Plague (Gone) by Michael Grant



Plague, Michael Grant's fourth book in the bestselling Gone series, will satisfy dystopian fans of all ages. Plague, out of all the four Gone novels, was definitely the most graphic and harsh, but very realistic. The thing I like about Michael Grant is that he doesn't gloss over stuff, but dives right into it- the characters, the plot, the drama, was all perfectly detailed and well- written. I like how the author goes between different kids in all his books, because it lets the readers get a good feel of what everyone is going through

Ships from and sold by the book place. Only 16 left in stock (more on the way). Grant was constantly surprising me with the creative twists he threw into the book. From talking coyotes to flying snakes, to the whacked out powers the kids developed-I never knew what to expect and was constantly delighted with some fresh horror. That being said, I feel like I should have enjoyed reading this book more than I did. Not that I didn't enjoy it at all-I did-but it just wasn't the kind of all consuming page turner that it seems like it should have been. I kept reading a few pages at night before bed and then falling asleep.

Plague (Gone by Michael Grant. HE STOOD POISED on the edge of a sheet of glass. He’d never been part of the partying crowd. But this night he’d gone to check on the caged monster that was both Brittney and Drake and had heard Drake’s vile, obscene threats and howling, murderous rage. And then, far worse, he’d heard Brittney’s pleas for death. Sam, I know you’re listening, she’d said through the barricaded door.

Until PLAGUE rolled along, that is. Michael Grant has captivated me from the root with his Gone series. It with the very first book and since then have risen on every single new release that gets ou. e doesn’t neglect to move once more. Another grisly story, another moral in sociology. What occurs when you’re already starving, avid, fading, and without your parents when everyone becomes senseless. So many people are dying. Who do you turn to then? Where do you go?So very much happened in this script. Grant never fails to fill every chapter and every page with more and more data.

For Katherine, Jake, and Julia. Chapter One - 72 HOURS, 7 MINUTES. Praise for the Gone Series. Other Gone books by Michael Grant.

It's been eight months since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

They've survived hunger. They've survived lies. But the stakes keep rising, and the dystopian horror keeps building. Yet despite the simmering unrest left behind by so many battles, power struggles, and angry divides, there is a momentary calm in Perdido Beach.

But enemies in the FAYZ don't just fade away, and in the quiet, deadly things are stirring, mutating, and finding their way free. The Darkness has found its way into the mind of its Nemesis at last and is controlling it through a haze of delirium and confusion. A highly contagious, fatal illness spreads at an alarming rate. Sinister, predatory insects terrorize Perdido Beach. And Sam, Astrid, Diana, and Caine are plagued by a growing doubt that they'll escape—or even survive—life in the FAYZ. With so much turmoil surrounding them, what desperate choices will they make when it comes to saving themselves and those they love?

Plague, Michael Grant's fourth book in the bestselling Gone series, will satisfy dystopian fans of all ages.

This is one of the most imaginative dystopian-type books I've come across in a long time! In a small town called Perdido Beach, whose only real claim to fame is the nuclear power plant it is home to, everyone is going about their day when suddenly all the adults vanish. At first, you wonder if they were raptured or something. But then things start to get a bit strange--some of the kids develop powers, dangerous rivalries emerge, and there is a hint of some Darker Power at force here.

It reminded me a bit of Alexandra Bracken's Darkest Minds books, except without the oppressive grownups.

Grant was constantly surprising me with the creative twists he threw into the book. From talking coyotes to flying snakes, to the whacked out powers the kids developed--I never knew what to expect and was constantly delighted with some fresh horror.

That being said, I feel like I should have enjoyed reading this book more than I did. Not that I didn't enjoy it at all--I did--but it just wasn't the kind of all consuming page turner that it seems like it should have been. I kept reading a few pages at night before bed and then falling asleep. That shouldn't happen with this type of book--normally with a fast paced dystopian, I can't put it down til I reach the end.

I think the problem here is in the character development. None of these characters really felt very fully formed. They each have approximately one key trait: Sam is a leader; Astrid is a genius; Drake is an evil sadist; Little Pete is autistic; Quinn is insecure; Alberto is an entrepreneur, etc. etc. etc. The interpersonal drama just felt kind of forced and half baked. And for me, it doesn't matter how creative a world is or how tense the plot--if I can't really relate to the characters, I'm never going to be fully sucked in.

Still gotta give this points for creativity - it's really not like any other book I've come across lately. 3.5 stars.

This series was technically YA. Being 68 doesn't stop me from reading the good YA stuff despite it's penchant for romance. I thought that Gone was an excellent book. As the next book was released, I expected the "mid-series" weakness. Instead, I found that I liked the book even better. And so on through book 5, Fear which is even more adult and more breath-taking than it's predecessors.

In principle, I hate that authors can't seem to tell a story in 250 pages anymore and that everything is a trilogy or more. Fear has made me change my mind, now I'm living in Fear that the next book will be the final one and I wqon't be able to find anything as good to read.

I'm listing what I consider a few of my favorite books to give you a frame of reference for what I love. The tension, the pacing, the mind boggling imagination. If you liked these, you'll love this series. Let me add that the Gone series should be read in its correct order.

Altered Carbon: A Takeshi Kovacs Novel (Takeshi Kovacs Novels)
The Hunger Games
Uglies (The Uglies)
The Blade Itself (The First Law: Book One)

So, really 5 stars for every book and for this incredible series. I see the author has a new series starting BZRK and I'll be buying it with confidence.

This book will completely blow your mind. I was lucky enough to stumble across this series last summer and it was beautiful. The character development, the plot -- oh man, it's great. It reminded me of lord of flies + superpowers and the concept is so interesting! The characters are beautiful and the story has so many twists and turns. It's a book you won't be able to put down until it's over, and then you'll be hungering for the next book in the series. You'll never leave the FAYZ -- it's one of those stories that sticks with you forever. It honestly changed my life and I am so happy I picked it up one day. The characters are not defined as 'good' and 'evil,' but rather in shades of grey and they are relatable as ever. You have your bullies, your good guys, your charismatic psychopaths - and then just plain evil. The redemption stories are phenomenal and the whole story is extremely well written. Just read it!
PS - order hardcover. The cover is way cuter (and the people!)

The story was fast-paced and exciting. Characters were well thought out and real, though a little predictable. The only thing that bothered me was that frequently the story would change scenes with no page break or any visual clue that the story had changed scenes - that definitely interrupted the flow of my reading as I had to pause to figure it out. Good clean story and will definitely be purchasing the rest of the series!

At the sentence level, each sentence is fun to read. Ditto the paragraphs. Then Grant weaves all the paragraphs together to make engrossing themes, people, plots and counter-plots. Brilliantly done. I kept on and kept on and kept on. That's rarely true for free kindle books.

I was sad that the author resolved almost none of the major struggles and conflicts. I guess that's required since he intended to suck us into a sequel and then into its sequel, etc. In a way that's wonderful because I get to look forward to many more hours of reading about these people and this universe. Still, I would have liked it if we had not just left every evil person or power completely unchanged and ready to go on victimizing good people. That is possible. Take Orson Scott Card, for example. Each book actually "ends" in the sense that good wins and evil is vanquished.

So. If you relish the idea of finding a *really* good author and having *lots* of reading ahead of you, and you don't mind knowing that nobody is going to win until (I hope) around the seventh book, then this is a great place for you to go. Imho. --Eben Visher
