The World Over Makes me want to cry. It is so short and so full of emotion. I have really enjoyed the first two books in Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy. I’m eagerly anticipating the third book. So, when I saw that she had a few short stories on her website, I decided to read one. I plan on reading all of them now.
What if you were the last couple on Earth? What if you knew that both of you would die, no matter what you did and how much you loved each other? I wonder how they got to this place. I wonder what happened to the planet.
You want to have hope as the story progresses, the characters are developed. You root for them. It was a short story that packed a lot of punch.
