Gone for Good by Harlan Coben

                                                         
                                                        Gone for Good by Harlan Coben

Harlan Coben is honestly one of the best mystery novelists ever! I have read quite a few of his books, such as Stay Close, The Stranger and Six Years. 'Gone for Good' kept me at the edge of my seat at all times, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed when reading this book. It's the kind of book that'll keep you awake until the late hours of the night, turning page after page non-stop, hoping to figure out the mystery. Once you feel as though you've figured something out, you come upon a bump that discredits what you originally thought.

Even though I've heard people tell me that the characters aren't well-developed in this novel, I beg to differ. I felt as though I knew the characters personally, and felt connected to them in some way. I highly recommend paying close attention to the descriptions of the characters. I felt like I skimmed over some important character descriptions, which actually proved to be incredibly important later in the novel. Honestly, the setting may be important, but the characters truly shape the nature of this book.

Will Klein is such an intriguing character. He's the protagonist who has just found out that his older brother is in fact alive, after thinking he was dead for over a decade. This proof is all he needs to set off a roller-coaster of a ride, in which Will stops at nothing, in a bid to find out the truth. Chapter after chapter a new mystery is thrown Will's way, and he does whatever it takes to solve the mystery. Does Will ever find out where his brother has been all this time? Why did Will's brother disappear in the first place? Read this book and find your answer to these questions! Comment below what you thought of the book once you read it! Thank you to Coben for an incredible book, cannot wait to read more of his novels!
