Publisher's Summary

Cassie Forrest could almost believe life at Kingdom Come Farm is perfect, with Adrian and her friends at her side and spring on the way. The spring thaw also means millions of defrosting zombies, however, and if the past year has taught her anything, it's that life in this new world is highly imperfect.

When Safe Zones throughout the country begin to disappear and the zombies at the fences grow in number, Cassie clings to the hope that if she has the people she loves most, it will be all right. But the highly imperfect world makes only one guarantee - zombies never die, never stop, and are never satiated.

    "Super Boring"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved books 1 & 1.5. I loved the characters and their stories. This book though, it's just blah. I could sum up the entire book in 5 sentences and the reader could go directly to book 3 and be completely caught up.
    How did people manage to survive at Kingdom Come without this group of friends? No one else can fight the zombies. No one can patrol. No one can go on supply runs. Anytime someone has to go out of the fence, it's a handful of the main characters. There's an important death, but I was glad. This character was annoying perfect, which made me glad when they died.
    The writing goes like this: Love story, love story, love story.......oh let's just go out of the fence for no particular reason, one or 2 people get eaten by zombies........love story, love story, love story........oh, you need more fuel? let's go out of the fence. Woops, we were careless and hit a ditch, causing another person to get eaten........love story, love story, love story.........let's go visit another safe zone and go pitch a tent out in the middle of nowhere, and then be shocked when we wake up in the middle of a field of zombies..........Another safe zone got overrun by zombies and none of the hundred or so survivors, including soldiers, can remove the dead bodies, so let's go over and do it for them, making sure to get one or 2 of us eaten along the way. The scenario really does repeat itself throughout the ENTIRE book. Super boring and predictable.
    It picked up pace at the very end. So I'll continue with the series, considering there's only 1 book left. But I'm pretty sure how it's going to go. The next love story is pretty predictable.

    "FABULOUS LISTEN!"

    I listened to both books and the novella non stop, I couldn't put it away..... There is times when it seems like it's going to be boring and all doom and gloom but Fleming's throws another twist into it and bam a new direction is established. I can tell you that this book brought times of tears running down my face from the intensity of the characters emotions, but it also had me laughing out loud or smiling too.....

    Again, GREAT STORY + EXCELLENT NARRATION= FABULOUS LISTEN!!! Well worth the credit!!

    "Totally addictive"
    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I am hooked and thankfully there is another book left in the series to feed my addiction. Then I am going to Mordacious, which is a spin off with new characters but set in the world of Cassie and friends. It tells what happens to Cassie's brother, Eric, and Penny/Anna's mother, Maria. Back to this book - it is a very good sequel to End of the World Book one and So Long Lollipops. Cassie's group has moved up to Vermont and met new people who blend into the story. It has some heart wrenching moments as well as happy moments. Mainly it is just flat out interesting and entertaining and, as I said, addictive. The narrator is excellent!!!

    "Prepare yourself"

    Prepare. There will be tears and anger and probably many times when you wish you had stopped after the first novel, if you're anything like myself. But the story and the emotions are so real it's really amazing it's a work a fiction. Standing ovation for Fleming, even if I hate her a little.

    "This one gripped my heart for some reason"

    Performance was great no complaints.

    I've listened to a lot of zombie stories, this one will go down as one of my for favorites. Interesting twist to how things turn out.

    "Be prepared!"

    The story continues a pace, but be prepared for sad times ahead.
    Grief is well described and just when you've had enough, the person starts to recover. There are no happy endings, though there is hope for the future. Can't wait to listen to book 3!

    "Great. Not as good as the first or third."
    If you could sum up And After in three words, what would they be?

    Lots of talking


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    She's brilliant


    Any additional comments?

    I love the whole series, and I happily listened to this one. However, not a lot happens for quite a while. And by that I mean there's not any zombie action but not any emotional action either. Just lots of talking and jokes. The zombies become less scary due to their repetition. I love the series and I absolutely loved the third part. But this one is my least favourite!
