Book Review #441 - Run by Gregg Olsen


What if you discovered that everything you thought you knew about yourself was a lie? 

Rylee is fifteen. She comes home from school one afternoon to find the most shocking thing possible - her father dead, with a knife through his heart, and a key clutched in his hand. Her mother's purse is on the counter, but she appears to be long gone. A message in blood is written on the floor... RUN.

With her brother in tow, Rylee begins a dark journey, one that will uncover horrific and chilling crimes and lead her to an unexpected and gruesome discovery about her real father and what - or who - is behind his insatiable desire to kill. By the journey's end Rylee's childhood is a long way behind her...

My Rating: 4.5/5

I received this book for review from Five Mile Press

This book was very gripping and thrilling from the very first page and didn't let up throughout.

The plot was very fast paced and was filled with so many twists and turns it was very hard to predict where it was going. 

The realistic nature of the characters (especially Rylee) grounded the unbelievability of the plot at times. 

I liked this book a lot more than I thought I would considering the fact that it is classified under a genre I don't often read.
