I enjoyed the plot and it was quite gripping, I found myself really interested in the characters and their complexity was believable. However, some parts of the plot were extremely hard to believe, including parts of the ending and some of the premise regarding what the teacher did in the end.
There's no way the husband didn't notice she drew his blood while he was asleep? There was no mention of her giving him sleeping pills. Even if she did, wouldn't he question it if he woke up and saw a prick from where the blood was drawn? That part was kind of ridiculous, not going to lie.
The students, their characters, what they did, all quite believable, even the bit with the female student testing the milk cartons.
But the bit with the teacher finding the bomb? And disarming it? And the bomb being cooled down to prevent explosion? I cannot believe a 13 years old student could come up with that much, not even get the ingredients for it. I can believe he'd make a bomb, just not such a sophisticated one.
And the teacher finding it I can also believe, I even buy her disarming it. But her finding the mother? And just walking into a university building and putting it there? Bit much. Though maybe if she was super keen on revenge.
*** SPOILERS END ***
Overall, a good suspense but could be better. Less far fetched. Enjoyable nonetheless!
