Product Description

About the Author

Jason Gurley is the author of Greatfall, The Man Who Ended the World, The Settlers, The Colonists and Eleanor. Born in the squelchy bogs of Texas, then raised in the icy caves of Alaska, he relied on his imagination to keep him warm and dry. As a result, he firmly believes that Superman isn't Superman if he's not wearing red undies, and that Darryl Strawberry had the sweetest swing of all time. He may be the only man alive who believes both, and that's okay. Jason lives in Oregon with his family, and is a creative director in Portland. He can be found online at jasongurley.com, facebook.com/authorjasongurley and twitter.com/jgurley, and probably a few dozen other places, if you look hard enough.

Interesting story. I liked the idea of this book, and would give the story 4 stars. I however hated the lack of speech marks. I found it made the book difficult to read, there were times when i had no idea if someone was speaking or thinking something are other times when it wasn't clear if the same person was speaking, or someone new. This is why i have given the book 3.5 stars. I did however enjoy the story enough to finish it.

Whilst I enjoyed this book as it got going the biggest problem that I had was having actually really gotten going, and moving well - it just suddenly goes "bang" jumps forward and then ends (as a result it's shorter than you imagine even with the detail on Kindle!) Without flogging a dead horse this could've gone much further and been great, but it's ending let it down in my opinion.

The story is rather a good one, but the writing style slightly lets it down I'm afraid. The lack of punctuation makes it difficult at times to distinguish what is narrative and what is spoken. The style can sometimes also be condescending. The story is rather short, and it takes a rather long time to get started before ending quite abruptly. The children also act above their age, while the adult (main character) acts like a spoiled teenager. I still enjoyed the book thanks to the story line and the details about the "space station" and its us but it could have been better.

It didn't take me long to finish this book - the length of a train journey to London - but that's not because it was a short tale, or a skip-along read. I got very caught up in the author's (not-so-distant) futuristic world and in the moral and ethical thought processes and dilemmas that it threw up. On the surface, it's a simply written narrative, with four 'heroes', operating in a restricted and restrictive environment, which keeps the story 'compact'. The language is easy to read and I wasn't sure at first if the book was aimed at an adult readership or not; the main protagonist is an adult, but there are also two young children and an Artificial Intelligence. On reflection, events and some sexual allusions later in the story probably place it in the 'young adult' camp, but adults will enjoy it, too. I'd put it on a par with 'The Hunger Games' trilogy in tone and dystopian setting - and plenty of adults have read those with pleasure! The characters are well drawn, with credible narrative voices and all in all, it's a good read. I think the author might be planning sequels, but I enjoyed it purely as a one-off, and I liked the way in which the story ended on a positive but open-ended and uncertain note. 'The Man Who Ended the World' can certainly stand alone and be read as a single volume. I like to imagine for myself what might happen to the characters after they leave the scrap yard, and I don't necessarily want the author to tell me in future books!

I really enjoyed the story of Henry and Clarissa. This is a well written book, with a good pace. I enjoy end of the world novels and this one is a little different. I would recommend this book. Buy it!

Speech marks, anyone? Not a bad story, and reasonably well written, but the distinct lack of speech marks can make it a difficult and sometimes confusing read.
