Kurzbeschreibung

13. August 2013 Life As We Knew It Series (Buch 4)

The eagerly awaited addition to the series begun with the New York Times best-seller Life As We Knew It, in which a meteor knocks the moon off its orbit and the world changes forever.

It's been more than two years since Jon Evans and his family left Pennsylvania, hoping to find a safe place to live, yet Jon remains haunted by the deaths of those he loved. His prowess on a soccer field has guaranteed him a home in a well-protected enclave. But Jon is painfully aware that a missed goal, a careless word, even falling in love, can put his life and the lives of his mother, his sister Miranda, and her husband, Alex, in jeopardy. Can Jon risk doing what is right in a world gone so terribly wrong?

Von Smint
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Das Positive vorweggenommen (die Liste hält sich überschaubar), ich habe die Hörbuchversion des Buchs gekauft und Matthew Josdal macht als Sprecher einen guten Job. Abgesehen von einem zwischendurch etwas störend aufblitzenden (ich glaube kanadischem) Akzent besonders auffällig bei der Aussprache des Wortes "out", ist das Buch angenehm zu hören und die Charaktäre werden mit Leben gefüllt. Zumindest sofern es die Vorlage hergibt.

Zur Geschichte an sich muss im meinem Vorredner recht geben und gehe sogar noch weiter. Shade of the Moon ist die mit Abstand miserabelste Fortsetzung die ich seit langem gesehen (bzw. gehört) habe. Warum?

- Geschichte -

Die Story hat nur ganz entfernt noch mit der ursprünglichen Geschichte der ersten drei Bücher zu tun. Obwohl aus dem zweiten Buch schon bekannt ist, dass die Autorin gerne den Hauptcharakter wechselt, sind Miranda und Alex in diesem Buch zu reinen Nebendarstellern degradiert worden - trotzdem sie gleichwohl vorkommen. John wird schlechterdings zum Dreh- und Angelpunkt der Geschichte, die sich in weiten Teilen damit befasst, das Leben eines bevorzugten, verzogenen Rotzbengels in einer weitestgehend wieder "normalisierten" Welt zu beschreiben.

In Anführungsstrichen deshalb, weil sich eine neue Gesellschaftsordnung herausgebildet hat, die im Grunde eine studpide abgeschriebene Mischung aus Mad Max und Die Tribute von Panem darstellt. "Clavers" vs. "Grubs", die Einen durchweg böse, bevorzugt, elitär. Die Anderen durchweg mißverstanden, unterdrückt, benachteiligt. Und das alles wurde in der Geschichte seit dem letzten Buch, ohne Infrastruktur, in einer Welt im Chaos, landesweit so etabliert.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Kein Vergleich zu den Vorgängern 10. Oktober 2013
Von S. Graf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Auch als Erwachsene hab ich diese Jugendbuch-Serie verschlungen und mich auf Band 4 richtig gefreut.
Jetzt nach dem Lesen bin ich ziemlich enttäuscht, denn irgendwie wirkt die Liebesgeschichte von Jon und Sarah erzwungen und auch die Revolte der "Grubs" erinnern eher an MadMax oder andere Endzeit-Szenarios.
Man hat irgendwie das Gefühl, dass der Autorin keine zündenden Ideen zur Fortführung der einzelnen Charaktere gekommen sind, sondern jetzt alles sehr auf schwarz-weiß gemalt wird. Aus den bekannten Charakteren und auch der Endzeit-Situation hätte man deutlich mehr machen können.
Man muss das Buch nicht gelesen haben - und es muss auch kein weiteres geben.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Unbelievable society weakens fourth "Last Survivors" installment 30. Juni 2013
Von kacunnin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
THE SHADE OF THE MOON is the fourth in Susan Beth Pfeffer's "The Last Survivors" series, which focuses on what happens to the world when an asteroid crashes into the moon, moving its orbit closer to Earth. The first book, LIFE AS WE KNEW IT, was Miranda Evans story of her family's devastating experiences in Pennsylvania, told through journal entries. The second book, THE DEAD AND GONE, focused on Alex Morales and his family in New York City. The third book, THIS WORLD WE LIVE IN, united both families as Miranda and Alex fell in love. Now, with THE SHADE OF THE MOON, the story continues in Tennessee, where Miranda and Alex live in a poverty-stricken town called White Birch and her younger brother Jon lives with their stepmother Lisa and her son Gabe in an "enclave" called Sexton. Billions of people have died in the four years since the asteroid hit the moon, and the world that remains is nothing at all like the one left behind. The story in this fourth installment focuses mainly on Jon's budding romance with Sarah, the daughter of the enclave's new doctor, as well as Jon's struggle to hold onto his safe place in the enclave while not betraying the rest of his family.

