I enjoyed it but....
on 15 December 2013
....as with another of the authors books I read, I felt it could be doing with a few strokes of a good editor's pen. The story was good and kept me hooked but some of the characters thoughts were a bit unbelievable, almost as if the author felt he had to shoe horn in every bit of research he had done one way or another. There were a few examples of this with one character thinking in great detail about other mass shootings, another thinking about historical figures from the town and one who had been shot giving us a detailed biology lesson. It just felt unnecessary and I admit I started to skip over these bits as they did nothing for the story.
The genre appeals to me and I would read more by the author but I do wish he would cut out the waffling and get more realistic about what the characters in these kinds of situations would really be thinking.
