Mini review originally posted on Nightjar s Jar of BooksOne minute life in Heathwick was completely normal with the exception of some extremely inconvenient roadworks causing a massive traffic jam on the main road the next minute it was not A massive explosion kills sixty five people and injures dozens and speculation as to its origins run rampant This book is a countdown second by second of the lives of the people in Heathwick in the minute leading up to the explosion showing us snapshots of a few or in many cases the last seconds of their livesThere are a lot of people in this book A young mother expecting her second child a worker in a caf a politician who s cheating on his wife a reluctant teacher supervising a school trip and so on Many of them don t really stand out all that much and in fact I can t even remember a lot of their names but there were a couple that I enjoyed reading about In particular I liked Deanna and Paul the young lovers as well as the retired actress Lotte I also eventually grew uite fond of Matey a homeless man who likes to tell stories and I would ve liked to have heard the punchline of his very long jokeThe huge cast of characters and the second by second format also provide the book s greatest flaw though It s uite difficult to follow everything that s going on This many different mostly unrelated storylines are a lot to keep track of and the confusion isn t helped by the fact that the story is divided up by time rather than by plotline so we jump between different characters rapidly often switching scenes mid sentenceOn the other hand this format really increased the dramatic tension It didn t help me to connect with any of the characters but it really emphasised how uickly time was running out for them Individually none of the storylines were all that interesting and the book probably would ve been uite boring if it had followed each character up to the explosion and then gone back and started again with someone else Instead what this book delivers is a really great sense of the town itself as a character with its various different parts all contributing to a bigger wholeOne last note I don t know if this is Updale s doing or her publisher s David Fickling Books but the maps in this book are genius There s one at the beginning that shows the layout of Heathwick High Street which isn t that extraordinary but it s shown again at the end of the book with little person shaped markers for everyone who died It s pretty harrowing uizmas of Heathwick had been preparing for Christmas unaware that many would die and the rest would be transformed for ever Travel with them second by second through the hopes fears l.

The Last Minute Download Ý 108 921am business as usual on a high street in England922am the explosions are heard for miles around and in the early confusion there is talk of a gas leak a plane crash and even terrorism. 2013 seems to be the year for shocking contemporary novels that come out of nowhere grab the reader by the lapels and refuse to let go until we re all inanely babbling to everybody within the surrounding area that YOU HAVE TO READ THIS The Last Minute is one of the first books I read in 2013 and even though it s taken me a while to get my thoughts straight enough to write a review I still remember the details like I read it yesterday This is simply put one of the most incredible books I ve ever readThe premise and structure of this novel are both uniue and these factors alone are enough to keep interest up from beginning to end but when you add in a fantastic cast of characters distinctive voices and accomplished writing you get something that feels really really special I m genuinely excited by this book and I know I ll be recommending it for a long long time to come It has absolute crossover appeal and think boys girls men and women will love it it s a tricky one to categorise because I don t think it really fits the conventions of an adult or a YA novel But then I think some of the greatest novels out there appeal to everybody and are difficult to pin downOne of the strengths of The Last Minute is how much freedom the author gives the reader to make their own decisions about key elements in the story We start the book knowing there has been a devastating explosion on a high street in the small UK town of Heathwick situated close to one of the country s main airports no prizes for guessing how the name came about Often I think knowing the ending of a book at the beginning can detract from the enjoyment as there are no stakes but when we know the outcome is devastating it just makes for an even gripping read It was in the back of my mind the whole time I was reading this one that something terrible was going to happen to the characters I was bonding it I didn t know who would survive the explosion or what would cause it I just knew it would happen I had favourite characters I was rooting for from the outset and Eleanor Updale did an amazing job of building up likable complex characters through hardly any page time As I said before the amount of characters involved is huge but I didn t find myself getting confused by who each chapter focused on simply because the voice of each character and their stories were so distinctiveThroughout The Last Minute there are major clues about a host of different disasters that could cause the explosion on Heathwick s main street Some are clearly major incidents but then there are a few low key accidents that are subtly hinted at I loved trying to figure out what was going to cause the explosion and I did find myself horribly aware that there was some major stereotyping going on with the premature conclusions I came too It s not good but I m going to hold my hands up and be honest I do think the author must have been trying to prove a point with this and I m hoping a lot of readers made the same initial judgements as me otherwise I just feel bad as a personThe climax of The Last Minute is staggering I knew what was coming I knew the seconds were ticking away but nothing could prepare me for the final pages of the book The fact I knew the ending before I started and it still shocked me that s a serious feat right there After I finished the book I had to sit and process it before I could move on to read anything else I was in complete shock there was so much I needed to get straight in my head and I still think about this one all the time It s a book that will truly linger with youI m going to keep this last bit vague but I will say that there is a great deal of extra content with The Last Minute I m a huge huge fan of extra content and what you can discover about The Last Minute after reading the book is some of the best I ve ever seen Mixed media online content and additional information in the book is all present and the audience is truly left to draw their own conclusions which I loved The amount of work that must have gone into both writing The Last Minute and preparing the campaign for it is staggering and I
