Share on: But you know how it is, what with one thing and another and a bulging pile of books to be read and reviewed, I just somehow hadn't managed to give him my full attention. Until now. To say that I can't believe I waited this long and that I could kick myself for missing out would be to state it too plainly to you because Harlan Coben has just shot straight into the top three of my top ten favourite authors of the genre. And I am picky about these things! By way of background, Tell No One , from what I understand, was actually Coben's first standalone novel as his prior offerings formed part or parts of the massively successful Myron Bolitar series. Initially released sometime in and now thankfully, or I might still have Coben on my 'to be read' list re-released because a small but prestigious film company French, I think has made a movie version of the book it would appear Coben also had quite a hand in the production, writing the screenplay and parts of the script the tale opens upon the blissfully happily married couple that is Dr David and Elizabeth Beck, as they visit a secluded lakeside retreat to conduct the annual ritual of celebrating their first kiss some thirteen years earlier.
I'm almost annoyed that no-one told me what an utterly fantastic and amazingly talented writer Harlan Coben is. I mean, I know it all boils down to taste, but I have read so many mediocre thriller novels that I feel a bit cheated! Harlan Coben, just where have you been all my life? Tell No One dishes up torsional drama from the first page and then latterly, with the initial murder out of the way and with the scene carefully set for the calm before the storm, Coben goes about introducing us to an eclectic procession of goodies and baddies.
His protagonist, Beck, is immensely likeable. Ditto his best friend, Shauna and his goody-twice-shod sister, Linda. As such, these characters stand as a wonderful, even contrast to the motley crew of miscreants and maladjusts and we can rest assured that said malefactors each possess a unique talent that will guarantee the reader a jolt of pure pandemonium from the get-go. Even the Feds and there had to be a couple of Feds don't disappoint as Coben describes them as taking Beck by surprise in their total replication of their fictional television counterparts; I find this a delicious writing trait as it makes a character so easy to imagine and an almost guilty, lazy pleasure for the reader to mentally flesh out the story that is now going on in their heads.
Anyway, in spite of the rip-roaring pace of the tale Coben somehow manages to maintain momentum whilst swapping from first person to third person. As a strategem, using Beck in the first person attaches you to him more emotionally, which is fundamental to his nice-guy persona.
Coupled with the smooth transition out to third person, we can clearly see Coben's talent as a writer - to do that without creating even a teaspoon of underlying confusion, is in no small way challenging. In summary, as I have raved on for quite long enough, Tell No One is simply an awesome read. I loved it and could not put it down and found myself staying up far later than is strictly advisable, necessary or healthy to reach the final page, which - by the way - has the most gobsmacking final pike and tuck in the story that caught me completely off-guard.
I must recommend Tell No One to you in spades and if you have not read it already, go out and buy it today.
I'm not sure I want Harlan Coben to rub shoulders on my mental bookshelf with anyone that is not worthy so I am selecting my recommendations to you with caution. Tell No One is indeed a twining tale and with that in mind, perhaps you should take a look at Ravens by George Dawes Green and similarly, the hardhitting but somehow very lovely Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn which in fact received very high praise from Coben himself.
Along the same lines, you might also enjoy The Deceived by Brett Battles which whilst not quite as gripping, is certainly worth a peek. I disagree. This book was horrible. However, all along, I noticed the bad writing, the improbable plot twists which never seemed to end, and the completely contrived situations to help set up those plot twists.
For example, having Dr. Beck take care of and befriend a black thug drug dealer's son only so that this same black thug could be his back up man later on?
Wow, that was SO predictable and so lame. Then the whole idea of his wife's disappearance being turned on it's head just did NOT seem realistic.
If they were so in love and so in tune, I just don't think it would have happened the way it did It was as if Coben was paranoid that not enough excitement existed in the book so he had to keep throwing stuff at the book, everything but the kitchen sink.

