The Last Minute characters ã 7 Ove worries gossip cruelty kindness and trivia that dominated their final minute before tragedy struckAnd in the everyday story of an ordinary street look for clues to what happened and w. The Last Minute is at times a hard book to read It tells the story of a uiet high street and its inhabitants going about their everyday lives one minute before a huge explosion changes everything Each chapter is one second of that minute as the countdown nears its grisly end It s sad and is made that much worse because we get to know everyone I loved how The Last Minute was written kind of like the TV show 24 but working in seconds rather than hours A lot happened in those seconds which obviously couldn t have really happened in such a short pinch of time but I like the idea and the format anyway I was apprehensive to get to the end because I knew what was coming right from the beginning This book shows how one minute can change everything and how every action can have a conseuence and can then set off a chain of disastrous events Even though the book is uite short and only covers one minute Eleanor Updale wrote in such a way that by the end I felt like I knew every single person at that high street The inclusion of maps and newspaper articles adds an extra touch of realism and it soon becomes apparent that a tragedy like this could happen anywhereThe Last Minute is a uick read I read it all in one sitting but it isn t by any means an easy one It s poignant and sad and made me want to appreciate every minute of my life It s the first of Eleanor Updale s books I ve read though I m sure it won t be my last She s certainly caught my attention with this one

The Last Minute characters ã 7 The people 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. It was a very interesting premise but not interesting in its execution There were too many characters which meant that there was no character development and no thoughtful observations on said characters and circumstances I found that I would rather be knitting a teapot cosy in the desert The language was very simple perhaps it was meant for children but even then i would hope for elouent phrasing Yet I persisted not wanting to visit the desert on a 48 degree day wanting needing redemption at the end Naturally I knew that there was going to be a devastating explosion by one or of the obvious sources that were unsubtly alluded to but i still hoped for insight any insight None came Predictability was rampant Where are those knitting needles The end

The Last Minute characters ã 7 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. I read this in one sitting If I didn t I would have been totally lost when Matey finally reached the punch line of his jokeThe format and idea are very interesting and unlike any other book I have ever read Based off of a real event or should I say tragic disaster the whole book only covers the time span of one minute At first it was hard to keep the characters straight but Updale s repetition of details that is seemingly redundant is actually very helpful to remember whose storyline we are visitingSo one bone I would like to pick this book is described as a whodunnit But after I had feverishly collected details in my mind and thought over motivations and possible suspects I was actually a bit disappointed in the end And then remembering that it was a real event and than 60 real people actually died I was sad You get to know some of the characters pretty well and then BoomA good read with a somber undertoneRecommended for readers 12
