I enjoyed my first Harlan Coben experience. It was exactly what I expected it to be and exactly what I felt like reading on a long airplane flight - fast-paced, CSI-style murder mystery with surprise plot twists and an unpredictable ending. Not surprisingly, the characters were pretty shallow, the first-person narrator was way too omniscient and the story was completely unrealistic (believability rating 3 out of 100). But that's absolutely fine. Now I know what all the hype was about and I choose to group Harlan Coben with Catherine Alliott and Marian Keyes - books that are well-written and entertaining enough to be a good airplane or light-reading option - rather than Jodi Picoult or Twilight - way too badly written to be enjoyable.
