    I got to read an early manuscript of The Lost Night at the author's request and I couldn't put it down. All the characters felt like people I had known for years, for better or worse, and the novel really took me back to my early post college years living in New York City for the first...

    Wow. What an ending. Though I'd originally found myself unable to put THE LOST NIGHT down because of Bartz's sharply insightful writing, I was a total ball of nerves by the last fifty pages. I also loved her deeply immersive descriptions of Brooklyn hipster life, which rang true to my ...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest DNF @ p.72 A lot of people were comparing THE LOST NIGHT to a Lifetime movie, but for me, I was reminded of Douglas Coupland. With THE LOST NIGHT, Andrea Bartz tries to tell the tale of a generation, with a murder ...

    10 years ago, Lindsay had a blackout on the night her friend, Edie, died. Her death was ruled a suicide. After meeting with another friend from 10 past, Lindsay begins to think perhaps Edie was murdered and questions her own part in it. I really enjoyed reading THE LOST NIGHT, and I hi...

    I loved this book and couldn?t put it down! Absolutely inhaled it during my commutes to and from work for a few days in a row. Found myself eager to leave work in the evenings so I could keep reading. It reminded me of Gillian Flynn?s novels?dark, twisted, with complicated female...

    That ending!! I spent the whole book thinking something else happened to Edie... I was way off. I wish there had been more chapters from the other friends perspective because Lindsay kind of got on my nerves, but I couldn't put the book down the last 150 pages. Awesome debut! ...

    Thank you to NetGalley for a Kindle ARC of The Lost Night. If I had known this was about a bunch of self-centered, whiny, bratty, selfish twits, I would not have requested it. All the typical tropes are here: In a small circle of friends, Edie was the gorgeous, charismatic o...

    While I appreciate what this book tried to do, it unfortunately fell a bit flat for me. I found the main character to be extremely irritating and not in the "I love to hate characters" kind of way. I knew exactly what the twist was going to be very quickly and that only made it all the...

    I really enjoyed reading The Last Night and I highly recommend it. I was fully engrossed?pulled into the story completely. Bartz captured the energy of being young in New York and depicted time and place beautifully; the setting and happenings at the Bushwick loft reminded me of more...

    Andrea Bartz has taken on a number of difficulties and done them justice. Lindsay, the unreliable narrator (a difficult task in itself) is looking back 10 years to the unexpected suicide of a shining, but mercurial friend during their years of alcohol soaked, party focused living in a ...

    *yaaaaaaaawwwwnnn* This book is reminiscent of a really bad Lifetime movie starring a bad actress from a 90's drama that you end up watching on a Sunday afternoon because you can't find the remote. The Lost Night lost me about halfway through when I realized it was turning into ...

    I absolutely love any sort of book that deals with old murders and unsolved cases and this one appealed to me even more so because it?s unknown whether Edie was even murdered or if she committed suicide like the cops assumed. There was a lot of unknown factors in the one across the b...

    The Lost Night by Andrea Bartz took a bit to get into but once I did it was hard to put down. While at times the characters were very annoying it was a story that will keep you guessing. 10 years ago Lindsays best friend killed her self alone in her apartment after a long drunken ni...

    I read The Lost Night over a weekend, and for the last 50 or so pages, couldn't put it down. The author creates an immersive, cinematic world of 2009-era Brooklyn, inhabiting a series of characters in a way that feels deeply candid and real. It's an excellent thriller (I didn't manage ...

    Close to the 10 year anniversary of the suicide of twenty-three year old Edie, her former roommate and former best friend, have lunch together, after not seeing each other for almost 10 years. Sarah, the roommate, and Lindsay, the best friend, had been together with Edie's ex boyfriend...

    The main character is yet another insufferably puerile thirty-three year old woman trying to determine her role in a tragedy that occurred ten years earlier among her hipster friends in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. This is a protracted tale that is predictable and mundane...

    This book is a feminist masterpiece. From its 20-something female protagonist looking for something real in a sea of f*** boys, to the 30-something version who feels like commitment is still too much to ask for, The Lost Night jumps into the complex tangle of relationships and love. It...

    After 10 years of no contact, Lindsay and Sarah get together. They reminisce about their friend, Edie, who had died from a gun shot to her head. Although it was ruled as a suicide, Sarah mentions that the wound was on the right side of Edie's head and that Edie was left-handed. Then th...

    So this was the first book in a long-time that towards the end I sat up straight and said "HOLY CRAP," out loud. All the threads to the mystery were there but they were woven in so well, integrated so expertly, and most importantly, I was so locked in on the first person narration and ...

    I read this novel as if compelled, staying up way too late each night until I reached the end. And what an ending it was. But it?s the beginning that grabs and holds. This novel never lets go. It is a novel that flips effortlessly between the lingering edge of youth, and the narrowed...

    Most of us have a had a night out and we wake up and can't remember how it ended... maybe it was because we were tired or maybe alcohol came into play. The Lost Night touches heavily on a night like this. Edie is a popular 23 year old who takes her own life... or does she? Ten years la...

    I got to read an advanced manuscript of this book, and I finished it within two days. It's a whodunnit for sure, but it's more than a typical thriller. The psychology of the characters is so complex and the plot twists are so unexpected that I was second-guessing myself at every turn. ...

    This book is so much fun and is one of the most original and unpredictable thrillers I?ve read in a long time. I received an advanced manuscript of The Lost Night and was kept on my toes until the last page. I love a good thriller but can normally spot the twists from a few chapters ...

    I had the joy of reading an early draft of The Lost Night, and love the world it creates. The dialogue especially blew me away. Seeing how the characters gush to their friends about a new boy they laid eyes on at a party, then send stream-of-consciousness emails to each other about the...

    I read an advance copy of this urban mystery novel, set mostly in the artist lofts of Bushwick around 2009, when this neighborhood was the center of the up-and-coming art world. Knowing the scene from my Brooklyn post-college days, I felt that the setting and the ?lifestyle? was we...
