Herman Koch, an author from the Netherlands, writes a riveting novel about two families who meet for dinner to discuss an urgent family matter – their teenage sons are in big trouble. What will they do about it? How is it affecting their relationships? What are the consequences of their decisions? There are sinister undertones that make you wonder if you are getting a subjective view of the story.
The story delves into the nuances of using public media and the teenage propensity to share and brag. You can justify pretty much anything if you twist your reasoning enough.
A chilling similarity to this real-life story this April 2015.
