Stepping completely out of my norm can be a really good thing! I am sure that’s a “real life” lesson, but in this case it’s a really good book! I listened to this story on the many long drives I’ve taken this week. It was narrated by the author and had twists and turns that I definitely didn’t see coming. It kept my interest during a high stress time and of that I’m appreciative and for that I definitely recommend it!!

A good, very creepy read, set on a small island off the coast of Scotland where something ... unpleasant ... finds its way into the world.

A definite standout in the field of soft post-apocalyptical fiction! "A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World" follows a world where some unknown event caused most of the worlds population unable to have kids. Now an estimated few thousand survive, and they are all going quietly about their days in their own pockets of the world. Grizz, our main character, has barely ever seen anyone else than immediate family, but an encounter with a thieving stranger sets Grizz off on a quest- to get his dog back.

In many ways it's a very quiet and introspective story, unlittered with tons of dialogue or any big explanations of the past. Rather, Grizz spends a lot of time talking about books, the way he imagines the world used to be, how it might look in the future, and all the different aspects of humanity and what makes one human. But don't be fooled: it's not a dry or dull book! There were so many suspenseful moments I found myself tempted to just flip ahead pages to see how things were going to turn out. I'm fascinated with how C.A. Fletcher was able to craft such a riveting story without relying on the traditional means; he's got a real talent for foreshadowing and details that really create a wonderful reading atmosphere!

This honestly isn't a book I usually would have picked up, but am super happy I did. It's a truly unique story and I'd recommend it to fans of "Station Eleven" by Emily St. John Mandel or "Chaos Walking" by Patrick Ness.

PS- Usually I can call a decent amount of plot twists but there was one in particular (not the first one but the second one) that made my jaw DROP.

The story is very good. It's set post-apocalypse but this is just the setting, and is a matter-of-fact, not a woe-is-us part of the story. It's an adventure through an empty UK landscape, more than a 100 years into the future but without any active destruction of the word, just the wear-and-tear of 100 years without human interventions.

There is a nice progression, the main character is consistent, the resolution is not out-of-left-field, but I hadn't figured it out either. There isn't any adult content, but it's not a YA book, at all. I will be looking for more books by Fletcher.… (lisätietoja)
