"It is the eleventh of October, at four twenty-three in the morning.

The weather in London is overcast with a temperature of nine degrees Celsius (forty-eight point two degrees Fahrenheit if you're into that sort of thing).

There has been mild precipitation; this is England after all.

Oh, and the world is ending.

The world is ending, and it is due to the choices of a young man named Oscar Tundale.

He is entirely average in many ways and less than average in more.

This is the story of why the world is ending.

And how Oscar let it happen."
