Part of Peeps series by Scott Westerfeld. Pillows with tasseled edges. Dolls and desk lamps. Books fluttering like crash-landing birds. A jar full of pens and pencils.

Part of Peeps series by Scott Westerfeld. Two cheap wooden chairs, smashed first against the window frame so they'd fit through. Fewer students showed up for classes every day, and those that were still around were all planning some kind of escape from the city. The infrastructure was already failing. All I could do was shake my head about that last part. The problem for Pearl was, she'd really given Moz something. She'd stripped away his shell, had shown him a way to get everything he really wanted, had helped him find a focus that he'd been too lame to discover for himself.

The Last Days, a horror novel by Scott Westerfeld, is a companion book to Peeps. It takes place in New York, during the end of civilization hinted upon in Peeps. The narrative focuses around Moz, Zahler, Pearl, Alana Ray and Minerva, in an apocalyptic New York. Odd occurrences are taking place, the sewers are gushing black water, the earth shakes, and people are inexplicably going mad.

The Last Days (The second book in the Peeps series) Scott Westerfeld To Jazza first reader and best friend PART I INFLUENCES Ever hear this charming little rhyme?. A pocket full of posies. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down. Some people say that this poem is about the Black Death, the fourteenth-century plague that killed 100 million people. Here’s the theory: was an early symptom of plague: a circular rash of red skin. Two cheap wooden chairs, smashed first against the window frame so they’d fit through.

The last book had a lot of parasite details, and this book had a lot of band and music details. Another fun, interesting YA novel by Scott Westerfeld. IMO, Peeps was better than TLD and different, kind of, but don't get me wrong, TLD is still really good

The last book had a lot of parasite details, and this book had a lot of band and music details. I really enjoyed the new characters once I got used to them, though I didn't feel that I really got to know each of them as well as in Peeps, though with five people to keep up with, that is understandable. I guess what I am trying to say is that I enjoyed this book, but didn't connect to it as deeply as I did his Uglies series or Peeps. IMO, Peeps was better than TLD and different, kind of, but don't get me wrong, TLD is still really good. It's cool how Westerfeld's written each chapter from a different character's point of view.

MADNESS -MINERVA- Pearl was glowing. Her face shimmered as the door swung closed, setting the candle flickering jaggedly. You’re shiny, I murmured, squinting. She swallowed, licking her upper li. .I could smell her nervous saltiness. Yeah, middle of August. Pearl frowned, even though I’d been right. I closed my eyes, remembering April, May. all the way up to graduation. Pearl was jealous because she had to go back to Juilliard next year, though everyone else in the Nerv- The thing inside me flinched

Ok, so I will just be upfront here. I loved Peeps, and I was disappointed on the first page of this that it was not more of the same characters. Even though the Peeps characters appear, they are side characters, not the stars, which made me grumpy from the get-go. I like getting to know a character and then sticking with them for a bit.

That said, once I stopped being grouchy that the people I had come to love in the last book weren't here, I began enjoying this book a lot. The last book had a lot of parasite details, and this book had a lot of band and music details.

I really enjoyed the new characters once I got used to them, though I didn't feel that I really got to know each of them as well as in Peeps, though with five people to keep up with, that is understandable.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I enjoyed this book, but didn't connect to it as deeply as I did his Uglies series or Peeps. So if you have read all of those and need something new to read, I'd recommend this, because 4-star Westerfeld is a hell of a lot better than 5-star someone else, but if you haven't finished the Uglies series and Peeps, then read those all first, because this is slightly less good.

After reading the Uglies series, I was really disappointed by this novel. The story had a lot of potential but it just didn't fulfill that for me. One of my biggest issues was the five different narrators. I felt I wasn't getting to know the narrators very well because each one only turned up roughly every five chapters and they all started to sound the same after a few chapters (like all adopting each others slang - does fawesome sound wrong to anyone else?) so I had to keep flicking back to the start of the chapter to work out who was talking. Once or twice would have been okay but it was more like every second chapter. It also made it easy to put the book down and ended up taking me a lot longer to finish than other books I've read recently.

My other major issues were that the climax was sabotaged by the early appearance of the worm in the tunnel so I'd already figured that it was the worms causing all the chaos so the concert was a bit of a letdown. I also felt like a lot of things were left hanging that should have been tied up. The greatest of these for me was: What happened to the cat??? Min seemed so worried about him and then nothing??? So much set up for so little return.

i was reading this book expecting an EPIC ending, and for about 3/4 of the book it seemed as though i would get that. then things sort of came to a dead end after they figured out how to kill off the worms. after that it was all downhill from there. the ending was literally rushed. no detail whatsoever and i was extremely disappointed. it was the weakest ending i have ever read to what seemed like a great series. do urself a favor, dont waste a single penny on this last book.just know that the worms die.the end.

Another fun, interesting YA novel by Scott Westerfeld. IMO, Peeps was better than TLD and different, kind of, but don't get me wrong, TLD is still really good. It's cool how Westerfeld's written each chapter from a different character's point of view. Kinda wish he'd leave certain things out of his novels like "horny" and stuff like that, but over-all it's a pretty "fawesome" story. I'd recommend all of Westerfeld's books for YA readers and their parents despite the fact that he uses a bit of sexual stuff in his stories. Check out his website and blog for interesting bits of "fool" stuff. ;)

HE's done it again. Creating a brilliant fast paced sequal to Peeps. The only down side was the story is about a completely different set of characters. The bonding that we formed for the original characters of Peeps was touch on ever so briefly twice in the story. I found it hard to enjoy these characters as much as those of Peeps and other Westerfield Novels. The story was great, and the ending resolved all problems presented. All and all a fun read.

Great book. I'd say is less of a sequel and more of a parrell book to Peeps. All new main characters and great returning characters from Peeps.

While this is the sequel to Peeps, Cal and Lace do not make an appearance until more than halfway through the book. This book focuses on the interactions of five people who become members of a band and each chapter is told from one of their points of view, in first person. Sometimes, it was hard to remember who was speaking and this was very confusing. I did like the visual descriptions of the music, but the writing style did not seem quite as entertaining as in Peeps. I was disappointed in this as a sequel, but at least it did have a satisfactory ending.
I am hooked on Scott Westerfeld books. I own almost everything he has wrote and he is by far my favorite author. I like how not every book is the same style but they are all just as interesting.