Apparently, society has become divided into two distinct classes - the "clavers," who live in the protected, affluent "enclaves," and the "grubs," who do the manual labor and live in "grub towns" like White Birch. Jon, Lisa, and Gabe were lucky enough to get "slips" (passes that enable them to live in an enclave town), but Alex, Miranda, and her mom Laura weren't that lucky - they are "grubs," living lives very different from the one Jon is living. Clavers have access to good food, medical care, nice homes, and education for their children. Grubs work as servants in claver homes, or in the greenhouses where food is grown, or in the mines. Jon is torn between his nice life in Sexton and his mom and sister's squalid existence in White Birch. It doesn't help that Miranda is pregnant and still expected to work ten hours a day in the greenhouses, or that new girl Sarah is a "grub-lover" - she and her doctor father are determined to do whatever they can to make life easier for the disenfranchised, and this is not at all popular with the others in the enclave. If Jon goes along with Sarah, he'll make enemies in Sexton which could risk his and Lisa's chances to remain there. But if he doesn't, he'll lose Sarah.

There are two problems with THE SHADE OF THE MOON, making it a much less successful novel than LIFE AS WE KNEW IT. First, the relationship between Jon and Sarah just isn't developed enough to make it either believable or compelling. He meets her at the start of the book, they have lunch together at school, they sit together on the bus, and then they're trading kisses. There's nothing to explain why they're attracted to each other, much less why they fall "in love" so quickly. Since this relationship is at the heart of everything that happens in the course of the novel, the lack of any real connection between them (or any believable chemistry) is problematic.

The second problem is the society Pfeffer has created in this book - the clear division of society into the clavers (or "haves") and the grubs (or "have-nots") is a bit too over-the-top to be believable. Only four years have passed since the asteroid hit the moon, and all of these characters have clear memories of what life was like before. It makes no sense that things would have devolved so quickly into a hostile environment in which the majority of the remaining population has become virtual slave labor for the privileged few. And it makes even less sense that everyone seems to comfortable with this system. No one objects. No one wants to fight for equality. When Sarah suggests that some of the kids in her class do their required volunteer work at a grub clinic in White Birch, they delight in calling her "grub-lover," one girl spits on her, and they start chanting "grubby, grubby, grubby" while their teacher laughs. Jon and his male friends routinely spend their free time in White Birch getting drunk and having sex with grub girls (who will sleep with anyone for a bar of soap). Grub servants are mistreated and overworked, the grub miners are worked to death, and grub babies are stolen from their mothers and given to infertile claver couples to raise. It's very difficult to believe that such a society could have developed in just four years. And if you can't believe in the society, the story just doesn't work.

The best part of THE SHADE OF THE MOON - the thing that saves it from being a total waste of time - is Jon's character. This is a seventeen-year-old boy who begins, through the course of the novel, to realize just how much of a coward he really is. It may have started with what happened to Julie in the previous book, but it continues in his inability to stand up for Sarah against his friends, or to protect his mother and sister from the clavers who hurt them. Jon is a flawed character, and Pfeffer definitely gets her readers to both identify with him and wonder whether their decisions in such a world would be any different than his. Would any of us risk our cushy, comfortable lives to stand up to injustice? It's the kind of question that young people need to consider.

