Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Last by Hanna Jameson, read by Anthony Starke. 

BREAKING: Nuclear weapon detonates over Washington.

BREAKING: London hit, thousands feared dead.

BREAKING: Munich and Scotland hit. World leaders call for calm.

Jon Keller was on a trip to Switzerland when the world ended. More than anything he wishes he hadn't ignored his wife Nadia's last message. 

Twenty people remain in Jon's hotel. Far from the nearest city, they wait, they survive. 

Then one day, the body of a girl is found. It's clear she has been murdered. Which means that someone in the hotel is a killer....

As paranoia descends, Jon decides to investigate. But how far is he willing to go in pursuit of justice? And what happens if the killer doesn't want to be found?

A bit beige

I've been listening to this book on audible recently. I have to admit, I haven't finished it but I'm finding it a bit of a struggle to get to the end to be honest. I find the reader a little drab although he is excellent at the different accents. The story is unexciting and long winded, I find that there's a lot of filler in the book. I'll persevere to finish it as I hate not finishing a book.

It's fine.

There's this sentence fragment in the second to last chapter. "() I interjected, unable to stop myself, despite knowing that this wasn't about me" which I feel perfectly sums up the protagonist and what his role is in the book. It's always challenging to write such an unlikeable protagonist, especially in a first person narrative, and I had to google the author at one point to make sure it wasn't a man, because this character so perfectly expresses so many of the problems with men who think they are the hero of the story. Personally I would like to read the story from the doctor's point of view, because she seemed like a really cool character. Or the haunted drug addict, or, really, any of the other female characters. But to each her own. The writing style is good, and the premise is interesting, and only about 35% disaster porn, which is refreshing. I feel like the hints of supernatural aspects could have been more plentiful, but I mean, straight up nuclear apocalypse is fine. Anyway. Good book, don't regret spending a credit on it, only mild sleep paralysis horror material.

Post- app Murder mystery ....

with a taut plot, eerie and haunting felt like in this situation it is like some of us would react. It’s a compelling read. I quite like the ending tbh didn’t expect it Highly recommended!

Boring as hell....

Couldn't finish this. Normally I love a good end of the world yarn, but this wasn't one.
Narrator often seemed to forget whether he should be doing the protagonist's Woody Allen-like accent or one of the other characters.

Not a murder mystery

Supossed to be a mystery, it is not !. A book about what happens to people when the world ends.
