The End of Time

The End of Time

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 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. Two or three kilometres’ swim away is the Greek island of Samos, now only a smudge in the moonlight.

Their feet are blistered from walking, their energy is failing.

They wade forward into the Aegean Sea and count one, two, three.

This is the story of what happens next.

This is the story of Mohammed and Zain.

Brothers. Sons. Refugees.

Reviews

I loved #TheEndofTime. It is, without doubt, one of my top reads of 2019. I walked every mile with Zain, Mohammed and Jesus. Even when their epic journey seemed hopeless, their story remained hopeful. I've not had such an immersive and important read in a long time.

Thoroughly enjoyed #TheEndOfTime. It's an epic story of brotherly love, courage and resilience. A sensitively-written, compassionate and heart-warming must-read for this summer.
