I know it's fiction BUT there has to be some level of realism to enable the "suspension of disbelief", here there was simply too much wrong to endure reading another of this series.
NOT recommended to PA readers.
Just My Opinion, YMMV
Mitch and April's characters are well developed, with portrayals of strengths and weaknesses. Both of them draw strength from the other in various ways, learning to trust and adapt in a world cast into chaos. Each of them are forced to take violent measures when their lives are interrupted by those who prey on the weak. Armed with the skills taught by their father's, Mitch and April team up and move toward their destination, but not without detours.
One would think, by reading the description of the story, this book is about a love story. It's not...it's about two people trying to survive and get home. It does have some teenage 'feelings' presented, but nothing indepth to take away from the actual premise of the story line. Hey, it's what teenagers do, and I thought the author portrayed that part of character very well without getting carried away.
This story flows quite well, with interesting tidbits of information about nature, forests and rivers. Editing was good, with only a few missing words, or where words shouldn't be...but that may have been my Kindle format. Overall, I don't regret purchasing this book, albeit, a bit over-priced. Nevertheless, when I enjoy a good read, and feel satisfied at the end, (actually, I didn't want it to end), then it becomes priceless.
The ending is left open for a possible sequel. If there is, I'll read it.
I loved the fact it didn't seem to shove any particular religious/political theory down my throat. I appreciated the occaisional glimpses of humor, the entire "crush" development, and the kind of hollow but joyful ending.
Over all it really was one of those books that seem like you have spent a few hours with a good friend. Read it, I think you'll enjoy it.
