characters Pieces of Her Read ☆ Pieces of Her 104 Karin Slaughter ´ 4 Download The #1 internationally bestselling author returns with a new novel in the vein of the New York Times bestsellers Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter a story even electrifying provocative and suspenseful than anything she’s written beforeWhat if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother Laura She’s knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Gullaway Island. Karin Slaughter has been a relatively recent discovery for me I really enjoyed her dark gritty The Good Daughter especially the way she slowly paints in the relationship and backstory between the two female protagonists It was a nasty powerful readPieces of Her is another slow paced book about two women this time a mother and her daughter but I found the slowness here extremely dull And the plot seemed a little ludicrous honestly though also tamer than expected Rather than a gritty thriller that concentrated on the family dynamics Slaughter seems to do best we got a strange terrorist backstory that introduced a number of forgettable charactersThe beginning sees Andy and her mother Laura going to lunch for Andy s 31st birthday Laura has recently come out of intense rounds of chemotherapy to treat her breast cancer while unambitious Andy is struggling to figure out her life plan after a series of failures When a shooter opens fire in the cafe Laura tells him to shoot her next He doesn t and instead Laura uickly and coldly kills him Caught on camera delivering the killing blow without emotion first the police and then Andy start to ask uestions about Laura s past and who she really is After that everything spirals out of control and gets bigger and bigger Andy makes a number of discoveries that offer up uestions than answers Who is Laura What is she hiding Is someone after themThe story leaps between the present and thirty years ago revealing a past of murder scheming and secret identities Unfortunately though I just don t think Pieces of Her contained any of the emotion or urgency I would have expected from this author The reveals are anticlimactic the plot boring and convoluted and none of the characters made much of an impression on me To be honest I think that s what it really comes down to the story was unconvincing because my detachment from the characters kept me at a distance Andy s naivete at 31 years old is frustrating and uite annoying at times and I felt like a lot of character development was sacrificed for the sake of throwing in the detailed terrorist backstory I ll still read Slaughter s future books but this one was definitely miss than hitBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
