A New York Times Book Review "Editors' Choice"
"[One] of the most anticipated summer thrillers...Gentry's novel isn't primarily about the version of the self that comes from a name and a family of origin; instead, it draws our attention to the self that's forged from sheer survival, and from the clarifying call to vengeance." —The New York Times Book Review
“A mother, a daughter, a zealot, an investigator, a family, a stripper, and more than a few survivors lay the riveting groundwork, but it's Amy Gentry's realistic portrayals of victims and their families that set Good As Gone apart from other page-turning crime dramas...The end result is a true ‘novel of suspense’: a book that's hard to put down not only because of our investment in the plot, but also because of our investment in the lives of the complicated characters.” —The Austin Chronicle
"Compelling and emotionally nuanced." —The Seattle Times
 “Both a mother-daughter and a family-under-fire story, Good As Gone is laden with confused identities and a thrumming plot. Amy Gentry's debut also holds a mirror up to the myriad ways rape culture is perpetuated.” —Bustle
Good As Gone…confirms the entrance of a powerful new voice in the world of crime fiction—Gentry knows crime fiction as a critic and as a writer, and brings her experiences with her for a novel that is as playful and self-aware in its structure as it is responsible in its themes.”—MysteryPeople
"Debut novelist Gentry delivers on genre expectations with crisp, unobtrusive writing and well-executed plot twists." —Kirkus Reviews
"Clever perspective changes give Gentry's debut building suspense...Fans of Paula Hawkin's The Girl on the Train will enjoy the shifting points of view and the complex female characters, and those who liked Samantha Hunt's Mr. Splitfoot will appreciate the seedy characters and haunting theme of childhood vulnerability...Gentry's depiction of a family working through immense suffering will connect with many readers." —Booklist
“Amy Gentry has burst out of the gate with a monumentally intelligent, wily thriller about identity, vengeance, and homecoming that introduces readers to some of the most badass female characters on the shelf. Good As Gone is a river that shoots the reader deftly through rapids, over cliffs, past eerie vistas to a shocking, elegant and well-earned ending. Do yourself a favor: jump in.“—Kelly Luce, author of Pull Me Under
 
“A bracing, scarily honest look at what it means to be female—and to be a daughter, sister, wife, mother—wrapped up in a vicious thriller. Gentry's ambitious debut will satisfy fans of Gone Girl, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and The Killing.”—Merritt Tierce, author of Love Me Back
 
“Unreliability sets the tone for this page-turner as it begins with a kidnapping where the only witness is the victim's a ten-year-old sister. Pitting innocence and earnestness against criminality and manipulation, this novel, with its deft twists and turns, will leave you haunted long after the final page...You need to read this book. Like a literary James Patterson, this is a not-to-miss debut.”—Steph Opitz, book reviewer, Marie Claire

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

[One] of the most anticipated summer thrillers . . . Gentry's novel isn't primarily about the version of the self that comes from a name and a family of origin; instead, it draws our attention to the self that's forged from sheer survival, and from the clarifying call to vengeance. New York Times Book Review

Anna s daughter, Julie, was kidnapped from her own bedroom when she was thirteen years old, while Anna slept just downstairs, unaware that her daughter was being ripped away from her. For eight years, she has lived with the guilt and the void in her family, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night, the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. Anna and the rest of the family are thrilled, but soon Anna begins to see holes in Julie s story. When she is contacted by a former detective turned private eye, she is forced to wonder if this young woman is even her daughter at all. And if she isn t Julie, what is it that she wants?

So much about this novel is fresh and insightful and decidedly not like every other thriller . . . Good As Gone ranks as an outstanding debut, well worth reading. This is no mere Gone Girl wannabe. Dallas Morning News

