Ok, so I just started this today. I read the prologue and the first couple of pages of Chapter 1.
I actually had to put my kindle down and take stock if I was really up for this.
It starts out in ’09 with an older gentleman getting in line for the chance of a job. He’s next to a young single mother who has her kid with her. He’s super helpful and I was totally connected to them. And when a shadow grey Mercedes shows up and runs through the crowd, guess who is in front? An older man, a young woman and a baby. Mowed down. I just lost it.
I am going to be picking this up again tomorrow. I hope it doesn’t gut me every other chapter.
