Publisher's Summary

Edgar Hill is 35 and caught in his own headlock. Overweight slob, underperforming husband, and reluctant father - for Ed, the world may as well have already ended. So when it does end in a catastrophic asteroid strike and Edgar and his family find refuge in an Edinburgh army barracks, it comes as something of a relief.
But nothing's ever that simple. Returning from a salvage run in the city, Edgar finds his family gone, taken to the south coast for evacuation by an international task force. Suddenly he finds himself facing a grueling journey on foot across a devastated United Kingdom. Edgar must race against time and overcome his own shortcomings, not to mention hundred-mile canyons and a heavily flooded west coast, to find the people he loves before he loses them forever.
This is a vivid, gripping story of hope, long-distance running, and how we break the limits of our own endurance.

Best Book I've Listened to in a Long Time

The word that keeps coming to mind is "tight" when describing this book. There's nothing extra, there's nothing that makes you think "what? really?" there's only rare cliches. It's just great writing.
The story line is super creative. After reading the description and then meeting the main character, I couldn't wait to see what happened. The author does a great job of not having you like the main character necessarily, and maybe not even rooting for him, but I hung on every word and couldn't wait to see what happened.
The narrator was superb.
I highly recommend this book.
