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.

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?


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.
