An adaptation that's little more than a watered-down version of a story that's already lost so much of its original consistency. David Ehrlich. It's full of showpiece scenes of nihilistic acting out, but it's not full of scenes that reveal human character in an interesting way. Owen Gleiberman. A Million Little Pieces is its treatment of addiction as an obstacle to be overcome, instead of a condition to managed throughout life.
Issues as complex as this have little need for such reductive, simplistic narratives. Christopher Machell. If you're wondering if this is material we've seen many times before, well, you probably know the answer to that already. Gregory Ellwood. It's well-acted and -directed, but it's also completely familiar - which is frustrating, because we know there's a better story just outside the frame.

View 2 comments. I'm a huge fan of Jilliane Hoffman and I have loved all of her books thus far. I have been looking forward to reading this one for quite a while now. The blurb sucked me right in and after a few chapters I was already totally hooked. This story is another crazy page turner and I wasn't able to stop reading. All the Little Pieces isn't a classical thriller and that's what might disappoint some readers.
It is not about finding out who's the murderer - it's about all the 4. It is not about finding out who's the murderer - it's about all the consequences one single decision can have. And Jilliane Hoffman managed to illustrate these consequences in a truely intriguing way. The plot is moving quite fast and we are faced by a number of time jumps, but it didn't bother me. The characters and their reactions were incredibly realistic and I couldn't stop wondering - wondering about one very important question: What would I have done? Once again, Jilliane Hoffman introduced juridical aspects into her story and I truely loved them.
SHORT & SWEET REVIEW: ALL THE LITTLE PIECES BY JILLIANE HOFFMAN
That's what making her books so special and different from many other stories out there. I loved the ending and I hope that I am not the only one hoping for a sequel! May 14, Karen rated it really liked it. This is one of those scenarios that will make you wonder 'what would I do? This is the situation that Faith faced and in those few moments it took for her to decide to drive away, her life changed.
Unbeknown to Faith, her young daughter was not asleep i This is one of those scenarios that will make you wonder 'what would I do? Unbeknown to Faith, her young daughter was not asleep in the car, as she had thought and when later, young Maggie reveals what happened, Faith loses a vital opportunity to tell the whole truth and one omission leads to a whole lot of trouble. I have read a few books by Jilliane Hoffman and have enjoyed them all. She can always be relied on to provide a suspenseful story. I have to admit that as the story progressed, I did begin to lose some sympathy for Faith.
The decisions she made seemed to go from bad to worse and although I can accept that, because of her personal circumstances, she may not have been able to think or act rationally, there were many times when I thought 'WHY did you do that'? This was a fast paced and well written story with realistic characters. I particularly had a lot of time for the detective, Bryan Nill. He was rather stereotypical in that he was facing a crisis in his personal life with marital and family problems etc but he was sympathetic and non-judgemental as much as he could be in his dealings with Faith.
He could see that she had far deeper issues affecting her life and I liked him for that. There was one occasion later in the book when I thought that there was a missed opportunity to rack up the tension even more but that might have been just my slightly twisted mind! I really enjoyed this thriller, the premise was original and the story certainly kept my interest all the way through. I was especially pleased to see the return of C. Townsend, having met her in previous books.
I have the feeling that there is more to come from this story, perhaps as part of a future book? May 18, Bookread2day rated it it was amazing. No one writes thrillers like Jilliane Hoffman. All fans of serial killer investigations will want to add this thriller to their book case. Girls are disappearing in Palm Beach County. Detective Bryan Nil can't prove it's a serial killer. The story opens up with your heart beating fast as a young woman is running with bare feet through the sugar cane fields away from someone.
Faith Saunders is the perfect wife, mother and sister who is loved and admired by everyone that knows her. When Faith's sister Charity has a birthday party, loving sister Faith travels two-hundred miles in a tropical storm to be there for her sister. At the party Faith can't help her self, she doesn't like Charity's husband Nick, and she doesn't like the damage he inflicted with his words to Charity on her birthday.
