I honestly have no idea how this author became so famous. Are people really that admiring of her overly graphic and detailed descriptions of gore and violence? I am a self proclaimed lover of true crime and dark stories and movies and I simply could not stomach the unnecessary porn like description of violence against women. This is a running theme in all her stories and is very repugnant to me. Due to her popularity I decided to try this second book. It will certainly be the last one I ever read by this author.

This book is overly simplistic and hollow with no advancements in plot. I'm really trying to get through it but the majority of it is the author droning on and on about how the main character is having memory problems. I feel like the reader is assumed to be stupid and must be pressed upon this point again and again. If she forgets her purse for the 3rd time we get it! Returning for sure.

Hysterical and Grating

As a woman I’m offended by the stereotypes presented in the book. Main character is unsympathetic, more just pathetic. The narrator was terrible and overly dramatic and her portrayal was grating on my nerves. Returned the book.
