However, the more I read--the more apathetic I got. You know who the "bad guys" are from the beginning and any attempts to add suspense or tension simply fall flat. The attention to getting to know each other for the leads which initially I was applauding--I ended up skipping pages of their conversations (not because I wanted them to have sex, but because their conversations were heavily melodramatic and just went on and on and on--literally almost half the book is conversations between them talking about their angsty childhoods. It just gets to the point where you don't care and the conversations don't even have any witty banter or chemistry).
It was in short--boring. No real suspense or humor. Props for being a technically competent writer--but that's as far as it goes.
***SPOILER ALERT ***
When I review a book, I always star at the highest rating of 5 stars. When I finished reading, it had dipped into 3 stars but as I went through my personal checklist, I was actually surprised that it climbed back to 4 stars.
Here's why I took out 2 stars --- the book was supposed to be a romantic suspense but it was dragging. There were no real crests and valleys to excite you. It felt like a pendulum that only swings on one side. I need to be frightened and then feel safe to feel the suspense. Hannah was never frightened enough and did not feel safe enough even when she was with Logan already. In short, the promised adrenaline rush when you classify a book as a thriller was not just there.
Here's why I gave one star back thus the final 4 star rating --- the author was wise enough not to modernize the book. Originally written in 1993 before cell phones were common and the Internet as necessary as cable TV, it was great reading about floppy disks, pay phones and pagers. I like the authenticity of the period.
Logan is a memorable character. A dysfunctional hero, he was able to find redemption. Logan was the true main character here. Even Hannah who is the female lead is also on a supporting role. For Logan alone, I would have given one star back.Read more ›
Bottom line, it could have been good. It wasn't. I don't recommend it.
