Publisher's Summary

Reeve LeClaire is a college student, dammit, not Daryl Wayne Flint's victim. Not anymore-not when Reeve is finally recovering a life of her own after four years of captivity.

Flint is safely locked up in Olshaker Psychiatric Hospital, where he belongs. He is walking the grounds of the forensic unit, performing his strange but apparently harmless rituals. It seems that he is still suffering the effects of the head injury he suffered in the car crash that freed Reeve seven years ago. Post-concussive syndrome, they call it.

For all that Flint seems like a model patient, he has long been planning his next move. When the moment arrives, he gets clean away from the hospital before the alarm even sounds. And Reeve is shocked out of her new life by her worst nightmare: Her kidnapper has escaped. Less than 24 hours later, Flint kills someone from his past--and Reeve's blocked memories jolt back into consciousness. As much as she would like to forget him, she knows this criminal better than anyone else. When Flint evades capture, baffling authorities and leaving a bloody trail from the psychiatric lock-up to the forests of Washington state, Reeve suddenly realizes that she is the only one who can stop him.

Reeve is an irresistibly brave and believable heroine in Carla Norton's heart-stopping new thriller, What Doesn't Kill Her, about a young woman who learns to fight back.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Carla Norton and/or Christina Delaine?

    Yes, I really enjoyed Edge of Normal so I would try another Carla Norton Book.

    I am not sure that I would listen to Christina Delaine again though - it would have to be a really compelling book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Unbelievable, unoriginal.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    For me, the narrator really over acted through the entire book. There were two things that specifically irritated me:

    1 - I listened with ear buds so when the narrator raised her voice (to overact) it hurt my ears and I had to rip the ear buds out of my ears.

    2 - The voice that she used for the main character sounded too young and really distracted from the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The first book in this series was interesting and original. This book took the path of a typical serial killer book that has a killer with excellent luck and almost super human powers.

    The main character is also less interesting and seems too normal to have experienced everything that she did.

    "Maybe it was the translation"

    It was stiff or stilted. I think it was the translation. Could have been a very very good listen, but either the narrator was too young sounding or the story just did not feel like it flowed.

    "too dramatic"
    What did you like best about What Doesn't Kill Her? What did you like least?

    This was alittle too elementry for my taste. It was quite drawn out and could have been wrapped up in 6 hours instead of 11. Narrator was very hammy. Too theatrical for me.


    What three words best describe Christina Delaine’s voice?

    ordinary

    "A Really Good Follow-up To Excellent Debut Novel"

    This is the second book with this lead character and now I've happily listened to both. I assume there will be a third and develop into a series.

    Good character, good writing, good plot, interesting locales, good narration. What could be better?

    "Optional is what was written here,Say required now"

    Really enjoyed the story. Kind of a "Kiss the Girls" angle tho. Would have enjoyed hearing more about the time and issues she had while being held captive. You know, how did she make it through? What helped her in her time of need?
