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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 2/20/2014

    " This book is faster than the Autumn series. I was surpised at how well written the ordinary scenes are - they really pull you in. Also, I find them to be well written because everyone has experienced some of those situations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 2/14/2014

    " While entertaining, this book didn't add anything new to the scary epidemic thriller. I quickly tired of the chapters opening with murders and the blood splatter design of the book is overdone. A good fast read with few surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zombieaps | 2/10/2014

    " Sure this book has been done in a way, sure it's not going to be taught in a lit class - who cares - this book delivers some badass good period. The ending takes it to a sky rocketing level, and shows some new thinking in the genre. At times it's an old story, but sometimes I don't mind hearing old stories, I want to poke through the compost pile and see what I've eaten before and how it has changed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 2/1/2014

    " Amazing!! Book gave me the chills and thrills all at the same time, I needed a book like this and I got it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thalestral | 1/19/2014

    " 3rd star is for originality, the plot ran out of steam in the midsection unfortunately. One book where the film adaptation may well be superior. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 1/9/2014

    " Very quick and easy read, I couldn't put it down, love this kind of story. I especially like how the story developed to show the point of view from the haters and the non-haters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris-lee | 12/18/2013

    " Love the series, the beginning is rather slow but it takes a shocking twist! A great interpretation of the zombie esque theme, set in Ireland that makes it very real! This could happen!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amaroq | 12/10/2013

    " it was too graphic for me in a few ways but the plot was very well thought out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Inoli | 2/19/2013

    " Ingeniously conceived and executed concepts. Seriously deep and complex commentary. Very violent and definitely not for everyone. Extremely engaging page-turner for me. More on this later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Soapykitty | 8/18/2012

    " It started out good,but I didn't care for the last part of the book.I started reading Dog(s?) Blood last night and I'm not loving it either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel DeLappe | 12/9/2011

    " Damn fine book. Very intense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Folsom | 12/2/2011

    " This has got to be one of the best apocaliptic books I've ever read. let me tell you I will DEFINATLY be back to read 2 and 3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisella | 8/6/2011

    " Wow! very good,surprising. Story twisted midway, well written "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 T | 7/30/2011

    " Couldn't even make it past the beginning...lots of nasty language and violence. Boo "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 5/18/2011

    " Easy read, but enjoyable. Really like the series and intend on finishing the third book too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 5/12/2011

    " I found this debut novel by David Moody to be crafted well enough, but the mundane existence of the main characters really brings it down to a level well below action-packed. The horror is pretty standard for this subgenre, with few surprises. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 4/28/2011

    " Interesting...Interesting. It has me captured enough that I already have the next part (Dog Blood) reserved at the library. Some of the parts seemed a little repetative, but good twist in the story line. I recomend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 4/24/2011

    " the first 2/3'rds were ok, the last 75 pages or so were just so wonky, failed to keep my interest. I'll give the sequel a go though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cole | 4/21/2011

    " So very cool. This book actually scared me as I read it. I would read a few chapters on a bus ride and then get off the bus and feel apprehension as I walked in public. It is a really good read and a very good and unique take on apocalypse fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 4/12/2011

    " If you like fast paced mayhem, then you really can't go wrong. If you want something with a bit more, then look elsewhere. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vivien | 3/21/2011

    " I read this because Guillermo del Toro said it was a must-read (or something like that) on the cover, and I love Guillermo del Toro. Now I know - don't love Guillermo del Toro for his book reviews. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 3/10/2011

    " Different, fast paced and engaging. A great read and although slightly sad, leaves you thinking about the story afterwards for some time. "

Author David Moody

David Moody grew up in Birmingham on a diet of horror and pulp science fiction books and movies.

He has written a number of horror novels, including Autumn, which has been downloaded more than half a million times since its publication in 2001. He lives in the United Kingdom with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his preoccupation with Armageddon.
