Review: 'Lost You' is psychological thriller
I was SO excited to read this one. Gone looked great! It tells the story of Eve and Eric.

- Jenny Erpenbeck finds a novel way to tackle the migrant problem;
- Pierce Ackles and the Leather Apron: The Tale of Jack the Ripper.
Eve is a nutritionist. Eric is a sculptor. Eve's career is thriving. Eric's is not. One night, Eric, leaves the house to take the Baby sitter home. He should be gone only a few minutes. Eric has absconded with the Baby Sitter. Eve has no idea what is going on and where the two of them have gone. She just knows that all of a sudden she is a single mom whose husband has literally run a I was SO excited to read this one. She just knows that all of a sudden she is a single mom whose husband has literally run away. What a premise. And how realistic.
I have known women whom similar things have happened to. It's a pretty terrifying premise and every wife's worst nightmare. But the book fell flat for me. It wasn't awful or even not good. I read till the end. But I had a few issues. Here are some of them: t I disliked Eve's husband. I disliked him so much that it was hard for me to relate to him.
The husband, Eric,, treated Eve really badly.
“Ross Perot and China”
It was hard for me to have much sympathy for him. I did like Eve and was surprised by how much inner strength she had in dealing with her vanishing husband. There were way to many descriptions of food in this book. I mean whole paragraphs. That is OK I guess but at times it did feel I was reading a cooking manual. I know that is Eve's career but it was still a bit much. The baby sitter it turns out is not sexually involved with Eric at all. Not a spoiler since you find that out early on. She has another reason for needing to abscond with Eric.
And her story really did not interest me much. It just didn't. So I was not very invested. All in all, I enjoyed some aspects of the book more then the book as a whole but it is possible I am not the target audience for it. I thought it was going to be quite different then it wound up being. Still I would not call "Gone" a bad book at all. It just was not the book for me. Eric's angst over his talent being gone made me feel for him a bit but his callousness toward Eve made it difficult.
Gone was not a bad read but it was not one I was wild over. View 1 comment. Aug 05, Carolyn rated it did not like it. It's too bad - I had heard so many good things about this book. The premise was good Spoiler alart - although there isn't MUCH to spoil pages in I'm not sure why the author felt the need to write about 20 pages on her nutrition "interventions" with "clients". I found this whole sub-plot to be bizarre. I used to work with dieticians so know the drill.doubtvinappmi.tk

Was it only to show us how competent the main character is, in contrast to her useless husband? How she is able to save the world through helthy but not too healthy , food for her poor depraved clients, in the face of her husband not coming home? I kept saying to myself: Seriously? I could not identify with this character. And never complains. I would have hoped into the car with the babysitter too. And the "other" main character - the husband - was more realistic but not within a relationship to super woman.
Then listen to him whine about why he is SO useless in the face of these competent women around him. He is a brat by being able to only "feel connected" only to his somethng babysitter and teenaged daughter. Don't most men feel this coming on, recognise it, and move on? Man up!
