The Dead and the Gone (Last Survivors, #2)The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m torn on this one. While I did enjoy the book and it was probably pretty realistic for such a scenario, it always seemed to continue at the same pace. The plot structure just seemed a bit off. Or perhaps I should say it lacked plot structure. Very good writing. I like the characters, though I thought she overused the “I hate you” from the younger sister. We get the point, the she’s a bit of a brat. She did, however, undergo a fantastic character arc for a secondary character. Nicely done.

Overall I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys post-apocalyptic novels. It’s always fun to play “what if” in those kind of situations. Nearly impossible to know what would really happen. But I think it’s safe to assume New York would become a dangerous and desolate place.

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.
