Book Review #5 - Gone (Gone #1) by Michael Grant

299 Hours 54 Minutes

Suddenly it's a world without adults and normal has crashed and burned. When life as you know it ends at 15, everything changes.

A small town in southern California: In the blink of an eye everyone over the age of 15 disappears and no one knows why.

Cut off from the outside world, those that are left are trapped, and there's no help on the way. Chaos rules the streets. Gangs begin to form. Sides are chosen - strong or weak. Cruel or humane.

A new world order is rising and, even scarier, some survivors have power - mutant power that no one has ever seen before.....

My Rating: 3/5

I started reading this book over a month ago and put it down about 100 pages in and forgot about it. The beginning is slow and there are about 10 or so main characters that it got a little confusing. Then when I picked it up again a few days ago it seemed the author had thrown the plot away and started a new one. Yet when all the characters stories started intertwining I couldn't put the book down. I will definitely read the second book in this 6 book series titled 'Hunger', I'm just not sure when.
