The Last Wild

Written by Piers Torday

The Last Wild Synopsis

In a world where animals no longer exist, twelve-year-old Kester Jaynes sometimes feels like he hardly exists either. Locked away in a home for troubled children, he's told there's something wrong with him. So when he meets a flock of talking pigeons and a bossy cockroach, Kester thinks he's finally gone a bit mad. But the animals have something to say...This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.

The Last Wild Press Reviews

'Splendid stuff' Eva Ibbotson. 'A darkly comic and hugely inventive adventure ... it could be the next big thing' Eoin Colfer. 'A charming tale, based on an original and intriguing premise and with more than a whiff of magic about it' The Bookbag. 'The sequel had better come soon' Observer. 'Thrilling ... Written in a vivid, urgent style, its sense of loss at all the creatures we have lost or are losing may be as critical to the new generation as Tarka the Otter' Times. 'I haven't read a book this good and interesting since The Hunger Games ... an edge-of-your-seat fast-paced read' Guardian Children's website. 'Inventive, with laughs, tears and cliffhangers' Sunday Times. 'An action-packed, dystopian eco-thriller with memorable characters, both animal and human, and a powerful message about the interdependence of man and nature. A promising debut' Daily Mail.
