Well written, but tedious
reviewed Hidden on
This was a great first novel and I am looking forward to another one of his novels. I think the plot could have been more developed and have more of a twist at the end to make it more of mystery than it ended up being. But overall a decent read.

"Hidden provides both the racing pulse pleasure of a thriller and the quieter deep waters of character driven fiction." This is from the Washington Post Book World. I agree with their assessment of this book. It slowly builds to an ending, which may or may not satisfy some, but the journey was enlightening.

An interesting book about a woman's past and her "memory" of a life-changing event. Written by a man, but told in a womans first person account. Done very well. I would recommend!

i should have known that when bohjalian gave this book such a glowing commendation it would be a dud.

lyrical? yes it was well written, prosaic even. and for a guy to write a woman's story? good effort - e for effort. i even thought the characters were well fleshed out.

but the story was lacking. ok, non-existent. a woman in a struggle inside her own head. she ends up coming back full circle to the beginning of her saga. there is no moral. there is no conviction or zeal. she just meanders through the grey matter of this book and we willingly follow.

and what the heck is so hidden?

i mean, after all of her struggle she shuffles off to an unplanned future - oh well, another lesson learned. i started out empathizing with her but in the end almost thought she got what she deserved for being so weak.

my recommendation - don't bother. if i could give this a negative star, i would.
