1.0 out of 5 stars Mad at Myself for Reading the Whole Thing, July 18, 2010
This review is from: Caught (Hardcover)
This is my third Harlan Coben book. I enjoyed the others well enough to read a third, but Caught was, well frankly, just terrible. Coben starts out with a poorly disguised Nancy Grace character and tries to make her likeable. That didn't work. I actually read the whole book, hoping against hope that the ending would make it worth the effort. It didn't. I wanted to throw it against the wall. This story was contrived, boring, implausible, boring, annoying, boring, slow and, well, boring. Sorry to be so negative, but I just finished this and the ending was so bad it just made me mad, mad that I read the whole thing.

I am a longtime Coben fan but I thought "Caught" was just rubbish. The plot was disjointed and I had the impression it might have been something he wrote in college and dusted off and stuck out there as new work.
Huge disappointment. Don't bother.

Hey V. E.,

I, too, have enjoyed Coben for many years, and I was considering buying this book. Thanks for your comments. They saved me both time and money - I will pass on this Coben novel.

Best wishes,
Dave Wile

Wendy Tynes was more of a Chris Hansen character than Nancy Grace. Hansen lured pedophiles to vacant houses and confronted him with cameras and police officers.
