Imagine yourself struggling for your life and for the life of the one you love. Imagine being pulled away from your home, taken to a facility where you are abused by the very same people that were meant to serve and protect you. Imagine that the world you know is coming to an end and that people, with their poor decision-making skills, have pushed it over the edge. You’re only a confused teen, having to deal with all of humanity’s mistakes and wrongful ambitions, how could you survive? This is Clay’s story, The Last Human, as written by Ink Pieper. A story about endings, wars, love, maturity, and suffering. A story too complex to summarize in just a few words, a story with so many plot twists that you, the reader, have no other alternative but to keep on reading, and imagining, and empathizing with the characters. As the story unfolds, it doesn’t even feel like you are reading a book; it all feels real and the images you draw in your head make you challenge everything you know about the world you live in.
The Last Human is not just an end-of-the-world story; it is a story about choices and crossroads, about what too much power can do to humanity. This book makes you wonder if we are on the right path, if we are not slowly destroying the world we live in by caring more about frivolities than we care about our loved ones and the place that we call home. Clay’s story is unpredictable, from beginning to end, and even though it has some rough parts that some readers might think are too much to handle, they are, in fact, what makes it all so real. These parts make you see this not as just a book, but more as a life lesson.
