Places I Never Meant To Go

Places I Never Meant To GoAuthor supplied copy for honest review This is a relatively short book that is easy to read through in a condensed time It is written in first person narrative which ultimately narrows down the available story that can be told I think avibrant, suspenseful and complete story could ve been created if the author wrote it in third person point of view.As a seasoned BETA reader I noticed several discrepancies and unrealistic plot points in some parts of the story which left me a little confused in places but as the story moved through, I did become engaged with Tyler as a character and quite invested in his journey.If you are looking for a light read, and you don t tend to over analyse as you go then this story will fit the bill nicely. Tyler Works A Dead End, Job By Day And Drinks Himself Stupid By Night When The Girl He Has Been Talking To Online For Several Months Is Suddenly On TheO Clock News, Tyler Finds Himself Driving Across The Country In Hopes Of Finding Her In Search Of The Only Thing He S Ever Really Cared About, He Will Learn What It Means To Fight For Something In His Life That Actually Matters Instead Of Letting Life Pass Him By Tyler works a dead end, 9 5 job by day and drinks himself stupid by night When the girl he has been talking to online for several months is suddenly on the 6 o clock news, Tyler finds himself driving across the country in hopes of finding her In search of the only thing he s ever really cared about, he would learn what it means to fight for something in his life that actually matters as apposed to letting life pass him by.An interesting story that started rather slowly for my taste, but since it is a short book it was easy enough to persevere stick with it until things began to actually move Ultimately this book is probably best if read when not in a literal frame of mind I found it a bit challenging at times to reconcile the main character, Tyler, to his actions He is certainly a player, but since we have no clue what he looks like it is tough to see a different woman throw herself at him each night Yet it is clear that he is physically attractive as he is the object of smiles, winks, and pick up lines from women.Then there are the discrepancies, of which these are just a few he talks of his difficult financial situation and yet he is out drinking every night and buying his annoying co worker drinks as well due to continually losing at their daily contest Plus, why does he decide to drive across country rather than just hop on a plane if he s in such an all fired rush to get to Portland, Oregon to search for the missing Emily He could have spent less time money by flying there and had that muchtime to search Emily And then there is the comment made to him about not spotting the person railing him in the surveillance footage, which makes no sense since he is reviewing footage from before his arrival in the city.Although this book presents itself as a suspenseful thriller it is muchcomplex It is a multi layered story about coming of age, soul searching, friendships, romance, and forgiveness This is a book that requires that you pay close attention to the details, lest you miss something of grave importance Having read two of Ms Lynam s books back to back I think it safe to say you need to drop any preconceived notions prior to beginning any of her works, as they are quite different on a number of planes. What a talented young writer I became a fan of Shay Lynam s after I read the first book in her Tree House trilogy, The Tree House First I was a fan of her writing style and by the time I finished the book I was a fan of her storytelling ability.Places I Never Meant to Go is a very different piece of work from The Tree House I was immediately sucked into reading this book I read it at work while on break and covering the front desk, and honestly, I was looking forward to going to work so that I could readof this book each day that s saying something One thing I think that Lynam really nailed with this book is character development At first, I wasn t sure if I even liked Tyler, but by the end of the book I could see so much growth that I really have to applaud the author for her work with this character One of my favorite things about the way that Lynam writes is the way she describes emotions She doesn t tell us what the character is feeling, she shows us, which is not as easy as you may think You really have a wonderful picture in your head of every detail as you re reading her books.Places I Never Meant to Go is an account of an emotional journey that will leave you appreciating the small things in life and maybe have you questioning your own existence The endingoh that ending I can t say much about it because I despise reviews with spoilers Let me just say that my jaw was on my desk and my heart was broken.Wonderful book by a talented writer.
