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 brought stories of the deserted lands beyond our horizons. I liked him - until I woke to find he had stolen my dog. So I chased him into the ruins of the world.

I just want to get my dog back, but I found much more than I ever imagined was possible. More about how the world ended. More about what my family's real story is. More about what really matters...

A BOY AND HIS DOG AT THE END OF THE WORLD is the most moving story you'll read this year. Reminiscent of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS and STATION ELEVEN - Griz's tale mixes sadness and hope in one unforgettable character's quest amid the ruins of our fragile civilisation.

Reviews

Epic in scope, enthralling, and full of human warmth

A story that is as heart-warming as it is heart-breaking . . . I'm still thinking about this book, weeks after finishing it

Family, loyalty, and humanity amid the lonely but beautiful wilderness of the end of the world - with a gut punch you'll never see coming. That twist! That ending! You'll remember A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World long after you finish reading

A truly engrossing survival story, which gives us a haunting vision of a ruined Britain that's both dangerous and strangely beautiful . . . brings hope and humanity to a cold and scary world

Fletcher does a masterful job keeping the stakes high and the suspense crackling while still creating plenty of space for readers to get to know Griz and explore this fascinating not-quite-empty world. 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

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. - Surf Coast Times
