Book Review: One Child

So the story concludes…

If you weren't a part of this groundbreaking literary event, you missed one heck of a story - but wait - you can still read it online, all of the chapters are now revealed. So in that case, I guess I can't tell you what happened...

Did Halima escape the war and poverty of Afghanistan for a better life?

Did these soldiers survive all the attacks and IEDs?

Did the U2 concert go off as planned or was there a bomb in this tunnel under the stadium?

Can one child really make a difference in this world?

I read some of this story online as it was released daily, and then read the rest in book form. To compare the two experiences - surprisingly I liked the online version better. The anticipation of the daily dose of story (yes, everyone has time to stop for 5 minutes to read a little) along with the interactive links to the characters and locations was awesome!

I couldn't agree more. I enjoyed the online experience so much that I resisted the advance reader copy sitting on my bookshelf, taunting me. Highly recommended!
