The Last (Endling #1) by Katherine Applegate
Most of Applegate's books leave me feeling warm and fuzzy, often in tears, so it was with great excitement that I pushed everything else on my "to read" list aside on the day this arrived at the house. But here we are way too many days later (a bad sign right off the bat) and I'm neither warm nor fuzzy. The Last just didn't grab me at all. About halfway through I pictured my review being "eh." By the end of the book I just wanted to be done with it. I have little patience for books where much of the "action" is the heroes running away from a villain and every time they stop to rest, they have to go again. Obviously, other things happen along the way, but not enough to keep me very interested. I think, however, it might sell very well to my die hard Warriors fans.
