The End of the World Running Club by Adrian J Walker ★★★★☆

Published: 2014

Format: Audiobook

Pages: 466

Genre: Post Apocalyptic

When the world ends and you find yourself stranded on the wrong side of the country, every second counts.

No one knows this more than Edgar Hill. 550 miles away from his family, he must push himself to the very limit to get back to them, or risk losing them forever…

– Official Synopsis

This was one of those books which I’d heard the title around a lot but nothing more about it. But that title was intriguing enough for me to pick it up when it was the Daily Deal on Audible.

It was great to go into a novel with so little knowledge of the plot, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This, at it’s heart, is a story of survival and what it means to be human. We get glimpses of what being left with nothing can do to a person. In that way it reminded me to The Walking Dead – although there’s no Zombies to be seen!

We see a cast of characters from a variety of backgrounds from the soldier to the almost drunk. The story focuses on Edgar, who is definitely not a good person but is a great character. It gives an edge to the story which is sometimes lacking when the protagonist is an honorable and kind person.

Overall this was a great read, and I’ll definitely be picking up more by Adrian J Walker (The Last Dog on Earth has grabbed my attention on the name alone).
