    This book pretty much completely overruled everything negative I may have said about Lies The last book seemed like the series was running out of juice and I found it impossible to believe that Grant could sustain the story throughout the 3 books he had planned But alas all is forgiven and Plague was pretty much awesome apart from some of the same old annoying factors that got on my nerves before in Gone and Hunger Books 1 and 2 built up this overall plot about the radiation effects from the power plant and how it all led to the mutations and superpowers blah de blah we also began to find out that the adults had known something about what was happening before the FAYZ incident Cool and interesting Then Lies just died a miserable and boring death Grant's writing was still undeniably good but the story wasn't polished it felt to me that Grant hadn't fully worked out where the story was going after Hunger I was therefore apprehensive about reading Plague But no the story is well and truly back in full swingThe plot was incredible this time around Michael Grant simply did not have the word 'boring' in his dictionary and not to mention extremely gory As in flu that makes you cough up your lungs literally gory and insects that eat you from the inside kind of gory Damn this author does not bother to spare the reader any detailed nastiness I also have to point out that any reluctance I had in picking up this book was or less eradicated by the opening sentence I have ranted and complained in previous reviews about Sam being such an unrealistic self sacrificing character I mean he's fifteen years old he should not be such a do gooder I distinctly remember saying that at fifteen he should be drinking like a fish and raiding the porn sections at local stores so imagine my utter delight when I opened the book and chapter one first line Sam Temple was drunk I had to laugh at the hilarity of itAnd yes it appears to be mostly true Sam has finally got over his self sacrificing hero phase and has now moved on to the tortured emo phase There is only one boy who successfully worked the hero image at fifteen years old Harry Potter and we all know he got blasted in the forehead as baby whereas Sam Temple had no such excuse Now we've moved on to the characters in this book and believe me I have a lot to say I should probably point out how much I hate Astrid She said it herself towards the end something about how everyone must think she's a hypocritical sanctimonious bitch Well yeah and I wonder why? Maybe it's because you spout all this religious scripture about sin and God's will and then spend half this book wondering if you should murder your autistic brother I think we're supposed to feel sorry for her and hey maybe it's just me but it really didn't work in my opinion Oh and the whole sex thing in this book either do it or don't but please stop making it into a huge God issue I don't know what was annoying Sam's constant whining because Astrid won't have sex with him or the fact that she won't have sex with him for fear it will lead her deeper into sin murder's okay but sex is just plain evil She is a teenage girl from a regular high school in a town on the sunny shores of Southern California not a nun from some hut in Uganda Not that there tend to be a large amount of nuns hiding out in huts in Uganda or anything Oh and one last thing about Sam and Astrid chemistry Or lack of Because I'm not getting it AT ALLKnow who else is really bugging me character wise? Lana When did Lana become such an annoying character? She used to be cool now she's barricaded herself in a hotel on a hilltop where she chain smokes and only talks to Patrick her dog This could be forgiven I mean she's had it rough but she's also turned bitchy nasty selfish and the unflattering list goes on and on She now begrudges all those she has to heal jesus she only has to touch them like it's such a huge bloody chore It's not as if she's the only one who's had it hard other people are having their guts eaten by giant bugs Ick stop with the self pity I liked you beforeThough it's not all bad in the character department it must be said Brianna you are now my favourite mutant I always thought you were annoying and I was right you are annoying you nicknamed yourself 'The Breeze' like Spiderman or Cat Woman and that's just sad But I forgive you because you were so awesomely kick ass in this book and you completely showed Caine how it's done You go girl You go BreezeNow here goes the rant Well sort of I've had chance to calm down since I first read the offensiveness But well if you've read my other reviews regarding the earlier books in this series I was majorly pissed because all the strongest characters were male all the leaders were male all the girls needed protecting they were mostly little than the love interests of the novels But I sort of shrugged it off because the series is written by a guy who is probably just trying to cater to the reading desires of teenage boys superheroes villains action scenes and hot girls I can take that especially seeing as there were some strong females to alleviate the blow like Brianna Dekka and Lana; and of course Michael Grant never actually stated that the girls were weak or anything like that And then I read a certain line about half way through this book And then I read it again Oh dear god that did it I was actually liking Caine and Diana for once I found their relationship uite touching and then it had to be said didn't it? I almost choked on nothing when I read it A girl like her could use a strong male protector OMGWTF? It would have even been forgivable to declare she needed a strong protector but the deliberate emphasis on it being male just served to make it a gender issue and well ouch Wow this was just blatantly stating the fact that the women need men to protect them Cringe That is not what I wanted to read at all Then just to make it worse Caine turned into a bully as soon as he was asked to come back to the island I'd never seen Caine as an evil character I saw him as troubled and rather selfish but I was sure there would be enough humanity left to redeem him not feeling so confident about it after he used his powers to force Diana to do what he wanted He even went as far as to point out that even though she'd willingly had sex with him he could easily have forced her if she hadn't That was another reason why it was so wonderful when Brianna swooped in and saved his sorry ass Who's the tough one now buddy?My angry girl rant aside the ending to Plague is my favourite of the series It's the one that has made me most want to locate the next installment asap 2012 noooooo The book finished where a lot had been successfully wrapped up good because I don't want a year of wondering what the hell will happen to the giant bugs but it also opened up an entirely new mystery I think we're finally getting to the exploration of the extent of Little Pete's powers he's the biggest mystery of the FAYZ afterall But the ending was interesting mysterious even ambiguous I cannot wait to read Fear

