The Meme Plague (Memento Nora, #3)

You, my friend, have been hacked.It begins with the name JONAS W. on the side of a cardboard coffin—right before the funeral procession blows up. Then it’s the whisper in the back of Micah’s head: Your father betrayed his country. You can’t always trust your own brain. Not when you have one of the mayor’s mandatory chips in your skull. Micah knows that the chip developed by TFC (the corporation that runs the Therapeutic Forgetting Clini...

    As a dystopian series, The Meme Plague has enough going for it to outweigh the weaknesses. Most importantly, this series is not a romance novel masquerading as genre fiction, instead focusing on world building and issues very closely linked to the evils of the current political system in a far too close and possible future. I've enjoyed the whole of the trilogy, as quick reads that break from some of the common YA tropes.For those who are unfamil...

    Summary (probably contains spoilers, especially if you have not read the first two books):This is the third book in the Memento Nora series, but that doesn't actually matter. Within this book, Micah, Nora, Aiden, and Velvet each tell their final adventures with the MemeNet.Micah and his mom are finally in a new place to live, off the streets. He doesn't want to screw things up for her, so he goes to school obediently, but all of a sudden this mem...

    I was so excited to find this on the shelf at the library. I loved memento Nora and the forgetting curve, and I love this one too. Smibert has done a fabulous job of creating a society that is just one step removed from our own. It has become quite clear that the government is cooperating with the TFC corporation to gain power. They are attacking other countries as well, and creating power shortages to encourage people to vote for the new Patriot...

    The subject of youth rebellion has appeared as the plot in many YA books over the past few years. But this one series has most certainly gone beyond the same-old, same-old when it comes to the subject. Not since the extremely popular ‘Maze Runner’ series has a plot been so intense.For those who are unaware, Books I and II introduced readers to an array of characters that were beyond intelligent. They have each gone through something tragic, w...

    As I’m sitting here preparing to write my review of Meme Plague, I’m asking myself, “What was important in this book?” And, unfortunately my answer seems to be, “Not much.” After really enjoying Memento Nora and The Forgetting Curve, I found the third book, Meme Plague to be somewhat of a filler. We experience some character development, but not much action, and not much has changed for our characters. this happens in the middle book,...

    For those of you who fell in love with Angie Smibert’s series Memento Nora, the saga continues with the third installation, The Meme Plague that released today, August 13, 2013. The Meme Plague delivers some exciting new character development as well as resumes the quest to retrieve lost memories from the TFC (Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic). Let me start by saying that compared to Memento Nora and The Forgetting Curve, The Meme Plague does not ...

    i absolutely love these! they are so messed up, so creative and so fun to read about. this one was probably my favourite of the 3 so far, because everything form the first two just came together perfectly and sort of melded into one amazing story. i especially liked all of the matrix references (because, face it, that was one goddamn awesome movie) and i enjoyed having so much stuff packed into only a couple hundred pages. that character, as usua...

    This series was new to me until a few months ago and I swear ive been meaning to write this review but its been sitting in a notebook that I've been half dreading to go through and post them all up.This little dystopian series is rather interesting, just think matrix and crazy syfy plots. But rather interesting stuff. All three books were rather quick reads for me but worth it gave me light little edgy exciting sit downs. The thirds one is by far...

    TFC can take your cares away, but you’ll find it difficult to come back to who you are in Angie Smibert’s The Meme Plague.Nora and Micah have a bigger role in this novel than book two. The characters face very difficult decisions as they go against TFC and the government. The upcoming elections don’t ease their problems either. As the group struggles to hold onto who they are, they are facing a world that they might not be able to change.Al...

    This is a YA series that shares a lot of qualities with dystopian novels such as 1984 and Brave New World. If you are looking at it relative to these other works, it offers relatively little that is novel. But if you are looking at it as a gateway drug to more mature dystopian novels it is a powerful, yet digestable introduction to the genre.

    Plot: 3 1/2 stars Characters:4 stars Style: 4 stars Pace: 3 1/2 starsNow to impatiently wait for the next one, because there's too many dangling threads. This one didn't have nearly as much of a plot arc as the second, but it was still enjoyable.

    A good ending to the series and an enjoyable read. A bit too many matrix references for me, but apart from that it was good.
