Jean Ure ´ 2 Summary

Review Plague Contents Plague Contents Review Ô 2 R to rebuild society avoiding mankind's previous mistakes at the dawn of a new millennium Do they also have the courage. Reading this book was kind of eerie because it felt a little too real and a little too close to being a reality we could face I m not totally sure how I feel about this book On one hand being that I have a weird love for end of the world type books I felt I had to read this when I heard about this And although the topic is interesting I couldn t help but feel like it was lacking something And it kind of felt like it could have been so much I struggled to connect with the characters and although I liked some of them I felt like they were lacking depth The story as well seemed to be just kind of ticking along And most of it I managed to guess fairly early All I could say is it was ok and is ok if you just want something to pass some time and not feel too involved in I just wish it felt complete and time had been spent on the characters and plot I can t see this as being one I would hold onto purely because I would remember it too much So a 3 star and off to a charity shop I thinkI will however read the next ones in hope some depth may be added to the story

Review Plague Contents Plague Contents Review Ô 2 Enagers Together they must come to terms with the man made devastation around themFran Harriet and Shahid have the powe. This was one of the first post apocalyptic books I ever read not long after it was published in 1989 I was the same age as the main characters back then and I remember enjoying it I was keen to read it again as I m currently hooked on end of the world storiesSadly it seemed nowhere near as good as I remembered it and it was rather disappointing The book follows Shahid Harriet and Fran three schoolfriends from Croydon as they attempt to deal with the aftermath of a virulent disease that rapidly kills a huge chunk of the population Good concept butpoorly executed The opening plot development is that Fran has been on a camping trip in a remote area for a month and returns to London unaware that the plague has happened This really doesn t seem credible Even in the days before mobile phones it doesn t seem possible that a major emergency could break out without anyone going to tell the people at the camp The UK is very densely populated and even the very remote bits can easily be reached uickly Next when the organisers drive the campers back to London they completely fail to notice anything is wrong Again this isn t credible all hell would have broken loose There would be chaos on the streets The descriptions of what s happened conveniently omit the fact that there would be bodies everywhere widespread damage and looting and the people left there are a few would probably form into roving gangs Everything is far too tidyToo little actually happens and the main characters have practically no interaction with the other survivors Also the main characters are incredibly annoying and two dimensional Fran is bland and pathetic and practically devoid of any personality and her parents are described like they were about 150 years old Harriet is just a giant tantrum throwing toddler with no redeeming features and Shahid is Stereotypical Conflicted Muslim Guy Harriet randomly disappears and it s a relief when she doesThe author states in an interview that she suffered severe writers block about two thirds of the way through and it really shows with an abrupt and lengthy change of style that doesn t really workThe book is also full of issues that seem very clumsily shoehorned in It ends very abruptly obviously to set things up for a seuel but it feels like practically nothing happens Empty World by John Christopher handles the subject matter much effectively
