I really loved reading this storyline, due to that is happening to the world anything could happen then you add in the human element and how predictable we can be in times of crisis and you just don't know what will be around the next corner and i think that was what i enjoyed the most about this book was the element of unpredictability and surprise! It is written in such a way that this is something that you can realistically see happening and i believe this is down to how descriptive the author has made the telling of this tale.
The characters are extremely likeable, they are just average people who can be scared, and fear is a powerful motivator, making people do things that they wouldn't normally do and this is very apparent in this book. So although there is a lot of fear there is also a willingness to live and try to salvage something from this new world and there is hope and hope is also a very powerful thing. So one of my favourite characters is someone i didn't expect and that was Jerome. He is a very quiet guy and only says things that need to be said but the more you learn about him and see a window into his past it becomes apparent why he is like this. He has a quiet strength, with a low level tolerance for bullies and a protective streak a mile wide!
This is a brilliant read written by a very talented author that i seriously recommend!!! Go out and get this book to check it out for yourself!!!
It is rather scary. I lost sleep that thinking about what I would do, what I would need, the best options for food, (protein bars- light weight, small enough to be able to carry lots of them, but still providing the most necessary nutrients. And several of those Safe Straws that allow you to drink water from just about any source safely. And absolutely a gun and as much ammo as possible!) It took me a couple hours to finally drop back to sleep! The characters in the story were interesting, but there were a few real holes. They really didn’t take advantage of what was around them, surviving in more of a panic mode. These were smarter than average kids who would have thought things through more carefully, done more to protect themselves than they did. The ending really made no sense. There was no logic to them being out on the street setting up a blockade once they got “home.” They’d have all been inside a house, getting much needed rest and food before figuring out what to do next. I had forgotten that this was a multi-book series and was kind of taken aback at the story not really ending, hence 4 stars not 5. I try never to buy”series” because I feel it is a scam to force you to buy more books to continue the story. I hope all ends well as I won’t be buying more books to find out, just on principle.
Laney is on a field trip with her class. They are headed to an underground facility. The teachers and students just got off the bus to the Visitor's Center when something bright falls from the sky. The teachers rush the student into the Visitor's Center and send the first ten down the elevator. They go through their tour only to find that the second group has not come down yet. The doctor pushes for the elevator to come down and the door opens only to find one of the teachers laying in the elevator burned and dying.
These 10 kids are left to fight for their lives. The sun burns them as they go out in it to try and see if any of the vehicles will start. Turns out the ozone layer is gone. The whole western side of the US is assumed dead and no help is coming for them. They must find a way to get out of the Visitor's Center and find food. One of the boys decides that he is boss and will try to harm anyone that tries to speak up against him. David the boss, turns on Laney and her two friends, Jeremy and Alana, and locks them in a tiny bathroom with no protection from the sun. They must come up with a plan to get away from David and the rest of the group before he kills them.
The Pulse was an excellent read and I wish I had the second book already. I read over half of this book in one night!! I am left hanging and need more!! I love this genre of books and I was not disappointed with Holly Hook's book!! I definitely can't wait to read the next two books in this trilogy!!
