    1. I am not ashamed to say that I am one of Harlan Coben s loyal fans I love his fast paced, all engrossing mystery suspense thrillers He is my go to when I just want to forget about my crappy life and read about someone else s crappy life These stories remind me how things could be so much worse Coben has mastered the art of convincing people the ones we love the most just might not be who we think they are or they may harbor some type of secret that could shatter our lives and cause everything to [...]

    2. I am a huge fan of Harlan Coben My favorite, like everyone else, is the Myron Bolitar series Just the best This one is a stand alone suspense novel that fully delivers in true Coben style Can you keep a secret Not if The Stranger is nearby There is a man, who refers to himself as The Stranger, traveling the country revealing everyone s darkest secrets The consequences can destroy families The focus is on Adam and his wife Corinne The stranger approaches Adam one evening to reveal a secret his wi [...]

    3. The Hook My number came up on the reserve list at the library and I thought Why not The Line Feeding teenage boys was like filling a bathtub with a grapefruit spoon The Sinker The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store His identity is unknown His motives are unclear His information is undeniable Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world If that isn t an intriguing blurb [...]

    5. I gave this book 2 stars for 2 reasons 1, the author was Harlan Coben whom I love and 2, it kept me needing to finish it to find out how the ridiculous plot and storyline ended It was like watching a train wreck you know you don t want to look, but you have to This was by far the WORST Harlan Coben novel I have ever read and I finished it The storyline was convoluted, the characters were unbelievable and the ending was so perfectly tied up it almost made the book a joke However, I will continue [...]

    6. 4.5 starsHarlan Coben is a favorite author of mine I was really looking forward to this book.The book was even better than what I had hoped for I only started reading his books a year or so ago and I am so happy I found him I would suggest starting this book if you have a bit of time on your hands as it s very hard to put down once you start Just when I thought I figured out where the plot was going I was surprised again Fast paced and easy to read but with fantastic twists and turns.Highly reco [...]

    7. This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.4.5 Stars I have been a fan of Harlan Coben for a very long time I have read almost every book that he has published and I have been lucky enough to meet him twice I am always eager to get my hands on any new book that has his name on the cover I realize that I expect a lot out of a Harlan Coben book I not only expect not only to be entertained but to be completely sucked into the story having no idea what twists will happen next This book wa [...]

    8. I am a big fan of Harlan Coben, so I was anxious to listen to this book Now, the premise of this book is that a stranger shows up in town, tells you a secret about your family member and then disappears And he does this over and over again For example, Adam Price learns that his wife of 18 years faked a pregnancy two years previously Ok, I can understand why he would be upset But I had trouble with the idea that she would bother I could have bought into it if she had done it to hook him into mar [...]

    9. Wow another great book from Harlan Coben, if you are a fan of his this one will not let you down We are taken straight into a world full of suspence, excitement and tension, just the way I like it Great plot and characters that were well developed, you felt like you actually got to know them.How would you react if you were sitting there, minding your own business, and then someone aka The Stranger sits down next to you and says something that will dramatically change your life and make you quest [...]

    10. Well, Mr Secret Revealer This quote from dialogue between a victim and the titular character bears repeating Well, Mr Secret Revealer This is not a line in a romantic comedy nor a line offering comic satiric relief in an otherwise serious novel No Instead, and I am not joking, this line is a direct quote taken from serious dialogue in what was intended to be a suspenseful scene I acknowledge I m partly to blame for my inability to overlook scat left floating in the pool of important dialogue It [...]

    11. I am a fan, generally speaking, of this author I havent loved EVERYTHING but for the most part I never fail to get a darned good yarn when I pick up a Harlan Coben novel I was especially fond of the Myron Bolitar series and his standalone books always have a gorgeously twisted centre to them, a mysterious edge that means you cannot help getting involved.With The Stranger I was utterly hooked I read it all yesterday, a one sitting read well interspersed with real life stuff like feeding the kids [...]

    12. 2.5 Meh Just too typical and over stocked with the all too common over stretched ending In particular a main character is referred to as The Stranger which struck me as rather silly I kept thinking of stranger danger and the shadow knows Pretty much only read the dialog the last quarter of the book in a quest for closure It left me feeling as lukewarm as this review and obviously outside of the pack with my rating.

    13. Originally posted on The Book NymphoSomeone, a stranger, approaches Adam Price and tells him something provocative about his wife, Corinnea secret she s kept from him And so begins a story of deception, mystery and conspiracies that escalate dangerously I was immediately drawn into this story, even though much of what we know about all the players is learned after the initial conflict Determining who s lying, telling the truth or just being deceptive was made much difficult until I could burrow [...]

    14. Secrets.everybody has them But there are those individuals who store past actions in a dusty locked box away from prying eyes Feeling safe Not necessarily.The Stranger begins with a beckoning premise What if someone is privy to that stored information Just how far would the concentric circles from the thrown stone extend Harlan Coben presents the supposition of how safe is safe Technology allows us access to gazillions of bits of information Social media spreads nuggets of background info like n [...]

    15. WHO IS THE STRANGER WHY DOES HE TELL ADAM PRICE A DEVASTING SECRET ABOUT HIS WIFE that s what we want to know, I could not stop reading this book I think Harlan Coben is at the top of his game with this one his characters are strong the plot outstanding I was gripped by every chapter the tension kept building up to a peak then bang were off again.He is the master of the twist that you didn t see coming I think he is a very highly talented author that keeps up the pace.What we have in this story [...]

