Three Days to Die - a Review
Three Days to Die, by John Avery, was adapted into a book from the original screenplay. It is fast-paced thriller that proved to be extremely hard to put down.
It opens with a bank robbery, and one of the robbers is a young boy who seems to be a bit dazed and confused by it all. Is he there willingly? If not, how did he become involved with these hooligans?
Thirteen-year-old Aaron went to a warehouse to meet up with his friend, Willy. Aaron arrived there before Willy. He didn't realize that bank robbers were using the warehouse as a hideout. He overhears part of their conversation and accidentally makes a noise that alerts them to his presence. That was a mistake. From that point on, his life begins to change.
Aaron's mom is single now; his dad was killed during military action four years ago. What could Aaron do? The guys who caught him didn't kill him, they wanted his cooperation. They wanted him to work with them. And one of them wanted to know how to locate his beautiful mother.
Aaron's next few days are filled with bank robberies. His role at first is that of lookout, so he is never inside the bank. He actually begins to feel just a bit of enjoyment as he works with them. But one of the robbers teaches him how to load and use a gun. And on their next job, he is to go in the bank with them.
What started out as a simple meeting with his friend has turned into a nightmare. Aaron's calm life has taken a turn that he will never forget. He learns why some good people go bad. And he learns that some bad people were just bad all along.
There are people looking for Aaron and trying to save him. His friend, Willy, is searching for him, as is Michael, a guy he met when he was trying to escape from the guys who wanted to kidnap him. And, of course, there is his mom. She is offered the chance to save her son by trading herself for him. What would you do if faced with such a decision?
Will Aaron emerge from this traumatic experience a better person? What happens to his mom and to his friends?
If you like books that are filled with action, suspense, and a thrill a minute, then you will love this 225-page book that can easily be read in just one day.
