As for this book being realistic, however, it was definitely not. Marianne Boricuan Bookworms October 1st, Nov 06, Mrs. View all 3 comments. This remind anyone else of The Darkest Minds? After three weeks of nonstop terrorist attacks around the country—from the fall of the St. It’s also frustrating because this book is told through several perspectives, one of them being one blzckout the terrorists, yet we don’t get any significant details, still.
Kids being infected with powers? Opinions shared by others in comments may not reflect my own. Tobison 17, Lauren rated it did not like it Shelves: Instead, this book is filled with lackluster worldbuilding, juvenile writing and underdeveloped characters; and a heck of a lot of action. She’s known to be sarcastic and rarely serious.
Dan creates an avalanche and he and Laura seem to get caught in it. What are they trying to terrorise, while some answers were hinting throughout, this lack of world building let down not only my enjoyment towards the characters but also to my overall attention to this book.
It does sound very interesting and good though based off of the blurb. There was no reason for them to ever meet. She’s also the mind behind Xpresso Book Tours. Charlie Reading to the Stars and Back.

This book is NOT robsion zombies. In Blackout we follow the perspective of four young people. Jack and Aubrey turn themselves in. Not because of the age difference, as I am an adult, but because the focus wasn’t on anyone in particular, but all over the place.

Aman October 2nd, Sounds like if the world building had been better it would have been a knock out. Is it gonna wellw back?? We never really know why the terrorist terrorise or where the disease came from etc. Imagine you’re a teen finding out you have a superpower. And the blackmail did in no way require Aubrey to treat Jack like he didn’t exist.
Want to Read saving…. But eells, a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, infecting teenagers with impossible powers.
Blackout Series by Robison Wells
So quite obviously, I was not a fan of Aubrey to begin with, she was probably the most irritating and dependent character I’ve come across. Laura and Alec are trained terrorists. Because it took so darn long to get any shred of information, my interest did start to wane towards the end. They don’t seem to have a plan and focus on whatever target is convenient. That is basically all we get as far as world building.
They are then asked to join with the Green Berets and become a fighter against terrorism.
How did the virus work, why were some people effected and not others? The characters were boring, and the plot was not as interesting as I hoped it would be.
People start developing powers, but there are so many people who aren’t aware of their powers, or are even afraid of them. See all 4 questions about Blackout…. So teens that do have powers are not truly as free as those teens that do no have powers. Have your senses heightened to unnatural levels?
Robison Wells plays on so many levels of good vs. Pili October 1st, A really great review, Giselle! Yeah, I know it’s a series. Can someone take him out already?
I suppose this was meant to help accelerate the pacing somewhat, but what it really did was stop me from connecting with any of the characters.
This book has massive potential and it just flopped It would have helped if we had gotten some world building, surely. For my first ever Robison Wells novel, I can say that I am impressed with his cast of characters. Nonetheless, my ultimate favourite character was Jack. The pace and shortage of answers subsided my will to turn the pages altogether. None of the main characters are 18 so you would think wekls parents would be involved, even in a fictional time of war.
Is it a war story? Aylee October 2nd,
