Publisher's Summary

A flawed man, a mute girl, and a spirited dog could be humanity's last hope - or its doom.

It's the end of the world, but Reg won't mind the peace and quiet - after all, he's always lived a solitary life. And his happy-go-lucky dog, Lineker, is ecstatic to spend more time with his beloved owner. Together, they plan to wait out the impending doom in their second-floor apartment, hiding themselves away from the riots outside. 

But when an abandoned orphan shows up in the stairwell of their building, Reg and Lineker must leave their place of safety and accompany her into the ruins of a fallen city. In their desire to rescue the child, both man and dog must face the guilt of the past and discover a hope for the future....

The dog is ok.

For anyone who cannot start a book where the dog dies- go ahead. It’s safe. And it is brilliant.

Dystopian from man and dog

I cannot remember when I last enjoyed a book from start to finish. Starts in a dystonian London and the experience of a lone man and dog who have hidden away for three years without so much as talking to another human. Enter a young girl who completely upends that existence. The story, narrated by both the man and dog, could not have been presented better. The dog, by the way, has an endearing Cockney accent which only adds to his charm. So much to describe and no words to give it enough credit. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the narrator both did a fabulous job! Highly recommend!

Another excellent read

I read several genres and everyday. I originally found this author after finishing a post apocalyptic bender. As always there were many suggestions from audible. Fortunately for me I found Mr Walker’s first book “The End of the World Running Club. It was not the typical chest thumping apocalypse story like most. Very little about prepping, weapons or most things. It was very well written with a strong sentiment of love and human spirit. This book was no different in those areas. Be aware that this book is from two perspectives. Chapters vary between the decent loner owner and switches to his foul mouthed dog. Rich in humor. Tender and well written. I wish this author would write many more but I believe it could be suggested in another genre. People are missing a prize.

Scary and dark and...

I was not expecting this book to be so dark. It takes place in a very ugly time in an alternate version of Britain. The dire situation contrasts with the voice of the dog who experiences life with all the hope and enthusiasm well known to dog lovers. A political dystopian novel that feels uncomfortably cautionary, and at times is downright bleak balanced by love applied as a salve throughout. I am so glad I found this book - if you like dystopian genre this is a great read.

Linkaaaaah!

I laughed, I cried, I laughed again. Loved the structure -- the back and forth of chapters between dog and owner. Wonderful narration. The story is written well, and should work for anyone who loves dogs and dystopian fiction. I'll absolutely listen again.

cant listen to a book with vulgar language

listened to 5 minutes...couldn't continue. I do not appreciate foul language. I listen to books to relax.... not be offended... I get enough of this type of language in life.

It was okay

The story started out really slow for me and I found it a bit boring. The title doesn't make much sense because at no time in this story does the dog ever seem to be the last dog on Earth. He talks about his other dog friends constantly. There was no big build up to anything in the story at all. Great narration though. I kept going with this book mainly because of the narration and the personality of the dog.

This is a gem.

Not what I expected, but it's the best book I've read in some time. It was like picking up a shining piece of glass only to discover it's a diamond.
