Reviews The Good Daughter

  • Emily May
    This is the second thriller I've read lately that opens with a shitstorm of drama. In the best kind of way, of course. But The Good Daughter is, in some ways, much darker than Stillhouse Lake, and in other ways slower and more character-driven. It's not a bad thing. Slaughter more closely resembles my beloved Tana French in style, making her books more about the detectives or, in this case, lawyers than about the actual crime/mystery. It's a clev...

    Full review:Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m a Grade-A, Karin Slaughter junkie. I can’t get enough of her stuff; it’s like crack for nerds who like all the dark things in their reading repertoire. I began devouring her books right around my 18th birthday and have continued to do so for almost 10 years. She’s the only living author that I have continued to read for such an extended period of time; I tell you all this so that you are...

(With extremely, incredibly light spoilers in that I tell you who some of the characters are, but not what happens, especially when the aliens come and impregnate the men ha ha okay I'm just kidding about that, but you've been warned!)With the GOOD DAU...

    *4.5 stars*All hail the queen of crime fiction—Karin Slaughter has done it again. This clever author has penned another compelling and tantalizingly twisted thriller in her signature no-holds-barred approach. Not that I doubted her brilliance for even a second; there’s a reason she’s been one of my very favorites since stepping foot in Grant County more than a decade ago. As readers we all find ourselves hanging on to an author’s every wo...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr...After reading the description and the prequel for this novel, I knew I had to read it soon. This book was INTENSE! It honestly had me feeling ALL THE FEELS. I really did both laugh and cry while reading this novel. "The Good Daughter" had me in its clutches from page one until the very end, and I'm still feeling the after-effects. The book opens in 1989. Samantha Quinn is fif...

    This is not a series! I just found this out today. Also you do not need to read Last Breath which is a novella. I think this was listed as a series just to get you to buy the novella.I think this was a cheap shot. Also very disappointed because I loved this book and was so looking forward to this being a series.This is a stand alone. Did anyone else think this was a series or is it just me?I just loved this book. I love Karin Slaughter and she ha...

    I have officially drank the Karin Slaughter kool-aid. It's not that I had an aversion to reading a book by Karin Slaughter, it's just that I kind of kept putting it off. Boy, what a mistake! This book was OUTSTANDING. It was chilling, explosive, and shocking. Those are just three words that I could use to describe this book. It was also so much more. In all honesty, I don't feel there is much more that I can add to the overwhelming amount of posi...
  • Paromjit
    This is a superb, dark and brutal novel from the talented Karin Slaughter set in Pikeville, North Georgia. Two tragic set of events occur 28 years apart and their catastrophic repercussions on a family and their community are observed. Rusty is a notoriously able lawyer who believes that justice should be for everybody, such as defending innocent black people, and others deemed beyond the pale, like rapists. This has made Rusty a host of enemies,...

    Whew! That was a lot to take in.Deeply disturbing intense read filled with drama, suspense, and unspeakable trauma. The Good Daughter is not for the faint hearted. Teenage sisters Sam and Charlie experience a traumatic and torturous event. What happens to them scars them both literally and figuratively for life. Nearly 30 years later, the past they worked so hard to bury comes back to haunt them as they deal with the fall out of a school shootin...
