Bringing criticism to the current destruction of the planet, The World After Us It is a work that tries to do its part to warn of the dangers of late containment and lack of care for the environment.

Featuring a family who decides to rent a house to isolate themselves and enjoy the rest of their vacation, The World After Us shows a world in disaster where we don't know what is happening, but the animals are crazy and communications are impossible. Amanda and Clay are staying with their children Archie and Rose in the elegant and isolated house G.H. and Ruth. But the family can only enjoy one day of rest, beach and luxury, as the owners show up at night, asking to stay there due to a blackout in New York that makes it impossible to return to the couple's apartment.

While living together, somewhat suspicious of each other, the two families realize that the blackout is just one of the strange events. Lack of television broadcasts, absence of telephone communication and unusual behavior of animals show that something serious is happening in the world and only they seem to be safe.

The suspense of the work is due to the events that promise to change everyone's lives. However, it is the least worked part of the book, Rumaan Alam uses environmental destruction, wars, excess energy use and poor resource management as the basis for the plot. The author's critical intention is clear, which serves as a warning for the current moment we live in.

With an open ending, the book can even give a feeling of emptiness in its ending, however, that is the idea. Alam does not choose a reason for his disasters, but rather tries to appeal to the mass destructions that have been occurring, where the environment asks for help and no one does anything to prevent it. With this, it seems logical that we don't know what comes next, just that the world as we know it will no longer be the same.

The World After Us It is a thriller where the critical message stands out, leaving the plot in the background. It is a work that requires sensitivity to the theme, which is why it can be disappointing when it does not give the reader everything ready at the end. However, it does its part by delivering an important message that must be understood, or we will never know what the world will be like after us.
