    Title: The HuntedAuthor: Alex ShearerGenre / Bingo Board: Thriller, male characterThe Hunted is set in the future where living to 150 has become possible. While this initially sounds like a good idea, the problem is that this has come at the price of most people being unable to have children any more. The story follows Tarrin a child as he searches for his birth parents after escaping from Deet, the man who makes money by renting him out to childless families and who wants him to have an operati [...]

    I really enjoyed reading this book It's an easy read that compelled me to keep turning the pages I would definitely read this book again well done Alex Shearer


  • Gaia Smith

    Well reading this book I had no idea where it was going I didn't know if Tarrin was going to be kidnapped, or sold, and or run away from Deet. But I am really happy about how it ended. Just one question, how old was Tarrin? I couldn't work it out, but it is possible that I read over his age. Anyway it was a great book and I am definitely going to read it again, and maybe do a reading log on it :)

    An open letter to dystopians written before 'The Dystopocalypse'(and yes, that's what I'm calling it):You guys were usually pretty amazing. Most of you were genuinely creepy and yet very relatable, and I could really see something that happened in your stories happening to the society we have in the future. Now, here's the question. WHERE HAVE YOU GUYS GONE?Respectfully,HayleyAs it turns out, at the back of charity book stores.The Hunted was something I didn't really have high expectations for w [...]

    On the whole, an interesting dystopian world. The society is well-constructed and Shearer succeeds in really building this scenario to be solid. The plot wasn't bad either- an easy read, good to follow.However.Some concepts were recycled to the point they started to annoy me every time it came up. Prime example: the creepiness of PP's, among other things. Yes, it was solid, but it was only interesting the first time. It really feels like the whole book could be cut down to about half its origina [...]

    You never know what to expect with a dystopian novel I find. They can differ quite immensely. I have to say they are 1 of my favourite genres. I found this book at a charity shop for 50p so no harm, no foul.Having read the back of the book, I liked the sound of it. Set in a future where people can live to 150 if they take a anti aging pill, so people don't age past the day they took the pill, however do eventually die from organ failure. As mankind can live a lot longer, people stop being able t [...]

    Tarrin is a young boy who's on the brink of hitting puberty and becoming a teen. The danger in this is that when he does, he will no longer be in such high demand. Right now he makes a living working with his partner, or rather his leach, Deet, an adult who schedules appointments for adults (99% of the population) who want to have a kid for an afternoon because there are so few children born anymore. The world is set in the future where modern medicine has created a way for people to live indefi [...]


  • Robin

    Imagine there is a world where you do not age. Where everyone looks young and healthy until the day they die, which might be 150, or almost 200 yrs old even. Imagine that this eternal youth comes with a heavy price: not being able to bear children. Natural children are so rare that they became more precious than gold; the prized children are hunted, rented, purchased and sold. So rare the children are, they can be, willingly or against their will, ‘changed’ so that they stay children forever [...]

    The ending kind of disappointed me (And I am obsessed with great endings). The book as a whole was quite good, and the thrilling scenes have you turning page for page. I wish Alex Shearer would've have showed more of the emotional impact of running away from Deet, such as the one her showed when he was with the Hartingers. But yeah, apart from that, good book.


  • Eryn

    I think this is supposed to be a kid's book, but I don't see any child enjoying the cynicism. I liked the ideas about eternal youth and how it might not be all it seems to be. The ending was not to my liking however.


  • Hasini (Ink On Paper)
