Review: The Last by Hanna Jameson @Hanna_Jameson @AtriaBooks @suspensethrill

review:

I’ve stepped outside of my genre comfort zone with The Last, and I’m so glad that I took the chance – it paid off!

This is a dark, deeply disturbing tale of one man’s account of what he deems to be the end of the world due to nuclear war. One that is extremely unsettling and anxiety inducing due to the fact that it is completely possible.

Jon is an American historian who finds himself at a secluded Swiss hotel for a writing conference when nuclear war breaks out. This is his story, told from his point of view, as he tries to record everything that happens for documentation purposes. From complete blackout of the internet and news, to attempting to find food in order to survive – you will find yourself questioning what you would do if you were in the same shoes. It is a story of survival, mystery, and trying to find hope in the bleakness of atrocity.

This is super cinematic in its storytelling – I could absolutely see it being picked up as a film or series. Netflix – get on board here, please!🤗

A big thank you to my girl Chelsea for the invitation to read this book, and to Atria for my advance copy! This book will be available April 2019!

synopsis:

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?
