[October TBR #3]
Title: The Lost
Author: Natasha Preston
Genre: Thriller, Mystery
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
In this small town, there have been a series of incidents where children are running away from home. When Piper and Hazel decide they want to find out more about these mysterious disappearances, they bite off more than they can chew when they are now among those who are missing. Now what will these two do to survive this?
The main character was pretty much the only character actually doing anything. Piper literally carried Hazel on her back the entire time and she just got of scott free. This was such an injustice and just unfair to the main character in my opinion.
The twist at the end wasn’t a twist at all and was very obvious. In addition, none of our questions were answered. Like at all. Why are there rooms? Why did they do this and choose the people in their orders? Why did they leave doors open and flicker lights all the time? There is just a long list of unanswered questions that really leaves a sour taste in my mouth.
I loved how strong out main girl Piper is. She kept up with everything going on around her no matter what they threw at her. Her strength was quite courageousness and she was the only thing that kept me going through this book.
This was an interesting read, no doubt. This did let me down on the ‘game’ and ‘mysterious room’ aspect but it was still a different kind of mystery.
My similar recommendation for this novel would be The Assassin’s Game by Kirsty McKay.
