I am a person who watches Walking Dead. That being said, I loved this book. It's basically like a season of walking dead with people who actually make good decisions and with more character development. This book is more about the relationships than the gore, but I loved that aspect of "zombie apocalypse" and the dangers constantly lurking. There were many surprises in this book, and I was on the edge of my seat listening (shouting out loud as things happened). I loved it and can't wait for the next one to come out.

If you could sum up Until the End of the World in three words, what would they be?
Haunting, Compelling, Awesome
What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The emotion she conveyed and variety of voices were fabulous
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed and cried
Any additional comments?
I hadn't come across this author before and took a chance on an Audible offer. I'm so thrilled I did. I've just bought the sequel and pre-ordered the third. I could listen to the narrators voice all day, it was one of those books that I would listen too even when I wasn't driving( which is when I generally do my listening )
The characters have become friends I don't want to leave. Loved it :-)

I will make this shortish and hopefully sweet!
If you like zombie fiction buy this book and if you don't and zombies are not your thing then I would still be inclined to recommend this tale of love,loyalty and tragedy.
Of course this is a work of fiction based around the zombie apocalypse but it is so character driven you almost forget in parts that the walking dead are roaming the earth! There are so many zombie based books around that follow a similar premise that as much as I am a fan of our reanimated foes, I do find that I am rarely surprised. I would say that the main focus of this book is the relationships between the characters, be that with friends, family or lovers, good, bad and indifferent. Its not sloppy or cheesy, its very honest and full of heightened emotion (as it would be if the world was ending) at times I really wanted to hit and scream at certain characters and I did cry at other moments.
It still has a fair amount of brutal bits and I am surprised its been placed as a teenage book, there are no teenagers in it! Its definitely for adults.
Good solid narration by Julia Whelan brings together I well written and characterised piece that keeps you engaged and hopeful until the end........ of the world and after, there has to be more.
More than worth a credit.

This book has it all and was so well constructed also like that it stands alone as a story on it's own and does not need the next instalments although I can't wait to get into the next two books. The narrator was great and did so well although sometimes the mens voices did sound the same but that is minor considering she had so many to narrate. Love how we got to know everyone so easily without effort and felt like I was right with them the whole way through ..laughed, cried and felt the triumph and love for all .. well done.

I love a good zombie story and this one doesnt dissapoint. Walking dead fans, I recommend it! A little teenagerish in places, and in others, I quite disliked the main character due to her actions, but the story overall is great and i would recommend it higly!
