DNF Review: Caught by Harlan Coben


17 year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

Wendy Tynes is a reporter on a mission, to identify and bring down sexual predators via elaborate—and nationally televised—sting operations. Working with local police on her news program Caught in the Act, Wendy and her team have publicly shamed dozens of men by the time she encounters her latest target. Dan Mercer is a social worker known as a friend to troubled teens, but his story soon becomes more complicated than Wendy could have imagined.


I somehow made it 135 pages in before I had to give this up. during that time there were A LOT of phrases that made me stop and think – wow is this how he really feels? Some of this shit is kind of disturbing. Talking about how if two girls die, well one of them was a prostitute so her death doesn’t matter. Women being strong is crap. The 40 year old white guy who thinks he can be a rapper. I can’t do it. I’ll just Google what happens at this point.

I’m kind of disappointed because this is my 3rd book by Harlen Coben and the only one I DNFd. I’ll just take a break from him for a while.

1 star.

    I recently DNF’ed a book, it was The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman on audio that I DNF’ed. I do have plans to read it in print at some point.
