I recently just finished a book called “The Last Girl“ by Joe Hart . The book is 372 pages and is very interesting. The book synopsis consist of a character named Zoey and Zoey is one of the last few girls on earth, After an epidemic The birthrate of females went from 50% to less than 1% and after 25 years of this the population of women is less than a thousand. Since this epidemic earth has been crippled and every women that is born must be praised and are kept safe, since their are so few girls there is a compound that these women are kept to complete research on. After Zoey has been kept from her family in this compound for two decades and tested on like a lab rat, they have told her that the rest of the population outside the compound has been killed by the epidemic. Zoey is preparing for the next set of testing and other girl in the compound has come back from this and she is planing on escaping the compound but she doesn’t know what she will see when she escapes the outside world because she has never seen it.
This book had a page turning appeal about it and was hard to put down, I also felt that I could relate to the character and really understand how she was feeling. The author was very good at projecting an image and able to describe what we should picture in her head. Although I really liked this book I wasn’t crazy about how the author limited the amount of contact with other charaters and the book didn’t really seem to reflect on others characters mostly just on the main character Zoey. I felt that even thought this book was a fast read because it was constant cliff hangers it also seems a little drawn out and could be more briefly described and shortened.Overall I would highly suggest this book to readers interested in suspense and mystery.
