The Last Question

Back in early 2013, The Last Question inevitably resurfaced back to the top of Hacker News and I got to read it for the first time. I was so impressed by the short story that I went out and built this in roughly two to three days. It's a weird book/app hybrid which I feel does a better job of presenting the book than a plain HTML page.

Not thoroughly tested on multiple devices, browsers or screen sizes, so YMMV. Try Chrome. And enjoy the read; it's up at http://vararu.org/the-last-question/ .

All rights to the book are reserved by the Asimov Foundation.
