Book Description

Every year the best colleges reject thousands of the brightest young minds in the country. But what might happen if a large number of them refused to take no for an answer?

One morning, Shepherdton College receives 437 envelopes from twenty-eight states. Each contains the same two-word message: Still coming.

That’s just the beginning. The college president’s house burns down; the water in the country club swimming pool turns red; the ghost of a local war hero appears.

Another message is received: We’re Here.

Nerves fray, and if the “comers” aren’t trouble enough, a Peeping Tom turns into a home invader, and shows signs of becoming a full-blown sexual predator.

The town fragments and people take up arms after one last message is received…

Won’t Be Long Now.

Still Coming is a psychological thriller for anyone, student or parent, who’s ever sweated a college admission decision.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read that should have been shortened up some January 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful premise. January 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good first experience February 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only finished it because I'm persistent April 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Odd, long, but good characterizations May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Reviewing May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillarious June 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The crazy antics in this book are wonderful even if the armed siege gets a little over the top. A couple of plot twists to make sure you are paying attention - a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMNHO! In my not humble opinion, April 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
the featured reviewers on the product opinion page are wrong about the length and character development of "We're Coming." The characters are quite well developed as is the plot and this accounts for the length. Thoroughly entertaining and thought provoking story. Fortunately, Joseph Flynn is a prolific writer; there's more!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
This started out as an OK read but then turned into derogatory cliches about business men, politicians, non democrat voters, the NRA, and school administrators.
