Thank you to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for providing an ebook copy in exchange for an honest review!
This book has something really unique about it. All the Missing Girls is a mystery/thriller that is told IN REVERSE. Woah! Somehow the story going backwards only adds to the suspense. I'll be honest this is the main reason that I wanted to read the book. I just wanted to see if it could be done and done well. Which I'm happy to say it was done very well!
Everything about All the Missing Girls was right on for me. I liked the setting of Nic going back to her hometown and the town was written very vividly for me. I liked the atmosphere of this small town and it suited the story. The characters were also vivid for me and I could really picture what they were like. I'm not sure if anyone was really LIKEABLE, but I didn't hate anyone either. I will say that I did root for people that I probably shouldn't root for. I have to admit, I love books like that.
Other than the unique way this story was told, this story also had some good twists. I was kept on edge the whole time and anxiously awaiting the ending! I couldn't wait to get to the end and have all the answers revealed. This is definitely a book that holds your attention.
Overall All the Missing Girls is a superb mystery/thriller! I've really been in the mood for this genre and this one hit the spot. The backwards format is unique, it has intriguing flashbacks, suspense, and the atmosphere was perfect. This novel is certainly worth the read!!
I recommend this one to all mystery/thriller fans!! I think most mystery/thriller fans will either love this one or at least enjoy it enough that it's worth checking out.
