Noooo, that was just a big chunk of time where I read part of it. I think like a hundred pages. My Kindle doesn't have pages so I'm not really sure about that though.
Title: Re: Zeroes

I haven't read Zeroes he, but I read the front and back covers at a bookstore today, and it kinda reminds me of Midnighters.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 13, 2015, 12:32:16 AM
It's not so much like Midnighters past the very basic premise of teenagers with superpowers.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Eraisuithiel on October 14, 2015, 05:13:46 AM
So I'm barely 30 pages in and I'm already hooked
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on October 14, 2015, 08:40:09 AM
Yes O^O

I am having a surprising amount of trouble doing my book report on this. I get 3-4 minutes to talk about the author, characterization, setting, plot, and theme. Which would be fine if there was only one author and only one or two main characters, but noooo, I have to spend like ten seconds trying to sum up each character but they just have so much more than ten seconds' worth of awesomeness D:
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Chairlegs on October 21, 2015, 06:01:50 PM
Very recently I went into a store and in the book section was a fresh Zeros laid out like it was waiting there for me
only 13 dollars
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on November 03, 2015, 01:47:10 PM
I was finally able to get Zeroes from the library yesterday!  :D
I've read the first 25 chapters, it reminds me of Midnighters.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: kristina-la on November 11, 2015, 07:28:22 AM
I am finally finished it! that took me so long :P my attention span is crap now
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on November 17, 2015, 02:32:08 PM
I just finished the book today.

It was better than I thought it would be.

I hope the sequels are just as good!

Why isn't anyone else posting about this?
It just came out. ???
Title: Re: Zeroes

I haven't had time to read it ;-; Maybe other people are in the same situation
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on November 17, 2015, 03:15:25 PM
I finished it and have been waiting for other people to finish it. I'm really, really hoping the sequels talk about Nate more. Because Nate kind of scared me.

Nate was scary.
Westerfeld is getting better at writing morally gray characters. I like it.
Title: Re: Zeroes

I like it a lot O^O
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: kristina-la on November 21, 2015, 04:22:19 AM
Nate is such a troubling character :P He has this admiral trait of doing anything to save his friends but at the same time...he just wants them around to boost his power. He is a psycho dictator in the making!

So I think Anon is my favourite character; then Ethan; then Flicker.


Anyone else find themselves shipping Anon and Ethan for a while there? :P
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on November 21, 2015, 07:06:49 AM
I agree 100% with everything you just said XD Honestly, I still kind of ship Anon and Ethan ._.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: kristina-la on November 21, 2015, 06:45:16 PM
I think I more jokingly shipped them :P It's just a funny bromance.

Anon (I can't for the life of me remember his name...) and Flicker are so cute together though so I'm totally okay with it :P
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on November 22, 2015, 02:45:59 AM
His name's Thibault. I kind of wonder if people would forget it less if it was something easier to remember normally :P
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: kristina-la on November 22, 2015, 04:35:29 AM
probably the point :P I'm just amused that I even forgot him name.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: ShadowLiberal on February 20, 2016, 01:23:41 PM
I just finished the story last night.

It was such a great book, I'd love to read a sequel to it.

I absolutely loved Ethan, him and his power were great at creating a lot of drama.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on February 20, 2016, 01:27:55 PM
I think there will be a sequel In the next year or so?

Also. I have noticed that you guys don't like bellwether coz of his power...
But when i look at crash, she kinda looks like she is going to burn the whole city to the ground.
She is the one i am scared of
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on March 09, 2016, 01:34:14 AM
I don't like Bellwether because of how he uses his power. Using charisma to manipulate has always creeped me out e-e
Title: Re: Zeroes

All of their powers have really awful drawbacks. That's a major point the story makes.

Amazon (the one in Seattle) sends cardboard boxes (made of trees) across oceans in airplanes. The boxes contain nice things, like books (also made of trees)

So I think Anon is my favourite character; then Ethan; then Flicker.


Anyone else find themselves shipping Anon and Ethan for a while there? :P
So I finally picked up Zeroes again after not reading it forever and I so agree with all of this ^
And also Ethanonymous forever

Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on November 13, 2016, 12:29:47 PM
I'd suggest skipping Scott's early works and just read Afterworlds,  The Zeros Series, and the Leviathan Trilogy TBH
His early stuff has interesting plots but the character development is flat.
Title: Re: Zeroes
Post by: Catvomitsky on November 13, 2016, 12:34:16 PM
Yeah, true tbh. But I find the books so intellectually engaging and engrossing that I say read them anyway, just to say you've read all Scott's stuff if nothing else :P
Title: Re: Zeroes

I'd give it to you for your birthday or somethin but that would require me asking my parents to let me make an online purchase for someone they don't even know I know from a website they don't know I'm on. So.

I'm like halfway through Zeroes. Okay, I love Scott and his writing and this book, but I will be seriously disappointed if Kelsie and Ethan have a clichéd romance and end up together. Pls no
