Book Description

It could have been just any night, and they could have just been any two brothers--but it wasn't, and they weren't. The scene is an Atlanta bar. The music is loud and the dance floor is packed. The good-looking brother picks up a girl. But when dark deeds ensue out in the parking lot, what happens next can only be described in two words: vintage Slaughter. From the opening scene to the last line, Thorn in My Side is as wicked as it is entertaining--an unforgettable piece of writing from one of the most beloved storytellers working today.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of money! 5 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read and loved many Karin Slaughter books but this is a complete waste of money. The story is complete rubbish and in only 50% of what you buy. The rest is a "preview" ie. the first chapter of her next book. I have no desire to pay twice for the same story and feel that this is a complete con. Both Ms Slaughter and Amazon should be ashamed!

1.0 out of 5 stars dont bother 11 Sept. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I love reading books by Karin Slaughter and this was a massive let down, this was a waste of money and I wouldn't recommend buying it. Takes a whole new meaning to short story as it was read in about 15 minutes.

Having read all of the previous Karin Slaughter books and really enjoyed them but this was a little odd to say the least. Would not recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to it, literally! 14 Sept. 2011
By Saffie
Format:Kindle Edition
This is even shorter than I thought it was going to be as nearly half of it is the first chapter from her novel Fallen, which is definitely good but I've already read it. THORN IN MY SIDE has merit in that the concept and storyline itself are extreme and thought provoking, the consciousness of one conjoined twin's of another's evil, but it is crudely executed and comes to a clumsy conclusion.

The main sticking point for me is the lack of content for the price. Surely this could have been given away as an introduction to what it is really selling or added as a bonus chapter to her next book rather than the other way around?

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 12 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Waste of time and money. Not a complete book. Only a taster but that was not clear butler after the download. Won't rely in authors any more. Will check all the reviews first. Oh well, you learn the hard way.

Not recommend :-(
