Book Review of Euthanasia

Book Review of Euthanasia
Sponsored by Pump up Your Books 

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share my review of this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.

Blurb : 
When Alex left the clinic that day, she thought she could move on from the rape that left her pregnant and the agonizing decision to have an abortion. That is, until the child she thought she left behind contacts her. Terrorized by mysterious phone calls and guilt, Alex feels her sanity slipping away as she becomes convinced that she must find the man who brutalized her to make a family for her dead daughter.
Anti-abortion crusader Tobin Bartell wouldn’t have it any other way. As The Leader of The Movement, when he’s not organizing protests or giving speeches, he’s orchestrating a campaign of harassment against women like Alex…and plotting to kill the local abortion doctor.
And Tobin has no shortage of candidates for the job: Paige wants money, Courtney wants love, Derek wants to belong. Tobin just wants it done…and it doesn’t matter to him who does it.
Life. Death. Murder. It’s all the same to them.

Mack Mulluncey considered writing a traditional bio, then she remembered no one really cares.

Book Review:

            This book was difficult to read on many levels.  It is about the abortion issue, which is so difficult and caustic for so many.  But more than that, it is about the evil that lives in the hearts of man.  This story is told in a disjointed manner, jumping from character to character, with the point of view shifting as the characters change.   This tangled web is very effective for telling this story as it fits the tangled emotions and frustration laced through the story.

            This is a book that everyone, on both sides of the abortion issue, should read because it effectively tells both sides of the story and the raw pain and emotion that exist on both sides.  However, emotionally it is very, very hard to read.  I strongly recommend that all older teens (at the very least college age) students read this book to understand the emotional baggage that comes with the whole abortion issue on both sides of the equation.

            I give this book a 4 out of 5 because while it was difficult reading emotionally and somewhat literary-wise, it was also powerfully evocative and life changing.
