The End of the World Survivors Club - Review

Idgie Says: 

I loved The End of the World Running Club and was eager to get my hands on the follow up story, featuring the wife, Beth. I wanted to see how she and the children fared and if Ed ever managed to find them, or if Ed would be in the story at all.  

I will admit that I liked Ed more than Beth as a character, as Beth is a bit of a cold fish, but she's a determined cold fish!  When her children are abducted, even the Apocalypse won't stop her from going after them. 

There are characters from the first book in the story, which keeps it running more like a sequel than a second point of view. 

It's a very fast paced read, with little downtime in the action.  You need to make sure that your skeptical cap isn't on and simply enjoy the ride.

I would recommend that you read The End of the World Running Club first, if you haven't already.  You could find yourself a little lost if you don't, but not enough to ruin the story. 

The other book shown below, The Last Dog on Earth, is a completely different story and not tied to these two books in anyway.  I also recommend this book!

For the US, you can purchase this paperback through with free shipping!  It does appear that you can also purchase the paperback through Amazon, but not the eBook version.


In THE END OF THE WORLD RUNNING CLUB Edgar Hill ran 550 miles after an apocalypse to try and find his family.

He had it easy. 

This is his wife’s story.

Beth Hill has survived the apocalypse with a baby and toddler in tow. And what’s more she’s done it alone - without her husband’s help. He’s never been any help. But when disaster strikes and someone steals her kids, she knows what she has to do.

The new world might be very different: no government, no law, no infrastructure and a whole lot more ocean than there used to be. But one thing hasn’t changed - the lengths a mother will go to save her family...
