One night, the entire world has the same dream that they will drown on November 1. Everyone agrees, the world will end at that time. With this knowledge, Lyd and her young daughter, Mott, must come to terms with living in the end times and decide to embark on a road trip before the world ends. Along the way, they meet interesting characters, fulfill lifelong dreams, and work through difficult relationships. This heavily literary novel is uniquely written, as listeners are taken along on the road trip and find out information along with the characters. Narrator Stacey Glemboski brings to life a struggling mother, a confused daughter, and a motley crew of individuals courageously facing the most important event in human history.
VERDICT Exploring the choices humans make in trying times and offering a more nuanced take on the apocalyptic novel, this mesmerizing listen brings life to the unique writing of Meginnis (Fat Man and Little Boy).
