“This is the second book in this series by Ms. Slaughter which I have read. Neither of the books were read in the order of the series. Both books started somewhat tedious, even with a little bit of dread. I am unable to explain the sense of dread. Perhaps it is because most of her characters seem to have some major flaw. it may be moral, it may be mental, but there always seems to be one. Even characters without these flaws seem to have an almost overwhelming, sense of loss. However, somewhere as I read the first couple of chapters, I lose the sense of dread and become engrossed in the book. ”Ron Bailey wrote this review Wednesday, March 2, 2011.

“Better than Undone, but I will not be reading any future books in these series...After Jeffery was killed, the stories started going down hill from there...Plus I can only take so much of Lena...I wanted to kill her myself after reading this one...Plus, Will is a wimp when it comes to his wife Angie, he should have kicked her out years ago and not let her keep coming and going in his life....Will and Sara should have started a relationship in this book and maybe future books would be more appealing.”Cheryl C wrote this review Tuesday, February 8, 2011.

“What captured me from the first in this dramatic crime series is that I actually like the people. Even the hideous ones seem to give their personal best. Sara, Jeffrey, Lena, the side-players and Will (from an entirely different Karin Slaughter series, now wrapped into the fold), have interesting quirks, thoughts or backgrounds that make it a treat to read along.
The series has always involved shockingly grotesque crimes, and is definitely not designed for the squeamish. But "Broken" involves a fairly run-of-the-mill crime: a conspiracy, blackmail, and murders to shut people up. The installment still has drama, but is probably weakest of the collection in terms of delivering a nightmare or two. But that's okay. How many hideous crimes can one town, even a college town, absorb?
This is the tenth (all together, right? Ten?) in the combined series and although one could probably pick up any of the stories and enjoy a satisfying read, it would be best to start from the beginning. Make it a summer project. You'll be hooked from the first and satisfied with this latest contribution.”

“Hmmm., I read this a few days ago and I remember that I liked it and told myself I would check out more books by that author. But even reading the synopsis, I can't remember what the deal was so I'll just say that I liked it. I might revise to "I really liked it" if it comes back to me.”N C wrote this review Sunday, January 16, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
