The Woods by Harlan Coben



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 On. You don't worry about happiness and fulfilment when you're starving  . The Woods is a brilliant read! As this was my first Harlan Coben Book, I wasn't expecting much, but after reading it, I have added a lot of his books in my TBR list. Jeez, you have to read it to experience the thrill. According to me it's a must read!.

Harlan Coben - The Woods Series -. (Mystery, Thriller ) Twenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. I think about those days in the woods. I think about how he dug, how he finally stopped, how I thought he had given up after my mother left. Paul?" My father is suddenly agitated. I want to beg him not to die, but that wouldn't be right. I had been here before. It doesn't get better, not for anyone. I didn't know what to make of that so I went with the flow. I'm trying to learn what happened that night in the woods. Lucy said you wanted to see me," I said.

Hopefully, Coben will return to form with his next book. From Bookmarks MagazineIn this stand-alone legal thriller, Harlan Coben presents a riveting courtroom drama, creates riveting players, and delves into family secrets, love, loss, mistakes, and betrayal. A few critics noted that while The Woods falls into Coben's typical formula-a past crime affects innocent people in the present-it still comes off as fresh.

Just finished this book today. I give it four stars because it was very well written and rivetingly intense. I could hardly put it down. However, I have to say that I have seldom been more disappointed by a book ending. There was not much of lessons learned, take away value or redemption here...let alone any happily-ever-after. SPOILERS AHEAD: The Murder Squad gets their man but loses the psychopath girlfriend who instigated the whole thing because of a technicality that professionals should certainly not have missed. I found it puzzling that the main character would excuse his lack of suspicion of the psycho girl with an aside to the reader to the effect that "she tricked you too." That was so not true! The partnering detectives "break up" in a very silly way and go their separate ways, with one so far demoted that I wondered why he stayed on. AND the opening hook with the disappearance of the children 20 years before is NEVER resolved and remains as much a mystery at the end of the book as at the beginning! All in all, this was an excellent read, but I am not sure if I will read more by this author as I prefer stories with a more positive finale.

The main character is completely unlikeable and the ending is utterly unsatisfactory. Please do not spend money on this book.

I gave up on the book on page 33. This is the most overwritten book that I have tried to read in years. The writing is so burdened with allusions and other literary devices that I actually struggled to follow the story.

The book starts off detailing a bizarre unsolved tragedy involving 3 kids. To disappear without a trace in the last one is phoned with his fingers dug into a tree. Many years later that loan survivor becomes a detective and find some self involved in a murder case of a young girl from his hometown. The author tries to get us excited that there is some connection to the mysterious disappearance years before. The book moves slowly with out any real excitement or suspense.

Soon the detectives have some possible suspects. The family of the victim is involved of course.

SPOILER ALERT

by the end of the book we do find out who killed the modern girl but never find out anything more about the original mystery. There is no connection. To make this book even less of a thriller, the prime antagonist is obvious, and the author seems to think we will be shocked...

Maybe some people were surprised... I have read a lot of suspense and thriller novels and don't see right through it as easily as I did in this one... If you would like mystery, suspense or thrills look elsewhere. This book has none of that.

One of the best written books ever. French absolutely transports the reader to the scene through her poetic prose. All one has to do is read the Prologue to see it: "Picture a summer stolen whole from some coming-of-age film set in small-town 1950's." When I read that first line, I could visualize the summer day that French goes on to describe further as to its sky, which is "summer full-throated and extravagant in a hot pure silkscreen blue." It is a child's summer she is asking us to remember. a "summer [that] explodes on your tongue tasting of chewed blades of long grass."

This is an extraordinarily book! And when a shadow darkens that perfect summer, we can feel it. And Rob, one of the main characters, will always remember the golden parts of that day, but not when his two best friends disappeared, when he was left with a sneaker full of blood with no memory at all of what happened when the dark shadow of evil blotted out the sun. To adulthood, Rob will never recall the details and his friends are never found, never heard of, after that day.

Those woods in summer - Adult Rob (with partner Cassie) is now investigating a child's death in the same area. Of course, his tragedy in youth haunts those woods and Rob's mind. Is it possible there is a link between the two crimes? The author's language is exquisite, so wonderfully readable, perfect. I have read this book several times. My favorite scene: At one point, Rob tries to re-live his earlier experience in the woods by staying at the site, alone, and overnight. It is frightening, incredibly done, and so very real.

Another reviewer says that this book "is much more than a detective story. It is a great novel!" I agree.

After this, I went on to read The Likeness and Faithful Place. Both were excellent. But still, like Rob, I'm haunted by the visions that are In The Woods. A remarkable book and one of my favorites.

Kept assuming there would be a solution to mystery B. Mystery A was obvious. And not to give a solution to the main mystery is truly a betrayal of readers. Im so sorry I wasted money on book 2 thinking that it just might hold the answer. Anyone can drum up mysterious questions . Cheap. Honourable writers give answers. Dont waste your money. Sorry there are no negative stars.
