a single moment A copy of this book was kindly provided to me in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoiler I couldn t imagine myself living in a world without music and I always enjoy a good dystopi [...]

    17. Ever hear someone say, Turn that racket off Whatever happened to good music, where you could understand what was being sung Probably a parent, older adult, or a person with better taste in music Now, imagine that someone put an end to music, period No Elvis with his suggestive hips, no Beatles, heck, even the Wiggles would be banned Imagine a life with only Muzak, kind of like being trapped in a mirrored elevator for life That s the world Merrin grew up in, the purveyors of music are her enemy [...]


    18. 3.5 D I received this e book from the author in exchange of my honest review What I really liked about Melophobia is the way James turn everything around D Because music is the way we protest and express our feelings, and James made that look like something wrong and sinful And the incredible part was that I could see the reason behind that and at moments it made sense PThe main character Merrin was difficult for me Sometimes I liked her because she was so badass and smart, fighting against she [...]


    19. Loved this book because music Say, how do you feel about elevator music Or the i m left on hold on the phone here is some tunes to make your ears bleed kind of music Assuming that majority of population always gets irritated by these waiting tunes , can you picture a world where this was the only music available The only kind of music allowed Imagine, if all your life you were told that all the other genres of music were forbidden because they are the root of all evil and equal rebellion against [...]

    22. This is one of the most fascinating alternative histories I ve read, spawned by the idea of the government declaring war on moral decay And at its center are the arts music, paintings, television or movies anything that incites rebellion or causes you to feel something than apathy And feel, you will.Morris explores this world through the eyes of a young patrol officer The daughter of one of the government s high ranking officials, she works undercover, exposing the ranks of those who create or [...]


    23. Melaphobia by James Morris was the second book that I nominated on Kindle Scout that was selected for publication Because I had nominated it, I received a free copy of the book when it was published I should have read and reviewed this sooner, but I ve been busy with the work for my graduate degree.I noticed a review of this book here on from someone who didn t understand why the authorities in Melophobia condemned music I was very young during the sixties, but I was there So I learned then that [...]


    24. James Morris does it again with another exciting page turner, which by the way, I can totally picture as a movie This alternate reality book is set in present time where music is banned, all music except musak of the elevator variety It was an interesting and unique perspective to read about I loved the family interactions, the betrayals, the treachery, and the unexpected romance This book had a little bit of everything, all in a setting I am very familiar with.I received this book for free from [...]

    27. People say they want the truth, but really, they don t It s simpler, easier, less painful ro live without it What it is like to live in a world without music A world where music is forbidden, hated, and feared Unimaginable Unthinkable There is no doubt the world will go insane And James Morris proved it here in his excellent novel, Melophobia The title itself reveals too much Melophobia fear or hatred of music At first, all I wonder is, is it possible To fear or hate music Then it all came down [...]
