The End We Start From

In the midst of a mysterious environmental crisis, as London is submerged below flood waters, a woman gives birth to her first child, Z. Days later, the family are forced to leave their home in search of safety. As they move from place to place, shelter to shelter, their journey traces both fear and wonder as Z's small fists grasp at the things he sees, as he grows and stretches, thriving and content against all the odds.This is a story of new motherhood in a terrifying setting: a familiar world made dangerous and unstable, its people forced to become refugees. Startlingly beautiful, Megan Hunter's The End We Start From is a gripping novel that paints an imagined future as realistic as it is frightening. And yet, though the country is falling apart around them, this familys world of new life and new hope sings with love....

    THE END WE START FROM by Megan Hunter - Thank you so much to Grove Atlantic for providing my free copy!

    This tiny little book is written in gorgeous prose; it almost feels like a long-form poem. It begins with a disaster of water levels rising and causing England to mostly go under water. A woman gives birth to her only son, Z, and she and her husband, R, do what they need to do to survive. They pick up and move upward and onward in order to stay out of harm’s way.

    The story seems sparse because i

    Congratulations to Megan Hunter for a well-written first novel. A young woman gives birth to a son as London is submerged by floodwaters and everyone flees. She, her partner, and her son flee north into a dangerous territory to save themselves. The story is centered on the woman bonding with her son under extraordinary conditions. Set in the future, the book ultimately demonstrates renewal and rebirth. The story has much tragedy, yet it didn't evoke emotion from me - I couldn't seem to care abou ...more

    This slender novel was the subject of a bidding frenzy at the London Book Fair and my Twitter feed has been singing its praises for the past few months. I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy so I decided to see what all the commotion is about.

    The story is set in the UK of the near future. An unprecedented environmental catastrophe occurs and much of London lies underwater. Chaos reigns - nobody was prepared for a disaster of this magnitude. The narrator is forced to flee her apartment wi

    Blurring the lines between poetry and prose, Megan Hunter's debut novel is a spare and beautiful thing.

    Taking place during a flood - maybe apocalyptic, or maybe only viewed as such by our nameless protagonist - The End We Start From chronicles the flight of a small new family, caught in events beyond their imagining and control. But larger than that looms the disruption of parenthood - the changes that occur in body and personality that centre around the new tiny person.

    The writing itself is go

    This is a strange book.

    It’s about a women, her baby and her husband who wants to survive in a world that ends.

    It’s written in a poetical way, so it’s like you’re reading a really long beautiful text or poem.

  • Aentee

    This is short fiction yet I struggled to finish it. Never has an apocalypse seem more mundane. Perhaps I am missing the point of the novel, but if this is what literary writing is like, I want no part in it. Erratic, scattered, detached writing. Characters identifiable only via the letters of the alphabet. There are sections where the writing is admittedly beautiful, but not enough to save me from the sense that I just read a whole lot of nothing.

    Actual Rating: 1.5

    Agh. I really thought I would love this. I'm a huge fan of dystopian novels, and I love reading poetic, elegant writing. I wasn't sure how they would work together, but after reading this book - I'm not too sure it works.

    There were definitely places where the writing style was beautiful, but overall I think it worked against the story. Because it was so soft and airy, the story lost a lot of its intensity and speed - things that are typically very important to a dystopian unive
