   The ending is...terrible to say the least
Literally, I was thrilled to read another Natasha Preston book after her award-winning The Cellar, but I 'd say, I wish I didn 't start it with The Lost. This book was really compelling in the way that you are interested in the rooms they have to go into, but beyond the book it is beyond repetitive. You kind of know what happens by the end of the book. At least for the main parts, because the actual ending of the book was a disgrace to any reader. I really wish I would not have read the last chapter and just imagined the end myself ''. I am very disappointed and wish I could take the reading back.
   Great books...Awful endings.
Great books... awful endings. I read 3 now and they are all great books, but the endings are the absolute worst and make me mad just. There is no ending, no closure. They are written for series, but instead of writing a series, she abruptly ends the book. It's confusing and I never read another book by hers.
   Ending is unsatisfying and horrible. Makes the book a waste of time.
The ending is horrible and completely unsatisfying! If you want a good, wrapped ending, do not read this book. It started out intriguing, but then got more warped as it went on. Only the continued to read and skimmed a lot of it to see how the evil characters got their end. But instead of receiving what they deserved, they get a horrible and totally unrealistic, unsatisfying end. Had I known how it ended, I would never have wasted my time or money on this book.
   Definitely OK
Granted, this is YA and I'm a little older, but I often enjoy quick, easy reads in this genre. This was OK, you jump right into the plot. I would have liked a little more background on the missing teens, what the cops were doing, etc. The chain of the events was just too convenient from beginning to end. I finished the book, so it was enjoyable enough, but overall, I was left disappointed. And the ending... left me annoyed versus excited or intrigued.
   Repetitive with a terrible ending
This book was just ok, way too repetitive and it became predictable. I feel like the writing was lazy ''. It would have been SO MUCH BETTER if we had seen all the perspectives of the cops, Piper's parents, the killers, etc. Instead, it was the same thing that happened over and over again. The end is crap unless there is a sequil, but at this point I doubt I read it. This one fell flat just like that.
   Top 5 Favorite Books
About this book, there is so much I can say. The first thing I want to say is that this is the fastest I've ever put a book down because I couldn t finish it. I finished every page, it's like I couldn t turn the page fast enough. After this chapter, I keep telling myself that I 'll put it down. I am recommending this book to one of my good friends, and I am so glad that I took the recommendation. Piper and Hazel are trying to recreate high school life while looking at the town Runaways ''. Little did they know how much they were to run into. Two good-looking, rich college guys catch the eye of Piper and Hazel. Everything is all sweet and innocent until they realize that these two guys take on a whole new meaning to fun and games. I will probably recommend this book to everyone.
   Unsatisfactory read
I wish I did not waste my time. Girls who are self-promised mystery buffs get into a car with boys they don 't know when teenagers are missing. Seemed to me like the author had never written before. Evan was so transparent that he knew he was involved from the first meeting. Really weak read a really terrible ending. It's like the author gave up and said, this is good enough, I'm done.
   What kind of ending was that?
Is there a sequel planned? This was a good book, and was really easy to read.
   Didn’t love this one
Though these were teens in the story, it felt like no one would be this naive to put themselves in such peril to begin with then realizing that they are more than one person, why they don 't fight earlier as a unit, to me baffling. Overall, it just didn 't work for me.
   Lost in this Masterpiece
The Lost Finished copy of Barnes and Noble Edition Natasha Preston 32619 thriller 4 out of 5 The Lost is an exciting thriller about an abnormally high number of teenagers missing in the town where the story takes place. The reader comes to find out that the teenagers are captured captive and thrown into a twisted game that tests the mental and physical strength of the captured teens. I gave the book four out of five stars because I loved the plot, characters and story absolutely. The one major downfall of the book was the ending. I did not care for it personally. I could see how the author thought it was an interesting conclusion ''. I applaud her on trying to make the ending a non-traditional thriller conclusion. I am very interested in reading more novels by Natasha!
