Reviews for The Quiet at the End of the World

I adored The Quiet at the End of the World and it will be one of the books I'll recommend more often to anyone who cares to listen. It is essential that you read this if you love realistic post-apocalyptic stories. * Parabatai Reviews * [...] a credible, hugely rewarding read. * SFX * This book made me cry, it made me laugh and it made me yell uncontrollably at 1am and I would absolutely do it all over again. * Fantastic Books and Where to Find Them *
