Overview

Anyone? by Angela Scott

#1 BESTSELLER at Several Sites!

The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….

…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.

Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother.

Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.

But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed to do if he never comes back?

[Young Adult, Apocalyptic, Survival, Horror]

"Wow. I hope there is another book. I read this book on the advice of a friend’s daughter. I didn’t expect much from the story but found myself blown away at each turn and twist of the story. There has to be a sequel; there must be. This is too good a story to let lie in just one book. I rank this up there with the 'Hunger Games' and 'Divergent.'" ~ Paradox Tremors

This was one of those sleeper reads that really sneaks up on a girl.  I went in expecting a decent read.  After all, it had received good feedback already and the premise sounded interesting enough.  What I got was a WHOLE lot more.   Tess is just an ordinary girl thrust into an extraordinary situation. After tossing Tess in the bunker, her Dad skips town to save her brother with his word he'll return and a promise from her to stay put.  Tess is the dutiful child and does as told but when things start to breakdown and the hours turn to days turn to weeks, what's she expected to do?  Simply sit there while who knows what happens out there and wilt away by her lonesome?  Eh, WRONG!  She has too much hutzpah for that but perhaps more importantly a desire to LIVE.   Personally, I loved Tess' character, even if she was conflicted, indecisive, and whiny at times; she's a teenager for crying out loud.  There is also that end of the world thing, so who wouldn't be?  She toughs out the hard times and holds on to hope when most would have fallen flat.  Her boundaries are tested in more ways than one but in the end, she's admirable and I love her for her genuine nature.  Now, as for the others, or should I simply narrow it down to Cole...he is a quandary.  I must admit I wondered if there was something more to him after the tattoo was discovered.  He was strange but a good egg as they say and I'd definitely rather have his odd snarky self with me on a trip through the aftermath than be on my own.   In conclusion, a WONDERFUL read that I'd recommend to Young Adult fans of all ages without a doubt.   **review copy received in exchange for my honest review...full post can be seen on my site**

This was a great book, had a few unanswered questions but over all was awesome! Have enjoyed a lot of her other books as well. ****spoiler would have liked to explain where more of the bodies were, & y there was the body of the teacher there, but no others.

Was not well written- which is ok if there's a good, imaginative story behind it. This one led nowhere and teased at explanations regarding the events that never came. Honestly, I'll never read anything by this author again.

The story took me right along with it. I did *not* want to put it down. I finished it and I am ready for more!

This is a book I was not asked to review but I felt I needed to write a review because it is right up at the top of my best books ever.  I usually delete each book after I read them; however, this one will be saved in my nook with, so far, only 3 others.  I can't say enough good things about this book.  It was excellent!  Excellent characters, excellent story!  I loved it!  I hated putting it down and I couldn't wait to pick it back up!  Definitely recommend reading "Anyone?" to anyone and everyone!!!!

I am only disappointed about one thing... and that is that I have to wait until next year to read the next book! After reading many post-apocalyptic books, I expected another "fluff" book. What I got was a story that I couldn't put down. Well done!

Anyone? starts out a little slow and with little action first - understandably so since Tess remains in their underground shelter for quite some time. The suspense starts out when Tess finally decides to finally get out of the shelter and find her dad and brother (or maybe a little before that). I may have wanted to put down the book at this point but only because I didn't want to imagine myself post apocalypse, when everyone else has disappeared - except me. However, I was just intrigued about how the book will carry out. Will Tess be able to make it? How will she make it out, when she's all alone? Of course, there are a few elements of surprise in the book that makes it even more intriguing and also suspenseful. I love how the story builds up and how it eventually ends. Although I felt that things may have ended a little too abruptly. I did want some closure in some things because it felt like there was still so much to explain right there. It was probably for the best though. The question remains in your head and it is up to you, the reader, to find an answer to that. I'm pretty sure you'll like the ending, too, although you will probably get confused at the middle of the story on which one is reality and which one is not. But that was actually the beauty of it. I highly recommend this book to fans of post-apocalyptic stories! Disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book, through Reading Addiction Virtual Book Tours,  in exchange for an honest review.

I am a big fan of Angela Scott, and have been since I read her first book Desert Rice. I always get excited when she has a new book come out. This one did not disappoint. Can you imagine being thrust underground, into the fortress your crazy father insisted would one day be necessary? To find out that he is right? We make fun of those people all the time. But maybe they know something that we don't? I felt claustrophobic as I was reading about Tess's time underground, as if I were down there with her. I can't imagine being stuck down there, yet Scott described it well. You lose time, just as she does. You feel lazy and stir-crazy at the same time. When she finally decides to see what is going on, you also feel apprehensive, yet curious. I found myself wondering what I would do in a similar situation. As Tess embarks upon her adventure and search for anyone else on the Earth, you will find yourself wondering what is real and what is not, just as she does. The answers are not clear. In fact, you may never get all of the answers you seek. This was a different kind of dystopian novel for me, and I appreciated that. I could not put this book down while I was reading it. I had to devour it in one sitting. In fact, I was highly disappointed when it ended. I felt like it should have gone on a bit longer. I want, no need, to know what is going to happen next.  I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I just finished reading this book and I'm still trying to wrap my brain around much of it.  Set in modern times, a catastrophic event has occurred, leaving the world as we know it in an apocalyptic chain reaction of many incredible and unexplained incidents.  From the onset of the major event until a few months afterwards, Tess was holed up in a shelter made by her prepper father.  The majority of the book is about her getting to her father, several miles away, with the assistance of a stranger she meets along the way, Cole. I pretty much figured out who Cole was from the start, but the reader never gets a definitive answer on it.  There are many other things that are left with loose ends that makes me wonder if there is going to be a followup book to this one.  If there isn't, than as a reader, I feel very slighted.  Cole is quite the free spirit but he also provides the comic relief needed when times are so tough that you need to lose focus for fear of losing oneself.  Tess, while butting heads with Cole most of the time, is every bit the seventeen year old she should be. The author provides us a world that 99.9% of the population has disappeared by the time Tess comes out of the shelter.  No animals are around other than her cat which she had taken into the shelter with her.  There are not even birds to be heard.  What has happened to all the people?  Where are all the animals?  What are the crazy weather patterns being experienced?  So many questions with some being answered while others never really touched on. A good book in this day and age where preppers even have their own show, personal faith is being questioned and teens have a more direct say about things that effect them.  This book shows the survival skills a person needs to overcome obstacles and that apocalyptic events are not always man made.  I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good what if book.
