    I’ll preface this by saying that many readers will be enthralled by Ghosted. It may be my cold, dark heart but I am not among them. After spending six days together, Eddie and Sarah fall hopelessly in love. Both are pushing forty and I can’t help but think this is quite a stretch. Poof! Eddie disappears; Sarah is devastated and spends an inordinate amount of time trying to find him. This was tedious and rather pathetic. Eddie’s side of the story is equally insipid. Again, blame my cold, dark hea ...more

    Mi-a stârnit interesul titlul, curioasă fiind să descopăr povestea. Este o carte a emoțiilor, a bucuriei, tristeții și a fericirii. O poveste de viață ce are loc în Anglia, unde autoarea reușește efectiv să ne poarte. Bazată pe suspans și mister, “Bărbatul care n-a mai sunat” este asemănătoare cu un labirint. Cititorul este tot timpul în ceață, indiferent ce presupune că se va întâmpla...constată că nu se întâmplă.

    Ghosted is a spectacular debut novel; it is beautifully written and perfectly paced, and I could not put it down until I was finished reading it. Walsh kept me guessing the entire time, and I thought the book was truly perfect from beginning to end. The plot and storytelling are unique, the characters are highly likeable, and the ending is both satisfying and believable. My one small complaint is that the book cover is not great; it bears no relation to the story and is not very appealing. Other ...more

    This is one of my favorite fiction reads of 2018. I think it helped just jumping right into the book without rereading the synopsis that I had long ago forgotten. Really all you need to know is Sarah and Eddie spend an incredible week together even though they have just met, make plans to see one another after Eddie comes back from vacation, and then Eddie ceases all communication with Sarah and she is left wondering what happened.

    I just really love how the author used the whole "ghosting" conc

    * super usor de citit, pentru ca am devorat-o - trebuia sa stiu ce se intampla

    Some books are entertaining, some books are affecting and some, like this one, creep under your skin, travel through your veins and settle in your heart. I'm writing this review feeling as though I have lived another life and sudden woken up in a new one - that's how deeply immersed I was in The Man Who Didn't Call (or Ghosted as it's called in the U.S.) I could write about the mystery at the heart of this book and the many brilliant twists that I didn't see coming (VERY rare) but what will stay ...more

    Nu vreau să vă dau multe detalii. Asta ar însemna să distrug tot farmecul acestui roman. Știți cum e conceput? Ca un labirint. Eu așa l-am perceput. Sunt zeci de căi către ieșire și pornești pe fiecare plin de speranță și convins că acela este drumul. Exact când crezi că ești aproape, dai peste o fundătură. Un lucru la care nu te-ai fi gândit. Te întorci și spui „ei, bine, la asta nu m-am așteptat”. Simți fiorii dați de starea de euforie care te cuprinde, simți suspansul și misterul năvălind pes

    Un pic cam exagerată povestea de pe la jumătatea cărții încolo, dar adevărul e că nu m-a deranjat atât de tare pe cât aș fi crezut. A ajutat foarte mult și stilul lui Rosie Walsh, care nu a fost excesiv de înflorat sau de dulceag. A știu cum să dozeze umorul (chiar m-am trezit uneori că chicoteam în timp ce citeam), durerea și iubirea. Walsh a mizat foarte mult pe puterea destinului când și-a închipuit povestea, iar în mine a găsit teren fertil pentru așa ceva. :D

    I love this book with my whole heart. It’s about love and loss, joy and grief, regret and hope. What an extraordinary debut, masterfully told—one that you will read in one sitting. As a writer I am in awe of how skillfully the story unfolded, and as a reader I’m already missing these wonderful characters.

    Atunci cand vorbim despre povesti de dragoste de orice fel, ma ofer voluntar sa sufar, sa plang si sa ma bucur alaturi de personajele cartii. Iubesc acest gen si orice carte cu subiect interesant, cu o intriga siropoasa si personaje deosebite imi starneste atentia negresit.

    Am inceput “Barbatul care n-a mai sunat” nestiind nimic despre autor sau intriga, decat ceea ce descrierea mi-a oferit. Bine am facut, pentru ca aceasta poveste nu merita spoilere de niciun fel. Este exact genul meu de povest

    I’m pretty excited about The Man Who Didn't Call… oh ok I’m VERY excited about this novel! I went into this novel thinking it would be a mystery but it turned out to be quite an emotional read and so beautifully written! The majority of it is a romantic love story type of book of two people who can't be together, with just a bit of mystery mixed into it in the beginning to get you really hooked. Maybe some might find the resolving of his disappearance a bit slow-going but be patient, it'll be so ...more

I'm still drying my eyes from all of the tears and sobbing!!

