I like Karin Slaughter and this is her best yet. Although long it is attention grabbing and I just couldn't stop listening to it until the end. Often the twists and turns in novels are telegraphed but not here. The story and tension slowly builds and allows the listener to really start to experience emotions concerning the different characters. Excellent book.

Got tricked by the good reviews. Not only is this poorly written and formulaic, it needlessly dwells on torture porn style details. Don't understand how it's so popular or well received.

Yes, chapters 28 and 29!!! I have listened/read other books by Karin, but this book by far is the best!!!

If you could sum up Pretty Girls in three words, what would they be?
Pretty Girls is the thriller version of the 2014 books of the year--the ones that slowly unravel the complexities of individuals. so slowly that it drains the reader .The difference with Pretty Girls is that there is NO fluff, no psychological babble--EVERY word written has significance and is gripping. Pretty Girls is about 3 sisters, one murdered long ago, and their parents vert different way of dealing with the pain. The 2 living sisters are estranged and living very different lives, but come together in a can't put down story where EVERYTHING is linked.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Pretty Girls?
It's all memorable. Please stop reading this review and buy the book. If you love psychological thrillers, this book is for you. Karin Slaughter can be a gory writer, but this book is not like that, although it is graphic in nature.
Which character – as performed by Jennifer Woodward and Robert G Slade – was your favorite?
The narrators did an amazing job of voicing the characters. I can't put a finger on a favorite character. I would have to say Lydia, the tough and resilient sister. I loved her most because I loved her boyfriend.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Extreme reaction--LOVED this book. It's in my top 10 of 1000's. I read everything of Karin Slaughter. She's in my top 5 of favorite authors.
Any additional comments?
