Currently I’m on the second GONE series book called HUNGER and I have to tell you, my fellow foreign English speaker, that these books are simply amazing!
It’s typical dystopian fiction – except for the fact that it’s set in these days as opposed to the future – and it depicts life without adults.
Anyone over the age of 15 has simply gone, and kids are left to their own devices to figure out what’s happening and also to figure out how to run the society where there aren’t any services available – such as medical, food production & distribution and so on.
Now, remember your own childhood. You surely wished at some stage that you’d be left alone to do as you wish and no adult would tell you what to do?
Well, GONE series is a perfect way of re-living that fantasy! You’ll be able to experience all the joys and also downsides of what such an adult-free life would bring through the main characters of the books – Sam, Astrid, Edilio and plenty of other mutants and also normal children.
Oh, yes, did I mention some of the children in FAYZ (which stands for Fallout Alley Youth Zone – the area where the children live surrounded by a gigantic wall which appeared at the moment when all the adults vanished) developed mutant powers?
It’s not so dissimilar from the X-men movie mutants and their powers; in GONE series books you have children being capable of controlling objects, burning things, reading dreams, controlling gravity and moving super-fast.
On top of it all, it’s written in plain, simple English which makes these books the ideal read for foreign English speakers like me or you!
So, watch the video above where I’m talking about these books, and I’ll be posting updates on each individual book in the series as I read them one by one.
