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.

    "A little monotonous"

    The biggest problem I had with this book is that it continued the later trend of book one in getting lost in a lot of the mundane day-to-day life - it tried to make itself into a dramatic series instead of a story of survival

    "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!!

    "A Zombie apocalypse where nobody dies."

    So, I almost liked this story. It addressed a lot of the issues shows like The Walking Dead don't cover. - like zombies + winter = zomcicles. However, the main character's love interest is annoyingly perfect aka one dimensional while the heroine was constantly self deprecating and SPOILERS:

    NO ONE important dies. Even if you think someone is dead, guess what, they ARE NOT. It's fine if you just want a passable zombie story but I'm returning it.

    "hate ZOMBIES< but love love love this book!"
    Where does And After rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I hold this as one of the favorites. I loved it. I hated for it to end. Just in case you didn't know there is "Until the End of the World", "So Long Lollipops" and then "And After". I would of never read this book if I didn't get the 1.5 book free. It is fantastic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And After?

    The way the Sarah Fleming described the details and captured the moments you felt as if your there in the book. Julia Whelan's performance helped added to the experience.


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

    She was awesome the characters and all the work she put into this book was amazing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The book will be better :)


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, listen to it... you will not be disappointed.

    "Boring punctuated with omg!"

    Just when I think I can't take the endless talking anymore something spontaneously erupts for no rhyme or reason and zombies eat people. Actually it's more due to stupid mistakes. Like touristing on wheels in a zombie safari past a pod of zombies and whoops, where'd that ditch come from? And then another very long stretch of talking and relationships before zombies pop again. I don't really know what to make of it, but I've picked up book three. It's really quite sad really. When the zombies eat people I mean.

    "This review contains spoilers."
    What disappointed you about And After?

    I have read book 1 and book 1.5.

    So far the best book is book 1.5, in my opinion.

    This books read more like a highschool novel with silly kids doing silly things
    1. Whats the deal with Cassie's birthday being crappy?
    2. They knew a giant "pod" is coming and just build a trench? That's it? No bells, no plan to re-group with White field?
    3. They teach children in the school paintings but not how to defend herself. The kids are taught to run and duck. That's it?
    4. Cassie gets attack by a Zombie "pod" after she sleeps with Dan. Reminds me of the cliche horror flick scene which the couple gets killed after having sex. Cliche much?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will continue with read book 3, oh well.


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

    Julia Whelan is a great narrator. Love her in book 1.5 and "I Take You".


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was an easy listen and the story isn't terrible.I was just horribly disappointed. Book 1.5 was so good. This book, sigh.


    Any additional comments?

    I was ok with the story 3 hours into the book. After that it was like, what the heck?

    "This book is more like a romance novel."

    This book is more about romance than the the zombie apocalypse. The story goes around in circles to much.

    "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!

    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!
