      Ok, when I do a review, I dont copy and paste the excerpt of the book nor give too much info of the story, so if your waiting to find spoilers go to the next review or better yet, buy the book!!When I finished this book, I send to the author an email, asking her if this book will have a sequel, I must admit that my tone was a little desperate!Why?Because this story blew my mind!! Since page one, you're pulled in to an extraordinary story, fast-paced with such a narrative power, and the writing i [...]

      Wow wow wow. I had so much fun reading this. It ended so suddenly and I'm not ready for it to be over yet! I need a sequel so bad. I'm still so confused about many things. Is Cole real or not? Where is Tess now? Will she die? What in the world is going on? I'm absolutely shocked at how much I liked this book. It ended up being much more than I first anticipated. I recommend.Please, I need a second book.

      Angela Scott can do no wrong. I have devoured all of her novels and Anyone? Is no exception. When 16-year-old Tess’ world starts falling apart, literally, her doomsday survivalist dad ushers her into a bunker in her backyard. He orders her to stay put until he returns while he goes to get her brother. He promises her he’ll just be a few hours not to let anyone in any circumstances. The problem is, he never comes back. After two months she finally decides to go find him herself but she’s no [...]

      Anyone? Anyone? Hello?This book is so fun! 4.5 out of 5 stars for me!The author sent me an e-arc for my honest review and it was so fun!The apocalypse is happening in this book and its basically a race from the beginning to end. I love the way Angela Scott always has you guessing in this book! I just could not stop reading it! The characters are fun, though I took a half of a point off for not building them up, especially Tess in the beginning. She was a little flat for a while. However, Scott w [...]

      There were several things I loved about this book. First is Tess. She really is a teenager and Angela Scott did a great job of portraying her as such. Second is Cole. An interesting character with an interesting view of the world now that there’s no one around for miles. Third, I loved the tension between them. There’s an incredible love/hate relationship that sparks in all the best ways. Fourth, I loved the cat as an important character. Last, I loved the adventure and the mystery of what h [...]

      I loved everything about Anyone?. From the title posed as a question, to the fantastic cover, to the carefully crafted characters, to the pace, and finally, to the amazingly satisfying - yet mystifying - ending.Because I subscribe to the author's newsletters, I read the first chapter of this book months ago. At least, it seems like that long ago. And it wouldn't leave my brain. Every now and then, I would wonder what happened to Tess. Did her dad come back for her? Did he find Tess' brother? Wha [...]

      I received an advance copy from the author for review. I have read all of Angela's books, and it's hard to pick one as a favorite. This one easily battles for the top spot though!Tess is a typical teenager with typical teenage problems, until the day that she finds her world literally falling apart. The book opens with explosions rocking the city in which she lives, and her father telling her to get out of the house and into the fallout shelter that has been his obsession for the past few years. [...]

      While I enjoy this author's writing style, I was never able to connect with her young character, Tess; and I never understood the hot-cold dynamics between her and Cole. I kinda guessed what was going on with Cole (but we never get an answer), but the book ends without many threads resolved (possibly, this is the start of a series?). So many unanswered questions, especially regarding Cole, why her dad didn't find time to return for her after her brother was safe, and a few other things I won't m [...]

      I would like to thank the author for providing me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Doing so does not sway my review in any way.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.

      (Possible Spoiler) I really wanted to give this book 5 stars but#1. It was a little slow in the beginning for me and I put it down. But it kept nagging at me to give it a chance, so I picked it back up determined to see it through and also because the ratings were pretty good. Unfortunately for me I didn't actually read the comments under the ratings.#2. It grew on me till I couldn't put it down. Unfortunately when I reached the end (I checked before I started the book and as far as I could tell [...]

    12. James Oliver French on said:

      This book fell into the same trap that every single YA "novel" from a self-pubbed author that I've read this year has fallen into. It tells 3/4 of a story, and very well I might add, but leaves all the interesting parts dangling without resolution. I get that the author wants to get two books out of the story because it's twice the revenue, and hopefully more readers, but not at the expense of the first book. She might leave a few hints at the end of the story about Cole's background, but withou [...]

    13. Elizabeth on said:

      Someone compared this to the masterpiece, The Road, which compelled me to write this review. No, it's not The Road. It's not even a fluffy teeny bopper version of The Road. I couldn't let that comparison stand unchallenged. I'm surprised by all the high ratings. Teenaged young women are amazing, intelligent, resilient--the main character, who fits into this age group, was far from any of those qualities. The story both ends and begins too abruptly. There's little explanation as to what happened. [...]

    14. Michelle on said:

      This is another one that has been on my list since the dinosaurs roamed and another one that I'm a bit iffy about. The premise was pretty cool until about 3/4 of the way through the book and then it took some kind of paranormal routeI think. Maybe that's what the author meant to happen. Let the reader come to their own conclusion, but honestly it seems unfulfilling to me somehow. Normally I'm used to most dystopian novels being series reads. This was a stand alone with an ending that was making [...]

