This is a long book without sufficient plot to sustain its length. I could have chopped 50-75 pages out of this book without changing the book one bit. It is also loaded with characters and it takes a while to get them all straight in your mind.

Having voiced those minor criticisms, it is a very good read with a really different story line. Plus, it was offered free for the Kindle as an introduction to Mr. Flynn's writing. He has written better books but I don't think anyone will be disappointed if this is their first read of his.

This is probably the best free book I've gotten from Amazon. It's well-written and the plot twists are great. The characters are a little flat - or do I mean undeveloped? - but I was so caught up in the plot I didn't really notice and, frankly, it wouldn't have been the same book with more emphasis on character development. I liked it very much.

This story was way too long and had several many-page boring parts that I basically skimmed over and skipped. I decided about three times I was not going to finish reading this story, but continued to read after taking a break to read several other stories, only because I cannot leave a story unfinished, it conflicts with my OCD.

This story could have been told in about 1/4 the length and been just as, if not more, effective. The premise of the story is good and very unique, but the climax that is built up to throughout the story is kind of anti-climactic when you get there. The author seems to have a good grasp of the English language and can spell (a refreshing change), but just seems to add a lot of filler into the story that doesn't add a lot of detail.

I didn't appreciate the digs towards the end of the story about Republicans and gun owners. I'm not sure if this was an intentional agenda or just the author's personal politics creeping into the story.

Mr. Flynn, leave out the politics and gun views, shorten it up, and I will read more of your stuff. But if this is your way to push your politics (no matter the view, I don't pick sides), forget it, I'm out. There is enough politics in the news every day, no matter who you watch, and I read fiction to take a little break from it.

This is my first experience with Joseph Flynn and I would have to say that it was satisfying and that I will add him to my "To Read" list. I did find the plot overly complex and the list of characters a bit too long, but I managed to keep going and enjoyed the various twists and machinations. The ending may have been a little underwhelming and simplistic but overall, a worthwhile read. I'm not sure if the protagonist will show up in Mr. Flynn's other books but it might be interesting to follow his career and character development.

This book has an unusual storyline with many twists and turns. It starts out as a basic mystery of a school receiving all sorts of odd mail, but then we get the point of view of the "comers" and find things in this town are much more complex then we first thought.

The business of college is cut-throat. From the politics of admission to the benign dictatorship of the college president, Shepherdton College is muscling its way into the big leagues - a boutique school with the prestige of an Ivy.

But somewhere along the way Shepherdton's exclusivity and obsession with only admitting the right sort of student angered the wrong people. And their next step was foreshadowed by the appearance of hundreds of envelopes bearing the phrase, "Still coming."

The idea for this story was the most unique I have ever read. I have to say, the very idea of an army of rejected college applicants threatening to converge on the campus that refused them in the first place is terrifying. High school over-achievers do not suffer failure, it isn't hard to imagine them snapping and demanding justice.

There are many twists to the story, and not everyone is what they first seem. In fact, only the college president seems to present the same face throughout the book. This is in perfect keeping with her character.

The only real quibble I have with it is the way the peeping tom story line wrapped up - it was too neat and rather anticlimactic. Since that wasn't the major plotline in the book, it wasn't an irritation - more like a wish for more.

And really, that is what makes someone a good author - when they make you wish for more.

I got this book for free, but it was definitely something I would have paid for.

It's much longer than it needed to be, and really started to drag. Many of the characters were too consistently glib to be believable. But overall, it was an enjoyable read, especially at the price.

Wow, what a crazy and unique concept. A super-selective small liberal arts college receives a variety of threats from a group of students who were not accepted. Are these students already on campus? What did the school president do that was so bad? What will the big finale be? These questions and more were all running through my mind throughout most of the novel and while some were answered just over a third of the way into the book, others were not answered until the very end. I was really impressed with Flynn's ability to carry out a thriller in which the main characters were truly fleshed out people the reader actually cared about...or in Dula's case, really hated! Despite the book's frightening cover art, this novel is mostly quite light hearted in a sense, although the emotions felt by the rejected students are certainly palpable. There is a sub-plot that threw me off for a while, but as the book progressed, I saw why it was a necessary part of the story. The only criticism I have is that the chapters are WAY too long at times, but maybe that's just me. When chapters are shorter I find it much easier to get hooked into a book thinking, "Oh I'll just read one more chapter." But with some of these chapters being some 30 or more pages long, that wasn't really possible. Regardless though, it still managed to be quite a page turner most of the time.
