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 narrator of this book Natalie, displays a very phony southern accent. Her regular voice is fairly good, but her southern accent needs a whole lot of work.
Not at all
Everyone got on my nerves too bad the good turned bad.
As usual Lena got on my nerves. Sarah was a bit crazy in this one. Lena has seemed to take over the series. I have a feeling she will have her own series. I don't really like Lena so I think I would tire of her fast. Sorry one thing I need to say and this is about all stories you have strong characters and the reader sounds like a teenager. Why is it when it's basted on a women character a man will read or the other way around How are narraters picked?? Does anyone know?
I Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
This was not a great follow up from the last installment but.... overall it was ok. I will go on to download the next book in the series with hopes that it will make up where this book lacked. The main characters like Will, Faith, Lena, Sara and some extras are defined. I like how the writer pulled characters from other books that are not in this series. Luckily I knew who they were (the employees from the diner). This allowed me to really connect the dots on where I'd heard them before. Hopefully by the end of this series Will and Sarah will be together and he'll kick Angie to the curb :/
