Best Survival Novel Ever!,
This review is from: Run (Paperback)
Crouch does an awesome job building the suspense as Jack Colclough, his wife, Dee, their daughter Naomi and son Cole RUN for their lives when a large portion of the population view a metor shower which turns them into homicidal maniacs. Don't let the premise fool you, this is a great book. Crouch's writing style and storytelling is right up there with a prose blend that could be associated with the likes of Cormac McCarthy, Stephen King, William Gay, and Dean Koontz.
Jack and his family are put to the test as they are hunted by roving convoys of military-type murderers, face dehydration and starvation, must endure extreme weather conditions, never knowing what lurks around the next bend, if that day will be their last. It's both gutsy and gut wrenching. Believable action and cliffhangers.
This is the first book I've seen where the author drops the page down for each chapter but does not have chapter numbers, perhaps as less of a distraction. Worked for me. Another book that I've read of Crouch's is DESERT PLACES: A Novel of Terror (Andrew Z. Thomas Thriller) which I highly recommend.
