This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
NOTE: I won a free eBook copy of this book in MOBI format from LibraryThing's Early Reviewers (February 2021).

When I ponder The Apocalypse, I rarely stop to think about what would happen to some of the secondary comforts of our daily lives. In reading Silleck's novel, I got a glimpse into the fate of cake and its devotees. Cake, like fine art and manicures, is portrayed as one of the markers of a society with limited strife. Pete, the protagonist, is a skilled amateur baker who pines for the halcyon days of pre-Apocalypse life and seeks the creation and consumption of cake even when he is stuck in survival mode.

Silleck's novel is one of adventure and survival that is humorous even in the most dire of situations. The portrayal of warring clans satirizes the social divisions of contemporary American society. Though the novel's pacing was excellent, I found the chapters involving Betty somewhat awkward: the connection between her and the Blue Clan was not explained in detail, and her involvement with Pete tainted the novel's conclusion. Still, I found "The End of Cake" a fun and entertaining read. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I really, really liked this. It's a good-hearted twist on apocalyptic fiction that weirdly leaves you feeling good about the collapse of society. What is life without cake? Pete the Baker strives to keep one little piece of humanity alive with his post-apocalyptic bakery, but of course fate has other plans. It's a buddy story, a trek through The Waste(land), contains true love, and has more than a little humor. Not deep, but very enjoyable. ( )
