Summary

The Last Man is Mary Shelley's apocalyptic fantasy of the end of human civilisation. Set in the late 21st century, the novel unfolds a sombre and pessimistic vision of mankind confronting inevitable destruction.
Interwoven with her futuristic theme, Mary Shelley incorporates idealised portraits of Shelley and Byron, yet rejects Romanticism and its faith in art and nature.

A great book, with a great story.

Both the story and narrator were interesting and engaging. I really cannot say to much good about this book.
I know some people would see this as a long story, but I never was bored or hoping it would hurry up and get somewhere.

My best advice would be just try it for yourself.

I am definitely going to look for more books by Mary Shelly (Frankenstein is her only other book that I have read), and more books narrated by Matt Bates. He really brought the book alive and made it feel like I was listening to a real person tell their story.

Typical Mary Shelley

Simpering and saccharine descriptions clothe this odd tale. Only the last few chapters are about being the last man. Many of the themes in post apocalyptic literature are here. Glad it's over.
