The End Of The Dream

Written By:Philip Wylie - 1972

  • The End Of The Dream  - Philip Wylie cover


The book is structured as a look back from the 2030s to when humanity still had a chance to change things for the better but didn't. By 2030 there are only four million survivors, most living in enclosed 'bubble' townships & still on guard for whatever the next ecological catastrophe will be. It leads to an episodic approach. Because Wylie doesn't present any strong, well defined & enduring characters, it doesn't work as a novel.
