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!

    "amazing rush"

    Adrenaline rush from beginning to end. Loved this book. Hits the ground running and never looks back. I played this book for my wife and she almost had a heart attack by the end. Lol.

    "Recommend this book. Enjoyed it."

    Interesting story a lot of twists and turns. About a family trying to survive and not be killed. Violence, death, love story, and at times had me on the edge of my seat. I like to listen to books especially when not feeling well or at night falling asleep. I stayed awake listening so it is a good book in my opinion as so many lull me to sleep. Read in a day and I enjoyed. The audio is good I enjoyed the man who did the narration and I am starting to really like this authors well written books.

    Story
    "Good plot and a decent listen for a young adult"
    What would have made Run better?

    If things like the fact that it took weeks for the outbreaks to overwhelm society, but the main characters don't pack until people are on their way to kill them... or the fact that the afflicted can tell who is or isn't afflicted and are more organized than normal people... that the children act like 5 year olds but are supposed to be much older... the dialog is all cliché... then this book will be a great listen, For those who cannot overlook the simplistic nature of the characters and illogicalness of it all you should maybe look elsewhere like "Dust and Decay".


    How could the performance have been better?

    He seemed to get confused as to which character he was reading for at times. Not terribly expressive, but otherwise ok.

    "Poor ending"

    The story was interesting but I didn't really care for the reader. Also, the ending seemed a little rushed and short, considering how the rest of the book seemed to drag out a little too much.

    "Don't waste your time"

    I struggled to finish this. it's an awesome concept but poorly executed. I'm not sure why it has gotten such great reviews. The author was not great at setting up scenes and the ones that were supposed to be exciting were very dry. I'm highly disappointed since his Dark Matter is one of my favorite books.

    "Gruesome, but interesting story"

    I bought this to pass the time on a long drive to LA. The story consisted of one long chase scene with minor breaks along the way. The performance was fine although the narrator's Belfast accent was awful (I should know, I grew up there). His Australian accent was good though.

    The story was intriguing with the protagonists always in danger and not knowing where the next attacker will come from. My biggest gripe about it is the gratuitous descriptions of extreme, cringing, violence that lasted a long time. There were moments of peace interspersed here and there but most of the time was spent avoiding or perpetrating gory, violent acts.

    "Adult Only"

    When they say at the beginning of this book that it's for mature adults only there not kidding. This is very violent book of murder and death. It is a fantastic read but be warned that it is a gruesome book.
