    And so the Gone series has come to an end I m obviously not going to post any spoilers for the ending and I see no real point in reviewing just this book because you re probably going to base your decision of whether or not to read Light on your experience with the previous books So I thought I d do something of a series review here, for those who haven t picked up this series and are maybe considering it Or those who haven t heard of the Gone series before and find themselves randomly on And so the Gone series has come to an end I m obviously not going to post any spoilers for the ending and I see no real point in reviewing just this book because you re probably going to base your decision of whether or not to read Light on your experience with the previous books So I thought I d do something of a series review here, for those who haven t picked up this series and are maybe considering it Or those who haven t heard of the Gone series before and find themselves randomly on this page with clueless curiosity Welcome Have a seat and make yourself comfortable Because I m going to tell you why you need to step inside a world of teenage mutants, with powers ranging from mind control to fiery laser beams and from super speed to gravity suspension.I m not going to lie in the blissful aftermath of the final book and tell you this series is perfect I ve spent plenty of time talking about the problems I have with it and, while I do think many of these problems were resolved towards the end, I still think it s important to point out that in the first few books I felt the female characters were weak compared to the males I was glad that someone was writing a book that could easily be enjoyed by both male and female teenagers, but I couldn t fathom why the mutations had farimpressive and powerful results in the male characters Later, Grant gives these female characters greater development and you could argue that their ability to be tough without the strongest powers shows that their strength goes beyond supernatural abilities And there s Brianna, of course, who kicks ass.The story is about a town in California where suddenly, in the space of a millisecond, everybody over the age of fourteen disappears Every single adult is gone No doctors or police or parents The remaining children must try to get by the best they can but, in a world without adults, bullies are free to reign Rules can no longer be enforced There is no way to call for help and no one to hear you anyway And in this Lord of the Flies style scenario comes an even bigger threat some of the kids find themselves inexplicably developing powers Mutant powers.I think this series takes an excellent look at power, the abuse of it and the dark side of human nature I wish I d saved the quote from this book so I could share it but it says something about how quick we are to be outraged at the behaviour of others in certain situations when we cannot fully understand what it s like to be in those circumstances How we are all capable of doing unthinkable things when we reach breaking point but no one wants to admit it I liked how Grant looks into the background of each character and shows you why he or she could behave in a certain way it reminded me a little of Battle Royale and how their experience is unique because of who they are For a series that has such a huge cast of characters, they are incredibly different, well developed and memorable.This completely unrealistic situation is given some realism by the variety of characters that Grant brings into the story This series is one of the most multicultural I ve ever read with many different races, personalities and beliefs rich kids and poor kids and kids dealing with their developing sexuality Also, I liked the exploration of relationships and the honest depiction of sex This book is an excellent safe sex campaign even to the point of being over the top The good guys use condoms and all is good, the bad guys don t use condoms and it leads to view spoiler an evil alien pregnancy hide spoiler Well, I m sure there s a good message in there somewhere.Another thing I really enjoyed was the way Grant handled religion When something crazy like this happens, it is realistic to assume the characters will question their current religious beliefs, or sceptics will turn to religion and the guidance it offers Certain characters move through cycles of belief, questioning, doubt and disbelief, others discover a new meaning in religion, devout Christians see themselves turning their backs on the belief they d always put above all else I liked all of this I thought Grant told it in a realistic manner and the changes to each character made sense to me Throughout the series as a whole, Grant gets that perfect balance between religion and scepticism, in my opinion I read an excellent review of Plague by Paul over at Cuddlebuggery and he was concerned about the rejection of religion in the fourth book something which I had noticed too However, I feel that Grant restores the balance in the final book coming full circle to stand somewhere between religious belief and religious criticism.While I think the story was fascinating and well developed, I still think there was some untapped potential For me, the gaiaphage could have been explored in evendepth especially because the last book is 437 pages UK edition which is the shortest of the series Fear having 549, Plague 522 and Hunger a whopping 661 There was certainly plenty of room fordetail But, despite the large amount of action scenes, I think Grant s series is primarily about the characters how they cope and learn and survive I love looking back on a series and realising just how much the characters have grown from the first installment to the last.The resolution was as satisfying as the end of a six book journey can be I can t say I loved everything but I doubt it would have been possible to write a good ending that pleased everyone One thing I do know is that I will definitely be returning to the series for re reads in the future to experience this wild journey again and again

