    Three stars for an exceptional beginning that grabs you from anything else you wanted to do But unfortunately soon it becomes difficult to keep its promises It's not a mystery or a crime novel and it can't stand firmly as a psychological thriller

    This story is like spiraling down the rabbit hole I'll admit that for the first half of the book I really had no idea what was going on I couldn't figure out whether what I was reading was actually happening or was only happening within the mind of the character She from the beginning is portrayed as having psychological issues due to an abusive child hood home and a terrible incident which occurred during that time I've read other reviews and have discovered that many people disliked this book claiming that it was too confusing I can understand that but for me that helped hook me into the story I NEEDED to know what was happening I wanted to see in what direction this author was going Through out the book there is an uneasy creepy feeling of dread You just know the twist is there but can't uite put your finger on it The ending ties it all up nicelyIf you are debating reading this book because of the reviews claiming that the writing is poor then I assure you that is not the case The writing is very good and I felt the story line was uite clever in the way it was delivered That being said; violence rape and animal abuse are part of this story so if any of that is a trigger for you then you may want to pass this one by

    This is pretty bad due to either the original writing or the translation? Don't know which It just screams amateur The story is poorly portrayed the MC is either an idiot or perhaps merely learning disabled in which case please tell us the readers The 'suspense' is all over the place one moment laid on with a trowel the next exemplified by a diving loon Silly Silly Silly A woman loses her child and her husband or lover on a small island Her reaction is to get sick a lot feed her cat go to bed get up and eat then return to the island to look for them It's just not worth writing much than that I got one uarter of the way in and thought nah nothing about this is realistic including and even if it's got a 'supernatural' bent to itDNF but read enough to give it one starYes one star

    Greta her husband Alex and their daughter Smilla are all together in a boat rowing across a lake to a small island They are staying at a nearby cabin and taking an outing together Once they reach the shore Alex and Smilla decide to go investigate the island and walk away Greta stays behind in the boat Her husband and daughter never return She waitslooks for themthen rows back to the cabin looking for her cell phone They're gone No trace Greta isn't sure what to do She feels illtries to eatto sleep a littlethinks about calling the police Where are Alex and Smilla? As she tries to piece her thoughts together the chilling truth about Greta and her life begin to take form I listened to the audio book version of this novel At nearly 7 hours long the audio is excellent uality Tanya Eby narrates Her voice is easily understood and she reads at a perfect pace I listened to the entire book even though at times I really wanted to DNF and move on to something else I think if I had been reading the print book I wouldn't have made it to the end For me the story is just too disjointed The strangeness and non linear story is central to the plot it's just how this tale works for its effect But I didn't like it The plot develops too slowly It took so long for hints about reality to really start coming that I lost interest The main character comes off as annoying rather than someone I might sympathize with or care about Her behavior and actions are just too odd The constant whining throwing up and strangeness is off putting I really struggled to get through this story Does that mean it's a bad book? No It just means it isn't for me And it could also mean that the story lost something in translation to English I do understand that the story is about a woman's loss of reality and her rambling disjointed memories and understanding of her life and actions It just didn't work for me Too much rambling confusion and just bizarre weirdness from the main character not enough coherent story

