The Evolution of Technology lOu would want to play it You get to walk around in cities doing ordinary things Yay All in all this was a fairly competent attempt to hold my attention Each of the ideas in the book could have been a central element in its own book or even series This is not a point in its favor though Every individual element in it has been done before and done better by other books and series even that of a story that takes place partially in an MMORPG It is not painful to read most of the time but I feelike all the ideas floating around crammed out things Objective PET Students Book with Answers [With CDROM] like story and characters with depth than a puddle in the middle of the Australian desert Doomed is a kick butt awesome young adult novel Iove the three main characters Doomed is told from Pandora s point of view but the two gorgeous *stepbrothers Theo and Eli are right by Pandora s side to protect her and help her save the world *Theo and Eli are right by Pandora s side to protect her

Ut them together in order to BEAT THE GAMEMy one criticism is with the game itself It s written exactly Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, like realife with characters talking touching each other and just acting as they would in the real world I felt The Mommy Makeover like it wasn t a very realistic representation of a game which isimited to keyboard and mouse movements I mean surely there isn t a keyboard command for Put hand on other character s The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives lower back andean in to speak but that s exactly the kind of thing that went on all the time Even though it wasn t very realistic at all it didn t bother me I got so immersed in the game that I mostly just pretended that it wasn t a game and that it was actually happening Then it stopped bothering meThis book is just so uniue on so many different A River of Royal Blood (Untitled, levels I was screaming and suealing with complete and utter joy and awe as I was reading itThe gaming AWESOMEThe main character HILARIOUSThe circumstances DEVASTATINGThe sexual tension HOTThe action scenes INTENSEDoomed called to the total nerd inside of me and did not disappoint me in the slightest until it ended I wanted I NEEDED I am fully prepared to start stalking Tracy Deebs on her Doomed book tour in January It s just THAT good I am not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination but I could easily envision my nephews and nieces getting trapped in this way Ioved the real world overlapping with the game and the mythological monsters found inside it I wouldn t mind a get away car trip with those boys They seem to have it all under control which is something I d reall The entire modern world is useless when every modern convenience has been turned inside out Our main character has family issues especially with her non existent father and when he sends her a birthday present that she opens on her computer she realizes it s not just photos that she s seeing it s a worm that has worked its way into the Internet that disables all technology Mass chaos ensues and if Pandora wants to save the world she has to play by the rules Beat the game and save the worldAs far as science fiction novels go I wanted to First Blood love this novel It screamed favourite to me when I read the description I m sad to say it wasn t what I expected I couldn t actually believe the world would go crazy after only 7 days of no technology It just seemed way too unrealistic Also I couldn t help but giggle when the characters would be in mortal dang Really 15 StarsTo see full review click here I received a free ARC of this book from Netgalley This has not affect my view of the book Doomed will be available for purchas Pandora is justike any other teen hooked to the Internet and spending way too much time on her aptop Her mum is barely around often than not on a business trip somewhere and she hasn t seen or heard from her dad in years That is until her What can I SAY ABOUT DOOMED OH YEAH THAT about Doomed Oh yeah that was freaking amazing The world that Tracy Deebs has thrown us into is a new and exciting one One where it is half a video game and half a real ife story but it is sometimes hard to tell the difference I really Men And Gods In Mongolia loved what Tracy put these characters through and all the twist and turns of the storyCover So I had the cover where it was actual people on it and I reallyoved that one It captured the story and showed the technological aspect of it too The new cover which I have no idea which one they will end up using is a power button with the shadow of a finger and that one kind of creeps me out in some unknown way Plot WritingThe writing was amazing as always She put us through so many twists and turns almost seamlessly and you never stopped guessing She really integrated the story of Pandora s Box really well and the use of what every kid has now some type or form of technology and what would happen if it suddenly died out That was a concept that was foreign to me and now with Doomed and the TV show Revolution it has been explored in different ways and both ways are very interesting to read and watchCharactersPandora was a very interesting character to say the Hunter Killer (Pike Logan least She was very driven and well due to her namesake curious She went on this adventure without knowing what the outcome would be and well it was interesting to see where it took her Pandora was one of those girls that you eitheroved or hated because of her personality and I Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards, loved her She risked herife for this and she was brave Really really braveWhere did these boys come from Theo and Eli amazing That is all I can say about them For a while I thought they were some kind of god because it was a story about Pandora s Box and I wanted them to be gods but sadly they weren t They were just normal teenage boys with a really good sense of survival I had no idea how they managed all the things they pulled off in *The Book But The Somehow Did And *book but the somehow did and it was amazing I have no idea where they got these talents and they made them perfect Oh and Team Theo all the wayAll in AllI ove Tracy Deebs writing and stories and Doomed was no exception to the amazingness that is her story telling Doomed is reality meets cyber space and everything in between Pick up Doomed and you will not be sorry BLECH. Ers Eli and Theo Pandora must follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father and rescue the world Part The Matrix part retelling of the Pandora myth Doomed has something for gaming fans dystopian fans and romance fans ali.
