Summary

Chris's life of luxury is gone, devastated by the collapse of the European economy. Huddled in a small room with his petrified ten-year-old son, Chris made the decision to stay in his lavish and once cherished home. Gas, water, and electricity are all cut off; his wife and daughter have gone, and food is running out.
Driven by the need to survive, Chris has decided to keep secrets from his son. Secrets that will make everything else up until this point seem trivial. Secrets that—one way or another will come out before the day is done.
Cowering in his home, he watches as his neighbors are dragged into the street and brutally executed by a small army of psychotic scavengers hell-bent on making the formerly privileged pay. As they methodically purge each home, Chris realizes that staying was the worst decision of his life. Secrets or not, he has to act fast; the murderous pack only has one more house before they reach his…
Crash - A post-apocalyptic/dystopian thriller.

Gripping Story!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really loved this audio book....the narrator did an excellent job of bringing this story to life..and giving the listener a vivid, realistic picture of the father and son's plight. As you listen, you can imagine the terror with each word. The author of the Crash series gives the reader a great story...and listening to this story will make you stop what you are doing to make sure you hear every word. Highly recommend.

What other book might you compare Crash: Book One to, and why?

I love all the series written by author Michael Robertson...and I would compare this to The Alpha Plague. Both are apocalyptic stories that will have you craving the next book in the series.

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

The narrator brings you into the story so well that you feel exactly what the characters are going through....I felt horror, sadness, hopelessness, afraid.....and without spoiling the ending....you do want to cry!

Any additional comments?

Please read all the series by author Michael Robertson. Crash, New Reality, The Alpha Plague....all of these books really pull you in and make you think. Great author and recommended reading!!

moved very slowly. not a book I'd recommend

music between chapters made it sound cheap and tacky. reader made the book sound eerie. story moved so slowly it irritated me. was more like a monologue than a story. bit too much gore. lacked action. didn't have me on the edge of my seat. had me bored in fact. won't read 2nd book.

A BISCUIT SHORT OF A FULL TIN

IS THIS LORD OF THE FKING FLY?
Sorry, Virginia, but their are people like this in our world and the minute something happens, to allow it, they will come out of the woodwork and they will have followers. You look at our current election in the good old US of A and the hatred on both sides, we are getting dangerously close.

THIS WASN'T A WORLD FOR FAT WHITE MEN IN SUITS
There are some gory scenes and some involve children. The majority of the book is not the violence though. Most of it centers around the main character's bad marriage. The bad marriage which is all his fault. I felt no empathy for the guy.

WHAT'S GREECE GOT TO DO WITH IT.
I hate to disagree with the beautiful reviewer with the long flowing hair, but this is not for Konrath or Crouch fans. When you listen to those two, the story is all about entertainment and it is either twilight zone like or so outrageous, that you know it is not real. This was not that entertaining, was too real and spent too much time on the bad marriage. Having said that, I put the next two books in the series in my wish list. I want to know what happens to the kid and it looks like it will be book three, before I can find out.

I did not receive this book for free, I bought it during the % off sale. The brutally honest do not get freebies.

WELL WRITTEN AND MACABRE!

What made the experience of listening to Crash: Book One the most enjoyable?

it was a very enthralling story...sad and dark...I was shocked!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mmmm...really no faves...but I guess I will say Chris...all these characters are messed up!

Have you listened to any of Steve Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no, but I certainly would and will!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When George leaves Michael...even though it wae almost certain still a death sentence...he at least showed a little compassion...

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This is a scary and messed up story...its about a post apocalyptic world...not done by war, but by a financial crash...causing a fall in society...no zombies...but regular people are the monsters here...really dark listen about a father and son trying to survive...I did like it, it was well written and narrated and I will listen to book 2!
