I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.
YES!!!! This story will have you driving the speed limit and past your house two or three times before you hit the button on your garage door opener.
The grip this story had on me was stronger than Day by Day Armageddon which involved no sleep and an earphone in one ear as I acted like I listened to every word my wife said, but I only had that masterpiece on 1.25 speed. Run, my fellow zombie - apacolyptic - end of times story seekers, took me on a vividly written and narrated journey that really did have me leaving work early and driving the long way home at speeds well below the limit as I listened at 2.0 speed in order to get as much in as possible before went into earphone mode (Mr. narrator Sir, you were still OUTSTANDING at 2.0).
The scene that started when I hit the play button and ended when the nice man from Audible thank me for my purchase.
I'm way too tough to cry.... wait... did my wife send pictures?
For those who enjoy a vivid apocalyptic, zombie SURVIVAL (you know what I am talking about), armageddon based journey you will not be disappointed. In fact I offer a money back guaratee you will soon re-prioritize your "That was a fricken great book" list as soon as you realize this bit of pure listening enjoyment is over. To the person who masterfully selected and organized the sequence of human language used to constantly describe ever evolving happiness, sadness, hopefulness, disparity, anger, and compassion in this gift of entertainment, thank you and very nicely done! Finally, this story wraps up in a way that concludes this families ordeal and was not designed to answer questions in a sequal; thank you again master word putter together-er!
Say something about yourself!
I would probably not recommend this book to a friend. It was a fairly good book, and highly suspenseful. It carried suspense on every page, and the horrors of war. Although not set in a war, the occurrences within the novel were both horrific and realistic. In addition, much like war, it was a heart breaking novel. If you are a parent, and can read this novel without tearing up at any point, have your pulse checked.
The best thing about the novel was the end. I almost gave up on the book early on, but hang in there, it gets better and the end is worth ghorre.
Don't listen to this book where children can hear it.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Oh yes. Great story and kept you interested till the last word.
Oh yes. You never knew which way it would turn.
When they were running away from all those armed men in the mountains.
Yes when they were able to stay in that home and they became a family again.
Blake Crouch was new to me. I am glad he was introduced to me. He is a GREAT mystery and thriller author.
Maybe, I'll have to see about the narrator. The story was interesting but I really started hated the narrator's female voices.
It was a fast paced book.
This narrator had a really poor female voice. They came off as being super whiny.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
Could be a good listen but the narrator's female voice got on my nerves. The story is interesting enough to hold you attention as you wait to hear more of the story; I just couldn't go on though.
Yes. Good story, good voice acting which made a great tense book. The pacing was good and kept me on the edge of my earbuds. It left you just long enough to gasp for air before you dived back in.
The Cell by Stephen King and The Day of the triffids by John Wyndham. Similar premise as the cell with half the world turning against itself. It reminds me of day of the triffids because of the meteor shower.
I liked how he performed the bit players in this book it really made me feel like each one was different.
This is one of those edge of your seat, stay up all night, intense books, one of the best listens I have experienced in a long long time!
What would happen if one day half of the population decided to become homicidal maniacs? Where would you go? How would you survive? This is the question Blake Crouch asks in Run. The action starts only a few pages in and doesn't stop until the very end.
I will say the mother and son characters both became increasingly annoying as the story went on, all they did was whine and cause Jack more stress...I was secretly starting to hope they might get killed off...I won't spoil your fun of finding out if they do or not!
Blake Crouch almost lost me with Abandon, but he won me back here.
I appreciate the fact that the author kept the family intact, the father was separated but came back into there lives again at just the right time to give us hope & a good ending. I lose interest in a story when I connect with a character and then they die or are left out of the story in some aspect.
The intensity of the action , the sincerity of the emotions conveyed really gave,' RUN' the realism needed to captivated the reader.
. It plays on my fear/fantasy of end of word scenario & made the book memorable. If perfection Is in the details then the author hit the mark!
