Last Night of the World by Ray Bradbury
Just read "Last Night of the World" by Ray Bradbury. Wow! What a master storyteller. The story is done almost totally in dialogue and still you can picture their house, their lives, his job, and just how perfectly normal they are. Everything on the surface is peaceful and yet I was left with a chill running down my spine as they tucked themselves into bed at the end of the story.
