If you're into the show then you'll love the book.
it's been some time since I finished this but never came round to actually providing a decent review.
right now, the time is 03.08 in the morning. So, it's hardly an appropriate time.
I will have to come back to this.
However, I have to say: this really is definitely superior to Wet Work (actually, Wet Work was rather bad. This is decent).
Some things get tiring: the short sentences not always add to the tension. If you keep using them, paragraph after paragraph, they start tiring the reader. Every...more
Even though this was written in 2008, it seems to take place perhaps in Season 4 or so of The 4400 television series. It's basically a very formulaic episode in which Maia has a vision of her mom on the top of an erupting Mt. Rainier. It's well-written, but the story itself is only of mediocre interest. I did, however, enjoy revisiting places in Seattle that I've been to like Pike Place Market and the Science Fiction Museum. It's nice to read a book every now and then where you know the faces an...more
I enjoyed the story. It was very true to the series. I actually did like how he took a little time to describe any relevant backstory for those who may not have watched the show, or perhaps just forgot a few details. My only disappointment was the numerous typos in the book.
I would guess if you know the TV show than you'd pick this book up, however it is very detailed with descriptions and information you should already know if you followed the series, not that impressive.
Captivating book detailing special talents given to 4400 people, abducted from earth by a 'future' generation then returned to earth 40 years later.

Could never seem to get around to watching the television series
1st book after 2 series finale books. Read third.

I loved the story but it was so badly written
Quite good for a TV series book.

Recommends it for: fans of the show
This is set in the third season. It doesn't reveal anything too substantial, but it's a decent addition to the 4400 verse. Too much exposition in the writing in my opinion, but I am an avid fan of the show. I would hope that they make some books that take place after the show's last episode to continue the main story arc that was cut off by cancellation.
