This Is Not a Test | [Courtney Summer]

This Is Not a Test

It's the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won't stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn't sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and she's failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she's forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live.

    Story
    "Too YA for me"

    This book was a little too young adult for me. The book really played on the tensions and interactions of the teen group during the zombie apocalypse rather than the actual apocalypse itself. As a result I didn’t really connect or like the characters, although the author does do a good job of making you feel sorry for/know where, Sloan, the main character is coming from. It was an interesting but didn’t have the normal action you would see in a normal zombie book.

    The Performance was good, not great.

    Story
    "I am so depressed now."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I kept waiting for Sloane to have some sort of life altering moment of clarity and get off of her suicide mission. If I would have known she'd never snap out of it, I would have stopped listening earlier.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    For God's sake, a little bit of joy! Even though she and Rhys connected, she still couldn't find a little happiness. In my opinion, the most effective stories are those that have more balance. A little light amongst the dark. If there were a few of those moments in the story, I think it would have been much more powerful and enjoyable.


    What aspect of Stephanie Cannon’s performance would you have changed?

    She did a good job for the most part.


    Did This Is Not a Test inspire you to do anything?

    No. It left me numb and depressed. Not good.
