Crash - A post apocalyptic / dystopian thriller.
“There are a quite a few adjectives I could use to describe Crash: frightening, graphic, raw, disturbing... and wonderfully written and brilliantly compelling! But let’s hope it isn’t prophetic! The book really is a great read, and the first time I read it, I couldn’t put it down - simply had to finish it.” Mark Hooper, Angel Editing.
Chris’s life of luxury is gone, devastated by the collapse of the European economy. Gas, water, and electricity are all cut off. Food is running out. Even his wife and daughter have gone. Huddled in the smallest room of their lavish house with his petrified and dirty eight-year-old son, Chris has made the decision to stay put. A small army of psychotic scavengers is outside, hell-bent on making the once-privileged pay. Chris now knows that not leaving when he had the option was the worst decision of his life.
Cowering in his home, he watches as his neighbours are dragged into the street and brutally executed. The scavengers have one more house to go, and then it will be his turn. He has to act fast, or he and his son will meet the same fate.
Driven by the need to survive, Chris has decided to keep secrets from his son. Secrets that will make all of the events up until this point seem trivial. Secrets that, one way or another, will come out before the day is done.

I loved this book. Dark, gritty and not the sweetness and light an apocalypse brings. This world is what I imagine the world would become. Human beings are not kind and good and want to help each other. Some would take advantage of the world being in chaos and do what these characters did. There are hard scenes to read but it must be understood that a real life apocalypse would allow members of society to live out their darkest fantasies and do horrific things to others. Which is what a few characters do to others. I cringed reading the deaths of some characters but I have read as bad before. If you want rainbows and puppies and sugar coating, this may not be for you. But if you want a look at what our world will become if a virus, meteor hitting us or some other form of life altering event happens, then this is the book for you!
Loved it! Looking forward to the next one!
This book is grusome reading. The overuse of words such as vomit and bile become boring.
This is a great post-apocalyptic read. Very intense, I couldn't put it down.
