Burning Blue

FREE READ ´ Burning Blue N and the he falls for Nicole Too bad everyone is turning into a suspect including Nicole herself Award winning author Paul Griffin has written a high stakes soulful mystery about the meaning and dangers of love and beau When I first heard of Burning Blue I thought it was just a romantic story between a hacker and a popular girl I assumed it would be something fairly predictable like a girl got into an accident and then she met a guy and this guy probably handsome strong and protective would offer her a shoulder to cry on and then they d live happily ever after But Burning Blue is a lot than a romance It has mystery something that I wasn t able to resolve well it s like I made a guess in a wrong direction uite early on in the story and when things are revealed in the end I felt like I didn t uite see that coming not because I guessed things wrong but because the characters were not just black and white they were all shades of greyI really like the characters in the book They all have something that they d like to hide They all feel unsafe to share their secrets and I guess because of their desperation of wanting to hide what they don t want to get exposed they all act in ways that are deceptive somewhat hurtful and inauthenticWhat I love about Burning Blue is that in the story Jay the hacker goes about doing his investigation to find out who hurt Nicole not because he wants to make himself look like a hero He does it because he feels it s the right thing to do I also like that we get to see why Jay has become the version of who he is when he becomes acuainted with Nicole at school after her accident Probably because of his past his way of extending his support for Nicole is not exactly forthright but I like that he is sincere and caring I especially like how his action is always louder than his words when he is interacting with others in the storyBecause the characters in the story are not pure evil or pure good they feel real to me It s like I can relate to their sense of desperation their loathing of self their wanting to be different I can feel how eager they want to shatter the masks that they ve been wearing and yet they re afraid the exposure of their authenticity would cost them dearly I really like how the story explores into the vulnerability of our human nature and if you like stories that explore the frailties of human nature I think you ll love Burning Blue This review was originally posted on my blog Militant Right Wing Extremism in Putins Russia he falls for Nicole Too bad everyone is turning

FREE READ ´ Burning Blue How far would you go for love beauty and jealousy When Nicole Castro the most beautiful girl in her wealthy New Jersey high school is splashed with acid on the left side of her perfect face the whole world takes notice B I m enough of a cynic these days to greet reference to the theme of inner beauty with an eye roll In my experience much of the messaging around the nature of true beauty is either trite or saccharine and comes with generous helpings of condescension or overt moralising I need another lesson on the superficiality of judging someone s appearance like I need another makeover montage in a high school rom com So while the blurb of Burning Blue piued my interest the mention of the notion of where beauty lies triggered an alarm bell Despite or possibly because of that early misgiving Burning Blue exceeded my expectations It s a taut compelling mystery that examines the social physical and psychological ramifications of an act of shocking cruelty If the novel does not entirely succeed in answering the uestion of why someone would perpetrate such a crime it admirably examines the effects and the fact that support and empathy can be found in unlikely places Griffin does an excellent job of reinvigorating the somewhat tired and over used character archetypes of the mysterious loner guy and the beautiful popular girl Ostensibly Jay Nazarro and Nicole Castro fall neatly into these stock roles Jay is an outsider from the wrong side of the tracks and Nicole is a pageant winning beauty ueen yet their characterisation is substantially developed and layered As the story progresses they are each shaded and defined with strengths and flaws Griffin peels back layers of their outward image to reveal the vulnerabilities and motivations beneath Jay suffers from seizures induced by a head injury and is returning to school following an incident in his freshman year when he experienced an attack during a pep rally A skilled hacker Jay becomes consumed with identifying Nicole s assailant and in the process of his investigations and burgeoning friendship with Nicole is compelled to consider whether victim and perpetrator could be one and the same Jay and Nicole have convincing chemistry throughout the novel and I don t mean this merely in the romantic sense While Jay admits early in his narration to being attracted to Nicole the dynamic that develops between them is complex and believable based on their mutual recognition of a shared experience what it is to be labelled and isolated Griffin succeeds in showing why these two teenagers are drawn to each other and also the fragile balance of trust that tempers their connection The dialogue is sharp and intelligent much of the humour comes from the passages of conversation between the characters and occasionally Jay s own dry observations Related primarily through Jay s first person account the story is fleshed out with excerpts from Nicole s journal and her psychiatrist s notes These secondary channels of communication are used sparingly to provide detail that Jay couldn t possibly know but also to remind the reader that Jay s observations are fallible While I found Dr Nye s fortunately few portions of the novel to be less realistic the voices of both Jay and Nicole are well rendered and distinct Griffin has a firm grasp of Jay s astute yet guarded commentary and also captures Nicole s raw emotive language This isn t a novel that bludgeons the reader with a lesson about it being what s inside that counts While it would have been easy to draw a painfully laboured parallel between Nicole s scarring and the relative depth of physical beauty the novel fortunately avoids any too obvious clich s Of course that s still a theme in the book that a person is than the sum of their physical attributes but it s handled in an accessible manner Further I appreciated the fact that Griffin points out that even those we consider to be inwardly beautiful are not free from their own issues or faults It s evident from the novel that idealising a person on the basis of their appearance or their personality is to do them an injustice A shrewd reader than I may succeed in unravelling the mystery sooner but I was kept guessing up to the end On a slower read through perhaps I would have picked up on clues or uestioned some of the obvious conveniences in the plot but honestly I read this so fast I didn t have time to scrutinise for weaknesses in the action Also I m not a hacker sorry so I have no idea how feasible Jay s exploits in technological espionage really are I consider it worth mentioning however that I didn t want to put the book down I thought the tension was particularly good Griffin maintains a steady steep build up that feels in keeping with Jay s own increasing sense of urgency and subseuent sleep deprivation Finally I would recommend reading the author s comments in the acknowledgements and notes not before you finish though or you will completely spoil the book you have been warned as it gives his decision to write this particular story some greater context As to whether he adeuately unpacks the uestions raised could I be ambiguous reader mileage will vary I don t think this was necessarily the most nuanced analysis of the motivations behind such an abhorrent act yet I do think that he handles the repercussions thereof in an effective manner It s a sensitive and insightful portrayal of teens dealing with trauma in their own way framed in a twisted suspenseful thriller
