    • it's comin' to get ya!so - this series is over, i reckon. and i'm not terribly sad to see it go. she had a golden shiny opportunity here, and she kinda blew it. you can't feel bad for her, it's like a celebrity sex scandal; the destruction was purely self-destructionis is why it could have been awesome:the premise of this series is fantastic; it presents an opportunity for real scientific discussions of what the moon (if you believe in the moon) controls,and speculations on what would happen if [...]


    • If you could hear me now, you'd be hearing a loud a dramatic *sigh*. I liked this series, and I kind of want to give this one two stars butI can't. Reading this series is like eating french fries--even when it's not that great, it's still pretty good. FROM THIS POINT ON, IT IS BASICALLY ONE LONG SPOILER. YOU WERE WARNED.Now, we all know I wanted to murder Alex in the last book for not breaking down walls and stealing *&^% from other apartments. I believe other reviewers have mentioned the sa [...]


    • In this 3rd book in the Last Survivors series, the two groups of survivors depicted in books 1 and 2 come together. Humanity faces possible extinction as natural disasters and climate changes hit Earth following an asteroid strike pushing the moon closer to the planet. It's been a year since the disaster. Very few people remain alive. This group of 10 survivors faces not only the daily fight for survival, but also their own emotions, weaknesses and fears. They must learn to live and work togethe [...]


    • You really could read the description or blurb of the book and basically get the whole story. Of course you don't get the same feel of it and this book gives the same message as the first two. The description gives you most of the plot except for the big decision that Miranda has to make. The whole book was put in Miranda's point of view and I was somewhat disappointed about that. Out of the other Last Survivor books I liked Alex's point of view better than Miranda's. As for the relationship bet [...]


    • Edit 5/2011: Apparently Pfeffer is hoping to publish a companion to this series ("The Shade of the Moon"), which will take a look at this world they live in 16 years after this book ends. This gives me a bit of hope.My hopes are dashed - there will be no 4th book. If nothing else, Pfeffer's stories get you thinking. They force you to consider what you would do if you were in her characters' shoes - would you have stockpiled food up in case of an emergency? Or would you basically be at the mercy [...]



    • You ever read a book that makes you want to run to the grocery store and stock up on batteries, canned food, and eye the moon with suspiscion? No? Well, friends, I think you need to check out the Moon trilogy by Susan Beth Pfeffer. The first book, Life As We Knew It, set my heart racing, as I read about Miranda's seemingly ordinary life, and the mundane things she struggled with when her life changes after an asteroid hits the moon, thus knocking it out of orbit. I never got around to reading th [...]


    • Super annoying book. I finished it in one sitting, because I had to know what happened, but I was very disappointed. Alex's and Miranda's relationship had no build-up whatsoever. It was just, BAM, they are in love and kissing. And what was with Matt? He was so likable in the first book. Then, all of a sudden he's a world class jerk, with his cat killing wife. And what was the point of Lisa and Gabriel. All they did was whine. Alex was a jerk too, all he did was obsess about putting Julie in a co [...]



    • I have been looking forward to reading This World We Live In, the third book in Susan Beth Pfeffer's Moon trilogy, for what seems like ages. After tearing through Life As We Knew It I spent countless late nights up with a newborn agonizing over what I would do in such a catastrophic situation. Due to Miranda's spell-binding account, the hubby and I often spent hours mentally counting canned foods, organizing medications, and obsessing over ways to cook without electricity. Not often does a book [...]


    • (Make disgusted noise in the back of throat)Proof that even interesting, deep sounding scifi can be turned into fluff. No, not fluff. I generally enjoy fluff, even though I rarely find it satisfying. This is more like trashTHING happened, except A LOT of whining, random acts of 'passion' (Alex: I hate you. Miranda: I hate you too. ), and breaking into houses, which is why this book gets two stars intead of one. Because let's face it. Deep down in each of us, there's a part that madly wants to lo [...]


    • Quick review for a quick read. Good news is that I read this in one sitting and it was a very quick, easy read to move through despite it being a while since I picked up the series. Bad news? I think this book didn't hold up as well with me compared to the first two books. I always liked the theme for this particular series, and even the personal focus on its viewpoint characters. This book brings the POV back to Miranda and her family. I liked the first part of the book well enough, with Mirand [...]


    • Ça y est C'est fini. Et quelle fin. Je n'ai pas pu retenir les quelques larmes qui ont coulé dis donc. Encore des défauts, dans ce dernier tome Mais la perfection est overrated. Je pense que je n'oublierai pas cette trilogie de sitôt.


    • Ein klitzekleines bisschen schwächer als die beiden Vorgänger, aber immernoch toll.Da das Buch um einiges dünner ist, ging mir manches in diesem Band zu schnell, aber ansonsten war die Story wieder toll und sehr glabhaft. Es gab einige Überraschungen und besonders das Ende war toll und passte perfekt zu dieser Reihe.


    • So you already know Miranda from Life As We Knew It and Alex from The Dead and the Gone and now you have a mashup of the two in This World We Live In, told to us again through entries in Miranda's diary.I have issues with this last installment of the trilogy. I like both these kids, so I was glad they were back for more, and together this time. While Miranda continues to act like a typical 17-year old, whiny one moment, mature the next, Alex seemed like a different person. He either developed a [...]


    • Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. Miranda's voice is so compelling, and my need to know what happened just kept me turning pages. There is heartbreak here, more so than in Life As We Knew It. I paused at one point to mourn, and now at the end I am just weeping quietly. I can't decide if this is four or five stars, but at the moment, I loved it even while the story broke my heart.Susan Beth Pfeffer stays true to Miranda's character. At times I wanted to shake her, but her honesty, her desi [...]


    • Третата част на поредицата „Последните оцелели” (изд. „Ибис”) най-накрая връхлетя и с български превод! След „Живота, какъвто го познавахме” и „Изгубени завинаги” нямах търпение да видя какво ще ни сервира Сюзан Бет Пфефър в продължението на историята. Изминала е една [...]


    • Are you kidding me? The novel started strong for me. I liked that we were back in Miranda's point of view (although maybe bouncing between Miranda and Alex would have been more believable and helped make Alex's return to the East Coast more plausible). But then the novel slowly spiraled out of control and made me want to poke my eyes out. I better just list the things that annoyed me.1. Um, Miranda almost died in book 1. She had this transcendent moment, where she realized that her death would h [...]


    • May 27It’s May 27, just nine days after May 18. If you’ve read my diary (Life As We Knew It), you know what that means. Exactly one year and nine days ago, life as I had known it was gone forever. On that fateful evening, an asteroid sucker-punched the moon with such force that it must have doubly and triply smashed in the already-smashed-in craters. The moon is now closer to me on this earth, and I honestly don’t know how bad off the craters are, but this I know — this one cataclysmic e [...]


    • Now, I kind of wish she’d written about a third set of people who’d gone through this disaster (which was a consideration at one point, according to the author) rather than continue the stories of characters from Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone. Before reading this, I did want to know what had happened with everyone. Now that I’ve finished this book, I’m curious about what happens with everyone who still survives. It’s very frustrating.For me, this was not quite as rivetin [...]


    • Wie das Leben vor der Katastrophe war, daran kann sich Miranda kaum noch erinnern. Eine vollständige Familie, genug zu essen, eine funktionierende Heizung - es scheint ewig her zu sein. Fast alle ihre Freunde und Verwandten haben den Ort verlassen oder sind gestorben. Nur wenn es ums Essen geht, sitzen plötzlich viel zu viele Leute am Tisch. Die Rationen sind winzig, nie ist genug da. Doch eines Tages steht Mirandas Vater vor der Tür. Mit seiner Freundin und einem Baby. Und einem Jungen, den [...]


    • This was really disappointing. All the wonderful progress Miranda's character went through in the first book is completely gone here. Matt is completely different as well, he is such an admirable character in the first book, and he changes into a whiny selfish brat here. Not only are the characters lacking, but the plot and the setting are disappointingly low on detail and quality. I think a lot of people read these books to experience the cool apocalyptic setting and events, but it's so much in [...]


    • This World We Live In is the third and hopefully the final installment of The Last Survivors. This story continues with Miranda journaling her life a year after a meteor collides with the moon, shifting its position, and causing catastrophic events on Earth. Nothing hopeful happens in this book; it's all about death, destruction, hunger, suffering, depression and the daunting reality of what could happen if a single event (so out of our control) occurs and suddenly changes life as we know it. I [...]


    • It's the end of the world as we know it, it's the end of the world as we know it, it's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.Well, I have to admit I liked this one much better than The Dead and the Gone. I know I am in the minority with this, but I feel like this one got some of the magic back. I picked this book up and you couldn't have gotten it out my hands today. even to go to the beach (ask my hubs). Seriously, this one hooked me in. I am also in the minority with feeling very [...]


    • Book three is the Last Survivors series takes us back to Howell, Pennsylvania. It’s been a year since an asteroid knocked the moon out of its orbit and closer to the earth. Miranda Evans, her mother and two brothers have managed to survive, but most of the townspeople have left and food is increasingly scarce. A tentative Spring brings new hope, at least until Miranda’s father and stepmother arrive with a new baby, and three strangers in tow. This was really a major disappointment. Miranda h [...]


    • I'm almost finished this one, the third book in Pfeffer's "oh crap the moon was hit be a meteor and moved closer to the Earth causing complete havoc" series. This diary-style YA book has the female protagonist from book 1 (Miranda) meeting the male protagonist in book 2 (Alex). The female is back to telling the story.My criticisms of book 1 arise again in this book. Most of this story could be summarized with "We're hungry and bored. Will we have enough food to survive?" Although realistic consi [...]


    • The third in the series is treading on thin ice (get it- the Earth is now freezing) as the combination of Miranda and Alex's families occur. The relationship between these two main characters should be better, but Alex is holier than thou and Miranda seems watered down from her original kick-ass persona from the first book. This new band of survivors need to find a better option of where to live and plan on how to make it happen. Although this third book falls far from the first book, it still e [...]



    • "Christ has blessed us," Alex said."Yes, He has," Dad said.Well, that was a conversation stopper.Well, Miranda, I couldn't agree more!Now, where do I start about how a very nice series went so horribly, horribly wrong It could have been a great book. It could have been one of my favourites. If it were not for that stupid jerk called Alex (and a couple of other things). Why on Earth did Ms Pfeffer had to invent him? Why couldn't she let him, please please, die somewhere along the way? Preferably [...]


    • Отдавна не бях плакала на книга. На тази беше с глас Прочетох я за два дни и това е може би най-добрия възможен финал на една от най-силните трилогии, които съм чела. Разтърсваща Както си говорихме със сестра ми - една от малкото книги, които като спреш за малко да четеш си напр [...]
