The Other People
The Other People | C. J. Tudor
The gripping new thriller from the acclaimed author of The Chalk Man and The Hiding Place, about a man desperately searching for his missing family who falls under the sway of a sinister support group with a murderous agenda. Three years ago, Gabe's family disappeared. Most people think they died. Some of them blame Gabe. Hardly anyone believes the truth--that Gabe saw his daughter the day she and his wife disappeared, smiling at him from the back of a rusty old car speeding down the highway. So even though it's been three years since that day, Gabe cannot give up hope. Even though he has given up everything else. His home, his job, his old life. He spends his days travelling up and down the highway and sleeping in service stations, searching for the car that took her. It's hard for most people to understand. But Gabe has found some who do in an online group set up by people who have also lost loved ones--who have suffered like him. They call themselves "The Other People." Because isn't that what everyone thinks: bad stuff only happens to "other people." When the car that Gabe saw driving away that night is found in a lake with a body inside, Gabe is suddenly under suspicion--and in danger. In desperation, he turns to The Other People for help. Because they are good people. They know what loss is like. They know what pain is like. They know what death is like. There's just one problem . . . they want other people to know it too.

This was not what I was expecting and I liked it kind of, maybe. I mean I read it in 6 hours because I needed to know what happened next but I don‘t enjoy supernatural elements in psychological mysteries. The characters all felt very shallow but the plot was engaging, Gabe felt almost like half a person but it could be his circumstances. I don‘t know, it wasn‘t the best thing I‘d ever read but I didn‘t hate it and that‘s all I can really say.

C.J. Tudor does not disappoint! I‘ve read all of her books and, while this isn‘t quite my favorite (The Chalk Man is!) it definitely is close. So...many...twists! And she does that lovely thing where she peppers it with lots of short chapters with cliffhanger endings...how am I supposed to stop reading and do anything else? I‘ve been very lucky with my thriller picks lately and I hope my luck continues! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Brilliant. Super twisty. I was able to correctly predict a lot of it but it didn‘t detract from my enjoyment. The way she writes about grief and loss is beautiful and had me teary at many points. Loved this one!

Excellent read. Read it straight through. A man witnesses his daughter being kidnapped. He spends the next couple years searching for her. It leads him down a twisted path full of people and connections he is not sure he should trust but he has nothing left to lose. Page turner for sure. A couple quick "convenient tie ups" but still believable. ?‍♀️?‍♀️?‍♀️?‍♀️

Bk5 of my #JanuaryBookHaul is a signed copy of the new novel by the author of The Chalk Man. I enjoyed that one, though not the best I‘ve read, her 2nd,The Taking Of Annie Thorne,was very strange but a solid read, I‘m hoping 3‘s the charm & this one is the killer.Three years ago, Gabe saw his daughter taken but no one believes him, Katie works in a service station on the motorway that Gabe haunts & Fran is on the run. How do their stories entwine?

This book is shaped like a whirlpool. You start at the edge, not realizing what you‘ve been caught up in, and then you start slowly swirling and moving toward the center of the whirlpool, and then everything comes together, and, SPLASH, you‘re in the center, whirling with the characters and the story comes to a climactic conclusion, and you think it‘s all over, but, there‘s one more whirl and then, you take a big breath, and it‘s done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Small book haul! I was very grateful that my husband was willing to leave work early yesterday to pick up my preordered copy of The Other People and our book club read, In the Woods, from the bookstore yesterday.

Have you read or are you planning to read either of these?

Gabe spends his day looking for his daughter. Driving up and down the motorway searching for the car that took her. 3 years ago his wife and "daughter" where murdered. He believes deep down inside that it wasnt his daughter because when he was driving home he seen his daughter in the backseat of a car screaming. He doesn't give up hope on searching for her.

mandi1082 I found this story fascinating and drew me in from the very beginning. I loved the cast of characters and even the spooky Vibe this story gives you. This is definitely a page Turner. Thank you Netgally and Random House Ballantine for an ARC of this book for an honest review. 4w

This was my second book by Ms. Tudor and I'm glad I gave her another chance. I really didn't like The Chalk Man, so I was glad to have a different outcome this time around!

This kept me highly engaged, however the end was kind of rushed and confusing. It ruined my overall enjoyment a little and there were some happy coincidences you had to overlook, but overall a good effort!

Wow!! Thanks, #NetGalley, for this exciting thriller! I not only am using this for #FinishInADay for #Booked2020 but I definitely read this in one breathless sitting! It hooked me in right away with a nightmare scene- being behind an unfamiliar car in a traffic jam- and seeing your daughter in the back- then calling home and having the police answer... Electrifying and tense, I loved this one even better than her debut novel! Truly excellent!

Cinfhen Ohhhhh!!! Sounds good!!!!!! I think I was offered this ARC 1mo
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen I really enjoyed it!!! I hope you do too- it‘s out 1/28 in the US if that helps you track it down! ☺️ 1mo

I love mystery & thrillers so I was very excited about another Tudor book. Unfortunately, I only feel so-so about this one. It had a great beginning that sucked you in and left you to wonder what in world was going on, but the revelation felt forced and some of the story felt far fetched and not real. However, Tudor's writing is wonderful and probably what saved me from DNFing this one.
