Summary Í eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Eleanor Updale Summary The Last Minute 107 Eleanor Updale ✓ 7 Summary 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 I absolutely loved the way The Last Minute is written it was so completely different to anything I ve ever read before and I found it practically impossible to put the book down It reminded me of the TV series 24 except instead of each episode covering an hour long time period each chapter of the story covers one second of the last minute before an explosion rocks the sleep village high street of Heathwick You know from the prologue that something terrible is going to happen and you re left trying to piece everything together and figure out what causes the disasterI found myself constantly asking myself uestions as I was reading Is that person a terrorist or are they just an innocent person minding their own business Why has that white van just been abandoned in the middle of the high street Why are drivers such morons when there are roadworks Why is that plane passenger refusing to turn off their mobile phone Will the beggar get to the punchline of his joke before the explosion happens Who is going to survive I m not going to answer those uestions for you here but if you read the book you ll find out all of that and so much I will say that it took me a couple of chapters to get into the swing of reading the story you are introduced to a huge number of characters and it took a little while to get everyone straight in my head Some characters have larger roles than others but it doesn t take too long to get a feel for who they all are What I liked most was that everyone was so normal they are everyday people who are just going about their day to day lives with no idea of what is about to happen to them They have the same problems thoughts fears and dreams as the rest of us and although you don t have time to get to know them very well you do become surprisingly invested in their lives In a way it was actually uite scary to think about how normal everything seemed until the explosion hits very few people even noticed anything suspicious going on around them and you re watching from the sidelines with baited breath just trying to put all of the clues togetherThe Last Minute is an edge of your seat read the pacing is fast and you know that with every chapter that passes you re a second closer to disaster I devoured this book very uickly and I m definitely looking forward to reading from Eleanor Updale in the future For anyone who has read the book already you really should make sure you checkout the extra information on Eleanor Updale s website She has created all kinds of newspaper clippings and even an inuiry report to give you information on exactly what caused the explosion and what happened in the aftermath Whatever you do don t look at those extras before you ve read the book though it would completely spoil the story for you if you did

The Last Minute

Summary Í eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Eleanor Updale Summary The Last Minute 107 Eleanor Updale ✓ 7 Summary 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

Eleanor Updale ✓ 7 Summary

Summary Í eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Eleanor Updale Summary The Last Minute 107 Eleanor Updale ✓ 7 Summary 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 Some of these people only have a minute left to liveThe Last Minute takes place in Heathwick town centre before an explosion rips the place apart killing 65 Each second is a gradual build up adding to the tension of the final event What will be the cause of the devastation and who will be its victimsNeedless to say with a death toll of 65 this really is a cast of thousands and you d need to read the book in pretty much one sitting to keep a track of who everyone is This also made it impossible to go into any depth with the characterisations although Ms Updale did manage to produce several characters about whom I was concerned than others and then there were also the two magnificent carriage horsesAt the end of the book is the newspaper reportage of the explosion which was impossible to read on the Kindle but there is an on line site where it is possible to see this This also completes the book by discussing the possible cause of the explosionsFor me this was a clever idea that unfortunately didn t uite work by the time I d read sixty sets of one second events I d lost interest and certainly wasn t getting tense at the inevitable outcome
