This author is so solid. The writing literally pulls you in - I flew through the last 200 pages because I just couldn‘t put it down. My 2nd Slaughter novel - won‘t be my last.

Felt gross all night, so I had to take a sick day today. We all know what that means, hot tea, a good book, and a floofy cat for comfort.

"Sam used the upper-right section of the footage. 'It's not right. The angle doesn't work.'
'What angle?' Ben asked.
'This.' Charlie pointed to the shadow. 'It looks like a spider's leg to me, but Sherlock Holmes over here sees a hound in the Baskerville.'"

This was an excellent book although there should be a trigger warning for the violence that does take place in the book. I found it hard to read mostly because I have 2 daughters of my own. Karin Slaughter definitely delivered as this one was tough to put down. Only complaint was the chapters felt long and I hate having to stop reading mid-chapter.

all_4_kb This was a good one 1y
kchuebner Right?? It got dark in some spots for sure and I can‘t remember the last book that brought me to tears but it was very well written. 1y

Wow. This is such a dark book. It's definitely not "enjoyable". On the other hand, it's such a good story and written so well. I read to relax, to enjoy myself, and to escape from the negativity of the world. So many parts of this book have been very uncomfortable and unpleasant. Gruesome books, horror books, or whatever you want to categorize this book, are not for me. If you enjoy those, though, you'll love this book!

I listened to this on audiobook over the course of a couple years, but I keep going back to it. It is truly an incredible story. Slaughter‘s plots captivate me and her characters feel very real, very human. She has a way with grizzly gore and delivers horrifying situations in such a way that I don‘t find them too over the top. I have a high tolerance for gore and blood though. Just another incredible book by this formidable author. #thriller

“What a rapist takes from a woman is her future. The person she is going to become, who she is supposed to be, is gone. In many ways, it's worse than murder, because he has killed that potential person, eradicated that potential life, yet she still lives and breathes, and has to figure out another way to thrive.”
Karin Slaughter, The Good Daughter

My second foray into audiobooks and WOW, what a ride!! What a messed up catastrophe of a story. A string of horrific events, so much sadness and trauma, but I couldn‘t stop listening. Slaughter once again weaves a complicated web of a mystery that you almost feel guilty for enjoying because the content is so horrifying.

Susanita I prefer “professional” investigators over amateurs, but sometimes a good cozy will hit the spot. I like interesting characters that aren‘t all the typical damaged cynical men of a certain age. A cool setting is nice but not a requirement. 3y

Loved it! 💚

It was dark, gritty and full of suspense. The sibling relationship felt real and it helped develop the main character, Charlie, so much. I love a book with strong female characters, who even though they are flawed, still kick ass.

28 years ago, Charlotte experienced enough trauma for one lifetime when she and her sister Sam were forced into the woods at gunpoint. After being shot and buried alive, Sam makes a miraculous recovery, and Charlotte goes on to become a renowned attorney.

Now, Charlotte is front and center as she witnesses a school shooting, and her sister Sam takes on the case to protect a potentially innocent accused teenage shooter.

This one was suspenseful!

With just over a day to go I finally finished the #TeamSlaughter Buddy Read book.
An excellent book, but quite a big read. Like all Karin Slaughter books gritty in places, and not always an easy read, but superbly written. Loved the court based section.

Wow, this book was rough! I couldn‘t do anything while listening because it was too dark. I balanced it out by doing a puzzle.

I probably wouldn‘t have read or finished this book if it wasn‘t the #buddyread for #TeamSlaughter

It was really dark and I didn‘t like how she retold the worst part multiple times but I understand why she did it

This was my first book by Karin Slaughter. I've never been interested in her books and read this one only for #Scarathlon2020 as the group read for #TeamSlaughter

Well, it was ok. But to much on the drama side for me. To me it felt like Slaughter just needed to add more drama and some more and some. Like me when I'm adding spices to my food, just that I don't like the drama.

While I‘m committed to #TeamSlaughter I couldn‘t commit to Karin Slaughter. I rarely DNF a book, but just not my cup of tea. But hey, this year I‘ve been exploring genres outside my usual reading, including thrillers, fantasy, mysteries and horror. So have moved on to Kate Atkinson‘s One Good Turn for my next #Scarathlon read.

veritysalter If you‘re not a fan of thrillers this was a hardcore one to start with. Hope you enjoy your next read. 📚📚 3y

An hour left of Wicked Autumn on audio
I have The Good Daughter on audio and print, so I‘m hoping to get some audiopuzzling done this week.

#buddyread for #scarathlon #teamslaughter. Great account of how violent crime can tear apart a family and an entire community. This is my first Karin Slaughter but it will definitely not be my last. Unique characters that you care about and an intricate plot that moves at a breakneck pace. Intense scenes of violence and passionate treatment of the characters. And look! She credited #TeamSlaughter in her acknowledgments. 😆

Clwojick A lot of her book are like this. They‘re almost painful to read, but man do they ever pull you in! Pretty Girls is at least 3 times darker and more disturbing than this one, but it‘s well written and one of the most memorable books I‘ve ever read. 3y

Buechersuechtling I was a bit jealous when I read your post this morning. This had two reasons. 1) That you are able to watch films early in the morning. 2) That you really _do_; meaning, that you bring yourself to get up early and do nice things instead of sleeping in. 👏🏼 _Very_often_I intend to do so and then nothing comes out of it. Only in 1% of those cases I really make it to realise my resolution. 3y
Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling Well, I'm an early-bird, getting up when most people go to bed 😄 I love the quiet early hours. But therefore I can't do anything in the evening. I'm just getting tired, sitting in my chair, unable to do anything. Other people are very active during those times, doing the things I do in the morning. 3y
Buechersuechtling @Jari-chan This is so funny – because, you know, I‘m such a nighthawk. I‘m not loving that it‘s dark for so long and getting dusk so early. But I love those quiet night hours when everybody is asleep and I can do my stuff without being bothered. Now and then seeing lights in houses where others are awake, too. Then I like to think, we‘re a sworn community. 😁 3y
Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling Then we might meet each other in the middle 😄 I really can relate to what you're saying - I love being left in peace by everything and everybody. No noices, no disturbances, just silence (and the cats). And yes, watching the few lights in the other houses going on and off is nice and gives a feeling of beloning together 😊 3y
