» Blackout by Robison Wells

I don’t feel like they are attacking the government for a reason or to try to make things better, it just seems like children using their newfound super powers to throw tantrums.

Candace October 1st, Jack was the saving grace of this, because it sure as hell wasn’t Laura or Alec or even Aubrey, who I did warm up to microscopically robjson she stopped being totally stupid.

A Library Journal Movers and Shaker: Asti Oh, The Books! The story sounds interesting, yet at the same time forgettable. In short, she’ll read anything. Aubrey and Jack prepare glackout use their powers to help a Green Beret unit, but not even the military is certain who the real enemy is. I robixon the idea of it all was creative and exciting. Like many other books I’ve read in the recent past, Blackout is a character and action driven novel. What are they trying to terrorise, while some welks were hinting throughout, this lack of world building let down not only my enjoyment towards the characters but also to my overall attention to this book.


My expectations were really high because I really liked Variant and Feedback. This one was a lot better than I remembered!

But none of this affected how much i enjoyed this book. Blackout robispn, in a sense, is the coming together of four very unlikely people and the circumstances that bring them together. The ending blcakout in more way than one, and Wells makes it really obvious that the tale isn’t over. Other books in the series. The lack of world-building and character-development here made me a bit ambivalent to the story and the writing, so I can’t quite I’d recommended this.

She kind of ditched her old friends in order to climb the social ladder in high school, and she now uses her powers of invisibility to shoplift because she’s really poor, so she uses it to steal school supplies, medicine, etc.

I’m not going ribison give this the benefit of a great and well thought out review stating all the problems as this novel didn’t even give me an enjoyable read to begin with. I didn’t really get the point of this book.

It would have helped if we had gotten some world building, surely. And the blackmail did in no way require Aubrey to treat Jack like he didn’t exist. We strictly concentrate on these character’s lives and present thoughts which gives us a very narrow view of everything. Mar 15, Jessica rated it it was amazing Shelves: It look so good too.

Review: Blackout by Robison Wells

Sep 20, Once Upon a Twilight rated it it was amazing Shelves: Also I have to say is I didn’t like the ending. Canadian blogger, wife, mother, coffee lover, and sarcastic at heart!

The chapters are short, the sentences shorter, and the vocabulary wouldn’t be a stretch for most junior high students.

Enhanced memory and comprehension. They are supposedly terrorists, but terrorists always have strong robkson that make sense to them, if not to us. For my first ever Robison Wells novel, I can say that I am impressed with his cast of characters. I didn’t connect with them or understand why they were doing what they were doing.

Is it a sci-fi genetic engineering story? That robisson basically all we get as far as world building.

The characters were boring, and the plot was not as interesting as I hoped it would be. The whole thing was just dull and unremarkable.
