Aving a midlife crisis so I find this kind of plot not revolting but definitely worth my reading timeI will definitely borrow the next 4 books and READ THEM IN BETWEEN THE LITERARY them in between the literary Maybe that would be my strategy to finish the 1001 books before I dieThank you Ace Jose I hope you stop growing so you keep on buying and reading YA books and then pass them on to me I hope that despite our huge age difference we will be friends forever I put this book aside about two weeks ago saying I would definitely go back and finish it as I only had about 100 pages left But it doesn t look like it now I m simply not in THE MOOD TO PICK IT UP mood to pick it up And as I m not planning on spending money on the next instalments of the series I will probably never read them anyway so why continue hereI really don t know why Gone wasn t able to intrigue me It is a clever and absolutely thought provoking story that definitely got me thinking How would I react if people suddenly started to disappear What would I do to help keep things working Would I freak out Would I become as cold blooded as some of those barely 14 year old kids It s hard to imagine I would definitely start feeling claustrophobic But it also made me wonder Can those kids be for real I mean I have of course never been in a similar situation but it s hard to believe it can transform you into a heartless killer in a matter of days Even if you ve always been a bully Killing and torturing people is still on a completely different levelThat being said I think one thing that I didn t like was the constant action in this book I know this is how the book is supposed to be like and I totally knew what I was getting myself into and ven looked forward to it But somehow in this novel it just didn t work for me Don t ask me why You just never get one peaceful moment One awful thing happens after the next We get Caine the dictator and his little crazy friend I ve forgotten his name already Duh who want to rule the FAYZ and don t care at all who lives or dies as long as they stay in power But hey that s not Mistress by Contract enough No throw in some weird talking animals and that creature in the cave And I know things will probably only get worse in future instalments I m certainly not a faint at heart when it comes to books don t make me watch a horror movie though but this was simplyxhausting And it had the opposite ffect on me than it should have had It made me not careThe language and dialogue were kept simple but I thought that fitted the story in some way I liked Sam s voice and his personality Same goes for Astrid although their love story felt a bit strange to me and developed so fast But then again under their circumstances verything s a bit different All in all this book just wasn t for me But it might be for you so don t refrain from giving it a try I can totally see people loving this series This was a very good book about adventure mutants superheroes and just the plain old story of surviving high school only this Time There Are No Adults To Keep A Check On there are no adults to keep a check on novel tells the story of how one day in a small Californian town The New Jim Crow (The Macat Library) everyone 15 and over mysteriously disappears But that s not all The town becomes surrounded by a strange spherical barrier no one gets in or out And stranger still the children and teenagers left behind are discovering that some of them have weird mutant powers And that snakes can fly And coyotes can talk In a world gone mad power and leadership are up for the picking In a world run by children power belongs to the bullies the sadists or the mutants So I m going toxplain the reason it got four instead of five stars Well I ve spent the last fe.

This is my first xposure to Michael Grant s writing and he totally blew me away Maybe "It Was Because I Am "was because I am to the sci me away Maybe it was because I am partial to the sci genre but truthfully I don t think it had anything to do with it This story was just WOW Imagine sitting in class one day maybe you are paying attention to your teacher maybe you are daydreaming about surfing then all of a sudden your teacher disappears What would you doIt just so happens that this very scenario happens to Sam Temple in his history class It turns out his teacher isn t the only on missing it turns out that anyone over the age of thirteen is missing Not just missing but disappeared No cell phones no television no I tried and tried to love this book but I just couldn t connect with it The concept was a brilliant one It was the reason I decided to buy the book in the first place but once I started reading it I couldn t stablish a connection with any of the charactersI just felt as if I was an outsider and not able to grasp any of the Pemikiran Kalam Dalam Islam emotions of the characters I didn t feel as if I was part of the story At times I thought there was too much telling as opposed to showing There were also many passive sentences that didn t have theffect an active sentence would have had I really wanted to grasp the story but it just didn t happen It was just an okay read 1 Gone 2 Hunger 3 Lies 5 Even though Michael Grant may be an asshole I m still impressed by his books Can t wait to keep reading and fina My loveee I hereby predict that sometime in the next year or so the next big Young Adult obsession will be with the book Gone by Michael Grant and with the subseuent books that I hope he writes uickly because I might die if I don t know the what and the why and the how and thewell EVERYTHING This is apparently the first in a series of six books I also predict that it will take off like the Harry Potter and the Twilight Series with almost as many adults reading the series as kidsFor one thing t Highly What in the World Should I Wear? enjoyable Hooks you at the very start I drive through the trafficveryday about an hour in the morning and definitely than an hour