My Review Of
Gone Without A Trace
I don’t even know where to begin! The book opens with Hannah very excited to go home to Matt so that she can share exciting news of a pending promotion at work, as Hannah enters the house, Matt and all of his belongings , and I mean every last one down to photos are gone. Now begins the roller coaster like ride of the rest of the book that is told completely in Hannah’s voice. Hannah turns to her best friend from childhood for support but to me this friend seems more competitive with Hannah, she is supportive but then makes little digs here and there. As the story unfolds we realize quickly that Hannah is a bit complicated, we only see one friend and this friends boyfriend, I found myself wondering where are all of Hannah’s friends and Hannah never sees her parents who live close by. We quickly learn that there is something off about Hannah’s father and well into the book there is a scene with Hannah and her mother that sheds some light on her parents relationship. I found myself wondering many times throughout this book why did Matt completely erase himself from Hannah’s life? Hannah’s life quickly goes down in a bad spiral and things get rocky at work for her as well. I found myself rooting for Hannah through most of the book, however there was that nagging voice in the back of my mind ever present as to why again did Matt leave Hannah without a trace? As Hannah’s life starts to spiral down, I started to question who she really was more and more. Needless to say the last few chapters of the book are a complete and I mean complete 360 from the first chapter. I will say that my favorite lines of the book are Hannah’s last few lines in the book!
