The Last Murder at the End of the World
The Last Murder at the End of the World: The dazzling original new high concept murder mystery from the author of the much loved, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle | Stuart Turton
Solve the murder to save what's left of the world. Outside the island there is nothing: the world destroyed by a fog that swept the planet, killing anyone it touched. On the island: it is idyllic. 122 villagers and 3 scientists, living in peaceful harmony. The villagers are content to fish, farm and feast, to obey their nightly curfew, to do what they're told by the scientists. Until, to the horror of the islanders, one of their beloved scientists is found brutally stabbed to death. And they learn the murder has triggered a lowering of the security system around the island, the only thing that was keeping the fog at bay. If the murder isn't solved within 92 hours, the fog will smother the island and everyone on it. But the security system has also wiped everyone's memories of exactly what happened the night before, which means that someone on the island is a murderer and they don't even know it... The outstanding new high concept murder mystery from the Sunday Times bestselling and Costa Book Award winning author of The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. An ingenious puzzle, an extraordinary backdrop, an audacious solution. Available to pre order NOW.

This author manages to combine sci-fi (fantasy here) with murder mystery in a unique way. And I'm here for it.

I don't have any strong feelings about this book. It was just an okay story that entertained me for a little bit.

Happy Friday, littens! 🥳📚💕

Today is a good day. I went to Barnes & nobles earlier (more on that in the next post...) and now I am cuddled up with Rumpel and finally digging into the new Stuart Turton book! I am officially HOOKED! That man can really write a compelling story!

@RaeLovesToRead Tagging Rae since Turton is her author hubby! 🤭🩷

Long time no reviews! Hi! This was a weird friggin‘ book guys. Like way more racism than I expected. I‘m trying to finish a boatload of books this summer for all staff SRP, so I can‘t tell if this book was compelling or if I‘m motivated by bragging rights and a trophy.

Themes: Dystopian Utopia, Sherlock Holmes-esque, Family Bonding

Yay! Finally a Stuart Turton book I completely understood the ending to! 😆 I enjoyed his other books, but in that, “I think I got it? But I‘m not sure…. I liked what I did get!” way. This one is by far my favorite by him; I loved his characters and the setting. It won‘t be everyone‘s cup of tea, and that‘s alright, it will definitely bring some good discussions to the table.

This book was so freaking good! I was immediately invested and needed to find out what was going on. I was flipping through these pages so fast. It also makes you think a lot, especially about humanity. It kept me guessing until the last page. Was seriously so good. 5/5

I kept seeing reference to this book, and had to dive in. It was an interesting dystopian murder mystery with some quite quotable lines. I thought parts were repetitive- okay, Jack died 5 years prior! But I thought the character development was very good. Imagine if the human race was hard-wired to always choose kindness over power.

BookWrym I like Turton‘s other books so will give this one a go 😀 3w
marleed @BookWrym It‘s quite good! I was about 40% in when I was like Woooah! So it‘s going to go this direction! 3w

Oooooooo! Love me a fun #bookmail day 🤩 I splurged on the B&N Exclusive copy of Stuart Turtan‘s latest so I could get the bonus short story 😎 I am already figuring out what weekend I should block off to sit and read this beauty - Turton‘s books always require my full concentration and brain power 😂

#BookMail that‘s been steadily trickling in since January.This signed special edition of Turton‘s latest is gorgeous! His 3rd novel,I adored his 1st book but his 2nd was not quite there. It sounds like another twisty turny plot so🤞122 villagers & 3 scientists live on an idyllic island that shatters when one of the scientists is murdered.They have 107hrs to find the killer before the fog that killed the rest of the world envelops their sanctuary.

marleed It‘s beautiful 😍 4w

Points for creativity, but ultimately I didn't really enjoy the experience of reading this book. There was a lot going on, and I felt lost almost the whole time, and when you finally learn what's going on it just wasn't worth the lead up. It felt long and at times it was repetitive, going over the same basic suspects over and over again. But then at times it would skip ahead several hours and I would be totally lost.

Still thinking about this book - this quote in particular

Aims42 I can‘t wait, this one sounds soooooo good!!! I splurged and pre-ordered the fancy painted edge version from Barnes & Noble -Kermit flailing arms- 1mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Aims42, love that for you! Love a fancy edition. Hope you love it - I went in knowing almost nothing and somehow it still wasn‘t quite what I was expecting? But I guess one does just have to expect that with a Stuart Turton. I really liked his authors note at the end too. 1mo
Aims42 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Lol, yes I‘ve learned to go in being slightly confused and just go along for the crazy ride with his books 😆 1mo

This was one of my most anticipated books for the year and my library hold arrived while I was in the midst of a deep reading slump… but I‘m so glad I kept reading, even if it did take me way longer than it should have.

It‘s such an interesting premise and most of the time it really delivers and definitely makes you think about humanity, the general state of the world and the power of community bonds, greed and unethical science.

Crazeedi Sounds interesting 1mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Crazeedi, the author is on a mission to write a murder mystery in every possible genre and I‘m here for it 🙌🏼 1mo

Loved it. Locked-island, post-apocalyptic murder mystery madness.

Readable as heck. Probably full of plot holes I don't give a damn about. Twisty, turny, ambitious, and totally bananas.

I continue to be a huge Stuart Turton fan. I eat up everything he puts out and love that his books are original and different from each other.

He simply can't write fast enough for me 😊💕

A small island. About 125 inhabitants. One is found dead. It could have been any inhabitant. Because everyone's memory of the night had been erased including the AI's who was the only one capable of doing so.
The murder collapsed the barrier keeping the island safe. If the villagers can't find the murderer and get the AI to raise the barrier again they'll all die. It's a race against time, they have less than two days.

Wanted to read the tagged #ARC. You know, eroding #MountARC and all that... Got sidetracked and spent nearly an hour reading reviews and review comments on Goodreads. 🙈🤦🏻‍♀️🙈🤦🏻‍♀️🙈🤦🏻‍♀️

Anyone else regularly fall down a reviews rabbit hole?

RaeLovesToRead I'm going to go see Stuart Turton next month. He is awesome! 3mo
julesG @RaeLovesToRead I'll let you know if I've got any questions for him. I'd love to live somewhere where I can go to author events without having to use my passport 😐 3mo
Hooked_on_books I do sometimes do that. Sometimes I‘m glad I did and sometimes I regret it, as some people have spoilers they don‘t mark as such. 3mo
Ruthiella Totally. Sometimes I spend more time reading ABOUT reading than I do actually reading books. 😆 3mo

This is a dystopian murder mystery which takes place on an island & home to the last humans on Earth. Between the AI character, multi POV format, and short chapters - this was an engaging mystery to unravel.

This book comes out May 2024! My buddy read group gave it 3.5-4 ⭐️

💭 Do you like books featuring AI characters? If so lmk some book recommendations for more bc I‘m into it!
