Wanted to hear more of aftermath...

The God of War by Marisa Silver
God of War

By: Marisa Silver

Genre:  YA fiction

Pages: 271

Published: 2008

Audiobook: 6 discs (7 hours)

Read: July

3 out of 5

This book immediately grabbed my attention. It starts with a hidden gun and a 12 year old boy protecting his severely autistic little brother. I was expecting it to go on with a trial and the aftermath. Instead it told about their life before the incident and the older brother's life with a autistic brother. This isn't nothing bad, I just thought it would be more interesting to hear what happened after. It does come back to the gun and major incident, but not until the last disc and in a brief manner. I am also surprised it is considered YA. I believe it is more an adult story and only a few teens would enjoy the story. I feel the teens, like me,  would be more enthralled with the incident itself, the aftermath and a little of the circumstances leading up to event. That would be a much more action packed story.
