GONE by Lisa McMann
About GONE (taken from goodreads.com)
Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she’d made her peace with it. But she can’t handle dragging Cabel down with her.
She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He’s amazing. And she’s a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves; she has to disappear. And it’s going to kill them both.
Then a stranger enters her life–and everything unravels. The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she’d ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out.
Review of GONE
This book was nothing like the first two. Not in a good way. The first two were pretty bad but this one took it to a whole new level. At least the other two had some cool detective work and stuff. That made it interesting. This one is terrible. There’s no action or anything to keep you entertained. It’s basically just Janie worrying about when she’s going to go blind and how Cabel won’t stay with her. It’s just bad.
The characters didn’t develop at all. Janie is still a whiny baby and Cabel thinks he can take on the world. Not very good qualities for the main characters that you have to read about the whole time. They’re mostly just annoying and that’s all you think about during the whole book. Plus there’s Janie’s mother who has pretty much no part in any of the books other than to be extra annoying. In this book we are introduced to Janie’s dad but he’s basically dead so he’s just kind of there. Then Janie just takes over his house and business, like that’s not illegal or anything.
I could go on about this book for a while but I’m going to save you the pain. I DO NOT recommend this book unless you think it’s fun to torture yourself.
