An average collection of post-apocalypse/dystopian short stories for young adults (in the young adult world these two genres seem to be interchangeable...sigh). Some stories deserve a special mention though and these 4 stood out to me: "The Other Elder" by Beth Revis (set in the Across the Universe series), "Reunion" by Susan Beth Pfeffer, "Blood Drive" by Jeffrey Ford, and "How Th'irth Wint Rong by Hapless Joey @ Homeskool.guv" by Gregory Maguire (although it is hard to read as it is written in dialect).

Good for high school. Short story collection, speculative future fiction. Recommend for students who enjoy The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, and/or books with zombies or pandemics. ( )

REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Summary:

Would it be the ultimate freedom or would it be the ultimate slavery? 19 authors look in on worlds where people are surviving as best they can. Nuclear meltdown, plague, meteor, zombies, World War III, ice age, pandemic...what would the future look like? Would you want to live there?

Why this book:
I’m in to the post apocalyptic literature.
______________________________________________________________________________
After the Cure by Carrie Ryan
Favorite Character:
Vail, the cured survivor. She is fighting the urges that are still there even after they are cured.

Least Favorite Character:
The lecherous Doc at the Sanitation Center who was supposed to be rehabbing the cured, but seemed more interested in feeling up the female patients than in doing his job.

The Feel:
This has that great, close feeling that good apocalypse stories have. That feel like the other shoe isn’t just going to drop, but come crashing through the front door with a horde of zombies behind him.

Favorite Scene:
When she stands at the window of her house in the woods and stares out at the zombie that has fallen into her pool and can’t figure its way out. And she doesn’t want to shoot it either with the cure darts or with a gun. She just lets it fight its way around in the pool.

Pacing:
Great pace. Has that wish it was longer feel to it.

Hmm Moments:
The coffee pot moment at the Rehab facility. Knowing that you aren’t the only one who still feels the monster.

The reference she makes to those who still hunt and eat. Woof!

Why isn’t there a screenplay?
Would make a great movie.

Casting call:
One of the Emmas: Stone; Watson; Roberts; or Ellen Paige as Vail. They’re all great actresses and could communicate her feel and tragedy excellently.
______________________________________________________________________________
Valedictorian by N. K. Jemisin
Favorite Character:
Zinhle is everyone who was ever bored in school and didn’t feel challenged.

Least Favorite Character:
The airheads who failed to see the world around them in anything other than that cookie cutter light that was being fed to them.

The Feel:
This is a hard world to imagine. But it’s as easy as looking back at the times I was bored in high school, when I wasn’t challenged and didn’t feel like I belonged for a whole set of reasons that went way beyond what was perceived as general antisocialness. This one hit close to the bone even with its, admittedly, out there premise. I liked it.

Favorite Scene:
The pride Zinhle exhibits when she ponders the girls having to bring six girls to try and beat her down after three failed to get the job done the time before.

Pacing:
Well paced.

Why isn’t there a screenplay?
With as much of this being introspection as it is, I doubt it would convert.
______________________________________________________________________________
Rust with Wings by Steven Gould
Favorite Character:
Jeremy is a good kid. Smart. Fast. Brave.

Favorite Scene:
When he figures out how his dad can snorkel in the golf course pond to shield his pacemacker from the bugs.
______________________________________________________________________________
Faint Heart by Sarah Rees Brennan
Favorite Character:
The latest Rosamond.

The Feel:
That’s a whole lot of tragedy; all those boys and young men sent to compete and die, and the Rosamonds, cloned and raised in a glass cage as the prize for the competition designed to bleed a generation of the city’s youth to allow the society to live in peace. Horrific.

Hmm Moments:
There are elements of Disney’s Aladdin here mixed with elements of The Hunger Games to the detriment of the male youth of this society...and the poor genetically engineered clone of their queen, trapped in the destiny that encloses all her lineage.
______________________________________________________________________________
The Easthound by Nalo Hopkinson
Favorite Character:
Millie who seems to have a sense about the things that were coming, but couldn’t see them clearly. She saw what she wanted to see and didn’t see the danger close as it was.

Character I Most Identified With:
Millie.

The Feel:
The twist was well done. Even telegraphed, I didn’t really latch onto it. I bought the explanation that Millie was giving herself for the way things were happening.

Millie’s solution, her way to save her friends at the end.

Favorite Scene:
When they realize what has happened while they slept.

Pacing:
Great pace. Page turner. Wish it was longer.

Hmm Moments:
Are they puberty werewolves or zombie somethings? Not sure. Awesome. More werewolf, I think.

Why isn’t there a screenplay?
In a longer form, this would make for excellent movie or television fodder.

And other stories.

Last Page Sound:
Some good. Some alright.

Author Assessment:
Case by case basis.

Editorial Assessment:
Some of these were filler. Some were add on stories to other series.

Knee Jerk Reaction:
it’s alright

This book has 3 big things going for it:
1. They're young adult postapocalyptic, which is rare.
2. All of the stories take place only *after* the disaster has occurred--it doesn't really matter how it happened (or even what happened).
3. There's a preponderance of female authors, for once.

As with all short-story collections, some of these are better than others. Standouts for me were the ones by Genevieve Valentine, Sarah Rees Brennan (long-time fan, here) and Cecil Castellucci. ( )

I actually calculated the average rating I gave each short story and averaged out to exactly a 2.5. There were some really great stories in here, but most of them just lacked something. On the whole, I'm rather "meh" about this anthology. Full review to come. ( )

Ostensibly a collection of young adult stories with a post-apocalyptic or dystopian setting, these tales are remarkably sophisticated and intriguing, certainly more than good enough for the adult science fiction reader, and perhaps a bit much for readers much younger than their mid-teens. All posit extremely dark and hopeless futures in which authority is—rightfully—suspect.
