really liked it
bookshelves: dystopian, i-think-you-should-read-this
Read in August, 2012

It's the end of the world as we know it, it's the end of the world as we know it, it's the end of the world as we know it........... and I feel fine.

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 feeling very sad this series is over.

About that: Spoilers ahead amigos:

What kind of crack-pot ending was that?!?!?!!? I feel like my book must have had pages torn out or something!!!! After 3 books of this surviving, I really hoped for some closure.... I am glad, however, she didn't end it all sunshine and rainbows. Alex is a character that is very hard for me to understand. Why does he feel the need to follow the rules, especially from Carlos in regards to his sister?!?!?!? Poor Julie. Why did Mrs. Pfeffer feel the need to marry Matt off to Syl???? Why was there so much importance on that freaking baby?!?!?!? (I know, the future, holy cannoli, enough already.) Why do they not just move already?!?!?!? (especially when the house starts flooding????) I get it would be hard to just leave your comfort zone, but geez. At some points, I am very suprised the Evans family have survived for this long.....

See, these books would be so good for school!!! I said it in my first book review and I stand by it. There is many topics to discuss, there would be so many different opinions and ways of surviving.

Gosh. I need to start stock-piling. Maybe these extreme couponers are smarter than we give them credit for........

4 stars. I highly recommend you read these books.
