    1. This was a great adventure and I enjoyed it much than Vitro Although all three books feature young females in an exotic location fighting Corpus, they are all three quite different Kalahari was much of an adventure and story of survival than anything else It was very high suspense and I really enjoyed it.There was much of a romance than Vitro Although Sam was not as swoon worthy as Eio, he was still very sweet Sarah was pretty incredible I loved Pia, but Sarah was impressive too I am not sure [...]


    2. Okay, time for a thoughtful review.I m not going to lie to you guys at all I didn t expect anything from this book This is not the kind of book I d pick up on a whim or anything I ve never heard much about the series, so it wouldn t have gotten my attention that way, either I probably would have added this to my never ending TBR list, as I do with practically every new YA book, but I doubt I would ve ordered it from anywhere.What a disappointment that would ve been, right So right now, you can i [...]


    3. I definitely have a soft spot for Khoury s Corpus series They re like companion books, really, but each time a new one comes out, I just know that I ll have to read it and that I ll really enjoy it.Why is this Well, because I know her books will always have a dash of romance, a couple of interesting characters, an awesome setting, some aspect of morality depth, and most importantly, a whole heap of what I like to call Scientist Sneakery Yep, certainly sounds like a term I coined What links the [...]



    4. This definitely wasn t my type of read i wouldn t have read it if I hadn t needed to for a challenge The characters were okay but not real enjoyable They all were so different from each other So of course when things got rough it was hard for everyone to get things done I m just glad that everything worked out in the end.



    5. Jessica Khoury has returned to the world where Corpus exists and is on the verge of eerie scientific experimentation The third installment in this companion series follows Sarah, a girl who has lived all over the world, in all sorts of conditions while her parents recorded their scientific discoveries Four months after her mother s death, five teenagers arrive to learn about life in the Kalahari desert Suddenly, they re left alone after Sarah s dad and Theo, one of her parents friends, go lookin [...]


    6. This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdI received an ecopy of this book via First to Read in exchange for an honest review THOUGHTSI ve read and loved all of Jessica Khoury s other books, but this one has to be my favorite so far I went into this book without knowing anything about it, besides the setting and the fact that it has something to do with experiments the latter was just a guess, it is a Corpus book after all I love going through books knowing little to nothing about [...]


    7. Fasten your seat belts for the ride of your life This is a super, high octane, fast paced novel right out of the gate After a brief introductory the book goes from 0 60 in 13 flat First, poachers are sited then her dad goes to track them then an urgent call then Sarah and crew set out for him and we don t look back The book moves from crisis to crisis in a heart stopping adventure and action thriller The book is written in a journal style with Sarah chronicling her search for her dad and the unr [...]


    8. I really enjoyed this third Corpus book I think I liked it than the second I especially enjoyed the setting as I don t know anything about the Kalahari However, Origin is still my favorite because we learned about Corpus and the people who worked for them I feel like the last two books are mostly just teens who are constantly in danger in an unusual place I would like a little of the science Maybe I preferred Origin because the main character was on the inside where the last two books the mai [...]


    9. I really liked Kalahari It started off slow but the story built up There were so many unanswered questions in the story but it all came together in the end It was a real OHHHH I GET IT moment It had just the right amount of romance too it wasn t over powering the rest of the story The Kalahari desert in general seems like a very serene place I love the story and the way it was written I really enjoyed the book and hope to read of Jessica Khoury s books soon.



    10. Kalahari is about a group of five teens who go on an educational safari trip, and they are sent to the camp where Sarah Carmichael, her dad, and another researcher, Theo live The first night the teens are their, Sarah s dad hears that their are poachers in the area, and he and Theo go looking for them Before he leaves, he tells Sarah that he ll be back before dark When it started to get dark, Sarah started to get worried, and told the group that hey were all gonna go looking for her dad and Theo [...]

    12. I was unaware that this was part of a series I just read it by itself But it was still very good and I understood everything This was a pretty exciting read Rating equals 4 stars


    13. I suppose the longer I put off reviewing a book, the less I realize I have to say about it Especially since there really wasn t much to say about it to begin with at least not much than what I ve already written in my Pre Review Thoughts.So I guess, in short, Kalahari was an interesting and exciting read once the story got going And I might even chance to say that it is the most enjoyable of the three Corpus books at least in my opinion, it is.But again, that is after the story got going, and a [...]


    14. 3.8 starsSo first I want to say that as I was adding this book to my shelf, I realized that it s the 3rd in the Corpus series But it can totally be read on its own I didn t read the first two and didn t feel like I was missing anything Everything made sense Sarah has been raised to respect the earth and its animal inhabitants She was raised by scientist parents and the animals they love and study are the closest things she s had to real friends her age But a couple of months after her mother s a [...]


    15. The book Kalahari by Jessica Khoury is a survival and science fiction book It is not part of a series Kalahari is a book about how these teens and a tourist go on a safari when something terrible happens and they get stranded in the Kalahari desert, with no water and limited supplies It is up to the tourist to keep the teens safe and not die of dehydration in the desert Can the tourist do it Read the book to find out I rate this book a 6 out of 10 because I like survival books, but it took a cou [...]


