Well I guess the idea of the book was a good one, but the actual reasult? Umm... Not so much. It wasn't a horrible book that I closed after the first page or anything, but it will never be one of my favorites. The main problem had with the books were the characters. I mean I really, Really, REALLY, disliked the main character and had no real fondness over any other character either. I only had some little, tiny, flickering feeling for Jason, MAYBE a little more for Elijh. The rest of them were simply so boring--almost too realistic. Like they had too many flaws and not much else to make up for them. And the part the girls played in al this made me want to scream, I mean realy!? They were next to useless. The characters, like I said, were the main problem, but not the only one. The book just seemed to keep getting more and more depressing, and to me depressed people are pretty boring. I mean, I kinda get that that was the point of the book, but couldn't there have been just one moment of happiness? One little hapter to make us smile? Just a little one would've been nice... Any way the last problem I had with it were the way the man character thinks. It had a negative affect on me and I felt very depressed to think thats all I have t look forward to in life.
Well, the one good thing I fould about the book was the ending. I thought it was just perfect for that kind of book. I mean an epiloge would have been nice, but I sorta get why there wasn't one. The book kind of gave hints how it ended up in the begining, and I guess the things that could've been said were better left better left unsaid.
Maybe the reason I disliked this book was because it wasn't the right book for me. Maybe I just don't like this kind of book. (Though if you're into the whole trapped without adults thing, I HIGHLY recomend the gone series. WAY more interesting and entertaining. I mean who doesn't love kids with super powers, mutating animals, and evil smokey cloud and to top it off NO adults!!)
