GONE is one of those novels that gives the reader sweaty palms and a beating heart. It is gripping, exciting and the descriptions of 1990 North East England and the people who live there are dank, cold and fearful. The ‘scene’ and the characters are very well captured.
Lucas is a mean and brutal person, who doesn’t care about anything or anyone except himself.
Reading and getting involved with all of the characters left me with mixed emotions. One minute I hated them and the next I had some sort of empathy. Pity, sadness and sometimes just glad for their misery also went through my mind.
There is a ‘WHATTT’ moment and I had to re-read a page because I thought I had missed something. It is an amazing twist and one that I didn’t see coming.
GONE is just WOW.
Rebecca’s book is thrilling, frantic and completely sensational. It will leave you dazed and disturbed, but it simply is one to have on your bookshelf.
