Post summary of “The Last Girl”

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.

Its Monday and I am reading “The Last Girl”

In The past two weeks I started reading a book called The Last Girl by Joe Hart I have read about 200 pages which is about two thirds of the book. So far the book seems very intresting and makes you think about things from a different perspective. From what I have read so far The perspective in this book is from Zoey whom is one of the last few girls on earth. It seems that in the world that this book describes earth went through an epidemic and the birthrate of females went from 50% to less than 1% and after 25 years the female population has dropped to less than a thousand girls. Every girl that is born must be taken to a scientific compound to be tested and conducted research on. I am about two thirds of the way done with this book and it is getting very jaw dropping and I can’t wait to let you guys Know how the rest of the book goes.

In the past two weeks that I have been reading this book many other things have happened and as usual my life has been very hectic, For instance last week was my Roommate/Best friends Birthday. His Birthday was a very busy day as I waited till the last minute to get his gifts and balloons and of course it takes twice as long to get everything because I was in a hurry and off course he also gets out of class earlier than usual to add to the chaos. So not only was his actually Birthday a head ache of a day it was stressful week since my best friend seems to think that his Birthday should last the whole week and that we should celebrate everyday for a week, Not to mention that I had tons of homework during this week. So as you can tell I was happy to have the weekend come and happy for my friends birthday week of fun be over.
