This one was hard to follow. Too much switching back and forth between timelines. I think I'll lay off reading Karin Slaughter books. I've read several and have decided her style doesn't work for me.
Definitely - have listened to all of her works currently available.
Absolutely - love her storytelling.
Yes, the background on Will and Amanda clarified a lot of questions from previous story lines.
Although I loved the book, I was a bit disappointed. I perhaps expected more based on previous novels..but will definitely look forward to the next one.
I wish Audible would provide a better product. I continually have to go back and try to find my place to listen. Audible apparently disables the ability to burn a book to even one disk so I can listen to it. The iPod just doesn't do well on audiobooks (probably unless you buy them from Apple). It is impossible to get a book burned to CD so I can listen to it and it never plays right on the iPod.
This book kept my interest in general throughout the listen, although my mind tended to wander at times. Audible is horrible about copying to CD;'s so I can listen in the car on the CD Player and go back if my mind wanders. (They kept stonewalling me until I gave up on trying to get a copy to CD. I purchase a lot fewer of them as a result).
If you are a fan of her, probably worth the purchase. I'm not a fan and don't intend to purchase any more of her books.There are better listens for your time.
once was enough.
the history leason that I got about the early 70. About cops and the women who worked with them
I loved that this book goes back, tracing the history of characters you've already fallen in love with from Slaughters previous books. Its also thick with suspense.
Finally understanding the special bond that Amanda and Will share- its been hinted at since the series started, but the reader has never understood why.
I have listened to her before, and this one is just as good as the others. She captures the characters wonderfully, making every one sound unique.
Something like "The Case that Changed it All"
I also love that the ending promises more from this series- a relief because its one of my favorites!!
Enjoyed the back story of Amanda and the good old girls club - how they came to be.
A just OK book.........very long and hard to follow. There seems to be a strong tendency at present to use this flashback format and it wears thin after a while.
I like Evelyn and Amanda. I knew them from a previously heard book. I liked the context in which some of this book takes place with the very different gender roles of the "70s.
Kathleen Early did a good job of differentiating the characters and her diction is perfect but her delivery overall I found distracting. Her emphasis on words in sentences is off the mark. She often emphasizes the first word of sentence when the significance of the statement comes later. There is a cadence sometimes when it does not serve the message well. By the end of the story, I found myself noticing that too much.
Probably, but I would not buy a ticket.
The story is too physically "gory" for my taste. The descriptions of the tortured victims is graphic and some may appreciate that. I did not. But, this is a matter of taste and choice.
I don't think so
I really don't know. I have made bad choices on the last two books and don't want to make a bad 3rd choice.
The narrative was ok, considering what she had to work with.
Disappointment. I was hoping for a good read based on the reviews by quite a number of people.
This book was a rather aimless boring book. One character that had no explanation was Will's dad. Usually there is an explanation of the character and his behavior. We were just expected to "know" why he was doing what he was doing on our own.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
i liked the story. there were a lot of questions that kept bothering me as i read this book. a lot of little mysteries.
it was well done. clear reading. pleasant voice.
the going back and for in time was confusing. as if the author knows that things don't really fit together logically. i found myself rereading parts over again as i became confused.
if the timeline was not so choppy, it would have been a more enjoyable read even if things don't really jive together.
i intend to
i find it annoying that i have to reread this again as i want to be sure i understood the book correctly.
