Normally mystery thrillers don’t take me over a week. I tend to speed through them because I’m enjoying them so much. I did not feel this sentiment regarding In The Woods. I simply picked this up on a recommendation from a friend and because I want to watch The Dublin Murders. I could have just done fine with watching the television show, I’m sure.
There’s a lot of reviews about why this book is good. So if you want positive opinions, look for those. The writing isn’t bad, really. I enjoy thrillers a lot, but the storyline made me so bored. I spent nine days reading this book, and I still skimmed the last forty percent just to try and say I made it through. It could have been the narrator who was the problem, but I dreaded this book each time I picked it up. I can’t recall a book that took me so long and made me fall asleep so many times.
Everyone gets mad at the end of the book, but I didn’t know what happened til I saw a review. Also a few time I know didn’t like this book so I should have stopped while I was ahead, but I anticipated it was going to improve. I could have been reading so many other books the nine days I wasted on this, and it put me in a slump too. The worst one yet.
The big mystery is who killed Katy, but also what happened to two other young adults 20 years back. The mystery I wanted solved was never solved. So I waited for nothing. This book isn’t great. Rob was terrible. Cassie was ok. I do not get why this is a series. I didn’t talk about the plot because I don’t care enough to. Just watch the show, I’m betting it’ll be a lot better.
