Meh week. I have worked for a couple of weeks now and had my first cold, and still has. No energy, lingering on almost fever territory. I know you should rest, but when I get them all the time I am all SIGH.
Welcome to the Apocalypse. Your forecast includes acid rain, roving gangs and misplaced priorities, in this comedic take on the end of the world as we know it, from debut author Daphne Lamb.
As a self-entitled, self-involved, and ill equipped millennial, Verdell probably wouldn’t have ranked very high on the list of those most likely to survive the end of the world, but here she is anyway. Add in travelling with her work addicted boss, her boyfriend who she has “meh” feelings for, and a handful of others who had no businesses surviving as long as they have, and things aren’t exactly going as planned. But despite threats of cannibalism, infected water supplies, and possibly even mutants, Verdell is willing to put in as little effort as she can get away with to survive.
This book meant to be hilarious, but it tried WAY too hard. I mean WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too hard. It was ridiculous. In the end I wanted everyone to just die. They did not deserve to live because they were so stupid.
Girl whatever her name was, stayed on floor X with coworkers. People were dying from sickness on other floors. Society was crumbling and they were, wait for it, working. Yes working. Thinking of memos, why the phones wont work and shit like that. I was all, what? You are stuck in a building, starving, dying and working. Get the F out. Survive!
They are saved. And they continues being stupid. Not thinking of surviving and more. Just being stupid. Thinking of stupid things. I did not get it. Was I missing something? Was I supposed to laugh when they wrote notes in a board and pretended it was twitter? No. They were stupid, and if that is the people that survives an apocalypse, then humankind is doomed. And deserves to be wiped out.
It could have been funny, it failed.
