This book is so similar in its basic idea to Hater by David Moody that I have a hard time believing it was not inspired by it. In both a portion of the population is overtaken by irrational, uncontrollable hatred toward the rest of the population and the need to destroy them. In both those full of hate can instantly tell on sight who the enemy is but the normal people cannot. A big difference though is that in Hater, we do not find out what caused it, and Hater is far more an examination of the crazy, irrational, zombie-like nature of divisive, pointless hatred. This is more of a survival story and we do find out what caused the division. So in terms of plot there is not a huge similarity ( aside from one scene that is nearly identical), but the premise is very similar.
This is not a criticism. It follows some similarities as a zombie survival story, but with the interesting twist that the people who are in the role of a zombie are not dead and retain their intellect. It is action packed and I felt for the characters and thought it was fairly well paced. The narrator does a great job too.

BEETS, THE HAVE NOT EATEN IN A WEEK, STARVING TO DEATH FOOD.
An action packed thrill ride, a mystery, and very entertaining. It is kind of a Zombie book without the Zombies. After seeing some lights in the sky (Day of the Triffids) most of the population become murdering monsters. They don't become dumb easy to out run, falling apart zombies, they still have their brains, they just want to kill anyone who has not seen the light.
JUST DO WHAT I BLANKING TELL YOU
It is also about a family that was dysfunctional, that comes together in tragedy. Those reviewers who concentrated on the gore, seemed to ignored this large part of the book. Is there a lot of gore, well yea!!, it is a horror book, not a romance. I did get tired of the kids always asking why, in the middle of a crisis, but that is how we raise them these days. Finally toward the end of the story the dad, tells them " Just do what I F tell you." When I was a kid my dad said to do it because he said so and he was the boss. We learned early in life not to question dad. This is a good entertaining book and well written.

Would you try another book written by Blake Crouch or narrated by Phil Gigante?
I have and they have been better.
What could Blake Crouch have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
This was well written but nothing new.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The female voices were a bit annoying.
Was Run worth the listening time?
I never got to finish it so in my case no.
Any additional comments?
A familiar storyline with nothing to make it stand out.
