I'm Traveling Alone
I'm Traveling Alone: A Novel - Samuel Bjork

Why did I wait so long to read this?

There was a time I read a lot of the Scandinavian crime books that were flooding the local book stores, but since my attention has somewhat moved from crime books in general it took me a while to get to this one. I'm glad I eventually got to it.

It was a very good story and some nice characters were introduced, and it looks like it is going to be a great series that I would like to read more about. The case was solid and there was a twist I didn't see coming.

Recommended.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

I'm Traveling Alone: A Novel - Samuel Bjork

I finally read the back cover of this book (I had bought it based on skimming a review without much knowledge of the plot). I've read 239 pages of this Mystery novel. the back cover of the trade paperback edition gives away a plot development that has not happened yet, even as far as I have read. this is not the first time I've encountered this phenomenon. I really hate it. I'm glad I hadn't read what is essentially a spoiler on the back of the book. just a heads-up. putting all that nonsense aside, the book is still terrific. but just read the top half of the back cover to get an idea of the story.

I decided I wanted to read a bit more tonight, though I'm quite tired due to lack of proper sleep last night. anyway, I pushed on and decided to read, if I could keep concentration, until page 190...the end of the chapter that would put me at less than 200 pages to go (just get past page 188, and stop). well, the best laid plans and all that--I could not leave the characters trapped in the horrible situation they found themselves in, on page 190! too cruel. the next short chapter switched to other characters so I took a look if one more chapter would bounce back to those in hell on page 190, and that was blessedly the case. um. okay, I'm stopping at page 202; things are even more horrible for certain folks than they were at 190, but I'm stopping before things get even worse! that's what I get for trying to make things better. could be many pages before I get to relax over this. tomorrow.

stunning, stunning, stunningly good; I am enjoying absorbing every page, and I love that it has absorbed me completely. please, fates, let it not start to stink. I don't think it will.

still did not leave myself enough time this morning to really get far into this--but, to its credit and despite chapters introducing what first appear to be far-flung characters and threads, the creepy main plotline has started coalesce and I'm hooked now. tonight!
