    Good story line, but...

    But there was so much unnecessary foul language I almost quit listening more than once. I hung in there to the end, very suspenseful story line. But very graphic details and language.

    Pieces of Her

    Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter is almost like two stories in one. There is today and what is currently happening and the past that brought us to this future. Both stories are exciting with lots of edge of your seat moments. Sadly, this is another book that the 5 star system just doesn't do justice too.

    Okay story that doesn't qualify as a novel

    This is an okay story but a bad novel. There's a big difference between a storyteller and a novelist. A storyteller can come up with a decent idea, and depending on the medium, spin a good yarn. By that definition, Karin Slaughter is no novelist. This book reads like a first draft, an essential element of a novel---get the story down as fast as you can, include lots of detail that serve as reminders as you revise the draft, and worry about fleshing it out later. It's the second draft and beyond that turn a story into a novel. If you dislike omniscient point of view as much as I do except in the hands of an expert author, you'll understand why I dislike this book so much. Omniscient is fine for a rough draft, but after that, you need to do the hard work of choosing a different POV or learning how to do omniscient right. To other specifics: 1) Andrea is an annoying, whining protagonist, endlessly wondering about useless matters in the middle of life-and-death situations. 2) The step-by-step action is unnecessary and tedious. We honest to God don't need to know that a character approaches a car, grasps the door handle, opens the door, slides onto the seat, closes the door, finds her keys, finds the right key, inserts it into the ignition, turns the key...and so on and so forth ad infinitum. That's not a literal example but a realistic composite. In one scene, Andrea spends a crazy amount of time thinking about, deciding, undeciding, and thinking some more about how she'll hide a large amount of money. Good grief, we don't need to know her entire thought process. I gave up on the book by Chapter 10, when she runs into "Alabama" and he calls her beautiful about a million times. Her constant questioning about this encounter put me to sleep for at least the sixth time since I started listening. I'm done. I don't care if "they" find and start harming Andrea---or her mother, which is another character who deserved so much more. I don't even care if the Norwegian conference attendees discover that she isn't who she says she is, and that's a pretty big deal. That's how little I care about these characters, and making your readers care about the characters is job one for novelists. I am done.
