Book Review: The End

The End: An Apocalyptic Romance by Stephanie Albright: We all have it. That feeling that something bad is about to happen, something really bad. We don't like to think about it and we never talk about it, but still, we worry about it. Sometimes we can almost feel the Earth holding its breath and waiting. We are all preparing in our own ways. Some have built bunkers and gathered supplies, some have a contingency plan on paper or maybe just in their head but nothing concrete. Then there are those of us who are in the middle, we don’t have a well supplied bunker but we have a stash of things we might need when that day comes and a sort of plan to go with it. We think about how much we will miss things like chocolate bars, wine and coffee and brainstorm about ways to preserve the things we will miss the most. We decide where to go, if leaving is possible and consider the pros and cons of each possible location. The more pessimistic at heart are checking things off their bucket lists before it’s too late and maybe even devising an exit strategy. When Lucy and her sons wake up to a living nightmare on the last morning of their weekend camping trip, they must make the most of the people and resources surrounding them to endure, The End.

Lori's thoughts: I enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down because I wanted to know what happened! I found it realistic and often thought to myself -- something like this really could happen, and then what?!

The only complaint I had was that it seemed to read like a diary and I would have loved for the author to have been a little more descriptive in some of the things that happened. But that's just me, and my morbid curiosity.

The ending? Didn't see that one coming!

Bravo Stephanie!
