    I am a Barbara Delinsky fan, I have read many of her books, but I must say I was a little disappointed with this book. I just could not connect with the main character, Emily, at all, I found her a bit spoiled and self-centered, and just a bit boring. I could not make the connection between her and the coyotes, it seemed a bit weird to me. However, that does not mean I won't read anymore Delinsky books. (I love her books.) I just think being from the older generation, this book will probably be [...]

    Emily is 32; living in New York; working 16-18 hours a day at a large law firm; married to James, a wonderful man whom she loves dearly, who also happens to be a lawyer, and who works more hours than she does. Like every other morning, when Emily wakes up at 6 am she’s already receiving and sending text messages from her boss, husband, clients, sister, and colleagues, etc. She gets to work and it’s while she’s dealing with a file that she feels the walls closing in on her. She immediately [...]

    You know how sometimes you just have to be in the right place in your life to enjoy a book? Well, this one's not doing it for me. I think I would have liked it better in my younger years. Now, I'm too old, jaded, synical. The protagonist Emily, is a lawyer, escaping from her life in NY. Her husband is also a lawyer, they own a house, a nice car, are both young and beautiful and struggling to conceive a child. Emily does not feel fulfilled in her life and is looking for more. Perhaps if Delinsky [...]

    Today at 5AM I dropped my significant other off at his work. Instead of turning right out of the parking lot as I always do, I turned left and kept going. Yeah, I can relate to this book. It's a different mind-set, driving off into the unknown, leaving the known and dissatisfaction behind. For a while I imagined just driving and driving, stopping in new or even revisiting old places, getting a room, checking in relaxing, walking, exploring, visiting. There are no time constraints, no pressures, [...]

    At one point or another everyone searches for an escape from their busy life. An escape from work, family, technology, friends, obligations. An escape from the harsh reality of the real world. And the promise of escape from my whining child – even a short-term one – is what drew me to this book in the first place.This is the story of 32-year-old Emily – wife of James, employee of Lane Lavash, and a woman who dreams of becoming a mother. Emily thinks she’s living the dream in New York Cit [...]

    All right. Although this book started out promisingly, it got more and more tedious by the page, and then more and more ludicrous by the chapter. It starts off being about a woman who runs away from her New York life to try to reconnect with her inner self, but ends up including wild love-making sessions in the woods, long-winded obsessions about coyotes, arson, hostage-taking, SWAT teams and her husband getting shot. Of course there was paragraph after paragraph about coyotes howling and their [...]

    Escape is the 41st stand-alone novel by popular author, Barbara Delinsky. One Friday morning, New York lawyer Emily Aulenbach takes stock of her life and realises it has strayed so far from her dream that she needs to escape. She takes off her watch, turns off her Blackberry, leaves behind her laptop and, without telling anyone or having any firm plans, heads north. After a few days, she finds herself in Bell Valley, New Hampshire, a place where her life changed radically one summer, ten years a [...]

    I really like Ms. Delinsky's books, but this was not a favorite. It got off to a good start and had some action toward the end, but the majority of the story was a little too "nothing" for me, and I found myself not able to relate to the main character a lot of the time. We were never given sufficient reason for why she would want to escape the way she did, and I would have liked to have seen a few more pages explaining why she found both her husband and her job so unbearable. Once the story got [...]

    I'm very surprised by the number of stars this book received. I have read others by Delinsky that were also escapist fiction, but much better than this one. I read in the afterword that she wrote this book on the advice of her fans. I don't think that was a very good idea. We fans are not authors--what do we know? Premise was ok, the whole "coyote" thing--stupid. And, there were too many things going on at once, but not a lot of detail. I feel like I need to emphasize how lame I felt the coyote [...]

    Life can change all the dreams you've made about your life. Especially when the dreams you had are making you unhappy or near a nervous breakdown. Emily was in her element as a lawyer but was not doing the lawyerly things she planned to do. Her job was making her ill (mentally; would soon become physically). She had to take a huge leap of self-adjustment in order to figure out what was important to her and what she really needed to do in order to feel whole, alive and content with herself.This b [...]

    For decades I have loved the works of B. Delinsky, Anne Rivers Siddens and Nancy Thayer. In the last month I have read the newest novel of all 3 authors and am astounded by what they have lost. Delinsky was always a sure bet for a mesmerizing, gripping and beautifully written novel. Escape escaped all of these adjectives. There were at least half a dozen typos and several grammatical errors, as well! What is going on w/ the editing these days?The premise of this book was a good one: What happens [...]

    Nice, quiet read. Nothing too complex, the characters were people I could relate to and the plot was simple. Who, if they really had the chance, has not wished they could not quit everything they were doing and run away for a few days and just "find themselves"? The main character in the book did just that and she ends up running back to the place where she found her first love (not her current husband) and where her closest girlfriend lives. But wait, before she leaves "her current life" she ge [...]

    For the mostpart I enjoyed Escape. An easy read and a story I could identify with. However**SPOILER**I didn't expect the hostage situation, in fact I found it inconsistent with the storyline. I think what bothered me most was both James and Jude seemed completely out of character in handling the situation. James may have been a great negotiator but I don't believe he would've walked into such a dangerous situation, especially with a baby on the way - he was portrayed as way too responsible for t [...]

    Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you got. Takin' a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you gotta go where everybody knows your name. Emily needed a Cheers. I'm just sayin'. I kept singing the theme song to myself while I read the book.From the outside, it looks like Emily has it all. She's got the gorgeous husband, the expensive home, the high-paying job at the top-notch law firm. But New York hasn't been kind to Emily. S [...]

    I started this book while on holiday back in July and really struggled to get into it. I normally love Barbara Delinsky's novels, but this one didn't even feel like it was written by her. Maybe part of it was the first-person perspective? I just didn't care about the protagonist whatsoever. I kept plugging away at this book in the hope that I would enjoy it more as the story developed, but I got about halfway through and still wasn't any more invested in the story and finally decided to give up [...]

    This was a good story with a happy ending. A very nice read. I enjoyed it. When I started the story I kept thinking, no one would do what this woman did, leave her job, husband and home, just walking away and telling no one where she was going. But the story did make sense and I also realized as I was reading that I had done something similar to this when I was in my 20's. So it can happen and does and after that I could relate to the character and the story. Very well done. Will definitely reco [...]

    I too was unable (or unwilling) to finish the book. So much about it is wrong, from the cookie-cutter characters to the unnatural dialogue. I should write more, but I get tired thinking about it. I'm just glad I didn't waste any more time in attempting to finish it.

    I enjoyed this book so much more than I expected! I have not read Barbara Delinsky in years. Downloaded this to my Kindle for a trip, expecting a lighter read. These characters are well developed; the plot conflicts are real and contemporary. This was a 3.5 ⭐️ for me, but rounded up for GR.

    3.5 i liked this book, i think the added story of Lee and the hostage stuff was too much though there was enough story with Emily and James and her escaping a life she was unhappy with to try and figure herself out.

    Emily and James seem to have it all. They are both high powered New York attorneys with a home in the right neighborhood, and the fast paced lifestyle of the city. However, in a sudden realization, Emily runs home and packs up her bag, grabs the car, and races out of the city with the urgent need to escape. She can't breathe. Her life has turned into a machinical routine and the life with James that she used to love is gone and in its place is 19 hour days, more work at home, and little sleep mu [...]

    What if you looked around one day at the accouterments of the "perfect life" you were leading, and literally couldn't breathe? What if the dreams you had and the people you love feel more like "gadgets" in your world, until you scarcely notice them? What if you feel invisible?Successful New York lawyer Emily Aulenbach experiences all of these feelings one Friday, and acting on impulse, she leaves her office, goes home long enough to grab a few possessions, and takes off. Where will she go? Her p [...]

    I was given the very exciting opportunity to review 'Escape'. This book was published on 5th April 2012 by Canvas, an imprint of Constable & Robinson Limited. Barbara Delinksy is the author of more than twenty bestselling novels with over thirty million copies in print. She has been published in twenty-five languages worldwide. I’ve never actually read any of her books so it was a new experience for me.One Friday morning, New York lawyer Emily suddenly comes to realise that somewhere in he [...]

    There have been times in my life when I wished I had a redo button. Circumstances of my life were not quite as I had envisioned. Such was the case with Emily Aulenbach. Synopsis: On the surface, Emily had a good life, married to a man she loves, nice home, nice car, decent salaries. But, Emily was unhappy with her life. Her job is very demanding, leaving little time for anything else. While cell phones, laptops, and other technology allow for constant connectivity, Emily feels alone and very muc [...]

    I am a big Barbara Delinsky fan. When I saw her new novel was out, I knew I had to read it.This book starts off with a bang. Emily leads a very fast moving, stressful life. One day she has decided she has had enough and just ups and walks out of her job without so much as a word. She goes home, grabs a bag and off she goes, ending up in a town where she spent a very memorable summer. Yep, just ups and leaves her husband and job. There have been times when I would love to take off and just leave [...]

    I liked it but there were some irritants. I had no problem with her stalking the coyotes -- but I have coyotes in my backyard and they don't just hang around when you approach. They run. Fast. So that was just an eye roller for me, everytime she went to connect with herself by staring into the golden eyes of the coyote. Yeah, not gonna happen.The second was it was based in a fictional town in N.H. and the characters were given the backwoods accent that would have been completely easy to leave ou [...]

    Who hasn't thought about tossing everything and just running away? This story starts out simply enough with a Emily, a corporate lawyer in New York, realizing her life isn't what she thought it would be. She loves her husband and like being a lawyer, but finds herself more on the side of those she is supposed to be defending her client against. Emily decides she has had enough and simply walks out--on everything. She ends up driving until she discovers herself in a familiar setting where her bes [...]

    3 1/2 stars. Entertaining read owning a decent argument for not staying in a job that one dreads going to daily.

    This started out with so much promise.The idea of a woman just up and ditching everything to discover herself and what she really wants. Sounded thought provoking, exciting, and I was expecting an adventure. But what I got was very anti climactic, predictable and filled with characters that never came to life for me. First of all the place she decides to "escape" to gave me claustrophobia,(how are you escaping if everyone there knows everything about you?) and Jude (ex boyfriend) was just a big [...]

    Sometimes you just need to stop the world and try to get off which is what Emily does when she walks out on her job (lawyer at a big NYC firm), her husband (with whom she is trying to get pregnant, unsuccessfully) and her life (which she doesn't have) and travels to Bell Valley to find herself. This isn't a typical story. She doesn't fall back into the arms of her first love, Jude, although he also returns to Bell Valley as the prodigal son. Instead, Delinsky takes Emily through a self explorati [...]
