End of the World Running Club
End of the World Running Club | Adrian Walker
#1 International Bestseller"A fresh and frighteningly real take on what "the end" might be...quite an exciting and nerve-wracking 'run', with characters you believe in and feel for."--New York Times bestselling author Robert McCammonPerfect for fans of The Martian, this powerful post-apocalyptic thriller pits reluctant father Edgar Hill in a race against time to get back to his wife and children. When the sky begins to fall and he finds himself alone, his best hope is to run - or risk losing what he loves forever. When the world ends and you find yourself forsaken, every second counts. No one knows this more than Edgar Hill. Stranded on the other side of the country from his wife and children, Ed must push himself across a devastated wasteland to get back to them. With the clock ticking and hundreds of miles between them, his best hope is to run -- or risk losing what he loves forever.

Remember when I said I didn‘t finish a single book in October?? I was wrong!! I totally finished ONE! 😜🤓 Thank you Goodreads for reminding me! Yaay!! Go me!!

Stephuhhnieee Yay! What did you think?? I bought this a month or so ago but haven‘t gotten to it, yet 😅 (edited) 1y
RavenLovelyReads @Stephuhhnieee I enjoyed it 😃 We can “talk” more after you read it . If you‘re a runner- you may need to suspend your disbelief just a little, but it was a good story. 1y
Stephuhhnieee @RavenLovelyReads Oh good! Might be a while before I get to it, but I‘ll circle back, lol. I am not a runner, but a good friend is and she seemed interested in it; I‘ll pass the word along lol. Thanks! 1y

Power was out last night, it was oddly relaxing to read in the dark and absolute quiet.

mdhughes72 The thing that gets me the most about power outages is the lack of air circulation. Too stuffy! 1y

I am absolutely loving this book. Very different from my usual choices but I am whizzing through it and never want it to end! Who knew the end of the world could feel so realistic! 9/10 🏅

When the world falls apart, and a man finds himself stranded 500 miles from his family and with the clock ticking on possibly losing them forever, he makes the decision to push himself to the limits to reach them in time.

Asteroids strike Earth and throw it into a post-apocolyptic nightmare. Edgar has been a crappy father and husband, but when his wife and children are evacuated without him, he starts an incredible journey to reunite with them. The reader can choose to read this book as depressing and disheartening or as an uplifting story of human endurance. I flew through the pages at a pace set by Edgar's urgency to find his family. Photo Is of the author.

This book just didn't do it for me. Unlikeable characters, a depressing storyline with issues, and an unfulfilled promise of a happy ending.

The ending of this actually made the book for me.
I liked the premis of the story but found it was almost complacent in its delivery. But maybe that's how it needed to be.

This is going down easy (though I could do without the main character getting shamed about his weight). My goal is to finish it before the end of the month so I can reach 10 books read in January.

Meh. Almost a thumbs down for me. While the concept was good, this book didn't click with me. The 1st third was rough; the middle third was better, and I skimmed the last third just to see what happened.

Interesting read - not sure that I loved it but I liked I more than I expected. Yes, it‘s kind of corny at times but I like to believe that optimism, kindness, and good people win in the end. I also appreciated the running bits of the story - especially how much of distance running takes place in your head. So true!

This book has been compared to The Martian, and inaccurately in my opinion. Where The Martian pits an extraordinarily competent individual against nigh- insurmountable odds, this book features an overweight manchild forced by extreme circumstances to become a decent human being. The humor found in The Martian is also completely absent here. That said, I appreciated the narrative being from an everyman's perspective, ⬇

2BR02B And the idea of the direst circumstances bringing out someone's very best self carried an optimism that's often missing in post-apocalyptic fare. And it almost made me want to go running, which is something. 2y

Sub par survival/apocalyptic story. Even worse running advise.

Characters are see though and mostly one dimensional. Writing style is quick and dumbed down. Slang doesn't even fit the geographical location.

A few parts stand out as potential of great story telling but all and all falls flat. I can't read the same situation over and over and enjoy it.

Keep an eye on the author but skip this one.

Oh, I love a good apocalypse book and this one lived-up to expectations.

The great cast of characters were well-developed and flawed in such humanizing ways. TEOTWRC is as much about finding ones-self as asteroids hitting the Earth and I think that will help this sorry transcend it's genre and appeal to a wide range of readers.

I wish my passport kept track of all the places I've traveled in books.

Day 1 of #melandprireadathon is fantasy/contemporary

I've only read a couple of fantasy books: #acotar & #theedgeofeverything but contemporary is a genre where my heart lies. ❤ I love digging into stories from other people's perspectives & watching characters evolve through growing up.

If you were transported to current reads setting what would your passport stamp be?

I hate to rate something so-so, but apocalypse (meteors)...survivors...must cross landscape...get to safety/family...meet danger/strange characters...whiny main character...slow pace...too long...don't think it added or took away from the genre. Not terrible, but we have so many of these books! Bonus is self published hit, so that is a plus. Good parts, but ultimately wanted it to end, not in the good sense.

When the world ends and you're stranded on the wrong side of the country, every second counts. No one knows this better than Edgar Hill. Over 500 miles of devastated waste land stretch between him and his family. To get back to them, he must push himself to the very limit or risk losing them forever. His best option? To run.
