Review: Shelter by Harlan CobenHmn, mixed feelings about this one. This is a young adult spin off from the well known Myron Bolitar series. I read it with great eagerness but couldn’t shake off a feeling of dissatisfaction.This book is based around Mickey Bolitar, Myron’s fifteen-year-old nephew who came to live with him in the book ‘Live Wire’ when his father, Myron’s brother died in a car crash and his mother ended up in drug rehab.If you haven’t read any Myron Bolitar books you’ll probably love this.

Mickey’s girlfriend disappears and he tries to find her. Along the way he finds lots of mysteries and trouble, some of it very physical! It is a real page turner and his handsome character with great physique and disarming one liners are very appealing.However, if you have read Myron Bolitar books you will find the character all too familiar.

Mickey is basically Myron just younger. Although Mickey apparently can’t stand his uncle he is exactly the same in character, build and even one liners. Because of this I had to constantly remind myself that this was another character, that he was only fifteen and that Winn was not going to pop up at any minute to rescue him. Myron in this book is so ineffectual as a guardian it is really irritating.

In his own books Myron is the one who rescues the girls with the help of his lethal weapon friend, Winn. I found myself becoming exasperated wanting Myron to act or for Mickey to seek his help which doesn’t happen.Of course this is young adult fiction and as a young adult fiction writer I know not to expect an adult to come to the rescue.Did I enjoy this book?

Yes. Will I read the next one? Yes. Will I continue to be exasperated about Myron’s lack of involvement? Probably.
