    The Trap by Melanie Raabe is a 2017 Grand Central publication The psychological thriller has really seen a boon the past couple of years, with many debut authors finding immediate success writing books that were inevitably marketed for fans of Gone Girl or Girl on the Train But, by the end of 2016 I was ready to move on to other things, not wanting to burn myself out on one of my favorite genres.But, when this book popped up on my radar, I couldn t resist it This book was originally published in [...]

    3.5 Stars I rounded up because I had a hard time putting it down once it got going EDIT 7 24 16 I changed my mind about rounding after some distance, but 3 stars is still a like for me A solid thriller with a REALLY unreliable narrator The central character s internal conflict and descent into madness is the main point of interest A book must be an axe for the frozen sea within us Franz KafkaBestselling author Linda Conrads hasn t left her home for over a decade, since around the time she found [...]

    A sister is both your mirror and your opposite Elizabeth FishelMelanie Raabe, a German author, has penned a heart stopping and extremely mind boggling psychological thriller in her debut book, The Trap in which the author weaves the story of an elder sister who lives her life in isolation after her younger sister s death, who was murdered and she knows about her sister s killer, but back at time, no one believed her story, and so, eleven years later, when she sees the killer s face on TV, she se [...]

    3,5 SterneIch bin sehr zwiegespalten Es ist ein netter, spannender Thriller mehr aber nicht Der Schreibstil war teilweise sehr gut, die Ideen und Handlung interessant, aber am Ende fehlt dann doch das gewisse Etwas, und vor allem der ganz gro e Knall Definitiv solide Unterhaltung, aber teilweise etwas zu simpel Ich werde mir auch Melanie Raabes zweites Buch mal anschauen Aber der ganz gro e Wurf war Die Falle f r mich irgendwie nicht.

    I really tried hard to like this book, but it s not for me.My main problem with the book was that there was so much description The exposition literally killed the plot And the story itself felt very unbelievable and the characters were flat to say the least.I liked the starting of the book and the build up, but around 20% I started to feel distracted and bored, and by that time I finished the quarter mark, I was already not interested in knowing what happened next And that was why I read the re [...]

    A very twisted tale of Sisters The book has a very melancholic tone to it so don t expect an adrenaline high thriller ride from the book because i did and i had to cope up with the fact that the book is a bit gloomy and takes time to sit well with its readers Those who love dark and silent thrillers, this is your pick but even if it is not the case, the book promises a good experience but you need to show a bit patience for thatThe trap deals with not events or mystery aspect of the story rather [...]

    Raabe s novel which I read in the German original started off with a very interesting premise After witnessing her sister s murder, female writer spends the next 12 years in seclusion, never leaving her house By chance she sees the killer on tv and decides to get him to confess setting a trap by publishing a crime novel, recounting the murder.But the book was a disappointment the plot was predictable, the characters stayed bland and, worst of all, the writing style was quite bad, full of clich d [...]

    Rachel Hall

    A captivating opening and a startlingly original concept are about as good as this meandering and highly protracted thriller gets, sadly after that then it is a rocky and uneven yawn of a read until the final page I presume the term thriller has been used in the euphemistic sense of the word as The Trap runs the risk of leaving readers twiddling their thumbs awaiting a development Whilst this is a debut novel, two fundamental issues hamper the direction of the novel from the off namely that the [...]

    Wow An amazing thriller with so many shockers I was riveted and scared and did not know what was coming or what to think the best kind of psychological thriller One of my favourites.

    4.5 Sterne f r Spannung pur Genauso muss ein Thriller sein Ungew hnliche Charaktere, viele berraschungen, kuriose Handlung wenn das Gedankenkarusell der Protagonisten sich noch einen Tick weniger oft gedreht h tte, dann w rs ein Highlight gewesen D

    Que dire de ce roman J ai aim les premi res pages puis je me suis ennuy e durant le reste de la premi re moiti du livre Heureusement, la seconde moiti tait mieux.J ai aim la structure du livre consistant int grer un roman dans un roman, et la compl mentarit des deux, mais j ai t agac e par le fait que, dans certains chapitres, l auteure nous raconte des choses comme si elles s taient r ellement pass es ainsi puis nous dire la fin a aurait pu se passer comme a S il elle ne l avait fait qu une foi [...]

    Zu schreiben, dass die Bestsellerautorin Linda Conrads zur ckgezogen lebt, w re untertrieben Denn seit vor 11 Jahren ihre Schwester ermordet wurde, hat sie ihr Haus nicht mehr verlassen Linda schreibt Liebesromane und hat sich ihr Leben in ihrem netten Gef ngnis mit ihrem Hund und einer Haushaltshilfe so nett wie m glich eingerichtet Bis sie dann eines Tages im Fernsehen den Mann sieht, der ihre Schwester ermordet hat Denn in der Tatnacht hatte sie den M rder direkt nach dem Mord in der Wohnung [...]

    Going into a new book I always read the description so I have a good idea of how things are going to pan out With The Trap I was expecting a standard whodunnit but Raabe, a new German author, switched things up and gave me a very character driven and impressive psychological thriller I ended up with a very different kind of experience than I initially expected and I quite enjoyed it.The premise is that author Linda Conrads found her sister s murdered body 12 years ago and even caught a glimpse o [...]
