How to Disappear by Gillian McAllister | Waterstones

I almost DNF'd this book, more than once, actually. I kept soldiering on with it, even though with every new development of the story, it just brought my rating further and further down. It had all the right elements to be a good mystery including an ending I didn't really see coming, but, it was not well executed. Too many eye rolling, over-the-top and strangely uncomfortable situations for me. Fact #1: The world needs more YA mystery/thrillers. For those yet on the fence about it - How To Disappear is sure to gently, lovingly... push you off said fence right onto the mystery side. It's spooky and ominous there, and there are guns and devious schemes, but it has action and mindblowing plot twists and all the best parts of the fast-paced genres we all know and love. As the world grows ever more connected, it’s imperative that voices preaching caution without hyperbole come to the fore. How refreshing, then, to read Akiko Busch’s How to Disappear, which perfectly threads the needle…[The book] isn’t interested in providing a roadmap for getting off the grid, but in exploring the various ways humans do disappear, whether it’s from view or simply into themselves…Philosophical and thoughtful, How to Disappear beautifully illuminates the ways we choose to hide.” —Shelf Awareness for Readers, starred reviewThank you NetGalley and Penguin Michael Joseph for How to disappear by Gillian McAllister. I have read several of her books and I think this is her best one yet.

If you could spend the day with one of your characters from How to Disappear, who would it be and what would you do or talk about?

But going off the grid entirely is hard, so you need to begin setting up new legitimate services, using prepaid cellphones and PO boxes as cut outs. Ahearn is frustratingly vague on the details of working a job and paying rent while disappeared (I guess he doesn't want to give away his whole business in the book), but the safest thing to do is to incorporate a company with a generic name and have it serve as your cut out to the financial world. And while you're setting up a legitimate hidey hole, investigate as many dummies as possible, leaving dead-end bread crumbs for skiptracers. I loved this book so much, I read it in one sitting! I feel like I can read it again and again which is rare for me. It’s so good the plot and the characters were amazing! I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t put it down. This is a must read I think everyone should go out and buy it and read it especially if you’re a fan of thrillers and mysteries!!!
