Nicole's Book Diaries (nicolesbookdiaries) | 2308 comments In the blink of an eye, everyone disappears. Gone. Except for the young.

There are teens, but not one single adult. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened.

Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your 15th birthday, you disappear just like everyone else...

Feel free to join this BR!

I don't like Diana's voice in the audio. Sounds like it should be soft, not hoarse.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47376 comments Mod
A Gone tv show would be incredible, I think there's one in the making. But it's really similar to Under the Dome, so hopefully it won't be called 'copying'.


Nicole's Book Diaries (nicolesbookdiaries) | 2308 comments You're reading so fast >.<

I love Drake's voice the narrator puts on. Really fits!"


Yeah this part made my skin crawl. Imagine not having a doctor for that...

XD yeah I'm listening to the audio for the challenge. Audios generally don't take me more than 2 days lately. I need to be quick. But I haven't finished even one physical yet this month.

I'm impressed with the mental health depictions of this book. I don't see it often but yeah there's both bulemia and autism into this book.

That's the point of a series XD They can't answer all the questions in Book 1, otherwise there's nothing to keep readers reading XD

Can't wait for Hunger, I've only read that one once before but can't remember.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47376 comments Mod
So I'll have to properly listen to those ones. I think listening at the speed I'm listening is a problem, as I don't retain all the details, but it's all fine lol
