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!

What did you love best about Run?

I enjoyed the adventure, the terror, the on the edge of my seat, holding my breathe, sensation I got from listening to this book. This book is so well written and the characters are easy to identify with. The journey this family has to embark on and the horror and terror they encounter is one thing but the way they respond and react to their environment and situation makes it easy to get wrapped up in the moment.

What did you like best about this story?

The relationship development in the book and of course the raw fear from the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end was a bit sad and disturbing! The family found in the minivan along with the father walking down the road was also a bit disturbing.........hell this whole book is disturbing.

Any additional comments?

Worth the credit.

Violent, Depressing, Mostly Sci Fi

After reading "Pines" and being very impressed with this author, I thought I would give him another try. Big disappointment in this one.

While the premise is one we have all heard before in one form or another, and the main characters are likable enough, it just seemed to be one big bloody slaughter scene for most of the book. After witnessing strange lights in the sky, half the country goes crazy and just starts killing everyone who didn't see the lights. No real explanation for this--just an excuse to have some good old fashioned chainsaw/torture scenes. The main family that is trying to get away from these killers go through some amazing escape antics and some of their experiences were somewhat realistic. There were some pretty tense moments when they were almost caught, and I was feeling afraid for the family most of the time.

However, one of the most annoying parts of the first half was the wife who never quit blaming her husband (for some reason) for not making everything ok. "What are YOU going to do about getting us out of this? What are YOU planning to make sure they don't catch us?" You get the picture--it went on and on until you just want to pull your hair out or hope he grows a spine and sets her straight. He didn't cause this mess, and he is doing the best he can--why doesn't SHE come up with some answers? Other reviewers have mentioned this also--so if this kind of behavior gets on your nerves--- - - - -

On the up side- the narrator did a very good job.

I know there are some really positive reviews on this book, and I usually don't like to be so negative, but this story left me itching to put out the review I felt it deserved.
