Shattering by J.D Evies
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Not for me this one I'm afraid. I think perhaps the category was misleading as this was placed in "Thriller"
While the thought and subject of the story may be tense, I certainly would not call it a thriller.
Perhaps more "political fiction" or something similar to that.
The writing itself while quite good at times also felt a bit pretentious. As if the writer maybe thought his readers are possibly beneath him and wouldn't fully understand his point. (as follows the subject of the story).
The idea itself is very true to life and very frightening, I just think that it wasn't portrayed quite as well as it could have been.
