Book Review – Fiction: Home by Harlan Coben

Did I set out earlier this year to read the entirety of Harlan Coben’s Myron Bolitar series, including the YA trilogy starring Myron’s nephew Mickey?


Did I recently finish the last one, #14, titled Home?

Also yes.

I love this whole entire series, but, to me, Home is the absolute pinnacle of this set of books.

Naturally, this book has excellent writing as you would expect from a Harlan Coben novel, but the level of suspense and doubt you carry while reading lasts until the last page.  Literally, there’s a twist in the last paragraph!  I spent the entire time thinking I knew what was going on, and I was rarely right.

Even though this is the FOURTEENTH book, I was never once bored and every page seemed exciting.

I sincerely hope this isn’t the last we see of Myron, (my next TBR is Win, and I’m unsure if Myron makes an appearance there) but I hope Mr. Coben brings him back, along with Win, Esperanza, Big Cindy, Mickey, and Ema.  I’d love to go on another adventure with this crew.

Back Cover Copy of Home:

A decade ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom, then went silent. No trace of the boys ever surfaced. For ten years their families have been left with nothing but painful memories and a quiet desperation for the day that has finally, miraculously arrived: Myron Bolitar and his friend Win believe they have located one of the boys, now a teenager. Where has he been for ten years, and what does he know about the day, more than half a life ago, when he was taken?

And most critically: What can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his missing friend? Drawing on his singular talent, Harlan Coben delivers an explosive and deeply moving thriller about friendship, family, and the meaning of home.
