Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter) – Life of this city girl

Slaughter tells it like it is, highlighting how bad people really are. I very much enjoyed Kisscut insofar as not being able to put it down until I was done. But, if you like a tale told through gifs, check out part two! As someone who has buried tortured kittens and puppies, I cannot agree.

Not too long after, Sara who besides being a pediatrician is also the town’s coroner makes a revolting finding. The subject mat Note: This is a realistic novel about a real problem. While the subject matter is tough, its honest and realistic presentment was compelling.

However, she is all about shock value. Her biopsy on Jenny reveals horrific slakghter, and Sara and Jeffrey need to find out what happened to Jenny and why she so desperately wanted to kill Mark Patterson.

Slaugher of the time I was either sorry or irritated by her and I still don’t like her animosity towards Sara. My emotions were all over the place, especially where Lena is concerned. But when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton – the town’s paediatrician and medical examiner – finds herself entangled in a horrific tragedy.


She is a great anchor for this author’s books though. Equally tough, too, were the emotional hurdles slaughyer the recurring cast had to tackle. If you’re of a nervous disposition then steer away!

Book Review: Kisscut (Karin Slaughter)

A big, nasty net of child pornography and molestation is found in Grant County, and it seems every single person is guilty. She chose her villians wisely — people you would never expect, which makes it more insidious than if it were the obvious.

For the past three-and-a-half hours, Sara had tried to reassemble the baby from the parts Jenny Weaver had left in the bathroom and in the red book bag they found in the trash by the video game room. I had to stay home from work the next day. On the other hand, I’m finding I don’t care for some of her main characters I don’t think it’s just me – she has written them as extremely unsympathetic kissdut the way she tells her stories is beginning to rub me wrong.

The book was OK and a short slaugher.

Then I was like: I cannot recommend it as slaughtr read for everyone, but if the subject of sexual abuse of children interests you and somewhat graphic, but realistic, descriptions do not send you screaming from the room in denial or horror, then this is a great book to read for both emotional and social depictions of ‘what happens’.

Lena and Jeffrey leave without any clear answers. Sara heads into the bathroom and makes a gruesome discovery. I don’t get them. This was a very difficult book to work through, I wholeheartedly agree! No trivia or quizzes yet. My father often acted as if books were poisonous to touch, but he knew kaarin school required books to come home with schoolchildren, and parents could get in serious kisdcut if they didn’t send their kids to school, so books were the one thing he allowed me to keep, thinking them all from school.

There was a scene where he was just plain mean. Even though this is a reread for me, I found myself totally embroiled in the plot and the fates of the characters. I really enjoyed it but it made me sick to my stomach. He had widened his repertoire of punishments by then, so I got more than a kicking. At the same time, Jeffrey is put into the worst position ever and ends up doing the unthinkable. Jun 06, Brenda rated it liked it Shelves: Sara is out on a date with her ex-husband, Jeffrey Tolliver.

The brilliance of this book is that the rural normalcy of small town USA is a perfect backdrop in which to set this thriller.


This is where the story becomes impossible to leave. I still don’t like the characters but this time the story dragged me in and I raced through the book. Second in the Grant County series, Kisscut kept me up over my weekend until I finished it, that is typical Karen Slaughter. But Kisscut is compelling reading. The author created such a feeling of menace and evil in the town that had me on the edge of my seat.

He wants her to talk to a Pastor in their church, Dave Fine, to get some counselling but she constantly finds excuses to not go. Faith believed her sister connived, lied and deceived her way through life, never taking responsibility.

As she got closer to them, he could see that her glasses were crooked on her face.
