In conclusion it is my feeling, and my feeling alone, that the author may have written these three books separately and with time gaps in between. There are too many questions that remained to have this be a continuous writing.............
Periodically, though, the boys undergo ritualistic torture to free their minds for "Foreverland," where undisciplined revelry is expected, and the boys can acquire any superpower their imagination can conceive. These boys would gladly go to Foreverland without it; why is the torture necessary? Who is the red-haired girl living only in Foreverland? Who are the sponsors, and why is each paired with a boy in such a creepy and unwholesome way?
And what lives in the sinister gray fog that seems to form the boundary of Foreverland?
In showing the boys' focus on pleasure and undisciplined power, this story reminded me strongly of another fictional island you may remember. In the Italian novel, Pinocchio is lured to the *Land of Toys* by the promise of endless fun. The Disney film renamed it "Pleasure Island," making its island nature more obvious. I recall being appalled as a child by the vicious naughtiness of the boys who were choosing to become beasts of burden on Pleasure Island, and caught that allusion to a "Lord of the Flies" degeneracy of young boys unleashed from any adult discipline in Bertauski's Annihilation.
Interesting in this context, a later Italian film renames Pinocchio's island yet again: *Fun Forever Land*. Perhaps Bertauski has seen that movie.
To give you an idea of the story's landscape without giving away too much detail, the vibe was a little Hunger Games meets Maze Runner meets Divergent. That said, "another young adult, dystopian world series" might seem fitting, but don't let that stop you. Foreverland is a captivating story that explores human nature, class hierarchy, and the reality of... reality.
