Thrown into solitary confinement for his failed escape attempt from furnace prison, Alex Sawyer struggles not to let the hellish pitch-black silence overwhelm him. Before another escape attempt is even possible, he must first survive the nightmare that now haunts his endless nights. Because the hole doesn't need monsters to do its dirty work not the usual brutes in black suits and their silver-eyed, fleshless hounds, or wheezing freaks with filthy syringes. All it needs is Alex and his own fears, now that he's seen firsthand the terrible fate awaiting him and his mates in Furnace's secret tunnels and labs.

In solitary, Alexander Gordon Smith takes us still deeper into the terrifying underground world of Furnace Penitentiary. Listeners will hurtle from thrill to chill in this rocket-paced prison-break odyssey where nightmares are made.

    " Thrown into solitary confinement for his failed escape attempt from the Furnace prison, Ales Sawyer struggles not to let the hellish pitch-black silence overwhelm him. Before another escape attempt is possible, he must learn to endure the nightmare that now haunts his endless nights Because the hole doesn't need monsters to do it's dirty work-- not the usual blacksuits and the silver-eyed hounds or the wheezers with filthy syringes. it just needs Alex and his own thoughts of fear to drive him insane. Beneath heaven is hell, and beneath hell is Furnace. "

    " I caught a slight case of chills while reading parts of this book. I believe there are unnecessary sections of descriptions and dreams (which I'd find necessary to convey Alex's true state if I weren't so anxious to find out what was next), but aside from that, the story has gotten better, the suspense has been intensified, and Furnace seems to be as scary and gross as Alex's nightmares are. "

    " The first in this series was excellent but I was disappointed in this one. "

    " I had a hard time sympathizing with the characters, and with each event in the book, I seemed to be losing more interest. This book ended up making me feel like I outgrew Young Adult novels. However, I will not write off the genre completely-I might discover a hidden gem- but it was nothing profound or thought-provoking. "

    " this books have such crap covers. they look like books for 8 yr old boys but these books are seriously good. its all about rights and gene modification "

    " I could not put this down, and I think I liked it even more than the first book. The action is just non-stop and the atmosphere as dark and gritty as you can get. The author does use a lot of over-exaggeration, which can be annoying at times. If Alex his something hard enough to "tear out his spine", I'm pretty sure he'd be spineless on the floor. He also spends a lot of time telling us about Alex's emotions rather than simply showing them. Other than that, though, it felt like being on an adrenaline drip, lol. I loved the horror and revolting details. "

    " Wow, what an amazing art. The way Alexander Gordon Smith can keep you intrested throughout the book while Alex is stuck in solitary confienment is incredible. My favorite part is when Alex escapes and puts Donovan down in peace. The author uses phonosemantics (sound symbolism) by creating a language which Alex can use to communicate by tapping on the wall a certian number of times to talk. For example if you tap 8 times then stop and then tap 9 and stop, that would mean hi. (the number of taps represents the order of letters in the alphabet so 1 is a, 2 is b, etc.) In this book I like the character Simon because of his ability to remember his name and stay loyal to who he really was. Overall this book desevres a sincire admiration, and hands down 5 stars. Pick it up now after you read lockdown. "

    " This was an action packed page turner. I am really enjoying this series and cannot wait to see what happens next. "

    " Awesome book! You'd think it'd be boring reading about Alex all by himself in solitary confinement. You'd be very wrong. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/15/2013

    " I felt like this one started off a little slower than Lockdown, but after the character of Simon was introduced, I could not put it down! "

    " This book lived up to its predecessor. I look forward to reading the third! "

    " A great book to follow up the first. Man they were so close. Now on to the third. "

    " Not as good as the first, and not sure if I'll continue the series.... maybe someday. While this was exciting, it started to feel a little repetitive to me. These kids just never catch a break and I'm not willing to spend the time to see if they ever do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Kline | 6/14/2012

    " The second book in the Furnace series does not disappoint. If anything, things are even creepier! Still hard to read this and think that the "prisoners" are children! Definitely ready to get my hands on the next book in the series! "

    " It wasn't as good as the first one, but still way good! Can't wait for the next one! "

    " just as good as the first! I love this series! I cannot wait for the third book to come out. It is such a page turner and i recommend it for anyone who enjoyed 'the hunger games'. I think this series is better though. "
