I love these books but finished the Will Trent series having not heard this one because it is listed as part of the Grant County series, rather than Will Trent-- so I missed a big chunk of story going from book 3 to 5.
The book is ok. I have notified Audible about the incorrect book order, and others have notified Audible, but Audible hasn't changed the order yet, so do yourself a favor, and do some research on your own. Also, something is messed up in this series, because in one book, Will Trent has a sexual relationship with someone, and then in the next book, he hasn't yet met this person, so it's strange that in a later book he's talking to the person he supposedly had relations with as if that person is a stranger.... Hmmm.... kooky!
Most interesting is, well, I dunno. I read this one because I'm involved in the series, so I want to finish it. Karin Slaughter isn't the best writer ever, but a lot of her fans love the crap out of her writing. I've even seen reviews where people say "This is the best thing I've ever read!" which makes me think that some people haven't read that much.
The performance is good. I'm sure that Kirstin Potter would have done better.
I could see Broken being on Oxygen, or Lifetime. The stars would probably be leftovers from The Facts of Life.
Poor writing - the day was as cool and wet as being in a dog's nose - are you kidding me?
It made me appreciate good writing even more.
Don't waste your time.
So very disappointed in this book after listening to Slaughter's previous books. The story was just awful. It was not that interesting and not well developed. I was hoping the ending would provide some redemption but it only added to the problems of this book. It was everything I could do just to continue listening.
I enjoyed Slaughter's book. She's top of the game in the genre. She's a good story teller. What pleased me the most was Ross' performance/reading. Rich, vivid characters, each distinct and note worthy.
I've absolutely loved Karin Slaughter's books in the past, especially Triptych. I don't know if it was because the narrator overperformed her role or if the story was just bad, but I had a hard time finishing this. I don't like the idea of a female narrator doing so many male voices...just read the book, please. The story seemed thin and Will didn't foster the sympathy or exude sex appeal as he has in past books - just seemed weak and boring. But really, I was so distracted by the narrator, it might be a better book than I thought.
The contrived Georgia accents attempted by the voice actor are utterly horrible. Maybe it is her attempt at doing a male voice and the unrealistic accent that makes it so bad. It detracts from the story. Wish I could get my money back; this is ridiculous.
