This book, like many of Karin Slaughter's books starts with a violent scene, but it is a little bit slow to warm up.
After about three chapters though, the usual fast pace of Karin's books takes over, keeping you guessing and suspenseful about what will happen next. Some good twists in the plot and a surprising ending.

Thrilling and unexpected

This book had me intrigued from the start. The direction of the narrative was completely unpredictable and had me guessing all the way to the end. It started with a violent, action packed incident from the first scene, and didn't relent for the whole book.
I thoroughly enjoyed every second and have downloaded the whole Karin Slaughter back catalogue now.

This book was suspenseful from the start to the end. It was completely unpredictable and the character development was intriguing. I highly recommend.

The first character Lola doesn’t speak in full sentences which is intensely irritating initially. However she is only one of three characters in the book, and the annoying grammar is worth persevering with because this book is funny and clever. It had me laughing out loud and also sighing with sadness. There were a few unexpected plot twists and plenty of interesting characters.

I like the way Liane Moriarty creates imperfect but likeable characters. This was a great story with some unexpected surprises. Caroline Lee narrates well and I love the Aussie perspective.

Fantastic story from start to finish

What a great book! The perspective of the characters was a perfect way to give the story momentum and keep you guessing.
The internal dialogue of the victims of family violence and sexual assault was the perfect mix of minimisation and anger.
The Aussie narrator brought this book to life.
Loved it!

Powerful. Raw. Honest.

Brene is the champion for authentic living. This book is a series of narratives, where she talks about the research and science of vulnerability, and shares moments of her life to give the theory context.
She doesn't lecture, she shares her experiences including her failures. This is the best book I have ever read about being a better human. I've listened twice already on audible and I'm ready to listen again.
