All of the people in power - ALL of them - are uniformly corrupt. It becomes tedious. And it turns out to be not just power hungry, gre...more
And WHAT??? Kobi had wings? I just wish he'd been more of a main character. Although the Chosen ones were a diverse cast, I felt their characterization could've been more prominent. Also, Mika and Ellie stay very static. That is fine of course, but they are the main characters and leave you with the slightly dynamic Gorman to focus on. He is entertaining but not very serious. The plot and action are...more

Everyone lives in huge moldy and cramped skyrises but are thankful that they were at least safe from the rabid animals that have taken over the rest of the world. People ate horrible processed food cubes and...more

As most would guess I picked up The Whisper because I had read the first book, The Roar. And let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed The Roar. It was fun, exciting and mysterious. I may have read it a while ago but I can remember that much. So I was very excited when I happened to find the sequel at a book fair.
And with that I must also say this: The Whisper was very disappointing. It wasn't bad; I want to make that clear. But it wasn't nearly as good as the first one. It lacked many...more
Ellie and Mika, telepathic twins, are reunited by the evil Gorman who has overdosed on Everlife-9 pills and is now a 13 year old himself. Ellie and Mika are convinced that beyond the wall is a wonderful land full of animals, green plants and fresh food. They are determined to take control the the thousands of sleeping children who Gorman has made his army.
I was a bit disappointed with the shallow dialogue and lack of characte...more
