This seemed like it was going to be a very interesting read at first. But the book's "secret" was fairly obvious from the beginning. There wasn't a single character who didn't behave in exactly the way I would have expected them to. Bland and forgett ...more

This was disappointing because I had heard so many good things about the book. All of the characters were perfect stereotypes and did exactly what I thought they would do. It's quite a sad story, but I didn't feel moved because the characters didn't ...more

I started out really enjoying the humor in this book...clever plays on pop culture and an interesting "diary" format with questions for readers at the end. The characters were funny in a twisted way, but then nothing happened...repeated scenes to sho ...more

Loved it. Hayder really dug into the characters and the crime the same way she did in Poppet. I read this book in one day....could not put it down. The only thing keeping me from giving it five stars are a too convenient plot device near the end and ...more

Mo Hayder stepped up her game in this book. The character development and slow reveal of all elements of the mystery really made for a creepy story that drew me in, rather than just relying on gore to gross out the reader. Jack is my favorite part of ...more

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
Rate this book

I know I am in the minority when it comes to Malcolm Gladwell. I just don't find his books to be all that compelling. He always starts with an interesting enough premise, but then just repeats examples that seem to prove his theory. I don't think the ...more

I knew very early in this book who the real kidnapper was, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the story. I still wanted to know what his motivation was and how he chose his victims.
There are several parts where Hayder gives lengthy descriptions o

My least favorite of the series by far. Too many plot lines going on to fully develop any of them, especially the one that gives the book its title. I just wanted Flea to go away.
