Free read This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp – healthymealss.us

Verdammt verliebt kOut of most of the books I had shelved to read this year This is Where It Ends probably topped the list and was definitely in the top five of my anticipated reads of 2016 This book tells the story of a school shooting from a number of different points of views And that s all you need tonowIt may sound remorse but as soon as I found out this book covered the events of a school shooting I new I wanted to read it and I wanted to read it that very instant and I was devastated I had to wait for it As a journalist I have been in the newsroom while myself and my colleagues have been the people behind the computers trying to find people posting social posts images and videos from such events and other events such as the Paris Attacks and Charlie Hebdo It s my job to become involved in such an event and to want to report it I ve seen the graphic videos but nothing will ever come close to being as chilling as the eye witness accounts regularly reported by media and accounts such as the fictional ones laid out in This Is Where It EndsThere s a cold ruthlessness that creeps into every corner of this book that is Tyler Browne the shooter The way he takes no prisoner and shoots down people with a methodical ease in the way it seems most shooters do It s frankly terrifying and I think the detached cruelty held by Browne could be uite reminiscent to how we ve seen real life shooters being described The only problem I had with the book and is why I nocked off a half point is that I don t think all school students are soblack and white as Browne We did have different view points of his character his sister who loved him her girlfriend who hated him and his ex girlfriend who had loved him once We do see the good sides of him in Autumn and Claire s POV but I think they re always overshadowed by the implications Slyvia lays down about him The common case of shooters seems to be the isolated white male often with a gun fascination who seems to think the world owes him something and he s angry he hasn t got whatever he s looking for yet And while Tyler certainly was that the book gave him another edge that was pure evil and I m not sure it was 100% realisticI definitely felt emotion while reading it and unlike other reviews I found myself attaching myself to some characters but not all the main characters Asha Matt Tom s and Farseed were a few that really locked themselves into my heart I found myself silently begging that none of them would get hurt and I could feel my stress levels rising as I flipped each page waiting to see the outcomeEven though they were some of the main characters I actually didn t care about Autumn and Sylvia I

#FOUND THEIR LOVE STORY TOO DRAMATIC #
their love story too dramatic I think it tried to take too much away from the overall plot I understand that their relationship was one of the things that brought Tyler to breaking point but there were other factors in there as well and well I just didn t like Autumn and Sylvia they irritated me and I don t even have a really good reason for that I much preferred reading from Tom s POV I really loved him and the whole hero thing he had going onOverall I found this a great fast paced read and once the action gets Going It S Very Hard To Put Down I Literally it s very hard to put down I literally to throw the book away from me to force me to get some sleep for work the next morning First the plus the author is not devoid of talent and her writing style is not horrible I can imagine her writing a fairly decent navel gazing teen romance However her style does not lend itself to the Inverloch Volume 4 kind of thriller this purports to be There are way too many POVs all of which are virtually distinguishable I had toeep flipping back to find out which character was narrating none of the characters are well developed and it s hard to care about any of them The whole Clare storyline needs to be cut I got tired of her endless self absorption and she seemed an unlikely girlfriend for Tyler One set of people working to rescue those trapped in the auditorium would be sufficient Not even Tyler the shooter is given any depth I really had very little idea what ind of statement he was trying to make and I found it hard to care about victims either as they tend to be introduced only about victims either as they tend to be introduced only be executed seconds later The pacing absolutely horrible the author really can t write action scenes the shooter can hardly pull the trigger within the narrative shifting to a flashback of some utterly generic teen drama which destroys all possible tension There is no real sense of this being a life and death situation one character een takes the chance to make a date with a girl he likes while rescuing hostages The time taken for a response by emergency services is completely unbelievable given as one character notes the number of people with cellphones who can call 911 and I didn t believe for one second that Tyler would fail to notice the noise of people breaking into the auditorium or far that matter that people had started to sneak out The author needs a few writing classes before attempting to write anything else she has way way too many chara.

    TIWIE could have been so much better than it was. It had so much potential to be amazing, to send a message, gain some understanding—to really see through the eyes of victim’s of school shootings everywhere.

    Chapter 1: the point of view switches FOUR TIMES. It would be fine if the author dedicated some time to make the reader get to know each character better. But it didn't happen. After reading all four points of view, I was left with a salad of facts and names in my head. Characters all spoke with the same voice, a

I can imagine her writing a fairly decent navel gazing teen romance. However her style does not lend itself to the kind of thriller this purports to be.
