內容簡介

  當一場不明事件引發了末日,在崩壞的世界裡,忠誠、愛、人性的重量如何衡量?

  我的名字叫做葛里茲(Griz),我的生活不太一樣。
  我沒有朋友,而我從小到大,認識的人不超過一支足球隊。父母告訴我過去世界曾經多麼擁擠,但如今不同以往了。但我們一家人也不全然是孤獨的。在這遙遠的島上,至少我們還有彼此與我們的狗。

  然後小偷來了。

  雖然沒有明文規定,小偷的行為是不對的。但你的所作所為,就必然料到我會追著你到世界盡頭。假如我們對所愛的人事物毫無忠誠,那一切還有什麼意義?

  這本令人愛不釋手的小說充滿奇想,帶點末日後的孤寂感,巧妙的人物性格、意想不到的發展、引人入勝的情節,交織著倖存、勇氣與希望,喜愛《如果我們的世界消失了》(Station Eleven)或是《末日殭屍女孩》(暫譯,The Girl With All the Gifts)的讀者絕對不能錯過,又一末日主題的傑出作品。

  "This un-put-down-able story has everything--a well-imagined post-apocalyptic world, great characters, incredible suspense, and, of course, the fierce love of some very good dogs."--Kirkus Reviews (starred)

  When a beloved family dog is stolen, her owner sets out on a life-changing journey through the ruins of our world to bring her back in this fiercely compelling tale of survival, courage, and hope. Perfect for readers of Station Eleven and The Girl With All the Gifts.

  My name's Griz. My childhood wasn't like yours. I've never had friends, and in my whole life I've not met enough people to play a game of football.

  My parents told me how crowded the world used to be, but we were never lonely on our remote island. We had each other, and our dogs.

  Then the thief came.

  There may be no law left except what you make of it. But if you steal my dog, you can at least expect me to come after you.

  Because if we aren't loyal to the things we love, what's the point?

  Review
  "The hunt for Jess propels this story forward like a rocket, and Fletcher does a masterful job keeping the stakes high and the suspense crackling while still creating plenty of space for readers to get to know Griz and explore this fascinating not-quite-empty world. This un-put-down-able story has everything-a well-imagined post-apocalyptic world, great characters, incredible suspense, and, of course, the fierce love of some very good dogs."―Kirkus Reviews (starred)

  "Epic in scope, enthralling, and full of human warmth."―M.R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts

  "A sharp, meditative exploration of family, loyalty, and humanity amid the lonely but beautiful wilderness of the end of the world-but with a gut punch you'll never see coming. You'll remember A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World long after you finish reading."―Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M

  "This novel has everything I love about a story: fully realized characters, beautiful writing, and utterly believable, even frightening, world-building. I promise you're going to love it."―Louisa Morgan, author of The Secret History of Witches

  "Fletcher's narrative...has a propulsive and engaging rhythm and should please fans of postapocalyptic dystopias, young adult and adult alike."―Booklist
