Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated debut novel from Norman Reedus, acclaimed star of The Walking Dead

“This country wasn’t built on good—only fought for with good intentions.”

Jack’s dying mother told him, “Run and never look back.” He spent his life amassing wealth, but after losing his family, he has no one to share it with. Alone with his demons and a backpack, he heads to South America, where people with nothing teach him what matters.

After thrashing his dog-abusing boss, Hunter learns of his father’s death in a mysterious fire. Biker buddies Nugget and Itch ride with him from North Carolina to California. Stories from his father’s life help ease the struggles of small-town Americans. Hunter discovers a secret past.

Seventeen-year-old Anne flees Tennessee after her older brother attacks her. She whacks him with a skillet and hops a freight to Alabama with her best friend. Living hand to mouth, they build friendships, uncovering something they never had: family.

The Ravaged is a fast-paced, up-in-your-face novel of gritty realism, exploring three different personal quests with eerily parallel outcomes.

Worth the wait!

I’ve been anxiously awaiting this book. I’m constantly amazed by the cool life Mr. Norman Reedus has lived thus far. I just knew the man would be able to tell a good story. And I wasn’t wrong. If I’m honest, he could read from the phone book and I’d be happy - his voice is sexy and soothing — so that’s a bonus too. Hearing him read his own book makes the story even stronger. Definitely worth the credit and I’m hoping this is the first of many!

Disappointing

I love Norman Reedus as an actor and he's not too bad as a narrator. His author skills need a bit of work though. This book just flip flops between three different short stories that have nothing to do with each other. The characters never cross paths at all. Each story only felt like an introduction to a bigger story.

A book you can’t put down!

I was skeptical and then I was hooked.
Hunter, Jack and Anne come from completely different backgrounds. The journey of each character weaves an incredible book about what it means to be a decent human being. I seriously hope there will be sequel. All 3 characters have more to their story.
Norman Reedus, multitalented man.
5 Serious Stars.

The Ravaged

I have not finished listening to this but so far, so good. Quite eloquent. Not what I was expecting.

An interesting perspective!

There’s a lot of heart and soul in this book. The diversity, the way things are described paints an amazing picture. Following all three characters was amazing! I sincerely hope this is not Norman’s one and only book. It’s been a long time since I’ve come across a book this is so rich and heartfelt. This book is absolutely worth the read and please keep an open mind. This was not written with those that are easily offended in mind. But, it is meant to open hearts and show that you truly have no idea what some people are going through and to be kind and open your heart to others. Lessons learned and good deeds done along with deep emotions and memories. Kudos to Mr Norman Reedus. Please keep writing and narrating.

Hits right at home.

Good raw stories that tell the story of finding acceptance, belonging, and love the hard way.

Okay, but not that great.

Norman Reedus’ voice is probably the only reason I bothered to finish the book. It wasn’t horrible but was a bit boring. I liked the characters and their stories but felt like it needed something more, just not sure what.
