    Harlan Coben s novel is a fabulous thriller that takes a little while to work out where it is going, there are numerous threads and a particular highlight is the range of characters from the endearing to the boo hiss variety, set in Westville, New Jersey The eponymous boy from the woods is Wilde, a feral child, approximately aged between 6 8 years old, discovered surviving alone in the woods with no memory of who he is or where he came from No one ever claimed him or came forward wi

    The Boy From the Woods is an action packed thriller about two missing teenagers, a dirty politician, and damaging secrets The plot seems simple and focuses a teenage girl who disappears without a trace She is the school pariah Then the rich popular boy, who is a bit of douche, disappears as well This is where things get complicated There s a lot of action and suspense in the attempts to find the missing teenagers Lies unravel and secrets are revealed Conspiracy theories, a ransom

    When it comes to timely reading of pre publication books I get by way of NetGalley, I try to play it straight really, I do by reading them in order of next to be released But sometimes I get one I m so excited about that it jumps to the head of the line This is one of those times And to the half dozen books that got pushed aside, I promise to get to them soon, but love means never having to say you re sorry This one was way too good for apologies It s most notable to me for the interesting char

    Life isn t lived in the black and white, Wilde People like to think so nowadays All the online outrage, things are either all good or all bad But life is lived in the gray Life is lived in the nuances Action wise, this book was as excellent as I have come to expect from Harlan Coben Lots was going on at all times Several subplots overlapped and came together, which made it so that the pacing never lagged But where this differed from Coben s most recent book Run Away and the now almost classic

    Wilde was found living feral in the woods when he was a young boy and has no memory of his past or even his name He became friends with a boy called David and was then taken into foster care.Many years later he is asked by David s son to look for for a girl in his class that has gone missing.This is the first book by this author that I have read and I really enjoyed it, especially all the different characters I will be looking to read of his books.Thank you to NetGalley and Random House UK, Cornerstone fo

    As with every single prior Harlan Coben novel, I am in love with these characters, this book and I can t believe I have to wait a year for a new book The Boy in the Woods features a connection to one of my favorite Coben recurring characters, the esteemed Hester Crimstein, but this time, Hester is one of the stars of the show we do get an articulate reference as well including these easter eggs to past books or characters is one of my favorite things about reading Coben it s like an inside joke with these char

    Any normal Harlan Coben fan does exactly what I did when I received this early copy I started reading it as soon as I pulled it out of the mailer Cue the roller coaster track sound as I start turning pages bc that s the thrilling ride this book is Lots of moments that had me squirming in my seat wondering if I should just pace the floor as I read The story of Wilde, Naomi, Hester and Oren makes for a complicated plot that you are just absorbed into I love Hester and wonder if anyone else pictures here as Kathy Bat
