Want to go Private? product reviews

Abby and Luke chat online. They've never met. But they are going to. Soon.

Abby is starting high school--it should be exciting, so why doesn't she care? Everyone tells her to "make an effort," but why can't she just be herself? Abby quickly feels like she's losing a grip on her once-happy life. The only thing she cares about any more is talking to Luke, a guy she met on-line, who understands. It feels dangerous and yet good to chat with Luke--he is her secret, and she's his. Then Luke asks her to meet him, and she does. But Luke isn't who he says he is. When Abby goes missing, everyone is left to put together the pieces. If they don't, they'll never see Abby again.

I was intrigued about this book, especially with the prevalence of the internet in our life and just how many different chat sites there are out there.

This isn't proving to be an easy review to write, though one hopes once I start writing I can get the words out. The book isn't the best thing that I've ever read, there's nothing compelling about any of the characters and the writing is only so good enough as to have me turning the page so I can get to the end rather than actually enjoying the book, so had I bought this or borrowed it I wouldn't have bothered finishing it.

The story is a good one, and does well at showing the risks of on-line predators and also gives you a good insight into the mind of a young teenager and just how scarily easy it is to have a person believe a predator and fall for the tricks. Whilst I didn't enjoy this I would suggest it be a must read at high schools as Abby is the type of person no one expects to get sucked in, but it can happen to anyone, no matter where your station in life ie. most popular, smart, nerd etc.

The idea behind this book is a good one, but it just wasn't a compelling or well written story.

Product reviews for listing 3387: Death Cure
Written by: James Dashner

Product image for Death CureThomas knows that WICKED can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. To complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare.

What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they ... more...
