5, but I ve read one previous Coben book, and I liked it a lot The author can clearly do better.
I read this a month and a half ago, but I can barely remember any details NOT a good sign Lemme see what I can recall mmmm There s something about a series of killings at a teen summer camp coming back to haunt one of the camp counsellors who s now a county prosecutor 2o years later The KGB might be involved Various people who were thought to be dead or killed might still be alive Etc.
The plot just seemed overly convoluted all at the expense of character depth Not that I mind convoluted plots in thrillers There was a lot going on in Jo Nesbo s The Snowman, but I remember it and the characters a lot vividly, even though I read it a year ago Then again, I do remember chuckling a couple of times during The Wood 3.
5 a real page turner story was full of twists whenever i thought i know the murderer, there was a new mystery and a new revelation I will definitely be reading other Coben soon.
Definitely a page turner Coben always fascinates me with his novels Just love this guy HC is great This was very good audio book, well crafted artists that delivered good quality reading with excellent accents, tone and an all round feel of a quality performance, as after all, these audio books are a performance Also a great feature was the use of a male and female narrator Excellent Funny enough though, I own the paperback without list here on GR, so again I end up with both hardcopy and audio Here, the audio fits the bill This was a good chilling read I always love the protags in this author s stories I was on the edge of my car seat the whole way, and boy was I glad to start my first job of my library career I did not mind for one minute that the commute was thirty minutes each way Cope , a successful city prosecutor searches for answers from a night which occurred over twenty years ago, the killings at a summer camp that he feels terribly guilty You don t worry about happiness and fulfilment when you re starving 2.
5 stars The Woods was quite boring with nothing new to surprise me Harlan Coben put the old materials in this book again without reconsidering whether the twists were predictable or not Four children were lost in The Woods, twenty years later Paul Copeland wants to revaluate this case again, he thinks that maybe his sister is still alive somewhere The book started off with the same feeling as if I was reading Tell No One, but the investigation part was not interesting or engaging at all The case he s dealing with takes the big part and I had to skip it sometimes, it s meh ish You live among this ridiculous wealth and you get lost You worry about nonsense like spirituality and
I have read all of Coben s Myron Bolitar books and love them all, but I have so far only tried a couple of his stand alones On the strength of this one I will be looking out for.
The main character is Paul Copeland, County Prosecutor of Essex, New Jersey On the face of it he is an admirable character, successfully raising a child after the death of his wife, managing a fast developing career and totally honest and trustworthy His court scenes are tremendous fun and he certainly fights to win Of course no one has nothing to hide and events start to stack up against Paul.
This being a Harlan Coben book the story is excellent, fast paced, covering a lot of ground and with one red herring after another The ending is quite a surprise although I was yelling at Paul to get out of there long before the gun app Oh Harlan, you were exactly what I needed But before I begin, let me say that this was my first Harlan Coben experience I ll than likely read of his stuff Bear with me as I explain myself Okay, the writing was nothing spectacular there were even times when I winced as he described something by using the item Example The great oak stood like a, well, great oak Yes, this type of writing appears frequently than I liked, but the writing is really not an issue with this type of book I say this type of book, not this type of genre or other genres for that matter What is really important here is the story And, oh nelly, is this one a doozy Striped down, The Woods is nothing than a murder mystery But Coben ratchets it up a bit, adds seemingly unrelated storylines and enough McGuffins to make even the best reader stumble on their way to the conclusion Sadly, I am not one of those fortu This was my first Harlan Coben book and I thought it was just fabulous I m not huge into mysteries or thrillers , but when I do sit down with one this is the type of story that has everything I want in a page turner short chapters, quick dialog, twists and turns, and narration that was surprisingly funny at times case in point, after annoying a police officer and a prosecutor both in a matter of hours the main character concludes, I had itched an ass this morning and now I had burned a butt A big day for me I have a pile of books waiting to be read and could easily grab one to take to bed with me tonight Still, I think I ll wait until tomorrow when I can run out to the bookstore and pick up another gem Mr Coben He s definitely got me hooked
