Vivian Apple at the End of the World - Katie Coyle

This was one of the reads I was looking forward to the most in 2014, but I didn't manage to read it till last month.


Alternative Title: Vivian Apple versus the Apocalypse.


Vivian didn't believe it when the end of the world was predicted, even though her parents were strong believers. Imagine her surprise when she arrives home from a party to see her parents gone. And there are holes in the ceiling. Has the Apocalypse begun?


I quite like this story. It was not exactly what I expected it to be. I thought it would be more an apocalyptic tale of survival, but really it's just what it says it is. A road trip looking for the truth. In - I dare say - a very creepy environment. Religious fanaticism is always creepy of course, but in this book it really got on my nerves. 


Some things felt a bit weird though. The trip with the grandparents to New York didn't make much sense to me. However, it was still an interesting new series, and I'm looking forward to the next instalment!


This is the first book in the new series about Vivian Apple. The second book is called Vivian Versus America/ Vivian Apple Needs A Miracle.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
