    1. This one troubled me for a bit, and I couldn t quite put my finger on why I thought it dragged I enjoyed most, but it did seem to linger for a bit too long, I wasn t entranced as much as I normally am Though come the finale, I was very happy to rate this four stars.Lisa Gardner is an author I always enjoy, she s a great thriller story teller, and honestly is a reliable go to source for an entertaining read As always, my hesitance may simply be attributable to my reading environment and the fact [...]

    2. This one seemed to drag a bit in the beginning but I ended up sitting at the edge of my seat, dying to find out what was going to happen that s what Jillian Hayes, Carol Rosen, and Meg Pesaturo call it They won t consider themselves victims They are survivors They helped lead the investigation that caught the man who changed their lives forever Now they are the prime suspects in his murder.I liked Griffin He had tragedy in his past and was trying to overcome it Was hoping for a bit romance but [...]

    5. You d think I would ve learned my lesson I decided to give this writer a shot because, hey, so many stars, both here and on That s got to mean something, right No.This is a police procedural written by someone who has only the vaguest idea about many, many things related to forensics and police work I am no expert but I read a lot and I like to kid myself I learn stuff Very little of this novel seemed credible Why would cops go to bars to interview patrons early in the morning, for example At 9 [...]

    6. 3.5 5 starsThe Survivor s Club is a standalone detective mystery thriller.Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors I have read all of her books I devour them immediately upon release I absolutely love both her D.D Warren and FBI Profiler series I realized that I had never read this standalone And I was in the mood for a good detective mystery book.I think one problem with reading this book now is that this was one of her first books And she has gotten to be a better experienced writer.This bo [...]

    7. Effective but gruesome suspense novel, a Silence of the Lambs meets Law Abiding Citizen Not for the faint of heart In fact, this is the book to read if you are taking a self defense course or thinking of taking one It will definitely spur you onOT Suspect of several vicious rapes, one ending in death, is about to go to trial with irrefutable DNA evidence He s gunned down at the courthouse steps, and his sniper is killed in a car bomb The story spreads out and involves the survivor s club of his [...]

    8. I call Lisa Gardner the QUEEN OF CREEP All of the novels I read by her including a few D.D Warren books seem to have a well developed sense of creepitude Creepy, sleazy, smarmy and justI dunno foul Child in peril We got it Screwed up adults because as children they were in peril We got it The Survivors Club fits into this genre nicely I mean the bad guy molested and murdered 10 children and buried them in his basement See what I mean And yet, here I am a lover of her CREEPINESS Her female charac [...]

    9. I have read several books from this author and I have to say that this was disappointing This book was slow to start and at times difficult to follow The concept of the book is clever but was not well executed Please, consider reading her other books, don t let this turn you off because you will be missing out.

    10. The funny thing is I can t figure out exactly why I didnt love this book It had all the lements right Characters that interested me, plot twists that were surprising at times Well paced yet it didnt work well for me Maybe it is because it seemed implausable to me But that shouldnt be it I enjoy that many times I will just chalk it up as I can see why others really like it and I LIKED it but not as much as I thought I should have

    11. I really enjoyed this one A good police thriller with lots of twists and turns My 1st book from this author, definitely on the read list now.

    12. This was a thriller Who could have guessed the outcome but all finished quite satisfactorily Pity about the many poor rape and murder victims along the way though Is it my imagination or are the villains becoming and depraved as writers look for involved plots and horrible crimes I thought it was OK though as long as it is fiction and doesn t happen to any real person.

    13. The Survivors in the Survivors Club are three women who were the victims of rape by the same man It points out how devastating rape really is Rape doesn t get a lot of acknowledgment as the horrifying crime that it really is There are prevalent attitudes in society that a woman asked for it or she put herself in a compromising position by the party she attended or the liquor she drank or the boy she want out with or the clothes she wore I ve heard the attitude that it is only the feminists who a [...]

    14. I am reviewing the novel The Survivors Club by Lisa Gardner which is an excellent thriller which I bought from a local supermarket I think this book is either a standalone thriller or the first in a new series It s also doing well in the British Paperback Bestsellers Chart currently The plot is 3 college students have been raped by a serial rapist and he has been prosecuted but on the steps of the courtroom he was gunned down and died and it looks like a professional job Initially suspicion fall [...]

    15. Warning, if you haven t started reading this novel yet this might be a small spoiler I just finished Lisa s The Perfect Husband as well and I m starting to notice a theme in her novels While I find her characters and story build wildly creative and interesting, these two novels are very alike Strong female characters distrusting of the police Serial killer escapes prison killing members of the police and recapturing said strong women Women rise up and save the day in the nick of time Serial kill [...]

