Book: Quarantine: The Saints
Series: (Quarantine #2)
Author: Lex Thomas

Nothing was worse than being locked in—until they opened the door...
McKinley High has been a battle ground for eighteen months since a virus outbreak led to a military quarantine of the school. When the doors finally open, Will and Lucy will think their nightmare is finished. But they are gravely mistaken.
As a new group of teens enters the school and gains popularity, Will and Lucy join new gangs. An epic party on the quad full of real food and drinks, where kids hookup and actually interact with members of other gangs seemed to signal a new, easier existence. Soom after though, the world inside McKinley takes a startling turn for the worse, and Will and Lucy will have to fight harder than ever to survive.

It took me two days to read this (because i had to sleep and live or I would have read it faster). I finish it and i realize that: this is by far the most shallow book i'v ever read!

Don't get me wrong there is a lot of action and the pace is pretty decent so it keeps you reading and it's a fine book, it is! But personally I found it unnecessary brutal.
- Every single character is either chauvinist or feminist.
- Everyone is labeled (Slut, Geek, Nerd, Freak...) and discriminated because of it and their behavior just made me cringe around the book.
- I didn't relate to anyone so i can make excuses for him/her and for that matter I found the secondary characters more explored (in psych and background story) than the MCs.
[for example i know that Hillary's mother hated her, but i have no idea what Will and David family is like or Lucy's]

I might have had a better experience if i fell in love with one of the MCs but truth be told i hated them all (Lucy the most, Will the least) more then the "villains".

So if you are looking for mindless action this is a fun read for you. My advise is: don't thing too much about the physics of it all and enjoy the ups and downs of everyday life in McKinley High.
