Publisher's Summary

Do the impossible, or lose your family forever....

Edgar Hill, unsympathetic husband and halfhearted father, finds himself in a hopeless situation. Despite all his best efforts, he hasn't managed to keep his family together. In fact they are further from him than ever - 550 miles, to be precise.

And in a world near annihilated by a terrible disaster, leaving the UK harsh and brutal, uncrossable by car or bike, his journey to find his loved ones will be fraught with challenges.

His best option is to run. But what if your best isn't good enough?

Includes original music by Adrian J. Walker.

    "Best book I've listened to all year"

    I listen to dozens of books each year from Audible as I walk the dog. Without question, this is the best I've listened to in many many months. Fantastic narration and a story that is gripping. My dog has had much longer walks these past few days as I've listened on that little bit longer! Can't recommend highly enough.

    "Brilliantly performed"

    I really enjoyed this, read brilliantly with great accents that really captured the essence of the characters. Good story, bit drawn out in a couple of parts but soon picked up again. Engrossing listen. Excellent.

    "British Walking Dead without Zombies"

    Not bad, I would call it a middle class British version of the Walking Dead, but without zombies. Jot Davies did a great Jon with the narration, loads of different voices!

    "A gripping yarn"

    I don't often read modern fiction. There are some telltale stylistic issues but they did not detract from the overall pleasure I derived from the story which was made even more gripping by the brilliance of its talented narrator. I recommend it highly.

    "Great characters, performance is excellent! "

    I wasn't sure what to expect but it certainly didn't disappoint. The characters are engaging and the plot is fresh, original and wholly believable. The author definitely caught the sense of the average office worker facing the apocalypse without any cheesy over the top heroics.

    "Great British PA fiction"

    At first , i thought i could not continue with this narrator despite being a compelling plot. i have though spent 59 hours and the last 3 audio books in the presence of Scott Brick and there don't come many better.

    I'm glad i persisted, the local accents being startlingly good , well the Manchester accent sounded like Liam Gallagher mimicking the Scouse accent!

    The story , well read the reviews and believe the hype, it is really good and set in the UK. Not over gratuitous with the violence or bad language, so suitable for young adults.

    And no Zombies thank god !

    Story
    "A very different take on the theme and it works"
    Where does The End of the World Running Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to hundreds so somewhere around 3/4 of the way up my good list.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The End of the World Running Club?

    The meeting with the old school master and schoolboy is what seems to have stuck in my head most 3 weeks later though I don't know why!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really but I felt empathy with the lead characters, especially at the end


    Any additional comments?

    I never know what to expect with these 'global disaster - survivor' stories. They can get a bit samey over time. This was totally unique though. I really enjoyed it as I didn't know where it was going next

    "fantastic absolutely fantastic"

    Brilliant believable characters, solid story. I honestly wasn't expecting much when I downloaded this. How wrong was I. I'm already missing Brice and Edgar.
