Fear by Michael Grant. Review after the summary.
It’s been one year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.
Despite the hunger and the lies, even despite the plague, the kids of Perdido Beach are determined to survive. Creeping into the tenuous new world they’ve built, though, is perhaps the worst incarnation yet of the enemy known as the Darkness: fear.
Within the FAYZ, life breaks down while the Darkness takes over, literally—turning the dome-world of the FAYZ entirely black. In darkness, the worst fears of all emerge, and the cruelest of intentions are carried out. But even in their darkest moments, the inhabitants of the FAYZ maintain a will to survive and a desire to take care of the others in their ravaged band that endures, no matter what the cost.
Fear, Michael Grant’s fifth book in the bestselling dystopian Gone series, will thrill readers … even as it terrifies them.
Summary from Goodreads!
All right, here’s what I thought:
- Everything that was great about the last books in this series still stands.
- There are plenty of great suspenseful scenes, lots of actions, and the characters you love are in this book. The alternating points of views are a good way to provide information from everyone, which is great in case there are particular characters that annoy you/who you don’t want to read too much about.
- Also, this novel moves things along (by about an inch, but still). It makes me happy to finally see something big happen, given that I think that while this series is great, it feels as if it’s been stretched into more books than necessary.
- Aside from feeling like this book took forever to be written in order for one important thing to happen, it was a rather enjoyable read. Though, it’s still as gruesome as the other ones!
