    One thought on “Something Must Be Done”

    1. Matt Carrell is best known for his writings about Thailand, especially his novel 'Thai Kiss'.With this short story he dips his pen into the emotional maelstrom of school massacres and US gun laws. Without wishing to stray into spoiler territory, Mr Carrell surveys this hot topic from the perspective of a UK-born schoolboy who finds himself being educated in the United States. The writing is not preachy or didactic - it is a realistic account of family tragedy and of growing up, isolated in a for [...]

    2. The story is well written. The author has provided a fictional account of a high school shooting. The author doesn’t give any solutions here but brings about the importance of the need to get ‘Something done’. But as he says a quick fix will not solve any problem but may end up adding to it instead. Also the big question is, those who resort to such shootings – are they criminals or people who require medical attention. Something must definitely be done but after giving much thought to i [...]

    3. Excellent, while disturbing. I applaud the author's comment that he has no quick fixes, but he did a great job of drawing attention to the problem. You can only fix a problem if you realize there is a problem - and that's the problem, most don't see a problem.Read this is you are prepared to think. If your mind is closed, there is no point in spending the time on it - you are part of the problem.

    4. I'm a big fan of the author's Thai books - this was something of a departure. It's only a short story but it doesn't feel like it - it covers so much ground. If I have one reservation about this - it's that the author actually had enough material here for a novel. Highly recommended.

    5. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE is a well written short story. Sam is young boy who witnesses the overdue demise of his parents' relationship. His father's job as a deliveryman keeps him away from his family, and Sam watches as his mother makes light of her marriage vows. When his family finally unravels, Sam moves to the United States with his mom. The United States is a different culture for the family, and Sam has a hard time adjusting. The quiet schoolboy finds some differences in the language and th [...]
