Publisher's Summary

When a killer comet hurtles toward Earth, 18-year-old Joanna Murphy is selected to wait out the apocalypse in an underground bunker. She enters cryosleep with her close-knit team, preparing to resettle the planet after the atmosphere clears in 200 years.

Joanna is the only one who wakes up. 

Faced with a bunker full of bones and a blocked exit, Joanna must claw her way to the surface, figure out what happened to her team, and try not to panic - or die. That’s going to be tricky if she’s the only person left in the world.

From the author of The Seabound Chronicles, Steel and Fire, and Empire of Talents comes a story of resilience and optimism at the end of the world.

Loved it!

Wake Me After the Apocalypse is one of those books that makes me mad when real life interrupts my book! I did not want to out this one down! This is my second series by Jordan Rivet. I listened to her Seabound Chronicles first and highly recommend it. This is an entirely different apocalypse scenario, and just as good! In this series, humanity is threatened by a huge comet, much larger then the one that wiped out the dinosaurs. Joanna Murphy is one of the lucky ones picked to try to survive in a 200 year cryosleep in an underground bunker. I can't wait to see how this series plays out! Great narration by Kate Marcin! I lived all of her character voices!

Wake me after the apocalypse

Enjoyed the story and the narration.
I would have enjoyed a bit more details on how the team prepared, but that did not detract from the story. The lack of swearing and violence was a nice change from the majority of apocalypse stories and I wouldn’t hesitate to suggest it to my preteen son.

Seems as if story was written by a youth,

I thought the story concept was interesting, but the writing style was a bit juvenile to me. The characters behaved in ways I didn’t think were realistic. Many of the situations didn’t track well in my mind.

Refreshing post-apocalyptic book

Although this book doesn't have any zombies or crazed psychos like most post-apocalyptic books, it was really interesting and to be honest, it was really hard for me to put it down to work on school work. I don't want to spoil it, but the book was a nice breath of fresh air after reading so many zombie or heavy duty apocalyptic books. I love how the main character is optimistic, idealistic, hard working, and resilient. I will agree that maybe at the beginning, the story focused alittle too much on the team, but I enjoyed learning more about all the characters. I'm looking forward to the next book (if there is one?!!?!?! i really hope so....)!

Happily surprised

I liked it a lot. Great story, interesting and not too soapy. I’d been looking for a good female main character in an apocalyptic book that wasn’t dumb. This book gives me hope!

Young adult novel, low on action or original ideas. Teenage drama

Maybe this series smartens up later, but this book was difficult to finish.

The characters are pie in the sky, anti-gun idealists set in a Wayward Pines sort of idea.

Honestly the Wayward Pines idea was why I bought this book. But this story wasted the opportunity and explored a cardboard love story. It was a bad setup. Too bad, too, because it could have been fun and I won’t buy the next book.

I feel like I just read a missed opportunity. The author can write, but took 8 hours and essentially whiffed with teenage girl emotional drama.

Couldn’t stop listening to this audiobook!

Great story! I couldn’t stop listening to it! The narrator is one of the best I’ve listened too! Easy listening narrators are few. Exciting, jaw dropping story. I really hope there’s a sequel. I’m already looking at more of the this authors books!

Starts little slow and then.....

I really enjoyed the book especially when it picked up. I wish this was a sequel bc I wanted to know more about where these characters end up in 20 more years! Maybe the author will turn this into a series bc she definitely left the ending at a place we’re she can do that! Worth a read!
