READ Plague Contents READ Î KLASS-CHITA.RU Ì Jean Ure Jean Ure Ì 1 SUMMARY Almost overnight a plague has wiped out the population of England The only survivors seem to be three very different te. i don t know if this just happened to have been written before the australian renaissance of really stellar YA lit or if this is just a fluke but this book contains one of the most annoying characters i have read in my life and i have read The Adolescent i had to skim whenever she was on the page because it was altogether too frustrating AND I HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT THE AUTHOR IS NOT IN FACT AUSTRALIAN SO ALL BETS ARE OFF BUT INSTEAD OF CHANGING THAT SENTENCE I AM LETTING IT STAND SO YOU CAN ALL SEE WHAT A DUMMY I AM the basic premise is similar to Tomorrow When the War Began while a group of teens and counselors are deep in the woods living without the comforts of the modern age all hell breaks loose in civilization in the marsden series australia has been taken over by terrorists who put the citizens in prisons and six teens have to figure out what to do with their freedom hide fight or surrender in this book we follow one girl who emerges from the woods to find that london has been uarantined due to a mysterious illness and soldiers will shoot anyone who tries to leave she sneaks through the barriers to get to her family and finds everyone dead except her best friend who has descended into a sort of juvenile madness whose psychological break takes the form of victorian dress wearing and regressing into baby talk and petulance oh dear god so much petulance the one thing i thought i could rely upon in australian YA was the badassery of the characters REMEMBER WHEN I WAS DUMB and even though the action does not take place in australia i thought we were in the clear not so much everything turns into whining and complaining and pouting and singsong rhymes and dancing and just generally acting like a five year old instead of a teenager not that the other characters are much better the two girls do meet up with one other person a boy trying to make his way to his brother after their father finally succumbs to the disease and i would have been okay with him throttling this girl unto death she is an unnecessary loud burden the other girl is this passive overly reflective considering the circumstances peacemaker sister your friend is a lost cause slap her into usefulness or leave her behind stop with the coddling and shahid is no better no one will ever say that this book s strength is in its likable characters apart from them and some oooh government is baaaaad speechifying which to me falls under characterization the rest of it is not at all bad if i had read this in 1989 when it was originally published LOOKING UP THE PUB DATE IS WHEN I FIRST LEARNED WHAT A MORON I AM TO HAVE TRANSPLANTED THIS POOR WOMAN TO A COUNTRY NOT HER OWN TO AN ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT CONTINENT or if i had read it as a younger reader i think it would have stuck with me a lot better there are certain elements that are gratifyingly rough and original in something intended for younger readers especially in one written twenty years ago in a way this book did some really groundbreaking things but also some really annoying things the ending is satisfyingly ambiguous but might frustrate younger readers which is only fair since older readers are going to be frustrated by a lot of other things something for everyone to wince over there are two other books in the series taking place wellll after the events in this book so i am hoping i will enjoy those and i am also hoping that certain aspects of her writing become refined and i am thirdly hoping that next time i will get all my facts straight before i sit down to write my little book reports but don t count on thati stupidbut i don t want any of you people from sparrow s battle royale thread to start cluttering up over here with your nonsense

READ Plague Contents READ Î KLASS-CHITA.RU Ì Jean Ure Jean Ure Ì 1 SUMMARY 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
