"Gone" by Michael Grant


Gone by Michael Grant has lots of conflict and mystery in it which made for an interesting read; however, the ending was a huge let down.  I felt like I lots of questions were left unanswered and nothing was really resolved in the end.  Just to give you a taste of how far out this book is, some normal kids had super powers but not all, two brothers (one evil and one good) were against each other throughout the book, coyotes talked, there was a hot wall all around a 10-mile radius of a power plant, and nothing made any sense.  One day out of the blue all 15-yr.-olds and older just went poof and disappeared.  I liked Albert, the kid who took over McDonalds and cooked.  It certainly had some funny parts and lots of action, it just didn’t make any sense.  It even had a cat that could teleport itself!  I must say though, that it kept my interest and found it hard to put down.

  1. From the teaser yesterday and the book description, I had to get this book for my Kindle Fire. I look forward to reading it.

    By the way, the cat with the book is adorable. Reminds me a bit of my Romeo. :)

  2. We enjoyed Gone and the other 3 books (Hunger, Lies, Plague)in the series - we're hanging out for Fear to arrive any day now.
    Here's my link for Gone from a couple of years ago....
