    (This Is Where It Ends) [PDF/EBOOK] æ Marieke Nijkamp where do i even begin with this? in my opinion the biggest but not only problem of this book is that it takes a senseless tragedy and uses it as a ploy for people to read the book it shows the reader that school shootings are a thing but the news does that in real life what we need is than the crime itselfif i am going to pick up a book about an individual who brings a gun to school i want to know than that why did they act in

    (This Is Where It Ends) [PDF/EBOOK] æ Marieke Nijkamp This is a really hard one to review because on one hand I think it is a fantastically written book that deserves all the praise but on the other it wasn't really for me and I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would So I'm settling in the middle with a good 4 star rating 5 for overall great writing 3 for my personal reading experience and hopefully I won't fail at explaining why I appreciate the genius of this book

This Is Where It Ends review Í 104 Read & Download This Is Where It Ends Cade Marieke Nijkamp's brutal powerful fictional account of a school shooting is important in its timeliness BustlecomA gritty emotional and suspenseful read and although fictionalized it reflects on a problematic and harrowing issue across the nation BuzzfeedA compelling brutal story of an unfortunately all too familiar situation a school shooting Nijkamp portrays the events thoughtfully recounting fifty four intense minutes of bravery love and loss BookRiot. This is a really hard one to review because on one hand I think it is a fantastically written book that deserves all the praise but on the other it wasn t really for me and I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would So I m settling in the middle with a good 4 star rating 5 for overall great writing 3 for my personal reading experience and hopefully I won t fail at explaining why I appreciate the genius of this book but why it also wasn t that enjoyable for meUnfortunately I believe I placed too many personal expectations on this book thinking it would be a high intensity suspense novel but I got an entirely different reading experience than anticipated My own personal hype is absolutely a huge reason as to why I don t think I enjoyed this book to it s full potential I think had I been aware of the actual plot of the book as opposed to just knowing it s about a school shooting I probably would have been prepared to read it with an unbiased mindIt seemed that the majority of this story actually occurs through flashbacks which is another personal book pet peeve of mine and the present plot was fairly static in my opinion until about 70 80% of the way through the book The course of the story is essentially that someone starts shooting there s multiple multiple flashbacks a scene in the present every so often that is focused on mostly dialogue between characters flashbacks and then the climaxfalling actionending I m in no way suggesting that this format suggests a bad book it s just the polar opposite of what I like to readThe writing was also really well done The story was very vivid especially regarding characters The prose was elouent but not distracting and absolutely fueled the story in a positive way The book itself is really interesting to me because the entirety of the story takes place over the span of less than an hour which is pretty unheard of for the novels I read At points it was difficult to keep up because you have four perspectives occurring at the same time so it often felt like you had to rewind time a bit and replay the last few minutes for someone else to fully grasp the other point of views It is definitely something that I feel would be hard to accomplish and although it wasn t my favorite method of storytelling I think it came across well in the endI say in a lot of my reviews that I am a plot based reader I don t need to fall head over heels in love with characters as long as there is something big driving the story So I prematurely imagined this book would be a really elaborate action filled novel when it is in my opinion ENTIRELY character based If you are a character based reader where the peak of your reading pleasure comes from complex characters with intricate back stories please read this book It s the book for you I promise The characters are really the driving action of the story I honestly can t recall better written characters They are all individual uniue with clear cut past experiences current motivations and future hopes There s also a great load of diversity in this novel as well with 2 LGBT main characters as well as 2 Latinx main characters one being LGBT and I will say that I personally am not emotionally invested in this particular set of characters Again it could be because I didn t go into this story with the intention of being attached to them but I can completely understand why so many readers are emotional over these characters They re flawlessly constructed really well written and are the types of individuals who should represent a story like thisWhile plot based novels are my niche I think the fact that this story is focused on the victims and survivors of such a tragedy was the better direction for this story It was heartbreaking to see what these characters experienced what they lost and what they cannot regain This story shows school shootings for what they are a horrific traumatizing experience No character leaves this story unscathed and the imagesmessages that will be received from this story are the ones that deserve the spotlight Though I was hoping for a loaded plot I feel it would have overshadowed the real meaning of the story and shifted the focus in a negative way But I can say with sincerity that all the decisions the author made regarding this novel were the right ones even if it wasn t what I wanted from the book at firstSo ultimately I don t think I enjoyed this book to my full potential but I can still appreciate the art of it s construction It is a book I would recommend to others and I will definitely be reading from this author in the future

Initial reaction I think my reaction to this book can be best summed up in something that I said in the context of the discussion I had with a few of my readerly friendsI think this might be a classic case of an author who tries to write a story that s bigger than their ability to tell and trying to incorporate too much without any rhyme or reason to itBut I will say this very clearlyThis is NOT a fair portrait of a tragedy befalling its castThis is NOT a good psychological portrayal of the tough themes and choices the book touches upon in the scheme of its eventsThis is ABSOLUTELY NOT a good portrayal of diversity it s of a offending reference of otherness and bland identity than anything else And ye Gods I m angry at the portrayal hereThis is NOT a story I would recommend on its subject matter to be taken as a mature resonant narrative on its themes Try reading Jennifer Brown s Hate List insteadFull reviewThis is probably the point where people are saying Okay Rose You have some explaining to do because this actually sounds like a good bookInitially I thought so too that s why I reuested it as a galley I was pumped over this book something similar to my initial excitement to Katie Stout s Hello I Love You and we know how that experience turned outThis book is much harder for me to expound on its problems because there are two issues plaguing the better part of this narrative the way it portrays the school shooting and the way it portrays its respective characters on an individual level as well as for the measure of including diversityI m going to start with the school shooting aspect of the narrative because that s the easiest one for me to point out the problems for This is Where It Ends is an ambitious narrative narrating from the perspectives of several teens who are caught in the crossfire of a student Tyler who returns to school to enact revenge on his student body for not being seen this is a very terse summary of it but truth be told Tyler has very little motivation and this I ll get into when I talk about the characterizations It s weird how this narrative chose to tell all of its respective conflicts without much suspense or development I felt like I was never immersed in the environment of the school or the students experiences like I was talked at for the entire time of how much potential or possibilities these teens had before this madman of a character barges in with a gun and starts shooting It s an all or none scenario and not only unrealistic but it skirts the complexity of the situation for what actually happens in real lifeThis book was emotionally manipulative because it was telling me what to think or feel about the scenario instead of allowing me an eye into the character s minds and experiences of the peril they were in Same with trying to understand WHY Tyler snapped the way he did I don t think the deaths were even that resonant because I never got to know the characters or their relationships beyond very jagged inserts that seemed to weave in and out of the narrative without any consistency for portrayal That made it very hard for me to hold interest in the narrative and made the 54 minute ordeal drag out for much time than it should ve That s the downside of using a timeline and head hopping between characters with very generous overlap and similar voicing Plus when Tyler s described in the killing of his student body the portrayal is very mechanical I get that Tyler s actions are mechanical that he s numb because of a number of different things abuse loss neglect but does the PORTRAYAL have to be mechanical This is where I think Nijkamp messed that up because it didn t have to be The scenario could ve had weight if it d been intimate to the character experiences The problem was that there was NO intimacy with the characters and an odd distance that prevailed in the narrative the entire time It s talking at you not showing you Big no no in this type of narrativeTyler s character was just completely bland for motivation to begin with and I had a hard time believing that he was anything but a bad guy from the fact that people somehow automatically knew the one shooting up the school was him to view spoiler him sexually assaulting a girl hide spoiler
