    1. my very first photoset also, no spoilers As a reviewer, I don t think I m particularly picky as in how a book should be written, but I do have a criteria that all books should reach, for me to be able to give 3 stars 1 The first 10 pages should pass the Bechdel Test2 No love triangle3 No instant declarations of love4 No belittling women who openly express their sexuality5 Have an actual plot that makes sense6 Be in someway original It shouldn t be so hard to meet these six points, but I m consta [...]


    2. N o um livro terr vel Mas pensando no que eu poderia dizer de bom sobre ele, n o conseguir listar nada um livro Meh Acho q ele t o meh que n o consigo nem levar a s rio os problemas bvios que ele tem, como personagens unidimensionais, constru o de mundo inexistente, um ritmo estranho que lerdo at a metade e depois parece o Transformers por tantas cenas de a o, vil es, fugas, capturas, fugas de novo quase caricato Sem contar na rela o instant nea do casal q como sempre, quando constru da dessa fo [...]


    3. Rating 1.5 StarsThis book is one of the most ridiculous novels I ve read to date and I m kind of shocked Lyga was apart of this project Everything is pretty shoddy here from the world building to the characters to the barely there plot This book seems like an attempt to just jump aboard the dystopia with a strong heroine bandwagon and there s not much to like here at all Review to come much closer to publication date.


    4. After the Red Rain is a dystopian, which we re all familiar with, but I found the premise to be really original if a bit weird.Deedra exists That s what most people do in this post apocalyptic version of the earth Everything has been destroyed There s almost no sun She must drag herself to work in a factory every day to receive her rations genetically engineered food She also spends a great deal of time scavenging for things No one knows much about the past, except everyone believes things now a [...]


    5. Thank you so much to Little Brown for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review To start of this review, I thought I d be pretty honest with you guys I ve barely read dystopians this year, and that s mainly because I was getting a bit bored with them Don t worry, it s still my favorite genre, but the few that I had been reading had just gotten a bit repetitive After the Red Rain has rekindled my love for the fantastic genre The novel follows a young girl named Deedra, who lives i [...]


    6. What do you get when you take two Hollywood execs and a YA author and throw them together to write a book You get The Hunger Games or Divergent if they were done by Michael Bay Especially when you take three grown men and ask them to write a teenage girl as the main character.I feel like the plotting process for After the Red Rain involved a bunch of old guys in suits sitting around a table and picking the most popular aspects of YA literature Oh, it has to be a dystopian one cries, while anothe [...]


    7. One word BoringWith this book, I feel like I didn t read anything, to be honest A girl named Deedra meets a boy named Rose and together they find out why the earth is crap and how they can fix it Sounds like a pretty good book but nothing happened.Keep Reading


    8. Read I was a little uncertain about this book from the start I ve never read Barry Lyga before, and the dystopian angle didn t sound particularly new However, it was so hyped at BEA that I decided to snag a copy from Netgalley Unfortunately, I should have considered my earlier reservations After the Red Rain is a mess of a book Yet it begins with such a thrilling, poignant moment a man in a strange factory of corpses, risking life and limb to save an infant from the grinding machines He gives h [...]


    9. 3.5 StarsHead over to the HEA blog to see the full interview with the authors Here s the first question Tell us about Deedra and Rose Barry Deedra has the capacity for bravery and selflessness in a world that only rewards greed and naked self interest She s not a superhero or a warrior her strength comes from her innate curiosity and her willingness to step back and observe and learn Rose, meanwhile, is the one unsullied, unbroken thing in a world that s crumbling underfoot He s decent and kind, [...]


    10. Dark look into the far futureAFTER THE RED RAIN is a dark, dreary look at a far distant dystopian future People have forgotten the details but in the far past, half the world s population 50 billion people were wiped off the face of the earth.In the future, everyone accepts the status quo power hungry magistrates, deadly air and water conditions, everyone except the elite being on starvation diets The endless cities are rubble with people living in the ruins Protagonist Deedra Ward lives in a ti [...]


    11. As an avid reader of YA novels and a longtime fan of Barry Lyga s writings, I was eagerly anticipating his creative take on After The Red Rain, written in collaboration with Peter Facinelli Rob DeFranco I was not disappointed in how this novel developed the dystopian world in which the main characters, Rose and Deedra, find themselves Character development was strong throughout the novel There is a smooth evolution and unfolding of the storyline in the beginning of the novel, including a mystery [...]


    12. I won this book via First Reads The storyline was semi original Dystopian earth being wiped out yada yada Did anyone else think of Wall E when reading this Rose is the plant Wall E carries around and Deedra is like Wall E, out picking up junk Anyway Deedra was annoying She went from not caring to caring oh wait she doesn t care again Don t you think someone who has been on her own for so long would be mature Or of a badass She would be used to making tough decisions I wasn t feeling it with he [...]


