Product Description

Product Description

The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic series: THE ENDING SERIES.

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, "they" thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family...they're all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them--with the rest of the world--but I didn't. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I'd ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O'Connor, I'm twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We've all had to start over. I've been stripped of my home, my dreams...all that is me. I'm someone else now--broken and changed. Other survivors' memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won't let them consume me. I can't. My name is Zoe Cartwright, I'm twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

We've been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing--we'll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we're strong...we're survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.

*Contains some mature content and language*

This review, as well as many more, can also be found on my blog, The Baking Bookworm (www.thebakingbookworm.blogspot.ca).

My Review: Over the past few years I've come to enjoy post-apocalyptic reads. Nothing makes you feel better about your day-to-day struggles than reading about the world ending, am I right?

While After The Ending sounded like it had all the right stuff to make a good read (and start to a new series) unfortunately it didn't appeal to me for several reasons. First of all, while the premise was interesting I just didn't feel like there was enough energy and substance behind the idea. I honestly had a very hard time finishing this book.

I also had no emotional connection with the two main characters, Dani and Zoe. They were described as 26 year old women but the voices, tone and vocabulary that they used made them seem more like flighty teenagers (my apologies to teen girls everywhere for the comparison). Imagine the Gretchen Weiner and Karen Smith characters from Mean Girls as central characters in a post-apocalyptic read. Ya, not so 'fetch'.

These two women come off as very self-centred as they complain about having to take time to find the loved ones of the people who are helping them to safety. Instead they prefer to focus their time getting art supplies instead of valuable survival gear (say wha?!?), complaining about having to share a laptop and flirting with guys after pretty much everyone they know has been killed by a horrible illness. This honestly felt to me like Post Apocalyptic 90210 focusing on the angst of "teens" instead of the world ending and how these 26 year olds dealt with the aftermath. If the only way to save the world is to hook up with someone then Dani and Zoe are on the right track.

**possible spoiler alert** This started out strong for me. As a post-apocalyptic fan I was ready for some serious flu action, rounded out nicely with some supernatural powers. Unfortunately, it fizzled not long after.

I have a medium tolerance for romance, but a low tolerance for things that don't make sense.

The emails back and forth, although a tried and true literary technique, totally lost their point after a while. Initially they seemed to serve the purpose of filling in some of the blanks, but eventually they were just a recap of the previoius chapter. Also - they became more and more adolescent as they went on. The phrasing etc was eerily similar to the notes I passed in high school. Additionally - this is the texting age. Texts, from a practical standpoint, would have made a lot more sense.

The characters seem to be the same person. I'd often get lost when reading a chapter, as I'd forget which of the women I was reading about. There's no differentiation in their voices and it was a welcome relief when one of them would mention a hobby or interest that the other didn't share.

I had a difficult time identifying why they were doing what they were doing. They would burst into tears for no reason at various points. I'd be fine with this if there was some sort of identifying reason for it - are they overwhelmed? Is it because of their budding Abilities? What's going on?

There were some distressing parallels in the stories of the main characters. They both have a pseudo love triangle going on? They both have attempts made on their lives by a psycho jealous nutjob?

The relationships between the characters don't seem to make a lot of sense either.

Watching your friends and co-workers slowly die from a massive flu outbreak around you, can drive anyone to suicide. Dani and Zoe are two young women that find comfort in knowing each other is doing okay. While both women try to help each other locate family members, they fall ill themselves. This is a story about struggle after an outbreak. Struggle to keep courage, hope and humanity alive.
Both women end up leaving their homes on opposite sides of the country to reach one another. Zoe’s military personnel brother find’s Dani holding on by a thread of her life and nurses her back to health before heading off in the new world. The group runs into many obstacles as they stop at each person’s home town that is in the group looking for surviving family members. Zoe also heads out and runs into her own group of military personnel. They also run into obstacles while slowly discover that all the surviving people may have abilities. As this is a sign of both weakness and a bit of a freak show, both girls keep it to themselves slowly opening up as more abilities begin to emerge. Both the women keep connected though e-mail as the phones signals no longer are up and running but even then as more time passes the internet begins to cut in and out as well.
If you follow my mini reviews you know I am not a fan of two characters telling the story. It is something I am getting used to as so many newer books coming out seem to be having multiple POV’s. I very much enjoyed this book. I kept forgetting the women were 26 years old maybe around 21-22 I would have put them down for. If you are looking for a fast paste adventure this isn’t for you. If you are looking for a book about growing and a journey then I would highly recommend it. I felt the situations both women were put in, were real and terrifying. Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue portrays a new post apocalyptic world with vivid descriptions making the book come alive before your eyes. I cannot wait for the second installment.