dead He was a great character, and I had just begun to love him, and he s dead I keep telling myself that this is how he would have wanted to go, but I m still numb and on the v Well, I finished it And one thing tastes bitter view spoiler CaineGod, I called that sacrifice And the gaiaphage being in his head And him writing letters and taking the blame for the FAYZ That is almost exactly the way I wanted him to go The Petey thing was just icing on the cake.And it sucks Because now he s dead He was a great character, and I had just begun to love him, and he s dead I keep telling myself that this is how he would have wanted to go, but I m still numb and on the verge of tears.Breeze s death hit me pretty hard, too, although part of me said, this makes sense, I mean, if you wanted to kill one character whose death would effect everyone, it would be Breeze Hell, even Caine liked her And I kept flashing back to her interview at the beginning, which was hilarious and adorable and an excellent example of why I love this series so much That was her, and then she was sitting on the floor with a hole burned through her chest Mood whiplash, you will be the death of me I would have liked to have seeninteraction with the parents, but we can t exactly spend all of the aftermath chapters going through every character s relations with their parents hide spoiler But there were also great things, things that made me say thank you, you have done well, Michael Grant view spoiler Caine, again, at the end How he took the blame for everything, and how he gave himself to Petey and ultimately saved them all There was a reason I wanted it that way, and that was because it was the best way for his story to be resolved He died a good person, in the end Even if it hurts, I approve When Sam broke out of his hotel room to find Astrid, I died That was beautiful Especially the part where he texted Quinn It was adorable, and I have to imagine them going surfing together Someday And how they invited Diana to come live with them Yes Yes Yes.I m not sure how I feel about them losing their powers It s mixed, I guess Sam s final confrontation with Drake felt justified, and I had been worried that it wouldn t come It came It felt right Dekka getting a picture of Brianna Loved it.Edilio finding Roger at the end, perfect Edilio deserved that The way he stepped up and took on Gaia, he deserved that happy ending.Diana trying to save the lake was great, as was having she and Astrid step up to lead the survivors It was two characters who often failed to be the heroes or managed to avoid the fights stepping up, and it was made even better by being two characters who didn t really like each other but came together Orc died a hero And that was all I really wanted for him I didn t feel sad at his death, because I felt that he had reached the best moment of his life.And Caine s letter to Diana I m going to cry I m never going to stop hide spoiler It seems impossible that it s over But it is.You wrote a great series, Mr Grant, a series that made me laugh and cry and tore my soul out and repaired my faith in humanity at the same time You gave us characters that weren t perfect, none of them were, and as we watched them spiral downward and occasionally overcome these flaws, I rooted for them I cheered for the good guys as they broke and the bad guys as they tried to be a little less bad Well, except for Drake Thank God that son of bitch is dead Thank you for killing him off.I know that I am free to leave the FAYZ now, but I might just have to stay For a little while longer, at least March 15, 2013I saw this quote Turn out the light, Sam Sam reached for the switch and turned out the light.Seems like nothing, right But guess what He turned off the lights With a light switch There is electricity.THEY ARE OUTSIDE.hmhmhmhhmhmhmmhhmmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhOct 15, 2012http www.youtube.com watch v mKVuR0 Did Breeze just dump Drakes head on a table Michael Grant,

ending must not be and then the FAYZ wall came down, and they stepped back into the world NO Because then we never know what happens to the freaks, who will probably be locked up in a facility like Toto was Caine will never have a screaming match with his mother and I need this to happen It should end with Breeze, Dekka, Lana, Sam, and Caine and Diana, provided she s alive escaping from said government facility, meeting up with Astrid, Edilio, Sanjit, Patrick and Quinn and Quinn s fedora then running away together.yes, that would be a good ending We all know that happily ever after went to hell in a handbasket the minute that wall appeared but eternity of getting probed in a government facility is too awful to live with

