And with so much of us caught up in the maelstrom of social media these days, who’s to say one of us won’t be its next victim?
There was a way, I thought, in which the plot line for the story—our death row inmate’s determined desire to up his internet following, that ultimately gets him into so much trouble—sets up a parody of our entire culture, not just the internet obsessed. Working in the corporate and business world you’ll find yourself constantly challenged to do better, too, to take your game to the next level. Continuous improvement is the name of the game to stay ahead of global competition. That’s the mantra, and we all know it. And on the surface it sounds like something we should all be doing. Any craftsman is proud of their perfectionism. But at what point does trying to top yourself become an invitation to self-destruction rather than self-betterment? Maybe that’s a question we should all be asking. If you don’t agree, maybe you will after you read the book.
If I were a parent, I’d probably want my kids to read this story during their teen years, when they’re most impressionable, in hopes of getting them to come to some of the realizations the man on death row is never able to come to himself. It’d be a great novel to discuss around the table at home, probably as much as it would be in the classroom in a high school lit class.
His motives and deeds totally disgusting.....a total waste of humanity. Chas D is one of the worst fictional characters I have ever read. Their are despicable people in the world but this guy is maybe the worst.
Upon reflection, bringing out this vile in me for this character is a testament to Steven's writing. I hated the character probably because of Steven's gift as an author, if that makes any sense.
This story was so well crafted, it's characters developed and real and the arrangement of time and story details help lead the reader through the unbelievable life that was Chaz D. The reactions of Ms. Pearson were so real. Throughout this read I was on such an emotional ride that was as if I was part of this story in real Life, in real time. It was an emotion "bull ride", I am wrung out. I have participated in this, not just read it.
