I really liked Gone. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise, I didn't expect it to be this way. Michael Grant already had me at the summary and I was not disappointed. The characters were pretty developed for 14 -or less- year olds and it was interesting to read how they struggled to survive despite everything. I found Caine, however, really funny -yeah, funny- with him wanting to be the ruler and all. Don't get me wrong but he was a big joke to me. I'm pretty sure all the 'bad ones' would have already turned against him if not for that power of his. I hope he doesn't get any more stupid in the next books. Diana is probably my favourite character, she's smart, strong and she knows exactly what to do when she senses trouble.It was a really good book overall, and I'd recommend it.
