Today I’m so excited to share with you a book I received which has been probably my most anticipated read of 2021!  I first heard about this book last autumn and tried requesting it, I heard nothing for months but I finally have been lucky enough to be given a proof copy and I just cannot wait to read this book!  I just want to first say a big thank you to the wonderful Jen Harlow for the opportunity to read this proof.  Now let’s take a look at what has me all excited! 😀 …

The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird – 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 it’s too late? Will this be the story of the end of the world – or its salvation?


Doesn’t this sound so interesting?  I love a good near-future dystopian style story, and this reminds me of the book Afterland which dealt with a similar idea of a world that’s been left with few males.  I really can’t wait to read this book and will get to it and review it here as soon as I can.
