About a book I remember well Im Norwegian and I remember my father read a book to me called "Lasse alene i verden". That would be in english "Lasse alone in the world". It's about a boy who wakes up one day and finds out that he is the only one left in the world. At first he has some fun doing everything he wants to do, because there is noone to stop him. But after a while he finds out that it is quite boring as he has noone to share his experiences with, and noone to interact with.