    16. Harlan Coben has been one of my favorite mystery writers , but I was disappointed with this book I understand I am in the minority here as most readers have rated it highly I found the many supporting characters lacked sufficient development to make them interesting to me Coben is the master of suspense and surprising twists, but thought it lacked character development You may guess the direction it is going from the Gone Girl story, and you may be wrong.

    17. Harlan Coben s thriller, The Stranger, is a terrific fast paced book Coben, a favorite author of mine, has come up with an interesting novel about web based secrets Out of nowhere a stranger approaches Adam Price and tells him about a devastating secret that his wife, Corinne, has kept from him Then all hell breaks loose First his wife takes off and a lot of surprises follow Interesting is all the characters in the book trying to maintain the American Dream.Although not Coben s best, it s quite [...]

    18. It s impossible to say why THE STRANGER stands out as one of Harlan Coben s best works without giving away too much So here s what I can say It has all the trademark stuff that brings you back to his books a good, decent guy from Jersey, natch whose world is turned upside down, dangerous secrets, plenty of nice twists provided by technology and the internet But on top of familiar landscape, THE STRANGER lays down surprising and risky layers that pay off in spades, putting it right up there with [...]

    19. 4.5 sAdam Price was minding his own business, waiting for the results to see if his son had made the team, enjoying a beer when he heard a quiet voice in his ear astounded he turned around The stranger had news to impart shocking words which were destined to shatter the family unit he was secure in had been secure in for many years His wife Corinne, sons Ryan and Thomas and he were extremely happy with their lives was it all about to come to an end Adam was sure what he d been told wasn t true b [...]

    20. Adam Price has it all, the beautiful wife, two boys he dotes on, a house in the right part of town and a well paid job as an attorney He s living the dream Then one night a stranger sidles up beside and whispers something in his ear The nightmare has begun.I ve read quite a few Coben thrillers over the years and have found the quality to be variable from the excellentTell No One to the direThe Woods I d picked this one up cheaply some while ago and was prepared to ditch it if it didn t grab my a [...]

    21. 3.25 StarsAdam Price, attorney, has a beautiful wife, Corinne, and two sons Thomas and Ryan who excel on the Lacrosse field and off He has a good thing going Until he doesn t The Stranger brings it all to a crashing end when he reveals Corinne s well kept secret.In this cat and mouse tale, Adam s low key reaction regarding his missing wife seems discordant, but, in the end, perhaps his lack of concern speaks to the crux of Corinne s deception And, as is often the way with fanatics, The Stranger [...]

    22. Well, the first thing I ll say is wow It s been a long time since I really, really didn t want to put a book down and even longer when I actually put off something important like cooking dinner so I could have a few minutes to read Okay, you say, then why just 4 stars In fact, the dropping of the 5 star rating was decided somewhere around the 80% mark all the loose ends were tied up neatly by the end, as far as I could tell, but somehow the final package wasn t quite as satisfying or believable [...]

    23. Adam Price, husband and father of two sons Ryan and Thomas attends the youth lacrosse team draft in his New Jersey town to make sure Thomas makes it onto the premier team Just before the draft begins a young man who identifies himself as the stranger tells Adam that his wife Corinne faked her recent pregnancy and miscarriage Shocked, Adam finds proof and when Corinne returns from a teacher conference in Atlantic City confronts her Corinne basically admits the deception and asks for a day to expl [...]

    24. Another great read by Harlan Coben This outstanding stand alone novel is action packed and I felt the need to finish it in almost one sitting I really enjoy the way he writes with a touch of humour and lots of action intermingled with twists and turns A must read for his fans but I really do recommend his books to any mystery thriller reader.

    25. Being a huge fan of Harlan Coben, the long waiting list from the library for the ebook version of Stranger was painful, but expected Its now at 169 people waiting so it looks like I jumped on the bandwagon at the right time While this certainly wasn t one of his best books that I ve read, it certainly doesn t disappoint.With his usual style he draws you in with solid characters and story lines that keep you guessing and wanting to know The pace is perfect, never dragging on, sharing just enough [...]

    26. When the pretty wife of attorney Adam Price disappears after an unresolved confrontation regarding a big lie, he seeks out to locate the mysterious stranger who divulged the secret to him discovering a conglomeration of deceitful and ruthless characters.Although not my favorite COBEN novel the Myron Bolitar series remains top dog for mepun intended this super fast paced and engaging mystery was entertaining and filled with a multitude of surprising secrets

    27. Coben has done it again Another fast paced mystery with a 180 head spin at the end This novel really makes you think about the American Dream and the secrets that our neighbors might harbor Great novel and I look forward to of his Where does he get these great ideas

    28. This was a 3.5 star read I find myself at that place again the one where I look for that perfect ratio balance between readability and memorability is that even a word.This was 5 star readability but will I recall much of it a month from now Doubt it It was formulaic in that most comforting of ways one I often seek after a tough work week where I do everything the author is wanting me to doI ask myself the right questions at the right points in the book, I puzzle over the whodunnit, I come up wi [...]

    29. Adam Price is living the American dream, happily married to a woman he loves, two handsome sporty boys, nice house in a peaceful American town That is until The Stranger comes up to him and whispers a secret in his ear that will threaten everything he holds dear This was another excellent mystery from the master storyteller Harlan Coben The Stranger is a spooky character who goes around wrecking people s lives by telling them secrets about their loved ones Who is he and why does he do this These [...]

Adam finds out from a stranger that his wife has deceived him and after he confronts her with it, she goes missing While he s trying to figure out who the mysterious stranger is and where his wife has gone, the stranger has a hand in multiple other such revelations and blackmail schemes What would you risk to keep your perfect life perfect I was reading two other books at the time that this one came in at the library for me Those other books were really good, too, but once I read just a few page [...]
