Walker Keep his family together In fact they are further from him than ever 550 miles to be preciseAnd in a world near annihilated by a terrible disaster leaving the UK harsh and brutal uncrossabl Ed was asleep when it started still feeling the effects of a drink it two too many and by the time he worked out what was going on it was already almost too late Grabbing the only shelter he could think of he secreted his family he wife and their two children away into their cellar while asteroids worked their horrors I must admit that I was drawn to this book by its title apocalyptic events and running had ticked a couple of boxes before I got to page one I also liked the fact that it was set in the UK I ve read uite a few books in this genre but none set on these shores Alas from the start this one provided a somewhat rocky ride apologies for the pun The early events were well written but didn t convince Would it really happen like this I didn t think so Then the account of the initial aftermath for Ed and his crew hit a few false notes for me too the behaviours just didn t feel uite rightI don t wish to give too much away so I ll be a bit sketchy from here At some point after the asteroid strikes Ed finds himself part of a small dysfunctional group which included A huge man who moaned and shouted a good deal and clearly disliked Ed A small military woman who the huge bloke also disliked though not half as much as she disliked him An Aussie who claimed to have once run the breadth of Australia Needless to say the big guy didn t believe a word of it A posh boy ex banker I don t need to tell you what the moaner thought about himEvents from this point seem to lurch from one set piece to another with dull interludes breaking up the action At times I thought it read like a cheap television series full of scenes that didn t uite fit together and full of characters I struggled to feel any empathy for There were very few nice or helpful people here instead the world now seemed to be populated by buffoon caricatures weird cult groups and vicious gangs Where did all the normal people goThen I had a couple specific grumbles1 There is some running here but the detail wasn t uite right Some long distances were covered but there was little to no reference to the struggles and strains of such an endeavour over and above some general complaints regarding tiredness What about the blisters and muscle strains What about looking for some helpful footwear to make life a bit easier I know this is delving into the micro detail but any book purporting to cover long distance running should at least attempt to nod it s head to some basic associated issues2 Moany Man s constant shouting got right on my wick It might have been bearable if it were on a printed page but on audio I was forever being assaulted by the narrators voice hollering in my ear Be forewarned if you decide to go this route On the upside towards the end I did start to care a little about a couple of the survivors But really only a smidgen In summary I found this to be over long and poorly conceived If you re a fan of this type of tale then take it from me there s much better stuff out there About two and a half stars but rounded down due to the hollering
