The Last – Hanna Jameson – 26.08.20

I’m just back from a visit with my daughter and her boyfriend in Wales, and we had the clever idea to swap kindles for the visit and read each other’s books. When flicking through her kindle my finger accidentally lingered on this book which opened it. I started reading, and was instantly hooked. It’s a postapocalyptic novel, with its main protagonist as a middle aged American at a conference in Switzerland when Nuclear war happened. The book follows the few people who didn’t try to flee the remote hotel. With phones and internet down, they have to come to terms with not knowing what’s going on and deciding what to do next. There’s also a bit of a murder mystery as they find the body of a small girl who must have been killed before the bombs. I enjoyed the book and found it a fun holiday read.
