Publisher's Summary

When the world ends, where will you go?
In a breathtakingly vivid and emotionally gripping debut novel, one woman must confront the emptiness in the universe - and in her own heart - when a devastating virus reduces most of humanity to dust and memories.

All Jamie Allenby ever wanted was space. Even though she wasn't forced to emigrate from Earth, she willingly left the overpopulated, claustrophobic planet. And when a long relationship devolved into silence and suffocating sadness, she found work on a frontier world on the edges of civilization. Then the virus hit.
Now Jamie finds herself dreadfully alone, with all that's left of the dead. Until a garbled message from Earth gives her hope that someone from her past might still be alive.
Soon Jamie finds other survivors, and their ragtag group will travel through the vast reaches of space, drawn to the promise of a new beginning on Earth. But their dream will pit them against those desperately clinging to the old ways. And Jamie's own journey home will help her close the distance between who she has become and who she is meant to be.

Space Between the Pages...

If you could sum up The Space Between the Stars in three words, what would they be?

Came up short.


What about Mary Woodvine’s performance did you like?

I hear a lot of narrators as I have been listening to audio books for many years. Her reading and interpretation of the book was perfect, she did not distract from the story at all, but instead made the journey very enjoyable.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

Although I feel something came up short on this book and I can't put my finger on it, I actually really enjoyed the book. I was really expecting a bit more drama then was given, but in all honesty it was nice to see that not every post-apocalyptic story has to be full of evil humans. There seems to be some unfinished business in this book. I am guessing saving room for a follow up book. Yes... I will definitely be reading that one too!

Don't waste your time.

The main character is insufferable. Do not waste your time. The narrator has a nice voice.