    13. When this book started I was really into it, then it took a strange turn and as much as I really wanted to love this book because I am a Barry Lyga fan, I couldn t quite let myself go there It was a good story but a little out there I don t quite know how I feel Though it is good that it is a stand alone because I really don t know where they would go from here Meh


    14. This book was pretty interesting right from the start After the Red Rain tells the story of boy meets girl in a world beyond hope It also exploits the idea that it is amazing what you can get used to.Deedra Ward s life is pretty bleak As an orphan, she has only had herself to rely on She lives in the Ludo territory and is under constant surveillance She is almost out of resources by the end of the month Air quality is poor Food is genetically modified and scare She goes to work everyday in a fac [...]


    15. I received my e ARC from Netgalley In return, I offer my honest review After The Red Rain is an attempt at a unique view of the post apocalypse genre For the most part, it accomplishes what it initially sets out to do Deedra, our primary protagonist, knows nothing of the world before what she currently experiences In her world, the internet is made up of Wikis, which all offer conflicting viewpoints and information about history For Deedra, she chooses to not care, because she believes things we [...]


    16. I really liked the idea of the book It was well written and every character had a distinct personality AND I LOVED ROSE UYGFHUJLKDF But there were some things unexplained, and some typos like misspelling Deedra s name Lol , and there was some language and literature references that made me go huh But I loved it nonetheless


    17. I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This was strange and rather boring The world building is not anything new or exciting The characters were either bland Deedra or so bizarre Rose that readers will have a hard time connecting to them, resulting in indifference to their fates Little beyond Deedra s discomfort with her scar is universal enough to really draw readers in and allow them to see themselves in her shoes The decision to develop a hero with [...]


    18. I was not fazed by the fact that this book had actor, Peter Facinelli s name connected to it I was interested in the postapocalyptic aspect of this book The pre and post genre is still hot and picking up steam in the book world and I am thrilled about this fact So anyways back to the book The world that Deedra and Rose resided in was very vivid and believable I could picture that this is what the world would look like if it was destroyed Deedra is a strong, independent female heroine Than there [...]


    19. 9thupSometime in Earth s bleak future, Deedra lives if you can call it that a hardscrabble life and doesn t even dare to dream that things can get better When she meets a strange and beautiful boy who calls himself Rose, Deedra learns that maybe there is hope for the future but much must be sacrificed along the wayRR might have benefitted from being edited down to a shorter length, and the hero s abilities were a bit too farcical for me to fully lose myself in the tale, bute book was still enter [...]


    20. Nope The story dragged with way too much mystery for the future dystopian world where there are scarce resources that leave many to scavenge unless you want to work for the government that will supply you with enough food to survive, but only to survive, and food is essentially genetically modified and cross cut between vegetables and animals that don t exist Billions have died so there aren t many people left and now Deedra, the heroine, meets a boy named Rose Not interested because it took too [...]


    21. Interesting read about an orphaned girl growing up in one of those desolate towns being controlled by the capital of sorts She meets Rose A beautiful boy with extraordinary powers We learn why the red rain really happened Why Rose is so unique how he just awoke one day in a cemetery surrounded by flowers Flowers most greens don t exist in this new world, all foods are synthetic They manage to escape together with hopes of creating a better world.


    22. I loved this book it was an attention grabber right from the very start The author s did an amazing job of drawing the reader into the story and never letting them go I loved the dynamics between the characters and didn t see the twists, turns, loops and curves that the author threw into the story It was unpredictable and fun and I am looking forward to the next book


    23. Was a pretty damn good book Had a major chick flick theme to it but also had a great adventure to it and thrill But also had a weird cool twist to the things I mNot going to spoil anything because that s just bs but I want to lol but it s definitely worth the read


    24. I m not sure what to say about the plotting, but the worldbuilding and the atmosphere of the book are stunning.



    25. Okay, it was a decent read and all great writing, still had a few flaws , butShe falls in love with a fucking plant.


    26. The word beautiful showed up in almost every description I think that annoyed and distracted me from everything else I had to finish though and all I can say is thank goodness it s finally over.



    27. After the Red Rain, written by Barry Lyga, Peter Facinelli, and Robert DeFranco, is a thrilling science fiction novel It is a treat of unpredictability and suspense in every chapter of the story The world building and the atmosphere is well given in the novel.The novel has a dystopian setting the earth was ruined by the red rain, which it killed about half of the human population There, life was difficult because the resources were scarce and it had environmental issues such as pollution Most of [...]


    28. I read the previous works of Lyga, and this one is something different entirely, the novel is somehow Dystopian, and it has tons of great ideas, but it felt as if they only scratched the surface, to put simply it felt like a middle grade Dystopian novel an episode of Doctor Who, especially with the name Rose used for the main protagonist , which was the real reason why I kept reading, I loved his chravhter , and if you watched Fantastic beasts and where to find them I think Rose is the incarnati [...]