Fear.BEWARE OF EMOTIONAL OUTBURSTS, TOO.Originally published at Book Probe ReviewsTurn out the light, Sam Sam reached for the switch and turned out the light For the past four years I ve followed Michael Grant s Gone series I ll admit I came to this party almost three years late One day browsing Borders I stumbled upon this book with blue edged pages That book was, of course, the UK hardcover of Lies, the third book in the series, which had just been released On impulse, and being ignorant of the fact that it was the third in a series, I bought it I liked the blue But I had no idea that that impulse buy, sheerly on the colour and design of the book, would introduce me to a series of impressively written teenage characters, many whom to fall in love with, a series to follow and be apart of until the end in years to come e.g., now , and a series to call one of my favourites.This series also made me a fan of Michael Grant, an author who consistently pushes the boundaries of reality, of fiction for teens and young adult, producing a world such as the FAYZ that could very well happen, and a diverse range of characters, of young people, that could very well attend your school, or even be in your class, with crippling secrets and haunting pasts, with feelings and fears and desires that you would otherwise never had known they possessed if you did not take the chance to meet them, follow their stories, experience what they experienced, how they changed, for the better or for the worst For the past six years, six books, three thousand pages, from Gone all the way to Light, that is exactly what we, the readers, did We took a chance and met Michael Grant s characters Sam, Caine, Astrid, Diana, Pete, Quinn, Edilio, Lana, Brianna, Jack and all those others Even Drake and Brittany and the gaiaphage Gaia We took the plunge into Michael Grant s story, followed it from beginning to end, because we found something special within it, grew an attachment to it whatever it was For me it definitely was the characters, their struggles and triumphs, their fears and doubts, their beginnings and ends, that made me keep returning After reading the conclusion, the finale, the endgame, it was sad to say goodbye It truly was.So thank you Michael Grant For this series For these characters For a story and message s that will linger, forever, deep within, and whenever I look upon my shelf and see those books I will remember what they hold the power to choose the power to choose good, be good, wield good To not be afraid To be someone that chooses wisely, someone who uses their power whatever that power may be for good in changing and making the world a much better place to live in Every teenager that reads these books will understand, despite whatever they re battling depression, illness, failure, suicide, heartbreak, loss, addiction, sexuality, among others that the power lies in their hands, and we can only hope that they discover that power and use it to emit light, guidance, strength a future to look forward to And just like what I deduced from Fear, it s up to ourselves to transcend our deepest and darkest fears.Michael Grant understands his readers, the modern teenager, and enhances his stories with this understanding After all, we need to battle through darkness to discover a world of light Adults censoring or banning such works like Michael Grant s from their children could learn a thing or two, with the adults doing muchharm to those their protecting than these books could ever do none and quite the opposite.It s not easy ending a series and Michael Grant ended it with integrity and intrepidity, both of those things I love to see in what I read There was a lot of horror and pain, torment and loss in Light all of that belongs to be in the book, rightfully, dutifully Because, after all, we are human there s good and evil in each and every one of us, chances for redemption and atonement if we allow ourselves change in our lives, a chance to love and respect, a chance to live and survive We have that right if we choose to accept it There are other times when we are far beyond being given the right to choose, clouded too heavily in darkness That the choice, if there ever was one, was made without us even knowing, subconsciously, predetermined This was the case with Drake He was predetermined to take on a dark role within the FAYZ, and there really was no change in him since the first book other than physically and in his thirst forpower.Read on forspoilery stuff, you know, to do with Light view spoiler Drake barked out a laugh Do you have any idea how many shrinks have tried their words on me You think you can do better It has to be some sickness, some syndrome, right Put a label on it and everything will be better He laughed at the idea Are you as clueless as the rest of them, Astrid It s simple Here it is, here s the answer, Astrid the Genius it s fun to hurt people It s such it s such joy, Astrid Such joy realising that all that power is yours, and all the fear and pain is right there, in your victim Come on, smart girl, you know what it s called You know the word for it Come on, say it He cupped his hand to his ear, waiting for the word Evil, Astrid said.Draked laughed, threw up his hand wide, and nodded his head Evil There you go Good for you Evil It s in all of us You know that, too It was in you I saw it in your eyes as you looked down in that cooler Evil, hah We all want to have someone powerless beneath us while we stand over them His voice had grown husky We all want that We all want that Interspersed throughout the goings on within the dome is a few scenes of Connie Temple attempting to communicate with the kids