    Description

    Famine. Death. War. Pestilence. These are the harbingers of the biblical apocalypse, of the End of the World. In science fiction, the end is triggered by less figurative means: nuclear holocaust, biological warfare/pandemic, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm. But before any catastrophe, there are people who see it coming. During, there are heroes who fight against it. And after, there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild. "The Apocalypse Triptych" will tell their stories.

    Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams and best-selling author Hugh Howey, The Apocalypse Triptych is a series of three anthologies of apocalyptic fiction. The End is Nigh focuses on life before the apocalypse. The End Is Now turns its attention to life during the apocalypse. And The End Has Come explores life after the apocalypse. The End Is Nigh is about the match. The End Has Come is about what will rise from the ashes. The End Is Now is about the conflagration.

    Featuring stories by: Tananarive Due, Scott Sigler, Annie Bellet, Charlie Jane Anders, Seanan McGuire, Sarah Langan, Nancy Kress, David Wellington, Ken Liu, Elizabeth Bear, Ben H. Winters, Megan Arkenberg, Jonathan Maberry, Jake Kerr, Daniel H. Wilson, Will McIntosh, Jamie Ford, Desirina Boskovich, Hugh Howey, and Robin Wasserman.

    Narrated by: Stefan Rudnicki, Mur Lafferty, Kate Baker, Lex Wilson, Anaea Lay, Tina Connolly, Norm Sherman, Stephanie Grossman, Folly Blaine, Rajan Khanna, Windy Bowlsby, Scott Sigler, Laurice White.

    Enjoyably distopic distraction

    An enjoyable collection of tales well worth listening to. I repassed some of them more than once which I only do when I enjoy the story.

    Visions of sadness

    There are no happy endings here. Only small victories and shattered dreams. Like its predecessor, not all stories and narrators are equal. Still worth listening to, if you like thought provoking stories.

    Loses a star because the last story is That Bad.

    Excellent idea and overall excellent follow on to the first book. A couple of stories didn't quite fit the "co" part, more post apocalyptic. The standalone stories were good additions.

    Hit and miss anthology

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It *mostly* was. The two things I noticed were (1) these stories didn't really follow the theme of series as well as those in the first book - there were some great stories that really didn't have much to do with a 'the world is ending' anthology. (2) the readers were REALLY all over the place! Some were really good, and some were so awful I just couldn't listen to that story.

    What other book might you compare The End Is Now to and why?

    There are a couple other apocalypse theme anthologies on Audible, but really, it's compares well with any sci-fi story collection.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Various narrators, the quality was really inconsistent.

    Did The End Is Now inspire you to do anything?

    I may start saving more canned food and fresh water .. :-)

    Any additional comments?

    nope

    Stop using Laurice White as a narrator.

    i skipped her story in the last book and skipped it in this one as well. She sounds like she's in 7th grade reading her creative writing essay about something super serious. She is monotone and boring as f. it sent me into a small fit of rage last book and I angrily exclaimed when she was the first stinking narrator in this one. Come on!

    (will update review with more on other aspects soon)

    bad ending...

    I am afraid to say, this was a major disappointment after the first two books, which I read and loved. It didn't keep my attention, I couldn't hear it in "colors", which comes with a book you are immersed in. Anyway, just my thoughts.

    Great anthology but pay close attention...

    (Same review posted for all three books) This was a great anthology of stories. I wish I had realized that the following two books were continuations or expansions of the stories in the previous book sooner than half way through the second book. I think it took a story I was really invested in in the second to jar my memory back to the first. I re-listened to several of the stories in the first book to follow the story along and bought the third book because I really wanted to see how they ended. I definitely recommend these for anyone that likes end of the world fiction but doesn't have the time to listen to 6 or 13 hours.

    Part 2 of the Apocalypse Triptych

    Not as strong as the End is Nigh, but then again it's harder to review a collection of stories, as some will always resonate with us better than others.

    There were a few stories in the End is Nigh that I was disappointed to find didn't have a sequel in this one, the End is Now. But there were also a lot of delightful stories that didn't have a prequel in the End is Nigh, as well. So, give and take, ya know?

    Anyway, if you enjoyed the first book at all, you'll definitely enjoy this one, but maybe to a greater or lesser degree depending on which of the individual stories really captivated you.

    If you've not read the End is Nigh, that's okay---none of the stories that are sequels need to have their prequels read first. Rather than being direct sequels (for the most part) they are stand alone stories that happen to take place in a sequential order within a given setting.

    Very solid continuation of the trilogy.

    What made the experience of listening to The End Is Now the most enjoyable?

    Most of the writers who contributed pieces to the first in this series continued those stories here in the second; often those stories picked up decades later and were told from the POV of completely different characters, though, which had a lot of impact on which stories continued to interest me and which didn't.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    Yes-- most of these narrators are excellent, though Stephanie Grossman reads like a sixth-grade student called upon to read aloud from a chemistry textbook. She is laughably horrible as a narrator. My 9yo granddaughter could inflect more emotion and interest.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Makes a simple nuclear winter look like a day at the spa."
