Hold Tight…

I had the chance this past week to continue through Harlan Coben’s books with Hold Tight (a stand-alone story).  This was not necessarily one of my favorites (but a good read nonetheless).  Coben usually does an amazing job of weaving different narrative streams throughout the book – only to wrap them up with a neat and tidy (and often shocking) bow.  Not the case here.  Hold Tight, at timesfeels forced and somewhat plain.
That being said, a couple of my favorite quotes can be found on Instagram.  Here is how I rank all of his books thus far…
  1. The Woods (2007):  Camp and the KGB 
  2. Tell No One (2001):  Emails and the Inner-City
  3. Fade Away (1996):  The New Jersey Dragons and Unrealized Dreams
  4. No Second Chance (2003):  Shattered Windows and the Serbian Underground
  5. Just One Look (2004):  Family Photos and Big Hair Bands
  6. Promise Me (2006):  Transcripts and Teachers
  7. One False Move (1998):  The New York Dolphins and Old Mentors
  8. Hold Tight (2008):  Parental Controls and Prescription Drugs
  9. The Innocent (2005):  Self-Defense and Camera Phones
  10. Back Spin (1997):  The PGA US Open and Mysterious Kidnappings
  11. Death Do Us Part (2006):  Vows and Vengeance
  12. Gone for Good (2002):  Covenant House and Childhood Bullies
  13. The Final Detail (1999):  The New York Yankees and Failed Drug Tests
  14. Darkest Fear (2000):  Paternity Suits and Plagiarism
  15. Drop Shot (1996):  The ATP US Open and Gang Violence
  16. Deal Breaker (1995):  The New York Titans and Magazine Advertisements
  17. Play Dead (1990):  The Boston Celtics and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
  18. Miracle Cure (1991):  The New York Knicks and HIV
I look forward to reading Long Lost at some point over my summer vacation – yet another stand-alone story.  Anyone read it yet?  If so, what did you think?
