So far, I have really enjoyed all the books by Lisa Gardner. This book was really intriguing, with lots of twists and turns. To be one of several women who survives being a victim of violent attack by the same man is horrendous, but to fight back is even better! You go, girls! Lisa Gardner writes such compelling books. Be sure to check out all her books.
This book, about the trauma of women subjected to rape, is an odd mixture of murder mystery and soap opera. The feelings of the women, and their survival or recovery, are described in great detail. In addition there is a really intriguing plot of really horrible actions by an extremely clever villain.
Survivors Club is not only a great mystery thriller, but also an in-depth look on how people handle rape. This story explores rape and the effects on families, spouses, and friends. Each of the characters handles the trauma of her attack in a different way and provides a broad spectrum of reactions. The story also explores how people deal with tremendous grief and loss. Survivors Club is a bit graphic at times and contains a lot of foul language, which I do not like. However, in spite of this drawback, the story itself is excellent and the twists and turns are exceptional.
This was my second Lisa Gardner on Audible and I really liked both. The narrator was good and the story really kept moving along. The plot and characters were believable.
The story is about rape, so one word of warning is that the author describes some of the details pretty graphically.
All in all a great audio book tho. I would definitely listen to more of her books.

This is my first book by this author and it was awesome. The writing was crisp and descriptive. I felt part of the story. The narration was very good, again drawing me into the story. Totally recommend this book. I'm ready to start another Lisa Gardner book.
I loved this book. In fact, I love all of this author's books. I thought the plot was unique and it kept me guessing right up to the end. I also enjoyed the narrator, whose voice changed with each character. If you like a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, you'll like this one.
This book was very interesting and suspenseful. It is movie material. The reader did a great job with different voices, and it never was dull. My first book by the author and I am buying another today! Loved her work.
Great book. The reader did the characters very well and enhanced an already great story. Interesting twists and turns to the story and you get drawn in to the story immediately. I will definitely try other books by her.
I really enjoyed this book. Great plot, with some twists and turns. Not overly graphic, but you knew what happened. One thing I don't like is the use of the F word!! Is just not needed.
It took me a couple tries to get into this book - kept putting it aside after about an hour ... The reader was ok (a couple silly men's voices but nothing offensive) but the story fell apart with about 2 hours to go. The ending had so many holes in it in re: police procedure that the story got more and more ridiculous, and from a reader standpoint more and more frustrating. Argh.
