So far I have only read the first of this trilogy but I had to post my review even before reading the other two. This one of the most unputdownable books I have ever read. It may be meant to be for teenagers, well, I left my teens behind a very long time ago, but I still found the story incredible.
The way the children on the island cope with this horrendous situation is amazing, and my first reaction was, no, they would be more like the children in The Lord of the Flies, but realised that the author had got it right when Abbey and Jordan get to the mainland and find how other children had coped.
I hope I will be able to write more when I have read the other two books, but I am not sure if I will be allowed to write another review.
All I can say is, start reading this, and I bet you can't put it down.
It is now a few days later, and I have finished the last book. I can only repeat, it is "unputdownable". There was very faint trace (to my mind) of Brave New World near the end of the third book, if you know it, I think you will recognise it when you get to it.
Phenomenal stories, I do hope a lot more people read them.
