by Laura Dave
I Just finished reading “The Last Thing He Told Me” by Laura Dave. I thought it was amazing, one of the best books I have read this year. Definately Top Five on my list. I chose this book because it was highly recommended and I am so glad I did.
The story is about a woman whose name is Hannah. Her husband disappears without a trace leaving behind a note which asks Hannah to protect his daughter Bailey. What follows is a desperate journey to finding the truth about her husband and an ending that is both surprising and appropriate.
The author did an excellent job of hooking the reader and providing a history of Hannah and her husband through flashbacks. Her journey to find her husband was filled with mystery and intrigue which was resolved at a steady and consistent pace. The characters were flawed but rootable and that’s what I liked about the story. The way the characters interacted seemed natural and believable.
This novel showed the lengths that adults will go to in order to protect their children, and also the need that children have for stability and trust. It showed that people are not one dimensional that they can be good and bad at the same time.
There was enough mystery and intrigue that I read this book in less than two days. Well written well paced, interesting characters, great mystery, wonderful conclusion. Everything you could ask for in a psychological or mystery thriller.
A great read for lovers of this genre, and I will definately be reading this author again.