    For the most part Plague was just as entertaining and action packed as its predecessorsTo be honest though I'm starting to have an issue with the determined length of this seriesYou see I kind of wish this series would only be 5 books instead of like 6 Knowing that there are at least two books to go before any kind of resolution hits is rather exhaustingI loved Gone and thought Hunger was very well done but starting with Lies the series started to take on an almost soap opera element there were so many characters to keep track of and they all seemed to develop sudden inconseuential fights with each other And while I initially loved Sam and Astrid the series' main couple I hate to say that now it's difficult to read their segments because they're always fighting For no reason At the beginning of the book Sam does something really stupid and I mean REALLY stupid like Almost Put the Book Down and Abandoned It stupid and Astrid seems to have developed this nasty crabby personalityI understand why the characters are portrayed this way at least I think I do It's like the author's trying to add drama with character interactions but having characters who don't get along and act incredibly immature is not the way to maintain intrigue At least I don't think it isTo be fair this was a uick book to read mainly because the plot was very absorbing Grant has always done a great job giving readers excitement and lots of action However there really wasn't anything new that happened in Plague That's one of the reasons I'm getting a little bored with this series it just seems like everything's been done already and there really wasn't anything new here Instead Plague just kind of meanders along biding time until the next installmentI still enjoyed Plague and since I'm already hooked on the series I'll definitely be reading the next installments If you haven't read the series I'd still put it on your 'to do' list because the concept what would a society made up of kids 15 and younger look like? is really intriguing but this series is starting to take a repetitive path


  4. Mitchel Broussard Mitchel Broussard says:

    My favorite ongoing series of the past couple of years continues with Plague and proves that the first three books were no fluke This is just as action packed jaw dropping and lightning paced as the first books And a TON bloodierSo it's been eight months since every adult disappeared and the impenetrable dome descended on the sleepy town of Perdido Beach Throughout fires horrid blood baths mutating monsters and freak evolutions in the kids the town has survived The very unstable societal structure built up in the first books continues here but the council is loosing its grip Sam is gone for the majority of this book and Caine is eying the town from his safety nest on the islandSo the major problem in this one is well a plague There are two possible guesses as to what it is a deathly whooping cough that reaches such extremities it cracks your neck; or a series of bugs that hatch in your intestines and numb your pain sensors to eat your way out without you feeling anything They go hand in hand in making Plague the most brutal and unsympathetic of the series which is why it's my favorite These are kids The oldest are 15 They are being ripped in half by giant cockroaches thrown out of windows decapitated disemboweled and eaten Their young age makes the proceedings feel as if you're watching a train wreck you can't look away fromA glorious beautiful exciting train wreck With tons of gore The previous books were well mature in their descriptions of violence but Plague is on a whole different level The previously mentioned bugs eating out of your pores; giant roaches chewing on kids lying helpless in hospital beds; someone being cut into three separate pieces by barbed wire; Drake talking about microwaving a puppy This shit is legit And I loved it for its brutal simple and honest portrayal of these horrorsBut otherwise it's what we expect from this series A tightly wound narrative told at a breakneck pace with chapters counting down to a sure fire epic showdown this time with GIANT COCKROACHES oh yeh We get to know a lot about the giaphage and its origin I can't help but feel like I know exactly what it is and why its doing what its doing but I know Grant has something up his sleeve We also get in some three or four chapters the perspective of Little Pete Astrid's autistic brother The kaleidoscopic and disjointed view he has on the life of the FAYZ is so intriguing I wished we had gotten these from book one He knows and understands WAY than I every thought and I really hope Grant puts these in the next two booksMy only real bash against this series as a whole is the re caps Or lack there of I feel like this series lends itself to a TV show set up amazingly well And in that regard I felt like I needed a little Previously On prologue for each book And even within this novel there are so many characters so many plots that I forgot the death of a major character to the point that when it was brought up by someone else in the story I was shocked and horrified a second time I'm not saying Grant doesn't handle this all well he does like a pro; I just feel like maybe this one in particular does definitely jump around perspectives so than the previous booksThere are now only two left in the series And I read that the last will fully explain the causes of the FAYZ and detail life after it has ended for the kids Sad I don't want this series to end Ever And as always with the scandalous cliffhanger this one ends with waiting another year will be utter torture


