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.

**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.

Absolute rubbish. This novel was misrepresented as apocalyptic science fiction. It's not it's totally focussed on sexual descriptions of male/female feelings. Was worth the purchase price of "free"

Always love this kind of writing where human survival takes twists and turns. The Abilities are an interesting twist on a post apocalyptic world.

This yarn is set in a disease decimated post apocalyptic world where survivors attempt to....well....survive. It's a familiar story, just with new characters. I'd read about 25% of the book and just gave up. While the book's description says it's 428 pages long, its really only about half that as pretty well everything that occurs in the story was then just rehashed again in emails between the two female principals as they kept each other up to date as to what was happening in their respective corners of the USA. (That together with other odds and sods of course) This could have been avoided and the story line made more palatable by just saying something like "I brought Dani/Zoe up to date on events here + whatever". By the way, If there's no hydro, how is the internet still up? Regardless, as it is, this format makes for a rather boring read, and, despite the enticement of the story's Amazon description, it became too ponderous and mind numbing to keep plowing through. At the end of the day, I just didn't feel like reading more of what had become a needlessly drawn out story that didn't present anything particularly "new" to the genre. Reading it, that is, twice.......at the same time.

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.
