This World We Live In (Last Survivors #3)
Popular Answered Questions
it's comin' to get ya!
so - this series is over, i reckon. and i'm not terribly sad to see it go. she had a golden shiny opportunity here, and she kinda blew it. you can't feel bad for her, it's like a celebrity sex scandal; the destruction was purely self-destruction.
this is why it could have been awesome:
the premise of this series is fantastic; it presents an opportunity for real scientific discussions of what the moon (if you believe in the moon) controls,and speculations on what would happen ...more
FROM THIS POINT ON, IT IS BASICALLY ONE LONG SPOILER. YOU WERE WARNED.
Now, we all know I wanted to murder Alex in the last book for not breaking down walls and stealing *&^% from other apartments. I believe other reviewers have mentioned the ...more
The whole book was put in Miranda's point of view and I was somewhat disappointed about that. Out of the other Last Survivor books I liked Alex's point of view better than Miranda's.
As for the relationship bet ...more
If nothing else, Pfeffer's stories get you thinking. They force you to consider what you would do if you were in her characters' shoes - would you have stockpiled food up in case of an emergency? Or would you basically be at the merc ...more
Proof that even interesting, deep sounding scifi can be turned into fluff. No, not fluff. I generally enjoy fluff, even though I rarely find it satisfying.
This is more like trash.
NOTHING happened, except A LOT of whining, random acts of 'passion' (Alex: I hate you. Miranda: I hate you too. ), and breaking into houses, which is why this book gets two stars intead of one. Because let's face it. Deep down in each of us, there's a part that madly wants to ...more
Mais la perfection est overrated. Je pense que je n'oublierai pas cette trilogie de sitôt.
I have issues with this last installment of the trilogy. I like both these kids, so I was glad they were back for more, and together this time. While Miranda continues to act like a typical 17-year old, whiny one moment, mature the next, Alex seemed like a different person. He either developed a ...more
Susan Beth Pfeffer stays true to Miranda's character. At times I wanted to shake her, but her honesty, her desi ...more
I thought this book had the potential to be AMAZING .Unfortunately, I'm so disappointed.
I thought this book would give me all the answers but it just created more problems :( None of the characters were likeable at all and I'm going to start my rant so you better not keep reading unless you want very big SPOILERS(view spoiler)[
1) I hated Matt in this book :( And I hated that I hated Matt. He went off and married a girl he knew for a week (Syl). I really liked Syl but Matt turned int...more
For me, this was not quite as riveting as the f ...more

It’s May 27, just nine days after May 18. If you’ve read my diary (Life As We Knew It), you know what that means. Exactly one year and nine days ago, life as I had known it was gone forever. On that fateful evening, an asteroid sucker-punched the moon with such force that it must have doubly and triply smashed in the already-smashed-in craters. The moon is now closer to me on this earth, and I honestly don’t know how bad off the craters are, but this I know — this one cataclysmic event wre ...more
Nothing hopeful happens in this book; it's all about death, destruction, hunger, suffering, depression and the daunting reality of what could happen if a single event (so out of our control) occurs and suddenly changes life as we know it. I ...more
Well, I have to admit I liked this one much better than The Dead and the Gone. I know I am in the minority with this, but I feel like this one got some of the magic back. I picked this book up and you couldn't have gotten it out my hands today.... even to go to the beach (ask my hubs). Seriously, this one hooked me in. I am also in the minority with ...more
This was really a major disappointment. Miranda has b ...more
My criticisms of book 1 arise again in this book. Most of this story could be summarized with "We're hungry and bored. Will we have enough food to survive?" Although realistic consi ...more
Всеки път, когато някой си помисли, че няма какво още да се обърка, всичко отива тотално по дяволите.
Няма да преразказвам анотацията. Няма и да спойлвам. Освен, че наум ми идват поне двайсет вида псувни (нямах представа, че знам толкова много).
Ако края на втората книга създаваше усещането за надежди, за по-добри времена, третата ги разби на пух и прах. Не знам какво да очаквам във финалната, но ако авторката не предложи някакъв щастлив и ...more
"Yes, He has," Dad said.
Well, that was a conversation stopper.
Well, Miranda, I couldn't agree more!
Now, where do I start about how a very nice series went so horribly, horribly wrong... It could have been a great book. It could have been one of my favourites. If it were not for that stupid jerk called Alex (and a couple of other things). Why on Earth did Ms Pfeffer had to invent him? Why couldn't she let him, please please, die somewhere along the way? Preferab ...more
Прочетох я за два дни и това е може би най-добрия възможен финал на една от най-силните трилогии, които съм чела. Разтърсваща... Както си говорихме със сестра ми - една от малкото книги, които като спреш за малко да четеш си направо поразен от наличието на ток и липсата на пепел.
I did like that Susan Beth Pfeffer returned to the diary format for this book, although I kept thinking, "No one records this much actual conversation in their diary!" I also liked the sneaky way she caught us up o ...more
While I really lik ...more
