The Boy from the Woods
Special thanks to Harlan Coben, Grand Central Publishing & NetGalley for providing our copy in exchange for an honest & fair review.
Well, my binge of all things Harlan Coben continues. This is my fourth book of his in the last few months. I think I'm starting to get a feel for his writing style, his tricks & how he creates such a suspenseful read. All I can say is...
I recognize Hester from Run Away, but my buddy Amy at Novelgossip tells me Hester is in a lot of Harlan books. I love her!
From the get-go, The Boy From The Woods starts off so strong. Also, can I get a visual on Wilde?!? The boy (now a man) raised in the woods sounds like my kind of guy -tough, smart, mysterious & helpful. He sounds hot as hell too.
There's a lot going on here. Harlan introduces us to a lot of characters, a lot of subplots & sometimes it's a bit much for me. Yes, I'm invested in the story & racing to the finish line. Yet, there's a part about 60% through where I'm wanting to give up. But, I have enough trust in Harlan that he's going to wrap things up & blow my mind. Guess what? He does just that.
I have a feeling that fans of Harlan will love this title. Also, if you're feeling burnt out on thrillers & suspense novels, The Boy from the Woods is a sure win. Be sure to check out my review for The Stranger.
