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.

Would you consider the audio edition of After The Ending to be better than the print version?

The audible edition enhances the print version. The voice changes make the plot move faster.

What did you like best about this story?

The loyalty of Zoe and Dani. The fast and binding friendships that are generated.

Which character – as performed by Natalie Duke – was your favorite?

Luke is my favorite character. His gruff character and the audio synch perfectly.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Zoe and Dani are reunited.

Any additional comments?

If you can read the six short story prequels you will be better prepared for the full length novels.

The convergence of a category five hurricane and a bomb to stop the storm.
