I don’t even know where to start with this book. Honestly, it was a trainwreck. If this hadn’t been my Random Reads book for the month I would have quite reading after the first chapter. Determined to finish, I gritted my teeth and forged on. I knew things weren’t going to get better as the story progressed because my issue was with the writing and the writing alone.

I usually don’t like to talk bad about an author’s writing in particular because I know that it takes A TON of work to write a book and I don’t want to seem like I’m criticizing the person and not the book. In this particular situation however, I really don’t know how to talk about why I didn’t like the book if I don’t talk about the writing.

One of the main lessons in writing is show don’t tell. All this book did was tell. There was no emotion, not once did I see what the character was seeing or feel what they were feeling. Things as simple as sounds were written out; bang, clink, slam. Even emotions were written out like, “Giggle, giggle giggle!” or “Sob, sob, sob!” And everything was always in sets of three like that, which got very irritating after the first dozen or so times.

The “big action” scenes were so anti-climactic, the tension stripped away by telling us to death. For example:

“My arms lashed out against the moving target. Kick, kick, kick! How long could I last? The knife, the knife, the knife! This way, that way, glinting in the sun. Close and closer. Closer- he’s going for my neck! ‘AAAAAAHH!’ I CAN‘T SEE IT! ‘AAAAAAAAAA-’ CUT!”

The main character, Liza, is supposed to be sixteen or seventeen yet she comes across as an immature, whiny, child. Her thought process was so naive and unbelievable for a teenager. Her dad even called her “little one” all the time.

Don’t even get me started on the witness protection program side of things and how utterly unbelievable it all was.

I could go on for awhile pointing out all the things that bothered me, but I think you get the picture of how much I disliked this book. ( )

If you ever wondered whats it like to be suddenly put under the Witness Protection Program, look no further than this book. This book amazed me from start to finish. Why? It has great technique in the writing style that you felt like you were on the run. My heart raced as I read this book. I felt emotions, just like the character. And even after finished reading the book, I think I might change my appearance! LOL

What I liked most about this book is the writing style. Ms. Shaw did an absolutely great job in hooking the reader from the very first line. What's even better is that she kept me on my toes, thinking to ever bit that I had read,"What did this girl witness?" Even as the reader, you are left clueless as to what she saw. The main character, Liza, is pulled from the life she knows and into a life of running. She must drop everything. School, friends, relatives, phones, her appearance down to what she orders to eat, had to be change.

I loved the mystery of this book. As I continued to read, I thought I be able to crack what really happen. Liza herself, didn't even know what she saw till it came together in the end. I was in shock and thought, Wow. Such a small incident, in which she didn't even realize what is going on, change her entire life.

You need to read this book. I can't express enough how much I looked over my shoulder and even had to takes breaks. My heart broke for Liza. So much change, in so little time. Amazing writing, amazing characters and one heck of a story line, Tunnel Vision is my favorite book this year. I have never been so taken back and surprised by a book. Simply fantastic! ( )

This book held my attention. I hated when I had to stop. You know how it is, someone has to fix dinner. I felt so sorry for the main character in this story. Her whole life and that of her father’s had been turned upside down. I just couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be on the run and know you couldn’t trust anyone. I wondered how they were constantly found by the bad guys. Part of it is explained but part of it leaves you hanging. However, that would be the way it would really happen if you were in the witness protection program. You wouldn’t know how the bad guys found you most of the time, especially if you managed to escape to live another day. This was a great book and one I definitely want to have on my shelves at school. This is one I’ll recommend to my students. The actions just keeps building to the point you can’t put it down and it becomes a very quick read. I look forward to reading more by this author. ( )
