    From a background of ease and comfort, from a time and place where life still makes some kind of sense, Anna Blume embarks on a search for her missing brother. Soon she finds herself trapped in a city whose consciousness is obsessed with last things: with the means and manner of death. In this culture of doom, the masses are homeless, theft has ceased to be a crime.

    Stephanie says: "The story had a bit of a slow start."

    Story
    If you could sum up In the Country of Last Things in three words, what would they be?

    Future dystopia setting with the main character/story teller writing to an unknown source.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of the story started when the main character began to tell her story more. The least interesting part was the beginning because I had a hard time telling whom she was suppose to be speaking to, and where she was writing from.


    What does Vanessa Redgrave bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Vanessa Redgrave did a great job at setting the tone for the story and her voice over kept me listening even when I didn't know what was happening story wise.


    Who was the most memorable character of In the Country of Last Things and why?

    The most memorable character was the journalist the main character fell in love with in the middle of the story, and jump started the main characters subplot.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story toward the middle and end of the novel. Started reading this book based on a Book Club recommendation. Definitely worth talking about.