Cei doi isi petrec urmatoarele 6 zile impreuna, pana in ziua in care Eddie trebuie sa plece intr-o vacanta planificata cu mult timp inainte sa o cunoasca pe Sarah.

    The author for this book, Rosie Walsh, is a brilliant creative genius. Read it, to believe it. I went into this book thinking it'll be a romantic comedy type book, but something leaning on the more upsetting side... I was wrong, this wasn't that. It was far better. The kind of book you look to read but frustratingly manages to elude you in your search... A gem! Just don't let the cover deceive you!

    Bărbatul care n-a mai sunat este înainte de toate o căutare a propriei linişti, emoţională şi sufletească. O oază unde durerea, suferinţa şi regretul rămân îngropate în nisipul auriu, ars de soare al deşertului pe când tu, însetatul, te răsfeţi la umbra palmierului având acces, în sfârşit, la fericire.

De twist is heel sterk en ik heb genoten van elke bladzijde. Als je deze zomer één boek gaat lezen, laat het dan alsjeblieft deze must read zijn. Veel leesplezier!

    La inceput nu m-a dat pe spate insa am continuat sa citesc pentru ca stiam ca sora mea nu s-a ridicat din canapea pana n-a terminat-o. Iar sora mea e un reper foarte bun care a citit la viata ei mai mult decat alti oameni vor citi in 10 vieti de acum incolo si stiu ca nu o impresioneaza ceva asa usor. Frumoasa povestea si deloc previzibila chiar si atunci cand ti se pare ca ar avea un deznodamant previzibil. As fi putut sa ma prind de final de la inceput? Au fost semne? Poate ca da, nu stiu.

    I wanted to like this book, but I just didn't buy the story. The first half dragged on for so long, and then in the second half, a surprising twist is revealed, but I still didn't feel any connection to either of the characters. They were not fully fleshed out and the trajectory of the story was far fetched. So, not awful, but not good either.

    The first novel I've finished in 2018 is a hard to put down psychological suspense about coping with pain and loss, through the power of love.

    I personally haven't heard about the word 'ghosted' until a couple of weeks ago, and it deals usually with the relatively recent phenomenon - in the age of Internet - when the part of a relationship - usually a short-term - completelly disappears without any 'online' trace. No phone calls, no e-mails answered, no Facebook or WhatsApp replies. He or she ju

    There should be a disclaimer saying how this book will make you openly weep from such emotional experiences!

    As the story build, developing understanding for what happened and who it happened to you take it all in until realization hit you- which feels emerging from a dark wood forest into a clearing.
    This story solidifies and becomes as heart wrenching as it is redemptive - Breaking you down to rebuild you back up to a satisfying climax.

    Definitely for anyone who is ever loved and lost and wonder

    Thank you to Pamela Dorman Books and NetGalley for the advanced copy.

    I thought this was going to be kind of romance-y, and it was, but it was also a mystery, and it surprised me a few times along the way. I found it a little melodramatic for my tastes, but I did enjoy it overall. Fans of The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo will definitely want to check this one out.

    Ghosted is a beautifully written debut novel that I could not put down. I started this gem intending to read a bit then go on with my day but Rosie Walsh had other plans. What begins with the perfect meet-cute moment between Sarah and Eddie in the English countryside turns in to a gripping suspense that will leave your jaw dropped, on the edge of your seat whispering "no way, NOOO WAY!" This book will have you up past your bedtime repeating the mantra 'just one more chapter' till you reach the l ...more

    Despite the title, this is not horror/thriller; it's "ghosted" in the millennial way of someone disappearing on you, not calling/texting after going out with you. The book is a bit of a tearjerker, mostly a romance, and yet I was sucked in, even though this isn't my normal type of book to read. Once I got into it, the book kept me on my toes with some clever twists, and I definitely enjoyed it, even staying in bed long after I should have gotten up for the day to finish it.

    Ghosted is a lovely and absorbing novel with a uniquely modern twist on the oft told tale of doomed lovers. Walsh has written a mesmerizing page turner that seamlessly marries romance, humor, and pathos with a compelling mystery. I loved these characters and was eager to see how, and if, their love story could have a satisfying resolution in the face of deeply held secrets.
