In the world we live in today with gun men taking innocent lives, we all have been in tears listening to the devastating news. With this in mind I think the author has been very brave casting a scene full of horror in When Time Runs Out, with leading the reader into why and how such a horrible thing has just happened. When Aslak was a baby everybody would smile and talk to him, just like people normally do to every baby they see, but however in this story I immediately got that feeling that Aslak must have been a beautiful, cheerful boy. Despite all the sweet and innocence of Aslak he was a loner with no friends, he just didn't mix in with anyone. It isn't long before Aslak turns dangerous he climbs upon the roof of the Glass Palace in Helsinki with a gun. Chaos is about to start as he starts shooting, leaving four people with serious injuries.
