yes, not so much back and forth in time, get lost
Too Much Jumping
If the story could have stayed in the same time frame more, it would have been easier to follow.
A better author
Not anything by this author
No--she's not a good reader
Too many to count
I don't want to read something I could have written myself. This is basic play-by-play. And the narrator, while not as bad as some, is not good at this job.
I guess I'm appalled with all the stories of men torturing women in increasingly gruesome ways. This is, in my opinion, not entertainment or even good literature.
I did not need to purchase, nor listen to, this book. The redeeming feature in this story is that two women fought back. The mid-to middle century opinions of men towards women and their acceptance of this treatment, ring true here as does the setting in Atlanta. I lived there during this time and recall the attitudes.
Though I thought the number of characters were a bit difficult to follow (unless completely focused) I very much enjoyed this book. I normally don't like female narrators but I did this one and would listen to her in another book.
This is my favorite. I loved the narration, her voice, characters, pauses ... everything! Getting to enjoy the characters more and more and enjoy how they are inner-twined.
Karin's stories are a good and grim reminder of women and black progress since the 60s with a mystery, and a good and grim reminder that some things haven't changed. Thank you !
I have enjoyed all of Karin Slaughter's books. This Will Trent series is the best. Criminal is by far my favorite book. So many twists and turns. Don't miss this book!
I like to read/listen on my way to and from work...it keeps me OFF my phone and FOCUSED on driving!! ;)
I have loved the Will Trent series and this book not only had a good narrator but added an amazing piece to Will's life. I almost wish this book was in the beginning of the series though so that we would have better understood the relationship between Amanda and Will. I think Karin Slaughter is an excellent writer and she thinks of everything!!
Corny, stilted, and the final straw was the horrible narration.
Maybe I just grew bored with these novels as they slowly sank into touchy-feely nonsense. Where was the growing tension of a good crime plot? Will's wounding in his early life has played out. The constant digressions into psychological wounding are so overemphasized that the actual plot is reduced to irrelevance.
I will never again suffer the monotoned, superficial work of Early's narration.
Slaughter should have stuck with Michael Kramer!
