did not like it
bookshelves: biology

A sensationalist piece of shit. Everything in life could be written with "BUT SHE WASN'T THINKING ABOUT WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED!"
DID YOU KNOW that when you drive your kids to school, you could be hit by another car? That would then splatter your kids brains on the pavement yada yada...

Repetitive, same gory details over and over, what happens when you try and take a story where everything went fine and hype it up to where it actually seemed dangerous and exciting.

Well, it wasn't.