      No matter how many end-of-the-world books I read, I never seem to get sick of them.This one is about sixteen-year-old Tess, who is shaken awake by her father in the middle of the night and led to his bomb shelter. He tells her not to open the door until he comes back, so she waits . . . and waits . . . and waits. Several weeks after her father left, she can’t wait anymore. Tess opens the door and discovers that everyone in her city has vanished.Throughout the book, the reader is kept just as c [...]

      The Story-It was a normal night when the booming began. Sixteen-year-old Tess was grabbed by her father and taken outside to their bomb shelter. He leaves her there to go find her brother. Left alone, with only her kitten Callie, Tess waits, but her Father never returns. She can only wonder at what has happened. After several months in the shelter Tess ventures out to find an empty world, no animal and no humans.Where is everyone? She wanders and finally comes across Cole, a twenty something guy [...]

      I'm halfway throughI'm going to finish it, but I've been sorely tempted not to. I'll do it, though, to read this mysterious last chapter people keep referring to.The writing is mostly fine. I try not to read self-published books but this one apparently slipped through. The writing really is okay, though.It's Tessd Cole. I hate them. Both of them. This means the only tolerable character is the cat.Cole repeatedly refers to Tess as a "kid." He's in his 20's. Guys that age don't talk like that. Not [...]

      **Disclaimer - I was given an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review** I wanted to rate this book 3.5 stars but wouldn't let me so I rounded up and gave it 4 stars. I have read a couple of Ms. Scott's zombie westerns. They were fun so I liked her on Facebook so that I would know when she wrote something new. Anyone? is nothing like those other books. From the start I didn't want to put it down and when I had to and couldn't get back to it right away I found myself thinking about it. The [...]

    19. Guy Vestal- Counter Culture Critic on said:

      A great book, a great use of words. I would recommend it to both young adults, as well as older ones. From beginning to end, it kept me reading. It was by no means predictable.I loved Tess, and yes she is the whiny, wishy-washy teenager in the end of the world. Her "soldier/prepper" Father goes off in search of the brother, telling her to stay put, and indeed she does, until a couple of months go by, where she comes out to find everyone gone. She does run into Cole, who we really don't get, but [...]

    20. Angela Fleischmann on said:

      I liked it untilI was really getting a feel for this book and the charactersen the story just ended. It was like the writer got bored and just finished it quickly. The ending came with no real explanation and I think there was more to tell and learn about the characters. Very disappointed.

    21. Shannon Fay on said:

      The moment I discovered this book And read the synopsis, I was hooked. Not only because I have an undying love for anything apocalyptic/dystopic (because I do), but also because our main character's dad happens to be a prepper. Now if you knew me personally, you would know why that instantly catches my eye. But since you lot don't, I'll explain. I'm a little On the crazy side myself and I have also begun to low key prep, not like in the backyard insanity, more of a trying MRE's to see which ones [...]

      3 Punkte für die erste Hälfte, 5 Punkte für die zweite Hälfte. Und für gute und schlechte Zeiten wünsche ich mir meinen eigenen Cole.Mit einer Fortsetzung der Geschichte hätte ich nicht gerechnet, für mich hat das Buch sehr überzeugend geendet, ich freue mich trotzdemTeam Cole!

    23. Mia on said:

      So relieved when I found out there will be a sequel. Because I NEED TO KNOW MORE AND THE STORY CAN'T JUST END WHERE IT DID.

    24. Lady Wolf on said:

      Awful. I couldn't even finish the sample because it just dragged on and the writing needs a lot of work.

    25. Melissa Pollock on said:

      Great story. It was a great story. I couldn't put the book down. But I hated the way it ended. It left you with so many unanswered questions. There needs to be a second part to this

    26. Kara on said:

      I couldn’t finish it it just dragged on and on. It started out promising then i just lost interest.

    27. Rachael on said:

      I love this book, but this book totally broke my heart a good way!!! I couldn't put this book down! The dynamic between the characters worked on so many levels, and I connected with the main character sooooo much! I was dying the whole time, wanting so much to happen that didn't happen but didn't happen for good reasons as you will find out, and the ending was so perfect and soooooo.I just can't describe it. I am in love with book, and half of me is desperate for a squeal the other wants to read [...]

      Lately I have been on the hunt for good apocalyptic fiction. I gave We All Looked Up a try last year and was entirely unimpressed, so since then I've been wondering if there were any good books at all about the actual apocalypse. Well, there is. It's called Anyone? Honestly, I was a little hesitant to read this book at first, simply because I'd never heard of it or its author. I am SO glad I decided to go ahead.Anyone? is a story about a girl, Tess, who is stuck in a bunker in her backyard. Alon [...]

      I didn't really want to review this bookーat least not now, since I'm still emotionally damaged by its abrupt ending. And I'm saying that in a good way.Anyone? by Angela Scott is one of the few post-apocalyptic novels I really enjoyed; this book also managed to scare the bloody hell out of me. Not because it was particularly creepy or gory (there are just some disturbing scenes like (view spoiler)[Dylan's death (hide spoiler)]) but because of the plot.Just imagine it: you're alone with your psy [...]
