I first read this book back in the 80's. It was the first "adult" chapter book I ever read & I loved it! Mysteries/Suspense became my very favorite book genre and I followed MHC's books all through my teens. Along with Agatha Christie, Clark became 1 of my top favorite authors.
When reading Where Are the Children? keep in mind this book was written 34yrs ago &things were done differently back then (ex.police investigations) & little conviences such as cell phones were unheard of! It is still 1 of my favorites &I revisit it every 5-6 yrs or so.

This book is by far not my favorite, with too many charcters to follow, some pretty out there coincidences and being somewhat predictable this book is a decent book and an easy read, but not the best suspense novel out there.

    Very Dissipointed

    I was very dissipointed in this book. I usually really enjoy the suspense in her books, but this on was so dull. My friends told me to read it, and when I did it was a total let-down. They revealed the killer too soon, so it really ruined the ending. By the middle of the book I knew who killed who and why it was happening. Also MHC didn't really sum up the whole story at the end. She never said why this person did what they did or why some characters were acting the way they were,etc. An awful novel. I difiantly do not recommen