Nov 07, P rated it really liked it Shelves: First of all, I'd like to say that I had avoided reading it for too long until I had a chance to try it, then I couldn't putting it down even I had a lot of work this week. Tell No One has a straightforward narration. We believed wholeheatedly about what the author tried to tell, but after that, he revealed a distrustful evidence making us reconsider our thought again and again till the end.
And this is what makes the book so special for me. The good ones most of all. He surprsied me with many twists, and the whole plot was thoroughly planned. Coben successfully stuck me with the emotion that left me wanting to read crime novels again this year.
And now I'm irrevocably a fan of him! After he digs into the evidences of his wife and is aware that maybe she's still alive, the book leaps to the highest tempo because of his mind and my suspicion that craving some answers, and you have no idea how much that feeling hit my brain so many times until I promised my self I had to finish this book before midnight. Tell No One also has thrilling vibes and action scens, too, so you don't have to worry that it will bore you to death.
Harlen Coben will be the first author, from now on, when I think of crime novels, I'll pick his other books without hesitation. Thai review: With Coben, it's very hard to review a book without mentioning spoilers. If I wrote what I want to write, my review would look like a heavily redacted top secret file.
So, I will just hit on some key points: Very mysterious and entertaining. If you like other Coben, you will lime this. Not to bad, just part of all the twists and turns Coben always throws in. Not too complex, in fact they are basically caricatures, but really fun to With Coben, it's very hard to review a book without mentioning spoilers.
Not too complex, in fact they are basically caricatures, but really fun to see how they all take part in the story. Oh no! I've just rated a Harlan Coben book only three stars! I found it hard to give time to this book as it's a busy time of year and a busy household. Of course this has nothing to do with the book. I liked this one, didn't love it, and only really wanted to see what happened. I didn't love the ending, there was so much going on.
Maybe I had to think too hard! I still think he's an amazing writer. Can't love them all, huh?! I really do like his work: If you cross the street to a Oh no!
If you cross the street to avoid a gang of black teens, you're racial profiling; if you see the gang and think nothing whatsoever, you're from some planet I've never visited. Women carrying too many bags. Kids who probably should have been in school leaned against whatever was available, some cooler than the next. View all 11 comments.
It was selected as the book for group discussion in one of my groups and was highly touted. I had a really tough time putting this book down for interruptions sleep, errands, meals, etc.
You think you know who the good guys are, only to be disappointed at a later juncture. Even the good guys are presented with moral dilemmas where they make dicey choices and you question your own self as to whether you would have done things differently.
Here you have a man who's done nothing but the right things expected of him and in the space of 24 hours is consorting with people and doing things he would never have considered as an option the day before.
The story kept me off balance the entire time and the twist at the end really caught me off guard, just when I believed I had everything sorted out. I certainly did. View all 13 comments. May 20, Sumit RK rated it liked it. As a mystery thriller, Tell No One delivers nonstop from start to the end.
Right from the impactful start, there is never a dull moment in the story. The protagonist, Beck and the rest of characters along with a string of bad guys are mostly well written. During the long winded final act, As a mystery thriller, Tell No One delivers nonstop from start to the end.
During the long winded final act, the story introduces a series of twists and turns, which almost ruins the entire story for you. If you like twists and turns,unlikely heroes and page turning action, you will enjoy this. Jun 09, Carol rated it really liked it Shelves: This was my 1st HC novel which made me seek out and read the rest of his books.
Great suspense and a fast read! Highly recommend. Feb 05, Melisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: So good. And I will explain my ridiculous rating too. I don't think I've ever read a book that left me guessing so much. Literally to the last page.
Any book that can stump me like that is a winner in my book. It was so full of suspense and twists and turns, one of the best thrillers I've read.
It would make a great movie too. I just can't believe no one fact checked the historical reference to the architect Stanford White! Not a spoiler.

This is not Coben's best; perhaps one of his subcontracted works, Still, I kept reading because I didn't really know what was going on and there was enough sustained tension.

I can't say that anything about this felt genuine or that I particularly cared about any of the characters, it's just not that kind of book. What kept me hooked was the craft of the mystery and all the mini-reveals that evolved in an exciting and punchy way.

The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive. Everyone tells him it's time to move on, to forget the past once and for all.

Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible--that somewhere, somehow, Elizabeth is alive.
Beck has been warned to tell no one. And he doesn't.
