The End of Time: The most captivating book you ll read this summer

Gavin Extence

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

An unforgettable new novel from literary sensation Gavin Extence that brings to life the human condition, with insight, tenderness and humour.

Beneath the stars, on a stony beach, stand two teenage brothers.

They are wearing lifejackets that are too big for them and their most precious belongings are sealed in waterproof bags tucked inside the rucksacks on their backs.

Turkey is behind them and Europe lies ahead, a dark, desperate swim away.

They don't know what will come next, but they're about to meet a man who does. He calls himself Jesus, the Messiah. He is barefoot, dishevelled and smells strongly of alcohol.

And he doesn't believe in chance meetings. He believes he has information about the future - information that will change three lives forever . . .