  5. Alayne Emmett Alayne Emmett says:

    Yet another brilliant book from Michael Grant in the “Gone” series This book was involved and the characters were getting exciting There are big bugs and lots of weirdness but it’s a fantastic read and I read it very uickly


  6. Rachel Rachel says:

    EhI read the first book of the series and loved it Second a tad less Third I started to hate the characters and find some mistakes in the writing And now I'm just reading it to see how it ends I mean it's a good book it just has a lot of stuff going on Things that bother me1 The amount of characters He just keeps throwing them at you There's so many that when they reappear in the story line I have to text my friend so she can remind me who they are2 In this book Brianna was supposedly using the E string of a cello to defend herself with I play the cello and I know for a fact that a cello does NOT have an E string Only A D G and C How in the world did that get past the editors??? Did any of them have a musical background? I guess not3 Why in the world did he need to give a second name to the Darkness? My friends can't even pronounce that name correctly We'd be just happy if you left it at the Darkness even if it does sound a tad cheesy4 Michael Grant keeps saying how these winds are blowing in the FAYS Please elaborate What do they mean? Where are they coming from?5 I hate how Orc started turning into stone for a mysterious reason You don't even get an explaination for that6 I dislike how he completely dropped the small children7 A bodyguard for Albert? Really?8 The fact that people get drunk at such young ages bother me Some goes for the weed smoking9 What was up with the plague?10 Whas it really necessary for Caine and Diana to have sex?


  7. Emma Hoke Emma Hoke says:

    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 The kids were all very relateable to me with all their strengths and flaws put out there in the wide open They made me laugh and cry they really held the novel up It is a fast read that kept me up all night fast paced and suspenseful Can't wait for Fear in 2012


  8. maha maha says:

    3755I'm just glad that I'm getting closer and closer to finishing this seriesOverall it is interesting enough for me to continue but not so much that I couldn't wait to see the ending due to genuine excitement I rushed through the last 30 pages because I just wanted to finish this and move on to other books I guess this series so far is okay


  9. smoreads smoreads says:

    My how I love the Gone novels If you haven't given these books a try yet they come with my highest most sincere recommendation They are fast paced high intensity but at the same time incredibly thoughtful books However out of all the four novels be warned Plague wins the gross out award for sure Let's just say that the plague is not your average virus and tbh it isn't even the least of the kids' worries The must look away CAN'T LOOK AWAY horror of Plague achieves something both terrifying marvelous


