Harlan Coben's YA Novel SHELTER
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (2)

Finished this one rather quickly on Sunday night.

I love Harlan Coben's novels; I enjoy the contrived twists and turns of his plots, the way the past echoes forward into the present, the way his characters seem to respond to the unusual challenges presented by the situations. His YA novel, Shelter, is a similar experience to his adult novels.

I thought the subject matter, which tied into Nazi concentration camp survivors and into his last Myron Bolitar novel (the main character of Shelter is Myron's nephew Mickey Bolitar), was a little deep for young readers. I don't think my kids would quite get it yet. So they won't be reading it quite yet. But for me as an adult, I really thought it was pretty neat the way everything started to shake out.

I can see sequels coming on this one from a mile away, though. But I'll be there to read them.
