    Is when they were going to the Mac and were trying to call and couldn't get through but didn't attempt to send text messages, it may have not gone through either but the fact that Jerome didn't try wasn't believable to me, he would have, it really bothered me!!!

    ...if the networks were all over-loaded and not processing calls, texts would have been the same way...

    Yeah but when that one call came through it would have came through as the text instead, so if he would have sent a bunch of texts saying get out of there whenever service did pick up like when she got that one call instead like 10 texts would have came through at once, I'm not saying that it would have definitely got them out of there but Jerome being a young kid and tech savvy , he would have thought of that and at least tried in hopes that they would go through and she would just look at her phone and see, I just felt like Jerome's character was flawed when he didn't do that especially since him and holly were figuring everything else out but not to send a text message!?!? He missed that small detail, I still loved the book but was a little let down when that happened or didn't happen for that matter. So excited for the trilogy and curious as to how the story is going to play out, do you guys think Brady will still be character ? He is just gonna be locked up for life or the death penalty or something I would think? Maybe set him up to wait on the green mile and let sic Percy on him lol. I can't wait for revival either!!! I think maybe I should read the shining since I haven't read that one yet and then re read dr sleep, maybe by then a new one will be out, or go finish the dark tower series, I was half way through wolves of the calla , and stopped and picked up wind through the keyhole instead, I dunno sometimes I have trouble picking what to read next, I even finally tried a few different authors I read about 4 dean Koontz novels and they were def fun because from page one it's going and fast!! Whereas before I only ever read sk and he almost always slow walks at some point but pays off huge and ou realize how important the buildup is, and then when I went back to sk and while dean koontz was fun and all sk is in a class by himself, even with mr Mercedes where he sort of stepped in dk's genre but through me for a loop immediately when he revealed mr Mercedes right away and allowed us to enter and understand why and how he is so crazy, sk, a class all by himself

    ...you mean text as in "missed call"?...my thought there was, that with all the noise, lights etc-texting would have even less of a chance of being noticed than a phone call...

    Given the current justice system, I see Brady being committed to a psych ward somewhere instead of a life term in prison.

    (Or hopefully Gitmo!)

    I thought Jerome would have sent a text as well. It would have been easier to read a text than listen to voice mail or have a convo. And once the system unclogged, the text would have been there.

    The only problem with that is that Tanya said they weren't allowed to text, so they may have ignored the texts. Jerome would not have known though.
