That, from my reading of All for One, is the essence of this wonderfully written and tragic tale of six children and their teacher caught up in the mystery of the death of a classmate. As you follow the course of this tale from their simple decision made at the beginning through the intricate web of its consequences, you too will find yourself drawn into it as I was. Each of the characters has his own story. Each is constructed by Pearson with a depth of detail that I found captivating. And each, as you will discover, is both intriguing and heartbreaking.
I was told before reading this book that it was "dark." As descriptive of a complex human tragedy, that is exactly what this story is. As such, you must be willing accept that there are dark places in the human soul, places that most would turn away from rather than glimpse. You must be willing to walk the path of fear and darkness to its end. And you must be willing to stand at the precipice and watch its conclusion with eyes wide open. If you are so willing, be not afraid, you will find yourself having read a truly wonderful book. When I have read a story of this power, I am left with but two words for the author. Thank you.
As one of the reviewers pointed out, ALL FOR ONE is in part a story about choices, choices we have to make, sometimes under pressure, and how these choices have results that determine the rest of our lives. It deals with psychologically complex and flawed human beings. It is also a story about childhood abuse, injustice, and about good people who try their best and sometimes succeed and sometimes fail.
ALL FOR ONE is one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in quite a while. The characters are convincing and portrayed with great sensibility. A fast-paced and well-crafted mystery, it leads the reader through a maze of events and flashbacks and unexpected twists to an amazing surprise ending. However, is not one of those contrived surprise endings of less successful thrillers. This ending, as unexpected as it is, is foreshadowed and makes total sense in retrospect.
Highly recommended. I look forward to more of the same author
The only thing that prevents me from a 5 star rating: the silly errors that should have been caught by a good proofreader before publication (I noted 14 while not looking for them. How many others did I pass over with just an eyeroll?). My son (Richard Veysey) is a writer and I read everything he sends me several times, including aloud, trying to catch the slightest error. We may never reach perfection but it should always be our goal.
Though it seems to be rampant, this problem is not confined to e-books. Several years ago, long before the kindle, I had to stop reading one of my otherwise favorite authors because his books had so many errors they became distracting and annoying and frustrating, especially since we had not waited for the paperback; we'd shelled out the $25 or so for the hardcover as soon as it was available at our local bookstore. Halfway through the last one I read I sent a message to the author via his website but had no response. If it meant so little to him, as the author, to get it right, I decided I did not need to support his work. Please, authors, show some pride in your product and respect for your readers. Don't put out just anything. Get it right.

The book was pretty good. It did have twists, but I was able to guess where it was headed anyway. Entertaining enough that I finished it. But not so great that I want to read more.Published 7 months ago by michelle b
