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 last movie Hollywood ever made, the last World Series that was played, how governments around the world slowly disbanded. 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.

This was great. Totally delivers. Loved it.
The Man Who Watched The World End by Chris Dietzel Certainly one to look out for! A detailed and steady paced story oozing quality from start to finish. Genius at work - more please!
A very moving and touching account of humanity's slow journey toward extinction, as seen through the eyes of one man desperately trying to retain his humanity. The story was told in the form of daily journal entries as the main character cares for his brother and discussed his thoughts and feelings, and redirects on times when life was normal. I listened to the audiobook version, which was an excellent production. The story was a unique and interesting take on the end of the world. The writing was intelligent and expressive, filled with moments of humor, thoughtfulness and sadness. I'd be happy to read the next installment of The Great Devolution series.
