The Hunt (Atlanta Burns #2) Reviews
If I was teaching a class on similes and metaphors, I'd have my students read Wendig's work. This book, like Atlanta Burns is chock full of great ones like "cheap pink wine that tastes like Kool-Aid mixed with some stripper's perfume." Another fascinating, dark adventure with a compelling character. I wish her gang got to do more than just give her advice and the super complex mystery gets solved with lots of hazy details (what was the deal with Samantha's parents?) but overall a strong follow u ...more
She shot off a pedophile's parts, she shot down a white supremacist, she shut down a dogfighting ring - Atlanta Burns is at it again, this time going after a trafficking ring hidden in plain sight. After all, who would expect a multi-billion-dollar fracking corporation, all set to offer good jobs and boost the local economy while also miraculously helping the environment, to be selling gambling and drugged, underage girls on the side?
Yeah, subtlety has never been high on this series' list of pri ...more
Wendig's characters are vivid and masterfully drawn. Both Atlanta Burns books are fast-paced and exciting without being overly dramatic. A kick-ass teenage girl like Atlanta leaves me feeling far more empowered than any lasso-wielding superhero.
Another adrenaline rush with Atlanta Burns. It's good to see her becoming more active socially and begin to get closer to her Mama. Once again we have conspiracies, bad men and retribution - a little bit of Blue Velvet in Pennsylvania. Unlike Kathy Reichs' heroine Temperance Brennan, who has a nasty habit of being hit over the head in the penultimate chapter of every book, I do hope Atlanta starts to plan her end game more carefully in the next volume, otherwise she risks becoming just another w ...more
I read the first book in this 2-book series, Atlanta Burns, and LOVED it. I thought the teen protagonist was portrayed uniquely and looked forward to hearing more from her.
The Hunt started out slowly for me, and at times I was concerned that it would digress into a pulpit for shouting social reform, instead of a telling more of Atlanta's journey. Although there was a fair bit of activism, the 2nd quarter or so picked up pace and kept me hooked through the end.
I thought that Mr. Wendig's portraya ...more
I think I'd be enjoying books more if Atlanta had super-powers; something to explain why her life is a constant over-the-top mess and yet she always emerges both victorious and relatively unharmed. They're fun (in a bleak, depressing, the world-is-shit kind of way), but I honestly can't tell if the setting is meant to be tongue-in-cheek or not.
A knockout ass-kicking fest
In a word, this book was outstanding. I love Atlanta Burns. She's a broken girl, but tough as nails, and even at her worst, she's a lot better person than almost anyone else in the book. She doesn't always go looking for trouble, but even when she doesn't, it seems to find her. Gripping tale. Disgusting bad guys. Absolutely worth a read! I'm hoping we get another Atlanta Burns book soon!
Atlanta is a quirky character and it is fun to read about her escapades. I feel it is a great book for teenagers.
