Another fantastic read from Coben. And yet again, so thrilled I read ebooks...this one wud most definitely be shredded by excited page turning! I did pick the killer(s), in a way. No spoiler from me tho...hehehe...I love how Cobens mind works. Oh the tales he weaves...another 5 star read. Happy Reading!

One of my favourite HC books. Very suspenseful

Another great book by Harlan Coben. I was very surprised and I found it very suspenseful.

I'm not sure why this book didn't capture me. Objectively, it's fine. There are twists. I didn't see them all coming. Possibly because some of them weren't really set up; they just happened. The main one was earned but the rest felt kind of random. I think it also frustrated me that the missing girl wound up somewhat tangential to the story. I was expecting her to be a main focus, and she really wasn't.

Book was fine. Would probably read something else by this author. Wouldn't bother rereading this though.

What a page turner! This book has many varied characters and the plot really grips your attention!

His best Books are, Just One Look, Caught, And tell No One.

Harlan Coben is the Alfred Hitchcock of The Book World.

Really amazing book. Probably one of my favorites of all time.

Just about the time you think you have things figured out, a new twist comes in and you again wonder who the culprit is. Harlan Coben deals with predictors of teenage girls and leads one thru the changes in the lives of a handful of characters. Written with many twists and turns it is a real page turner. You will find yourself thinking about the plot as you go about your daily lives, until you finally finish the book with a very surprise ending. Way to go Mr. Coben!

7/08 - Exciting book with a twist that I didn't see coming. This is 3.5 more than 4, but I'm feeling generous today. I kind of felt like Coben was trying to get a few messages across with this book, namely the importance of internet security and underage drinking permitted by parents. I don't like being preached at and that's what I felt like while I was reading some of the passages, especially the ones focussing on the perils of underage drinking with the involvement of the parents. Personally I don't drink alcohol at all (I've found it all tastes terrible) and most of my friends abstain as well, so I've never been in the kind of situation that Hayley found herself in (and as a teenager I went out of my way to stay away from teenage parties where I might find myself in a situation like that). I'm also not a parent, but if I was and it looked like my teenager was going to go in the opposite direction to me, I would like to think that I'd be able to sit down with them and come up with some rules (like a limit on the amount of alcohol, strict rules on who is invited and a time limit). I would much rather they had a couple of drinks in my living room, than attempt to get fake I.D.s and get into clubs with hundreds of much older strangers/predators (especially in the case of a teenage girl).
Regarding the majority of the plot (this is where the book earned its stars) I had no idea what was going to happen, so as each twist was revealed I was surprised. I read it in just over 24 hours, so I didn't have enough time to really contemplate who the perpertrator might be (in Dan Mercer's or Phil Turner's case), I was just along for the ride.
