    1. Most everyone calls The Last Days a sequel to Westerfeld's novel Peeps. I suppose that, loosely, this is true. For my part, I think of this novel as more of a companion to Peeps because the main characters are completely different (don't worry though, characters from Peeps do turn up), the structure of then novel is different, and because the only way to get the most out of either book is to read the two of them together, back-to-back. So, this is a sequel in the same way that The Two Towers was [...]


    2. ****There may be some slight spoilers in this review which pertain to the novel Peeps. Please do not read this review if you haven't read Peeps.****The Last Days was a great sequel to Peeps. Full of quirky new charters and more mysteries to unfold, The Last Days picks up where Peeps left us, in a world slowly being taken over by the plague, garbage, cats, rats, and crazy HUGE arse worms. Westerfeld introduces us to Pearl, a music genius who just so happens to be a busy body, Moz, an aimless guit [...]


    3. I have mixed feelings about this book. I both loved it and hated it. On one hand, I thought it was an amazing sequel to Peeps. Scott Westerfeld is a great writer, with a very hypnotizing and mesmerizing writing style. His characters are real and well-developed, and I loved many of them. Scott knows how to grab my attention and keep me there. I really enjoyed the whole band thing- Westerfeld managed to capture the power of music down on paper in a way that no one has been able to do before. The b [...]


    4. Moz and buddy Zahler are struggling musicians in New York City, waiting for their big break. In the meantime, however, Moz witnesses a woman in a nearby apartment throwing all of her belongings out of her window. Amazed by these events, he barely manages to catch a 1975 Fender Stratocaster as it comes tumbling down toward the sidewalk. The girl who helps him, Pearl, turns out to be a musical genius, and offers the boys the opportunity of forming a band. How can they pass that up?Pearl knows the [...]


    5. Scott Westerfeld's writing is a gift to the senses. Unlike some books, where you're tempted to skip the large chunks of description between the relevant pieces of dialogue, The Last Days' descriptions are.sh. There are just no other words to describe it! The descriptions transport you right into Scott Westerfeld's kooky, paranormal world, overwhelming your senses and making you feel as if you were standing right alongside his characters :)


    6. This was so incredibly bad!! What the heck?! 300 pages of band practice were 1 not what I wanted from this and 2 unbelievably boring!


    7. Scott Westerfeld is arguably the master of modern-day sci-fi. His books, whether they are set in this present world, or in a future place, are always easy to relate to and understand. Even readers who have not read PEEPS (and you should) will enjoy this oneE LAST DAYS is essentially a story about five wannabe musicians getting together to form a band. There’s Pearl: musically talented, smart, rich, an entrepreneur, and a little bossy on the keyboard. There’s Moz, the talented but untrained g [...]


    8. The concept of a singer able to summon monsters is super cool. Loved seeing the characters from the first book again. Gained a new appreciation for musicians. Also the invented words are fun =)


    9. That was a satisfying ending. It was also really, really, really weird. It was an interesting take on vampires, and I'm not really big on vampires, and this totally put them in a whole new light, and I think I like these vampires more than the ones in 'other' books. I actually enjoyed this book more than Peeps, which is a companion novel, but the first one made less and more sense. But that's why you should read them in order, so you know about what happens in the first book and you can apply th [...]



    10. It took me a really long time to get around to reading The Last Days, which is funny because Peeps is one of my favourite books and this one is kind of a sequel to Peeps. Needless to say, while I loved Peeps, I didn’t think The Last Days was one of my favourite books.I liked The Last Days, it had some really interesting parts. At the same time, it just didn’t feel as awesome as Peeps did. I really liked the parts where you learnt a little bit more about the disease, or those who are parasite [...]


    11. Not as good as Peeps, but an interesting, entertaining sequel. The story kept me reading, but I had some issues with one person and the direction the plot went for some of the characters. I didn’t care AT ALL for the character of Minerva, although I really enjoyed everybody else. I liked Moz best, but didn’t like the evolution of things with his character. But, the ending was satisfying, the music/band stuff was fascinating, and the book held my interest.**SPOILERS**: I was not AT ALL happy [...]


    12. I read this very slowly, I enjoyed it even although I haven’t read Peeps. The whole story was inspirations of young musician’s gathering up a band and the lead vocalist really just getting over some mysterious sickness of her own. This sickness though I thought caused by her boyfriend relationship with Mark prior breaking up the band Nervous System and had complete mystery to me. I found the new lives of Minerva worth thinking about, which involved her becoming close to Moz. While the city s [...]


    13. I live in awe of this man's ability to world-build. In this series, in the Uglies collection, and in the Midnighters trilogy, he has created unique and fun worlds that are derivative of pretty much nobody (not an easy trick once, let alone three times). Uglies takes the world-building to the most extreme angle, with its own language and an Earth society definitely very far away from our own, but he can do it with things closer to home, too. The Last Days is a sequel to Peeps, one of the most uni [...]


