An Amazon Best Book of the Month, May 2014: The "facts" are these: four planes crash almost simultaneously in different parts of the world; three children survive, against all reason. When one victim's ominous final voicemail message makes headlines, the religious and out-of-this-world conspiracy theories are abound. Sarah Lotz masters a chorus of distinct character voices as she tells a thrilling, disturbing story in the guise of a nonfiction oral history. The "author" is a character herself, presenting interviews, chat transcripts, book excerpts, and news stories. Lotz commits so fully to each character's perspective that we can never quite determine which is the telling the “truth”--if any. Prepare to be surprised, mesmerized, frustrated, spooked, and utterly entertained. Remind yourself occasionally that it's not real, but maybe play it safe and avoid reading this book on a plane.--Robin A. Rothman

This book is SLOW. So SLOW and so disjointed and very boring in spots I really had to push my way through it. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Angie N.

Lesson learned. I received an ARC of Day Four by Lotz, and decided to read Thee Three first.
I should have read the reviews. I love books that use inventive presentations. Read more
Starts off with an interesting premise, then seems to peter out in the middle, like Lotz had run out of ideas. And the ending...argh! So disappointing. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kathleen Boylan
