Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter Book Summary

Now on Netflix! Starring Toni Collette and Bella Heathcote!

Mother. Hero. Liar. Killer. How can you tell when all you have is...


What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all . . . ?

Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we?

But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she’s been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she’s been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.

The police want answers and Laura’s innocence is on the line, but she won’t speak to anyone, including her own daughter. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumb trail of her mother’s past. And if she can’t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them. . . .

Pieces of Her (Karin Slaughter) Book Reviews

A total mind benderMy gosh, what a ride. This book kept me up. I had to read it to the end. This is truly Karin Slaughter’s best yet, I think. I like them all but this one had me going until the end. Wow! A must read..Score: 5/5

Not one of my favoritesI have devoured all of Karin Slaughter’s books, but must say that “Pieces of Her” is the least recommended of all of them. Too repetitive, jumps around too much, and not much character development . . in my opinion. Extremely tiresome plot. I do believe that if the book had stuck to the original timeline and character development, the reader interest would have risen dramatically. Don’t think the Netflix series will be worth watching..Score: 1/5

Excellent readAs always, Slaughter pulls us into a world and surrounds us with characters we think of long after the pages end..Score: 5/5

GoodIt was good.Score: 4/5

I am now a Slaughter fanThis was my first Slaughter novel and I absolutely LOVED it. I read THE GOOD DAUGHTER right after and am now addicted to her work!! Highly recommend..Score: 5/5

Great book!It took me a little bit to get into this book, but once I did, I was hooked!.Score: 5/5

A Must ReadI loved the twists and turns! So many unexpected twists and I just loved it!!!.Score: 5/5

Can not recommendIntriguing idea & beginning that falls apart & gets really frustrating. Unbelievable in many areas especially neither parent reaching out to Andrea. I wanted to finish, the story hoping it would get back on track. It did not..Score: 2/5

Loved this!Thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was intriguing with twists and turns, and a great story! It was great to read the book before watching the series on Netflix. It made me enjoy it that much more!.Score: 4/5

Annoying CharactersFrustrating characters, mainly Andrea . I’ve never read a book with so many unfinished sentences. The basic premise of the book was good and could’ve been a really interesting and fascinating read but the characters never quite grew with the story..Score: 3/5

BoringThis book is terrible. I was really hard to follow the story, has no twists, and is very boring!.Score: 1/5

Good read but too longThe plot and prose are intriguing and good respectively. However the pace suffers from too much repetition. This is too bad since the novel’s start is so stunning and fast-paced. The “push-pull” of the protagonist’s relationship between her and her deranged boyfriend is repetitive and the novel suffers accordingly. I do feel however it will make a great series on Netflix..Score: 4/5

B/s not about the book but the purchasing system.I ordered this book when it was 2.99 and it never went to my library during Xmas time this is ridiculous not the first time this has happened..Score: 1/5

Great readThis was a great book! I couldn’t put it down!.Score: 5/5

Fast paced rivetingI did enjoy this book! Would recommend. I would have given it 5 stars, but I had some problems with a few of the characters. Had trouble fully engaging with a main character. That being said, no one can spin a story like Ms. Slaughter! No one can do “broken” and marginalized like the author either..Score: 4/5

Another masterful novel from one of the greatsKarin Slaughter is a master of her craft and PIECES OF HER proves she’s at the top of her game. This is an absolute standout from one of my all time favorite writers. The twists are so unexpected and utterly satisfying. Be sure to set aside a day to read this one, you won’t want to put it down!!.Score: 5/5

So so goodCan’t wait to read more books by Karin. Really well done for a past and a present. Looking forward to the Netflix series..Score: 5/5

Pieces of HerI have loved all of her books but this one. It was boring and didn’t really seem to flow well. All of the characters were very flat and uninteresting. I wish I could return it for a refund. Definitely not her best..Score: 1/5

Seriously?“Not that Andy wasn’t a feminist, but she didn’t want to be the kind of feminist men hated.” GIRL BYE. I can read crappy, poorly thought out, predictable mystery novels without pandering to male approval..Score: 1/5

Pieces of herI honestly don’t know how she does it but Karin Slaughter has outdone herself again. Character development, plot lines and a really good story! My only criticism is I wish she wrote faster! I read in a week what it takes her a year to research and write..Score: 5/5

Confusing and forgetableI love Karin Slaughter, but not this book. Just wanted it to be over to see if it actually was a good story. Painful read and there was nothing likable about main character, no connection..Score: 1/5

ConfusingI’m sorry I paid full price for this book. The first half or more was very confusing. It skipped back and forth in time (which I’m really not a fan of) plus there were 2 Laura’s, 2 Andy’s and trying to figure out who was who...? This is definitely not my favorite by this author. It’s the first time I’ve been disappointed in anything I’ve read by her. I doubt I’ll buy another stand alone book by her..Score: 2/5

FrustratingOverall the plot was intriguing as well as the book divisions to keep the reader engaged. Character development and dialogue, especially Andrea was so frustrating. I literally said out loud “spit it out already.” I ended up finishing it but it took me awhile. There’s a lot to keep you turning the page but then there’s a lot just to leave it on the night stand..Score: 3/5
