I like that this book touches on important social issues and smoothly incorporates them in the narrative. Personally, I think knowing when you are going to die would not be fun. I guess it might be good for getting affairs in order, etc., but I think it's too frightening. Thanks for your insight!
Fine old Christmas, with the snowy hair and ruddy face, had done his duty that year in the noblest fashion, and had set off his rich gifts of warmth and color with all the heightening contrast of frost and snow.

I’m definitely a big fan of thrillers and this sounds like such an interesting concept. Showing the issue of gun possession and highlighting the issues between the different age generations, both such strong points that need discussing more.

Latest Review: A Thousand Seeds of Joy by Ananda Karunesh

Post by Life In Books » 13 Aug 2018, 02:52

I sampled the book on Amazon. The topic of gun acquisition has been taken up in the novel by the author Van Fleisher. The growing instances of gun-related incidents have grown in America. Van has taken this situation in account and has penned a very interesting and well-written fictional novel. There are different characters which have been portrayed interestingly with interesting instances of their lives and the concerned issue. There is a side related to technology and its implication in the particular scenario. And as mentioned by Ayoomisope in the review anyone interested in C/T/M/H genre would definitely enjoy this read. Cheers. :) :)

This book sounds very interesting. I love science fiction stories like this. This book is so complex. Knowing when you die and what people do when they find out and all of the chaos it causes seems like a great plot. Glad to also hear that the characters are well developed. Thanks for your review.

The author grapples with very serious societal issues. One is the issue of safety and security of senior citizens, the debate on gun ownership and use and finally on health care. A very insightful piece of fiction.

Latest Review: Guilt by David Taylor Black

Post by ellieonline03 » 13 Aug 2018, 03:14

It's a very thought-provoking question. No one knows when they will die. I just know that if it is true, knowing when someone will die will cause panic. Though it may be a good thing as it gives you to settle everything before leaving. Thank you for your review!

This is one of the most insightful books about the contemporary society. The issue of gun control has been tactfully presented by the author.

:geek2: :geek2: :geek2: Amazing review, personally not fond of action/drama for books but the story concerns revenge. I would like to know if they will realize at the end that revenge will not be a great option. Thanks I'll consider this book after reading the other. :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-studyingbrown:
