    1. It seems as though YA Science Fiction is experiencing a bit of a resurgence lately. Like many other readers, I'm a little tired of the barely-dystopian trend, so it's great to see a very firmly science-oriented book like Partials come along. Airborne viruses + survivalist action drama + human interest story is a great combination, and one I think most fans of post-apocalyptic thrillers will enjoy. In the year 2076, 11 years after an airborne viral outbreak, the average newborn lives just 56 hour [...]

You can now check out the Partials trailer right HERE on !A Partials-themed Acrostic!Pregnancy obligations for the young like in Bumped.Amateur military of Falling Skies.Rioters and mercenaries threaten way of life like in The Survivors.The MC is a bad-ass female scientist like in BonesInfertility woes of the women on the Lost island.Artificially created humans similar to Cylons from Battlestar Galactica.Lots of myths being bustedIENCE!!! The Rundown The world has been decimated by an airborne [...]

    3. It seems to me that the first mistake made with this book was to target teenage girls. Here I come with my gender stereotyping and I'm sure there will be other female readers who'll love this book and disagree with me but despite the protagonist being female and the cover featuring a teen girl, Dan Wells appears to have written a "boy book". The lengthy descriptions and idle conversations were dull enough without the subject matter going from hockey to guns to bombs.In the words of Mr Presley: " [...]

    4. oh my god!! i just got an unexpected ARC of this on the SAME DAY as i got the new ron rash ARC!!! what is a girl to do??? too many good things at once!!! this is the best nightmare i have ever had!________________________________________________________________________________________________________this is a very high three-stars. it would have been a four if i was just judging it on enjoyment and the ability of the plot to engage me. but i have decided to be more responsible when reviewing the [...]

    5. Oh, for fuck's sake, just make it stop. God, this book bored me to tears. I fucking quit. No love lost.Dan Wells, you write pretty well. In fact, your writing is enjoyable. But I just had to throw in the towel by about page 80. I just couldn't take it any longer. I opened the ebook file one last time, just to take one more stab at it, and I swear there were tears in my eyes. I shut it down. Laughing is okay. Eye-rolling I can deal with too. But crying is not appropriate. When a book makes me cry [...]

    6. I'm gonna struggle a bit here and say some good things. The writing is clear. The characters are easily visualized. The plot twist is serviceable. It's not a bad book. There's plenty of tension and action and *big* *fear*.But?Yeah, well, um I'm read it before. A lot. But it's YA! It's meant for new readers who've never been blown away by classics like Darwin's Radio or The Children of Men or any of two out of three dystopian YA novels on the market.Add cute girl and two cute boys, give her talen [...]

    7. Intense with highly sophisticated world building- Partials is a fantastic addition to the dystopian genre. Babies don't survive and the youngest human on earth is now 14 years old. With 99% of the population gone, killed by a new epidemic, Kira is determined to find a cure to save humanity.I have to start with Kira because she is an excellent protagonist. She is incredibly determined, and this presence throughout the novel of pure dedication to her cause is all consuming. You want her to succeed [...]

    8. Oh, wait while I find my mouth under my bed where it droppedSo, are you ready for this wonderful journey into the future?Here we go…It all came down to a war - the worst of them all.It was not between humans, but between them and the Partials.Because what if robots didn’t look like robots anymore?What if they looked exactly like humans? What if they were genetically programmed and made into the best weapon alive, a dangerously thinking one? Breathing flesh-and-blood robots meant to kill - st [...]

    9. I feel like this review should begin like one of the old AlkaSeltzer commercials."I can't believe I read the whole thing."I try to be balanced on my reviews, but this book made it very difficult. There were a million little things that got under my skin, and it added up to a book that didn't make sense and was ultimately unlikable.What I liked about this book:The genre? I guess? Although, reading this had made me rethink that decision.What I didn't like about this book:Hoo boy, where do I start? [...]

