Jobs, Mo'Steel, 2Face, and a handful of others are the last of the human race. They are all that remain of what we knew as the planet Earth. And they've traveled millions of miles and five hundred years to find a place to begin again.
But the ship that now sustains them nearly destroys the survivors. Its computer feeds them images that are incredibly beautiful, intensely

I can't shelve this as "non-white main character" because it's an ensemble, but I am so pleased that 2Face finally gets a cover, and that she's unambiguously Asian. So, accordingly, I'm going to go back and retroactively create a "POC on cover" shelf now!

We're nearing the point in Remnants where I can't really remember what happens; a couple things rang bells in this book, but it's getting fainter and fainter. I think #5 or #6 may be the last books I read, so I can soon no longer refer to these
Jobs, Mo'Steel, Yago ja kourallinen muita yhä elossa olevia selviytyjiä ovat kaikki mitä ihmislajista on jäljellä. Uuden maailman, jättiläismäisen avaruusaluksen, vihamieliset alkuasukkaat eivät anna selviytyjille aikaa sopeutumiseen. He suhtautuvat ihmiseen kuin virukseen. ”Äiti”, avaruusaluksen keskustietokone, on sekaisin ja hämmentynyt. ”Äidin” keinotekoinen muisti luo kiehtovan kauniita mielikuvia selviytyjien mieliin – ja tappavan vaarallisia ympäristöjä. Jobs ja kumppanit ovat jääneet ...more

Finished it last night, review and rating to come as soon as I can figure out how to be remotely eloquent about it :)

July 13, 2016:
Cover is comparatively accurate once again… though based on 2Face’s stance, I expected something more…supernatural to occur with her? After all, they were all soaking in space radiation for 500 years… and we’ve already seen some of how Billy, Tamara, and Edward have “changed”… Though her stance does fit the empowerment she portrays more and more as this

While the plot is great, the number of non-story issues are growing. As I said in my last reviews of the books in this series, these books are darned short. They very very much feel like chapters, not whole books. Related to that: It's getting annoying how much recapping the author has to do, when it feels like we just read about it in the last chapter.

Unfortunately there's an even bigger issue: I'm afraid poor Mrs. Applegate's editor might have died. The first book was near-perfect in

This series gets more and more intriguing! I've been a fan of Applegate's for a long time, and I just love the worlds she creates. I can't wait to read more :) Onward to the next one to find out what else happens to the last surviving remnants of the human race!
Rating: 4.5/5

I friggin love these books.

I do. I'm finding that the more of them I read, the more invested in the story I get. And there are another ten of them, so I get a lot of it. Applegrant has an amazing, almost unequaled ability to create characters that I can connect to. Like 2Face. 2Face is one of my very favorite characters in all of fiction. And Yago. He's purposely a dick, but he's a dick in the same way that Caine from Gone is; a well-rendered, interesting, human dick. It's been a

On the creepy Mother ship, the humans have destroyed what threatened them before and now face a different kind of threat. As the previously divided groups find each other again (which is not to say they're getting along), they struggle to survive in an ocean environment that is what the place was before the humans got there with their artwork influencing everything. The Riders and the Meanies are still a threat, and Yago is still obsessed with being the group's leader. But physical battles ...more

Well this was another interesting chapter in the Remnants series. The survivors are exploring the ship that they have found themselves on. They encounter a nightmare world full of horrors that only a sick mind could create. They befriend one of the Blue Meanies and get more of an understanding of what is happening in the battle between these aliens and the Riders who are trying to kill the survivors.

I am sad that this is the last book in the series that I currently have. I am going to go on a

I'm actually still enjoying this series. It surprises me a bit, but I'm learning to deal with the weird artificial environments and the weird names and just go with the flow. The in-fighting and the fractioning of the group is very interesting to see. Plus, the Blue Meanies and the Riders are starting to make a bit more sense. (And I like naval battles.) We'll see what the next book holds....

Nowhere Land is definitely not my favorite of the series. It was way more corny and childish than the other books.
The strangeness is multiplied and the characters' growth is magnified in this book. I have no idea where this is going. What is going on?! Who are these people? What's happening to everyone.
It's like "Lost" with kids.

the girl which is inside cyber

Some time after i listened to the
audiobook i draw a picture with a flower which is over the city. To get another view for the book! Argh...only a few different.... things and the book would become so great....

The idea behind these books really got my attention because it is life after the end of the world, however after the Animorphs series and Everworld this was quite a letdown. Besides that, the whole end of the world thing is becoming a real redundant theme lately.

Its been years since i have read this book, probably when i was like 12 years old. But i do know that this book was amazing. My sister has the whole series(had the whole series) Great reading material for anyone who is really in to si-fi.

I like the character of 2Face even though she's pretty dang evil. And the feeling of alien-ness about everything that's going on and how human everyone still acts toward each other (I mean that in both good and bad ways).

I feel like this installment didn't have quite as much of interest packed into it-more just "action-fighting for your life" sequences. Although, I'm very glad to have Billy Weir with us again, and the intro at the end makes me think the next book'll be very interesting!
