    One thought on “The Killing Lessons”

    1. I have to say, this one managed to poke at some of my deep seated fears, which doesn t seem to happen often enough I m a horror movie junkie and crave a panic inducing level of fear every single time I pick up a dark and gritty read I want to be scared out of my mind for some unknown reason I know, crazy right You will never find me living in a remote area, in the middle of the woods, with no neighbors around never Who would I run to for help if something bad went down It would make me feel way [...]

    2. 2.5 StarsI couldn t help but be somewhat disappointed with this book I had heard such wonderful things about it and a lot of my friends have given it a minimum of 4 stars I just didn t feel all the LOVE.There are a few things going on at once in this thriller First we meet Rowena and her family at a secluded house where two armed men enter 10 Year old Nell is the only one who escapes and flees into the snow One of the men follows her and so begins Nell s fight for survival At the same time Valar [...]

    3. Absolutely freaking fabulous serial killer chiller Oh man I have read so many crime books featuring serial killer themes and this is an absolute stand out I wish every single book I read was this engaging, well written, exciting and chilling, that would make me one permanently happy reader Don t you just love a book that you love from the first word to the last Yup, this was one of those.I will try not to gush TOO much with this review but seriously this is an outstanding book and if you are a c [...]

    4. I came to this hearing really good things about it and who the novelist was, so my expectations were fairly high Unfortunately, as it turns out, a little too high I couldn t get this at all.It starts out really well A family in a remote part of Colarado are hit upon by two twisted killers, told with graphic visualisations and genuinely scary Especially the little girl who manages to escape the evil clutches of one of the men But then the story just lost it for me We have the obligatory drink dep [...]

    5. Teaser Review Full review near publication.Serial killer thrillers are tricky things they can be way over the top, so extreme that you lose all sense of feeling They can be under cooked, so they are not terrifically frightening They can border on ridiculous when it comes to police procedure Writing a truly scary, authentic feeling, heart stopping thriller involving a serial killer is not the easiest thing to achieve I ve read many and out of those I would quote a handful as being anywhere near a [...]

    6. Glen Duncan can change his name, but he can t lose his style There is ample evidence of his writing skills in this new excursion as he ticks all the boxes of serial killer fiction a sadistic killer with perverted fantasies, an alcoholic detective with a lousy private life, a missing woman and an unlikely hero This area of crime fiction has a lot of imposters, but very few writers do it as well as this.

    7. A good book that could have been a great book if 1 It had been about 100 pages shorter There was too much unnecessary and boring side story This had me losing interest several times until some new burst of action happened 2 The stereotypical good cop, but has a drinking problem interfering with her work scenario 3 Eliminating the Carla character altogether and the whole she hates Valerie subplot Didn t care about it, and it was one of thosethings that made parts drag for me 4 Going too over the [...]

    8. Dear reader,On a seemingly ordinary day,I walked into a bookstore in search of distraction Sitting on a shelf,the only copy left,it called to me So naturally I did what I normally do when deciding to part with my hard earned cash.I opened the first page and started to read this book After a few moments I knew that I d like it What I didn t know was how utterly compelling and addictive it would turn out to be To say this is a story about not one but two serial killers does this book an injustice [...]

    9. The world was full of women not noticing the men who were noticing them.Sometimes you just want to read a really fast paced thriller, full of suspense and edge of your seat excitement and this ticks every box It begins with Rowena Cooper, a widowed mother of two children, who curses her stupidity in feeling safe in her remote house, when two men walk rather than break in and her nightmare begins The two men have been murdering women throughout the country and homicide detective, Valerie Hart, is [...]

    10. Saul Black aka British author, Glen Duncan delivers THE KILLING LESSONS, a dark, and shocking psycho crime suspense literary thriller, which will leave your head spinning Making it difficult sleep after reading this one, with heart pounding adrenaline As the mutilated bodies mount and the objects collected inside them scream, sicko a poor little girl barely escapes, injured, collapses and lands on a cabin door in the remote woods in the snow The man at the cabin is crippled, can barely walk no p [...]

    11. The last four weeks have been so busy birthdays and readying for the holidays that when I started this book at the end of November, I didn t get to read it as much as I wanted to Then, this past weekend, my 91 year old grandmother went into the hospital with an ischemic bowel and sepsis For days, we waited to see if she would get better The stress, the anxiety, the grief it was exceptionally exhausting, my body was screaming for sleep, but I just couldn t So in the ICU waiting room, I finally re [...]

