Fallen | [Karin Slaughter]

Fallen

There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother.

Publisher's Summary

There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother. When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions, not enough answers. To find her mother, she'll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and they'll both need the help of trauma doctor Sara Linton. But Faith isn't just a cop anymore--she's a witness. She's also a suspect. The thin blue line hides police corruption, bribery, even murder. Faith will have to go up against the people she respects the most in order to find her mother and bring the truth to light--or bury it forever.

Karin Slaughter's most exhilarating novel yet is a thrilling journey through the heart and soul, where the personal and the criminal collide, and conflicted loyalties threaten to destroy reputations and ruin lives. It is the work of a master of the thriller at the top of her game, and a whirlwind of unrelenting suspense.

    Story
    "Not her best"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend this because I found the story convoluted and unbelievable. At the same time [and this is a spoiler alert] I hate it when everything boils down to that same old saw: she had an inconvenient baby.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karin Slaughter again?

    Sure.


    Which character – as performed by Shannon Cochran – was your favorite?

    I had a hard time with this. Grown women acting like love-sick teenagers; or just sick. A grown man who was fully capable everywhere but in his own home, teenagers who are one dimensional. I didn't buy any of it.


    Was Fallen worth the listening time?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Slaughter used gratuitous violence instead of good story-telling. Her characters were stock people. It was like listening to a child move paper dolls around, albeit a very sick child.

    "Decent book for my first audible book"
    Where does Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audible book. The performance was good but I felt the story faltered a little bit near the end. Overll enjoyable

    "Hard to stop listening!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fallen the most enjoyable?

    I stopped reading thrillers for awhile because the plots had become predictable (that's probably MY issue though), and took a break to read some sci-fi. I can't remember what made me download this particular book, but I'm glad I did. The book was full of twists and surprises, none of which I saw coming. None of the characters were particularly likeable, and by the end of the book it felt like I knew them.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Every character has a flaw, and the flaws are so interwoven that I never knew what to expect.


    What about Shannon Cochran’s performance did you like?

    At first I thought the narrator was struggling with some of the dialects, but as I got further into the book it sounded smoother. It was very easy to tell the characters apart.


    Any additional comments?

    Fallen isn't an especially long book, but it held my attention and made me listen a little longer than I'd intended to! This would be a great book to accompany a project like sealing the deck or wallpapering.

    I am an avid reader! Now I guess an avid Listener. I am addicted to Audible, and love how it keeps me focused when I am trying to get my work done. I am also a really fun kids entertainer... some Adults too!

    I enjoyed this, but I was kinda glad when it ended. the author kept you in suspense way too long. I think the story could have been finished about 2 hours sooner. good story just dragged some.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "What a Ride!"

    Secrets have a way of coming back to haunt you, and boy did it. Great story, character development, total set up, nosy neighbor, couple of twists and you have a very good story. I will definitely read more stories by this author. Amanda made me angry a couple of times, but I guess to be in her position you have to be a hard-ass.

    Narrator did a credible job, she didn't turn me off at all, you get used to her.

    "Great Narration"
    Where does Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book took a little while for me to get into, probably because I didn't realize I was reading the 5th book in a 6 book series. But the Narration preformed by Shannon Cochran was great. She has soo many different voices its easy to follow along as to who is talking in the book & she switches between them flawlessly.

    "A great suspense thriller with unexpected ending"
    What did you love best about Fallen?

    The book gripped you in immediately which was great since many good books start so slow. The characters seem very real and I cared about them.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This plot did keep me on the edge. My husband wanted me to watch TV with him but I couldn't put the book down so we watched much later on after I finished the book.


    Have you listened to any of Shannon Cochran’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard her before but I think she did a great job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    One of the few thrillers I've really enjoyed in a long time.

    I always finish a book so I finished this ridiculous story. A cop who can't read? Come on. And that's just one of the absurdities.

    Love the Will Trent books, this one gave us a different side of Amanda (she has is not a complete hard ass). Couldn't put it down!
