Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle
3 out of 5 stars.
Goodreads Description: Seventeen-year-old Vivian Apple never believed in the evangelical Church of America, unlike her recently devout parents. But when Vivian returns home the night after the supposed “Rapture,” all that’s left of her parents are two holes in the roof. Suddenly, she doesn’t know who or what to believe. With her best friend Harp and a mysterious ally, Peter, Vivian embarks on a desperate cross-country roadtrip through a paranoid and panic-stricken America to find answers. Because at the end of the world, Vivan Apple isn’t looking for a savior. She’s looking for the truth.
I was instantly drawn to this book, because I really loved the book cover and the description pulled me in. A book about the rapture? Sounds good to me! This book was a really slow start for me and throughout the entire book I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. There were times where I really liked it and other times where I didn’t know if I wanted to finish it.
Not too much was really going on in the book and I wanted more. I liked the road trip aspect of it, but I felt like nothing was really happening. There were a few interesting things though and a few surprises at the end. I loved the idea behind the story, but I think it could have been so much better. I started to enjoy it more toward the end when questions were starting to get answered.
Vivian, Harp, and Peter were the main characters in this book. They set out on a trip together to try to figure out what was going on after the rapture. I’m not exactly sure how I feel about them. There were times that I liked them, but there were a lot of times where I didn’t. I couldn’t really connect with them. I did like Peter more than everyone else though. He was an interesting character and I feel like he’s hiding more. Harp was kind of annoying and Vivian had her moments. I felt bad for her throughout the book.
Random Love: I liked that there were Doctor Who references in the book! 😛
There is a sequel to this book and I will eventually want to read it. This book left me curious enough to want to see where this story goes and there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it?
I hope you all have an awesome day! BYE! ❤
