My very first post on this blog was about a book series that I fell in love with. That was five years ago. In April, the last book from this series was released. The very last one. I can’t believe that six books later I’m still hooked. It takes talent to be that kind of writer. The kind where you never stop reading their work and when its all done, sadness clouds over you. It’s not easy to let go of something that has been a part of your life for half a decade.
The Gone series by Michael Grant should be more famous and successful than Harry Potter or Twilight. It’s that good.
The series starts with Gone, then Hunger, Lies, Plague, Fear, and finally Light.
I don’t think any of the books are sold in Kuwait. I got all of mine from London. Every year, I would go to a bookstore to buy the next book, but many times, I would find that it was sold out. I would have to order it and wait in agony just to be able to read the book. I’m going to miss that. No more waiting for anything, it’s all over now and as Michael Grant puts it, “its the end game”.
For those of you who have access to ebooks, buy the series or at least the first book. The books are really long, but the English is very simple. It’s at a middle school reading level. So, anyone that can understand my writing will have no trouble reading them.
I’m glad my very first post was about the Gone series. I feel proud of myself because now I truly honor Michael Grant’s work as a writer.
