A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World, by C.A. Fletcher. Enthralling dystopia set in a future England with very few humans left. More for the young adult audience. The ending a little too pat for my taste, but that is the generic problem of dystopias, unless you are going to stay true to Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and its unremitting grimness.