    12. 4.25 stars Horrible serial killer Kick butt cop This book had me on edge the whole time Somewhat graphic too Very good book but my next read needs to be something happy full of unicorns and rainbows and musical forest animals Lol.

    13. I am not even going to attempt to summarize the plot I think it s suffice to say The Killing Lessons was an outstanding serial killer thrill ride Saul Black aka Glen Duncan clearly has superb writing skills The Killing Lessons was utterly frightening, tense and suspenseful The first chapter really pulls you in There were a lot of characters, and Saul Black did an amazing job of fully fleshing out each one, which was great But and I m sure that this will make no sense to anyone but me there was s [...]

    14. This is fast paced, exciting and the last 50% is thrilling and genuinely scary It s also beautifully written, as you d expect from Glen Duncan the author, using Saul Black as a pseudonym However, it s difficult to review this book without being aware of the hype surrounding it, with quotes such as the best serial killer thriller since Silence of the Lambs all over Twitter It s not, mainly because it doesn t do anything new TKL has got everything you d expect in this kind of novel a detective wit [...]

    15. I haven t read a decent serial killer novel in such a long time mostly because I grew rather weary of the genre since there was a dearth of original specimens out there Saul Black has succeeded in luring me back with this accomplished piece of writing which I devoured in one sitting.The chapters are short and succinct with lots of twists and turns to make this a really addictive read The characters are true to life and the author takes care and time to let the reader know about both the goodies [...]

    16. My View If you love crime fiction, if you love serial killer narratives that run full pelt off the page then this is a book for you This book demands that you read it in one sitting be prepared to sit and read four hundred and eight pages of pulse raising drama without moving from your chair, there are no distractions important enough to tear you away from this book.If this book was a film I would watch with my hands partly covering my eyes Terrifying

    17. 3 stars How many lives does this murderer have For the most part, I thought this book was pretty good I cringed a lot during the murder scenes This guy was disgusting, but I guess you can t expect much from a guy who doesn t know that L comes before M and has to carry a chart around with him.Also, I didn t care too much for the main character, Valerie There was just something about her that just didn t hit me the right way And Carla, I couldn t stand her at all While there were a lot of moments [...]

    18. Amazing, frightening, suspenseful had everything A really well written novel Enjoyed the characters even the bad guys and believe that they were very well developed This book catered for many emotions and many shifting emotions One chapter I was happy, then on edge followed up by horrified Great read this one Have already check out other books by this author.

    20. Everyone knows my love of serial killers and this one was very very good A creepy killer and his partner, well written characters that you care about and although he kept 3 stories going I was never confused and he tied it all together Loved it.

    21. I ll start by saying this is a low four star rating There were a few moments throughout in which I considered giving three stars, yet in the end I had to opt for the four It is far from the strongest four star rating I have ever given, but I couldn t bring myself to drop it down to a three star rating as I enjoyed it too much for that.I m not one hundred percent sure about how I feel about this one, though As I said, I enjoyed it too much to give a three star rating but it wasn t quite a four st [...]

    22. There seems to be a flood of psychological thrillers these days since Gone Girl Unfortunately, I am not a fan of that book and so, I feel a little ambivalent towards this genre In saying that, it still hasn t stop me reading one or two and I thought this was one Fortunately, it s not And fortunately, I have absolutely enjoyed this reading this book even if my heart was permanently in my mouth from start to end.The book began with a chilling scene It s a scene which grabbed my attention straight [...]

    23. 2.5I m so disappointed There was so much promise to it I can t even describe it I think this reviewer summarizes my thoughts about this book better than I could ever do it.I would have given it a higher rating if the Carla subplot had been eliminated Unnecessary What was the point

    24. Solid 3 book, I could pick a few minor faults but they can be forgiven because it is very good for a debut, look forward to from Saul Black in the future

    25. The Killing Lessons was a captivating and unpredictable thriller from start to finish The crimes committed in this novel are absolutely horrible and very graphic, so be aware if you consider picking this up In my opinion, the thriller aspects were phenomenal I couldn t put the book down I, however, wasn t a fan of some of the other elements in The Killing Lessons, such as the ableist language You can read my full review on my blog content and trigger warning for rape, murder, sexism language suc [...]
