Overview

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.

    Ok cannot give this book more than 3 stars because everyone acts like teenagers instead of adults approaching thirty and in some cases they are in their thirty's! How old is the author? 16? Grown adults don't act this way! The storyline is good kudos to the author's vivid imagination but as a fifty four year old woman these people really need to grow up!

    Enjoyable

    An enjoyable read once you get past the thought that the characters are not teens but adults. The characters mannerisms and speech reflect a teenage mindset so I ended up reading it with the thought they were teens.

    Just Not Super Awesome

    Ok the story itself is alright. I like the paranormal aspect, but these main characters, UGH. Definitely feels like an average YA novel. The girls cry way too much and the "men" are so gruff and not very likeable. Everyone is like 25+ yet exhibit behaviors of the average high schooler. Really pulled me out of the story. I skimmed over several parts and didn't miss a thing. I doubt I will bother with the rest of the series. Too adolescent.

    This book is a mess. The plot is disjointed and ridiculous. The characters are so silly and stupid it almost makes me angry. It is the end of the world and all the two main characters do for 400 pages is text back and forth about boy friend issues. Does this makes sense to anyone? The people giving good reviews were either paid or are related to the writer. I haven't been this (negatively) worked up about a book for years. Don't read...just delete. Jp

    Around page 256 the previous +60 pages loop around and start over again, right in the middle of the story! Lousy editing job, or perhaps they just want the page count to appear higher than it actually is...

    I honestly tried to finish this book and I made it more than halfway through, but I just couldn't read anymore. The description this novel sounded very interesting and I'm a huge fan of dystopian/post-apocalyptic novels. I suspect there may even be a good story in this book somewhere, but I just couldn't get past the immaturity of the characters. Until I read their ages, I honestly thought they were teenagers due to their thoughts and actions. The females in this story couldn't walk into a room without thinking about who they just slept with, who they wanted to sleep with next, and who in that room wanted to sleep with them. They also apparently needed to be rescued by some guy every 10 pages or so and I just grew tired of reading about it. If everyone I cared about was dead or I was unsure of their safety and I was in these characters' situation, my sex life wouldn't be at the top of my list of priorities. Very shallow, immature, and unbelievable characters. The description of this novel is very misleading. 




    I received a digital version of this book from NetGalley.

    I'm always up for a dystopian novel...and this was a good book...just not very plausible in some instances. 




    "What would you do if what you thought was the flu, killed 90% of the population. What would you do if you got sick but didn't die, and ended up with new ability. What would you do, to get to you love ones? save your loved ones? Well Dani and Zoe are about to find out."




    I actually really enjoyed this book, most of the time. The two main characters were fun to read, and really came into their own as the book progresses. The book was well written, just not always well thought out. When I was reading the emails sent back in fourth between the two friends (the internet is up? What the Hell?) I felt they were more young college students (18/19) Not 26 year old women. Some of the emails seemed very teenagerish or even childish...Not what you would expect from women their age. Now let's gets back to the internet... Why aren't they suspicious about that... I mean hardly any gas, low food supplies...shoddy electricity...and the internet is on? Come On!!! Now onto the good stuff...




    I loved reading about the relationships in this book, even before they got steamy. These girls really fought to stay alive, but at the same time found something they weren't really looking for. The thing about the world ending is that while it brings out the good in some people...it brings out the worst in most. I thought the villains in this story were brilliantly written. Each horrible person they came upon worst than the last. I am a big fan of the walking dead and revolution and I think to write a really good guy...you have to write the bad guy better. So this book gets 4 stars because it was just that Good, but I'm hoping the next in the series explains why is the internet on...and I don't like endings that leave me hanging...unless I can read the other book right then;)

    Good Read!

    As a fan of apocalyptic novels, I immediately ordered After the Ending for free through Book Bub. These gals are good at spinning an engrossing tale but they need some serious editing assistance to get rid of redundancy. I also find that some of the characters are entirely too one-sided. Most of them have major trust issues, to the point that you want to reach into the page and throttle them at times.

    On the very positive side, I love the fact that these survivors have wonderful abilities that should allow them to thrive in the post-virus world. But they really need to get their heads screwed on a little tighter and stop obsessing over things that happened in their pasts and move on to a viable future.

    I was very annoyed that the first novel in the series ended with a cliff-hanger. This is just poor form ladies, in a trilogy, each book should be able to stand alone. Work on that, please. I did buy the second installment to find out what happened to Dani, but resented that I was tricked into doing so.

    From the very start of this book I have been attached to the characters and in tears over their struggles. 
    I started the book with optimism; I love apocalyptic fiction/romance. Within 3 chapters I was in tears and completely hooked, I just couldn't put it down. I liked how the chapters flip flopped between Dani and Zoe. I was easy when I got used to the switch with every chapter. Towards the end there were a few times it didn't automatically switch between the 2 and I had to go back and look to see who I had been reading about in the chapter before; I started paying more attention to the names written on the chapters at that point. I loved both girls but I felt more connected with the Dani and Jason situation. Watching them flirt back and forth then grow distant and go back to flirting was pulling on my heart. I felt her pain. The end was absolutely wonderful and everything I could have asked for, it pulled the book together perfectly. The epilogue on the other hand left me with so many questions and knots in my stomach. I literally screamed when I read the last sentence and realized MG is actually Gabe. It was plagued my thoughts day and night since I finished the book. I am anxiously (not very patiently) waiting for the next book.

    Childish

    There could have been so much more story about the virus, about how the characters dealt with the virus, and about the characters themselves. But it's just a childish romance novel. Everyone in the story acts like they are 14 years old.

    I think the story premise is good. But the story lacks any real substance. I tried to like it.

    Felt YA instead of NA, but you know what? I STILL loved it. The cliffhanger alone made it worth it. You never know what can happen.

    A black hole read

    I could not put this down! I felt very connected and invested in the characters, and this plot was unpredictable, so I never knew what would happen next. Although I identify in many ways with Dani, Zoe is definitely my favorite. And I am not ashamed to admit that I have no small fictional crush on Jake.

    There's a lot of profanity, but it's pretty easily overlooked. I loved it, and it left me wanting more.

    Superb

    I was hooked from the very beginning. It's a very original post-apocalyptic tale of some compelling characters. I'm excited to continue reading this series. My friends in a Facebook Nook group loved it as well.

    Jumps around

    This book might be great if it didn't jump around so much. I got to the 8th chapter and decided I couldn't pay attention. It's ok to jump back and forth between chatacters but jumping days ahead of where the last character left off gets confusing.
