Summary

Summary

A modern take on the classic apocalyptic novel, Hater tells the story of Danny McCoyne, an everyman forced to contend with a world gone mad, as society is rocked by a sudden increase in violent assaults. Christened “Haters” by the media, the attackers strike without warning and seemingly without reason. Within seconds, normally rational, self-controlled people become frenzied, vicious killers. As the carnage mounts, one thing soon is clear: everyone, irrespective of race, gender, age, or class, has the potential to become either a Hater or a victim. At any moment, even friends and family can turn on one another with violent intent. In the face of this mindless terror, all McCoyne can do is secure his family, seek shelter, and watch as the world falls apart. But when he bolts the front door, the question remains: Is he shutting the danger out or locking it in?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Moody’s nail-biter of a debut plausibly creates a nightmare world…this intelligent, well-written chiller heralds a significant new talent." Publishers Weekly
“A head-spinning thrill ride, a cautionary tale about the most salient emotion of the twenty-first century.” Guillermo del Toro, director, Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy
“British narrator Gerard Doyle’s reading makes the story sound so nightmarish and real that it’s deeply disturbing. Doyle’s voice is steeped in panic and desperation, forcing the listener to adopt his cause no matter how high the stakes. Doyle’s expert portrayal reminds us how transcendent audiobooks can be.” AudioFile
“The novel moves at a deliberate, relentless pace, feeding readers just enough information to keep them perplexed and paranoid, and the depiction of a society being rent at the seams by violence rings true. Moody creates some truly chilling scenes, but there are also flashes of black comedy…Engrossing and effective.” Kirkus Reviews
“Reader Gerard Doyle puts everything into his work as he ratchets up the tension that builds around the increase of the apocalyptic Hater attacks. He is the very essence of the perfect narrator for this story. His reading of Moody’s novel might actually make listeners’ hearts pound a little faster and their breathing a little erratic. This demands a non-stop listening experience.” Soundcommentary.com
