I have Loved E.Lynn Harris for years and I have everyone of his books, I just starting reading RM Johnson a few years ago. This book had me going I couldn't put it down, but the ending was truly disappointing to me. I know books can't tell and give everything, but there are some points that they NEED to wrap-up and this was not the case. I have never know E.Lynn to leave you totally hanging and this was just a shocker to me.

The collaboration between the late E Lynn Harris and RM Johnson won't disappoint fans of either author. No One in the World is a fast-paced read. Its suspenseful and with twins who grew up on two seperate sides of the track, there's a whole bunch of drama. The twists and turns is what made No One in the World a great summer read.

I won't go into plot and story line, certainly others will do that. I will say this
is truly the type of novel that quickly grabs you by the throat and won't let go until the last page.

Yes. You will want more once it finally releases you.

Populated with a black family dynasty (the Winslows), secret familial ties, convicts and con-artists, down-low senators, this book was like a warm blanket to cuddle in while reconnecting to the late great E. Lynn Harris.

Penned with his good friend RM Johnson and found on his hard-drive after his passing at the tender age of fifty-four, No One In The World is the diamond we all now knew was hovering on his computer in its raw state to dazzle us all.

I only pray there are more gems to mine from the mind and hard-drive of Mr. E. Lynn Harris.

Mr. RM Johnson, and Mr. E. Lynn Harris, will top the bestseller list with this one!
You have to buy this book! I could not put it down!!
These twins who were separated in an adopton facility will take you on a ride you won't want to end!!
One grew up rich, and one grew up poor, but they are now together and oh my goodness!!
I want to tell you so much more, I can't ruin it for you! You HAVE to read it for yourself!
I have also read Mr. Johnson's "Keeping the Secret."
You have to buy that one also.
Boy oh boy talk about keeping a secret!
Another bestseller, and a must have book!
I miss you Mr. Harris!

As an avid ELH fan I was frankly shocked at the how poorly conceived and executed this collaboration was. Other than a handful of clever twists that stopped this from being rated one star, the dialog was stilted and predictable, and the characters so fleeting and two-dimensional it just made me wonder why Mr Johnson bothered. After grimly soldiering through the 111 two- to three-page chapters, the climax of the book was so ridiculous and so unbelievable I had to laugh out loud at myself for having read it for so long. Please, keep your memory of the fantastic E Lynn unsullied and, especially in this economy, your money in your pocket.

No One In the World by E. Lynn Harris and RM Johnson has received great reviews. Based on those reviews I was excited to begin this book. As I began to read it I found it to be very predictable.

The book begins with the life of Kobi Winslow and his mega rich family. Kobi has an issue that his father isn't too happy about and does not mask his unhappiness with Kobi very well. Kobi has one sibling that he is aware of and that's his sister, Sissy. After am unfortunate event Kobi learns he has a twin.

Kobi begins his quest for his sibling and encounters him in the most unlikely place you would think of. I guess this is where the story is supposed to take off. This is the point I found it to be predictable and rather boring.

As a result of the tragedy Sissy and Kobi have to make decisions that Sissy believes will be the best for the family business. Though Kobi may not agree with the decisions Sissy makes for him for some unknown reason he goes along with them without a fight.

There were certain parts of the book I didn't understand. Where did certain feelings manifest? This book left a lot of unanswered questions for me and I can honestly say I doubt very much that I will be reading the sequel if there is one.

I guess I'm in the minority. I have all of E.Lynn Harris's books, however, I didn't care for this one. It's an easy read because the chapters are very short. The ending leaves you hanging,overall, I didn't care for this book.

Maybe my expectations are too high for E. Lynn Harris' books,...this was my first RM Johnson book as well so therefore I had no expectations.

I thought the first portion of the book flowed very well, you found someone to love, hate, understand, possibly even relate to. However toward the end it seemed rushed and unrealistic. Or maybe I'm into self preservation....
