Publisher's Summary

In the blink of an eye, everyone 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 way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened. Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents - unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers - that grow stronger by the day. It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: on your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else.

Michael Grant's Gone has been praised for its compelling storytelling, multidimensional characters, and multiple points of view.

    "Story is okay... narration is horrible"

    I almost turned the book off because of the narrator. I cringed every time he read the word "said".

    "Please rerelease this book w new narration"
    Any additional comments?

    Everytime the narrator said the word, "said" I cringed. It took away from the story which in of itself is great. Terrible narration.

    Story
    "Narrator too absolute on when character "said""
    Where does Gone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    7 Read series but was hoping for better narrator because the story is so good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone?

    mindset of children


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kyle McCarley?

    Therese Plummer


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    FAYZ


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "Good story. HORRIBLE performance."

    This is a good, if immature, story. But the narration is UNBEARABLE! Everytime Mr. McCarley said; "Said". I cringed.

    Story
    "Lord of the Flies redone again"

    it would seem there's no such thing as new ideas, however this is a beautiful rendition of yet another version of The Lord of the Flies we're going to dash it was a little Harry Potter and a little bit of The Hunger Games which when you come to think about it is again just different versions of Lord of the Flies
