Partials by Dan Wells

“Well, thanks for not shooting anyone, I guess”, said Marcus. “My contribution was to somehow refrain from peeing myself. You can thank me later.”
― Dan Wells, Partials

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: I loved the character Marcus and his very funny attitude. I loved all the characters in this book. I loved the way this Dystopian society was created and what the aftermath looks like. Overall, I just really loved this book.

How I Felt: I was utterly pulled into this book. I could not consume it fast enough, and honestly once it was done, all I could think to do was find the next book. I love a survival story after a post-apocalyptic event and this was did not let me down.

“I’ve never been this wet in my life, ” said Kira. “Even immersed in a bathtub I swear I was dryer than I am now. “
“Look on the bright side, ” said Marcus.
Kira waited.
“This is the point at which you would traditionally suggest a bright side. “
“I’ve never been a real traditional guy,” said Marcus. “Besides, I’m not saying I know a bright side, I just think this would be a great time to look at one.”

What’s This Book About Anyway?

It’s 2076 and Kira Walker, 16, lives in Long Island with what is left of the human race after a devastating virus, released by the Partials, wiped out most of humanity. The Partials are engineered beings that look just like a human, but are not and they seem to only want to kill humans. The virus has severely damaged reproduction for humans with babies only surviving for just over 2 days.

Kira, a medic at a hospital, sets out to find a way to help babies live when her friend realizes she is pregnant. Kira believes that since the Partials released the virus, they must also be the answer. She is determined to capture a Partial and discover the cure.
