BOOK REVIEW: A BOY AND HIS DOG AT THE END OF THE WORLD by C. A. Fletcher
My name’s Griz. I’ve never been to school, I’ve never had friends, in my whole life I’ve not met enough people to play a game of football. My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, before all the people went away, but we were never lonely on our remote island.
We had each other, and our dogs. Then the thief came. He told stories of the deserted towns and cities beyond our horizons. I liked him – until I woke to find he had stolen my dog. So I chased him out into the ruins of the world. I just want to get my dog back, but I found more than I ever imagined was possible.
‘This un-put-down-able story has everything-a well-imagined post-apocalyptic world, great characters, incredible suspense, and, of course, the fierce love of some very good dogs’ – Kirkus (starred review).
‘A story that is as heart-warming as it is heart-breaking’ – Fantasy Hive A Boy and his Dog at the End of the World is the most moving story you’ll read this year. Perfect for readers of Life of Pi, The Girl with all the Gifts or Station Eleven – Griz’s tale mixes sadness and hope in one unforgettable character’s quest amid the remnants of our fragile civilization.
