Publisher's Summary

Chris's life of luxury is gone, devastated by the collapse of the European economy. Huddled in a small room with his petrified ten-year-old son, Chris made the decision to stay in his lavish and once cherished home. Gas, water, and electricity are all cut off; his wife and daughter have gone, and food is running out.
Driven by the need to survive, Chris has decided to keep secrets from his son. Secrets that will make everything else up until this point seem trivial. Secrets that—one way or another will come out before the day is done.
Cowering in his home, he watches as his neighbors are dragged into the street and brutally executed by a small army of psychotic scavengers hell-bent on making the formerly privileged pay. As they methodically purge each home, Chris realizes that staying was the worst decision of his life. Secrets or not, he has to act fast; the murderous pack only has one more house before they reach his…
Crash - A post-apocalyptic/dystopian thriller.
WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS SCENES OF BRUTAL VIOLENCE. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

Proceed with caution

I am far from prudish when it comes to post-apocalypse fiction. Having suffered some of the same slings and arrows as Mr. Robertson, I was not prepared to give this book one star. I will say that you should heed the negative reviews that hammer on the graphic violence. I am no believer in human nature, and I can see humanity taking a nasty turn in the event of any apocalyptic scenario, but this did seem to push the limits. Running over a little boy's head after defiling him is a bit over the top, but I am not saying there might not be a twisted psycho out there to do such things, only, I don;t see that person gathering a squad of like-minded monsters. Also, there is one person obviously not on board with what is happening, yet he still turns on Chris when it is clear he was made to seem like he was not part of Dean's sociopathic assault on the gated community. That was hinted at after the scene with the dog as well as when he made eye contact with Chris at an earlier point.

Tread with caution.

I was provided a copy (audio) of this title in exchange for an honest review. My biggest issue with the narrator is that he almost seemed to be whispering. At times I had to struggle to hear him but overall, the production quality was excellent.

A BISCUIT SHORT OF A FULL TIN

IS THIS LORD OF THE FKING FLY?
Sorry, Virginia, but their are people like this in our world and the minute something happens, to allow it, they will come out of the woodwork and they will have followers. You look at our current election in the good old US of A and the hatred on both sides, we are getting dangerously close.

THIS WASN'T A WORLD FOR FAT WHITE MEN IN SUITS
There are some gory scenes and some involve children. The majority of the book is not the violence though. Most of it centers around the main character's bad marriage. The bad marriage which is all his fault. I felt no empathy for the guy.

WHAT'S GREECE GOT TO DO WITH IT.
I hate to disagree with the beautiful reviewer with the long flowing hair, but this is not for Konrath or Crouch fans. When you listen to those two, the story is all about entertainment and it is either twilight zone like or so outrageous, that you know it is not real. This was not that entertaining, was too real and spent too much time on the bad marriage. Having said that, I put the next two books in the series in my wish list. I want to know what happens to the kid and it looks like it will be book three, before I can find out.

I did not receive this book for free, I bought it during the % off sale. The brutally honest do not get freebies.
