At one point in your life you’ll ask yourself “What’s going to happen when I die?” The Everlost series answers that and more. The series is riveting and has a lot of great qualities. The characters are deep and complex, while the books have a complex plot that is filled with twists and turns. Whenever you finish a book in the series, it leaves you wanting more.
The characters, Allie and Nick, are complex and have both good and bad traits. Allie is a 14 year old girl who is rebellious, caring, loving, and doesn’t fear anything. Nick is a 15 year old boy who is caring, responsible, and always has hope. The antagonist of the book is Mary Hightower who cares for all “Afterlights,” the people who live in Everlost. She is power hungry and will do anything to keep her Afterlights safe. She is forgiving, honest, sly, and smart. There are many minor characters that are only in this one book of the series such as Leif. A boy who lives in a dead forest that passed into Everlost and keeps people safe and keeps them from sinking into the bottom of the Earth.
The book has an amazing plot. The plot is very good because the book sets you in a surreal world between life and death called the Everlost. The concept is a very odd concept and hard to pull off well and the author wrote the book very well. The book is great you keep wanting to read it. Once you finish one book in the series, you keep wanting to read more. The book is a fictional book about what happens once you die, a good idea for the book. It ventures into what most people don’t even think about. After the series is over, no questions are left unanswered. Neal Shusterman does a good job of making a complete plot line that makes you feel like you are in the book
I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to reading more of the series. The book has a great idea and is done well. I really enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. I have to rate this book a 9 out of 10. The book has a great storyline that leaves you not fulfilled until you read the next book, great characters that live and breathe like real people. Neal Shusterman makes a great novel that I truly enjoyed.
