The Life We Bury
The Life We Bury | Allen Eskens
College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran--and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home, after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder. As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws himself into uncovering the truth, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a haunting childhood memory. Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of Carls conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before its too late to escape the fallout? From the Trade Paperback edition.

Dark and intense. A school project brings a young college student to the bedside of a convicted murderer for a dying declaration. But will the college student need to make one of his own? The writing is serviceable, the characters are fine but it is the plot that shines.

Yay! I used this for #soldiersstory for #booked2019 (which is perhaps a bit of a stretch, but it is part of the story), so I have finally completed #booked2019!!
This book was okay. A quick read but predictable and the pacing felt off. I liked the premise but It turned into a definite “dude bro” book about halfway through where the MC started physically fighting people and fending off potential murders left and right.

4thhouseontheleft A bit of a stretch is just fine...congrats on finishing #booked2019! 🎉👏🏼 1mo

This book tells the story of a 21 year old college student with an alcoholic mother and an autistic brother. He moves 2 hours away to go to school and must write the memoir of an elderly person for his English class. He goes to a nursing home and is paired with a paroled convict who was sentenced to life in prison for raping and murdering a 14 year old girl, and was released when he needs palliative care because of pancreatic cancer.

I liked it! Compelling story, kept me interested the entire way.
BUT, the convenient use of lack of police procedure and the FBI being “too busy” to help solve a rape and murder of a teenager made me 🙄
Nevertheless, a good audiobook

This is EXACTLY what I was in the mood for reading—a novel that is page-turning with short chapters and compelling writing. I never heard of this author before, but I found this book in my own #LittleFreeLibrary from an anonymous donor. Many thanks!

It's been a while since I've done a monthly recap, but this was a particularly good month for me so I couldn't help it! I was all about romance and thrillers this month, and my new Kindle is the real MVP. I can't even tell you how big a difference it makes to read library e-books on it and I've also been pleasantly surprised with my Kindle Unlimited finds. Here's hoping April is just as filled with quality reading time! 😄

I had never heard of this book or author, but was browsing Libby and the blurb really caught my attention. I was HOOKED from the first chapter, stayed up way too late last night reading "one more chapter", and then missed my subway stop this morning bc I was so absorbed. I'm blown away by how much I enjoyed this "on a whim" find! Excellent, suspenseful writing, and I loved the characters. I've already checked out three more of Eskens' books ?

I kept reading until the end, but I found the resolution and the twists to be predictable, and some plot elements to be stereotypical. If you don‘t read thrillers and mystery books very often, try it out. If you read a lot of them, pass.

This book was so good! As a debut novel, it is 20x better than a novel I read recently that was probably that author's 20th novel. The characters were real - fully developed with flaws, fears and all. The story about a Vietnam Vet who was convicted of murder - but did he do it? - really drew me in. The suspense was real and the ending was most satisfying. Looking forward to more of this author's work.

I liked this book. A LOT. It was everything I enjoy. Good writing, interesting and compelling story, great characters, mystery, conflict...all of it. Then the last 100 pages happened and it went off the rails into superfluous nonsense and too much story and trying way too hard to be action packed and just way too hard in general. It did calm itself down for the last 10 pages or so, which was nice. I still wound up liking it but not loving the book