    10. Before you read my review…I originally rated this book 4 out of 5 stars but after I wrote my review, I lowered it to 2.5 out of 5 stars (rounded up to 3 stars). My reasons… I rated the book immediately after reading it and I was clearly caught up in the last 25% of the book. When I wrote my review, I realized that the majority of my review was negative and I had plenty of issues with the story. Thus, I changed my rating.The BadI didn’t feel a real connection with the characters. The real s [...]

    11. Thank you, NetGallery! I should have read this book sooner. No stupid love triangles, strong girl as the main character - no crying, thinking over and over about the boy and why did he do that or this, believable scientific background of the story and so onSo, if you like sci-fi, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it type of the stories, grab your copy of this book and read it as soon as possible.

    12. The YA genre is certainly rife with dystopians. You can't go out without tripping over one. Okay fine, that is an exaggeration but I can't help but get weary of the same plots with a few subtle differences (you know, differences like the cause of the ultimate breakdown of modern society). There's usually a girl. She usually has powers. There's also usually a society with tyrannical rulers/dictators/whatever you wanna call them (a rose by any other name and all). Then there is a boy. Mysterious. [...]

    13. This book is so much fun!!The plot is crazy and there is so much action. I am a Biochemistry major and I love science, and this book had a ton of science in it. There is a virus called RM that inhibits babies from living past a couple of hours, so a large portion of the book is dedicated to finding a cure for this. It goes pretty in depth with the research and specifics of the virus and I just think that's so cool :) I did like the main character Kira, although she was annoying at points because [...]

    14. This book isn't holding my attention. At all. Too much boring detail, too many boring characters, the writing style is too bland. This is simply not my thing.

    15. HolyAwesome!It’s been a loooong while since I’ve felt this excited about a post apoc/ dystopia YA. I thought I’d burned out on them after reading Starters and Eve and heck even Shatter Me; the lack of detail in the first two and the over indulgent writing in the other simply put me off. So I really am not kidding when I say it’s been a long time since I’ve felt this excited about a book of this type. It's a little like Grant’s Feed (or Deadline) because this too does not limit itself [...]

    16. How do I love thee, Partials? Let me count the ways….1)Thy witty, spicy dialogue. If you’re a fan of Firefly/Serenity or Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s (the show, not the movie) whip-sharp banter, you’re going to love this book. It’s got the same kind of effortless, rapid-fire discourse Joss Whedon injects in his cult-classic shows. A lot of authors shoot for this and fail miserably; Wells doesn’t just succeed, he excels at dialogue. I could seriously have read and enjoyed this book pure [...]

    18. Oh! My! Gosh! That was Amazing!!!If you like sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, dystopian, amazing characters, action packed plot, twists that have twists, a little romance in-between things blowing up and gunshots, and just all around smart writing, put this on your to-read list! NOW!Wow, this is going to be hard to do spoiler free. Here goes.First let me say that the beginning of the book might be a little slow for some people. It's not one of those kind where the author takes forever to set up the sto [...]

    19. I’m sitting here, trying to figure out how to write a review for this amazing novel. The awesome author, Dan Wells, has totally blown me away. Partials is an incredibly amazing world and storyline with fantastic characters. I can't even pick which is my favorite. Dan Wells gave all of them terrific personalities: Kira is head-strong, Marcus is the fun guy, Jayden is a take charge guy, Xochi is the bad-ass chick, Madison is the caring mom figure, Haru is the jerk, Isolde is a analyst and Samm i [...]

    20. ¿Vieron cuando un libro te atrapa?Bueno esto es lo que sucede con este libro.Sin lugar a dudas es una historia FASCINANTE. Una vez que empezas a leer no podes frenar. Reí, llore, ame y odie. Este libro agarró mi corazón y lo partió en dos, después lo piso, lo reventó, lo molio a palos, los destrozó en mil pedacitos y asi y todo lo ame. La historia es desgarradora, completa, bella, con un millón de giros que te mantienen al filo.La protagonista tiene carácter y hace lo que cree mejor pa [...]

