Before I start with my New book Review , I would like to thank @PRHGlobal @prhinternational for Providing me with a free E-galley copy of this book for my Honest Review . Thanks a lot for giving me the opportunity to read this novel.
Book : Last Day .
Author : Domenica Ruta.
Genre : Fiction , Science Fiction .
Rate : 3.5/5
Review in one word : Interesting .
As always when I receive ARCs to review , I didn’t read the blurb or know anything about the book , even the genre .
I started it and I was ok , what’s next ?
Then I got immersed in the story and actually found it quite interesting , yeah , I didn’t finish it in one sitting , but I was invested in the story , the characters and their journeys.
The best thing about this story is the author writing style , Domenica Ruta is a gifted author , she has the ability to make you connect with the story with her charming Words and Entertaining plot , even though I didn’t like the story that much , the writing style was amazing .
I think the genre wasn’t for me .
But again the world building and characterization were really good .
I think this is all for me , I really don’t have much to say 🙂
In Domenica Ruta’s profoundly original novel, the end of the world comes once a year. Every May 28, humanity gathers to anticipate the planet’s demise–and to celebrate as if the day is truly its last. On this holiday, three intersecting sets of characters embark on a possibly last-chance quest for redemption. In Boston, bookish wunderkind Sarah is looking for love and maybe a cosmic reversal from the much older Kurt, a tattoo artist she met at last year’s Last Day BBQ–but he’s still trying to make amends to the family he destroyed long ago. Dysfunctional Karen keeps getting into trouble, especially when the voices she’s been hearing coax her to abandon everything to search for her long-lost adoptive brother; her friend Rosette has left the Jehovah’s Witnesses to follow a new pastor at the Last Kingdom on Earth, where she brings Karen on this fateful day. Meanwhile, above them all, three astronauts on the International Space Station, Bear, an American; Russian Svec; and billionaire Japanese space tourist Yui, contemplate their lives as well as their precious Earth from afar. With sparkling wit, verbal ingenuity, and wild imagination, Ruta has created an alternate world in which an ancient holiday brings into stark reflection our deepest dreams, desires, hopes, and fears. In this tour-de-force debut novel she has written a dazzling, haunting love letter to humanity and to our planet.
Until next time ,
Stay strong and change the world .