[AU PHOTO] AMY GENTRY is a book reviewer for the Chicago Tribune whose work has also appeared in Salon, LA Review of Books, and the Best Food Writing of 2014. She lives in Austin, where she volunteered for several years with victims of sexual and domestic violence. Good As Gone is her first novel.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ein Mädchen verschwindet aus ihrem Elternhaus - vermutlich handelt es sich um eine Entführung - und nach etlichen, für die Eltern und jüngere Schwester zermürbenden Jahren steht eines Tages eine entkräftete, junge Frau vor ihrer Haustüre und behauptet die verlorene Tochter zu sein.
Und nun? Ist sie es tatsächlich - ist sie es nicht? Was ist damals geschehen? Was ist seit damals geschehen? Was hat sie erduldet, was hat sie getan? Wie sehr hat sie sich verändert? Wieso ist sie nicht ehrlich? Wie geht es jetzt weiter? Wie verkraften die Eltern und die Schwester diese Wiederkehr?
Die Antwort auf all diese Fragen sollten sich dem Leser aus den in der Folge durcheinander hin geworfenen Rückblicken, Erinnerungen, Szenen aus der Gegenwart, wechselnd aus Sicht der betroffenen Person oder als Schilderung erschließen.
Aber so funktioniert das leider nicht - bestenfalls zum Ende des Buches hin kann der Leser die Vielzahl der (verschrobenen, gestörten ...?) Charaktere und surrealen Ereignisse für sich "sortieren", wenn er dann noch Lust darauf hat. Der Schluss ist dann konsequenterweise ebenfalls krude und unplausibel.
Unsere örtliche Bücherei freut sich immer über Fremdsprachliches - in meinem Regal hat dieses Werk jedenfalls keinen Platz.

Intriguing, suspenseful and creatively written. Easy to read and hard to put down. I loved all the twists and turns.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Suspenseful, but I'm not happy with it. 23. Januar 2017
Von Frannie Cheska - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
*** minor spoilers nothing big***

I started this last night and finished this morning. That's how much i was into this. The prologue alone gave me goosebumps and I was able to see the creepy skinny hands and felt the fear of hiding out in a closet. After that the book starts off in 1st person with the mother as the narrator. I enjoyed her POV the most. It was understandable and relatable, unlike the other POV. When Julie returns home after so long, you immediately start to wonder if she is an imposter or not. After that, we get the POV of several versions of this "julie" it was too hard to keep track of. While interesting to know where she has been and the life she has suffered through, it was also all very confusing. The time line was kind of messed up, or just difficult to keep up with. The change of names too. In the end when it is all out in the open, I am left unsatisfied. It isn't good enough. Not at all. Yes it was tragic and interesting as hell to find out eventually what exactly happened to her, but it was all kind of shady after *** the escape*** I don't get why she didn't go back. The whole charlotte thing was confusing af! and to finally get to this ending: all of the stories and pov didn't mean much anymore- it was irrelevant. I didn't like her attitude, it was too mean for her to be who she really was. Also the part where she gets her hair dyed and is freaking about the roots? at the end, I'm annoyed that the author tried to fool me because in the end it was also irrelevant and a lie to distract me. So what if janes shoes were distressed and not naturally out worn? seriously? I feel like the author tried to mislead us with false information. overall i enjoyed the book because it was definitely suspenseful, but I am not happy about how things ended. Yes I would still recommend it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Two words come to mind: Confusing and Ridiculous! 9. Mai 2017
Von Michelle Horgan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This review DOES contain a big *SPOILER*

This book has great reviews so perhaps it's me and not this book or maybe I've just read too many suspense novels to appreciate this one.

My biggest problem with this book was how completely confusing it is. This story is told through multiple point of view's which is something I normally love but it was not executed very well here. Point being that one of the characters goes by a different name in each of her chapters and within those chapters you meet other people (more names!) that have no other place in the story. I kept asking myself who the hell are all these people??? I've never seen so many names thrown around.

I also didn't buy any of the ridiculous plot. The ending was terrible which I will spoil below. You've been warned.

***SPOILER***

You can't expect me to believe all the holy roller crap at the end, do you? This girl willingly left home to be with some dude from a church group who ended up being a total creep and then she escaped but didn't return home rather she became a prostitute and then started stripping for a living only to become a front woman in a band while manipulating tons of people in the process was only looking to find Jesus because her parents were atheists. Haha, that is funny.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Unlikable 23. August 2016
Von Janlynn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent idea for a novel. Poor execution. The book started out very well and kept my interest. Once it started switching narrators it became almost unreadable. The story had many unlikable characters, especially Julie. Don't bother with this one.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to follow 16. Januar 2017
Von Carolyn Gladd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I guess I don't like mysteries. This book jumped all over the place. It was difficult to figure out the timing of each chapter and who they were talking about, which made the book disinteresting. However, the first few chapters were good.
