Der erste Teil dieser Fortsetzung war sehr interessant. Es sind die bekannten Charaktere vorgekommen die Markierten sind nicht vergessen worden und es schließt perfekt an die leider zu ende gegangene Serie an. Für Fans der Fernsehserie die kein Problem damit haben auf Englisch zu lesen ist dieses Buch sehr zu empfehlen.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Waste of time. Poorly written. 15. Mai 2016
Von Bones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I can't even get half way through this book.

For starters, the character Diana Skouris just isn't right. Her dialog is wrong. Her interactions with her daughter don't fit the character. And some of her interactions with other characters are just too simple and unrefined, in comparison to the Diana developed in the TV series.

Nearly any character new to the story line and introduced by the author is so one-dimensional, stereotypical, and undeveloped that they're out of place and somewhat jarring to bring in to the story (and not in a good way). And when they speak, it just gets worse. It seems that if the author can't base dialogue on lines from the TV series, that he reverts to some strange, twisted rendition of something you'd read in a 1950s dime-store 'Whodunnit'.
Terrible, terrible writing.

Plus...
There are so many technical inaccuracies that it pulls me right out of the story every time I read one.
Statements about how guns operate or are manipulated by the characters are wrong. The feasibility of some of the improvised weapons is complete fantasy and unrealistic. Many of the chemical or biological explanations are so far from correct as to feel like sarcastic, comedic attacks on the reader.

There's also the predictable and constant back-and-forth between a couple of parallel story lines. It gets old very quickly.
And, rather annoyingly, there are dozens, if not hundreds of lines of dialogue that range from re-interpretations of, to VERBATIM repetitions of lines from the show.

I generally try to make sure books live on to be read by as many people as possible, or I at least trade them it at a used book store, if I don't keep it in my own library. This one, however, won't be finished by me and won't have a chance for anyone else to waste their time with it. I think I'm going to find the closest "glaucoma patient", so they can use this book for rolling papers...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good representation of the show 14. Februar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I recently finished watching the show on Netflix and knew that it was cancelled. Too bad because it was a pretty good show. Well this book picks up right where the show left off. If you are looking to extend your experience with the show with the continuing story this is definitely it. And like the show,, this book opens up as many new questions as are answered! :)

The book itself reads easy, and has good pacing. The author does a great job of capturing the essence of the characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen TOO EXPENSIVE! 14. Oktober 2015
Von Jennifer Shaffer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I watched The 4400 series on Netflix and wanted to see how the story would end! Since the series was cancelled without an ending, this book is a great way to see where the story might go. The author does a good job of continuing the story and the characters are believable. But, ultimately I found myself frustrated by the high cost of following this story. At the time I bought this book, it was only available in paperback for $20. And, of course, there is another book following this one which would be another $20. I decided not to get the second book, so I still don't have an ending for the story!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Read For a Rainy Weekend 15. November 2015
Von L. Bishop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a direct contiuation of the final episode of The 4400 television show. The novel is set in badly damaged Seattle in the months after a strange plague kills several thousand Seattle residents. It's a pretty wild ride continuing the lives of the major characters we got to know from the series.

My only complaint is how Cox, the author had to stick with the geographical errors from the show. The last season of the show and the novel place "Promise City" on the Duwamish River Delta - a polluted waterway. Picky, picky, I know that's what you're thinking. There is no Duwamish River Delta in Seattle! The Duwamish has been a very polluted river and is still being cleaned up after over ten years of work. The writers of the show got that more or less correct, and Greg Cox, a native of Western Washington had to stick with the error.

But, if you're in Peoria or elsewhere the geographical errors in the the 4400 novels will slip right past you.

The 4400 novels are a wonderful way to reconnect with your favorite characters from the show for a rainy, yucky weekend read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good read for a 4400 fan. 19. Februar 2016
Von Coffee_Shoppe_Life - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I know many have said negative things about this book, I (also a die hard fan of the 4400) loved it. It picks up right were the series ends. It does tie up a few loose ends and questions that you may have had in your mind, and dives into another plot twist. The characters stay true to the series, and the book is wrapped up well... in such a way that you could walk away from it... or let you wanting to read the next chapter. The book is easy to read, I read it in a day (my relaxing day). I just wish the next book "Broken Promises" wasn't so expensive!
