From the Editor

From the opening pages of author Joe Hart’s searing novel The Last Girl, it’s clear that this is an explosive story. I found myself riveted by the chilling question at the heart of the book: what if humanity could no longer produce female babies? Hart taps into deep fears and struggles that we all share, and he’s clearly onto something big here—something universal.

The canvas is huge: a world only one generation removed from our own, changed and ruined on the scale of Children of Men, or even Mad Max. But the reader sees it through the limited perspective of one fierce woman, Zoey, who has been isolated under government ‘protection’ all her life. I couldn’t turn away as she struggles to reconcile the propaganda she’s been fed with the dark reality at the edges of her vision.

Zoey has a choice to make: truth or safety. She has nothing to call her own: no real education, no family, not even a last name. But she does have an inner strength that drives her to fight for knowledge rather than settle for the false security of believing what she’s told. The Last Girl gives us a thrilling and terrifying glimpse of what it looks like when leaving everything behind is better than clinging to comfortable lies.

- Kjersti Egerdahl, Editor


Product description

Product Description

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Joe Hart.

A mysterious worldwide epidemic reduces the birthrate of female infants from 50 percent to less than 1 percent. Medical science and governments around the world scramble in an effort to solve the problem, but twenty-five years later there is no cure, and an entire generation grows up with a population of fewer than a thousand women.

Zoey and some of the surviving young women are housed in a scientific research compound dedicated to determining the cause. For two decades, she’s been isolated from her family, treated as a test subject, and locked away—told only that the virus has wiped out the rest of the world’s population.

Captivity is the only life Zoey has ever known, and escaping her heavily armed captors is no easy task, but she’s determined to leave before she is subjected to the next round of tests…a program that no other woman has ever returned from. Even if she’s successful, Zoey has no idea what she’ll encounter in the strange new world beyond the facility’s walls. Winning her freedom will take brutality she never imagined she possessed, as well as all her strength and cunning—but Zoey is ready for war.

Ever since Suzanne Collins entered the dystopian genre with her wonderful 'Hunger Games' trilogy life must be so much harder for other authors. 'The Last Girl' is a very good book, but it's no 'Hunger Games'.

'Last Girl' depicts a world where only boys are born. The main characters are the six remaining girls, kept in captivity before fulfilling their procreating purpose. The girls are convincing characters, some with major emotional problems as a result of their callous treatment. The psychology of their captors is also convincing as they maintain a clever propaganda campaign for justifying their actions. A gripping plot keeps things moving as lead character Chloe wrestles with the idea of escape.

On the minus side are plot holes and a lack of character depth. Chloe remains quite two dimensional throughout; it's as if she is a generic protagonist. This means it is hard to care a whole lot about her. And there are plot holes as the story progresses, the type where you ask 'would somebody really behave in this way?'

I think this is a really hard type of book to write. The author has to create an alternative universe as well as various characters, and that is a lot of imaginative effort. This is a very good book that I recommend but it's not quite up there with Susanne Collins.

The Last Girl is about the aftermath of a devastating plague whereby there are no female births. It is presumed, but left unproven, that this was some kind of virus. That's the science fiction side of it. Then there's the thriller, which is quite good. It is pretty obvious that it's part of a trilogy. I've already bought and read Part 2, which I found to be at basically the same level. Worth a read.

I loved this book so much I had to read the next one right away - Zoey never fails to surprise me. The twists and turns in this book always keep you guessing and Joe's great writing brings all the characters to life. I really hope they make this book series into a film - think it would work so well on the big screen.

Fantastic series. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book. I was a little slow to get into the book, I found towards the end of the first book I became intrigued.

Could not stop reading it. Now searching for number 2. Zoey is a great protagonist, a heroine worth remembering. Thanks.
