    Oh my lucky stars, I cannot describe the high I am still riding after finishing this book. My sister and I binge read books #1-10 of the series back in 2011; they were a different read for us as we don’t gravitate toward sports themed books, but I quickly fell in love with the quirky cast of characters, hilarious banter, and action packed mysteries found in each story. It had been so long since I read book #10 (Live Wire) that I had to search o...

    I have a book hangover after reading this book last night. I couldn't put it down and was up in the wee hours in the morning finishing it! I have been waiting for this book forever and was so shocked to see that another book in this series came out. It took forever to get my hands on this book.Myron and Win and the rest of the characters are back and I couldn’t be more thrilled! After waiting for what feels like forever book eleven in the Myron...

    A traveling sister read with Brenda!!My favorite of the series so far. Actually, upon further reflection, this is my favorite Harlan Coben book, period!Myron and Win are two of my all-time, most entertaining book characters! Together again, their magic just sparkles! An outstanding book by one of my favorite authors. Ok enough gushing! (For now!)The plot unfolds when ten years ago, two boys, Rhys and Patrick are kidnapped. Both families are left ...

    A crazy good thriller and all the feels, too? Hell, yes!Ten years ago, childhood best friends Rhys Baldwin and Patrick Moore were kidnapped during a playdate at Rhys' suburban New Jersey home. They were six years old.The police couldn't figure out what happened. The family's au pair was found tied up, and there was no trace of the boys. After one attempt to collect ransom from the grieving families, nothing was heard again. The media attention ...

    This book was a "HOME" run! Coben really hit the "ball out of the park" with this one! This book was a total WIN/win. Ok... enough with the cheesy puns... even though they all fit the bill with this novel. This book was probably the best book I've ever read in my entire life. Seriously, I've read some awesome books.. Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter, That Night by Chevy Stevens, Dark Places by Gillian Flynn... but this my friends takes the cake. T...

Wisecracks are flying and suspense building as an anonymous email prompts the search for two six year old boys.......ten years later.We begin in London with some BIG bad-ass henchmen and are soon reminded that the filthy rich Windsor Horne Lockwood III can be one wicked and lethal dude despite his aristocratic and effete appearance.HOME is the kind of myster...
  • Brenda
    Traveling Sisters Read with KaceeyHome is another fantastic, enjoyable, and excellent read by the master of mystery thrillers and our much loved author Harlan Coben. Oh how we missed you and we have no excuse waiting so long to read this exciting, gripping and heartwarming story. While maybe we do because this one was the perfect time to have read this one and a much needed read from some of the thrillers we have been reading. Kaceey and I read t...

    Long time fans of this series will join me in saying I am very glad that Win is back. Just love this character, but definitively would not want to live in his head. Interesting case in this one, two six year old boys, kidnapped ten years previously, one the son of Win's favorite cousin. He receives an anonymous email claiming to know the whereabouts of one of the boys. But for me it is the characters that make this series. Although these are myst...

    Home by Harlan Coben is a 2016 Dutton publication. Get ready for one of my rare gushing reviews! Wow! Just… Wow! This may be the best Myron Bolitar mystery ever. A year has passed since Myron has seen Win. So, when out of the blue, Win phones from London asking for help, Myron drops everything to help his old friend. This should be your first clue that things are slightly different now, because, when has Win ever asked for help? Never. But, thi...
  • Brenda
    It's been five years since the last Myron Bolitar book, and I hadn't realized how much I missed the characters. But they are back with a bang!Win has always been a bit of a mystery, so I love that he's sharing the spotlight with Myron in this book. Family and friendships are as strong as ever. Esperanza and Big Cyndi are here, as is nephew Mickey. The humor and witty repartee are here. I was pulled in right from the first chapter because Harlan C...
  • Brenda
    The shock Myron Bolitar felt when he received the telephone call from his best friend, Win who had been out of contact for the past twelve months, was great. His words “I need your help” sent Myron to London immediately on a journey that was both exhilarating and traumatising. Two six year old boys had been kidnapped ten years prior – best friends, Patrick and Rhys had been on a play date when everything went wrong. For the ensuing years no...

    Win, or Windsor Horne Lockwood, III, has always known exactly where home was. He just hasn't been there in a while. Home is where his best friend Myron Bolitar is. Myron is Win's true north. Always has been. Always will be. In Home, by Harlan Coben, Win needs Myron's help, not the other way around. While in London, Win sees a boy, one who looks like one of two young boys who went missing 10 years prior (Patrick Moore). The other young boy (Rhys B...
  • Phrynne
    I loved every minute of this! Clever, clever Mr Coben to choose to give whole chapters over to Win's POV. It was fascinating to see the world from his unusual perspective and to understand a little more of why he does what he does. Only a little though. Win is still essentially a closed book, but we did learn a big secret about him on the very last page! Myron is also in top form especially in his romantic life, and of course the jokes and banter...
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.I absolutely loved this book! I feel like I have been waiting for this book forever. Maybe not waiting for it...hoping for it because I didn't know if we would see any more books in the Myron Bolitar series. I have been a huge Harlan Coben fan for years and I adore everything about this series. While I was excited to sit down and read this book, I was also a bit nervous about it. Would it have...
  • Jonetta
    It was absolute pure bliss being back in Myron Bolitar's world! Thank you Harlan Coben for delivering on your promise to give us another story in the series. I'm not going to spoil the experience for other readers so suffice it to say that we're immediately brought up to date on what's happened since we last saw most of the characters. I will share, however, that one of the best surprises is being given Win Lockwood's point of view throughout the...

