The pressure's on for Nick and Kate to make this work-even if they have to lay their lives on the line. His ability to stay calm was partially due to the lingering effects of the tranquilizer shot he'd been given eighteen hours earlier, in Honolulu.
It was also due to his belief that if his abductors had really wanted him dead, he would already be dead instead of napping in a high-end casket. Especially after he had thrown one of the kidnappers through a glass coffee table and tried to choke another with a kukui nut lei.
So despite the dire nature of his present situation, Nick was optimistic about his future. He lifted the heavy lid of his coffin and sat up to find himself in a bank vault. Concrete walls were lined with hundreds of safe-deposit boxes. The ceiling was low, outfitted with strips of fluorescent lights. The floor was white tile.
Social and environmental predictors of walking among older adults
A twelve-inch-thick steel door was ajar, as was an iron-barred gate that opened into the vault. It took Nick only a second to realize that it was all fake.
The iron bars of thegate were PVC pipes that had been painted black. The wall of safe-deposit boxes was a large photograph.
The floor was linoleum, the steel door made of painted Styrofoam. It was the equivalent of a movie set. Someone was training for a heist and Nick had a good idea which vault they were planning to hit-the basement diamond vault located in the Executive Merchants Building in Antwerp, Belgium. A man walked onto the set. He was dressed like a fashion-conscious Angel of Death in a black turtleneck sweater, black jeans, and black loafers. He was in his fifties, but had the athletic build of someone thirty years younger.
Someone was training for a heist and Nick had a good idea which vault they were planning to hit-the basement diamond vault located in the Executive Merchants Building in Antwerp, Belgium. A man walked onto the set. He was dressed like a fashion-conscious Angel of Death in a black turtleneck sweater, black jeans, and black loafers.
He was in his fifties, but had the athletic build of someone thirty years younger. It was his strikingly angular face, and the thinning, pockmarked skin glued like yellowing wallpaper to his sharp cheekbones, that betrayed his age. Nick had never formally met the man, but he remembered him from Hawaii. He had led the abduction team. He spoke excellent English with a slight accent. Nick knew he was Balkan. The man tossed Nick a cold bottle of Nick caught the bottle and noted that it was Valvert, a Belgian brand.
Nick was pretty certain he wasn't in Hawaii anymore. Nick took a long drink before he replied. At least I was able to lie flat.
Her maverick partner Nick Fox had rented the house, and last night he'd disappeared. His red Ferrari was still parked in the driveway. His blood was also left behind. Okay, maybe it wasn't his blood, but it was someone's blood. And the blood trail led to the front door. The book features a kind of Hollywood plot twist at the end, which would have been mind-bending a decade or two ago but has been kind of played out by this point.
Overall, a competent apocalyptic story with a good personal story set within it, but nothing truly special. Holy crap, this book was awful. I kept reading it expecting to to live up to some of the great reviews it was given, but it never happened.
The whole thing read like some sort of eighth grader's creative writing final paper. It had one-dimensional characters, an all-too-obvious "plot twist" and far too many instances of the writer simply telling the reader something ie: Toss in a number of typos and grammatical errors and it Holy crap, this book was awful.
Toss in a number of typos and grammatical errors and it was a total dud. View 2 comments. Apr 27, Paul Totman rated it really liked it Shelves: A thoroughly enjoyable read despite the typos!
I'd never read anything by this author before but after The Walk I'll certainly be reading more by Lee Goldberg. Great dialogue, great characters - an all-round fun book to read!
Oct 23, Rick rated it liked it Shelves: A quick read. Like the movies "Wild" and "" were mixed together. Apr 07, Nancy Silk rated it it was amazing. The city is in ruins, freeways have tumbled, the airport destroyed.
Marty Slack crawls out from beneath his Mercedes. He can get no cellphone connection. His one mission is to get home to his wife Beth. He'll have to walk. His journey will be dangerous and a challenge to his endurance. This is an amazing story of survival. It's a thriller that will leave you breathless, and the ending i "Fire And Brimstone" In this powerful story, Los Angeles has been struck with an extremely powerful earthquake. It's a thriller that will leave you breathless, and the ending is heart-stopping.
Highly recommend. Jan 11, Freda Witt rated it really liked it. He starts out for home, to get to his wife. On the way, he runs into a crude man who helps him through the journey. Dec 12, John Wiltshire rated it really liked it. Sure, it's written with being turned into a movie in mind--it's even about a studio exec who started out as a script reader.
But that's why it's so readable in a way. The Big One finally hits LA and Marty, visiting one of his sets down town, has to negotiate the earthquake-devastated city to get home to his wife. Simple tale but told with blistering power and no redundancies.
It may be because I've just escaped from reading Drood , but the simplicity of this tale is like sharp-edged glass: I'm a huge fan of post-apocalyptic novels, but all too often they can be rambling and anecdotal. This one starts with Marty under his car and from the moment he surfaces and realises what's happening it's almost impossible to stop reading. He's determined to stick with his plan and not stop for anything or anyone, but events, predictably, conspire against him.
