I was taken in completely with the story and the characters. I loved it and could not put it down. Derry may be flawed and she definitely makes mistakes, but she does learn from those mistakes. The story flowed really well and is quite marvelous and unique. I just could not put this book down. It has a suspenseful flavor that goes throughout the story and does not let you go. With Norma Hinkens' descriptions I could just see the scenery as she described it. It was so clear to me and that also made the book tremendously enjoyable. This final chapter wraps everything up in an exciting ending to the series. You really know these people as friends and partners in their quest through these books. They've become real throughout this series. This whole series was wonderfully done with exceptional story telling and writing. I thought the writing terrific, the storyline was amazingly clear, and I definitely would recommend this book to not only YA, but everyone. Good reading from beginning to end. This is a marvelous, well-written story, another plus on Norma Hinkens book list.
The UndergroundersThis series of three books was a great weekend read. I found myself staying up late and rushing to get to the ending!
Not on ku, goes with a trilogy of books, listed below. Decent enough post apocalyptic but felt some things missing explanation or lead up and just in general a bit off. The Undergrounders Series Books 1-3: Boxed Set Immurement, Embattlement, JudgementBook One: ImmurementBook Two: EmbattlementBook Three: JudgementGot on mailing list probably when got That Moment When: An Anthology of Young Adult Fiction which she is in. Somehow manage to get all 3 books so basically the trilogy just not in one set.
Epic. Personal. Highly satisfying.It's a rare treat to find a book that's so engaging, you drop everything to read it non-stop. I don't think I've ever done it with three books in a row like I just did with this trilogy.Yes, the story is that good. So is the writing, both spare and descriptive at the same time. The characters are fully formed, their actions and dialogue always in keeping with their personality and motivation. And the twists and turns provide page-turning action that keep your eyes glued to the page.For those who don't normally like YA fiction because you're not that interested in teenage concerns, don't let that deter you. You easily forget the protagonist's age as you're drawn into the intricacies of the story. The dystopian circumstances of a post apocalyptic earth from natural disaster as well as non-natural scientific tyranny don't leave room for teenage angst and parental power games. If your pre-prejudice against YA fiction is that strong, mentally add five years to everyone's age and you'll be good to go.
An amazing dystopian tale that keeps you reading through all the books. Impossible to stop after one, just have to keep going until they are all finished and then ready for more. First time for this author, not the last. Happy to receive the book for free but would have purchased it anyway.
I could not put it down!I was so take be this story that I missed two meals and Jacobs to!d when to go to bed a couple of times. I,m going to r dad more of her stuff to see if she really that good.
