Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Last Dog on Earth by Adrian J Walker, read by David John and Jonathan Aris.

Every dog has its day....

And for Lineker, a happy-go-lucky mongrel from Peckham, the day the world ends is his: finally a chance to prove to his owner just how loyal he can be.

Reg, an agoraphobic writer with an obsession for 90s football, plans to wait out the impending doom in his second-floor flat, hiding himself away from the riots outside.

But when an abandoned orphan shows up in the stairwell of their building, Reg and Lineker must brave the outside in order to save not only the child, but themselves....

Critic Reviews

"Very few dystopian novels push through to the horrors explored here. Fewer still reach these heights of lyricism, humour and decency." (Daily Mail)

Second chance

I wasn't a big fan of "The end of the world running club" but I am so glad I gave this author another chance. I loved it from start to finish. I loved the way it's split between the two main characters. What a great book.

Great book!

Loved this. Made me laugh out loud (and I listen mostly while running so that was a tad embarrassing) It's also gripping and pulls you along. It also brought me to tears in a couple of places. Great book!

Amazing

An amazing book. Very pertinent to what is happening now within our own politics.
Everyone should listen or read this book and take the message from within the story.

Unmissable!

Unique, funny, dark and moving dystopian novel that offers a fresh twist on the genre. Lineker, the Cockney mongrel is an unforgettable character who has a lot to say about human nature and the world of ‘the howl’.

unexpected pleasure

I loved this book. I didn't realise there were two narrators until I pulled up this book for review. I am a dog lover and tend to avoid dog based stories in case the dog gets the worst of it but he didn't really. The pace never lagged, the narration was brilliant. WARNING - does contain some bad language.

Superb performance, surprisingly moving

I was drawn to his book because of the setting, being a Peckham girl through and through. Sure enough, references to the roads around Peckham Rye where Reginald, the main character lives, had me hooked. Set in the near future, the unfolding events and description of London is worryingly plausible in the current, increasingly nationalistic Europe. Lineker, the dog in the story has become one of my favourite literary characters, brought to life by the wonderful narration. The language is colourful, but so typical of South London. At times I laughed my socks off, whilst on other occasions I was deeply moved. The story is simple enough, but It was totally engaging. Loved it!

A man and his dog... Fantastic

Another great read, if you like this kind of thing.
Great story about a man and his dog. The book has layers with the story on the surface an underlying emotions and perspectives. The dogs perspective seems aggressive and vulgar but once past this real passion. I know a guy like this dog! The narrator has, for me got the accent bang on with just the right level of emotion and dullness the character portrays. Well done all concerned in the creation of this audible book. Time flies when you engrossed in a book.

Good morals but explicit language


I did like this book, story was good with good morals in this near future post apocalypse Britain. Overall it had a feel goodness.

Its end of the world near future take but luckily no zombies. It’s told from two angles Reg the fifty sonethng chap and Linneker his dog.

Linekers language is unfortunately rather explicit and after a while it does pull the book down.
The expletives are used as adjectives, verbs and pronouns and it just gets a bit boring after a while.
However the narrator for the dog was brilliant despite this, not sure who to praise out of the two narrators

I have read the other book by Adrian Walker. The end of the world running club, which I would say is better.
