Waterstones Says

An insight into the minds of survivalists the world over, O’ Connell’s grimly addictive volume traces a journey through the physical and mental terrain of those planning for the end of the world.   

From the prize-winning author of To Be a Machine - meet the men and women preparing for the end of the world

In the remote mountains of Scotland, in high-tech bunkers in South Dakota and in the lush valleys of New Zealand, small groups of determined men and women are getting ready. They are environmentalists who fear the ravages of climate change; billionaire entrepreneurs dreaming of life on Mars; and right-wing conspiracists yearning for a lost American idyll.

One thing unites them: their certainty that we are only years away from the end of civilization as we know it. Not unconcerned himself by the possibility of the end of days, Mark O'Connell set out to meet them.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘He’s doing good work in difficult times. He offers us hope as well as black humour.’ - The Daily Telegraph

‘In the end, O’Connell does cheer up, reminding himself that the miracle of life itself is an “outrageous repudiation of the odds”… But if coronavirus does prove to be the apocalypse, buy this book first. At least you’ll die laughing.’ -The Sunday Telegraph

‘It can’t be overstated what witty, thoughtful company O’Connell is when exploring these peculiarly 21st-century dilemmas.’ - The Mail
