This is one of those books that once you pick it up, you won't put it down. From the very beginning of the story, The Remains has a hold of you and won't let go. This is an amazing suspenseful thriller about a young woman being haunted by her past and the man who abducted her and her twin sister 30 years ago. The twins never told anyone about what happened to them for fear that the man would harm their parents, and now he's back in the surviving twins life.

If this had been a movie I would have been watching it with my hand around my mouth ready to be pushed above my eyes to hide. I loved it! It was like a roller coaster. I don't read a lot of thrillers, but I do love reading suspense and mysteries, and this was the best of both. The characters were easy to understand and like. The storyline wasn't the same old suspense and it kept me guessing. This is definitely a good read.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense, thrillers and mysteries. Not inappropriate for older teenagers, but mature readers only. I think my oldest son, who is 16, would like to read this book, but it might be a little too much for my younger son, who is 14. Not really a book that is specific for girls even though the main character is a woman. However it would be good for women to read because she handles herself and her situation really well.

This book will capture your attention from the first page. The writing style for the story is very easy and it is just pure entertainment. The characters are fleshed out in such a way that you get to know them well and you will find yourself getting personally involved with the.

My only negative with this book is with the editing. The biggest problem with the editing was incorrect use of adverbs, such as "Dan taught Molly and I to fish". The sentence should read "Dan taught Molly and me to fish". The only reason I am pointing this out is that it happens many times in the book. Editing and proofing are very important tools to use for any book.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story and would recommend this book.

A captive story that is an easy read, but it is littered with typos (incessant misspelling 'naseas' made me want to vomit) and other errors. There is the element of suspense, but the straightforward story is quite predictable throughout.Descrptions are simple (everybody is running hands through 'thick hair') but the story fights through the writing and mistakes to be somewhat captivating at times. This is an easy read that makes it a decent thriller for younger readers, but Christie and King it is not.

The book started with a good enough premise and then just fizzled. I enjoyed the first half and then it got very boring very quickly. Near the end when the main character is in the woods being hunted by her former abducter, the descriptions are so over dramatic in attempts at creating drama that just isn't there. And in the hospital, (SPOILER ALERT) when the husband wakes up for a split second, apparently hanging on out of love (yeah right) then he flat lines, the machine sounds and the nurse walks in, turns off the machine and "gives them a moment"???? Really?? Not a single attempt at lifesaving procedures? No code blue...nothing.. just oh, gee. Let me turn off this annoying alarm for you so you can have some time with the dead guy that we won't bother to try and save? Yeah...this is not what they mean when they talk about suspension of disbelief...Such a disappointment.

The Remains by Vincent Zandri is an amazing suspense-filled nightmare that does not let the reader out of it's grasps until the final word is read.

Just the cover of The Remains sends chills throughout my body and makes my fingers itch to grab it and delve in. Once I did begin to read, I was instantly hooked and found it very difficult to put down. I have read several thrillers and suspense stories and have to honestly say that this is one of the best that I have read. I was taken by surprise repeatedly, throughout the story and I loved that. The twists and turns were phenomenal and truly kept me racing from page to page.

The Remains is the story of Rebecca Underhill who has held a deep dark secret within her soul for thirty years. After the death of her parents and beloved twin sister, she has struggled to piece together some semblance of a life. Teaching art helps to fill some of the gaps left behind the loss of her loved ones and a divorce. However when one of her autistic students, who she grew up with, begins to paint troubling and telling paintings, Molly's life is turned upside down. It is not long before she realizes that the nightmare that she through lived, so long ago, is about to resurrect itself and will not let her go until she is finally dead.

A truly horrific and action packed story, The Remains made me shudder in apprehision, my skin crawl in revulsion and my heart break with pain. This is a story that truly has it all and will embrace readers within it's cover and hurtle them into Molly's life and tragic nightmare.

The Devil has re-emerged into society and will stop at nothing until his kitten has been sent to its rightful place.

"Run away little kitten. I'm going to chase u now." Run little kitten before you die...

*I wanted to explain my rating of this book. I am going to give it a 4.5 overall, however would state that for lovers of the suspense/thiller genre it would be 5/5!
