    She had always believed vehemently, with great conviction that the only way to change the world was to destroy it If you didn t know before, you certainly will now I m a Karin Slaughter junkie with a capital J and a slaughtersquad chick a dee with the cat ears to prove it wink It was over a decade ago that I picked up my first Grant County novel and found myself instantly enad with Slaughter s brand of dark My love for the blood and guts splattering her crime lines, enmeshed with the thriving emotionality driving the multi faceted beings present on the page, have landed me in perpetual countdown mode tracking the days from one Slaughter fix to my next.A slight departure from her previous work, Pieces of Her is an exploration of the mother daughter relationship I think so often we only see our mothers as just that We don t acknowledge who they were before taking on that pivotal role or even seek it out we compartmentalize them in a way To Andy, her mother Laura has always been the confident, reliable, even keeled woman who s happy living life in a small beach side town After 31 years, what would ever make her think anything different Karin Slaughter, who shockingly enough could probably find work as a standup comedian, if this whole writing thing hadn t of panned out, I finally had the chance to meet her and she was HILARIOUS always delivers an edgy op...

    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 read.Pieces 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 characters.The 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 quickly and coldly kills him Caught on camera delivering the killing blow without emotion, first the police, and then Andy, start to ask questions 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 questions than answers Who is Laura What is she hiding Is someone after th...

    3.5 StarsHow well do you know someone Andrea Cooper thought she knew her Mother, Laura Her mother is a speech therapist who is a pillar of the community She is liked and known by most people in their town But one day at lunch, their whole lives are turned upside down In the face of danger, Laura jumps into action and Andrea and the rest of the world gets to see another side of her Mother Just who is this woman Certainly not the woman that Andrea has known her entire life From that moment on, Andrea learns that there is to her Mother than meets the eye Mainly who she is and the truth about her past I can t say much without giving away any spoilers I will say this is the first Karin Slaughter book that I did not devour It was slow going for me initially At first I thought Oh no I m not really digging this but then it got better Although, it did get better, I found this book to be not quite as enjoyable as her other books Having said that, this is still an enjoyable book I just found this lacked the edge of your seat, pulse pounding, I can t put this book down feel that I experienced from her other books I found this to be a little bit of a departure from her other books This story is told in alternating timelines with the chapter headings clearly labeled so you know what time and what character you are reading about The last third of the book was my favorite Things really picked up and began to make sense which made the ...

    Karin Slaughter gives us a thriller that explores the role of the mother and the mother daughter relationship Andrea Andy Cooper is an unambitious woman who has largely gone through the motions of living She never completed college and she has barely been engaged in any personal relationships Unhappy in New York, she returned home to nurse her mother, Laura, through the worst of her breast cancer treatment She has no impetus to create an independent life for herself, and is secure in the knowledge that she knows Laura inside out, a pillar of the community, an ordinary woman and everyday mom Whilst in a diner, a young shooter, Jonah Helsinger, blasts away a mother and daughter, lining up a frozen and immobile Andy as his next target when Laura steps in front of her, telling him to kill her instead What follows next is captured on mobile video footage that goes viral nationwide, showing a composed Laura killing Helsinger with his knife whilst suffering serious injuries herself Andy is shell shocked at this picture of her mother as a ninja, with the media referring to Laura as a killing machine Who is this woman masquerading as her mother With unexpected and horrifying events occurring that hint at Laura s clandestine past, they bring a whole heap of danger in the present, as a disorientated A...

    Explosive, Hair raising, and Fast Paced Karin Slaughter is a master at suspense.Be prepared to get goosebumps..I was first introduced to Karin Slaughter when I read her grizzly, suspense novel, The Good Daughter I was floored Instantly, I became a die hard Slaughter fan You can find my review of The Good Daughter here.This is my second read by her, and this one was even better It was shocking It was thrilling It was just of everything in a terrifyingly good way.Andrea is a devoted daughter to Laura, her mother When Laura received a diagnosis of breast cancer, Andrea was there to support her every step of the way Eating together in a diner, a gunman comes in Andrea is terrified, but Laura. isn t. She reacts in a calm, almost placid way Laura effortlessly kills the gunman in a militaristic fashion, that suggests Andrea knows absolutely nothing about her mother Besides, how well do you really know anyone This book had me plowing through the pages I couldn t eat, sleep, or drink without wanting to return to my reading cocoon This novel satiated me in a way that few can Not only was Pieces of Her filled with gripping suspense, but it also brought up a lot of discussion worthy topics for book club Karin Slaughter expertly delves into the minds of her characters...

    It seemed like any other day Andy was having lunch at the mall with her mother, Laura, celebrating Andy s 31st birthday They were briefly interrupted when the relative of a former patient of Laura s stopped by with her daughter to thank Laura for all of her help Then, without warning, gunfire erupted, and the woman and her daughter were shot to death.As the gunman approached Andy, screaming at her to do her job, Laura leapt into action Andy watched her mother move to protect her, disarm the gunman, and then finish him off, coldly, as if she were simply a killing machine She knows she is in shock from the trauma of the events, but Andy cannot believe what she saw with her own eyes Could her mother really have done what she saw her do None of it made sense Her mother was a fifty five year old speech therapist She played bridge, for chrissakes She didn t kill people and smoke cigarettes and rail against the pigs In the aftermath of the incident and another encounter which endangers her life, Laura sends Andy away, telling h...

    This was not at all what I expected Instead of the usual clever, multilayered plot with deftly drawn characters, there s this overdone, disconnected, extremely unlikely tale that s like an airport thriller than her usual works The main character is tiresome in the extreme and while her mother is much interesting, there wasn t enough to either to elicit any real emotion And the thing with Mike What the hell was that even about It s not just that ...
