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!

    "Fast Moving"

    This book was fast-paced and I really liked the dystopian aspect with the family interaction. I kept comparing it in my mind to Hater, but I liked Hater a little better because of the twist at the end. I would have liked it a little more if there was more explanation about the lights, as to why they occurred and why not everyone was similarly affected. I also think that the ending could have been done a bit better, as it felt abrupt.

    I listened to this on audio, which is a good choice. The narrator does a really good job, particularly with the main character's voice.

    "Narrator ruined it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Listeners with lower expectations


    What could Blake Crouch have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Hire a better narrator. R. C. Bray is the gold standard.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Phil Gigante?

    R. C. Gray


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Run?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly, I can't comment on the story other than the first scene was a very standard garden-variety setup for a plot that was already sounding familiar. I bailed as soon as I heard the narrator read the female protagonist's lines.

    "thiller"

    What a edge of your bed excitement. I could not put it down. The characters are so real, and find themselves in very precarious life and death situations. If you like a book with a tons of excitement this is a must read for you.

    ""Run". By Blake Crouch, & read by Phil Gigante Fantastic!"

    I usually listen to an audio book seven nights a week, due to too many
    Back surgeries after being a nurse for 20+yrs. Sleep is difficult for me
    I awake @ least 10 times a night, so I listen to many books to re-focus
    My mind to good stories instead of the constant pain! I have all of Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club, Harry Bosch, Karin Slaughter, Tom Clancy
    & too many other mystery/suspense books to list. This was the first Blake Crouch book,& it was so fast paced, excellent story, read by Phil
    Gigante who took you along on this families journey.A wonderful experience so dynamic I couldn't focus on anything but the read!

    "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.

    "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.
