Published: NaN/NaN/NaN
A man with a mysterious past must find a missing teenage girl in this shocking thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away. Thirty years ago, Wilde was found as a boy living feral in the woods, with no memory of his past. Now an adult, he still doesn’t know where he comes from, and another child has gone missing. No one seems to take Naomi Pine’s disappearance seriously, not even…

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.

THE VERDICT

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.
