The storyline proved to be incredibly flimsy but only due to the poor execution by the author. Aubrey had had hers for a few years blackojt had adjusted already, but it was very intriguing to see Jack becoming accustomed to his new powers.
And as for Aubrey, I wrlls a hard time believing her flippy-floppy conversion that took about 10 pages to go from ignoring Jack because she can’t be seen with the likes of him, to being in love with him.
SUCH bad writing at very frequent times. Books by Robison Wells. Sincethe website currently has compiled over recaps for over series.
Even though there was never a dull moment within Blackout, that ending just knocked the book out of the ballpark. They will never know what it is like not to have a camera on every store front where their progress simply walking down a street can simply and quickly be retraced.
This virus is the cause of the enhanced blackoht and only seems to affect teenagers. They will never know robisonn it was blackput not to have an easily tracked cell phone actually, our poorer teens will, but that is an entirely different issue. The writing style is entertaining enough, but the plot meanders and plausibility even for a relatively forgiving reader like me when it comes to world building is not its strong suit.
Robison Wells plays on so many levels of good vs. These relationships add to the daunting twist and turns that he creates along with thrilling shocks that seem to come from all angles haunting the reader.

Still, the perspectives were quite a mouthful to digest and since I was more enticed by Audrey and Jack’s story, therefore I only really anticipated their chapters. That is basically all we get as far as world building. But honestly, do they not have normal human thoughts?
Melissa Harley Bear Book Blog. The characters were flat and lifeless, with no interesting personalities, and their motives didn’t line up with their actions in the slightest.
Can someone take him out already? I really enjoyed the plot and enjoyed the story, I just wish there had been a bit more character development. Acknowledging that they have been brought up as terrorists, I still could not but help feel that they weren’t as clear or genuine compared to Audrey or Jack.
I hope there are more answers in the sequel. Aylee October 2nd, Which is why we need books not only like Fahrenheit andbut books like Blackout by Robison Wells. This book did my lil’ X-Men loving heart good! There was sort of a mini bomb dropped at the end, and I’m really curious to see how it develops in the second book! Approaching the subject this superficially is disrespectful and somewhat insulting. Jack and Aubrey are picked up by the government, along with the rest of the high school students in the US, to be tested for the Erebus virus.

Blaxkout characters were boring, and the I can’t believe the author who wrote Variant and Feedback wrote this. She really cares about doing the right thing.
Like many other books I’ve read in the recent past, Blackout is a character and action driven novel. Blakout was excited for this for a pretty long time and I loved “Going Dark” and I liked this a lot, but I didn’t love it. She’s known to be sarcastic and rarely serious.

The Bloggers Giselle Giselle is a wife and mother who lives on books and coffee – what else is there? Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
And how likely is it that the government would lock up every single teen in the country overnight? It does sound very interesting and good though based off of the blurb. It is the same for Blackout.
It’s rich in it’s fast-paced, tension-filled moments, stunning with its flawlessly contrasted characters, and original with its storyline and welld style. So teens that do have powers are not truly as free as those blackput that do no have powers. See this review and others like it at BadassBookReviews.
In any case, barring someone saying it gets better and actually makes you care, I won’t be coming back for seconds. Some things about the concept didn’t make sense at all, and there were many holes in the plot.
Black Out is a fun read.
