After The Ending by the Lindseys
Written mostly as a series of e-mails - which is so weird since it is a post apocalyptic novel and how on earth is the internet working and if it is, why do they only use it for personal e-mails and why on earth is there not a lot of important communication and information being shared on the internet if it is working after an apocalyptic virus is purposely set upon the earth by the military which killed most people leaving the survivors with all kinds of odd superpowers like esp and telecommunication and being able to telepathically communicate with animals and heal oneself etc...?
The e-mails are between best friends Zoe and Danni, separated by distance when the virus strikes, but both survive and try to find one another with the help of Zoe's brother who Danni has always had a crush on and now, after the apocalypse, even though he has sex with everything that moves, he apparently loves Danni and so settles with her because his past of having sex with every other female on earth who he could meant nothing to him and she is happy and ok with that. Ick.
I got this book free to review from Netgalley.
It has some errors in it - perhaps those were corrected in a later edition of it?
It ends with a major cliffhanger - not even a real ending of it's own at all.
Has potential, but the whole internet thing was not properly thought out at all.
