    1 thought on “Grand Solo for Anton

    1. Der Verwaltungsangestellte Anton L. wacht eines morgens auf und stellt fest, daß alle seine Mitmenschen spurlos verschwunden sind. In den folgenden sehr unterhaltsamen 337 Seiten macht er sich auf, die Ursache der Katastrophe, seine Umwelt und sich selbst zu erkunden. Von der einen oder anderen unappetitlichen Stelle mal abgesehen, habe ich lange kein Buch mehr in der Hand gehabt, daß sich so gut an einem Stück lesen läßt.

    2. Anton L. awakes to find that the rest of humanity has disappeared and he is the only one left (though it takes him some time to realize and accept this turn of events). This is not the first time this premise has been explored, as there is an entire collection of short stories edited by Asimov called The Last Man on Earth, furthermore I Am Legend comes to mind, many castaway stories essentially fit the bill, the excellent nonfiction book The Earth Without Us takes a scientific perspective on the [...]

    3. What does the last man on Earth do? Not very much it would seem but it is fun in doing so.I would like to have awarded a star for each of the four constituent parts of this 'Robinson Crusoe' type mystery: numerous detailed day to day survival techniques; a 'where did everybody go?' plot; some anecdotal stories from the main character's past and a few theological discussions with a bronze statue of the Elector and Jacob the hare (or rather with Anton L. himself). Alas, the balancing of these four [...]

    4. The premise sounded interesting (last man on earth), and I had no trouble accepting the lack of explanation for the circumstances (to be fair - I didn't finish the book, maybe it is explained later on. It is a quirky, unusual book. But I did not enjoy the story. I did not like the main character.

    5. Well, I thought the book was interesting. The idea is fairly simple, Anton, the main character, is the last human in his town, presumably, the world, and I'm pretty sure it was stolen from a Twilight Zone episode… Eventually, the story turns to religion and talking rabbits, sooo…

    6. I like it when a translator can keep the feel of the original language. I read this in English, but it felt very German.

    7. Started so well: Anton is the last person on Earth, all other humans have mysteriously disappeard over night. This part of the story was so much fun to read, but the ending was disappointingly weak!
