Overview

Manhattan, XXIe siècle. Un virus a décimé toute la population des États-Unis, à l’exception des adolescents. Plus d’électricité, plus d’eau courante, plus de transports, plus d’Internet, les jeunes sont livrés à eux-mêmes dans la ville qui ne dort jamais. L’Upper East Side est devenu le territoire des Résidentiels, tribu violente et machiste qui domine le marché noir. Dans le Village, plusieurs tribus coexistent plus ou moins pacifiquement. Parmi eux, les Washington Square. Il y a Donna, Jeff, Peter, Brainbox et Opaline. Cinq ados privés de repères qui ont vu leur avenir se désintégrer sous leurs yeux.
Lassés d’attendre la mort, ils partent à travers Manhattan pour tenter de retrouver l’origine du virus qui a décimé le continent.
Relecture moderne de Sa Majesté des mouchesThe Young World happe le lecteur dès les premières pages grâce à des personnages bien campés et des rebondissements en chaîne.
 
Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Sébastien Guillot

This book started off with a "decent" beginning.  If I were to give a letter grade, it would be a solid "B" for the start of the book.  It was clear that it was not going to be groundbreaking and original, however, it was interesting enough to make me want to continue reading.  But, then it went downhill. The middle of the book deserves a "C-".  There were plenty of questions posed throughout the journey and for that I cannot complain much about the "meat" of the book.  Again, it wasn't original, but I was somewhat excited about where this tale might end up. Then, the ending came.  What a complete disappointment.  It gets a "F-".... if there were any lower letter grades to give, this book would get it.  It was as though the author set a timer and when it went off he had to end the book with the next line.  The ending was pointless and answered NONE of the questions brought about through the journey.  It didn't fit the story at all.  In fact, the ending of this book was so strange and unreasonable that it makes me want to go back to the middle section of the book and change it's rating to a "D" because the whole story was pointless. My personal advice is that if you want to read this book, check it out at the library.  Don't waste your money on it because it won't be a book you want to re-read.  And don't expect any "moral to the story" or any "point" to the story.  You'll be very disappointed.
