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.

I really love the concept of this story, it's original, interesting and also frightening. The characters, especially the lead, are also fantastic and I can't wait to see how they develop over the next two books.

I've read a lot of trilogies in my time but in almost all of them the first book is by far the best and the quality drops for each book thereafter. The most interesting thing will be whether the author can maintain the momentum created in the first book.

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.

I picked this up as part of "Kindle First" and was not disappointed. A dystopian thriller that is on par with Hunger Games for suspense and 'can't put it down page turning'. The action and events in this book are brutal on another level and my heart broke more than once for some of the characters.
Cannot wait to get started on the next book in this series.

I found this book a bit hard to get into at first, mainly because I couldn't understand why you would treat the last young women on earth like felons in a correctional facility. What was happening in the rest of the world? You wouldn't know because as usual America is the centre of the universe. However it is well written and the action ratchets along nicely to the end.

Interesting formula although I don't think someone who had been living her whole life in a sequestered environment would adapt to the outside world so easily.

I will still read Book 2 when it comes out to see what happens next.

An end world type story from a very different angle. A scenario that I would never have thought of... and hope it never becomes fact. Jealousy, prejudice, hatred, greed, determination, kindness and many more adjectives. It's all here. A must read.

When I first read a little about this book I was curious and sceptical that a series could be written based on the premise about the last women on "earth" (aka the usual inward-looking USA mindset).
It actually is quite well written with a plot that engages and is fast paced enough that I couldn't put it down at times.
The characters come out slowly and whilst the motives behind some are still blurry after two books I still find them relatable enough.
Great book that provides a bit of food for thought.

The beginning of this was slow, and in some parts a bit nasty, but it got to the stage where I was speedreading, not because I was bored but because I just wanted to find out what comes next, and next, and next. I look forward to the next in the series coming out.
