REVIEW Freewill

DOWNLOAD ✓ Freewill One after the other The deaths all have one thing in common beautifully carved wooden tributes that appear just after—or just before—the bodies are found Will's afraid he knows who's responsible for the deaths And lurking just behind that knowledge is another secret one so explosive that he might not be able to face it and survivePart thriller part mystery Chris Lynch's newest book is a rollercoaster ride through a passionate young man'. I wanted to read this book because I was intrigued by its coverYupThere were several things about it that I enjoyed though not enough to outweigh the incredibly heavy feeling of hopelessness that its narrator injects into every sentence and was left clinging to me like a co dependent teenage girl It left me screaming what the heck was the point I hesitate to buy into the thought that this was the author s intent but if it wasgeniusI enjoyed the voice a great deal though not the tone it was too Poey for my taste The use of second person does seem a bit preachy at times but it s fresh enough to keep the reader engaged a task made easier by its thankfully short length I think towards the middle I felt bad enough for the narrator expecting that he suffered from some sort of anxiety or autism or other socio psychological disorder to hope that he would change for the better But by the end of the novel I hated him Thank goodness for Angela whose final appearance in the book summed up my frustrations nicely and granted me at least a small cathartic respite The book was saved from a one star fate by its brief adventure into the moral ground of choice and accountability which was by far my favorite part It is a wonderful albeit much to short meander into the uestion of personal agency will we act or be acted upon In this I felt a fleeting moment of synergy with the authorThat said the book is well written and the author s skill at exploring the psyche of his narrator is evident I d recommend this to anyone looking to experiment with new narrative perspectives or who just gets a jolly kick out of the hopelessly macabreWarningLanguage Thanks for reminding me Lots of f bombs Seemed unnecessary Bugged meSex some vague references not reallyDrugs again references No abuseRock n Roll I don t remember I was too depressed Violence A few death scenes after the fact and a semi strangling

Will the seventeen year old protagonist of Chris Lynch s YA novel Freewill has suffered a horrible tragedy Now he lives with his grandparents who are Kind people They didn t have to take you in Or did they Love Is it love Charity That s the first thing about Freewill it s written in the second person Not many books are and I suspect that many YA readers will wonder what the heck is going on Once Will s circumstances reveal themselves readers will likely be able to figure out why Lynch chose this point of view At the very least it would be an interesting conversation to have with students But second person is a stylistic choice and not everyone grooves to itWill as a character is frustrating and sympathetic He spends most of his time in woodshop where he clearly has some talent He makes furniture and carves little statues which start showing up in advance of the deaths of local students He doesn t have any friends until he meets Angela another misfit in his woodworking class Has she spoken to you before You know her name though don t you Haven t bothered knowing any of the others What s the use after all But you haven t been able to not know AngelaThe novel works as a sort of interior monologue as Will comes to grips with the facts of his life He s stuck in limbo He tells his teacher I m supposed to be a pilot Mr Jacks How did I wind up in woodshop The how reveals itself sort of relatively uickly but Will s mental health is clearly in jeopardy and it will take a while before the whole thing plays outI didn t love this book but that doesn t mean it s without merit Mature patient reads will likely get something from the reading experience