If I have minor gripe, the author suffers from the same delusion as Konkoly The Jakarta Pandemic in that he assumes his readers are a. I've been to LA, but I didn't memorise the street layout and I can't follow any of the detailed descriptions of Marty's route home. Perhaps the author is Marty: But it's a minor gripe. If I can survive Drood I can survive a few street directions.
So far, I'm only surprised this isn't a 5-star book across the board. I'd describe it as unputdownable. I'll update when done. Finished this one today because it was hard to put down. It had a major twist at the end. He's Marty's alter ego , Marty's antithesis--gun-toting, loud-mouthed, heart-on-his sleeve bounty hunter. He tags along with Marty well, obviously, as he's just a product of his imagination saving him from scrapes and also pushing him into them when Marty needs to step up to the base and be a man.
I thought one or two appearances of this character were imagined, but I'm not sure I fully accept that they all were. A couple of times Buck shoots something, which at the end we discover is Marty shooting them. It didn't work for me, I'm afraid, this twist. It was a little too contrived to add to that movie script--a wanna be Fight Club moment. Nov 28, Char rated it liked it.
The Walk is about one man's journey through the destroyed city of LA. Marty is a tv network executive and not very likeable to boot. Once the main quake is over, Marty decides he needs to walk home to get to his wife.
This story is about that walk. I don't want to get any further into the plot, but I will say that this book reads like a TV show or miniseries. It is very easy to picture in your mind as the au The Walk is about one man's journey through the destroyed city of LA. It is very easy to picture in your mind as the author describes what Marty is experiencing. The main character does develop and grow throughout the story, but in a predictable way. In my opinion, the ending was rather easy to guess, but welcome nonetheless.
At the very end of the Kindle edition there were links to a group of books regarding Inspector Monk from the tv show. Apparently Mr. Goldberg writes these as well. He also has written for the show Diagnosis Murder. Perhaps this explains the author's ability to write so vividly? In any case, this was a good, fun read.. Mar 09, W.
Ripley rated it it was amazing. When a massive earthquake strikes L. Along the way Marty encounters horrific events and danger as the comforts of our modern lifeline are cut. Cell phones don't work, cars become death traps, wild animals roam free and sustaining food and water become premium. Marty's introspective look at his life and experiences sustain his strength and sanity as he walks, resorting to reflecting on Movies and singing TV theme songs the Chapters are movie and TV references.
Does he make it? I won't ruin this for you. There is not another book like this anywhere.
Devilish in its suspense, masterful in its realization. This is a unique entry from one of America's finest writers. Goldberg is a screenwriter, producer, best-selling author and Publisher.
Don't miss this one. Jan 21, Jerry rated it liked it Shelves: This was a kindle freebie..

Kept my attention. Lee Goldberg writes screenplays, and this reads like it in that the timing and coincidences are quite a bit over the top. Marty just happens to be in the right place at the right time, and manages to just barely escape from quite a few extreme situations, as he walks from Los Angeles to Calabasas in his effort to be reunited with his wife.

I was born and raised in and around the suburbs of LA and enjoyed the frequent references to his location as he moved from LA out to the valley. I kept wondering why he wouldn't just go find a mountain bike and take off. He could have made the ride in a few hours, but I guess that wouldn't have been as adventurous! There's a nice twist with a character he meets along the way May 06, Todd Russell rated it really liked it Shelves: A massive earthquake strikes the heart of Los Angeles and TV Executive Martin Slack must walk through 30 miles of carnage to get to his wife in Calabasas.
Along the way he'll encounter various conflicts. This is a fairly basic survival story that skips the more familiar group ensemble story a la Irwin Allen who is mentioned a couple times in the story.
It moves fairly rapidly, save for some flashbacks exploring the relationship between Martin and his wife. There is one pretty good surprise at A massive earthquake strikes the heart of Los Angeles and TV Executive Martin Slack must walk through 30 miles of carnage to get to his wife in Calabasas. There is one pretty good surprise at the end that won't be spoiled here.
The motivation to keep reading is to find out if Martin makes it to his wife. There are also a couple nice parallels to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This book looks like it's going to be terrible from the front cover and the appearance of being self-published.
However, I'm glad to say that, for once, this sort of book has turned out to be very enjoyable.Nick was pretty certain he wasn't in Hawaii anymore. Jun 20, Cil Davoli rated it it was amazing. Walking behaviors resonate with environmental studies attempting to better understand where, why, and how community members engage in PA [ 15 , 16 ].
High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day's work. Historical, romance, suspense, mystery or a combination. His journey will be dangerous and a challenge to his endurance. As is inevitable in a book like this, his walk will be a journey of self-discovery and will allow Marty ample opportunity to examine his life, the choices he has made, and perhaps to become a better person in the end.
