4 1/2 Stars -- You'll Need Your GPS System With You When Reading Caught In Order To Navigate Through All Its Twists And Turns!,
This review is from: Caught (Hardcover)
If you've read other books by Harlan Coben, you know that once you start his books they grab hold of your attention from page one and never let go until the last word on the last page. Caught, Coben's latest, is no exception. If Caught is your first "Coben," be prepared to get so "caught up" in it (sorry about that!) that once you start, you won't want to put it down. Caught is a gripping story about guilt, grief and the capacity to forgive. It tells the story of a missing girl, the community stunned by her loss, the predator who may have taken her, and the reporter who realizes she can't trust her own instincts about this story nor the motives of the people around her. Is Caught great literature? No, of course not. It is, however, a very suspenseful plot-driven book filled with an abundance of twists and turns and interesting characters that most readers will be able to relate to. I'm giving Caught a 4-star -- actually a 4 1/2 star -- rating instead of 5-stars because I felt a few of the twists and turns were a bit contrived and gratuitous. Nonetheless, this is a very minor issue and should not hold you back for an instant from reading Caught. Enjoy!
