Today Ellen has reviewed The Last Dog on Earth and we also have a q&a with Adrian J Walker for you too! First though, here’s the all-important bookish information!
About the book:
Every dog has its day…
And for Lineker, a happy go lucky mongrel from Peckham, the day the world ends is his: finally a chance to prove to his owner just how loyal he can be.
Reg, an agoraphobic writer with an obsession for nineties football, plans to wait out the impending doom in his second floor flat, hiding himself away from the riots outside.
But when an abandoned orphan shows up in the stairwell of their building, Reg and Lineker must brave the outside in order to save not only the child, but themselves…

About the author:

Ellen’s mini review:
I loved The End of the World Running Club by Adrian Walker and couldn’t wait to read his latest. I was not disappointed!! A fantastic story told from the viewpoint of Lineker (a very sweary, loveable mongrel) and his owner Reginald. Lineker was a joy to read; his commentary on life and the “two plates” was hilarious yet insightful. Reginald also amused me and broke my heart a little every time something else was revealed about his past.
Set in the not too distant future we see what can happen when political influence goes too far and how quickly the world could fall apart in the wrong hands.
I laughed and cried in equal measures reading this book and look forward to the next!
