The book is basically green energy propaganda poorly disguised as fiction. See all 6 questions about Empty….

Empty by Suzanne Weyn

Time references were awful. I didn’t suzannf connected to these characters in any way. The writing itself in Empty is not the best, however, its premise and the story it tells are definitely worth reading.

The town hears word of it and goes crazy trying to break in. But why Tom, Gwen are so brave?

I really adore the author for bringing such serious issues to the attention of the younger generations, who tend to be a little to comfortable inside their technology bubbles these suzaanne. Apr 25, Sarah Insomnia rated it it was ok. Lots of people afraid that the end of the world will come, and then they may go dead.

Empty by Suzanne Weyn (a Peak Oil Novel for Young Readers)

The writing in this novel is atrocious – major plot points are “summarized” at the ends of each chapter with newspaper articles that sound fake, unrealistic, and rushed – as if the author couldn’t be bothered to edit them properly before going to print. And then things get real bad when the superhurricane hits. When we think of things we can’t live without, we think of food, water, and shelter, but no one really realizes the importance of oil.


Who is Tom’s girlfriend: I would not be surprised if we were put into this same situation and having to relearn how to live our daily lives. She happens onto an alternate energy sourced home. The book had all the things I wanted when I felt like reading about the world going down the drain and what happens when stuff hits the fan.

It is used in the production of just about everything. The book was really realistic and true. A bunch of teens get in an all-out brawl because the rival school gets caught siphoning gas from their cars. Our main characters are a motley group of teenagers on break from high school. I recommend this book to people who aren’t very interested in the story but rather the facts stated.

Suzanne lived pretty close to the ocean and going to Jones Beach was one of her favorite activities Even today, if she goes too long without seeing t Suzanne Weyn grew up in Williston Park, Long Island, New York.

The idea is unique but more should have been done to make it a more engaging book to read. Mar 02, Darcy Leerhoff rated it really liked it Shelves: There actually three main character Tom, Gwen, and Niki those are the three two of them Tom and Gwen live in the same neighboorhood but Niki lives in Marietta shes wealthy Marietta and Sage Valley dont like each other.


Niki said to Tom she likes him.

I don’t even know what happened and truthfully, I don’t care what happened. The subject of oil dependence is an important one, and it deserves a better novel than this. She finds the mine and follows it in mepty a house but with solar panels, hydroponic food being grown.

Empty had van mij nog veel langer mogen duren! After reading this book, I realized that suzannr needs to take part in saving the planet. I forget his name – we’ll call him Carlos for the purposes of this review. She wanders into the woods in search of a mine that her brother and her used to play in as kids.

The characters also annoyed me a little from the dumb dmpty made. At least it provides abundant food for thought. Our local Borders went belly and so they had a several-weeks clearance sale.
