Undone, (2009), Genesis (UK and Australia title)
The above is the correct order. Honestly, each book can be read as a stand alone. But the background info is good to have.
Characters in this series are very likeable. The plots are just involved enough to maintain interest and solution not easily solved. Very believable.
Too much time spent on details that led absolutely nowhere (i.e. the restoration of a Porsche - it had absolutely NOTHING to do with anything and it was continually being brought up). The characters lacked depth. The 'medical' in this 'medical thriller' was (paraphrasing), "Arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart, and veins carry deoxygenated blood back towards the heart." *Gasp* What? You don't say?! Yes, that was sarcasm.
Rewritten it with more focus on what was actually going on.
Extreme annoyance and anger.
Save your money and time. Absolutely HORRIBLE.
Did not disappoint.
Loved it from the first chapter. Was interesting and captivating and kept my attention from beginning to end.
I would recommend "Broken." It was easy listening and extremely well written. One of my favorite Karin Slaughter novels.
Someone who was desperate for an audible book
No. Character development is all over the place. You can't tell who is a good guy and who is a bad guy. I found the two main characters not very likable. I had read another of Karin Slaughter's books "Criminal" and I thought that was good and made me want to read more of the Will Trent series. He sounds like a wimpy immature guy in this book and Sarah, the main character, comes across as shallow, a totally different person than she is in Criminal. I liked the character, Lena, more than I liked Sarah and I'm not sure where the author was going with these characters.
Someone who wasn't as overdramatic and smaltzy. When she did the laugh of Sarah, she sounded like a witch cackling. I will avoid listening to books with Natalie Ross as narrator.
I felt it was written in the genre of a romance novel, very corny at times.
I'm disappointed in the second book I've read of the Will Trent series and am not sure if I will try to listen to any more. A lot will depend on who the narrator is.
I'm hoping to get Audible to fix this and keep others from reading these out of order.
Someone else alluded to this when they reviewed Undone. I knew almost immediately that something was amiss when I read Broken. You could tell that Will and Sarah knew each other somehow, but were never given enough background to understand fully. It was immediately apparent when I started Undone that it should have come before Broken. I love Karin Slaughter. Will Trent is almost up there with Jack Reacher in the male charachters I LOVE category!
It was a ook book. The ending was good. I just didnt love the slowness of it. But it was not unbearable!
See above lol
I hope not haha

Special agent Will Trent finds his vacation cut short in order to aid Sara, but then both of them find that a vicious killer is protected by an implacable wall of non-co-operation that the cloistered community of Grant County has built around itself.
LIKE THE AUDIO BUT COULD NOT SAY AS THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK I HAVE LISTEN TO HAVE NEVER READ THE PRINTED VERSION
ANOTHER GREAT PERFORMANCE, IF YOU HAVE LISTENED TO MANY AUDIO BOOKS YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT A GOOD NARRATOR IS AND NATALIE ROSS WAS GRATE
middle of the pack
got a bit tired of the story prior to ending
