I enjoyed this tale but didn't enjoy the feeling of being ripped off once I realized the information about the author was a load and the story was linked to the tv series Lost. Oh well, so much for not being plugged into the tv age.
I finished this book and found the reading experience to be very satisfying and engrossing, overall. However I was disappointed with the ending. It was interesting how the hostages and terrorists formed their unions and alliances but the ending didn't work for me. I can't go into the 'why' without giving away information on the story though.
Well-written but not for me as it was hard to keep my train of thought and follow the narration; partly because of the use of pronouns when too many relations of the same sex were being referred to and partly because of the subject line and the underlying questions being asked not holding enough interest for me.
This was a well-written historical novel set in Buffalo, New York during the early 1900s and revolved around the story of the building of the Niagara Falls power station and the life of Louisa Barrett, headmistress of a prestigious girls school.
