Intense and gripping read! I enjoyed the protagonist and thought Slaughter did a great job showing how a quiet personality can possess strength, and the fear felt by people who have been manipulated by a powerful con artist. Definitely not…Read moreRead more of this comment

Overall, I really liked the book because of its interesting plot and story line. It's quite long so it took a while to read but it wasn't repetitive or dragging on like many other books. Something interesting was always happening and it…Read moreRead more of this comment

I absolutely loved this book. It got me right off the bat and I didn't want to put it down to go to sleep at night. Really enjoyed it, it was my first book by this author recommended to me by my sister in law but it won't be the last.

I normally enjoy Slaughters work, but this book? I have to agree with the other comments. I usually give a book the 99 page test and if I've not "gotten into" it, then it probably won't happen and I'm done. But for whatever reason, I…Read moreRead more of this comment

I recently discovered Karin Slaughter and was excited to find two of her books available at the library. Unfortunately, this one wasn't my cup of tea.
The story goes back and forth between the 1980's and 2018 and, in my opinion, the…Read moreRead more of this comment

RATING: 3.5 STARS

The novel started out with a Slaughter bang, but as the novel unfolded I fund myself disappointed. This one reminded me of The Good Daughter (the other…Read moreRead more of this comment

Slow-paced doesn't begin to describe the slog to get through 'Pieces of Her'.
While I am a huge fan of Karen Slaughter and have read her every book with the exception of Cop Town, which I attempted to read, this book was just plain…Read moreRead more of this comment

I have been a faithful reader of all things Slaughter. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed, and to the point that I am unsure if I will pick up any future work. Due to the fact that I have enjoyed this author's works in…Read moreRead more of this comment

Infectious read - but the writing, dialogue, editing fell apart about 1/3 way through. It was sort of like eating a whole bag of candy - terrific at the beginning but by the end you’re barely enjoying it even though you can’t stop. Great…Read moreRead more of this comment

This was my first read of a Karin Slaughter novel. OMG! What an outstanding writer and fascinating story. It was so good that I did some late-into-the-morning reading -- a compliment to the author, for sure.

This is very good. But I cringed a little at the description of the radical '80s group. No one gets those radical groups right. I was there, in the '70s.
But otherwise it was a great plot, with good writing.
I love all Karin Slaughter novels and this one is no exception! Different than her usual novels this one had great characters in the mother Laura, whos back storey is told in flashbacks, and her daughter Andy, who has no idea who her…Read moreRead more of this comment

If you think this book is about Andy and not her mother Laura, you're missing the boat. If PIECES OF HER were about Andy, we'd all be disappointed: she's one of the most forgettable, pathetic characters Slaughter has ever given us. But…Read moreRead more of this comment

Karin Slaughter can write stories with more twists and turns than anyone. PIECES OF HER is no exception. The story line is interesting. The characters are a a bunch of misfits, which makes things interesting. Slaughter's stories often…Read moreRead more of this comment

Slaughter is one of my favorite authors, but this book was extremely disappointing. One of the main characters, the daughter, is so annoying I couldn't continue past page 160. I wanted to smack her, I was so irritated. The character is…Read moreRead more of this comment

Disappointed in this one, although I've loved Slaughter's books for over a decade. I couldn't like the characters, the story line only mildly interested me, and about 200 pages in I realized I was skimming pages instead of reading them. …Read moreRead more of this comment

I love this author and was happy to see her expand on her storytelling in that this book didn't have cops at the forefront and it really focused on the characters and the backstory involved. It may not be for the average Karin Slaughter…Read moreRead more of this comment
