Book Rating: 4 out of 5
Can't Put It Down Rating: 4 out of 5
Holy Shit That Changed My Life Rating: 3 out of 5
Harlan Coben hit a home run with Tell No One. I have read several of his novels and I have to say this is my favorite. The plot is genius and Coben absolutely crushed it with several twists and turns that came along perfectly, right up to the last chapter. This is an easy read and will keep you entertained til the very end.
Most can relate to losing someone close to them. It sucks. You never really get over a loved one leaving planet earth before you, it just gets a little easier to go on with your life as time passes. Right? Well, imagine losing the person closest to you, far before "their time" and imagine it being in a violent and life altering way. Then, imagine living with it for EIGHT long years and one day, out of the blue, you get an email... from them. This is the basic plot that Coben tackles in this fun and exciting novel. The story that unravels after this moment is full of twists and back flips. It really takes you on a crazy ride through dirty cops, badass gangsters and high society players, all while intertwining a life-long love that can never be broken. So much so that not even death can do them part.
If you like twists and turns, unlikely heroes and page turning action, don't pass this one up. The twist at the end is fantastic and thankfully it achieves this without being cheesy. Not an easy task.
So, if you are in the market for a thriller and you are ready to give smutty summertime television a quick breather, (I love smut TV) this novel is a nice little vacation from the tube.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be taking a look at MR. MERCEDES by Stephen King next and tell you whether or not it will be worth your limited time here on this earth to start the Bill Hodges series as the second book, FINDERS KEEPERS, just recently hit stores. Stay tuned!
