So it's been three months since the events of Gone, and the kids are slowly starving to death, subsisting on cans of gravy and packets of seasoning.

This book is much darker than the first book, and everyone has been reduced to a crazy whiner due to his/her hunger. There are a lot of side stories going on, with little resolution. There are also lots of new characters, which was also kind of annoying when they were two-dimensional.

I enjoy the human aspects of the story--dealing with loss, with hunger, etc.--but the super power element still leaves me wanting more. It's hard to buy in to, and for so many of the characters, they are only defined by their power and I couldn't tell you anything else about them. I find this to be especially true of the female characters.

(Also...there is a disproportionate number of characters with "D" names. Drake, Diana, Dekka, Dahra, Duck, Darkness... What is up with that?)
