It wasn't a waste. It really works...I just bought the 4th book and can't wait to start it. The Breakers series is a glimpse into a world when everything falls apart. The good the bad and the really, really ugly. Each book in this collection focuses on a single person and how the disaster that nearly destroys the world impacts their lives.
The first book fucuses on Walt. Walt, in New York loves his girlfriend and when she dies during the plague, he is so despondent that he literally walks away thinking he'll die on the way to the west coast where his love had always wanted to go but he kept her from her dreams....In his quest to see the ocean, his struggle includes fighting the aliens....he's a real anti-hero...still has flaws and warts...
The second book is about a pair of feuding brothers who end up in a small settlement with its own power generating. Only problem is, there are the haves and the have nots...In the end the two come together, a geek and a Rambo finding common ground and fighting to make life better.
The third book is about a wild child that loses her family, is taken in and when her second father dies and her mother is taken away, she spurs a rebellion to end all rebellions. She's twisted, funny, and definitely the life of the rebellion.
Characters from the first two books show up in the third book so once you get to know someone, they drift back in and out of the stories. They still are as damaged and twisted and didn't become saints, just more real in fighting for what they believed in.
Oh, by the way...the reason this package is such a bargain...it's a great read and over 1000 pages....so well worth the bargain price...now I get to read the next book...The Reapers.
This series happens to be on sale right now, but I assure you that if you miss the sale price, yes, it IS worth picking it up at full price! Here are some of the positives:
~ Each book was written with it's own characters and it's own complete story. But characters I recognized, like Walt or the kid who befriended the alien (I forget his name) popped up in later books, after I thought their stories were told. Not so often that I got tired of them, just often enough that it was a pleasant surprise. "Oh, there you are again!" For instance, Walt was the main character in the first book, but he appeared briefly - and unexpectedly - in both 2 and 3. It was a charming, fun writer's "trick" that I haven't seen before.
~ As the books go on, the aliens' side of the story of the story is revealed and the reader's opinion starts to shift from that "HATE ALIENS!" mindset that Robertson so carefully created.
~ I didn't get snagged by lousy grammar and typos (those of you who complained about this, maybe you downloaded an early version?). I Love this, because ebooks littered with typos are distracting, and I've abandoned books that are full of them. A minor thing to some, but it matters to me.
Negatives? Hmm, nothing comes to mind.
One last thing: Book 4 does NOT fit with the series, though it's a great read on it's own. Read my review for the details.
My free time is limited, I check reviews and research every book before I commit to the long hours it requires to read them. Never mind a series. Let me say this....is was time well spent! So much so, I'm excited about the next set in this series. The author is unbelievably imaginative, authentic and stands out among some of the best writers out there.
I don't mention this lightly, I enjoyed it very much and I promise YOU will too!
