The town and surrounding areas become encased within an impenetrable barrier that burns to the touch, with many of its inhabitants developing supernatural powers

Many Thousands Gone is a remarkable book, one that beautifully integrates two centuries of history over a wide geographical area. It is a benchmark study from which students will learn and with which scholars will grapple for many years to come. Peter Kolchin, Los Angeles Times.

Many Thousands Gone is a remarkable book, one that beautifully integrates two centuries of history over a wide geographical area. Many Thousands Gone is an imaginatively conceived, brilliantly executed academic history of the experience of African-Americans, from their arrival in Jamestown in 1619, through the early decades of the nineteenth century.

Furthermore, it goes without saying that all of the people, living, dead, and otherwise in this story are fictional . First, he was going to take a bath. A real, long, serious soak, in a tub with bubbles. Maybe read the paper, maybe not. Some days he thought one way, some days the other.

Great book and series if a long read doesn't bother you. Gone: Book one of a series - don't think I'll be finishing this one, though. A little too dark, and cheesy. Finished the first book and I highly recommend the whole series going onto the second one tomorrow cannot wait to read these ❤️❤️❤️. This is the Gone series.

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
