No Exit by Taylor Adams

“The difference between a hero and a victim? Timing.”

Like watching a fast-paced suspense action movie.

Darby is a college student who gets trapped at a remote rest stop in the middle of a blizzard in the Colorado Rockies. While trying to get cell service, she stumbles upon a girl locked in someone’s van. There are four other people at the rest stop. She doesn’t know who is responsible and without a cell phone signal, she doesn’t have a way to call anyone for help.

The characters were well-developed. I couldn’t help but to root for Darby, the main character, through every twist and conflict. She’s tenacious, brave, and resilient. You can’t help but to like her.

The author did a great job of keeping you engaged. I read this book in two sittings. I couldn’t put it down.

But like most action movies I watch, I had to turn off my brain to stop myself from asking the obvious. Why wouldn’t Darby or anyone else have an iPhone charger in 2019, especially on a long road-trip? How does her phone maintain less than 10% battery charge in the freezing cold for over 12 hours? She and a nine-year old girl just instinctively know how to use a gun? She cut off her finger with a Swiss army knife in seconds? But if I ignored all these implausible scenarios, the book was a lot of fun to read!

If you’re looking for a book that will pull you in during the first couple of chapters and not let you go until the very end, then definitely pick up this book. It makes for a great escape. Just turn off the analytical parts of your brain and read it for what it is.

Rating: 6/10
