Synopsis


GLASGOW, 2025.

Dr Amanda Maclean is called to treat a young man with a mild fever. Within three hours he dies. The mysterious illness sweeps through the hospital with deadly speed. This is how it begins.


The victims are all men.


Dr Maclean raises the alarm, but the sickness spreads to every corner of the globe. Threatening families. Governments. Countries.


Can they find a cure before itโ€™s too late? Will this be the story of the end of the world โ€“ or its salvation?


Compelling, confronting and devastating, The End of Men is the novel that everyone is talking about.




Thank you @BoroughPress for this advanced copy




My Review

This was an amazing story. Compelling, utterly devastating and at the same time extremely clever, the author writes this virus, that only attacks men in such a convincing way you almost believe it could be a possibility.


Read through the eyes of various narratives, mostly all women, you follow them from normality through to panic, tragedy at losing sons, fathers, brothers and husbands to the despair of life alone and adjusting to this new life.


This was the part for me that was hard to read, a woman recently widowed who takes her baby son away to a secluded cottage to survive only to lose him anyway. This broke my heart and made the story that little bit more frightening.


This is an unbelievably powerful read that will leave you thinking long after you have finished.
