Crown Review #47 - Alive

Alive - Scott Sigler

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Series: The Generations Trilogy, #1
Length: 345 Pages
Purchase: [Amazon] | [Barnes & Noble]

A teenage girl awakens to find herself trapped in a coffin. She has no idea who she is, where she is, or how she got there. Fighting her way free brings little relief—she discovers only a room lined with caskets and a handful of equally mystified survivors. Beyond their room lies a corridor filled with bones and dust, but no people…and no answers.

She knows only one thing about herself—her name, M. Savage, which was engraved on the foot of her coffin—yet she finds herself in charge. She is not the biggest among them, or the boldest, but for some reason the others trust her. Now, if they’re to have any chance, she must get them to trust one another.

Whatever the truth is, she is determined to find it and confront it. If she has to lead, she will make sure they survive. Maybe there's a way out, a rational explanation, and a fighting chance against the dangers to come. Or maybe a reality they cannot comprehend lies just beyond the next turn.
“I was created to be destroyed.” 
If you're reading this review, you should just probably stop and run away in the other direction. I am not saying that this was bad. I am saying that this was good. That is all you need to know, but before you run away in the other direction, take this last piece of advice: Know Nothing. Now you know why you need to run. Just go, pick up the book, and leave this page. The less you know, the better!

I see that you haven't left yet and you want to know more. All I can say is that I'll talk about this book, but I'll try to be strictly non-spoiler. Know Nothing. In the beginning, a girl wakes up in which she calls a "coffin" and finds that her name is M. Savage. After Em quickly gets out of the coffin, she realizes that she has no memories, except for her name and her age. However, everything does not make sense immediately and this is what makes the stories good.

Em and a group of others are in a mysterious building and they have no clue where they are, or what they are even in. Everything has to be solved, and everything is about survival. Know Nothing. As the story progresses, it gets more confusing and more mysterious that you want to know the answer here and now. Once you get towards the end and everything starts to fall into piece, you're not going to believe it because you never saw it coming. I never saw it coming. It plays your mind and you forget to think.

Now, stop reading and leave. I am not to say anymore, reveal any more details. I have said this before, and I will say it one last time. The less you know, the better and know nothing. Just go, and pick up this book.
