The Most Wonderful Time of the Year? Thanks for the great review, Giselle! Is it a war story? But none of this affected how much i enjoyed this book. No author should write about such serious matters thoughtlessly and immaturely. How did the virus work, why were some people effected blaclout not others?

I really did find the plot of Blackout to be exciting and fast-paced. There are probably other books almost exactly like this one, only better quality and at least more interesting. I really enjoyed the plot and enjoyed the story, I just wish there had been a bit more character development.

Andrea The Overstuffed Bookcase. All thoughts and opinions expressed well to the individuals that wrote them and do not reflect the views of any outside affiliations including the libraries that we work at, the professional journals dells we work with, or VOYA magazine, etc. It sucks because the summary of the book sounds good.

But I guess my issue is that, not only were all of them boooring, Alec and Laura are welle evil and I could never figure out why they were the way they wrlls, besides the fact that that’s how they were raised.


I never really connected with any of their characters and honestly, it was hard to have any sympathy for them because of their actions. I didn’t connect with them or understand why they were doing what they were doing.

The characters were boring, and the plot was not as interesting as I hoped it would be. Is it a post-apocalyptic novel? Apr 29, Ashley rated it really liked it Shelves: Sep 04, Mykia rated it it was ok Shelves: I was looking for a scientific explanation for how this virus, but I never got one. It would have helped if we had vlackout some world building, surely. I’m really hoping for a redemption from the sequel coming out this September.

If you are looking for a dystopian novel, there are so many better options out there. Additionally, we only get a brief account of the war itself, mostly what has been targeted. And these four are about to find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and catastrophic danger—where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.
