    One thought on “The Woods”

    1. I find that if I pick up a book by Harlan Coben, I then resent anything that requires my attention, dragging me away from it, such is his skill at grabbing hold of you and playing with your mind. He really knows his stuff, able to draw readers in with ease, and he hasn't failed with The Woods. The suspense is constant, but not happy with that, he manages to turn up the action a notch further as the story twists and turns every which way! The characters are really believable too, and the dialogue [...]

    2. Twenty years ago eighteen-year-old Paul Copeland was working as a counselor at a summer camp in which four teenagers walked into the woods one night two were murdered, and two went missing, never to be seen again (they were thought to be dead, their bodies were never found, some of their clothing had blood on it). One of the missing was Paul's sister, Camille. Twenty years later Paul (now a County Prosecutor) is being asked questions by detectives about a man who was recently murdered who had Pa [...]

    3. “You don't worry about happiness and fulfilment when you're starving.”2.5 stars The Woods was quite boring with nothing new to surprise me. Harlan Coben put the old materials in this book again without reconsidering whether the twists were predictable or not. Four children were lost in the woods, twenty years later Paul Copeland wants to revaluate this case again, he thinks that maybe his sister is still alive somewhere. The book started off with the same feeling as if I was reading Tell No [...]

    4. Just love this guy. HC is great. This was very good audio book, well-crafted artists that delivered good quality reading with excellent accents, tone and an all-round feel of a quality performance, as after all, these audio books are a performance. Also a great feature was the use of a male and female narrator. Excellent! Funny enough though, I own the paperback without list here on GR, so (again) I end up with both hardcopy and audio. Here, the audio fits the bill. This was a good chilling read [...]

    5. I have read all of Coben's Myron Bolitar books and love them all, but I have so far only tried a couple of his stand alones. On the strength of this one I will be looking out for more.The main character is Paul Copeland, County Prosecutor of Essex, New Jersey. On the face of it he is an admirable character, successfully raising a child after the death of his wife, managing a fast developing career and totally honest and trustworthy. His court scenes are tremendous fun and he certainly fights to [...]

    6. Oh Harlan, you were exactly what I needed. But before I begin, let me say that this was my first Harlan Coben experience. I'll more than likely read more of his stuff. Bear with me as I explain myself. Okay, the writing was nothing spectacular; there were even times when I winced as he described something by using the item. Example: The great oak stood like a, well, great oak. Yes, this type of writing appears more frequently than I liked, but the writing is really not an issue with this type of [...]

    7. More like a 2.5, but I've read one previous Coben book, and I liked it a lot more. The author can clearly do better.I read this a month and a half ago, but I can barely remember any details. NOT a good sign!Lemme see what I can recall mmmm There's something about a series of killings at a teen summer camp coming back to haunt one of the camp counsellors (who's now a county prosecutor) 2o years later. The KGB might be involved. Various people who were thought to be dead or killed might still be a [...]

    8. This was my first Harlan Coben book and I thought it was just fabulous! I'm not huge into "mysteries" or "thrillers", but when I do sit down with one this is the type of story that has everything I want in a "page turner" - short chapters, quick dialog, twists and turns, and narration that was surprisingly funny at times (case in point, after annoying a police officer and a prosecutor both in a matter of hours the main character concludes, "I had itched an ass this morning and now I had burned a [...]

    9. Yep, Harlan Coben is officially the king of the twisty turns. I'm completely amazed how he can weave such a fascinating mystery that can change directions nearly every chapter. Even until the very end. Well done, sir!I also loved the witty dialogue. Some of the characters had me laughing out loud. And this subject matter was not light at all. Such a page turner. 5 stars!

    10. Cheat Sheet for Writing A Harlan Coben novel: -an event that happened a long time ago that affected the lives of the loved ones -one pretty hip guy who is quick with wit and sarcasm -main character must be a professional white male who helps inner-city black characters-it's ok to throw out all stereotypes possible, as long as the main character justifies it by performing his civic duty of helping them out -add a ballsy female side-kick, and give her at least one manly characteristic (if she's no [...]

    11. ‘I don’t understand. What makes you so sure your sister is alive?’‘I’m not sure,’ I said.‘But I think there’s a decent enough chance.’‘Why?’‘Because of Manolo.’‘What about him?’Yes. What about him? What about any of them? I don't know, but i'm not feeling this one. The Woods should be a gripping story but I just can't care for any of the characters. It's not that the writing is bad but the dialogues are making me feel sleepy. It's like the characters want to pretend [...]

    12. There were a lot of elements I appreciated within this novel. This is the 2nd book I've read by Harlan Coben, but surely not my last! Some surprisingly awesome twists and turns here & main character was great! Twisted right up to the end!!Narration Notation: This audiobook was narrated by Scott Brick, whom I happen to thoroughly enjoy. While the entire recording was not as high quality as his more recent narrations, whenever he received a phone call, it sounded right as if you were listening [...]