    Two six year old boys are taken during a playdate. Ten years later, one is spotted prostituting himself on a street in London. And so it begins…The book starts off with the narrator talking directly to us, the readers. The narrator is Win, one of Coben’s long time characters. The other is Myron. The book switches between Myron and Win. Myron’s sections are told from an omniscient point of view. The alternating change in perspective was init...
  • Amanda - Mrs B's Book Reviews
    It isn’t the best move to start reading a book that is the eleventh in a highly established series. Thankfully, Home was such an exhilarating thriller, it didn’t matter that I hadn’t read any previous books in this series, or anything prior by master thriller storyteller, Harlan Coben.Home starts with a hooking premise that reeled me into the story immediately. Ten years after two school boys go missing from their suburban home in the Unite...

    5+I was so happy to see that Harlan Coben had written another Myron Bolitar book. I have been a HUGE fan of Coben’s from the beginning and have read every Myron Bolitar as it was published. I think Harlan Coben is at his finest when writing the Bolitar series; the stand alones have been more mixed for me. I disliked the ending for The Stranger so much that for the first time ever I skipped one of his books, Fool Me Once. All of that being said,...
  • Jim
    This is shown as #11 in the Myron Bolitar series. I have read several of Harlan Coben's books and have enjoyed them but this is the first Myron Bolitar book I have read. It won't be the last. Gotta love finding a new series to read. Having said that I don't think it is necessary to have read previous books in the series. There were some references to past events and these may be explained in previous books in the series but I don't think I got lo...

    All of my reviews can be found on www.novelgossip.comThe gang is back and I couldn’t be more thrilled! After waiting for what feels like forever book eleven in the Myron Bolitar series is finally here and despite the agonizing wait, it was well worth it. When I say the gang is back, I do mean the entire game; Myron, Win, Esperanza, Big Cyndi and even Mickey and crew. This should not be read as a standalone. There is just way too much history an...
  • Tammy
    Loved it! Great book and an even better Narrator. I miss driving to work with him. :0)

    Fans, you are going to love HOME. Coben hits a "Home Run"! Out of the park - What an adventure. Talented Harlan Coben returns following Fool Me Once (2016) with his much loved Myron Bolitar series with HOME. From Coben’s first Myron Bolitar thriller, Deal Breaker, in 1995, introducing a hero that would captivate millions. Over the years fans have watched Myron walk a tight rope between sports agent, friend, problem solver, and private eye...
  • Kathy
    I enjoy books by Harlan Coben. Since I first read Gone for Good and Tell No One, I have read every novel he has published. I will admit to not loving the Myron Bolitar series as much as Coben's other novels, but read all of them too. So I was a anxious to read Home, and after I read it I was anxious to read other reviews on Goodreads. Now that I have done both, I am not sure we all read the same book. The general premise of this book is excellent...
  • Sandy
    3.5 starsWhen I first came across this author’s Myron Bolitar series, I enjoyed the combination of twisty thriller laced with humour. But as the series progressed, it became somewhat repetitious & the continuous pun-fest got old. “Live Wire” (book #10) was a major disappointment & I decided it was time for us to part ways for a while.After several stand-alones, Myron is back in this much improved outing with a compelling story at its heart....
  • Laura
    Wow. It's been a while since I closed a book and hugged it to myself for a little while. Some things are a given about Harlan's books. They will be page turners, I will read them too quickly but also not quick enough and I will be kept guessing right until the end. One thing that I don't usually expect from Harlan's books is to have trouble seeing the words because of the tears streaming down my face. Books that make me cry stay with me forever. ...
  • Ellen
    Home by Harlan Coben.A top notch thriller with a little humor thrown in. Myron Bolitar along with Win (longtime friend) have discovered a boy who went missing years ago. That's just one of the boys who went missing at the same time. That still doesn't account for the ten years he was gone. And what's all the secrecy about the other boy? Is he still alive? Is there still hope for his return?I loved this Myron Bolitar mystery. It kept me enraptured...
  • Stacey
    My first Myron Bolitar! I love this guy. Lucky for me I can start at the beginning.
  • Paul
    The author played on our primal fear with a free trip into hell to experience first-hand what it would be like to live through the torturous kidnapping of a loved one. Feeling restrained in my ringside seat, I witnessed the dismantling and destruction of families through divorce, guilt and finger-pointing. Emotionally, no one survived. Two six-year-old boys were kidnapped while on a playdate. No ransom was paid - no threats were made. The kidnapp...
  • debra
    Audio. I really enjoyed this. Loyalty, friendship, and love were prominent features of the book. There were, however, darker than usual elements to the plot, but the story did not really dwell there in detail. This book had: action, humor- in the form of both smart and funny dialogue, plot twists, a mystery that I, detective extraordinaire, figured out about two pages before the answers were revealed, and wonderful characters .The narrator does a...
