The Epidemic by Suzanne Young
The Epidemic - Suzanne Young The Epidemic - Suzanne Young

Looking forward to reading The Adjustment now.
This is a series that I doubt I will tire of. Quinn and Deacon have me swept into this dramatic society, and their love story. I feel like I just can't stop until I know that they are safe and get away from The Program. You might not have a clue what I'm talking about, and that is okay, but you can easily catch on by reading the series.
This book was exciting for me. Maybe more so than some of the others in the series. It was the great chase that had me intrigued. Sure, there is usually a lot of chasing going on, but this had some sleuthing too. I guess that combo made it better.
It really is a good series. Some solid storytelling and not what you would normally read I bet.

Feral Youth
Feral Youth - Shaun David Hutchinson,Suzanne Young,Marieke Nijkamp,Robin Talley,Stephanie Kuehn,E. C. Myers,Tim Floreen,Alaya Dawn Johnson,Justina Ireland,Brandy Colbert
This wasn’t exactly the novel I was hoping it would be. The side stories by the different authors were nothing to scream about, I didn’t think, but the main story about the ten delinquents left out in the woods for three days was what, had my attention. I wanted more of this story, I wanted to know what became of them, I just wished the book contained more of their journey.
 
They had spent three weeks preparing for their three-day stint in the woods. The ten teenagers each have their own reasons for being a part of this outreach program, some more severe than others. Blindfolded on their drive in, the teens are dropped off in the woods and are given three days to reach their destination. In a perfect world, the teens would have used teamwork, cooperation, and survival skills to make it to the end but this is not a perfect world and we see that, the minute the van drives away. They were teens, they had egos and some immediately formed groups. Some just wanted to make it to the pick-up point and some just didn’t care. They had three days, just three days but to them, it was a lifetime.
 
Gio, the individual telling the story brought up the idea of the teens telling original stories after the teens started to argue about water. Yeah, some thought the idea was stupid until Gio offered up a hundred dollars for the story that he thought was the best. That shut them up and soon the stories began. Each of the stories were different, there was no central theme running throughout them. There was a bit of truth in a few of the stories, it just depended upon the individual who was speaking. Gio was right, it did keep them busy, their minds were occupied and they couldn’t wait to hear what someone else had to say.
 
I liked reading about the teens adventure. I found it interesting as a group how they tried to tackle this assignment. There was an injury along the way and seeing how the characters handled that situation said a lot for that character. People talk the talk but until you walk the walk, you never really know. They were all individual others thought (and a few of these teens thought) were delinquents, but were they really? I didn’t care for the stories that the teens told as they walked. I thought they were simple and juvenile. I kept hoping as I read that that next one would be better so I could pick the winner.

I wasn't feeling this, I don't know, the love triangle was beyond annoying in this second book...and I'm just wondering how I gave the first book 5 stars…smh.  It wasn't a bad follow-up, just kind of juvenile…with a less than believable storyline…all culminating in a somewhat rushed ending.  Hhhmm…that sounds kind of bad, huh? I will say that it's overall message is attempting to be redemptive...and, it almost got there.

 

Will I continue this series⇜  I think this was the ending to Sloan and James stories…and I'm not really feeling like I want to read anything else taking place in this world, so…probably not.

Etwas schwächer, als der erste Teil - aber ein mega Ende
Ich. erinnere. mich.: Roman - Katharina Woicke,Suzanne Young

Den ersten Teil "Du. Wirst. Vergessen." habe ich erst vor wenigen Tagen gelesen und war nahezu begeistert. Vielleicht bin ich deswegen mit etwas zu hohen Erwartungen an die Fortsetzung gegangen, denn diese konnten leider nicht ganz erfüllt werden.

 
Es geht nahtlos weiter. Sloane und James fliehen und schließen sich schließlich den Rebellen an. Dort treffen sie auf alte Bekannte, unter denen sich auch Michael Realm befindet, den Sloane im Programm kennengelernt hat. Zusammen mit den anderen flüchten sie nun von Versteck zu Versteck und dabei herrschen nebenbei auch ziemliche Eifersuchtsszenen. Vertrauen spielt hier eine große Rolle und nicht nur einmal wird dieses gebrochen.
 
Ich will jetzt nicht zu viel schreiben, denn sonst könnte es ein Spoiler werden. 
Insgesamt fand ich diesen Teil schon ganz gut, allerdings nervte mich oft dieses "Gehabe" von Realm, wenn er immer um Sloane herumwirbelte und sie für sich gewinnen wollte. Außerdem hatte ich dann doch ca in der Mitte das Gefühl, dass sich das Ganze ziemlich zieht und nichts wirkliches passieren würde. 
Interessant waren jedoch die Figuren. Vor allem Dallas. Auch, wenn sie mir etwas unsympathisch war...  Sie nimmt ja wirklich kein Blatt vorm Mund und ich hatte mich mehrmals gefragt, ob sie nicht vielleicht eine der Verräter sein könnte. Umso mehr war ich dann überrascht, als man der Aufklärung immer näher kam.
Der letzte Teil hat mich dann aber auch wieder sehr gefesselt und ich war unheimlich gespannt, wie Sloane da wieder rauskommt und ob das Alles ein gutes Ende nimmt. Ehrlich gesagt war es nahezu unmöglich für mich, das Buch zur Seite zu legen, denn ich musste es einfach wissen. Und dann war es zu Ende.
 
Das Ende fand ich wirklich sehr gut gelungen und konnte so gut mit der Geschichte abschließen. Auch, wenn ich diesen Teil für schwächer, als den Vorgänger halte, sollte man die Fortsetzung auf jeden Fall lesen. Denn hier werden einige Fragen aus Teil 1 beantwortet und es gibt einige Überraschungen.
