The end of man was not signaled by marauding gangs or explosions, but with silence. People simply grew older knowing a younger generation would not be there to replace them. The final two residents in the neighborhood of Camelot, an old man and his invalid brother, are trapped in their house by forests full of cats and dogs battling with the bears and wolves to eat anything they can find. As the man struggles to survive, he recounts all the ways society changed as the human population continued to shrink-the last movie Hollywood ever made, the last World Series that was played, how governments around the world slowly disbanded. THE MAN WHO WATCHED THE WORLD END is the haunting account of a man who has witnessed the world fade away. It is also a story about the power of family.… (mais)

The book was well written and had its fun and interesting parts but some things I wasn't too crazy about.

For instance, I liked the way it was written as a diary, but it focused too much on the past and not enough on the actual day to day experiences living in that situation. I loved the whole idea of the animals all going back to their feral roots, but it was usually only talked about to remind you (too often I think) of how old and helpless the character was. I also thought it focused too much on the "blocks" and their story.

It was still an enjoyable book with a different spin on the post-apocalyptic setting that is worth reading, I guess I was just hoping for more. ( )

A very moving and touching account of humanity's slow journey toward extinction, as seen through the eyes of one man desperately trying to retain his humanity. The story was told in the form of daily journal entries as the main character cares for his brother and discussed his thoughts and feelings, and redirects on times when life was normal.

I listened to the audiobook version, which was an excellent production. The story was a unique and interesting take on the end of the world. The writing was intelligent and expressive, filled with moments of humor, thoughtfulness and sadness. I'd be happy to read the next installment of The Great Devolution series. ( )

Picked up the sample because the cover caught my eye when I was purchasing some books on Amazon. It is a post-apocalyptic tale that had a few deviations from the norm for the genre. The most important one being the age of the protagonist. The book was well formatted and GSP (grammar, spelling, punctuation) gets an A .

That is what worked for me, however, I won't be purchasing. The mechanics of the actual tale didn't gel. We are down to the last handful of aged survivors in a world where humans cannot produce viable spawn, yet everything works perfectly... water, electricity, etc. It doesn't work for me with how the author wants to stress the flora and fauna have taken over.

I might pick it up if were free, but won't spend money on it. ( )
