    I read The Last Woman in the Forest during one night of wretched insomnia, but I can't help but wonder if the gripping readability of this outstanding thriller simply made it impossible for sleep to catch hold and take me under. Marian Engström works in a rarefied circle of wildli...

    Previously reviewed on The Good, The Bad, and The Unread: While I love mysteries, I have a bit of a gripe with most suspense (romantic or otherwise), in that a lot of the plots rely on at least one protagonist (generally female) doing things that are highly inadvisable, if not downr...

    In the end, I very much enjoyed this book; in the beginning, I wasn't so sure. The "thrilling" action really didn't pick up until the last quarter or so; after that, my eyes were glued to the Kindle pages and I didn't put it down till I'd reached the last page. The story centers on ...

    This book starts off strong - the opening scene really gets you quite interested... and then it just kind of goes downhill from there. Marian works in the wild, tracking and monitoring various animals - it's a lonely life without much romance or time for anything else. Although it's fr...

    Good story with lots of twists. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This book is written in a different manner than what we see in a typical suspense thriller or murder mystery. This book reads more as a women?s fiction story that evolves into something much more sinister. Written in short s...

    This book is psychological suspense, with really no suspense until the last 5% of the book. Marian and Tate become romantically involved while working together on conservation projects that involve tracking and monitoring various animals. After Tate dies, Marian begins to suspect (base...

    Very disappointing, especially considering that the author is an English professor. Heartbreaking back stories that were the inspiration for her to write this, but it was still not the least bit engaging. I had no connection with any of the characters, but felt terrible for the poor do...

    A chilling first chapter gave this one a pretty suspenseful beginning, but overall it was more of a slow burn. Les Becquets writes beautifully and captures the descriptions of the forest setting and the atmosphere perfectly. I could easily picture the terrain, the wildlife and s...

    The opening chapter to Diane Les Becquet?s The Last Woman in the Forest is positively chilling! From the moment I read it, I seriously couldn?t put the book down. I wouldn?t say this is an action-fueled thriller, but it is absolutely a plot-driven thriller. As I read clue after c...

    Tl;dr: A lyrically written novel about a serial killer, the nuance of life, and how beauty and terror are encapsulated in nature. (Seriously!) The Last Woman in the Forest is ostensibly a thriller, but it's more of a psychological profile of how closely linked life and death are, bo...
