The Last by Hanna Jameson

This book has been on my radar since early Fall 2018. I have been beyond excited to read this book because it just sounded so incredible!

Thank you Atria Books for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.

It’s the end of the world as we know it. Or do we? Jon was away on conference when the end of the world came in the form of a nuclear war. He is one of the few people that decided to stay in the hotel to wait out and see what happens. What starts as a survival story becomes a story of mystery – a little girl is found murdered in the water tank of the hotel. You’d be surprised at how much this twist of fate makes a difference in the end!

I absolutely loved the way this story was written. This story was Jon’s written journal of what went down when he got the news that the end of the world had begun. Such a cool way to read a book! Hanna is also super talented at writing a mystery novel. She has gone on my list of favorite authors for sure! This story read like a Twilight Zone story. Everything about this novel I loved. Except? The ending! It totally caught me off guard! I don’t know why I didn’t expect it, but it shocked me and still has my head spinning. I thought it was so unfitting for how the rest of the story went. It was just really far-fetched and didn’t seem to belong. It’s been gnawing at my brain for the last 24 hours. I don’t know quite what to think of it, but just to take it as face value.

4/5 Stars
