Listener Opinions

    " This book is kind of a toned down version of Lord of the Flies. A bioengineered plague is let loose and only children survive. The particular group of children were at a fun park when the plague hits. The story is about how the kid organize themselves and move on after their parents and older siblings all die. It is an interesting idea for a story. I enjoyed the descriptions of the fun park. Overall I thought that the story line was a little lacking in some places, but overall a good read. "

    " another one of those depressing end of the world books ive been reading....not as depressing as the dead and gone though "

    " I read this years ago, probably fifth or sixth grade (I'm in high school now) and before I had heard of either Lord of the Flies or Animal Farm. I was enthralled by this particular book, because I hadn't ever read anything like it. I still remember it very clearly, when most of everything else i read around that age is a vague blur, so I'm taking it as a good sign. I want to read it again, to see how I feel about it now. "

    " It's okay. I haven't gotten very far into it yet, but it seems like a good read. "

    " Lord of the Flies on a much larger scale. I was vaguely disturbed by this book, but I still managed to enjoy it. I think Josabry might find it interesting. "

    " an adventure that will take your breath away "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Nuri | 10/10/2013

    " A captivating and eye-opening story. Trully shows the depths of humanity--both good and bad--through the eyes of young adults. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 1/15/2013

    " While this is a book aimed at a young adult audience I really enjoyed it. Maybe I'm going into my second, third, fourth... childhood. The story drew me in. The characters were well developed. and the action moved the story along. Kudos to Ms. Dobkin. "

    " This is so much like Gone (with more than a little Kingdom Keepers thrown in) that it's just a disappointing re-read. This time, it's a plague that wipes out the adults, but the same tired plot is being recycled. I have no idea why this particular genre is getting play, but please, enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Talia | 12/7/2012

    " This was a little Lord-of-the-Flies-esque. Things always seem fun in the beginning with no rules, but then things fall apart. Interesting take on a kid-ruled world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 10/19/2012

    " I was impressed by Neptune's Children. At first blush, it looked to be merely an updating of Lord of the Flies; and perhaps it is. But I enjoyed this one infinitely more than William Golding's work. "

    " A bit spooky,scary all the same it was a really good book "

    " I would have rated this a 3 1/2 if I could have. Interesting premise and plot, but too much swearing. "

    " Entertaining and creative, if very predictable. Definitely a wonderful read for younger readers. "

    " awesome...beginning is sad though. NO THIS WILL CONTAIN NO SPOILERS but can I say that it tacks a big twist? I didn't even see it coming. But everything made sense and I wondered why I didn't notice it before. So my advice to you is: READ THIS BOOK but expect the unexpected "

    " It was intence. After reading this book i kept think about what i would do in different situations if this happend to me. Hopefully it won't but it never hurts to just think about it. Totally worth reading. "

    " I am not crazy about the reader's voices she uses for each person. I think I might have preferred a male voice, all that aside it was a good little story. "
