I’m a really big fan of Susan Beth Pfeffer‘s books. I was a total fan geek when she responded to my email and sent me an autographed bookplate.
I just finished reading the last book in her trilogy, This World We Live In.
I’ve already talked about the first two books, Life as We Knew It and The Dead & The Gone, and how much I loved them — even though they made me ponder if I had enough food stocked in my pantry.
I’ve always been mesmerized by disasters and other types of dystopian fiction, but what makes these books in the trilogy so resonating are the characters and their relationships. And I also love how the author brought the protagonists from the two previous books together for this last installment.
These characters will stay with you after you have finished reading these books. And although it looks like the author has finished writing new material, I wouldn’t mind at all if she revisited this world in the future.
