I want to be up front with potential readers - I am a huge fan of Michael Robertson. I have read almost everything he has written and I am trying to remedy that. This author is a fan of the British Horror Genre championed by the 28 day books and movies. He lives in England which is the center of those stories.

Rat Run is a novella and fits that format well. It is a post apocalyptic story of the apparent futility of life in that era. The main characters are a father and daughter as they struggle over a ten year period to survive the horrors of their environment. If you are a parent you will really feel for them.

The writing style is what keeps me coming back for more. The author does not disappoint in this regard. The story is crisp and fast paced while maintaining the humanity of the characters. The story follows a logical line but the ending was unexpected and a surprise. You simply need to give this fine author your time and read this novella and his other works. ( )
