As usual, Harlan Coben has written a wild ride of a book. Run Away hits you right from the beginning and holds on tight until the very end (it slows down a bit towards the middle, but the pace picks right back up).
“It was his fault, wasn’t it? Of course it had to be in some way. The butterfly effect. Change one thing, you change everything.”
There are so many twists and turns that dismantled the many theories I had about where the story was going. And where it ended up? Whoa. This book is DARK. It might be a bit far-fetched and a little crazy, but that didn’t spoil my enjoyment of it.
“There’s part of everybody that’s hidden.”
I honestly couldn’t read this fast enough – I devoured it in less than 24 hours. It’s a fun, thrilling read, with a heartbreaking theme of parental love. What would a parent do to save their child? How far would they go?
