Reason for Reading: Next (and last) in the series.
Summary: Janie has been left with a decision to make about her future and concentrates on making that decision. However, a wrench is thrown into her contemplations when her never before known father shows up in ICU causing her alcoholic mother to go off the deep end and add a twist to her previous choice. Now she must decide which is lesser of two evils.
Comments: Right of the bat I'll say this was rather disappointing. For a good portion of the book, from the beginning, the story mostly concentrates on Janie's dealing and coping with her alcoholic mother. Which would have been fine if this was just another teen dysfunctional family novel (which I abhor) but it was supposed to be the final book in a, so far, exciting paranormal trilogy. Janie has become very good at blocking out dreams unless they hit her out of nowhere, so during this part of the book there is barely any semblance of paranormal activity...
I was disappointed with Gone. The ending was good, but there was no definitive climax or moment that made you have to finish the book. About halfway through I stopped and couldn't understand why no conflict or action had happened yet. It wouldn't start for a while. I absolutely loved Wake and Fade. I read them both in two days. They were exciting and romantic. Gone had the romance down, but the excitement was seriously lacking. The entire book was about Janie making one decision. No bad guys, no struggles, just a decision. If written well, that could have been an interesting story, but most of the book was Janie, who, in all the other books, is steadfast and strong, whining and complaining about her life. I would have liked to see her act with the same strength as she usually does. I like the lyrical style of the book, but the cursing is a bit of a turnoff; however, I put up with it in the first two because the story was so exciting. Not so much in Gone. While I like how it...
Ever since she learned the startling and dreadful truth about her abilities to visit other people's dreams, Janie has been horribly conflicted. She's torn between her love for Cabel and the want for companionship and her guilt at being such a hardship for those around her. The way Janie sees it, she has two choices, none of them good, but maybe one will give her some peace. But just when she thinks she's chosen her path, an unexpected person shows up...causing her to rethink everything.
The third and final book in Lisa McMann's Wake trilogy is a quick, engrossing read. Though it lacks the pulse-pounding action of Fade, Gone never lacks for excitement as secrets from the past are unveiled and Janie is forced to confront issues she'd rather bury. Written in third person present tense, Gone has a very realistic air that makes it very easy to become immersed into, even as most of the drama unravels in Janie's own head as she pieces together bits of her past in order to decide...
