Synopsis: ‘Everybody likes Chris Goodman. Sure, he's a little odd. He wears those funny bell-bottoms and he really likes the word ennui and he shakes your hand when he meets you, but he's also the kind of guy who's always up for a good time, always happy to lend a hand. Everybody likes Chris Goodman, which makes it especially shocking when he's murdered.
Here, in a stunning multi-voiced narrative -- including the perspective of the fifteen-year-old killer -- and based on a true and terrible crime that occurred when he was in high school, author Allan Wolf sets out to answer the first question that comes to mind in moments of unthinkable tragedy: how could a thing like this happen?’
This was a very interesting book to read. It is based on a true story. Something that happened to the author, Allan Wolf, when he was a teenager. It is a fast paced story and easy to read, but by no means without depth and meaning.
It is interesting as well in how the author narrates this story. It is first person (not usually my favourite), but first person for all the main characters in the story. Each main character has their own voice and becomes the narrator. This means some very short compelling paragraphs, making the story move along quite quickly.
For something different in the crime genre, give this book a read.
