Do Not Become Alarmed

From a beloved, award-winning writer, the much-anticipated novel about what happens when two families go on a tropical vacation - and the children go missing.When Liv and Nora decide to take their families on a holiday cruise, everyone is thrilled. The ship's comforts and possibilities seem infinite. The children - two eleven-year-olds, an eight-year-old, and a six-year-oldlove the nonstop buffet and the independence they have at the Kids' Club. But when they all go ashore in beautiful Central America, a series of minor misfortunes leads the families farther and farther from the ship's safety. One minute the children are there, and the next they're gone. What follows is a riveting, revealing story told from the perspectives of the adults and the children, as the once-happy parents - now turning on one another and blaming themselves - try to recover their children and their lives. Celebrated for her ability to write vivid, spare, moving fiction, Maile Meloy shows how quickly the life we count on can fall away, and how a crisis changes everyone's priorities. The fast-paced, gripping plot of Do Not Become Alarmed carries with it an insightful, provocative examination of privilege, race, guilt, envy, the dilemmas of modern parenthood, and the challenge of living up to our own expectations....

    Do Not Become Alarmed. If you don't read this book, you're not missing much.

    It tells the tale of two cousins, Liv and Nora, who take a cruise together with their families during the Christmas holiday. On a trip to the island, the men go golfing and the ladies plan a day of zip lining with their kids. A scary car accident derails their original plans and the group heads off to the beach.

    That's when things go awry.

    I really enjoyed this book - my first by this author. It was a compelling read - two families go on a cruise and their children go missing. I thought that the character development was uneven in that I never could remember which children went with which family and I also could not get a sense of the personalities of most of the children. Even when references were made as to their characteristics, it didn't necessarily jive with my gut feelings about them. But the parents were very well developed ...more

    I received this book free from Good Reads.

    It is about two cousins Liv (plus husband Benjamin & 2 children Sebastian 8yrs old & Penny 11yrs old) & Nora (plus husband Raymond & 2 children Marcus 11yrs old & June 6yrs old).

    They have decided to take a 2 week cruise down the coast of Mexico & Central America over Christmas & the new year. Things do not turn out as they expected.

    I really enjoyed reading it, it is a page turner & with something happening on every page &a

    Do not be alarmed if you can't finish this overwrought and ridiculous tale of rich white people losing track of their irritating children.

  • Sam (Clues and Reviews)

    Do Not Become Alarmed, the newest release by Maile Meloy, follows a family that meets devastation when their children disappear while on a cruise in Central America. I started this book as a buddy read with Janel from Keeper of Pages; we have been wanting to do a buddy read for a while and, when I won this book from Goodreads and it was coming up in Janel’s TBR pile, it was the perfect opportunity to get it done!

    It isn’t often that I discuss a book I absolutely hated on Clues and Reviews but I

  • Rachel Hall

    Disappointingly, my pulse never even progressed to a heightened state during the course of this awkward thriller. Riddled with implausibilities, this tale of missing children never really gets into its stride and Maile Meloy falls back on some appallingly bad national stereotyping and some unconvincingly simplistic characters with little evidence of any emotional investment. However, the biggest problem for me is that Do Not Be Alarmed never manages to convey a consistently serious atmosphere, s ...more

  • Jenny (Reading Envy)

    This is a bit different from what I'd come to expect from Maile Meloy - it's a thriller about a cruise ship excursion gone bad. The thriller aspect is decent and the rich white people (who are obnoxious overall) don't escape completely, but I struggled to feel the book was entirely realistic. First of all, the cruise line unceremoniously dumps their luggage on the pier when they fail to return from a cruiseline-official excursion. Considering that this is an official excursion AND they are some ...more
