Product Description

Product Description

The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic series, The Ending.
 
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put down. April 10 2014

Found this story impossibly entertaining. The main characters are likable, the supporting all have something to offer and there is constantly something happening that makes you want to read on. Can't wait to start the next one :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with plot, pace & characters Oct. 14 2013
By The Baking Bookworm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 27 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
**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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Post-Apocalyptic Book May 15 2013
By acas29
Format:Kindle Edition
Overall, I liked this book. It had a good concept and somewhat likeable characters. I thought Dani and Zoe each had a distinctive voice in the narrative, which sometimes with multi POVs they end up sounding the same. I liked how Dani and Zoe wrote emails to each other for most of the book. I did find it unlikely that the power would be down, but the internet would still be up? But this is fiction and sometimes requires a little imagination. The emails were where I felt the most emotion from Dani. For example, when Cam died it just felt like bad acting on Dani's part. She said all the right stuff, but I didn't feel anything for her until she wrote to Zoe and told her about Cam dying.

When you actually think about the concept that 90% of the population is dead it is just saddening. Everyone who has survived has lost multiple loved ones. There were no children in the book, because the young didn't have the antibodies to survive. One of the survivors lost her kids and husband. You can see why none of the survivors wanted to talk about the "Before."

The Crazies were psychotic. You could tell there was something wrong with them even before they did something. They were creepy and unstable. But what kept urging me on reading was what they did. Each Crazy was unique and reacted to the situation differently.

Dani's ability was awesome! I didn't know how I was going to feel about the Abilities spin to this book. It definitely was different, but I think I really liked it. When she was attacked it was amazing how the animals circled around her to protect her. She really was like a Disney Princess.

Even though both women were separated for the majority of the book they overcame similar hurdles and both found a relationship.
