Publisher's Summary

The best-selling first audiobook in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic romance 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.
This audiobook contains some adult content and language.

Like watching the Orange County Housewifes.

Would you try another book from Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue and/or Natalie Duke?

I admire that these young women wrote a book, it is really hard to write a book, so I give them a pat on the back for that...but it wasn't an enjoyable book. It was like a soap opera. The male characters were all sleazy and the girls were superficial. You never connect to any of the characters. It is a long book and I actually listened to about 7 hours hoping it would go somewhere, but it didn't, and I decided I really don't care about the characters or the plot.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'm listening to Angle Fall right now. It wasn't my first choice but it was offered at a good price and so far I am enjoying very much.

Would you be willing to try another one of Natalie Duke’s performances?

No, I didn't like the voices she gave her characters, they were whiny or sleazy.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

My reaction was seriously like watching The Bachelor or the Housewives. Terrible shows but you are hooked sort of like a train wreck.

Capital D-R-A-M-A

Well, well, well before I begin I know that for a fact that everyone loves a little drama. This book caught me by surprise, in more ways than one. There was a lot to like and I, for one love a good cross country apocalyptic roadtrip. Throw in some love, a dash of the supernatural, some humour and a big chunk of drama and you got me hooked. I really liked the dual point of views and how they rotated back and forth. I have to admit that I did find myself liking one point of view a little better than the other but I will keep that to myself as to not sway anyone's opinion. The author does a good job of building and making the main characters realistic. I know many will disagree with that but for me I found that the ages and mannerisms of the girls were on par with the real world. Even down to the occupations. The male characters were a little less realistic than I would have liked but were on par with other post apocalyptic characters I have encountered. A colony... there is always a colony so that is all I will say about that lol. I really thought after reading the reviews of the narration that I would not enjoy it, but on the contrary I thought she did a really admirable job. It is not only about the character's voices. There are quite a few other qualities and attributes that I look for in a narrator such as pacing, tone and sound level among others. I think there had to be some difficult and "descriptive" scenes to narrate in this story (cough cough) and I thought they were done quite well. Now, this is not to say the book is perfect, sure there are some things it could do without and it takes some disbelief from reality but what story doesn't. Go read some non-fiction if that is what you are looking for. There were a few spots that I thought the scenes would or should end but other than that a job well done. I have the second installment already cued up. I am looking forward to seeing how the sophomore story plays out and where it takes the series.

Terrible

What disappointed you about After The Ending?

Almost everything about this book disappointed me. I think if I had read the reviews maybe I would have had a warning but the scores made it seems a reasonable risk. I can't comment on the whole book as despite my best efforts I couldn't finish it. It made me want to scream. I don't know if this is 'chic lit' being sold under the aegis of science fiction/fantasy but it was truly toe curling.

What could Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Unfortunately the only thing they could have done would have been never to embark upon the project. The narrator's whining voice was marginally less offensive than the puerile story line and pathetic plot.

Would you be willing to try another one of Natalie Duke’s performances?

Absolutely not - her voice would set my teeth on edge. Most audible books are reasonably well narrated - but not this one.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It had no redeeming qualities at all. If it had been shorter it would have been less painful, perhaps, but I don't see how anybody could stand more than a few chapters.

Post viral apocalypse creates lovesick survivors.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who likes Mills and Boon romances would probably like this.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue again?

No

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was probably appropriate to a young fiction novel but I found it difficult to take seriously in the context of a post viral apocalypse.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The non-romance based ideas were quite good but I felt they were not adequately developed.
