Overview: The Farm

Product Description

Set in an eerie, post-apocalyptic world where a battle has begun against the vampire-like mutant called Ticks, the novel The Farm is the first novel in the trilogy written by Emily McKay. This novel depicts the story of twin sisters fighting for their survival in a world full of chaos. The Farm in the story is a place where fear and paranoia rules. For Lily and her sister Mel, the farm is the only place that they have. The storyline and the picturization of the characters in this novel have been done with quite finesse. This novel was published in August, 2012 and within a year it gained a lot of appreciations. Emily received the RITA® Award (Romance Writers of America Award) for Best Young Adult Romance for this novel in 2013.

Story of Survival Amongst Chaos

In the world before the apocalypse, where there were no vampires devouring humans in a horde across America, life was certainly different and peaceful for Lily and her twin sister Mel. But now, all the surviving humans are either quarantined or rounded up behind electric fences. The Farms happen to be their only retreat where they are trying to survive by turning up on each other. Beyond the proximity of these fences awaits a fate for these people, which is very frightening. When all this was happening, the twin sisters developed a plan for survival. Mel is shown to be autistic that helps her to notice things, which others cannot. With her help, Lily gathers all the things they need to escape and later is helped by a friend named Carter, who was Lily's schoolmate. Since Carter has managed to evade capture, he has valuable intelligence of the world outside. However, Carter is shown to have his own agenda like all others in the farm. He knows that something is there that is even more dangerous and hazardous to the human race than the Ticks (the vampires).

    Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…

    My thoughts:
    The Farm is set in the future. The United State (maybe the world) has fallen into chaos. A virus has been unleashed that turns people into monsters. They call them Ticks. Ticks are like a cross between zombies and vampires and a wild animal. They don't eat your brains, but rather your beating heart. The virus either kills you or turns you into these monsters. And for some reason the Ticks are drawn to teenagers. So the teens are gathered and put into farms to be kept safe from the Ticks. But the Farms are not what they seem to be. Not only that, but Lily and Mel have attracted the attention of someone else.

    Lily is a teenager living on one of the Farms along with her sister Mel. Lily knows something is not right with what is going on. So she plans to escape, with her sister, to Canada. Lily and Mel are twins but Mel is autistic. Even though Mel is capable, she still needs assistance from Lily. And the only people they can count on is each other. That is until Carter shows up.

    This story is told through three different perspectives: Lily, Mel, and Carter. I found this to be interesting. Especially from Mel's point of view. She doesn't see the world like everyone else. She seems more intuitive than most people, but her autism makes it hard to communicate her feelings. I do wish Emily McKay would have spent more time in Mel's mind. Lily's character frustrated me at times. She's stubborn and once she gets her mind set, she won't listen to reason and does what she wants despite advice to do otherwise.

    The story line is pretty exciting. It's very action-packed. In a way it reminded me of The Hunger Games. Not so much for the story line but for the intense, nail-biting scenes. I found myself glued to the pages as the story unfolded. This is not my usual type of read, but I'm glad I took a chance and read it. Because if not, I would have missed out on quite a story.
