This is the story of an terrible event that affects the earth told from the viewpoint of a self involved teen. As an adult it was hard to relate to the whiny main character, but the book was very well narrated and was paced well and an interesting story.
The story was about what I expected to be based on the cover. Probably better for younger set as the main characters impetuousness would irritate me more than fictional person should.
Delivery of the story is told from a perky point of view which was weird. The Prose is only as good as a 16 year old's journal entry could be.
Good story; interesting take on a possible apocalypse scenario! The narrator drove me a bit nuts. She's young and peppy-sounding, which... I suppose fits once I realized this is actually considered a teen novel, but... I enjoyed it nonetheless. :)
SO.......... I did not know this was for kids 11-13! lol... I just heard it was good... it's probably good for 11-13 year olds. It was lame and anticlimactic. It was a "it's the Apocalypse, but that's okay" type book.
MORE DEATH AND SUFFERING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (but it's for kids...)
Standard teenage girl vocal fluctuation. like, seriously. ;)
I'm curious about what happens in the series... but I really don't care that much. If you're a pre teen girl, its a good sci fi book.
Don't expect too much if you're an apocalypse-junkie!
I HAVE READ QUITE A FEW "END OF THE WORLD" TYPE BOOK... THEY ALL SEEM THE SAME BUT THIS ONE HAS A UNIQUE FEEL ABOUT IT! AND IT MAKES YOU THINK... HOW WOULD YOU SURVIOR
YES!! I DID IT IN 3 SITTING (AT WORK LOL)
LISTEN TO THIS ONE GUYS ITS WORTH IT!! CANT WAIT TO START BOOK 2
I got this book to listen along with my 13 year old niece who is reading the book. And end of the world style book does not need the authors political views boldly shown to tell the story . The jabs at Fox News, George Bush and Christians felt like a petulant child had written them during a temper tantrum .
I finished the book and I enjoyed it. It was sort of pleasant to only have tow or three jarring moments in what could have been tragic. On the other hand, it was a bit idealistic.Wish they had someone else reading it, her voice was a bit much.
I am going to buy the other two books in the series.
Voice a little too 16ish for me.
It has two and I will buy them.
