I thoroughly enjoyed the immense amount of action that kept me wanting more, there's twists throughout the story that keep you on your toes in suspense. Ruby is later locked into her garage by her parents. I could hear the music when Ruby and Liam were dancing by the fire. Granted, the government isn't the most rational of entities, but let's think of it this way. Er hat die Elisabethanische Ära in England, die Expeditionen von Captain Cook in der Südsee, Paris der zwanziger Jahre erlebt und alle paar Jahre eine neue Identität angenommen.
It's incredibly dark and disturbing, but more than that, there's a certain realism to Alexandra Bracken's writing that makes the plot believable in a way few other books in the genre are. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. But mostly, I just wished it would pick up. She contacts the leader and negotiates a deal in order to save Chubs. The Darkest Minds succeeds where I feel 99% of dystopian novels fail in creating a terrifyingly dark yet realistic world that could very much happen tomorrow. Instead of the whiney, angsty novel I was expecting I was taken on a fast paced adventure ride. It's set after most of the world's children have died and the survivors have developed psychic powers, leading to mass incarceration and executions.
She wakes up in the infirmary and the doctor, Doctor Begbie secretly offers Ruby escape from Thurmond if she takes a little bag of pills. Hundreds of thousands of kids are dying. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. They discuss the fact that Rob was supposed to have two kids with him as well, but he breaks the news that he wasn't able to get them out of their camp. There is also a great cast of secondary characters. Then there was The Ending. I'm amazed I actually managed to struggle through those hundreds of pages in the middle, given that at least 200 pages could have been cut from and it still would have told the same story.
Liam and chubs are still perfect. What I loved the most was that the story of The Darkest Minds was able to draw me in for hours at a time and left me saddened at the end of the first book wishing there was a sequel readily available for me to read immediately. Aber nicht so schlimm wie: Alterspubertät! Ash blonde hair, blue eyes, slight scruff. I went into this book expecting some badass, kickass action scenes with a strong heroine, but what I got was a boring ass long as fuck road trip story with some dun dun dun. In danger of being killed, Ruby has been hiding the true nature of her powers for years. I loved the fact that she struggled with her ability throughout the entirety of the novel. Sie blockieren die Notaufnahme im Krankenhaus mit Lappalien, diktieren der Schulmensa den Speiseplan oder fordern vorgewärmte Klobrillen für ihre süßen Schätzchen in der Kita: Helikopter-Eltern gehen ihrer Umwelt gehörig auf die Nerven.
No, but I'm glad I did read this, because I met Chubs. Enough with vampires and werewolves and faeries and witches. To be sure, the disorientation that accompanies Bracken's too-gradual revealing of these details mirrors Ruby's own confusion and frustration; that being said, it's possible that some readers may give up on the story out of sheer bewilderment. They're there to abuse and hurt and nothing else. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. This time should have been no different.
Book one in the hit series that's soon to be a major motion picture starring Amandla Stenberg and Mandy Moore--now with a stunning new look and an exclusive bonus short story featuring Liam and his brother, Cole. Was als beschauliche Heißluftballonfahrt zum 101. Da ist das Gesicht ihres Mannes, der sie bedroht. Wer ist ihre Mutter wirklich? There's a Social Security crisis right now because there are too many old people who need support and not enough of the working young giving tax dollars to support them. I liked that it centered around a disease that killed off the majority of Children but left those that remained with certain abilities. The world-building and plot are phenomenal it leaves you absolutely breathless in spots! Hours would pass before I was able to piece myself back together. With an average rating of over 4.
The Darkest Minds series is comprised of three novels and a collection of three novellas found in Through the Dark. Across the country, many Psi parents hand their children over to the special police force, without any form of resistance. Das Känguru ist Kommunist und steht total auf Nirvana. Ruby is an amazing main character. Did my eyeballs miss something?? Ruby, Chubs, and Lee manage to escape when the camp is overrun by Psi soldiers and they continue their travels, eventually finding the father of Jack, another of their friends who was killed during an escape attempt.
Yeah, I don't think our government is that stupid. Zu i just want to wrap her in a blanket and keep her safe. Ruby: What a weak heroine. It involves action, adventure, a dystopian world and some romance. This opinion might be skewed a bit.
