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?

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.
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.
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.
Light the fuse on this one and prepare for the 'Big-Bang!'. Absolutely unstoppable and unputdownable. If there's one book to digest this year, this is it. Well, what are you waiting for?
the first half was great but the story didn't seem to go anywhere I didn't expect.
there were some extremely interesting insights ( the main characters thoughts as he run) which redeemed the book for me.
I really like the performance of the book and have listened to other books read by jot davis.
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!
