It's surprising that a story about a suicide bridge was even more thought provoking than I'd expected. Surprising because my expectations were already high, so exceeding them wasn't easy.
The story starts off wonderfully engaging. Just enough details to keep it realistic. It dulls a bit in the middle with far too much conversational exposition for a short story, but the end more than makes up for it.
The ending left me with a tangle of morality questions. There's a lot to think about regarding the martyr's intentions. And about whether or not the ends justify the means. Beyond her ambiguous intentions, the actual ripple effect and potential alternative endings will keep my brain buzzing.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
