Run: A Thriller

Five days ago a rash of bizarre murders swept the country. Senseless. Brutal. Seemingly unconnected. A cop walked into a nursing home and unloaded his weapons on elderly and staff alike.

Publisher's Summary

Five days ago a rash of bizarre murders swept the country. Senseless. Brutal. Seemingly unconnected....

A cop walked into a nursing home and unloaded his weapons on elderly and staff alike. A mass of school shootings. Prison riots of unprecedented brutality. Mind-boggling acts of violence in every state.

Four Days Ago the murders increased ten-fold....

Three days ago the President addressed the nation and begged for calm and peace....

Two days ago the killers began to mobilize....

Yesterday all the power went out....

Tonight they’re reading the names of those to be killed on the Emergency Broadcast System. You are listening over the battery-powered radio on your kitchen table, and they’ve just read yours. Your name is Jack Colclough. You have a wife, a daughter, and a young son. You live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. People are coming to your house to kill you and your family. You don’t know why, but you don’t have time to think about that any more. You only have time to run!

    Story
    "Good read"
    What made the experience of listening to Run the most enjoyable?

    Because of the willingness of a man betrayed doing everything he could to keep his family together and safe.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the fact that those who no longer needed faith were the ones that were killers was just an amazing and interesting concept.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator is what kept me from giving this book a perfect review. His voice could not mimick a females even if his life depended on it. Next time use Rob Shapiro.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The faithful become the predators,while the faithless become the prey.

    From the moment this book starts, it grabs you. Intense, suspenseful and thrilling; this is full of action and authentic emotion. Highly recommend.

    "Not his best"

    Run didn't live up to its title. the story link seemed to drag on forever. Definitely not one of the best from Blake Crouch.

    "It kept me from focussing too much on my boring job"

    Lots and lots of survival related action. I was disappointed by the ending, but that wasn't the main point. I was hoping for a different outcome for the mother. Definitely not this very good author's best. (Review by Rick)

    "Bad TV writing"

    Poorly written rip-off version of a twilight zonesque plot. Butchers so many concepts - hackneyed bad Hollywood writing at its worst. I can't believe I made it through this thing.

    "Outstanding performance..."

    My hat goes off! Good from start to finish. Extremely detailed (graphic) so not for the faint of hearts. The narration is amazing and characters were individualized so that you never had to guess who was whom. Try it out...you won't be sorry!

    "Better as the story gets toward the middle."

    Slow, corny start but does get more interesting toward the middle and I like the ending.
