Joan will do anything to protect her son. As they are leaving the zoo, she begins to hear loud popping sounds. The next three hours is agonizing as she tries to hide her son from the deathly threat.
I have been hearing a lot about this book for months now. I have seen it on lots of most anticipated list, booktube, and on goodreads.
So I had pretty high hopes from this book and for the most part it delivered.
I absolutely loved Joan's relationship with her four year old son. She was so patient and caring. She was so determined to keep her son safe at all cost that she had to make some very tough decisions.
I was really surprised that we got to see so many other people's POVs. We got to learn about someone else trapped in the park and the person behind the shootings.
My only complaint was that there wasn't enough tension. The book is told in flashbacks and cutting to different people and having time jobs. That really broke down all of the tension for me. There were very few moments that had me at the edge of my seat.
For a thriller I thought it was a little underwhelming, but I did love Joan and her son.
I gave this book a C.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
