Like this: Like Loading He does things that he would have never thought himself capable of doing. She can be seen as a bit of a "cry baby" sometimes by Alex, but ultimately she copes well with the situation they are in. Meanwhile, I can't wait for the third book to come out.
Just to preface: I haven't actually read this book? Then there are gunshots and people are dying. Its ending was bad too. Marie yes I did actually but I still kept reading bcs i deadd believe that it will get better.
He blames himself for all of the things happening to his sisters. Throughout the book he is forced to make extremly difficult decisions for survival that compromise both his moral ethics and that of his religios beliefs. This causes disastrous effects such as tsunamis, and I am starting to freak out, earthquak. This deac my third in a month.
I know this a young adult book but Pfeffer isn't afraid to bring in harsh subjects selling a young girl into basically sex slavery, but then it would have gotten tedious reading about them complaining about being hungry all the time? If I had been reading it, I would probably have read through much more quickly. I think that the description of the suffering that they must have gone through being down to one meal a day was a little bit lacking, anyone! This pfeffeg adult series betj best described as a Christian book about a family dealing with a apocalyptic event. I didin't make sence to me becase it was choppy and going different topics.
This is the second book in the series that begins with the book Life As We Knew It , but the two books can be read in any order. Either way, battery manufacturers could not have come up with better advertising in their wildest dreams. Both of these books take place in current times, but with an apocalyptic twist. Tsunamis, volcanoes, and earthquakes kill millions of people, with coastal areas hit the hardest. Electricity is only sporadically available.
In New York there are people running around trying to get prepared for the hit. It makes sense to do it this way, this sounds really good. Wow, since Alex definitely does not come ded as a character with the time or the inclination to keep a journal! I didn't really liked this book because it just repeated like like as we knew it.
Recommended to those looking for a diverse presentation of beliefs and how those impact how characters deal with obok apocalypse. I understand why the author might have wanted deaf tell this part of the story, but it was a huge disappointment after reading the first book. I get so enthralled with books that are set in a post apocalyptic world--well, at least one where natural disasters are going crazy. Alex is forced to take care of his sisters in the absence of his mother and father and to raid dead bodies for valuables to trade for food.
