It's slightly above "ok". It makes you curious enough to keep reading. But it's the sort of book that's always at risk of being put away for a week or two if you come across something more engaging. Also, there are some cheap shots; some passages are so obviously meant to make dog people cry that they fall flat. And there are a few silly nods to wokeness towards the end. Nothing too damning though, just clutter; and nowadays that's pretty much the only way to win a Hugo or a Nebula, so maybe we can cut the author some slack on that front. Finally, the ending feels a bit rushed. ( )

Dystopia has to be my top favorite genre of fiction. I am also a huge dog person, so dystopia+dogs= a book I couldn’t have passed up. It also equals a compelling and marvelous story that I highly recommend for fans of dystopia and adventure stories. ⁣
I won’t give away too much of the plot, because I want you to experience the journey alongside our protagonist Griz. Griz and his family live on a remote island near what used to be Scotland, long after society has collapsed and much of humanity no longer remains. A stranger appears and steals one of Griz’s dogs, and he and his other dog Jip set off after them into the great unknown. ⁣
This was not only a story of adventure but also survival, and one of hope. Griz’s sheer determination to get his dog back might have hard hearted readers scoffing at his immaturity, but I would have taken the same chance as Griz. The author’s writing left me feeling the same tension and terror as Griz sometimes felt, the same wonder as he discovered treasures of the past that we take for granted today (books, electronics, tools) Even knowing what I know now about the ending, I would not hesitate to return on this journey with Griz and Jip.

Wow.

Anything else would just spoil the experience. ( )

A Boy And His Dog At The End Of The World by C. A. Fletcher is a story set in a post-apocalyptic world. Griz and his family live on a small island off the coast of what used to be Scotland. This world didn’t go out with a bang but instead faded slowly away, propelled by the fact that most humans became unable to have children. It is now hundreds of years later, and the few humans who are left live isolated quiet lives. Griz’s family are used to being just them, but when a trader comes to their island and then leaves, taking Griz’s dog Jess with him, Griz doesn’t stop to think but just immediately sets out with his other dog, Jip, to recover his stolen dog.

Thus begins Griz’s and Jip’s journey that takes them through the ruins of the old world. There are many new things to discover and plenty of dangers. Griz keeps a journal and carefully documents his travels and what emerges is a suspenseful, well imagined story set against a backdrop of crumbing ruins overtaken by nature. This isn’t a heart pounding, fast moving story but a well written, interesting tale of the love and loyalty that can exist between dogs and humans.

I was totally absorbed by this story and although some may find it too much of a slow burner, I relished the time I spent with Griz and Jip. A Boy And His Dog At The End Of The World was an absorbing read that leaves a message that kindness, loyalty and hope will guide one through many pitfalls. Yes, that, plus it is always better to have a dog at your side. ( )

In this near-apocalyptic tale in a world with few human survivors, Griz sets out into a largely unknown world to retrieve a prized possession that was stolen. As he observes and wonders at the remains of the former world (our current world), the story becomes a reminder to appreciate what we have. Griz is likable, brave, and complex for a young character but the author overly uses misleading foreshadowing to create tension, even though the story is supposed to be written by Griz as a type of diary. Still, it's a great adventure with an admirable character, some unpredictable twists, and messages that will resonate with teen and adult readers. ( )
