Characters Ô The Last Minute Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Eleanor Updale Î 2 Read & download Free read The Last Minute 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 Vania ve read though I m sure it won t be my last She s certainly caught my attention with this one
