Here and Gone is a suspense novel that is sure to get your heart pounding! I thought that the premise was incredibly spooky because it’s so realistic.
My Thoughts on Here And Gone by Haylen Beck
As with any great thriller, my review will be rather short to avoid giving too much away. Even so, please still proceed with caution!
Phew, this book doesn’t hold back at all! The main action starts in just the first ten pages and doesn’t let up until the very end. Between all of the action and the wonderful writing style, I couldn’t put this book down!
The characters were developed so well! While I absolutely loved many of them, I totally despised others, but in a great way. The bad/creepy characters were incredibly unsettling. I got chills so many times when they would just repeat themselves before I really understood what was going on. One character really surprised me with her role, but it was a very welcomed twist at that point in the book!
What really added to the depth of this book was the organization. Most of the book was centered around Audra or Sean and Louise, but some chapters focused on a few of the other characters to really draw everyone together and show the reader the full scope of what was going on. All of this was also supported by eerie emails from the dark net users.
My Favorite Passages from Here And Gone
Every breath he took now felt like a debt to her, as if the five years between here and there were simply borrowed. God, he missed her and his daughter like they were bones ripped from his body. Especially nights like this, when all he had were the ghosts in his head.
“It’s terrible. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. I mean, this little town, what’s left of it, biggest news is if someone farts in public.”