Unfortunately, this isn't a very successful novel. I loved LIFE AS WE KNEW IT, and I enjoyed elements of the next two books. But I'm not convinced that any of the sequels were really necessary. LIFE AS WE KNEW IT worked because it was a small story, about one girl's experience during a natural disaster. At the end of that novel, Pfeffer affirmed the human spirit and our need for each other. It's very hard to understand how, in just four short years, the human spirit was conquered and greed and hatred took its place. If you've read the other three books and want to know what happens to these characters, then you might want to read this one. But it isn't a book that works well on its own. There will be more books in this series - the ending of THE SHADE OF THE MOON sets up the next installment - but LIFE AS WE KNEW IT really does stand alone. For me, this one didn't work.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Difficult to read. 26. August 2013
Von K. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I had such a hard time with this book. "Life As We Knew It" was hands-down one of the best books I've read, it was so fresh and thought provoking and realistic. It was terrifying and heart-warming, and has stayed with me in the years since I read it. I was 25 when I read it, too, so I was far from a naive impressionable youth. The next two books that came after it were decent enough, but never quite captured the thrill of the first book. When I saw that this 4th installation was coming out I jumped at the chance to read it. At first it was exciting (and a little confusing) catching up with the characters I had come to love... and I quickly realized that this story was a departure from the others. I wish this book hadn't been written. It just ruins the perfection of the original. The society that is built in The Shade of The Moon is difficult to believe, and the character and relational development is sorely lacking. If, like me, you've read the other books and are curious to see what happens to the character you loved, please take my advice and don't get this. JUST SKIP IT. You'll be much happier with how things were at the end of the 3rd book, trust me.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lacks Everything 16. August 2013
Von ElisaChat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have always been a fan of Pfeffer, but I felt like this book was missing everything that made her other books special. Jon and Sarah- I am not quite sure what they see in each other, I am not even sure why they like each other! And I could never believe that America could turn into this... society in only four years. I felt like Jon was completely out of character and he acted like a rowdy teenager, but worse because he totally disrespected his family and betrayed Sarah multiple times. I stopped reading halfway because I felt like the book was going no where, I wanted to hear more about Miranda and Alex in this book, the last character I wanted to read about was selfish Jon.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Readergirl Reviews a Teen Book 15. August 2013
Von Readergirl Reviews a Teen Book - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to admit from the outset that this book just didn't do it for me as the others in the series. There was an immediate danger, suspense and poignancy about the other books that was just missing from this one. I actually had a problem getting into the book almost immediately. It just didn't hold my attention very well. At first, things were kind of confusing, and then what was happening just wasn't all that interesting at first.

I also had some problems with the characters and their connection. Jon, now living in an enclave while his family lives on the outskirts as the less desirable "grubs", just doesn't immediately seem like a likeable character. He seems to go along with whatever his friends wants, and although the author did offer the excuse for his actions that he shouldn't make waves because it might hurt his stepmother, it just wasn't enough to justify some of his actions. Although I liked Sarah, like Jon, there was just a lack of development. Their romance together was a little under-developed also, and due to some of his actions, I was surprised that Sarah even loved him.

The new society and its structure just didn't make any sense to me. It doesn't make sense that a natural disaster that nearly destroyed the world would later cause the survivors to go back to the 1800s to create a society of segregation.

All in all, I was pretty disappointed with this story and I can't really point to much that I enjoyed about it unfortunately. I love the author, love her writing, but this story didn't do it for me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Shade of the Moon (YA) 6. Juli 2013

Book #57 Read in 2013
The Shade of the Moon (YA) by Susan Beth Pfeffer

This is the fourth book in the series that began with the book Life as We Knew It. I loved the first two books in this series and the third one was good. I did not know until recently that a fourth book was coming out, so when I had a chance to grab it to review, I had to get a copy.

In this book, two years have passed since book 3. Jon is living with his stepmother Lisa and his half brother Gabe in a better town than White Birch--where his mother, sister Miranda and brother in law Alex are still living in poverty. Jon has food to eat, clean air to breathe and attends a decent school. He has begun to take this all for granted until he meets Sarah, the new girl, who questions why everyone should not have these things. Jon and Sarah fall for each other but he has to be careful that he doesn't break the rules by taking her side. During the book, Jon realizes what the true priorities are but that does not happen without great cost.

I enjoyed this installment in the series. This book bounced the series back in my estimation. It had action, romance, and a plot that kept me riveted from start to finish. The ending leaves enough of an opening that a book five could happen....and I hope it does.

I received this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a review.
