The Walk - Goldberg, Lee
The Walk is the literary equivalent of a disaster movie, an excellent disaster movie. This book is free for amazon prime members, but is well worth the $3.99 it costs everyone else. Marty Slack is TV network executive. He starts out as someone you don't really like. By the end of the book, only the most jaded reader isn't pulling for Marty. The big one hits California while Marty is at a remote location in downtown Los Angeles. Once he's out from under his car, his one goal is to get home to his wife. It's a long and interesting walk. Marty learns a lot about himself along the way, and doesn't like some of what he learns. A real page turner. Very highly recommended.
