My copy won't be here for another 3 days at least. If we get more snow, it will be more

I just finished. Here's my review I posted. No spoilers! Sorry! (NOTE:I think i'll wait at least 2 more weeks until we start actually talking about it. Or maybe I'll make a Gone Discussion once other people read it. Anyway...)

I should be in bed. I have school in the morning, but I can't sleep. Olympics are on for one thing, but I just finished Gone. After six months of waiting, it was finally delivered, and I finished. I was so worried. After reading reviews I was really starting to worry about what it'd be like. I love the first 2 and had SUPER high expectations for this one. And it might, maybe, just be my favorite one. The first two were so similar because they were stil in school, and it was the same kind of fighting between Janie and Cabel, doing police work etc etc. Going into this one, it just seemed different right off the bat. The Captain is probably only really mentioned a few times, because it focuses more on Janie's family. From the reviews I was worried that there wouldn't be much Cabel (or JaniexCabel, if you get my drift >:)) but there still was, thank GOD. I was on the verge of tears at times. The book I think is probably the saddest of them all. There were a few things I kind of predicted going into it or even before it, but there were times that it seemed like she was going to do one thing, and then decided to do the complete opposite (which is most cases was VERY relieving)

I loved this book. Lisa McMann, you have done it again.
Now I've got to go cry, because my beloved Janie and Cabel are Gone (no pun intended) forever. ):

ok I was going to wait until someone else got on, but obviously that has not happened, so i am going to write this now


It was late at night. my judgment was a little bit off. After re-reading several times, I don't know that this is my favorite. One thing i didn't like was that Lisa McMann used slang terms that aren't really slang, like they came from nowhere

lurve?



really? i mean, come on. that was just one of the ones i can think of.

but seriously? i can't be the only one on here who read gone

Laila (laila95) | 4 comments First of all, hi everyone. Anyways, I have to start be saying that I really like the way these books are writen. I give Lisa McMann credit. I think that she has a completely different and fresh aproach to writing supernateral books. I would have to say that my favorite book was probably wake. I like it because it was when Jannie was finding herself and excepting her problem or talent...however you think of it. Gone was good, but in a different way. It had a completely different concept, so I don't like to compare them. Fade was okay, but it wasn't the best one, although I will say that it was one of those books that made me cry...so ya

Yeah. I'm a pretty hardcore fan (i've gotten 4 of my friends so far to read them haha) and I love her writing style. Random incomplete sentances and all. ON her website she has said it's just the way it came out from her brain. I think that's awesome. Wake and Fade were so similar, like picking up right away from the last, but gone was just...i don't know. It was just different. Good, but different

Laila (laila95) | 4 comments I Totally agree with you on everything.

Heather B (heatherbenson) umm... I don't know, I think that they are good as is. It worked with Edward because he could hear everyones thought so it makes it really different and interesting.
