Gone, Baby, Gone

Gone, Baby, Gone - Dennis Lehane

Angie and Patrick reluctantly take on a case to find a missing girl. But as usual nothing are as it seems at this case just like many before them will take a toll on them both.


In Gone, Baby, Gone you really get a taste of darkness and an overdose of evil. I finished the book a couple of weeks ago but this was a book that actually was so awful to read, the first Lehane book I had to read in phases, not right through because it was sometimes too awful to read. I also waited a while to write the review. Sometimes dwelling in darkness isn’t that nice and after Gone, Baby, Gone I just wanted to read easy things and watch fun things on tv.


Rating the book was also hard. I gave the book 4,5 stars after I finished the book, but after thinking it through these weeks after finish the book have I decided to give the 4 instead, knock of a half star more.  I found the book too dark and disturbing for my taste. I hate reading books when children get hurt and for instance the pedophile part of the books was horrific.


I have more Lehane books to read, but for the moment I will read other kind of books. Books with hopefully happy endings…
