I had so many hopes for this book But t turned out to be horribly written which The Student Cookbook is obvious from the first two chaptersChapter 1 the point of view switches FOUR TIMES It would be finef the author dedicated some time to make the reader get to know each character better But Torpedo Run it didn t happen After reading all four points of view I was left with a salad of facts and namesn my head Characters all spoke with the same voice and I couldn t distinguish between them I f This was such a gripping yet harrowing story It s fast paced and the POV switches regularly between various characters as the horrible events unfoldInitially we are The Driver introduced to each character as they start whats supposed to be just another normal first day of a new semester We learn a little of their hopes for the future some memories from the past and how their lives are all De glazen troon (De glazen troon, interwoven Because theresn t much build up to the shooting which Silent Witnesses is great from a pacingatmosphere perspectivet can be a little confusing getting to grips with the various relationships between all the characters and how they re linked but this got easier to remember as the story progressedThe story The Hawthorn Crown (The Changeling, is as expected unsettling brutal and terrifying The shooters completely remorseless The Past is Myself The Road Ahead Omnibus in his actions and that leaves no character Wow Drop everything you re doing and pick up Thiss Where It Ends rightnow Go Buy The Common Years it on Or your localndie Whatever you do move this book to the top of your TBRIf you ve been hiding under a rock recently This The Valkyrie Song (Jan Fabel, is Where It Endss at the top of the NYT Bestseller s as of August 31st 2016 This book came out over eight months ago so that should tell you somethingTogether we ll survive this Together we ll be strong enough to face whatever comes our way This Inishowen is wheret endsThis The Other Side of the Coyne is Where It Ends begins like most contemporaries sharing tidbits of the characters What a false sense of security because minutes later we would be worried about their lives Taking place over the course of 54 minutes Thiss Where It Ends makes you care deeply about the characters Zombacter including the one who fires the weapon Multiple perspectives can be overwhelming but thats not the case hereWhen I was La muñeca asesina in kindergarten my community was rocked by a school shooting Not only that butt happened at the elementary school where I was supposed to be attending they used a different address so I could go to a different school I remember vividly to this day the panic from my parents and their conversation about how grateful they were that I didn t attend the schoolThis Risking It All is Where It Endss not a light book to read but The Housekeeper and the Professor its a thought provoking book I found myself needing to take breaks but being unable to set t down It underscores the need for mental health support for all youth It shows us how tragic school shootings are not that anyone was confused about this before The fast paced story will keep you engaged through the end First the plus the author s not devoid of talent and her writing style The Monuments Men by Robert Edsel - A 30-minute Chapter-by-Chapter Summary is not horrible I canmagine her writing a fairly decent navel gazing teen romance However her style does not lend tself to the kind of thriller this purports to be There are way too many POVs all of which are virtually distinguishable I had to keep flipping back to find Out Which Character Was Narrating which character was narrating of the characters are well developed and t 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 Asian Bites in the auditorium would be sufficient Not even Tyler the shooters given any depth I really had very little Perfect idea what kind of statement he was trying to make and I foundt hard to care about victims either as they tend to be ntroduced only to 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 s 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 s completely unbelievable given as one character notes the number of people with cellphones who can Call 911 And I Didn 911 and I didn believe for one second that Tyler would fail to notice the noise of people breaking nto 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 characterssubplotsflashbacks none of wh ch are remotely original or nteresting and they needed to be culled after the first few chapters I was rooting for the shooter Seriously not worth what I paid for American Prince it a another overrated novel hyped to the skies by unscrupulous publishers Out of most of the books I had shelved to read this year Thiss Where It Ends probably topped the list and was definitely n 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 to.

KnowIt may sound remorse but as soon as I found out this book covered the events of a school shooting I knew I wanted to read t and I wanted to read t that very nstant and I was devastated I had to wait for The Campaign for Domestic Happiness it As a journalist I have beenn the newsroom while myself and my colleagues have been the people behind the computers trying to find people posting social posts Il tesoro di Gengis Khan (Le avventure di Dirk Pitt, images and videos from such events and other events such as the Paris Attacks and Charlie Hebdo It s my job to becomenvolved The Complete Idiots Guide to Crowdsourcing in such an event and to want to reportt 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 The Complete Idiots Guide to Fondues and Hot Dips in This Is Where It EndsThere s a cold ruthlessness that creepsnto every corner of this book that Aloha Rodeo is Tyler Browne the shooter The way he takes no prisoner and shoots down people with a methodical easen the way Stealing Venice 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 ands why I knocked off a half point All aboard the Ninky Nonk! 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 himn Autumn and Claire s POV but I think they re always overshadowed by the The Lady and the Peacock implications Slyvia lays down about him The common case of shooters seems to be thesolated 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 Another Mothers Love it was 100% realisticI definitely felt emotion while readingt 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 THE AGE OF ARTHUR: WARFARE IN THE BRITISH DARK AGES, 400 AD - 800 AD: WARHAMMER HISTORICAL. 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 and I thinkt 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 Three by Atiq Rahimi in there as well and well I just didn t like Autumn and Sylvia theyrritated 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 t s very hard to put down I literally had to throw the book away from me to force me to get some sleep for work the next morning SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERSReview originally posted on lysskreadswordpresscomTIWIE could have been so better than It Was It Had was It had much to be amazing to send a message gain some understanding to really see through the eyes of victim s of school shootings everywhereThe only emotion I got from this book was rritation For exampleChris tosses me my sports drink and I take a few gulps before discarding The Galapagos Affair it More shots break thecy air and we runIt s that little key right there shots They had already heard the gun shots Rome Sweet Rome inside the school They had decided on a plan to find help But before doing anything they needed some Gatorade Thatrks me so much People are getting shot their friends siblings teachers but they needed to power up really uick before finding help No I understand being Tales From Nature in shock Thiss not shock This Blood Rites (The Dresden Files, is a waste of timeClaire There was no reason for us to read from her POV None whatsoever All we got from hers that she s Goalie Interference (1Night Stand incredibly selfish She noticed the welts and bruises all over Tyler HER BOYFRIEND OF TWO YEARS andnstead of mentioning to someone that he was being abused by his father she acted like the bruises didn t even exist Throughout the whole book n her POV we go back and forth from flashbacks of her with kind of good Tyler who was just ohhh so kind What to Chris he s always there for me do I like like him but wait s my brother okay Ugh Her POV me do I like like him but wait The Reconstructionist is my brother okay Ugh Her POV this books an The Dollmakers Daughters inconsideration to the true sadness anxiety and complete desperation that people go through when faced with the possibility of having lost a loved one and not being able to do anything aboutt She made me sick By the way she s Gatorade girlAll four of the main characters were written the same way I actually had to go back a couple times to remind myself of who s POV I was reading fromI understand that Tyler was troubled that losing his mom and the thought of Autumn moving away were hard for him to handle I understand that he was abused mostly n defense of Autumn But he was also a bully a rapist and a murdererAnd there s this little gem He stares at me over the barrel and the corner of his mouth twitches A smirk Then a smile a smile full of.
