The Running Man Book Review: Set within a dystopian future in which the poor are seen more by the government as worrisome rodents than actual human beings. Ben Richards, is quick to realize this as he watches his daughter, Cathy, grow more sick by the day. Desperate for money to pay Cathy’s medical bills, Ben enlists in a true reality style game show where the objective is to merely stay alive.
The Running Man is everything you expect from the best in the business. It keeps you on the hook till the end. Nothing like the film.
Do not read the intro from the author, as it gives away the ending.
