The Never List by Koethi Zan


"The Never List"  is touted at this years "Gone Girl", but it falls short. It is about four young women who are abducted and held captive in a cellar for many years. The story flips back and forth, from the time in the cellar to present time.

Each women has her own demon's to deal with and when their captures time is up for parole, they each react differently. Sarah is essentially the main character and the story is mainly told for her point of view. Her character grows by leaps and bounds but the plot becomes over exaggerated and there are way too many coincident's to make things believable.

I have never met a bigger cast of idiotic characters before in my life, however the story managed to keep me drawn in and the ending does have a nice twist to it.

Grade: C+
