Summary:

Edgar Hill is thirty-five and caught in his own headlock. Overweight slob, underperforming husband, and reluctant father-for Ed, the world may as well have already ended. So when it does end in a catastrophic asteroid strike and Edgar and his family find refuge in an Edinburgh army barracks, it comes as something of a relief.But nothing's ever that simple. Returning from a salvage run in the city, Edgar finds his family gone, taken to the south coast for evacuation by an international task force. Suddenly he finds himself facing a grueling journey on foot across a devastated United Kingdom. Edgar must race against time and overcome his own shortcomings, not to mention hundred-mile canyons and a heavily flooded west coast, to find the people he loves before he loses them forever.This is a vivid, gripping story of hope, long-distance running, and how we break the limits of our own endurance.

    Awesome journey with great characters. I wasn't thrilled with the finale and found it rather unsatisfying, but every step of the journey there was vivid and captivating. Definitely had immense tension. The narrator does great characters but there was WAY too much low end on his voice compared to any other audio book I've heard. It made it a muffled mess to listen to in the car.
