Before the Fall is a thriller – and I don't usually read thrillers. But it is a thriller that I think almost everyone, men and women, will enjoy. The author is also responsible for the series Fargo – and certainly I can see the book becoming a movie soon – if it isn't already.
There is a small plane crash. 2 survivors. But what happened? I won't spoil it for you but there are a number of contemporary themes at work:
· The impact of, and approach taken by cable news
· Rich people living on the edge of the law – or breaking it
· How events early in your life can have significant later impacts
· Conspiracy theories
I hope I haven't put you off at all. There is one chapter at the end of the book which uses egregiously bad language. I think the author thought it was necessary for the character… but? And the cover is not appealing.
