Posted at Shelf Inflicted 25 year old Tommy O Brien learns he has terminal cancer and has only a month or so to live He has no health insurance is deep in debt and recently lost his job Desperate for cash and wanting to provide for his wife and son he and two best friends Sherm and John plan to rob a bank The main character is very well drawn his suffering and desperation very real This story accurately portrays depressed US industrial towns and their inhabitants who have lost jobs and are unable to get out of poverty It is a bleak exploration of the finality of death and life s possibilities after learning you don t have much time left Tommy is a very likable character who s easy to connect and empathize with He loves his family deeply and doesn t want to hurt them by telling them he has cancer I wanted him to succeed even though he made a lot of wrong choices His wife and son were interesting characters who could have been developed further I also would have liked about Tommy s feelings concerning his impending death This was an engaging and compelling story that was difficult to put down Once the bank robbery got under way the story became very predictable Tommy s friend John is a little slow but basically a likable guy Sherm was always crazy his dark nature becoming apparent later on in the story Tommy just wanted the money he never intended to hurt or kill anyone Things go wrong and hostages are taken among them an old man with a heart problem a single mother and her son with unusual abilities a nutty religious fanatic and an overweight loner who likes comic booksMost of the hostages were stereotypes and not very well developed especially Martha so I really didn t feel too much when the body count started to rise The most interesting hostage was the little boy with a healing touchReading Terminal is like watching a train wreck in slow motion You just know that nothing good will happen but you can t stay away

Y's future And though his plan will spin shockingly out of control it will throw him together with a child whose touch can heal and whose ultimate lesson is that there are far worse things than dyingA powerful uniue novel with a fascinating plot and characters and echoes of Stephen King's working class voice Ed Gorma. A thriller that initially packs an emotional punch before giving way to typical Keene fair Terminal is a thought provoking exploration of the lengths one everyday man will go to when he is told he has less than a month to live Keene does a fantastic job of making the reader empathise with protagonist Tommy O Brien so that when he decides to rob a bank he remains a sympathetic character and one most will root for Of course when a boy with healing abilities is unveiled and heads start disintegrating into red mist courtesy of the bullets that inevitably fly it s fair to suggest the tonal shift is abrupt This is Keene s stock trade however and he writes it better than well just about everybodyMy only significant issue was the overly convenient way the bank patrons talk about their histories so openly when not forced or cajoled to do so But otherwise Sherm as the friend who is than he seems becomes a fantastic foil for Tommy and it s the ratcheting of tension between these two that propels the story to its fitting conclusion4 Monster People in the Head for Terminal
