The end of the world running club
The #1 International Bestseller!A Science Fiction & Fantasy Book to Keep on Your Radar by io9 and Gizmodo
A fast-paced, literary, dystopian thriller for fans of fiction like Andy Weir's The Martian, Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven, and Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
Asteroids are striking Earth, the end of the world is near, and Edgar Hill is on the wrong side of the country.
Over five hundred miles of devastated wastelands stretch between him and his family, and every second counts. His only option is to run—or risk losing everything he loves. He'll have to be ingenious and push himself to the very limit if he wants to see them again. Can he reach them in the race against time, or will the end of the world defeat him?
The End of the World Running Club is where the beautifully imagined post-apocalyptic world of The Salt Line meets the deep humanity of A Man Called Ove.
A dystopian page-turner about the endurance of the human body and spirit—perfect for lovers of apocalyptic science fiction, running books, and anyone who knows that true strength comes from love.
