Description

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Best-selling psychological suspense and a top Richard & Judy selection.

She was 15, her mother's golden girl. 

She had her whole life ahead of her. 

And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.

Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet.

But what really takes her breath away is when she meets his nine-year-old daughter.

Because his daughter is the image of Ellie.

Now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back.

What really happened to Ellie? And who still has secrets to hide?

The art of creating round characters ...

… is something Lisa Jewell has no knowledge of. Throughout this story, whose plot is rather strange and a little far-fetched, characters act in a way that does not seem to be consistent. Floyd, for example, does nothing that I would call 'bad' in this story, but is in the end depicted as a kind of villain with a bad aura (ugh!). To my mind he acts rather honorably throughout the story (except for killing Noelle in a rage, but that is the one thing that is totally credible, I felt like killing her as well). Laurel is never depicted as a very good-looking, very desirable woman, but is in the end described as such. Both Laurel and Paul turn out to be quite well off, but at the start money problems are mentioned. All this is not consistent. The author seems to twist the characters so as to fit her improbable story. On the whole, not a success.

Loved the characters

This is my first book by Lisa Jewel, but it definitely won't be my last. What stood out most for me was her brilliant use of different character voices and timelines when telling the story. Although I knew quite early on what the big twist would be, I became invested in all the characters and had problems putting down the book to deal with real life.

I really liked Laurel, even though she was grieving the disappearance of her daughter, she was brave, funny and always wiling to admit her mistakes. It loses a star because the ending was too perfect for my taste.

I listened to the audio and the narrator, Gabrielle Glaister, and she did an excellent job, especially with Laurel and and Noelle. I'm very happy to see that she is also the reader for a few other Lisa Jewell books.

If you are in the mood for a mystery, I highly recommend Then She Was Gone

Interesting book

Had no idea how this book would end, which is always a good thing. Interesting to listen and was surprised in the end. Would recommend!

Far fetched but enjoyable

As with many of the reviews here, the book was entertaining and I was very keen to find out what happened, but the author was so keen to leave the reader feeling satisfied at the end of the book, that it was tied up with too many unbelievable pieces. So yes, I feel satisfied, but it was definitely at the sacrifice of the believability of the story. Would prefer something more realistic, even if it means leaving me with a bit more anguish.

tragic story naively written

personalities don't fit with actions.
the design of story development is very simple minded.
disappointing

Very predictable storyline

The writing is ok, the story however is very basic. There was nothing that I couldn’t predict from start to end. Disappointing overall. The narration is however great, which kept me going until the end.

Not a mystery

I assumed , going into this book, that it would be kind of a mystery, thriller etc. because that is the category i found it in. From the description of the book you can get a good idea of the plot. After a couple chapters, you can predict it entirely. This was of course something that bothered me, as a mystery fan, but i felt i got an interesting book about people and personal stories instead.

Überzeugende 3,5 *

Ich hatte mal wieder Lust auf einen Psycho-Thiller und bin den `good-reads`-Empfehlungen gefolgt. Hat sich gelohnt. Das Buch war mein erstes und nicht mein letztes von L.J.
Die Geschichte ist irgendwie schon mal da gewesen und der Klappentext erzählt schon sehr viel. Trotzdem bleibt die Spannung bis zum Schluss und lässt den Hörer aufgewühlt zurück. Die Protagonisten sind individuell gestaltet, deren Gedanken und Handlungen sind hachvollziehbar. Zunächst wird die Geschichte aus der personalen Perspektive erzählt, später kommen die Ich-Erzählperspektiven dazu, wodurch der Hörer mehr weiß, als die einzelnen Personen. Das finde ich für einen Thriller, der Spannung erzeugen soll, etwas kontraproduktiv. Ich hätte es bevorzugt genau so viel zu wissen, wie Laurell. Trotzdem war das Buch doch spannend und mitreißend.

somewhat predictable

Gabrielle Glaister did an excellent job!
Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the author of this book.
At chapter 6 I'd already figured out the plot.
Shame really.

Tooooo predictable

I was hoping for an exciting twist in the end, which sadly didn't come ...
