I was a little surprised when very early in the novel, Before the Fall, tragedy struck…and I’m talking big time tragedy involving the main characters…even before they have developed into main characters. This was quite a strange start from author Noah Hawley. I wasn’t sure what to make of it and really didn’t care for it, but the format kind of grew on me. As the title suggests, the rest of the story is about what happens…before the fall.
As usual I really don’t want to give up too much of the story, so I won’t. You’ll enjoy the mystery part of the book as you try to unravel the culprit behind the fall, you learn to dislike the media (I hope that you already mistrust them), and maybe just enjoy a good, late summer novel like I did.
