couldn't put this down. suspense is gripping
Great book and the narration was on point. This is one of the best books I've listened to in a year. Karen Slaughter is a wonderful author. I highly recommend this book.
I really enjoyed this story! The storyline kept you interested and the flashbacks flowed easily without confusing the reader. The narration was superb! I definitely recommend this book. Karin Slaughter always delivers a great story.
I definitely prefer the book over the Netflix series. In the book you get an understanding of the main character and her daughter. I found myself empathizing and quietly championing the characters. You could relate with their struggles and triumphs. The movie series portrayed the mother as cold blooded and calculating, which was a real disappointment. I want to remember the characters as they are in the book.
Great book that keeps twisting, & turning all the way through!
many details not needed, however overall good book. Excellent narration …
I love Karin Slaughter as an author because she always write strong, intelligent characters. In that aspect, this book was a huge let down. Andrea was a muttering and dim witted LC, who did nothing but infuriate me the entire novel. Great story line, well written, but horribly weak characters
Lots of suspense, twists & turns - kept your interest beginning to end.
Great story. Goes back and forth in time, so it stays interesting. I read Girl Forgotten first, which is the follow up to this story. If you enjoy this book, definitely read the Girl Forgotten.
This one just didn’t do it for me. More than likely because I found the protagonist irritatingly juvenile and it unfortunately continued throughout the story.
Good twists and turns and surprises
Loved all the twist and turns of this entire story!
Twists turns, energy and excitement. This was not my normal choice of a story but turned out to be one I’m glad I listened to.
The story just seemed to drag on and on. It was too long and the characters self-deprecation was monotonous.
Karin Slaughter never ceases to amaze me with her books. Kathleen Early has the voice that wants you to keep listening to. This book was not what I thought it was going to be about. It went a total different route that I was expecting.
Good book and decent narrator.
I really enjoyed this book and it was brilliantly narrated.
Fantastic. All around. Narrator and writing was so perfect together, narrator even has a similar voice to Bella Heathcote, who plays Andy in the Netflix show! This book has so many events and details back to back, you’ll never get bored. I read the book prior to watching the show, and the book has information and juicy details that the show wasn’t able to portray, which is expected. The small petty, humorous, yet dark moments or quotes from Laura and Andy make this book one of my 3 favorites. The end had me crying and laughing. I recommend watching the show AFTER the book, it’s still very good, but just won’t hit as hard.
I enjoyed it. it kept its pace throughout
Not my favorite Karin Slaughter book but a solid piece of entertainment none the less.
I was hooked right from the initial crime. Really suspenseful and the personalities had a lot of depth. Excellent!
I had a love / hate relationship with this book. It was well-written with well developed characters. I think it could have been improved with some judicious editing- I listened to the unabridged audiobook and felt it was too long by at least 25%. One of the primary characters, Andrea, drove me crazy with her insecurities; I wanted to slap her and scream "Get a grip!" Good story, over the top introspection, a solid 4.
Great book! Kept me on the edge of my seat at times. Good plot
Lots of twists and turns. I found some of it a bit far fetched for my taste, but it was interesting. The narration was great.
Loved the book! Kathleen Early is a great narrator.
Great book couldn’t put it down
Biring, unlikeable characters. Tedious. Narrator was ok.
This book was amazing from narration to plot on the edge of my seat for the entire reading! I would give it 10 stars if I could!
Once again, one of the best books by this author!
