Review: Gone


Gone by Michael Grant

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

DNF at 10%

And I failed. Again.

I've tried twice to read this book, but both times I haven't managed to do it. It's just simply not for me. The concept is interesting, really, but I'm not intrigued by it anymore.

When I read what this was about, I was really excited, I remember, but that excitement faded away quickly with time, until one day I could no longer remember that I had been planning to read this.

That's when some reviews about this book started to appear.

If you were wondering if this was what aroused my curiosity for a second time, then you're right: When positive reviews about this book (series) started to pop out, I felt again that thrill, and I decided to give it a try. But I couldn't get past page ten.

Page ten, my dear friends. I couldn't get past page ten!! I found it boring, and all my curiosity had already died by that point. So that was a did-not-finish for me.

But again, some time later (like a year after), another wave of positive reviews started to appear, and again, my curiosity was awakened. And to make a long story short, I tried to give it a second chance and read it... but I failed again.

I found it more boring than the first time, just now I was not only bored but annoyed by the main characters. They all felt unrealistic and dull. Sorry if you don't agree with me, but I just didn't like any single of them.

At some point, things started to get better, however, by that point, I no longer wanted to read the book and I found myself skimming. This was when I made my final decision to leave this book unfinished.

No more tries for this one. Sorry, not sorry. Maybe it'll do for you, but for me, it didn't.
