Gone | Michael Grant
The first in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant's breathtaking dystopian sci-fi saga, Gone is a page-turning thriller that invokes the classic The Lord of the Flies along with the horror of Stephen King.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 talentsunimaginable, dangerous, deadly powersthat 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 birthday, you disappear just like everyone else. . . .Michael Grant's Gone has been praised for its compelling storytelling, multidimensional characters, and multiple points of view.

“You‘re not others”
“No?”
“No”
“Why?”
“Because I love you”
Astrid was silent for so long, Sam thought he had upset her. Yet she never loosened her hold on him, never pulled away but kept her face buried in his neck. He could feel her warm tears on his skin. And at last she said
“I love you too”

I really liked this book. It is obviously geared towards a younger audience, in both content and language, but I enjoyed it anyway.

How did you find this book: I was on the Chapters website trying to find an interesting book and I just so happen to come across Gone by Micheal Grant. It seemed really interesting because of the wording on the back of the book so I went to chapters and bought this book along with the other two books that go along with the set.

Nat.bdmjh9B This book definitely looks interesting, especially the cover with what appears to be a soldier which does spark my interests in the book. 2y
Natalia_Mc @Natalie_L your book seems really interesting too given the fact that it has an intriguing title and the set up of the image looks really...well put together (edited) 2y

The gone series can be debated. The first 6 books all have real people on the covers. Book 7 & 8 are a “sequel series” but the publisher released all the original books in this new cover style. The gone series is much more popular now then it was when it had the original covers.

I totally enjoyed reading this book. It was sometimes really hard to believe in my opinion but I am curious to learn more about all this mysterious things in the next books.

The characters were easy to love (or to hate). My problem was that sometimes I could not imagine people so young reacting like that, but hard to say how you would react in such a situation.

I recommend this if you love post-apocalyptic YA! I will read the rest of the series.

Great concept: Suddenly, everyone 15 and over in Perdido Beach is gone and there‘s some sort of barrier around the town. But the execution isn‘t great. It drags in the middle, mixes in too many fantastical elements which don‘t necessarily make sense together, is overly violent at the end, and just made me want to put it down.

I actually stopped reading this book, and I only picked it back up because I was waiting on a shipment of books. It‘s an interesting concept, but it was missing action until the end.

BookishGirl06 @UnidragonFrag seeing how everyone disappears at 15, I figured as much. 3y
UnidragonFrag Well, yeah, but you know sometimes it reads like for older kids or even like young adult-ish? This one isn't like that, I mean. Pretty cut and paste and at times it spells things out as if the reader couldn't? That's what I mean. 3y
BookishGirl06 @UnidragonFrag sorry. I just meant that I thought the author was trying to make it relatable for teens by making their characters teens. Sorry if I was rude 3y
UnidragonFrag Oh no, you weren't rude. I was just clarifying as I thought maybe I wasn't making sense. I get you. I just felt it was a little more dumbed down from that with some of the characters/ situations. 3y

This book was just a bit much for me. I liked the premise and I the characters. It just went way out there on the wackiness with the talking coyotes and the “Darkness.”

Mandigolightly It just...never held up, as a concept. Plus the dead baby they found really turned me off to the whole concept 3y
bels_books @Mandigolightly there was just so MUCH. One or two things they had going on was sufficient for a good book. It was just confusing. 3y

I recommend this to everyone who says they don‘t enjoy reading because I really think this can hook even the people who say they don‘t enjoy reading.

This was a first in the series deal on audible. It is a scary twist of Lord of the Flies and Stephen Kings Under the Dome. The narration leaves something to be desired he really does not capture kids voices very well.

I tried to read this book when it first came out but it was long and slow. It went in the DNF pile. But the kids I worked with ate it up. Monster (book 7 or 8) just came out and makes me want to try it again. As for the covers, I don't remember when it changed, around book 4 or 5 maybe? but I like the new style better. #coverlove #changesedition

GUYS! IF YOU HAVEN‘T READ GONE DO IT RIGHT NOW. In the book, everyone above the age of 15 disappears. Fun right? Well now the kids have to obtain social order and soon bullies rule over what they call the FAYZ. While they‘re trying to keep peace, animals and even children and experiencing mutations and getting weird powers. THIS BOOK IS THE BEST AND I️ COULDN‘T PUT IT DOWN!!

Exciting when not bogged down by excessive details about random mundane things. The audiobook was not pleasurable. The guy couldn't do girl voices well at all and the "he said" "she said" in between his voices was enormously annoying. Part of the reason it took me so long to finish this! Whenever I get to the next book, definitely not audio!

It is a so-so just because the first half of it was kinda slow BUT I am eager to know what happens next! 👀 The next 2 books are on their way through Thrift Books!

So... what happens is that everyone 15 & up suddenly disappear from this small town. These kids are trapped, new rules are established, gangs are formed and it becomes really scary when a few of them start showing powers!

This book kind of reminded me of Lord Of The Flies! 4/5⭐️

#bookishpetpeeves #marchintoreading I hate getting to the middle of a book and finding pages missing or defaced. When I bought this used book I missed the problem. Fortunately I hadn't started it when I discovered the missing fragment. But now the dilemma: what to do with it ? If I donate it someone else gets the missing text peeve 😞

Elisa Oh no! Yikes, that has happened to me a couple of times with second-hand books. And when it's a suspenseful read it's worse 😶 Maybe a local library has a copy to lend out? (edited) 5y

#ReadJanuary #Day11 #DNF I started reading this when I was a new mom and I really struggled with the idea of everyone over the age of 16 disappearing. I couldn't handle thinking about something like that happening to my son (I know the book is fiction, but when you're a new mom reason tends to go out the window). I plan to pick it up again eventually, but for now it waits.

Absolutely loving this series. 📚I have read book 1 before but never continued with the series so this time I'm starting again with the intention of continuing. All adults above 15 years old disappear and the children are left cut off from the outside world 🌍 by a wall. This is a story of survival with twists, strange happenings and unexplained events throughout.

#onewordtitles #photoadaynov16 of these, I've only read Erased, And It. Gone, Hunger, and Plague are my daughter's. I promised her I'd buy her the whole set if she helped me clean the garage. She helped. I have yet to buy the books for her 😂 I'm too busy buying my own! Erased was written by one of my good friends, and is self published.