    16. Kalahari is the third and final or not final book in the Corpus series, a companion to Origin and Vitro I m not sure if this is happening at the same time or after those books There are no shared characters, but Strauss was mentioned once Sarah and her father live in the Kalahari Her father is a zoologist originally from New Zealand, and is studying the migration of animals Sarah s mother died four month ago in an accident, and she was from North Carolina originally Five teens arrive at their ca [...]


    17. I ve read the previous two books in this series although they re not connected by much than the Corpus labs and could probably be read out of order and enjoyed both of them Now we re on the third book and I m beginning to get a sense of a pattern, each of these books involve interesting science experiments usually gone a bit awry and very cool and often wild settings I really loved Origin and although I didn t enjoy Vitro quite as much, Kalahari really made up for it Not only is it a book that [...]


    18. I received an ARC copy of this book through firsttoread I was not paid to write this review.I read Jessica Khoury s Kalahari pretty much in one sitting It is fast paced and continuously moving, with twists and turns that will draw in the reader and keep them there until they finish the book The research that went into this novel is far above average It is obvious that Khoury put a great deal of effort into building the environment of the Kalahari properly, and that pays off by making this a very [...]


    19. I read this book in one day, although that was probably due to the fact that I had four ish hours to kill and nothing else to do but read Some books, when I m in that situation, just make me want to throw them across the room, but it s a testament toKalaharithat it kept me entertained I don t know what it is about the book, it s just not really a page turner But that isn t to say it s not good, because it definitely was.The writing was great, of course I ve loved the other Corpus books, and if I [...]


    20. My Take on This Journey Kalahari, by Jessica Khoury, is the third novel in the Corpus Series Ms Khoury is at the top of her game in this dynamic, sensational, journey of a lifetime Not only has Ms Khoury created a fast paced, and adventurous timeline, but she has also painted a phenomenal setting with a water color tapestry of vivid imagery The reader can easily visualize these real life characters, and animals, who are sensationally brought to life Ty has gone after poachers, but doesn t return [...]


    21. I received a free copy of this book through First Reads program in exchange for a review I was excited to read a new installment of the Corpus books, after enjoying Origin immensely That being said, I had high hopes for this book, and was disappointed in it from the very beginning Perhaps I am just growing out of my enjoyment of young adult fiction, or I am just really getting tired of how shallow so much of it seems to be getting lately In any case, this book was a disappointment from the first [...]


    22. A 3.5 rounded up for the interesting, unusual setting.The thing that stands out to me most about this book is the similarity toSilver Each has a disease that s kind of nanobot like that takes over animals people, turns them silver, makes them violent, and can be spread from host to host like a shiny zombie virus I appreciate that spoilers this book actually provides a cure, while Silver does not and ends on a pretty grim note.I found Sarah frustrating at first She s antisocial, feeling aloof and [...]


    23. I don t like Science Fiction, it s really not my thing However, when I got my hands on Jessica Khoury s Vitro, I surprisingly really enjoyed it When I heard about Kalahari, I was super excited to read it Kalahari brings everything that I have come to expect in Jessica s books Danger, excitement, an awesome unique main character, great secondary charactersLiterally everything.Kalahari is easily one of the most original books I have ever read Nothing even comes close to the ideas in Kalahari The m [...]


    24. Kalahari is about a girl, Sarah, that has grew up traveling the world with her parents She has never gone to a school, and knows about everything you could know about how to survive in the wild But when she unexpectedly finds her mom dead, she and her father have to find some money They decided to invite 5 rich teens out on a safari expedition But when her father goes missing from trying to track down poachers, it is up to her to take care of the self centered guests While tracking her dad throu [...]


    25. This book was very interesting its starts off with a girl who is stationed in the Kalahari semi desert and to resume the funding of their project they are showing some city people some of the scenery, and wildlife Stuff hits the fan when her father leaves them to go chase the poachers and doesn t come back I loved the fact that it seems like it might actually happen and the action is nailbiting I was always nervous because it looked like wherever the characters went danger was always just around [...]


    26. I was really disappointed with this book There were a lot of plot holes and things that just didn t sit well with me The setting and pacing were good, though Many readers will love Sarah and will love the fast paced action It wasn t for me but the adventure here will be appreciated by others.Also, I will note that although this is the third book in a series, it can be read as a standalone It is not necessary to read this series in order.My full review will be posted on my blog on 2 24 15 You can [...]


    27. This is a fast paced novel right from the start First, poachers are sited then her dad goes to track them then an urgent call then Sarah and crew set out for him and we don t look back.Sarah lives in the bush of the Kalahari with her father, and while still reeling from the tragic death of her mother, she is forced to take responsibility for five other teenagers in order to receive funding for their research station was action packed from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat till the ver [...]
