I don't think that any other book has left me with so many questions. It stayed with me for ages, I rarely think that I'll read a book again, but one day I'll revisit this one.
If you've read it, you'll know what I mean ...it was so real, but why, how and really? What a great story.
I still have a lump in my throat and wiping away tears after just having finished it.Alone is by no means soppy or sentimental and is packed with nail-biting moments. I would definately read this book again.
It is upon reflection a genius premise. It doesn't fulfill stereo types with regard to this subject, but it does dare to go where no man has been before...
If, on the other hand, you want to take it as a manual of what you should do if you happen to find yourself in a similar situation, four stars.
However I did enjoy this book despite it not meeting my initial expectations I really enjoyed the book.
I was immediately engaged by the story which as other reviewers have stated is a day to day account of what the main character (Ralph) does to survive being alone. The bit about the rats and the bear certainly raised the excitement levels.
I agree that there is little exploration of the main character's emotions but it didn't detract from my enjoyment.I was touched by the relationship between Ralph and his dog and I found those parts of the story very moving.
I must admit that the ending left me a little bemused and there are some typos in the book but for a free down load it is readable and engaging.
I like that fact that things you would not necessarily consider when thinking this through are included and that it follows ecological streams and that it could really happen because there is no scientific proof that its not happening such as a robot uprising!
To think that you are the only person in the world is for one second the most terrifying thought ever but even then you can't fully experience this as it hasn't happened.
A truely wonderfull story that makes the reader think and question what you understand about life.
The ending was brilliant I was worried that it would go the easy way out but it doesnt (i dont want to ruin it!)
Sure there are a few grammatical errors and spelling mistakes throughout the novel, please don't let that put you off picking this up.
I went into this book expecting a sci-fi post apocalyptic story but soon realised it was more a story of copying with life after the event.
The author could have went into why Raplh was the only one left but for me that was not needed as your too engrossed in how Ralph and Jason will survive in this 'new world'.
If you haven't already, pick up this book and for such a low price you can not go wrong.
