The Last Man is an early post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by Mary Shelley, which was first published in 1826. The book tells of a future world that has been ravaged by a plague. The plague gradually kills off all people. Lionel Verney, central character, son of a nobleman who gambled himself into poverty, finds himself immune after being attacked by an infected "negro," and copes with a civilization that is gradually dying out around him.

Reviews

I think a book with

(4 stars)

A male protagonist/narrator should have a male reader, especially if he is THE LAST MAN. Not that this reader isn't good, she is, but it makes my fake news, racist, gender bias, conservative, Trump brain feel better. I dunno.

reading or questioning

(1.5 stars)

While the reader has a pleasant tone, her inflection makes each sentence sound as though she’s asking a question.

Ehh...

(2 stars)

This book was way to wordy for me with only a little plague action, didn't finish it, I kept falling asleep...

couldn't pass the first chapter

(0 stars)

I guess she has a room for improvement.
