"Brown makes these desperate women amazingly sympathetic even as they make foolish choices, and the same goes for Frankie B., despite his appalling mistreatment of Camille. It all adds up to some seriously twisted problems leading to some cliffhanging shockeroos that undoubtedly mean a sequel is on its way." (Publishers Weekly)
You know, I can appreciate a good series, but for the story to just end abruptly like that makes me feel like I got jipped. I mean when you read the description for the story, you're waiting on Camille to snap, hell I feel she has more than enough reason. And if her sister was gonna snap, it should've been on that crazy ass man she was seeing. I'm disappointed and I wish I could refund this. Not happy with this book. Not happy at all...
The both the narrator and the editor were terrible; it seems like the narrator had trouble reading the story and they didn't even bother to correct the mistakes.
As for the actual story, it was just okay. I think there too many "main characters" and as other reviewers mentioned, the ending sucks. It's like the author just got tired of writing or something.
LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
I was so into this book that I could not wait to hear the sequel to this one. Very well developed characters and I could feel all the emotion of each character and their personal dillemmas. This was like the black mafia and the drama made it so easy to follow.
My first read was "White Lines" and I instantly became a Tracy Brown fan! It was superb and one of my favorite novels. I guess had I not read "White Lines", I would not have expected so much from Snapped. The two definitely cannot compare. I must say, if I had not ordered the audio version of Snapped, I probably would have never finished the book. It was very slow from the beginning until almost the end. If I had purchased the hardcopy instead, I'm sure it would have more than likely ended up on my book shelves in the "never finished" collections. To say the least, I was disappointed. The plot was very predictable and the ending was too much like a Friday soap opera.The only reason, I will tune in on Monday and read Snapped part 2 is in hope Camille will gain vendication f/ her heartless and shallow husband's deceit. Tracy Brown, please redeem yourself in Snapped 2!
Ok this book kept my interest but it ends like a soap opera cliff hanger (only you dont get to see the next show in 24 hours). I was actually wondering if the last chapter was missing. The narrator's voice is ok but she reads as if she never practiced but picked up the book and just got going. Her voice rises and falls at the wrong time...and she actually repeated a phrase.
This books keeps you interested then JUST ENDS. I have a lot of questions that went unanswered. Narrator does repeat a phrase once, I think even twice. Overall, I guess I will be waiting for part II if there is one.
Overall, I loved the story, but what messed it up for me was the narrator. She stuttered and repeated sentences a few times. She messed up the flow. I think this novel should be narrated again!!
