This was a thought provoking fictional tale that easily could have been nonfiction. The way the media helped shape and stir up people’s emotions was very realistic. I also thought that the author presented all sides fairly. However, there was a real lack of emotion in all the characters that did not warm you up to them. For me to like a book I need to connect to the characters and this book feel flat on that for me. The middle of the book got a bit slow and repetitive too. I am usually a quick reader but this one dragged for me. So although I liked the premise, I found it to be a little long winded and emotionless.
