5.0 out of 5 stars Total page-turner, November 11, 2012
Because of the title, I was anxious to find out how the story ends.
The book proves that, no matter how you come to the aide of your neighbor, or not matter how valued you are in your community, a few whispers will grow into something ugly, and there are always people waiting to see you fall.
The cast here is wonderful. There are some forward-thinkers, some people who just want to live and let live, and others who are so idle of mind and of body that they want nothing more than to see the destruction of others.
The overriding themes here are that of tolerance and the idea that it only takes a person or two to erase progress.
