One of the reasons why I believe this is where the book takes place is because the author, Eric Walters, lives (and taught) in Mississauga; in addition to the fact that the book refers to Folkway Drive, which intersects with Erin Mills Parkway.(less)
Yes, this is totally going to be one of those reviews that is 60% gifs, 30% incoherent screaming and caps locks, 5% me demanding you go out and buy it, 3% analogies made of pure nonsense and 2% coherent review. Now that you have been warned, let's get this party going!!!

What I liked about this one is that unlike so many post-apocalyptic/dystopian novels out there that take place 100 years or more in the future, this one takes place in present day. It made the disaster and the subsequent consequences much more relatable for me. I could actually see something like this happening toda ...more

Quickie Review- This was not a good book. 2.5 stars is generous, actually. I tried so hard to get into this book. Really. I saw it at the library and went, OMG THAT'S A SICK COVER. And the blub on goodreads was pretty cool. HOWEVER, there were numerous flaws with this book. First of all, the plot never got interesting until page 350. NO action, just a whole bunch of planning and talking. In no way was this a g ...more

So it's time to start another dystopian series. I found the cover really catching and it is quite similar to Monument 14 also their texture is the same ( because they have the same publisher, at the paperbacks at least).
After reading they synopsis, reading other reviews and reading a lot of dystopia or post-apocalyptic novel, I find this book boring. Also, there is a similar tv show: Revolution, even though I haven't watched it.
So it started when Adam and Todd is writing an essay then the whole ...more

Quickly they all started to undress until the five men were standing there, naked. They were being held at bay by an old guy and a kid, neither of whom was wearing a shirt. It was a pretty ridiculous scene, lika a game of strip poker that was going horribly wrong.”
