Description

She's disarmed by Floyd’s charm, but when she meets his young daughter, Poppy, Laurel is startled by her resemblance to Ellie.

As you may imagine Laurel is devastated, barely holding up but one day she meets Floyd at a cafe, sharing a carrot cake and the charming, mysterious, charismatic mathematician blows her mind. As soon as certain characters are introduced, I was thinking “ah, got it” and, unfortunately, I was right. Sharply written with twists and turns, it will please fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, or Luckiest Girl Alive.

I intended to spend 90 minutes reading on a weekend afternoon to have a relaxing break from some outside chores. This was a quick read but unlikable and ridiculous, hard to believe characters made it difficult for me to believe a word.

The book alternates between the present day life of Laurel (whose entire life was destroyed as a consequence of her daughter’s kidnapping) and the circumstances of Ellie’s kidnapping. And then one day, as she is slowly piecing her life back together, Laurel meets Floyd in a local cafe. A tasty, if not always tasteful, tale of supernatural mayhem that fans of King and Crichton alike will enjoy. The mendacious mercurial nature of some characters in this book will rattle you to the extent of even making you nihilistic. How can we understand that our partner is an ideal candidate for providing mutual love or unconditional love?From the ten-million-copy bestselling author comes a brand new look for this compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you hooked to the very last page. If you haven't managed to get your hands on a copy yet, then you'll want to make it a priority and here's why. There is an alternate ending for this novel available on the internet, which the author initially wrote and changed to the current conclusion based on the author's literary agents' advice. Someone once mooted the theory that Hanna felt too guilty to have a boyfriend because her little sister would never have one. But, finally, after years of just going through the motions of life, Laurel meets Floyd, a single dad with a young daughter named Poppy.

I think the author got the information from the Medical study conducted by the University of Rochester. Showboat Medical Examiner Margot Heavner makes it clear that, breaking with her department’s earlier practice ( The Bone Collection, 2016, etc. Publication information is for the USA, and (unless stated otherwise) represents the first print edition.His constant praise of how gorgeous and stunning and amazing Laurel is is nearly just as creepy as him keeping silent about Poppy. It's a very quick read - I read it in a single day - and it goes down smoothly and easily, but it is so easy to predict everything that will happen. But something isn’t quite right about Floyd, especially his relationship with his nine-year-old daughter, Polly. A very suspenseful story, with an underlying sense of creepiness, and a novel way of telling a story. Then She Was Gone was fine as an undemanding beach thriller, but I wouldn't recommend it for readers looking for something new and innovative.
