REVIEW: What Jonah Knew

Jonah is a child who was born after a local musician goes missing. He is haunted with night terrors and often says strange things a child wouldn’t even so much as claiming his mother is not really his mother. His family crosses paths with the family of the missing man and he recognizes his dog and his “other” mom. How much can they press the young boy to help them find the missing man and what happened to him.

This is one of those books that I’m not sure how to rate and I’m not really sure what I thought about it. This is labelled as a thriller and I don’t think it met that criteria at all. The pacing was unbelievably slow so I’m not sure what part was the thriller part. Also none of the characters were very likable or even interesting. I liked the premise but just didn’t vibe with the way the story was told. 

Just because I didn’t love this one doesn’t mean you won’t, so if you like unusual crime stories, then check this one out.

Thanks to Harper Paperbacks for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.

What’s the last book you read but weren’t quite sure how you felt about it when you were finished?
