Very interesting concept and idea in this book, but unfortunately, maybe it was lost in the translation, I didn t felt enough emotion and didn t find it philosophical enough either It s still a good book, because in put in perspective some life choice people makes and some life choice that were force on them It s also, obviously, a book about justice and present the concept of people doing nothing or passively agreed with the system keep this system working something that is terribly actual And it s well written it really has everything it need, but just felt a bit short in the execution, it s good, but it could have been perfect Fuck.I have no words I m emotionally drained They say don t judge a book by its cover but the same goes for don t judge a book by its length This little thing packs a mean punch And I was hopelessly unguarded against its brutal attack on my emotions I think what really hit home for me was the last page With nothing but the simple synopsis and Emily s wonderful review, I was sold But the message that failed to hit home before I picked this up was that this is a.bleak and depressing novel Don t get me wrong, it s utter brilliance distilled and poured into 140 pages or so but the honesty in which it s written will reduce anyone to tears If you re anything like me always hoping for a better outcome in any situation and always trying to see the good in other people, walk away now This book is not for you.A great man once said When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it s longer than any hour That s relativity EinsteinWhether 12 hours pass or 2 minutes, you don t truly get a sense You re suspended in this whirlwind of flashes into the past and then anchored back to the present and you relive each passing moment with Niel The author does a remarkable job revealing snippets of the past at just the right time that it s not until you reach the near end that you truly appreciate what has gone on By brutally honest, what I mean is that Niel s guilt is not even questioned once not by a single character It just is The story is told in such a way with multiple perspectives that on the face of it, it appears to be a simple factual account of what s gone on and as a reader, you inevitably reach a point where you start to question what his real crime is being in the wrong place at the wrong time Being unfortunate and poor Wanting to work hard and prove to society how wrong it was in its preconceptions regarding his class Standing up for someone close to him view spoiler I cannot honestly say how much of this book is based on true events and I m in no position to judge whether Niel deserved such a punishment especially without the full facts but if as the book suggests that his true crime was poverty, then it s truly saddening More so, when you consider that this issue is still rife even in today s society Society is quick to judge someone s guilt based on their looks, their race, their gender, their class.and newspapers are even quicker to stoke and fuel that fire It s a vicious cycle and one we seem to be incapable of learning from.With no one left behind to mourn or remember him, I hope that anyone reading this takes a moment to imagine themselves in Niel s shoes back in 1853 RIP hide spoiler @Free Book ⚷ Den sidste henrettelse á In Twelve Hours, A Fifteen Year Old Boy Will Be Be Executed On Gallows HillThe Master Carpenter Comes To Measure Niels For His CoffinThe Master Baker Bakes Bread For The SpectatorsThe Messenger Posts The Notice Of Execution In The Town SquareThe Poet Prepares His Best Pen To Record The Events Of The Execution As They UnfoldA Fly, Niels S Only Companion In The Cell, Buzzes, BuzzesA Dog Hovers By His Young Master S WindowA Young Girl Hovers Too, Pitying The BoyThe Executioner Sharpens, Sharpens, Sharpens His BladeEach Townsperson Holds A Stake In The Execution But As The Hours Tick By, Each Must Answer The Question Does This Young Boy Have The Right To Live Or Does He Deserve To Die Dark and deliciously atmospheric, this is a moving work Don t let its size confuse you this is for mature readers. Despite being such a slim story of roughly 132 pages, this book definitely packs a meaningful punch that really gets to the thoughts and emotions of the reader Author Jasper Wung Sung chronicles the last twelve hours before the execution of a fifteen year old, Danish boy, Niel Wung Sung truly plays with the feelings of the reader, describing the setting of Niel in the jail cell and his one and only companion, a buzzing fly And in the most concise manner possible, Wung Sung flashes back and forth between Niel s heartwarming memories of his father and his relationship and the present situation of his execution The most intriguing part of this story, however, is how the entire town takes part in the making of his death from the carpenter to the baker to the dog outside of the jail cell it s a collaborative effort that makes you wonder about what is happening And after double thinking, you realize that this short, yet strong book is a reflection of society s treatment of the poor, especially in the nineteenth century Thus, if you re a person who enjoys short books, this book is strongly recommended It s a powerful message with a clear story. It s nearing the end of o levels so I had the chance to read this book and I ve got to say it s such a heartwarming book It s about a 15 year old boy who s to be executed which sounds so heartbreaking But, after reading the story, I guess, it didn t feel so sad It s because we get a glimpse of his thoughts and feelings Also, we get the perspectives of other people in the town about the execution However, it wasn t as emotionally impactful as I hoped it would be so the 4 stars. This was a ready good read It s really short but packed with such emotion and food for thought I saw people reviewing this one and was intrigued by the summary An execution Sign me up.Unfortunately, the effort I out into getting my local library to buy this wasn t actually really worth it This book jumps around A lot There s time jumps, perspective jumps, jumps to poetry and different fonts It s confusing and honestly, half the time I didn t actually know what was going on It s 132 pages long I should t be confused by a book with only 132 pages The dialogue was particularly bad The author never wrote who was speaking and you couldn t just figure it out based on what they were saying because noooo, it has to be pretty and poetic and totally useless Was it the author Was it the translator Who knows, it was awful.I read this in a total of forty minutes or so and I will completely forget it in a total of fourteen minutes or so. Good for a quick read. The moment you let go of the stone, it s too late to change your mind But if you don t say or do something, it is also too lateI purchased this book because I ve found that for me, it s always those under two hundred page books that pack a punch that longer books usually aren t able to reach This book didn t disappoint at all It caused me to be transported to Denmark in the 1800s I was in the cell with Niels It s so atmospheric Because the setting is for the most part in a cell with a fly and a dog outside, everything was crystal clear as to what was going on However, the story does switch out of the prison cell occasionally There are flashbacks about Niel and his father and their struggle to find food and a place to stay the night It was bittersweet because I loved their connection, but his father s spiral from strong to crippled is heart wrenching.The narration is very successful, too Although it is told from Niel s point of view a lot of the time, there are also other townspeople There is the baker, the carpenter, the messenger, the mayor, the priest, and the executioner They all have very differing views on the execution of this fifteen year old book Some are excited, hoping for an increase in money from this, some have conflicting emotions, and some are pretty torn up about it It was so interesting to see how everyone felt about this, and it was brilliant for Wung Sung to decide to narrate like this.There were so many themes that I never read about There was the struggles of the lower class, the corruption of government, the greediness of business owners I loved reading about all of these things, as saddening and aggravating they all are It was like a breath of fresh air in this cliche world of YA.I loved basically everything about this book It was hard to believe that this is based on a true story The hill that the boy was executed on now has a bench on it that you can sit and look down on the town Horrific Heartbreaking Definitely pick this up if you re looking for a quick read that will make you think.
