There had to be someone out there whose fever broke before the worst of the symptoms hit, whose bruises faded away like shadows formed by clouds passing on a sunny day. Someone who has no understanding why they were spared. Someone like me. Surely, I couldn t be the only human left on the earth, could I?

This is a very, very, VERY short story. Just warning you now. However, that being said, it's a really GOOD 5-minute short story.

As far as post-apocalyptic tales go, the premise for this one is highly intriguing. We hear from an unnamed narrator, who seems to be the only human left on the planet. Some horrible type of virus has been unleashed by a terrorist enemy, and, as always happens, the people in charge slightly misjudged the effect that their airborne attack would have. Now we have our lone

This would've had a higher rating if it'd been longer. It's a very short read - 5 minutes at most. The little twist at the end just annoyed me because I really wanted to read more. I'd definitely read it if it was rewritten as a novella or full length novel.

Interesting short story. A bit disjointed. Nice hook in the ending which left me wanting to read more. 3.5/5

I read this in less than five minutes. I can appreciate authors writing short fiction for the Kindle, especially teasers for larger novels, but this little piece is just daft. The main character has no depth, the premise of an airborne virus consisting of the most virulent diseases the author could possibly think of is ridiculous, and there is no real end to the work either.

I would like to see this in a novella at the very least - it has vague promise. But similar to another reviewer, this seems

While the premise was interesting enough, it was the surprise ending that earned this story the 3 stars and had me wishing the style was more fluid and appealing to my taste. A very quick read that, as of this writing, is free for the kindle:
Another free short story found on

Quick read about one woman's perspective and 'journey' (literal and metaphorical) about being the supposed sole survivor in a post-apocalyptic world.
Slightly disjointed at times and lacks detailed description on some aspects but would make a decent novella if the author were to expand it.

As indicated by referrals, this was a very short story. Scary, horrific and sad, but eye opening in a " what if?" sense. The end was very thought provoking and a bit haunting. I liked it.

A deadly plague destroys all humanity, except for one woman who overcomes many obstacles while travelling across country, finally finding a deserted haven.

Is she the last person alive?

A very short but sad story. A lone woman, she might be the only one left. Everyone else is dead. Is she really the only one?
