Vanished – Review by Amos Lassen

Posted: July 29, 2011 in Little Boy Lost, Review

In this book Brian matures a great deal and the book is full of surprises. Brian had great hopes as he got to San Diego and he manages to find a place to live and a job. His landlord, Leo Horshiwitz, is fatherly and he works in the LGBT community. He also meets Emilio and Mike and they quickly become friends. Brian continues his search for Jamie but his luck is lousy and I wanted him to keep trying but I also sensed the pain he felt when things did not work out. It is in this section that Barnaby really catches the reader with some beautiful writing.

Brian had no trouble making friends even with his self- restraint and we see a comedic side of him?  Brian  really lets us get to know him and he keeps us on our toes through the plot  twists even with the sense of mystery that he carries. Barnaby creates wonderful characters and they are all full of life but Brian is her special creation; he is innocent yet wise and I could not help but love him. Barnaby had already sold me on the series with the two earlier books but she has cemented my relationship with the books with this one. It is intensely good storytelling and I am ready for still more.”
