Abortläkarens dotter av Elisabeth Hyde (2006)

  1. 00
    Songs for the Missing av Stewart O'Nan (verenka)
    verenka: Both books deal with a family falling apart because of the violent death of one member.
  2. 00
    The Doctor's Wife av Elizabeth Brundage (SugarCreekRanch)
    SugarCreekRanch: These two books have similar themes. Abortionist's Daughter is a lighter, quicker read. Doctor's Wife is darker and more thought-provoking. Both excellent stories.

A fast and decent read, but entirely too predictable. I wanted more about how the abortion doctor had to deal with the rest of the community and less about her rebellious daughter. I also hated the cliche love story that got thrown in at the end. But it was a quick diversion and not a terrible read. ( )

This is a thriller/ crime novel that follows a murder investigation of an abortionist Dr. Diana. A series of unfortunate events unwrap and that only gets more suspects into the murder investigation. We are then given a detailed look at Diana's life at the very end of the book and the mystery unlocks itself. It is a pretty good book with a neat advance of events. Nothing seemed rushed up or slow. It was at a moderate speed. The book seemed a little boring and lost in the middle somewhere, but it started off well and the ending tied everything together. All the loose strings were put together really well. The thing I liked the most about the book is the balance of all the elements throughout it. The characterization, balance of past and present in the story, were the things best done throughout the story by Elisabeth Hyde. ( )

It was a bit...fluffy. The writing was nothing special, there were no great insights, no real imagery, & despite the perhaps controversial title there was no real gritty discussion. It was just a simple who-dunnit, a quick read, enough to entertain but nothing more. And for the record, I knew who-dunnit from about the first chapter. ( )

This book was just ok. Its a murder mystery and I figured out who the murderer was pretty early on. It was a quick read and I would recommend it to Jodi Picoult fans. I was a bit disappointed in the ending. ( )

Fairly early on I went - this character is going to be the killer.
I didn't buy Hank and Megan's relationship. I didn't get what he saw in her. He is 7 years older than him. He is a grown man with a career and a house. She comes across as a scared confused little girl. She is legally an adult - barely, but she is still a kid. Why is he so fascinated by her? He sees her and what she is so beautiful he can't get her our of his head? He is acting like an idiot.
When Diana talks about by preforming the abortion she is just pushing the reset button it made me think of the anti drinking and driving commercial that say life doesn't have a rewind button. ( )
