Ark (Forward collection) Kindle Edition
Audible narration by Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld)
On the eve of Earth’s destruction, a young scientist discovers something too precious to lose, in a story of cataclysm and hope by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Divergent trilogy.
It’s only two weeks before an asteroid turns home to dust. Though most of Earth has already been evacuated, it’s Samantha’s job to catalog plant samples for the survivors’ unknowable journey beyond. Preparing to stay behind and watch the world end, she makes a final human connection.
As certain doom hurtles nearer, the unexpected and beautiful potential for the future begins to flower.
Veronica Roth’s Ark is part of Forward, a collection of six stories of the near and far future from out-of-this-world authors. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single thought-provoking sitting.

<i>“You have to hold just a few things dear, because that’s what love is. Particular. Specific.”</i>
The story touches on some pretty heavy topics. Love, grief, what it is to be alive... It makes you pause to think, but not enough to let you dwell on the lessons it's teaching properly. I guess you could say it suffers from being a short story. I would have liked more of everything despite it being well written and wrapped up rather neatly.
There were some thought-provoking observations about life made by Roth in this story which stopped me in my tracks and made me ponder on the significance of life. My main criticism is that, with such an interesting idea behind it, I wish the characters had been developed slightly more and the ending had been fleshed out more fully.