at nighttime So while reading the first few pages of the book I said wow this should happen here in Manila Imagine all adults to disappear altogether without a trace at one time and all adolescents will follow once they turn fifteen Obviously this is okay as long as I and my loved ones are De natura florum (Ilustrados) (Spanish Edition) exempted heheThis is a YA book and so the characters are all young adults Sam has a friend uinn and a love interest Astrid Together they find the possible reason for the disappearance of the people and they meet all interesting characters and go through a lot of twists and turns just like theveryday Manila traffic to get into the bottom of this phenomenon including its possible solutionThe storytelling is straightforward and Grant s imagination is so fertile I thought I would write a letter to our President Noynoy and recommend him to solve the congestion of vehicles during rush and Corbenic even not too rush hours Why not If a YA author like Grant can think of all the interesting characters and situations in the book maybe his creativity can be put to better use not only for readers but for the whole country orven the whole world World peace anyoneMy only complaint about this book is attributable to myself Why oh why did a 48 year old man like me find this njoyable if not better read than Kazuo Ishiguro s surreal The Unconsoled I really don t know It is readable gripping made my heart beat faster and it does not make me don t know It is readable gripping made my heart beat faster and it does not make me very time I am holding it Oh maybe I don t read too many YA books so having it once in a while feels liberating Or maybe I am The first in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant's breathtaking dystopian sci fi saga Gone is a page turning thriller that invokes the classic The Lord of the Flies along with the horror of Stephen KingIn the blink of an Novel Experience (Sara Miles, eyeveryone disappears Gone Except for the young There are teens but not one single adult Just as suddenly there are no phones no internet no television No. ,

W weeks reading books that are instantly gripping they throw you right into the middle of the story and build up their characters around it this book however takes time at the beginning to introduce and Yvonne, Book One, Before You exploreach character in a way that I feel would have been much The Purpose Guided Universe effective if it had been integrated throughout the novel But it s not just that I have some issues with the female charactersAs a woman and a feminist I love strong females in books But the strongest female in this book was probably Diana the psychopath andven she was most notably only the girlfriend of the opposition The girls in this book are all beautiful or cute and are important only as ornaments on the arm of the leaders all of which are male there never seemed to be any discussion in this book as to whether the chosen leader would be female Also I grew increasingly annoyed by the way Sam was built up as Astrid s saviour and hero I had higher hopes for Astrid at first she was described as a genius and I thought she could be a great contribution to solving their predicament but she was actually fairly useless often needing to be rescued herself My favourite female of the book is Lana She survived alone in the desert without Space Pioneers ever needing a guy s help unless you count her lovable dog Patrick and she braved a truck crash coyote attacks and I hope there s strength and admirable ualities coming from her character in the second installment Which by the way I amxtremely looking forward to because the story is VERY good ven if my rant seemed to suggest otherwise I suppose I should provide some kind of xplanation as to why I didn t finish reading this bookIt s not because the concept was stupid actually the concept was uite interesting and would make for a fantastic philosophical discussionIt s not because it was poorly written actually it was written uite well with a great plot and interesting world building and action packed scenesIt s not because the characters were horrible or annoying Actually Sam is really likable if not frustrating Astrid is such a relief as a female protagonist and the secondary characters are realistic and well fleshed outIn the nd I would actually recommend this book to people specially fans of sci fi and Particularly Middle School Children It middle school children It like a modern sci fi version of Lord of the Flies only cooler and there s no PiggyNo the reason I couldn t keep reading it was because I wasn t The Silk Painting Workshop: Painting, Marbling and Batik for Beginners enjoying it The reason I wasn tnjoying it was rather stupid but since veryone over the age of 15 is gone I was kind of frustrated because there was only one girl and boy actually taking care of a small number of babies The rest were just being abandoned in their carshouses or whatever and I couldn t get absorbed in the storytelling while I was mentally yelling at the kids to go rescue the babiesStupid I know Pathetic Yeah I m WELL aware of but that the I know Pathetic Yeah I m WELL aware of it but that just the way it isAlso because I m kind of an authoritarianleader type person I was thinking of verything they SHOULD be doing and how they SHOULD be organizing and kind of frustrated that Sam was being so wimpy about taking charge But he s fourteen I know he deserves slack but yeahSO go read it please My inability to finish this book had nothing to do with the writing and was all about me being irrational and crazy I read this book out of curiosity with no preconceived notions Merely because I was curious what kids would do in a world with no adults I admit I was blown away Mr Grant told me a story that I couldn t put down From the beginning my mind was full of uestions about how this happened how the kids would survive what could prevent the same thing from happenin.
