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?
The storys main character is your average joe. He works a job he hates, has a wife and three kids, lives in a flat too small for his family, and never seems to have enough money to make ends meet. On his way to work one day he sees a violent act against an elderly lady and as time goes on he sees more violent acts happen to other people. The people committing these acts are called Haters. No one knows what causes these episodes or why these people are driven to do what they do. All they know is that it is spreading all over the world and people are panicking. Who will be the next one to turn? How will you know? Everything seems to shut down and people lock themselves in their home. But what if you could see what the Haters see, feel what they feel, get to observe how they are treated by the nonhaters. Are they really the bad ones or are we?Beware though... this is supposed to be a trilogy and the first book leaves off as a to be continued. So if you get through 3/4 of this book and are enjoying it, I would recommend you run out and get the 2nd book in the series called Dog Blood.
