Gone - Michael Grant

Monday, June 9th, 2008

In a flash, your life can change forever.
Something bizarre has happened in the town of San Perdido. In a flash,
everyone over the age of fourteen has disappeared. Poof. Gone. A strange
impenetrable force field encircles the town, and as the stranded kids
struggle to survive on their own, they discover that some of them are
developing new talents-unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers-that grow
stronger by the day. And unfortunately, not all the kids with these
new-found powers are good.

“This intense, marvelously plotted, paced, and characterized story will
immediately garner comparisons to Lord of the Flies, or even the
long-playing world shifts of Stephen King, with just a dash of X-Men for
good measure. A potent mix of action and thoughtfulness-centered around good
and evil, courage and cowardice-renders this a tour-de-force that will leave
readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless. Grant’s novel is
presumably the first in a series, and while many will want to scream when
they find out the end is not the end, they’ll be glad there’s more in
store.” …… review


Now for my review - and MD’s - ——- WONDERFUL! This book is awesome. Neither of us could put it down. I won’t give it away, but I wasn’t disappointed with any of it. Great book.
