Harlan Coben: The Woods (Rating: 9)

I just finished reading The Woods by Harlan Coben.

I simply cannot say enough about this man as a writer: he is, in my opinion, quite possibly the most readable author in America, if not the world.

Things I liked about this book:

  • I loved the way Coben concealed so many hints about what was to come into the prologue
  • As usual, I loved his characters, which are always very human and believable
  • I loved the plot of the book, and the way so many elements of the book were interweaved
The only thing I didn't really care for about this book was the very ending. I mean, I certainly understand what was going on (a phrase which here means "Why he felt he had to wrap it up like that"), but I didn't particularly find it pleasing.

On the whole, I'd say this book is exactly what I've come to expect from Coben's books: after reading every one of his novels, I've come to expect excellence in storytelling, and have yet to be disappointed.

Until further notice, consider every one of his books to be highly recommended reading!
