The Last People on Earth

Life As We Knew It (Last Survivors, #1)

Life as We Know It

By: Susan Beth Pfeffer

Genre: YA Dystopia

Pages: 337

Published: 2006

Read: November

3.5 out of 5

Imagine if life was so desolate, you were one of the last people on earth. This is that story, reminding me of the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and told through the eyes of 16 year old Miranda, but without the heavy religious tone.  This story is a scary revelation of what could and may happen one day in the future.  I appreciated the idea that life goes on, but will revert back to the early pioneer days of no electricity or hot water. However it also entails limited food and such grim weather conditions, depending on growing your own vegetables and having stores that are open is obsolete.  After reading the novel, I saw on the back cover that it was a Listening Library selection. If I continue the series, The Last Survivors, I will probably try the audiobook version.
