Nk what really hit home for me was the last page With nothing but the simple Synopsis And Emily S Wonderful and Emily s wonderful I was sold But the message that failed to hit home before I picked this up was that this is ableak and depressing novel Don t get me wrong it s utter brilliance distilled and POURED INTO 140 PAGES OR SO BUT THE HONESTY into 140 pages or so but the honesty which it s written will reduce anyone to tears If you re anything like me always hoping for a better outcome in any situation an The world is the meeting place of the strange This is a really positive review with a small caveat the price for this book needs to come down or they need to start getting it in libraries because 12 to read a novella even in ebook format is crazy Apr 8 2016Anyway now I ve finished bitching I m going to talk about how great this story is It s a short powerful emotive read about the twelve hours before a Danish boy is due to be executed He sits in his ail cell with a fly as his only companion reminiscing about his life with his father poor and often homeless but The Last Execution is not ust a book about the boy in uestionAs we soon find out there are many people *Involved In Niel S *in Niel s from the carpenter who will make his coffin to the baker who will serve bread to those coming to watch to the poet who will record the events It s a chilling tale about the whole town and the vast array of emotions experienced everything from sadness and pity to excitement and enthusiasmThe boy s guilt of the crime is never really in uestion but it is given context which makes it hard not to side with Niels regardless The book acts as a criticism of society and its failures to the lower poorer classes and also shows the way people are uick to rally around and enjoy another s misfortune As Kirkus said the carefully paced reveals of the specific circumstances leading up to the fatal incident ultimately suggest Niels greatest crime might simply have been povertyBy opening each chapter in the dark simplicity of Niel s cell and reminding the reader how long is remaining until the execution the atmosphere is one of impending doom and the suspense is perfect I really enjoyed the format of the storytelling the gradual reveals and the wide scope of such a small novel incorporating the perspectives of many charactersA hard hitting and memorable little bookBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Stor.

Dang It s sad to think how public executions use to be Like a free for all showing This was beautifully written and gave voice to even a badly broken and *BEATEN FIST I LOVE THE LANGUAGE *fist I love the language the emotion it conveyed Not a bad little read This was a very uick read but I did not get much out of it I did not know going into this book that it was based on a true execution in Denmark but I still felt no emotional connection to any of the characters I Suppose There Was
suppose there was enough pages to get to fully understand the characters I do think that this book did have some wonderful passages and outlooks on life so that is why it is receiving a three star It s nearing the end of o levels so I had the chance to read this book and I ve got to say it s such a heartwarming book It s about a 15 year old boy who s to be executed which sounds so heartbreaking But after reading the story I guess it didn t feel so sad It s because we get a glimpse of his thoughts and feelings Also we get the perspectives of other people in the town about the execution However it wasn t as emotionally impactful as I hoped it would be so the 4 stars The moment you let go of the stone it s too late to change your mind But if you don t say or do something it is also too late I purchased this book because I ve found that for me it s always those under two hundred page books that pack a punch that longer books usually aren t able to reach This book didn t disappoint at all It caused me to be transported to Denmark in the 1800s I was in the cell with Niels It s so atmospheric Because the setting is for the most part in a cell with a fly and a dog outside everything was crystal clear as to what was going on However the story does switch out of the prison cell occasionally There are flashbacks about Niel and his father and their struggle to find food and a place to stay the night It was bittersweet because I loved their connection but his father s spiral from strong to crippled is heart wrenchingThe is very successful too Although it is told Niel s point of view a lot of the time there are also other townspeople There is the baker the carpenter the messenger the mayor the priest and the executioner They all have very differing views on the execution of this fifteen year old book Some are excited hoping for an increase in money from this some have conflicting emotio. In twelve hours a fifteen year old boy will be be executed on Gallows HillThe master carpenter comes to measure Niels for his coffinThe master baker bakes bread for the spectatorsThe messenger posts the notice of execution in Ns and some are pretty torn up about it It was so interesting to see "how everyone felt about this and it was brilliant for Wung Sung to "
everyone felt about this and it was brilliant for Wung Sung to to narrate like thisThere were so many themes that I never read about There was the struggles of the lower class the corruption of government the greediness of business owners I loved reading about all of these things as saddening and aggravating they all are It was like a breath of fresh air in this cliche world of YAI loved basically everything about this book It was *hard to believe that this is based
this cliche world of YAI loved basically everything about this book It was *hard to believe that this is based a true story The hill *to believe that this is based on a true story The hill the boy was executed on now has a bench on it that you can sit and look down on the town Horrific Heartbreaking Definitely pick this up if you re looking for a uick read that will make you think Good for a uick read This was a ready good read It s really short but packed with such emotion and food for thought For such a small book I m in absolute awe of how much it was able to do It s almost hard to put into words this book is of an emotional experience than a story It s really uite depressing the way a father and son are torn out of society because of poverty Niels the main character is such a complex character and yet a simple one too It s mostly what isn t written on the pages that makes him such a great character The way the book is written you can feel his emotion and what he wants to say when he doesn t say anything at all There are times where he sits in silence talking to a fly yet you can understand his thought process As the book goes on the reader starts to uestion what his crime is at all It says it s arson and murder But really you inevitably reach a point where you start to uestion if it was as simple as that Niel s father is wonderfully depicted as well Just a man that never gives up on his principles despite how rough times are you get the sense that he tries to provide and create a life for his boy yet he simply cannot do to his health and circumstancesI highly recommended this novel Dark and deliciously atmospheric this is a moving work Don t let its size confuse you this is for mature readers FuckI have no words I m emotionally drained They say don t udge a book by its cover but the same goes for don t Passing the Louisiana LEAP Grade 8 in Science