    21. 4.5OH MY JESUS CHRIST! I'M SO FANGIRLING ABOUT THIS BOOK.Reading Partials is like James Dashner or Scott Westerfeld were teaching you immunology and virology and then taking you to this fantastic travel across a destroyed world!This is the type of book any SCI-FI FAN would like. It has an interesting world-building, with a great backstory, amazing well developed characters, and more. Also a lot of science and political stuff, not the classic "horrible-abusing government" but the one that could e [...]

    22. **4.5 stars****No spoilers**This book was a really nice surprise. I think I must not have read the synopsis clearly when I bought it because I thought it was a book where aliens had taken over the world and there were only one community of humans left. But yeah, not at all. In a way I think that helped me to like it so much, because I was surprised whilst reading it. Maybe I should try and do that more oftenAnyway, I thought the plot was really interesting as I've not read anything about genetic [...]

    23. Partials By Dan WellsA Review by Eric AllenI have been totally blown away by every single book that Dan Wells has written. I don't know where he came from all of a sudden, but in the last 4 years he's written 5 extremely good books. And as writers should, he gets better with every book that he publishes, expanding his ideas, fixing things that didn't work, and improving upon his skills as a storyteller. If you have not read I Am Not A Serial Killer yet, go buy it or check it out of the library N [...]

    24. "Partials" had many elements that I absolutely loved - for the genre, for the audience, for the issues it raises and the questions that it poses for the characters within the world Dan Wells creates. Granted, some of the characters had their insufferable qualities just as realistic characters probably would when faced with the odds depicted in this novel, but man, what a ride. Each and every time I picked up this book, I did not want to put it down, and I can only think of that as a good sign.I [...]

    25. Oh, man. This book made me feel like humanity was my nasty ex, and I had just dumped his ass before snapping my fingers in Z-formation.By that, I mean most of the humans in this book pissed me off - though they were supposed to. PARTIALS takes place in a futuristic world where humanity is quickly going extinct after a virus released during the Partial-Human war kills off babies less than a week after birth. Kira Walker, sixteen, is a medic-in-training. When someone important to her becomes pregn [...]

    26. An ARC was provided by Harpercollins Canada for review! Thank you!Humans created the Partials long ago by ParaGen. They created the ultimate super being. Stronger, faster, smarter to help aid in modern warfare for the enemy hostiles. Then the Partials created the RM virus, wiping away almost the entire human population with a few being immune to the virus.We find Kira, a 16 year old medical intern, who works and lives in East Meadow. She assists in the pregnancy ward of the hospital. Her best fr [...]

    27. ¡Qué buen libro!Excelente y con excelente me quedo corta.Uno de los mundos post-apocalípticos más interesantes con los que he tenido el gusto de encontrarme, y una de las mejores distopías que he leído hasta el momento.Muy bien escrito, muy bien pensado. No sé cómo voy a resistir la espera para el segundo.

    28. Dude. How cool is this book!Fighting, saving the wold, kick-ass protagonist and mates that completely have your back, grenades, going on dangerous and not- so- sophisticated adventures, loyal and brave. Oh and very likable.Kira! A protagonist that I liked a lot. It really is a great feeling to find yourself genuinely liking the protagonist. We so need more of those.Our gal is brave, a heart-breaker (tut tut), tough, loyal and caring. Being a medic is in her blood. I say this because even when th [...]

    29. MORE? MORE! @ P.S. I love that book!So Laura told me about this book like three years ago. Since then I have had it on my kindle as an ebook but for some absolutely unexplainable reason I never picked it up till now. I expected it also for some reason to be about a whiny girl in some advanced technology world. Do not ask me why. I do not know. So I think it rather clear that I went into this book with very low expectation, even so yes, Laura has told me it is amazing and normally I believe her. [...]
