No Exit
No Exit: A Novel | Taylor Adams
A brilliant, edgy thriller about four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to unmask and outwit a vicious psychopath. A kidnapped little girl locked in a strangers van. No help for miles. What would you do? On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, shes forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers. Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate. Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her? There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one? Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a childs life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape. But who can she trust? With exquisitely controlled pacing, Taylor Adams diabolically ratchets up the tension with every page. Full of terrifying twists and hairpin turns, No Exit will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you breathless.

Darby Thorne ends up trapped in a rest stop, knowing one of the strangers with her is a kidnapper. As she waits for rescue, the story fills with twists, turns, and a whole lot of blood. It‘s not the story I expected, but I loved it nonetheless.

+2 for a thriller

An emergency has Darby racing home during a blizzard. When the snow worsens she gets stranded at a rest area with four strangers and no cell service. While trying to contact her family from the parking lot she makes a terrifying discovery, a child caged in the back of a van. Now she has to determine who to trust and how to save the child without endangering everyone inside. Twisty and Turny, this one plays with your emotions until the very end.

Probably one of the most despicable characters in any book I have ever read. High marks for making me despise someone so much. Plot-wise however, I felt it was a bit over the top. Just when you think things can't get any crazier, they do.

Il libro coinvolge e si fa leggere tutto d'un fiato.
Pieno di colpi di scena, poche volte prevedibili.
Bellissima capacità dell'autore di rendere percepibili non solo le emozioni della protagonista, ma anche le sensazioni che essa prova sul proprio corpo, i dettagli che la circondano ed i brividi per gli avvenimenti avvenuti e non.
Un thriller ben realizzato.

I am a huge fan of the thrillers where a woman finds herself face to face with death and says, “not today... or tomorrow... or the next day.” Taylor Adams totally nailed it with his heroine Darby. 10/10 I would die for her.

Theres a lot of hype surrounding this book and I was worried it wouldn't live up to it but it truly does. It was fantastic. So dark and atmospheric, it had me gripped from start to finish. The plot builds quickly to a dramatic climax. There are some really clever twists in this though I did figure out one. The ending is perfect and finished the book off brilliantly. There are some pretty graphic scenes in this but it didn't bother me. 5*

I sat down thinking I wasn‘t going to be able to finish (seeing as this is outside my usual genre), but man was I wrong! This felt like I was watching a clear movie 🎥 in my head. Well done!
I‘ve been so busy lately that I haven‘t been able to read many books. I finished my bachelors, got accepted into my masters, got a house (we are renovating), and got a new puppy because Aussies rock! Her name is Rosie Cotton (the brown girl) 🥰😉😌 cont👇🏻

This was definitely a thriller. The first book where I “had to know what happens next!” in a long time. But it sometimes felt like a bad horror film in terms of things just kept going unbelievably wrong.
It‘s also a pet peeve that the main characters (being stalked, tortured, nearly killed) in these are almost always women, even if the author is a man.
Great premise - just wish there had been more creeping suspense and less outright violence.

This was a fast-paced, entertaining read. I found it a bit predictable and repetitive at times and some of the dialogue was cringey, but overall I had fun with it.

Woooeeee what a read! it was a quick one from cover to cover and you were cheering for Darby all the way. Villains are disgustingly repugnant and although the ending was a bit over the top, it's still worth a read through! pick this one up but avoid the rest stops ;)

I‘m on like page 2 and there are geographical problems! I didn‘t realize this started in Boulder.
There is no part of Utah you could be driving to where you would go from Boulder through Denver! Also, where the hell is she on Rte 6 like 3 hours after leaving Boulder? My head is not in this game because I am trying too hard to geolocate the characters.

TrishB Lol! Not knowing US geography that wouldn‘t even register! It‘s a bonkers read, like being in a mad action film. 3mo
eraderneely Also, I went to CU with someone called Taylor Adams and I drove a Honda Civic, so I‘m wigged our already. 3mo
eraderneely @TrishB it‘s really specific geography, but I drove from Boulder to Utah once or twice a year for rugby so I keep thinking I should know where she is. Stephen King did a great job in The Stand - I couldn‘t drive through one of those tunnels on Rte 6 after reading it. 3mo
TrishB Oh those tunnels freaked me out in The Stand too - I see those scenes in every tunnel! 3mo

So I'm going to jump on the bandwagon here - this book was non-stop suspense. Every time I thought it was going to slow down, it sped up. This is the first book to get a lot of hype that I've agreed with in a looong time. Now I've got to catch my breath 😉
