The Last Three is a short novel that tells the story of Jon, a young guy living on the edge of hopelessness in a corroding and soul sucking city that threatens to consume all who dare walk its streets.

The writing here is exceptional in its portrayal of a decaying city and its struggling inhabitants. It truly is a tale of modern day dystopia, painting an accurate picture of urban decay as more people become homeless, quaint businesses are forced to close up shop only to be replaced by shadi

The author himself asked me if I'd review this book, and as soon as I read the Amazon synopsis, I knew I'd love it. And I absolutely did. The story is set in a sort of modern dystopian world, and revolves around this guy called Jon. Throughout the novella, it talks a little bit about his past, and how he will proceed in the future. But it is a tale of mice and men - no matter how you might plan for the future, something can - and will - change it.

What I first of all want to say about this novell

I'm very picky when it comes to deciding what to read. Most of the books I end up picking up come highly recommended from several sources. And most of them are of the young adult genre. Reading The Last Three by Almon Chu convinced me to try and widen my reading choices. As you may never know where you might find a good book! The Last Three is part dystopian, part frighteningly real and on the whole, extremely engaging. The world of The Last Three is steadily built w

I spend most of my time with my nose in a YA or MG book, so I don’t often read books like Almon Chu’s The Last Three. Then again, there really aren’t many books out there like The Last Three.

As a short novella, this is a very quick read, but it isn’t a story that will leave you quickly. Within the span of less than a hundred pages, Chu has managed to create a deeply powerful story and explore the very honest and captivating unraveling of one man. Not easily categorized, The Last Three is set in

This novella is probably one of the best I have ever read. Usually, with novellas and short stories (even the best ones), I feel that the author has tried to rush the story and get everything important in it that they wanted to say while still maintaining the short story/novella requirements. The Last Three, however, is written in such a way that everything important is revealed when it is meant to be and I felt that there was no sense of rush about this book.

Another thing that I loved about thi

I received this novella in exchange for an honest review.

This novella was gripping, dark, and descriptive. The entire story was oozing with dirty and grime and disgust and torment. The way Chu describes the city was so well done. I felt like I was walking down the same sidewalk looking at everything and feeling the grime and nastiness around me. This story had a Chuck Palahniuk feel to it for me. Not only was it descriptive and dark and twisted, but it was well written with so many observations

I always say: The importance is not the length of the book, the importance is the quality!
And this one is a GOOD book. I'm really surprised on how good it is.

It’s a TOTALLY different Dystopia. First of all, you really can relate to this world and most of the time it didn't feel like a future world. The decadence, the sorrow and the sadness of the environment are some kind of what we are living nowadays. The lifestyle that Jon has sometimes felt like a premonition of things to come if we don't ch

This novella was a complete surprise to me. I didn’t expect to find so many levels of meaning throughout its pages, as sometimes stories or novellas can feel rushed and not mined for all the nuances they could actually have. This one, however, is a good example of how one can be written correctly.
The city, the grunge that fills it, is a definitely a protagonist in these pages. As many classical authors have done before, the scenery becomes much more than just background noise, instead coming to

First off: Everyone should seriously go to amazon right now and buy this book. This book is freaking amazing and the best and most unbelievable part is it was on $0.99!! The Last Three is one of those books you don't forget quickly.

Almon Chu perfectly describes the city from the beggars on the train to the "wannabe gangsters" trying to start a fight if you even glance their way. From the first page when we meet Jon he had me hooked, curious to know what Jon's story was. I found it really refresh

This story packs a big punch for being novella or short story length. The gritty cover is perfect for what is inside its pages.

I was completely immersed in this sliver of world. It was like I could feel the environment being described. It's a sad tale of betrayal and wasted life. The main character, Jon, is living his entire life based on a lie. A lie that ruins his life, crushes his psyche and destroys whatever else is left of him. It made me very sad for him mostly because he is so fervently l