  10. Taylor Taylor says:

    I just finished this book yesterdayit only took me two days to read all 492 pages And believe me when I say this was one of the best uses of paper and ink everWarning there are a TON of spoilersI've been anxious for this book to come out since the minute I finished Lies which at the time was my favorite of the Gone series Sorry Lies but you have been replaced by Plague as my new Gone series faveWith non stop action crazy plot twists confusing relationships freakish bugs and a downright nasty flu Plague did not fail to sate my hunger wowthat was a bad punI thought I'd read somewhere that Gone was going to end up being a saga which would mean only four books So when I finished Plague you can imagine that I sort of freaked out There were WAY too many loose ends left untied not to mention that the FAYZ bubble was still intact Along with Litte Pete becoming some sort of disembodied entity or something like that I was very happy when I disovered that there are going to be two books which is why I thank my mom and her uick Internet searching abilitiesThings in Plague that made me want to screamDrakeBrittany escapingthe really horrible nasty bugs that ate poor Hunter and Roscoethe deadly gut wrenching flu I'm on a roll with my bad puns todayDiana and Caine's relationshipCaine Jrcoming soon run for your livesSam and Astrid's puzzling realtionshippuzzling as in it's falling apart which is sad because I was always rooting for them to be togetherDekka almost dying; she's one of my favorite charactersEdilio almost dyingEdilio's note to uinn Get Caine I had to rub my eyes and make sure I wasn't seeing thingsI had been reading for a long timeAlbert almost dyingThings in Plague that made me want to laugh and dance which is rare because I do NOT danceToto; I mean come on he was hilariousDekka not dying yayEdilio not dying again yayAlbert not dying; as much as I don't like him he's an asset to the FAYZthe disappearance of the bugsthe way the Breeze and Caine worked together to beat the bugsSanjit and Lana's relationshipDrake's journey to see the gaiaphage was really freaky He is a sick twisted evil person and I can't stand him at all Too bad he can't die at the time beingI loved the way Sanjit handled Lana It was funny and cute and now they are my favorite FAYZ couple They complement each other very wellThe small parts of the book that switched over to Little Pete's point of view were very very strange I mean I guess that's what you get from an extremely powerful autistic kid I liked how it ended the book though It leaves it wide open for the next installmentIs Astrid going to kill herself now? It seriously seems like it She did what was right and it's not like Little Pete is dead I think and then again she doesn't know thatI liked how Jack stepped up his game He's actually kind of important nowCaine is a deceiving lying manipulative creep He's almost worse than Drake I felt so bad for Diana even though she's hardly any better I like the way the kids split up and either went with Sam or Caine sorry King Caine That was one of many great ideas throughout the bookThank you Michael Grant for yet another magnificent piece of the confusing puzzle of the FAYZ

    I just finished this book yesterdayit only took me two days to read all 492 pages And believe me when I say this was one of the best uses of paper and ink everWarning there are a TON of spoilersI've been anxious for this book to come out since the minute I finished Lies which at the time was my favorite of the Gone series Sorry Lies but you have been replaced by Plague as my new Gone series faveWith non stop action crazy plot twists confusing relationships freakish bugs and a downright nasty flu Plague did not fail to sate my hunger wowthat was a bad punI thought I'd read somewhere that Gone was going to end up being a saga which would mean only four books So when I finished Plague you can imagine that I sort of freaked out There were WAY too many loose ends left untied not to mention that the FAYZ bubble was still intact Along with Litte Pete becoming some sort of disembodied entity or something like that I was very happy when I disovered that there are going to be two books which is why I thank my mom and her uick Internet searching abilitiesThings in Plague that made me want to screamDrakeBrittany escapingthe really horrible nasty bugs that ate poor Hunter and Roscoethe deadly gut wrenching flu I'm on a roll with my bad puns todayDiana and Caine's relationshipCaine Jrcoming soon run for your livesSam and Astrid's puzzling realtionshippuzzling as in it's falling apart which is sad because I was always rooting for them to be togetherDekka almost dying; she's one of my favorite charactersEdilio almost dyingEdilio's note to uinn Get Caine I had to rub my eyes and make sure I wasn't seeing thingsI had been reading for a long timeAlbert almost dyingThings in Plague that made me want to laugh and dance which is rare because I do NOT danceToto; I mean come on he was hilariousDekka not dying yayEdilio not dying again yayAlbert not dying; as much as I don't like him he's an asset to the FAYZthe disappearance of the bugsthe way the Breeze and Caine worked together to beat the bugsSanjit and Lana's relationshipDrake's journey to see the gaiaphage was really freaky He is a sick twisted evil person and I can't stand him at all Too bad he can't die at the time beingI loved the way Sanjit handled Lana It was funny and cute and now they are my favorite FAYZ couple They complement each other very wellThe small parts of the book that switched over to Little Pete's point of view were very very strange I mean I guess that's what you get from an extremely powerful autistic kid I liked how it ended the book though It leaves it wide open for the next installmentIs Astrid going to kill herself now? It seriously seems like it She did what was right and it's not like Little Pete is dead I think and then again she doesn't know thatI liked how Jack stepped up his game He's actually kind of important nowCaine is a deceiving lying manipulative creep He's almost worse than Drake I felt so bad for Diana even though she's hardly any better I like the way the kids split up and either went with Sam or Caine sorry King Caine That was one of many great ideas throughout the bookThank you Michael Grant for yet another magnificent piece of the confusing puzzle of the FAYZ
