[The Annihilation of Foreverland] by [Tony Bertauski] is a wild ride with lots of plot twists and action. The premise of using a technology to tap into others minds and youth has been explored before but this was a new and creative take on it. It was almost like a modern [Lord of the Flies] with a tech twist. ( )

If it were a stand-alone, not at all bad, though I did see the twist without very much trouble and body-swapping is becoming a bit stale as a sci-fi theme. As a trilogy, though, I think it's going to get laborious and I don't plan on reading the subsequent two books. ( )

I got this book for free, in exchange for an honest review from Making Connections. Get your copy here.

the cover is beautiful

the beginning-creepy and unsettling- sets the right mood for the book

there is never a boring moment

the sense of creepiness throughout the book could be clearly felt and the scenes of the ordeal that the boys had to go through to reach Foreverland were my favorite.

I pretty much guessed what was going on halfway through the book-this was due to the fact that the target audience for this book is young adults.

the whole issue about who Lucinda was and whether it was “possible” was on shaky ground. Maybe it just needed to be explained further.

My favorite character was the sidekick because of the strength he shows in coming back & helping Danny Boy.

This is a really good YA novel-fans of the genre should give it a try.

Although it was disturbing and even horrific at times, this novel was captivating and well-written. You cannot help but hope the main characters will realize what is truly happening and that they will find a way out of the situation. Overall, this was an incredibly creative sci-fi thriller! ( )

The story is told through multiple characters. The boys wake up on an island in the South Atlantic Ocean a Tropical paradise where they can do whatever they want fish, play video games, roam they can do anything except leave. They are watched over by an elderly man know as an investor every couple of weeks the boys are sent to the haystack that is the gateway to Forever land. Where every dream impossible or not can come true but not with out a price. The Director and the investors vary from caring and kindly to creepy and cruel. The horror and suspense grows. The story line is unique. I highly recommend if you enjoy stories about technology, money and power. ( )
