The world as we know it is ending. Earthquakes and extreme weather are becoming more and more frequent. Countries are closing their borders, food shortage is becoming a big problem and the only way for people to survive is to get a place on the Arks the government are building. Dee was told she will get a place on her companies ark, but it's apparent that that isn't going to happen. How is she going to survive?
This book was extremely frustrating to read. On one hand, I enjoyed the idea behind it and the author does a great job with the world building and making the whole thing feel like something that could happen. But on the other hand, there's Dee. While I did like her for the most part, I just found some of the stuff she did a bit stupid. Plus there is a very unnecessary love triangle.
I liked that Dee was intelligent, willing to bend the rules to help others and an all round likable girl, I just found the idea of her love life silly and the way she acted was something that brought her character down. I mean, what was the need to have her in a relationship with 2 men and those two men seemingly ok with it. I want to say a lot about this but I will spoil something!!! I generally loathe love triangles, though there are a few I can abide because the girl handles it well, but this one just made me want to stop reading. Plus something happens and Dee ends up with someone different way too easy and too soon and that really annoyed me. She started off such a strong character but ended up weak in my eyes.
In all, this is an ok read, (once you get past the love triangle that is). It shows a bleak future that is plausible in this day and age. The plot is slow and doesn't really get going at all, but being book 1 I was kind of expecting it. This is more setting the scene for the next book. I really hope Dee gets her stuff together in the future books and becomes the strong character I hoped she was.
Laura Bannister read this well. She had a few tones and voices for the different characters, though I wanted more emotion from her. I think if she put more into her performance, it would have been perfect!!
I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Where does End Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is by far one of the best audiobooks I have heard. The sound quality is excellent, the narrator has a very nice voice and the pace and enunciation are perfect. The book itself has a tight plot and likable characters dealing with a very plausible climate change disaster.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Dee Baker, a savvy programmer learns to adapt to a fast-changing world with humor and compassion and you come to see she has unexpected depths.
Which character – as performed by Laura Bannister – was your favorite?
The narrator captures the spirit of Dee Baker very well.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
This Is Your Tomorrow!
