Review: This is where it ends by Marieke Nijkamp
10:00 a.m. The principal of Opportunity High School finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.
10:02 a.m. The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.
10:03 a.m. The auditorium doors won't open.
10:05 a.m. Someone starts shooting.
Told from four different perspectives over the span of fifty-four harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.
Literally me the whole freaking time! Right from the start after you get some very briefs introuctions and normality shit starts to happen and boy does it happen.
This book actually freaking terrified me!
The ball of emotions that this had me in were too much to handle.
Like bloody terrified of this book. I think it has a lot to do with the day and age that we are in that sadly school shootings are not uncommon and its just scary
As the book says, school is supposed to be a safe place and to think otherwise to this POINT is freaking scary ! Even if youre not in school anymore, this can sadly happen absolutely anywhere!
Not to sounds paranoid but no where is safe
Mariekes job at portraying this fear was phenomenal, I mean the characters being so terrified to the point that they just dont know what to do but they do know that they need to remain calm, otherwise so many lives are at stake.
Now, it could be that I am listening to Moonlight Sonata but thinking about this book, its story and listening to the song just makes me want to cry.
Personally this book I find it to be a masterpiece, one that I hope is turned to the silver screen with the proper talent to show the fear that I felt just thinking about this.
YES! This book just ... It was amazing.
