a London train Since then he has been seeing a therapist to try and come to terms with his grief and anger, and help him move forward But Michael can t move forward, and maybe he just doesn t want to Michael believes in an eye for an eye, and he s not sure he can rest until he enacts his revenge I was honestly so excited about this book based upon the premise because it sounded really interesting, but honestly I found myself quite disappointed with this book I just really struggled to enjoy the book, and the main character is such an awful person that I could not connect to him in anyway.The plot honestly feels like it drags on we get pages and pages of the same thing, and I honestly think you could just cut out 100 random pages and it wouldn t change the plot in the slightest The main plot itself of Michael s views on who deserves to pay for his wife s death was actually interesting, you could really see him unraveling as the story went on, and you can see him just emerge into a bit of a psychosis It brings out real ethical and moral questions which is good, but it takes so long to actually get to the end and that made it really hard to care about this book I think one of my main problems is that I did not like the main character of Michael in any way There are no redeeming qualities about him and I feel mean saying that considering his wife has been taken from him, but thewe learn about him thedisturbed and angry I became This is a man who abuses his power in every single way He physically assaults his students at school, including burning one with acid WHAT THE HELL Are we meant to still feel sorry for this man when half of them time we are reading about him dragging young boys around, burning them, and threatening them I just completely baffled And the way he treats his daughter as well the assault on her early on in the book really upset me, and the way he just ignores her grief and loss for the rest of the book I m pretty sure at one point he tells her that he loves the parts of her that are like her mother as in he doesn t love her as a person, only the bits that represent his wife What a delightful thing to tell your grieving child If this character waslikeable it would have greatly helped the book, but he just angered me so much and I had to put this book down many a time and just walk away to scream into nothingness I will admit that I do like the format of the book with the diary style of the book BUT I HATED THAT THERE WERE NO PAGE NUMBERS GIVE ME PAGE NUMBERS Honestly overall I just did not like this book and I wouldn t recommend it I would give this book a warning to people who have recently lost someone or are grieving I would recommend giving this book a wide berth Michael, a retired headmaster grieving for his wife, the victim of a terrorist attack, asks himself the question of who is really responsible for what happened, not the bombers themselves, not the bomb makers, but the bomb triggerers , the politician enriching himself from his time in office There s muchto this story than seeking vengeance the narration soon revealsabout Michael s character As he recalls his career Good s skill is in

reader as a cruel authoritarian As an ex teacher of 31 years this is an admirably accurate portrayal of a Headteacher s traits I have seen all too frequently This was such an interesting read right from the very beginning I absolutely loved the format of the book, even if it did take a little while to adjust to it Although the way that Michael felt was completely understandable, it really made me wonder whether or not people could really come up with such an immense and intricate plan of revenge It felt a little extreme to me It was most definitely an interesting thing to read about, and I

hearingabout Michael s wife and seeing why he was so upset Even now, I am still in shock about his wife and how Michael pulled off his ultimate revenge Very good book books without page numbers are

well as psychology etc Plus I really loved the format with all the redacted parts.,But on the flip side, like I said, the format meant there was no page numbers and that really did not help with the

actually skip large sections go to the end, which is why I feel I can t give this a star rating either Maybe I ll give it another go in the future when I m in asuitable mood A very mediocre book one of the worst I have read lately firstly it has no page numbers of anything else to tell you where you are up to just an endless succession of short chapters of mostly one or two pages which one assumes are diary extracts There are also no explanations about author or what the intent was so it is both tedious and hard work to read As it was a gift I persisted and it improved marginally towards the end with some twists and genuine tension in the last few pages How A very mediocre book one of the worst I have read lately firstly it has no page numbers of anything else to tell you

it is both tedious and hard work to read As it was a gift I persisted and it improved marginally towards the end with some twists and genuine tension in the last few pages However all in all it is a poor reading experience none of the characters are likeable and the main character is incredibly narcistic and self obsessed There are some interesting insights into the characteristics of self obsession but that is the best I can say Man understandably overwhelmed with grief and plans to murder the person who he has calculated through his very logical and very ethical abacus to be responsible for the terrorist attack which destroys his life Told through personal reflections to his therapist and written justifications of his thoughts and behaviours, Kill redactedgives us an insight into the mind of a sad, slightly sociopathic ex principal who believes he s smarter than those around him especially the aforementioned Man understandably overwhelmed with grief and plans to

around him especially the aforementioned therapist Can t say I cared for the redacted device, but the rest of the writing is compelling and clear and the characterisation, plot pace, and inevitable ending are pretty darn good As social commentary it s pretty good too Touching on abuse of power by politicians, terrorism, reliance on therapy psychology, changing social norms around schooling, etc I think it gives a good insight into how hard trauma is to deal with and how little society can do to help individuals dealing with it.Gets quite graphic toward the end violence wise, but would defs

DEBUT NOVELS Of The I This book nearly makes 4 stars for me entertaining read about a man driven mad by grief, but already an arrogant, unpleasant bully Putting these together gives a narrator with sharp, black humoured and crazy thoughts on his narrow view of the world Some of the things he did I still don t get, and of course he is a very unlikeable character, but an interesting and different type of thriller. Intense and authentic Kill redacted took my breath away with its intensity and authenticity It is hard to believe that it is a debut novel the prose is confident and accomplished and the plot is cleverly drawn, using several storylines that subtly shift between time frames and carefully come together to create a powerful and poignant ending The main character, Michael, is complex and compelling and his emotionally charged intellectual musings and personal interactions are dark and disturbin Intense and authentic Kill redacted took my breath away with its intensity and authenticity It is hard to believe that it is a debut novel the prose is confident and accomplished and the plot is cleverly drawn, using several storylines that subtly shift between time frames and carefully come together to create a powerful and poignant ending The main character, Michael, is complex and compelling and his emotionally charged intellectual musings and personal interactions are dark and disturbing This book is unlike anything I have read before and it has certainly left a lasting impression on me I am very much looking forward to the author s next book, although I feel Kill redacted is going to be a hard act to follow I won a copy of this book in a Readers First giveaway A really different sort of read.Michael the head teacher of a school, has lost his wife in a terrorist attack on a London underground train Full of anger and his life now in bits he tries, with the help of his therapist Angela, to come to terms with what has happened He makes plans for revenge on those who he feels are responsible for the attack and begins to put this plot into action The book is written in a bit of a mix of styles, including letters and journal entries, the ending was unexpe A really different sort of read.Michael the head teacher of a school, has lost his wife in a terrorist attack on a London underground train Full of anger and his life now in bits he tries, with the help of his therapist Angela, to come to terms with what has happened He makes plans for revenge on those who he feels are responsible for the attack and begins to put this plot into action The book is written in a bit of a mix of styles, including letters and journal entries, the ending was unexpected In some ways I found, this book, a bit eerie especially with the redacted bits, which gives the book a look of a censored document I think the author is very clever to be able to imagine what it must be like to suffer in such a way and the book takes the reader on a journey into the mind of a man who is travelling into madness I reached the end of the book and felt a bit unsure about what I felt about, it may well be that it is just so different to the usual books I read