    13. Libro recomendado en el Club de Lectura (Temporada de Invierno: El libro invisible) del grupo La Cafetería de AudreyUn buen thriller, sin lugar a dudas. El autor escribe sin rodeos, directo y haciendo que los pensamientos de los protagonistas fueran concisos y claros. La lectura de este libro no se hace pesada en ningún momento, aunque sí debo reconocer que en algunos capítulos me preguntaba si lo que ocurría en ese momento influiría en los capítulos posteriores o si solo era relleno. Per [...]

    14. This book literally blew my mind! It kept me guessing through all the 442 pages. Yes! That's right, suspense grips the reader till the very last page. In the beginning you feel that the book is only about a murderer who killed 4 kids in a summer camp but Hell No! Paul Copeland was in the dark about a lot of things, like stuff about his mother and father and Ira and Lucy. The entire story gets twisted towards the end. The twists and turns are really unexpected and makes you want to read the book [...]

    15. I love some of Harlan Coben's books but IMHO this was not one of his bests. I think it could have been told without a lot of the twists that turned out to not be twists at all, just page fillers. I was attached to the main character in the beginning but became separated from him as the story went along, a little too sappy for me. Would have been a great mystery if it had stuck closer to the main story line.

    16. I read this book as a buddy read and also wanted to read it for TBR Takedown, but I did not make it for that. I knew that I would enjoy this book since it is by Harlan Coben, wow it was so engaging with such a great mystery plot line. Thoroughly loved this book.SynopsisTwenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. Two were found murdered, and the others were never seen again. Four families had their lives changed forever. Now, two decades later, they are about t [...]

    18. Now this was an excellent book!So many twists I didn't see coming. I thought the characters were upbeat and seemed completely real. The plot was great. At first, it seemed to me that it was going to be a typical suspenseful thriller, but the twists in the plot made it more, especially the ending. Did not see that coming!Excellent!

    19. I recommend this if you want a quick and good murder/ mystery many twists and turns that I didn't see coming!!! Fast paced so it keeps you interested

    20. I liked this book because it was a "couldn't put down" kind of book. I wanted to keep reading it to find out what's going on now. Paul Copeland is a County Prosecutor who along with his parents and sister Camille,were from Russia and moved to the US when Paul was 4 yrs old. In the present day-Paul is a widower and has a 6 yr old Daughter. Go back 20 yrs,when Paul was a teenager who helped out at a camp that the rich kids as well as the not to well off kids would spend their days in the summer. B [...]

    21. I accidentally started reading the abridged version of this book last month. It wasn’t very good and I thought it was me, my mood, something . . . Like most abridgments it left me confused, moved too fast and seemed to be missing the best parts. Characterization was not really there and Coben’s snarky humor was nary to be seen. After wasting four + hours I realized my stupid mistake and managed to track down the unabridged version at my library. It was read by the same narrator too, Scott Br [...]

    22. After his return to Myron Bolitar with PROMISE ME, Coben went back to standalone thrillers with this one. It was good, although I had some doubts about the characterization. I couldn't quite believe everything I read, even though the facts were consistent. I suspect that Coben knew that if he had done more to make the characterization of certain characters consistent and clearer, then it would have telegraphed the ending. But at this pace, who really cares about characterization. It's only in re [...]

    23. I love Harlan Coben's writing. You just turn and turn the pages and before you realize it you've read a 500 page book. This is the third novel I read by him and I have many more on my to read list. Paul is haunted by the events that took place in his life more than 20 years ago. His sister and 3 of her friends go into the woods near their summer camp and they never come out. But after all these years the past comes rushing back. I loved the book and even liked the ending. i think Harlan Coben mo [...]

    24. This is the first Harlan Coben book that I have read. It will not be my last because I am preparing to binge read a bunch of his books! I read this over the course of two days and could not put it down. This became a page turner for me and I enjoyed the plot twists and turns. He keeps them coming until the very last page. Just when I thought I had this book figured out, he turned the tables and pulled another one out of his hat. Did I mention that I love this in a book? Twenty years ago four tee [...]

    25. This was an unexpectedly entertaining page-turner, though towards the end, so many plot twists are woven together in an improbable climax and epilogue that my suspension of disbelief was tested a bit. However, getting there was fun in this combination courtroom drama and suspense thriller.Paul Copeland survived a summer camp massacre as a teenager. He and his girlfriend snuck off into the woods for a little nookie, only to hear the screams of three other kids — including Paul's sister — bein [...]

    26. Very good. A standout mystery thriller that keeps the twists and turns coming. Well developed characters that you can root for, but who are certainly not perfect. I found myself irritated at interruptions that kept me from turning the pages and I think that is a pretty good recommendation. I'd not previously read anything by Coben but I'll be looking for more.

    27. Harlan Coben's books have everything you would expect from a good Mystery writer, a good story, character development, a little humor, and a surprise ending! The Woods is about Paul Copeland, who's sister it down at a Summer camp, and walks into the woods with 3 other campers, and disappears without a trace along with another one of the campers, while the other 2 end up murdered. About 20 years later Paul who is not County Prosecutor and handling a case of his own, is approached by the Police wh [...]
