Publisher's Summary

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 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.

A quiet end to the world.

Would you listen to The Man Who Watched the World End again? Why?

I really loved this story. The world is ending, but is such a slow, quiet way. People started to be born without the ability to look after themselves. The population is ageing, and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.<br/>The story is not a happy one. The ending is inevitable, but I still needed to keep listening because I kept hoping I was wrong about what would happen.

Any additional comments?

I wasn't keen on Ray Chase's performance. I found his voice a little slow, but that could just be because I am not used to listening to American accents. It didn't put me off listening to the story.
