In this novel, the world doesn't end with a big bang or drama, it ends slowly with a whimper.  Children start being born with no awareness of the world.  they simply exist and need others to take care of them.  These "Blocks" as they are known, area totally dependent.  So the world ends as the population dies off.

This story is told by journal entries of an old man who is caring for his Block brother in an empty subdivision called Camelot.  Where wild animals from the forest are the only other things living there.  His entries reflect on his life, the Blocks, how society addressed the situation and the importance of family.

Very compelling and sad and so very honest.  Loved it.
