The Notebook meets World War Z
“Nick Cole’s novels are hard to put down, and as usual I read straight through The End of the World as We Knew It. The characters are deep and grab you right away. Every page results in a surprise, new information, or fantastic action as this fast paced adventure takes off and doesn’t stop til you are done. Cole’s imagery is vivid and sets an emotional atmosphere as well, be prepared to be tired out if your tear through the novel in one sitting, like I did.”
In the future, an artist specializing in historical records creates a piece of art based on three separate accounts of the Pandemic. What follows is a patchwork tale of survival and horror as two lovers struggle to survive the undying dead and the collapse of an America turned charnel house. Told as memos from Ground Zero, and later in the journal of a Dark Tower-like quest by train and foot across a nightmare landscape of ruined cities and raving corpses, the three accounts reveal more than just the grim realities of society’s collapse. The Notebook meets The Walking Dead in this stained glass depiction of the end of the world as we knew it.
“A fantastic novel told through heartbreaking,intensely personal tales of the apocalypse. Cole’s characters brim withlife.”
– New York Times bestseller Jason M. Hough, author ofZero World
