Descripción del producto
Drawn into a world where every human has disappeared, Steve is initially terrified. Within minutes the world returns to normality. His family and friends are back and don’t understand why he is so upset. A few years later everyone disappears again, only this time it appears that they have been gone much longer. His house smells damp and mould patches have appeared on the curtains and peeling wallpaper. Weeds, shrubs and small trees grow through every crack in the road and pavements, and feral dogs hunt in packs, yet hours later normality returns.
This happens many times as Steve grows up, sometimes the solitude and disarray lasting for hours or even days. Over time he learns to accept these intermittent adventures and soon meets other people like himself, but what or who is behind these disappearances? Why does everyone keep disappearing, and each time they vanish why does it appear that more time has elapsed? Why does everyone suddenly reappear as if they had never been away and why has Steve been chosen to experience an Empty Planet?
If you woke up and found every human being gone, your home, street and whole cities lying derelict, flooded, and overrun with weeds, grasses, bushes, creeping ivy, trees, and wild animals, what would you do?
This is just the beginning of Steve’s life-long adventure, which in time affects his family, his relationships, and everyone on the planet.
