Alrite, I was given this book to read. I would recommend this book if you like a lot of details, sometimes I felt lost in the book due to all the descriptions. I mean really how many times do you need to describe a sunset???
however the story line is great the ending leaves you with so many questions.

This was not, admittedly, my kind of book. I read about half of it, which was compelling enough (how can you NOT wonder what happens to a child who disappears?) and moderately well written. But then I got tired of the plot and the characters, none of whom I really liked. The ending was downright ridiculous.

ABsolutely hated this book. The author went on and after page...chapter after chapter about the main character looking for this child. It was also downright unbelievable. I think the book was edited by an summer, high school intern at the publishing house. It was horrible.

Year of Fog had some interesting facts about memory, missing children and surfing. However, can't say I enjoyed it all that much. It seemed to bogg down in the middle but did picked up at the end. Some books would be better a little shorter and this was one of them.

Pretty suspensful. I thought the author jumps around too much but, other than that, it was a good read. A great ending!!

I really liked No One You Know, so I jumped at the chance to read this one. I thought the plot was interesting, and though I didn't love any of the characters, I did enjoy them for the simple fact they weren't cookie cutter people you could transplant to any story. By halfway through, though, I'd had more than enough of long passages on memory or photograpy not because I was bored but because it felt like a textbook or a lecture--very dry. I think this book would have been better as a short story. Or as a much shorter novel. She could have canned all the exposition on memory and stuck to the story, and I think it would have been great. This hasn't turned me off to the author, and I'll read her other books.

I enjoyed this book. It is an easy read with a surprising ending. A book that you can take with you and read a few pages at a time without getting confused!! Enjoyable, light reading
