With the advent of the term “fake news” I have been wondering where do we draw the line. What’s real…..what’s not real? Who can you trust and you can’t you trust? Is there line where the news is publishable and or not publishable? What is true and what isn’t true? Bury the Lead explores this issue in a new and unsettling way.
Summary: A newspaper editor begins a social experiment using his newspaper and embedded advertising.
What I liked: After finishing Bury the Lead I had a deep and unsettling feeling in the pit of my stomach. Just like a thriller should. Windwalker’s writing delivers this unsettling feeling with flair and style. Her writing is witty and biting. The storyline was pertinent to what is going on in society today. The ending was deliciously dark and left me scratching my head. I loved that the ending wasn’t laid out on a silver platter. It left a bit to my imagination and with a surreal feeling which was perfect for what I wanted.
What I didn’t like: Nothing there was nothing I didn’t like about Bury the Lead.
Star Rating: 5
My thoughts: I finished this quickly but I wanted to really to sit back and think about this story. And it has been a few days and I am still thinking about this book.