inside the FAYZ in order to reach Sam During that she encounters Drake s grandfather, and their conversation ends with Grandfather Merwin talking about Drake He says that Drake was always a troubled kid after the death of his father, and although it is not said or even glimpsed at, Drake s young stepfather may have further shaped Drake to be who he became to be, before and even during the FAYZ But that s not stated and instead has Merwin saying he doesn t know what has happened to DrakeWhat happens when we do know she asked in a small voice I suppose we ll behave like a bunch of holier than thou hypocrites Because the alternative is to look at ourselves in the mirror and know that we are capable of dark and terrible things The conversation ends with Merwin saying, Dark and terrible things And the joys they bring Merwin shares a story of his time during the Vietnam War and it presents Merwin as someone that reflects directly in Drake Merwin said that he would pull the trigger again on a helpless Vietnamese prisoner if it needed to be done again because he took pleasure in the revenge Drake has exactly the same principles And throughout Light we see Drake consistently trying to get revenge on those that have annoyed him, tried to kill him, witnessing his psychopathic tendencies and the pleasure he gets out of what he does.Where one fails, another succeeds Drake was always one of the bad guys since the beginning he had no intention to do good whatsoever Then you have Caine who although was seen as a bad guy for most of the series, he never truly was depending on how you decide to see him We understood Caine and why he has always had the urge to control, to be on the top He never really did anything as evil as what Drake did But he still progressed and changed slowly as the series progressed It is in Light where Caine truly shines Fear forced Caine into a vulnerable state after what Penny did, but he still had his dignity and the objective to rise above everyone despite being stripped of the control he worked so hard to get Light is where he learns that he was doing it wrong all along, and decides to atone for everything he has done in the FAYZ And I won t spoil it because that was one of the major twists of this book that had me speechless, at how much a character could change in my eyes in six books Diana wants Caine to say that he loves her but Caine believes there s no point in saying that as it s all going to end, and the following quote has not a person such as Penny making him vulnerable, but rather the realisation of powerlessness when the FAYZ barrier comes down, as well as losing the love he has with Diana after not having such a sense of devotion in his life at allWhat s the point he pleaded I m running away I m saving myself and leaving you behind I m a rat deserting the sinking ship I m a coward holding on to his pathetic life for and extra hour or two I m scared to death I can t stand up to it anyI m done Why do you want me to say it Where Caine is an example of atonement, Charles orwidely known as Orc is a fine example of redemption Redemption not only within the people around him, from a bully to a near hero, but redemption in himself for overcoming his excessive alcohol drinking and addiction His transformation internally reflects in his transformation externally from back in Gone, from when he turned into some being composed of rocks and stone and gravel He went from being in a weak state to someone strong, a rock for other people if I may say Orc deserved his ending But did Caine deserve his Astrid smiled at him You have become one of the good guys, Charles If there was ever an example of redemption, it s you She hesitated only a moment out of fear of touching him, but then gave him a hug How strange he felt How alien.Quite a few moments in Light the characters think about life directly after and well beyond the FAYZ Would any of them be charged with murder, sent to prison Would any of them see each other again That all they have gone through will mean nothing in the eyes of the people on the outside, that it was all just a game and they can all just go home and live happy and normal lives What rights do teens really have in the real world, where their fantasies are almost non existent Where what they had in the FAYZ they would not have in the outside Where what is wanted or desired is overpowered by parents and society s expectations and authority What reward will they really get for surviving the FAYZ Was the FAYZ perfect after all That even within a bleak and disastrous world such as the FAYZ there was still happiness and comfort to revel in Early on in the book, at page 12 of the uncorrected proof at least , has Astrid thinking about her relationship with Sam and what it means for them in the future My God she was happy.The very idea that she should be happy was absurd It was almost a crime Things were desperate, but then they had been for a long time Desperate had long since became the new normal.If the barrier really did come down if this really was the endgame They were fifteen Out there, out in the world, they had no legal right to be together.They d been through hell They d been through a whole series of hells, and they were still together But none of that would mean anything in the eyes of the law Her parents, or his mother, could snap their fingers and break what Sam and Astrid had built.It was not the first time Astrid had had the thought that maybe liberation from the FAYZ would be no such