Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 2/15/2014

    " I finished the book because I wanted to know who did it, but I can't recommend it. I'll stick with her Sookie Stackhouse books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyn | 2/13/2014

    " Very average, "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/17/2013

    " My least favorite book in the Harris catalog, but I chalk it up to being on of her earlier books. I tend to enjoy her series where characters can grow over a number of books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 12/9/2013

    " another good read, strong female character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 12/8/2013

    " So this mystery is nearly as old as I am, copyrighted 1985. I'd almost never have known because it's not really dated at all. It's a really good mystery and in the end the crazed rapist murderer was totally not who I thought it was! yikes. It's a fast read too, a few hours tops. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 12/1/2013

    " A good premise that didn't really rise above average for me. I felt like I was more told how to feel about characters and how they behaved rather than the emotions arising from good characterisation and world building but the story zipped along and it passed a couple of hours pleasantly enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 11/13/2013

    " I had a really hard time with the focus of the book being rape. I had to put it down a few times, though I did finish and was fine with the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Livia Komosa | 10/29/2013

    " not bad for a quickie read. Not as good as the Vamp series, but ok "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharlane | 10/14/2013

    " Not to Charlaine Harris's usual standard. But still enjoyable. Let's face it I would read anything she has written. She is so good I would be interested in reading her shopping list! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina | 9/12/2013

    " One of her early novels. Takes a while to get into the story and it's a little rough around the edges. Doesn't flow as smoothly as her later novels. Didn't care for the character so much--not very interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 8/6/2013

    " I really enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse and Shakespeare series by the same author. Didn't really care for this stand alone book though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekkila | 8/4/2013

    " Much more violent than I expected, I ended up reading the beginning and the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darcy | 7/27/2013

    " Reading this novel is almost exactly the same as watching a dyed-in-the-wool Lifetime Movie. But it's a brisk, mindless beach read, in a good kind of way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 7/26/2013

    " I didn't get into this book until after the rape. Some interesting thoughts about how women handle it and how people react to it. Not one of her best books. An earlier book, I think. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carla Latham | 4/19/2013

    " I love most of Ms. Harris' books. Unfortunately, this book wasn't up to her usual standards. I didn't really like the main character and so I wasn't vested in what happened to her...:( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deena | 6/5/2012

    " I figured it out way before the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Scruggs | 5/27/2012

    " As books about rape go, not bad! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/10/2012

    " Violence in a small southern town. The victims come together, drawing strength and encouragement from each other as they decide to fight back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 rebecca j | 11/19/2011

    " Good story, but stirred up leftover depressions from my own time of "rage"! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 11/10/2011

    " Wow. This has turned into one of those audios that make you take an extra trip around the block just to keep listening! Emotional and gripping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 11/1/2011

    " Good book for those who like crime/mystery novels. Was written in the 80s, but didn't seem that old or outdated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yvette | 10/9/2011

    " Rape is generally dealt with in a serious, depressing manner, but Harris writes a light mystery novel that is engaging while exploring the serious consequences of rape on different individuals. It's a very insightful book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micah | 7/4/2011

    " since this is about a serial rapist it wasn't my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsey | 6/21/2011

    " Entertaining and suspenseful. It kept my attention throughout the entire story. I think the author also did a good job of capturing the thoughts and feelings of the victim. It made you identify with them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad | 5/11/2011

    " Was an amazing sophomore book by a very talented writer that keeps you guessing until the end. THe final revelation is not seen or fortold. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brynn | 4/16/2011

    " A quick read with some intrigue. However I didn't feel any real bond to the characters and I felt the dialogue was a bit unnatural. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamela | 4/11/2011

    " I listed this under HORROR for the obvious reason that being raped is just that.... a horror. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Micaela | 3/22/2011

    " This is one of her first books, and it was pretty good. I thought I had the killer all figured out, but I didn't! I really like that main character, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deena | 3/21/2011

    " I figured it out way before the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 3/20/2011

    " I really enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse and Shakespeare series by the same author. Didn't really care for this stand alone book though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicole | 3/20/2011

    " I love a good book about vengence, this was not one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 3/1/2011

    " This book was pretty intense, just based on the subject matter. It was a good little mystery though. It kind of reminded me of the Aurora books. I thought it was a great read and it was just under 200 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 2/7/2011

    " The book was very slow in the beginning. As soon as something actually started to happen, it was the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fran | 2/6/2011

    " A good story. One of Harris' better works. Not a book for the faint-hearted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosanna | 1/19/2011

    " This is a standalone novel by a wonderful author. It's a mystery, dealing with rape in the South and how women can keep going afterwords. Harris does an excellent job of addressing how Southern ideals effect perspective towards the victim in such a situation. "
