Reviews for Don't Turn Around
The Irish Banana Review
After a bit of a reading slump, I picked this book up off my shelf and, suffice to say, my reading slump is now over. Don't Turn Around renewed my love for books within the first chapter. Michelle Gagnon grabs you in a vise and doesn't let up ever. This book stole my breath in the best possible way.
The moment the book opens with Noa waking up, the action starts and doesn't let up. This book is heavily compared to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and I get the similarities. But Noa is not Lisbeth Salander. While both are tech-savvy geniuses who have lived on their own for a while, Noa has a heart that Lisbeth just never got. Noa is endearing, frustrating, and thrilling.
I will say that this story definitely focuses more on plot than characters, but that totally works here. I felt like I had a good grip on the characters-they were engaging, unique, and had chemistry-but the real gem is the plot. Gagnon spares no expense as she dives into the world of corporate and government conspiracies. She creates this complex and intricate plot that weaves together into an ingenious literary knot.
I am so thrilled that there will be more books because I did not nearly get my fill of Noa (and Peter-especially Noa with Peter) and this crazy world. I'm usually the girl who has to have a romantic storyline to really fall hard for a story, but that wasn't the case here. Yes, there's some fun moments between Noa and Peter, and I truly hope their relationship evolves through the series, but the story itself was so exciting, I was addicted from the first sentence. Gagnon already had an established fanbase with her adult audience and that it sure to increase significantly with the YA crowd. She wrote a novel that will easily appeal to teens and adults. by Hannah
