A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World by C.A. FletcherIf you read one book this year, I beg you that this be the one. The isolation of travelling through a depopulated world is the overriding characteristic of the novel. The imagination which Fletcher exposes in considering how exactly the world would look if suddenly we were all unable to reproduce, is masterful. Fletcher tenderly observes facets of life which we take for granted: the miracle of recorded music, or how it feels to be surrounded by people, making for visually lush reading. However, Griz is thoughtful, deeply introspective and reflective, and a voracious reader. That, taken in combination with the fact that a post-apocalyptic world requires people to grow up fast in order to survive, left me feeling that it was plausible enough for a younger narrator to have a sophisticated and thoughtful voice.

Sort order. Admittedly, with the absence of his courage. Vic makes sure his dog is fed and Blood finds women for the horny year-old. At times I felt like I was 12 years old struggling th Griz, there was one section in the second quarter of the book where I found the book to be a bit too slow because Griz was pretty much alone!

View 2 comments! Griz was a great character and I found him really easy to relate to from the start. The huge, sprawling and long neglected world that has long since gone to ruin? Hiw got better when Griz meets his first person on the mainland.