    16. I ve been reading a lot of slower paced epic historical fiction novels, so I was looking forward to a fast paced thriller I noticed that Lisa Gardner s novels tend to be highly rated on this site so I decided to introduce myself to her writing, starting with one of her non series novels.While I did appreciate the primary antagonist character she created David Price , I found most of the other character development in this novel to be rather shallow and their interaction with each other to be rat [...]

    17. The Survivors ClubGiven that Lisa Gardner is a very popular name in this business and in this genre, I had already known I was in for a surprise before I even decided on reading this book I just wasn t that much prepared, to say the least The Survivors Club is an ideal start if you re just beginning to read Gardner s books This is one of her few stand alone novels, I believe, and one an avid reader should not miss from this author.Okay, the synopsis goes like this THE FIRST RULE IS NEVER BLAME T [...]

    18. Another great Gardner read Every time I thought I knew where the plot was headed there was another twist One thing is for sure Gardner can always come up with even evil and twisted individuals again I was pleased to see the woman of The Survivor s Club found happiness in the end If you like crime books you ll enjoy this one.

    19. Another great mystery thriller detective whodunit that is every bit the page turner you would expect from this author of serious page turners 2 hours of sleep is than enough for work, as long as I can finish my book , type of serious mystery writer that Lisa Gardner is.

    20. It seems I forgot to review that one, wellExcellent book, kept me on the edge of my seat and by the way, it s much, much better than the tv movie they made out of it

    21. Excellent, creepy, and chilling Lisa Gardner s usual standard Couldn t put it down Highly recommended Can t wait to see what she comes up with next

    22. 5 Stars for the reading I listened to this on audio with Anna Fields as the narrator, whose voice I adore and who can perform the hell out of a story She was, as usual, superb Gruff Fitch was as different from Dreamy Meg who was as different from no nonsense Jillian etc So much so that I always knew who was speaking.4 Stars for the suspense and characters Loved Griffin the state cop with anger issues with good reason especially And I liked how incredibly twisted the story was.3 Stars for some pl [...]

    23. This was my first Lisa Gardner book I am reading a second one as I am writing this I had heard of her and was keen to read what she wrote I wasn t disappointed The first thing that struck me as I started reading is that Gardner knows how to write By that I means that, unlike a lot of crime readers I like for their plots and stories than for their mastery of writing, Gardner uses a variety of techniques to tell her stories She shifts viewpoints, she uses metaphors, she alternates between deeply [...]

    24. THE SURVIVORS CLUB VGGardner, Lisa 5th book, Stand AloneA sensitive but tough Rhode Island state police detective just returned from a bereavement leave his beloved wife has died of cancer , Griffin encounters a hell of a case a serial rapist, Eddie Como, is professionally hit in the courthouse parking lot, but whoever set up the kill doesn t want any loose ends a car bomb results in an extra crispy assassin The prime suspects for this crime are Eddie s surviving victims Jillian Hayes, who was b [...]

    25. I thought that this was a fabulous crime thriller It had many twists and turns and certainly offered some surprises and kept you guessing until the end I thought the characters were well developed and the writing was very descriptive Three woman have survived the rape assault of the College Hill Rapist One of the group organizes them and they are known as the Survivors Club As a group they learn about rape survivors and statistics They take self defense classes and meet often They truly support [...]

    26. I have waited 2 days to write a review so that i would not disrespect a writer and her artistic effort which by itself is something to be appreciated Allow me to put it this way after around page 150, i started to skim and scan, literally glancing at only first and last sentences of each paragraph, up until the chapter before last, where all is revealed and did not miss a beat, but saved myself from quite a frustration arising from the writing I had picked two books from Ms Gardner, looking at t [...]

    27. So, I admit I read this Gardner is a competent writer It s too bad that she doesn t turn her mind and her talent to real issues She doesn t seem to have any interest in overarching themes other than headlines and a bit of romance and basic CSI stuff that everyone already knows Her cops tend to have the dead spouse trope going on All the standard cop demons, blah blah There s no deep psychology or sociology or political economy Flynn has an abiding interest in the way the recession is twisting Am [...]

    28. Fast paced, exciting read I would definately try some other of this author s books The only thing I didn t like was it was almost too neat at the end Too convenient I know I am pretty harsh with my ratings and not a whole lot gets over 3 stars from me I may be turning into a book snob Someone stop me

    29. Survivors as activists and not as vigilantes, is a healthy turn around The plot was engaging but the tension did not build, although the curiosity did The transitions were not smooth The type of masculine hero rescuing females did not work for me However, Gardner gives us a unique twist on the SVU Special Victims Unit genre and for this I give her a well rounded 3.
