Description

After starting this novel I couldn’t quit, her writing is just so compelling, those of the words I would use to describe it! The realness of the emotions of all of the characters was so realistic and insightful it truly felt like I was experiencing the revealing of the mystery of what happened to her daughter with Laurel. A tasty, if not always tasteful, tale of supernatural mayhem that fans of King and Crichton alike will enjoy. She never gives her hopes up and fixated to find her in expanse of tearing up her own family, parting her ways with her husband, estranging with her two other kids. Dark and unsettling, this novel’s end arrives abruptly even as readers are still moving at a breakneck speed.

It sort of feels like I've read a hundred different variations of the missing daughter/grieving mother plot, and Then She Was Gone doesn't really do anything new with it. How the author balances both stories and interweaves them into an amazingly realistic and beautiful conclusion can only be described in a word as brilliant.The blending of multiple genres in each of her books really creates a unique reading experience; readers of every gender and walk of life have been able to connect with her writing and I feel that's a sure sign of the highest quality of writing. All of these devices serve to build palpable tension, but the structure also contributes to how deeply disturbing the story becomes. Then Laurel is introduced to his little girl: Poppy, and she is dumbfounded to discover that Poppy bears a striking resemblance to Ellie, her Ellie. His constant praise of how gorgeous and stunning and amazing Laurel is is nearly just as creepy as him keeping silent about Poppy.

If you were the first of your friends to read Girl On The Train, and have read Gone Girl more times than you can remember, then here is your summer read. I think the author got the information from the Medical study conducted by the University of Rochester. If the author leans on hateable characters (like The Girl on the Train) or other thriller tropes (alcoholism, mental illness, etc. The book alternates between "Then" and "Now" to tell the story of what happened to Ellie, who kidnapped and hurt her, what the new love interest for Ellie's mother, Laurel, has to say transpired over all the years, and where things really fell apart.A golden girl, favorite daughter with a brilliant future ahead of her: Ellie tells her mother save the last piece of lasagna for her and she is going to the library but it will not take long for her to come back. even though my original guesses were wrong, its VERY obvious what will happen early on in the story, and so it just started to feel drawn out by the halfway point. Before she knows it, she's meeting Floyd's daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel's breath away. Or maybe I’m just jaundiced by the idea of a perfect man showing up at the table next to an older divorced woman. A week after the night she chases but fails to catch a mysterious trespasser outside her town house, some unknown party texts Tempe four images of a corpse that looks as if it’s been chewed by wild hogs, because it has been.

Ten years after her teenage daughter went missing, a mother begins a new relationship only to discover she can't truly move on until she answers lingering questions about the past. For me this one was a little difficult to read because the behavior of this probable psychopath was just so twisted and ugly. If the author can find just the right combination of these things, then I will be right there ready to throw more stars their way. Also, I really enjoyed how she leaves us with little snippets of clues along the way for us readers to pick up on right away and start questioning and guessing how they fit into the story.I usually really dislike predictable books and I usually figure out most mysteries which annoys me; not with this book though. Lisa Jewell is the internationally bestselling author of sixteen novels, including the New York Times bestseller Then She Was Gone, as well as I Found You, The Girls in the Garden, and The House We Grew Up In.
