I'll keep this short: I needed this. After a series of really shitty not so good reads over the past couple of days, Where Things Come Back reassures me that there are stories worth the effort of not sleeping.

My one complaint though is that it’s cover does not give what’s inside justice. That aside, I really enjoyed this book, the characters and how things came together.

On one hand there’s Cullen, and on the other there’s Benton: two people not connected at all, but through a series of events, and a bunch of people… one is made. Much like my experience with On The Jellicoe Road, I found I could not put this down: A. I found myself wanting to know a bit more about Gabriel, who sounded just too perfect, mellow… kind. B. I also found myself pleasantly surprised with how and when Cullen’s and Benton’s two stories merged (collided?)
