Book Review: Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter


Pretty Girls

First comes love, then comes marriage. You think you know the person you vow to spend the rest of your life with – but are you really just seeing an image of the person you WANT to see?

Claire’s husband Paul is murdered in front of her. As she attempts to grieve this loss, she is confronted with many truths she chose to ignore throughout her marriage. She is forced to look at her own dysfunctional family and tragic unsolved kidnapping of her older sister.

The book is long but the read is short. I thought it would take me a few months to finish the 416 pages, but I flew through it. It’s not the best story I’ve ever read, and its not the best written, but its good. better than most.

The characters are believable and the story has no noticeable holes. The characters are flawed but triumphant in using the flaws to their advantage.

I give this book a 3/5.

We read to learn, to feel, to laugh, to understand others. We write to teach, express, communicate, to inspire others. I created Invisible Ink as an outlet of sorts, an area where I can organize the chaos; a place where hopefully I can be true to myself, and my readers. Writing is personal, it takes a brave and dedicated soul to formulate a piece and then share it with the world. That being said, I get just as much out of reading other's work as I do sharing mine ( I am always open to manuscript review swaps, just send me a message). Words read off a page evoke emotions. When taken out of context, or through an out of focus lens - anyone can mold the words, shifting their meaning to fit their agenda or distorted outlook. Staying true to form and myself, I won't censor my content, but I will censor my audience. Whatever lens you happen to be reading this through - I hope you enjoy!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
