BREAKING AND ENTERING is set in 1995, around the same time McVeigh and his cohorts bomb the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. Pollack's crisply written story is told from multiple perspectives, giving us insight into how her many characters see the world around them, but also leaving us a little lost in trying to figure out whom to trust. That, of course, is the point. It's not easy to figure out whom to trust in this world or ours. Do we judge people by the company they keep, by the books they read, by the WWJD bracelets they wear, by how tolerant they are (or aren't) of people who believe different things? Are the people the Shapiros meet dangerous . . . or just different? Can you always tell when someone is a monster, or can banality be deceiving?Read more ›
I liked the writing and the way the author crafted the story. She clearly has a gift with words. In the end, however, there was a paucity of likable characters--and those are critical for me to really get into a book. I want to care about what happens to the people in it. The most sympathetic characters, in the end, are the ones that seemed least worthy in the beginning of the story. Maybe that's the gift of Pollack's writing and I'm not appreciating that sufficiently.
I do recommend this book as an eye-opening if chilling insight into the kind of people drawn to militia movements. The "bad guys" are not cartoon villains.
