Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot. * Elle Magazine * In All the Missing Girls Megan Miranda leads readers back through the past of a small town, enfolding them in a slow, tense nightmare of suspicion, menace, and tangled motives. A twisty, compulsive read - I loved it. * Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark, Dark Wood * Extremely interesting...a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian * New York Times, editor's pick * All the Missing Girls is a smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller. Told in reverse, this story will make you want to lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page. * Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex * As original as it is addictive, this story puts a knot in your gut from the opening pages.

Definitely worth a look. -- InStyle.co.uk, If You Liked Girl on a Train You'll Love These...

This format shouldn't work, it's wrong, it's challenging. . . . but it totally does. I'm not going to talk about the plot, you can read about that in the blurb. I'm going to tell you how reading this made me feel.
I was hooked from the beginning, which is the end. Confused? This is a challenging read at first. It is so clever and brilliant that it inspires a commitment to follow this thread. Grip the end of the rope, hand over hand, trace it back and immerse yourself in the narrative.
I was completely committed to unravelling this tangled rope.
The characters are real, damaged, fragile, afraid, strong, complex and surprising. Every single character is written brilliantly and plays their part in this story.
I've never read a book like this. I highly recommend it to any crime, psychological thriller fans. There's no gratuitous violence or salacious sexual scenes. Every word is essential. Read this book
Massive thanks to the publishers, author and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. I received a complimentary ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review
I'm always drawn to books that involve abductions and missing people but this is unlike anything I've ever read before! All the Missing Girls is told in reverse, which is a new thing to me, I had to concentrate quite a lot on it but it was quite good.
The story focuses on the abductions of two young women, ten years apart. I enjoyed this book, it makes for a solid psychological thriller. It's unpredictable and keeps you constantly guessing as to what will happen next. There were times I was a bit confused and had to go back and re-read parts but then I was good to go for a bit longer! I don't think that the book being told in reverse added anything to the story and think it would have been just as good told in the 'normal' way.
I think that All the Missing Girls is definitely worth a read by people, it just didn't grab me quite as much as I wanted it to!
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 3.5* from me.
The book kept me hooked from start to finish. Telling the tale backwards means that you have work out the references without the build-up to an event. Then you read what actually happened before in the next (previous) chapter. Throughout Megan Miranda doesn’t miss a beat. I was second guessing myself through the reading, trying to pick through the lies and work out the truth. At times I struggled to trust Nic as a narrator making the reading more haphazard. (This is mentioned at the beginning but when I reading I try to find a credible source.)
A polaroid fading from the edges in, the colors bled out; the outline of a ghost town full of ghosts.
The writing is claustrophobic and dense. It has a magical, woven sense of style and I devoured it. It’s blustery and free-spirited but always with a sense of danger. I have a feeling I will buying everything and anything this author writes.
"The woods have eyes and monsters and stories. We are them as much as they are us.”
The characters are fantastically written. Tyler the ex-boyfriend who’s always there for Nic. Trusting but also cold he was a favourite of mine. Nic can be a struggle to empathise with but as I go deeper into the rabbit hole I wanted it to all be okay. Her ailing father, closed off brother it’s an infuriating and exciting mess.Read more ›
Will she find the missing girls?
The story is written backwards, quite strange and original at the same time, we start reading at 15 days from now, and then backwards since the day Nic arrived at her home...
While the story progresses, we feel like we are inside a box with a bomb, claustrophobic and with a countdown that we don't know how to stop. There's someone watching us and two women had disappeared, one in the past and one now... Have they had anything in common? Why they left without anyone noticing?
Everything seems related to the night Corinne Prescott disappeared, they were on the fair, the 6 friends, and none of them told the truth to the police... but all of them had their own secrets... tick, tock...
The bomb will explode splashing the truth everywhere, will it be enough to save the lives of all of them? Or it is too late to save their souls?
I was quite surprised with this book, Nic is quite a cold woman, we don't know much about her, just that she has some dark secrets and that she is not ready to face the truth. She doesn't know neither if she wants to marry her fiance or continue the relation she has with her old boyfriend... She doesn't have a good relation with her brother, who has his own problems with the house, his pregnant wife and some secrets of his own...
We can not forget about Corinne or Annaleise, were they saints or sinners?Read more ›