    This book is a wild scary ride down a long hall filled with mirrored madnessGreta is a young Swedish wife vacationing with her handsome husband and adorable daughter They take a short afternoon boat ride to a nearby island Then Alex and little Smilla disappear over a hill and never return So Greta returns to the mainland and notifies the police right? No she returns to the mainland to retrieve her cellphone When her calls to Alex go unanswered she goes to sleep When she finally makes it to the police station the result is shocking to us but exactly what Greta expected Because Greta's life is filled with mysteriesWhat is it about Scandinavians that we find so fascinating? With the predominance of blonde hair and blue eyes glowing complexions and slender athletic figures they look like children from the Dawn of Time True their homelands are cold and barren but their society is well ordered and logical After centuries of producing some of the most fearsome warriors in human history they've denounced violence in favor of peace euality and fairnessBut violence is hard to eradicate and there's plenty of it in this story There's the careless emotional abuse of faithless spouses the mindless brutality of angry teens and the measured deliberate cruelties meted out by a charismatic sadist And as always violence begets violence as surely as night follows dayThe Scandinavians have also proudly promoted gender euality but eual education and professional opportunities can't erase the basic vulnerability of women to abuse And so this book is partly an examination of why some woman are vulnerable than others The narrator during most of the book Greta is a young woman whose family tragedies have left her uncertain and submissive Desperate for the affection she feels was denied her she's an easy targetBut what about her rival who picks up the narrative? We never learn what in her life made her agree to become a physical and emotional prisoner Could ANY woman be tricked into an abusive relationship? Is it just a matter of meeting the right sociopath?It's also a book about the motherdaughter relationship which seems unbreakable no matter how rocky it looks or feels Motherhood especially of a daughter makes a woman vulnerable to abuse but it can also give her the courage to do what she has to do to get free of an abusive relationship One of the women in this book did just that and has no regrets One is determined to free herself and the fate of the third remains in doubtI don't normally like psychological thrillers and it's impossible to say why this one grabbed me All I know is that I started reading it and when I finished it I realized that I had left my chair four times twice to get tea and twice to visit the bathroom The first few chapters were confusing but once I got into the story I couldn't stop readingIt could be called melodramatic but I'd argue with someone who denounced it as unbelievable It's important to remember that the author is trying to get inside the mind of an emotionally fragile individual Greta bears the scars of childhood trauma and her instability has been heightened by the clever manipulation of the person who now controls her life It's impossible to demonstrate irrational fears and obsessions WITHOUT being over the top dramaticSo could it happen? I'm reminded of an incident several years ago when a celebrity marriage imploded and there were rumors of violence Amidst the staunch denials on both sides one of the wife's countrymen commented admiringly She fought back like a brave Swedish girl Sounds like the wild Viking blood lives on

    This was one of the options for the Kindle First book this month On reading the synopsis it sounded like a psychological thriller that was right up my alley a woman goes to an island with her husband and young daughter The husband and daughter go exploring the woman stays in the boat the husband and daughter never returnIt promises twists than a labyrinth that much is true Unfortunately each twist is ludicrous than the last After a really promising first chapter the book descended into pantomime and by the time I got to the part with the children particularly the girl's name I had gone full ChloeThe lead character is one of the most unreliable irritating lying narrators I've ever come across As a result I spent the middle part of the book wondering if any of it was actually happening In fairness it did pick up a little towards the end but at that point I just wanted to finish it Not an enjoyable read at all and definitely not what it seems

    Lightning review at Smart Bitches Trashy BooksI’d really like to write a longer review of The Missing by Caroline Eriksson because it’s a superb psychological thriller but in order for readers to perfectly get the story I can only talk about the novel superficially This book is all about fascinating layers but they really need to unfold for readers organicallyI was pulled into the mystery immediately and unexplained vanishings are totally my catnip but as the book unfolds I became absolutely addicted It turns out Greta has a complicated past–she tells us her father disappeared too And Greta isn’t behaving like I’d expect someone to given the situation She isn’t calling the police but rather is searching herself while becoming increasingly untetheredI can’t say about this book without ruining it but I can say that it offers some excellent Not Sorry Not Sorry Female Rage as well as reflection on the relationships women have with their mothers Trigger warnings need to be issued for depictions of domestic violence and animal abuse the latter happens off screen but I found it deeply troublingThe Missing is a dark dark book but a deeply satisfying one It’s the sort of book I desperately want to talk to someone about–but I have to wait for them to read it first It’s worth not being spoiled Elyse

    I raced through the first part of this book and by the time I stopped listening I realized it had been 5 hours and I was 75% done I usually only listen to 2 hours maximum before I feel the need to take a break but I was so involved in the story I didn't even notice Unreliable narrators are one of my favorite story elements and Greta is unreliable in spades It's not clear what is going on or what Greta's exact issue is but it's obvious that she is not reacting to events like a normal rational person To tell you too much would spoil the story so I'll leave it at that I will note that there is some violence to animals and although we only see the aftermath it is disturbing I listened to the audio version and the narration was very good There were a few mispronounced words that I noticed but overall it was well done

    This one was hard for me to get into For being as short as it was it took me a long time to read I was pretty confused for the first half and then things started getting sorted out There was some graphic random? sexual abuse of some characters I also thought the whole teenage gang thing random The last 20% sort of tied it all up and created a sense of understanding but mostly I was glad it was over Not the worst book I have read but not one I will remember either

    I downloaded this as a free book from The premise of the book had me intrigued even though it's not something that I would naturally have chosen It was a surprising page turner and was almost like a whodunit as I was constantly re evaluating the storyline and what I considered must have happened in the past Thoroughly recommend
