Etiquette for an Apocalypse by Anne Mendel- Book Review Thursday

Click here for the buy link

Before the end of the world, Sophie Cohen was just like any other mom. She took care of her two kids and her husband, and life was good. After the caldera blew, life went to Hell in a handbasket. Making a new life for her family, including her dellusional mother and genius/autistic brother, doesn’t come easy. Sophie is able to make ends meet by selling her brother’s antibotics, pain killers, and whatever other medicine he can come up with. When her husband discovers bodies being dumped at his hospital, Sophie is sent on a wild ride trying to find the person responsible for the deaths and along the way gets swept up in post-apocalyptic warfare. It’s survival of the fittest and the winner is the one who holds all the cards

Etiquette for an Apocalypse is a refreshing new take on the end of the world. It didn’t need zombies or anything crazy supernatural to make a point. I always like new takes on old ideas and this book definitely had it. I mean, what would you do when the world ended? Sophie was an interesting character who did what she had to get by. The idea of a serial killer at the end of the world was different but something I felt I could get behind. Then the story went off in a weird direction.

I felt like Anne Mendel got a bit sidetracked with trying to transition from chasing a serial killer to teaming up to take down the psychotic pseudo-over lord of the end of the world. The action was extremely anti-climatic, after an interesting build up, and at the end, it just got weird.

I would recommend this book simply because it’s so different. If you can get past the weird crap in the last 10 or so chapters, then you’ll really like it.
