    Who am I? My name is Christy Snow. I'm 17 and I'm about to die. I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete. No one knows where I am. My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me. I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking. Some will say that I'm not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave.

    Story
    What was most disappointing about Ted Dekker’s story?

    This plot and the constant repetition of phrases and shifts in time and settings teamed together to make the experience a complete waste.

    Jeanette Garland, missing Castleford, July 1969. Susan Ridyard, missing Rochdale, March 1972. Claire Kemplay, missing Morley, since yesterday. It’s winter, 1974, Yorkshire, Christmas bombs, Lord Lucan on the run, the Bay City Rollers, and Eddie Dunford’s got the job he wanted – crime correspondent for the Yorkshire Evening Post. He didn’t know it was going to be a season in hell. A dead little girl with a swan’s wings stitched into her back. A gypsy camp in a ring of fire. Corruption everywhere you look.

    Lori says: "Disturbing, Uncomfortable - Real Crime Fiction"
    "Mistaken Identity"
    Overall

    Usually when I drive to and from work, the audiobooks from Audible make the drive more bearable. Not the case with "Nineteen Seventy-Four" By David Peace. The prose is so peppered with 'the f bomb' that one thinks one is listening to yet another C-minus mind trying to impress us with his ability to be vulgar. The plot twists and turns its way through themes of brutality and retaliations; the protagonist is bashed, battered and manipulated by everyone around him; and if he does have a clear goal for his struggles, the author fails to clarify or convey what that might be. The mistake here is that Audible identified this as something worth listening to, instead of just letting us know that this work is little more than trash.
