Last Ones Left Alive
Last Ones Left Alive | Sarah Davis-Goff
Combines the spare poetry of The Road with the dizzying pace of 28 Days Later. Jennie Melamed, author Gather the Daughters A riveting novel. Eowyn Ivey, bestselling author of The Snow Child Remember your just-in-cases. Beware tall buildings. Always have your knives. Raised in isolation by her mother and Maeve on a small island off the coast of a post-apocalyptic Ireland, Orpens life has revolved around training to fight a threat shes never seen. More and more she feels the call of the mainland, and the prospect of finding other survivors. But that is where danger lies, too, in the form of the flesh-eating menace known as the skrake. Then disaster strikes. Alone, pushing an unconscious Maeve in a wheelbarrow, Orpen decides her last hope is abandoning the safety of the island and journeying across the country to reach the legendary banshees, the rumored all-female fighting force that battles the skrake. But the skrake are not the only threat... Sarah Davis-Goff's Last Ones Left Alive is a brilliantly original imagining of a young woman's journey to discover her true identity.

This was really well written, but a bit too tough for me! I think this was just a not for me book.

Bleak, sad, and taut, but with moments of hope and triumph. I cannot believe I‘m talking about a zombie book, but reader, I am.

I flew through this book, after almost not even starting. Really strong writing and a serious feminist vibe. Orpen is a character that is going to stick with me, and I must say I would not be opposed to a sequel. Her world is original and fascinating.

A solid zombie tale. Took me about half the book to get into it and I‘m not huge on zombies but I did like it overall. #ARC

Set in a post-apocalyptic Ireland, this zombie thriller is certainly evocative and atmospheric. The considered prose is full of colloquial quirks that really instil it with a firm sense of place that I enjoyed. It is also quite fiercely feminist in a lot of ways, and neatly subverts many tropes of the genre. While it slightly lagged for me about three quarters of the way in, it's a great, quick read. I'd give it a solid three and a half stars.

Settling in for a cosy evening! I'm a total wimp when it comes to zombies but I've heard great things about this one so I'm willing to give it a go. Wish me luck! 😭

Dystopian fiction has been a favorite of mine for years! So glad I was able to get my hands on this creepy, yet powerful novel!
