As you may know, this was my book club’s first read. You can see all of our reviews for Gone here. Without further discussion, here is my review!
Overall, I thought this book was a modern day, less terrifying Lord of the Flies.I’m not saying the book is not intense it just isn’t to the level of The Lord of the Flies.
I thought the writing style was very good in this book. Michael Grant has an amazing way of being intensity and feeling onto paper. Grant also made the book feel like you were living in the world he is portraying.
The plot was very intriguing! I loved how Grant’s story always captured my attention!
The only thing that I really disliked were the characters. I found a majority of them to be irritating or dull.
Overall, I give this book 3.5/5 stars and I recommend to people who like more plot driven novels!