thing.Each book has had their various villains or not quite villains, just confused individuals Drake Brittney has been a force to reckon with throughout the series, never being able to be killed as their body melds itself back together again no matter how many times Brianna slices them in pieces and scatters them across Perdido Beach But the real villain, the ultimate villain of the FAYZ, the thing that started it all fifteen years ago was the Gaiaphage, the Darkness, some entity that hit Perdido Beach s Nuclear Power Plant riding a meteorite At the end of Fear the Gaiaphage slips into the body of Diana s and Caine s baby so he can carry on with his plan of world domination In Light he is now known as Gaia, a child growing with speed as every day goes by, becomingpowerful Gaia possesses the abilities of those who are still alive in the FAYZ So when she kills one she loses their power But Sam s power is something the Darkness desired from the start, so the teen who can stop Gaia is someone Gaia cannot destroy Gaia is a vicious, demonic creature, and in Light it is pretty obvious that he she is not of this world, something that only cares for its own succession And in the end, Gaia truly doesn t understand humans you must understand humans in order to defeat them, you must know the chink in their armourI realised, when I saw the forest burning, how fascinating the firelight is It s beautiful, and people stare at it, don t they It destroys things and kills people, but humans love it Is it because they crave their own destruction, Sam I want to understand your kind I am going out into the wider world, and I must learn But first things first First, to escape this shell, this egg in which I have gestated, all eyes will be on the fire, all eyes blinded by the smoke, and when I walk out of here, out into your large world with its billions, no one will even see It s the beauty of light, don t you see, Sam It reveals, but it also distracts and blinds It s even better than darknesshide spoiler The title of this conclusion is perfect Light So many meanings and interpretations taken from one word That s what each book title had They not only meant their literal meanings but metaphorically, too In Light there was truth, revelations, clarity, in addition to that visual light at the end of the tunnel saying Each character had their defining moments to shine I couldn t have expected anything less from Michael Grant, and this series was ended with perfection, a blazing heavenly fire lit across the sky to signal a well fought victory You can bet I ll be going back to the beginning, where it all began to read from start to finish And even by the time I reach the Aftermath chapters of Light the second time round, the lives of the characters will continue to prosper long after the final page, no matter how many times I return to this book, and this series I may still addonto this just because I need this review to be perfect A mega huge thanks to Jen at Hardie Grant Egmont for sending me an uncorrected proof to review and cry over I pestered her for months on end and I think she deserves some hugs of thanks.

    I can t wait Although, not to criticize, but come on Gone Hunger Lies, Plague, Fear And now LIGHT Really Maybe the title should have been a LITTLE less positive It s making me worried that it will have a cruddy, cliche happy ending, like the FAYZ wall comes down, and everyone s happy and it s all virtual reality and the dead kids aren t really dead I m crossing my fingers that this amazing series won t end in an annoying way

    So I started reading this the night before school, I told myself that it was going to be very emotional for me and that I was going to cry a lot So the next day I continued reading at school, and as I was reading, I thought Ha, this isn t that bad after all, I don t even feel remotely upset , only to get half way through the book and find tears streaming down my cheeks and goosebumps on my arms, several times I had to stop reading because I seriously couldn t control my emotions, even now, wri So I started reading this the night before school, I told myself that it was going to be very emotional for me and that I was going to cry a lot So the next day I continued reading at school, and as I was reading, I thought Ha, this isn t that bad after all, I don t even feel remotely upset , only to get half way through the book and find tears streaming down my cheeks and goosebumps on my arms, several times I had to stop reading because I seriously couldn t control my emotions, even now, writing this review, I haven t stopped crying You are free to leave the FAYZ Michael Grant s last line in his acknowledgement, and at that, the waterworks were irreversible, many beloved characters die, but they also redeemed themselves, regained their honour, or die fighting, die heroes I sound really cheesy but many of you must understand how traumatised I am It s not sinking in, even as I m crying I can t believe that they re over, I ve become so used to waiting annually for each sequel to come out, and now I don t get that tradition next year.I loved these series and its characters I feel like an era has ended The FAYZ will actually be missed, so will the coyotes, the Gaiaphage Gaia, Edilio, Caine, Quinn, Sam, Astrid, Diana, Dekka, Brianna The Breeze , Jack, Orc, Howard, Albert, E.Z, Duck Zhang, Lana, Taylor, Dhara, Zil and even DRAKE and PENNY ALL OF THEM Without them The GONE series wouldn t have been what they are.flag
