Don't You Cry
Don't You Cry | Mary Kubica
In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she's the person Quinn thought she knew. n downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she's the person Quinn thought she knew. Meanwhile, in a small Michigan harbour town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where 18 year old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her charm and beauty, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more dark and sinister. As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger's spell, Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted rollercoaster ride that builds to a stunning conclusion.

What an underwhelming book. After flying through my other books I expected the same to happen with this one but I just didn‘t care. I didn‘t want to continue reading it because the story didn‘t grab me.

Told in two POV‘s, one is the roommate who is very self absorbed and worries if her coworker likes her. The ending was disappointing and I guessed the twist early on.

Meh. It was just ok. Predictable. Not sure I'd call it a "pick" but slightly more than a "so-so." Sort of a Single White Female meets Gone Girl story.

3rd of Kubica's books that I have read. Standalone thriller with interesting characters. Plot with twists and turns. The story gets off to a slow start with two separate narrators telling two separate stories. Piece by piece you begin to see how these stories can be related but you are kept guessing until the very end. I like books that surprise you and that's what her books are all about. Recommend to those who like psychological thrillers.

SexyCajun I‘ve been thinking of this book for awhile. This is a book that I read that I forgot the ending to!!!!! 🤷🏼‍♀️😱. I have no idea how or why I can‘t remember. Would you be willing to tell me the ending of you‘re able to sum it up quickly? 14mo
EadieB @SexyCajun Quinn and Esther were roommates. Esther went missing. Alex in another area is shopping for Ingrid who is home bound. Alex lives with his drunken dad. Across the street is a house that is empty where a 5 year old Genevieve died and was buried. Ingrid really put G up for adoption Esther finds G but G puts Esther in a storage shed. Esther and Genevieve are sisters. G goes to Ingrid‘s house and stabs Alex and Quinn finds Esther in shed. 14mo
SexyCajun @EadieB thank you for that! I listened to the audio version and I‘m thinking 💭 my mind may have drifted off somewhere especially if I was listening at work. What a twisted story huh? Lol (edited) 14mo
EadieB @sexycajun I find all her stories are kind of twisted! 14mo

I read this right after The Good Girl and I couldn‘t help comparing them. I felt Don‘t You Cry was a little slow and I kept getting a little bored in all the back stories/descriptions. I would definitely recommend The Good Girl over Don‘t You Cry.

Butterflyamore Good to know. I just started The Good Girl and I am definitely liking it so far. I was thinking I‘d like to check out some of her other books but maybe I‘ll avoid this one. 1y

I think this is my favorite of Mary Kubica's novels (so far). I sympathized with Quinn's plight, loved how she puzzled everything out, and was rooting for her all along. Alex was a bit trickier, but he grew on me, too. I enjoyed the twists and turns this one took...a page-turner in the finest sense of the expression.

Good Grief. Good title for a book. Don‘t cry , after wasting a whole day reading a book that went from good, to mediocre, to a rotten finish. This was like a pretty package, tied with a bow, but open it up, and it‘s an empty box. Told with the same recipe as The Good Girl , a missing girl, the story being told by other characters . It just went from a good start, to a total mess at the end. Not impressed at all with this one. 2 🌟for a good start

britt_brooke Love this honest review! 😆 This is not my kind of book at all so I definitely won‘t be reading it. 2y

Kaye Yes, @HighLadyoftheStacks ... Sometimes if you read one book by an author and don‘t like it, you‘re not tempted to try others. I liked The Good Girl, so immediately tried another by the same lady. Not good. So now I‘m not sure if I‘ll try any more be her or not. I might. Library books though. I wouldn‘t buy one. 2y

Started another Kubica book since I liked the first one so much. This is a fast read. I‘m tag- teaming it by reading plus listening. Already up to pg 120. Very interesting story. I‘m puzzled , as always. Cannot ever figure these out but I‘m enjoying it. Not taxing to the brain but keeps you interested. Told like The Good Girl by different narrators.

I like a good mystery on occasion. This one was easy to read. I didn't guess the twist until 2/3 through, so I consider that a successful story. It was interesting and kept me engaged. I will read this author again.

So this was ... okay. The resolution to the central mystery was interesting and not something I entirely saw coming, though a few aspects I did. And I liked the parallel structure for the most part. But the characters were all pretty flat. And oy, did this need better editing! I work as an editor (for a news site, not books) and I was literally rewriting or taking out like every third sentence. With tighter writing, could've been better. 3/5 ⭐️

Don't You Cry | Mary Kubica
Pickpick

Each story could stand on its own as a novel, the way Kubica intersects them is quite clever, I didn't have it all figured out. There were just enough plot twists, both subtle, and dramatic to make this book a contender to appear on various "best of" lists for 2016. The writing is tight, descriptive, and the pace is fast enough to keep the reader engaged to polish off this book in one sitting.

At the beginning of the story I thought Esther might turn out to be like me because I'm studying occupational therapy too! But she's turning out to be more like a weird roommate I had in college.

And Kelsey Keller is not as funny as my future name which will be Macall McFall this time next year. Maybe I'll like this story more at the end but right now it's a so-so.

DimeryRene I liked this book! Maybe my second favorite of hers. 2y

I was not greatly impressed by this Kubica novel, which ended up being far too predictable (& convenient) at its conclusion. Neither of the characters telling the story seem believable--both are ridiculously doe-eyed and naïve at best--and just when you think the conclusion will make the read worthwhile, Kubica pulls some make-the-sappy-readers-happy BS that blows to smithereens any element of appreciation you may experience. Ugh. ⭐️⭐️

As twisted as her others. Now I've read them all. This one felt different for some reason. I dk why. I love the confidence Mary has to trust her own sense if pacing. Even when I don't understand, I feel safe in her hands. There's a reason for her every choice. All of the loose ends tied up except for the blue contact lenses. Did I miss it?

I'm going interesting on the #NoRain prompt. I actively hate that song. I'm still tired of it from the 90s. I will switch the station every time I hear it.

So, this may be an #unpopularopinion, but I also actively hate Mary Kubica's writing. And I hate that I own this audiobook. Definitely should've libraried this one!

No more hate and hopefully no rain on the fireworks! Happy 4th! 🇺🇸❤️🎆 #90sinJuly