    14. Posted to my Livejournal in April 2008, saved here for posterity:I liked this one less than Peeps, but perhaps that's to be expected in a sequel to a book I hardly found any fault in. Peeps was a great mix of smart humor and B-movie brilliance -- not only did Westerfeld totally rework the vampire myth, he used it to spin out a larger, crazier story about underground worm-like monsters soon to rise from the depths to devour mankind. Who would have thought vampires would save us all, right? The La [...]


    15. Ooh I always did wonder how the Night Watch would eliminate all those worms and wipe the parasite outta all those people Guess this books answers it. It was totally fawesome *Zahler's odd word*. Basically, this book is about how five teenagers make one song that manages to save the world. Funky huh? What displeased me about this book was the fact that Moz didn't end up with who I wanted him to. He ended up with Girl A, not Girl B *frowns* Sure, there was that little sort of friendship-y moment a [...]


    16. Spoiler alert!The sequel to Peeps, a parasitical disease is changing people into vampire-like mutants with enhanced powers. Cal is a carrier, but you don't see much of him here. Instead, you follow a guitar player as he meets some fellow musicians and puts together a band. But there's something unusual about the music they are making.It has weird rhythms, and if they play long enough it draws gigantic worm things from deep underground. The worms have a connection to the parasites.I enjoyed all t [...]


    17. Whether this was a sequel to Peeps or not, this book was a big disappointment compared to Peeps. I loved Peeps so I was hoping for more of the same from the author--unfortunatley, not so. This book was strange to say the least. Everything in it was over the top from the characters names to the description from the musicians POVs to the setting. It just sort of lost me. It switches POV so frequently that it is hard to follow the storyline let alone care about the characters that make up the story [...]


    18. Not as good as Peeps, lesssceral. But then I've always been better at relating to science geeks than to music people, although I've had a fair amount of experience with musicHowever. Must nitpick. Alana Ray keeps using factorial notation (n!) as referring to (n) + (n-1) + (n-2) + + 1. Factorial is (n)(n-1)(n-2) There's no name or notation for the addition sequence. The factorial notation - rather, phrasing the number relationship as an equation - emphasizes her ability with numbers, butdude, it [...]


    19. Probably would give more like 2.5. It was "ok" but I spent the first 1/2 of the book wondering what this one had to do with the book it was allegedly a sequel to. About 3/4 of the way through you finally come across some characters from the previous book and then after chapters and chapters of "building" it's over in a few pages. The story was "ok", the characters were "ok", the ending was "ok". I just think this had a lot more potential than it actually delivered.And if I ever have to hear the [...]


    20. This sequel to Peeps is fairly well-written, but it lacks the pacing and development of the first novel. I don't find the characters as likable, nor the story as compelling. Some plot points just seem weird to me, and far-fetched even for a novel about parasites that turn people into vampires. Still, it's enjoyable enough, an easy read overall. I highly recommend reading Peeps first, because the author seems to assume the reader knows the backstory from the first book. I would have found The Las [...]


    21. I think with fewer narrators (there were 5), I would have given this one more points. I really like the whole idea behind "vampires" in this book (they are caused by parasites). I liked the characters pretty well, but with so many different POVs, it was hard to get attached to any of them. And for me to really enjoy a book, I need to get attached to at least one of the characters. The action was all right, but there would likely have been more, again, with fewer narrators. Interesting, and still [...]


    22. This is a sequel to Peeps, but I didn't like it as much. I do generally like band books, so that wasn't it; I think it might have been the multiple POVs, which made it feel a little unfocused to me. And the characters I liked the most -- Alana Ray, Zahler -- got the least POV time. It just all felt a little sketchy, I guess: fun to read, but doesn't stick in my mind the way Peeps did.


    23. The first book in this series was great with Cal from Texas as the main character. In this book you are introduced to members of a band and each chapter is from their point of view. I liked the characters, but having so many characters made it a bit confusing. I felt like Pearl was the strongest character and maybe it should have been from her point of view for the whole book. That's my two cents, anyway.


    24. The sequel to one of my favorite vampire novels, Peeps. All new characters, though Cal and co. make appearances in the background, and all high school aged. It's a great tale, but by the end, when the apocalyptic battles have finally come, it's all related after the fact, rather than shown. It's effective, but annoying.


    25. The Last Days was an okay book but somewhere towards the middle the text began sounding like some sort of immature, badly-written fanfiction. Moz (the main male role) kept getting sick so many times that I was just hoping he'd die already, and Minerva was incredibly annoying. The book kept rapidly switching perspectives in a very annoying way, and the story was hardly original.


    26. i liked it. many people don't, but i thought it was interesting. not quite as suspenseful as peeps, but still nice.


    27. Didnt enjoy this book as much as the previous in the series. Partly because I didnt always like the split narration, and partly because Im just not that into stories about bands. There were several characters i thought were original and compelling (mostly Alana Ray) but did not appreciate some of the language the characters used. No Im not talking about swearing, Im talking about the multiple uses of the word retarded as an insult/negative, which is pretty true to how a lot of 2006 teenagers wou [...]
