The Dog at the End of the World

The Dog at the End of the World

by Skwrepb

Lucky Lachlan is just your average mutt. He's been living with his Girl for as long as he can remember and he'd do anything for her. He might have to do more than he bargained for.

One day when he awakened from his mid-day nap, he saw a box. It had no scent and floated calmly in the air.

Greetings Lucky Lachlan!

You have been chosen.

The End is coming in three days.  Prepare yourself!

Thanks to Kieran Pierce for the lovely cover!

Funny - and awesome. A good Idea!

Reviewed at: Day 3 - The End Begins

So, basically wanted to leave a quick review behind (and continue reading!).

The story is written REALLY well so far and I had many laughs :D Keep going and I am really interested how the "end" will go!

For everyone who isn't sure about reading the story: just give it a go! I normally only read the classical litRPG and fantasy novels, but this one here is pretty good! Trust me :)

This story is a very unique take on the "system intergration" genre with a very non typical cast which ends up being an absolutely adorable, yet intriguing combination.  ^_^

Thank you for writing and sharing this story, I sincerely look forward to more chapters.

yep, this is it, this is the story I’m willing to sell my soul for. I love every single thing about this story and aside from the occasional spelling error it’s really well written.

filler for the fifty word minimum. beep boop, potato scoop, nothing like a sneep snoop in the reboop with a basket troop to throw you for a loop and ah... soup

Refreshing approach to the end of the world

Reviewed at: Day 3 - To Grandmother's House We Go

As the title of my review says, Dog has a refreshing take on the apocalypse! You get to traverse into the end of the world along side great characters that are both relatable and adorable. Though this far we aren't sure what exactly is responsible for the end, it's great to get a break from those pesky undead that pop up in many stories like this. I, for one, can't wait to see what is really the cause of it all. Of course, I am somewhat biased, as I am the author's husband. That said, I always aim to be honest and objective, especially when is comes to skrwerpb's work. 

The writing style is easy to read and almost conversational. This makes for an easy to read story that you get lost in rather easily. I love the subtle humor as well, it's enough to make you laugh out loud at times, without feeling like the author is outright prompting you. The short chapters are also great as you can find nice stopping points when you don't have a lot of time to devote to the story at once.

The grammar is top notch (though the occasional typo does sneak in). Poor grammar really breaks the illusion in my opinion and this is definitely not the case with this story.

Finally, the characters are amazing. They encompass such a broad spectrum from all sorts of life. Each species really seems to have their own personality and personal ticks. There are a lot of supporting characters but none of them fall flat and I keep wondering and looking forward to who we'll meet next.

Overall, I think if you are looking for the lighter side of the end of the world this is the story for you!

While I have been reading for a very long time and read quite a few books a week I don't feel qualified to really comment on writing style, grammar, etc. I can say there isn't any grammar or spelling issues that take away from the story

 I really think most would find this a a good read I usually avoid the LITRPG stuff but this caught my eye and it didn't dissapoint. The story has a good flow and keeps your interest.
