    At the beginning of this novel, I pretty much hated the protagonist, Marty Slack He was timid, shallow and self involved and pretty much a stereotype of everything annoying about Corporate America types As time went on, he began to grow on me as he wandered around the city By the time Marty s plot twist revelation was revealed, I had already figured it out but it still worked in context of the story.The book itself was an interesting snapshot of the aftermath of a major disaster and how peopl At the beginning of this novel, I pretty much hated the protagonist, Marty Slack He was timid, shallow and self involved and pretty much a stereotype of everything annoying about Corporate America types As time went on, he began to grow on me as he wandered around the city By the time Marty s plot twist revelation was revealed, I had already figured it out but it still worked in context of the story.The book itself was an interesting snapshot of the aftermath of a major disaster and how people react Some of the images were pretty disturbing but nothing rang all that false or contrived Although flooding Hollywood was a little reminiscent of the dam burst in the movie Earthquake but still pretty cool As with any disaster movie story, Marty should have died numerous times...

    Actually, I read the ePub edition from Kobobooks, but I assume it s the same text The Walk chronicles Marty Slack s journey through a hellish land of earthquakes, explosions, floods,earthquakes and various other disasters It s a fast paced, episodic read, often profane and violent and funny The pacing and the spare prose remind me of a TV movie, which suits the story perfectly.Martin Slack is a television executive, so right away if you have any experience with television executives yo Actually, I read the ePub edition from Kobobooks, but I assume it s the same text The Walk chronicles Marty Slack s journey through a hellish land of earthquakes, explosions, floods,earthquakes and various other disasters It s a fast paced, episodic read, often profane and violent and funny The pacing and the spare prose remind me...
