I don't love the cover for PODS but the book was pretty good. Eva is pretty smart and determined. She is chosen to live in the POD system but her parents can not come with, therefore are expected to die. She has to endure a lot of blood tests and quarantine before she can get into the PODS and the test continue once she is there. She is put with a group of strangers about the same age as her and for the most part everyone gets along besides one. It was a tad bit boring during some of the PODS time but it went by quickly and picked up once Eva was released.
The characters were great. Each one brought their own personality and background to the story. The situations these 'kids' are put into are pretty nuts. They weather the storm pretty well though. Eva and David butt heads a lot but quickly develop feelings for each other. I enjoyed following their romance. I loved the reveal of the mutated virus. I was not expecting that and it was a great addition to the story.
I didn't realize that PODS was part of a series until I saw that there was a sequel coming from the authors website. I would have been fine with the ending being just that but I am glad we will get more.
Eva and David are just, well, wow. Loved them. Loved their relationship, the way Eva handled herself, David's devotion, and their clear love for one another. I rooted for them the whole way through, even when I had no friggin' clue how on earth they were going to get out of a situation. Seriously, a few places I was sitting there reading, practically tearing my hair out to read faster, just so I'd know what happened :) This was definitely a keep-me-up-til-the-middle-of-the-night book. I loved it!!
**WARNING: Contains some spoilers**
PODs was an unusual read for me, to the point I'm left floundering and completely at a loss for how to rate it. After finishing reading the book this morning, I'm actually still not 100% sure as to my thoughts about it, and I'm having trouble putting it into words how it made me feel.
Did I enjoy the book? Well, I really just ... don't know.
I mean, it had some issues that made this a less than fluid read for me, and I'm not sure if those are the factors driving this uncertainty, or if it's something else.
As you can see by my nonsensical waffle, I truly am at a loss.
So, maybe I can make some sense if I simply write what I did or didn't like about the book.
To begin, I kinda thought YES! The writing seemed smooth, and quite fast-paced, and the conflict had been identified so I knew where the story was going and who and what to root for.
But then, that opening pace seemed to vanish into the stratosphere, leaving the rest of the book to drag along the ground like animal-savaged victim--who's lost both his legs.
To begin with, I kinda liked Eva. I felt for her, and dreaded what I knew she headed toward, and what we know she's leaving behind. Yet, for reasons I simply cannot fathom, I just didn't connect with her.Read more ›
Blurb from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it's in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it's a balm for the broken soul.
After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That's the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating... monsters.
Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life--a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure.
First I must say a big thank you for Spencer Hill Press for trusting me with this book. When I first saw the cover, I was totally intrigued. Then I read the blurb (something I do not often do) and I just had to have it. I love a good dystopian for sure and the premise of this one was awesome: virus attacks, people hole up in pods, then they get released and basically restart society. It's a total pull me in for sure. And I love the way things are depicted on the cover.Read more ›
