Publisher's Summary

At long last, the third installment in the Andrew Z. Thomas series and prequel to Crouch's and Konrath's thriller Stirred...

Somehow, Luther Kite has found them.

Following the events of Desert Places and Locked Doors, Andy Thomas and Violet King are hiding out in the wilds of northern Canada, where Violet has a four-month-old son and a burgeoning romance with Andy. On a cold, rainy night at their cabin in the woods, the promise of an idyllic life that seems just around the corner is shattered when a man from their past, a monster of pure malevolence, returns. What he has in store for them will challenge their understanding of evil and stretch the fibers of their love to the breaking point.

I felt like a SUCKER. More S&M than thriller.

What would have made Break You better?

Rewrite it.

Has Break You turned you off from other books in this genre?

This is book 3 of a trilogy. I am not surprised that it is shorter than the other 2. He ran out of ideas. Too much pain and torture to the point of utter silliness.

Which scene was your favorite?

The End

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Break You?

All of the torture scenes but that would leave nothing

Any additional comments?

It just turned into a silly torture device book. Very disappointing. SPOILER ALERT - Because Andrew cannot get himself to kill the psycho Luther in book 1, hundreds of people ( men, women and children ) are tortured and killed for 7 years before Luther goes after Andrew, his new love and her child. What a surprise???

After all that horror ...

Ending was just too much to tke. The whole series was too tragic for me but I kept going for the satisfaction of knowing, well I won't spoil the ending. I'll stick to Daniel Silva and Michael Connelly.

A serial killer's journey into "absurdity "

I enjoy suspense thrillers and psychological drama, and even horror, sometimes. Blake Crouch is among my favorite authors, but I must say his novels featuring serial killer "Luther Kite" is a bit farfetched. Desert places and Locked doors were okay, until the end. It went a bit off track, into Texas chainsaw massacre territory. I mean a family of psychopathic killers, really?! I read "Break you" only because it was only 2 hours. I don't think I could have endured longer, and I thought maybe, just maybe we could put this "Beyond insane" monster to rest! Sadly, I couldn't even finish a 2 hour story. B-O-R-I-N-G!! In his effort to make the killer more interesting and creative; he only seemed to make him ridiculous. Crouch seems to have taken LC and laid back and luxuriated in his madness to the point of absurdity. As a result I became bored and no longer interested. The acts of the killer were so farfetched that I wonder if the author is not himself a little too enthralled with acts of violence and cruelty. I know this fiction, but for fiction it's a bit much. waste of time.

Poor ending to a fascinating series

Hated the ending to this series! These series was so well written and had me gasping out loud several times. Andrew was a believable character but the ending fell flat and made me mad that I'd spent all this time invested in these books.

All wrapped up!

Fantastic ending to a great story. I loved the way that Crouch finished the book. I am not going to spoil anything, but .... pretty intense. This whole book was intense! Great writing.

don't waste $$ or credit.

Firstly, way to short for the $$$. secondly, just a terrible story. hated this. I couldn't even recognize this as being written by the same author. I wonder if he had a bet as to how fast, and lamely he could write this.

Fantastic ending to the series

Dislikes, nothing. The narrator is fantastic the story is even better. The end however... not expected which made this novella and even better ending to the series. Blake crouch is a fantastic writer.

Story was not bad...

Could have been a lot better. The first 2 hours I kept thinking "how does this make someone snap?" The premise to one of my favorite Jack Daniels book was a let-down. Ending was the savior of the story, but it was like watching 2 hours of someone rowing a boat
