Had I read the blurb before reading the book, it might have seemed lacking. After all we are thrown right into the 'after' part of the story; we don't get to see people disappearing, the missing posters, nor people opting out. Maybe a better blurb would be something like:
"The end has already come. This is what followed. A collection of the stories of the survivers, the deserted. Those still clinging to hope, and those who have abandoned it."
Fortunately I didn't read the blurb, only the title and tag line, so I was able to fully enjoy this collection of short short stories, as it made for a good narration of the new (apocalyptic) reality the characters had to deal and cope with.
Each of the stories stands alone, yet, together and in order, they form a better and more complete picture. The few glimpses of characters possibly 'crossing paths', without actually doing so, pulled it all together.
'The Light' was particularly sad, I found, though each and every one was touching and harsh at the same time.

I enjoyed this collection of short stories from different people affected by the same apocalyptic disaster. It helped me understand the plot to know that this is a prequel to While We were Waiting, book 2, in a series. I love apocalyptic tales and this little book definitely grabbed my attention. I there is also a preview of the second book at the end. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Interesting touching collection of short, short stories set in the world after a vast number of people have just disappeared. Wish there had been more but did like what was there. These are more like a dozen trailers for a future full length book. I received this free and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.
It’s short and sweet (and a little bit bitter) and will leave you wanting more! If you like post apocalyptic dystopian stories, or even if you lean towards drama, then you’re likely to love this engaging read.