Faith thinks that Charity should pull her self together and tell her husband to go to hell. As an argument snaps in Charity wants Faith to take her four-year-old daughter Maggie and to get out of her house. As Faith is driving home with the rain pounding on her roof and rain the size of quarters Faith has got lost driving home in the storm. As Faith pulls over and rest for a while until the worst of the rain passes, a disheveled young girl bangs on the car window pleading for help shouting 'Help me! He's coming'. What Faith sees next is a man dragging the girl away.
Faith is feeling guilty as she did nothing to help the girl and the scene that happened that night haunt's her. But Faith wasn't the only one in the car that night. Faith's four- year-old daughter identifies the girl in the news as the young girl screaming at her mother's car window for help.
So much happens in this unputdownable thriller, your heart will keep pounding throughout! I hope all thriller readers enjoy reading All The Pieces as much as what I did. Jun 04, Joanne Robertson rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-reads. I did not want this book to end and I was so worried that the ending when it did come would be an outcome that I didn't want!! I became so involved in this roller coaster thriller that I really came to care about Faith and Maggie and wanted to follow their story for longer than the book allowed!!
It takes a brilliant author to make that happen. This book is a stunningly well researched plot that is part serial killer thriller, part courtroom drama but combined throughout with a detailed study of I did not want this book to end and I was so worried that the ending when it did come would be an outcome that I didn't want!! This book is a stunningly well researched plot that is part serial killer thriller, part courtroom drama but combined throughout with a detailed study of a family in crisis.
Faith is visiting her sister for a birthday celebration but when things kick off she decides to drive home instead of stay the night as she had originally planned. With her 4 year old daughter Maggie in the car, a rather intoxicated Faith ends up getting lost in the middle of the night without her bag or phone with her. It's then that she sees a young girl, bloodied and scared, banging on her window asking for help.
About the Author, Jilliane Hoffman
Two men are about to drag her off into the woods but Maggie is so scared she drives off, trying to convince herself that what she has just witnessed had a plausible explanation. Telling no-one, she trys to forget what happened but then Maggie spots the girls photo on the news-the murdered girls photo. I loved Maggie, the little girl has so much to contend with and struggles with her emotions.
The courtroom scenes when she is giving evidence were absolutely heartbreaking and I felt physically sick at what she was put through. The author has done a lot of research and you can tell that she has a background in the legal system as she brings a total authenticity to those scenes in this book.
Told in short, easy to follow chapters, this book is unputdownable at times and I loved it! I loved all the gritty characterisation and the way it gave my goosebumps with the creepiest serial killers I have come across in a long while. I think this author is often overlooked so do check this out if you enjoy Karin Slaughter or Patricia Cornwell and I am sure you won't be disappointed. I received a copy of this book from Goodreads as part of their First Read giveaways. Listened to in audio format. Faith Saunders is married to Nick a successful lawyer.
On the surface they seem a successful couple, but Nick had an affair with his intern and although Faith and Nick are still together she is finding hard to cope with his betrayal. Although Faith was always a very heavy drinker, she is relying on it more and more to cope everyday. One weekend Faith goes to her sister Charity's birthday party, taking her daughter 4 year old Maggie along. There is a storm brewing so Fa Listened to in audio format. There is a storm brewing so Faith and Maggie intend to spend the night at Charity's house.
However Faith and Charity have a huge row and Faith already drunk drives back to Florida with Maggie. When Faith's car hits something the road is empty, then a young women approaches the car and shouts 'please help me'. Maggie is asleep in the back of the car and Faith is reluctant to let this woman in her car. Then a man approaches the car and drags the woman into the woods. Faith doesn't understand what happened. She intends to call the police from the nearest town but doesn't because she has been drinking and already been prosecuted in the past for a DUI.
Weeks later the young woman's body is found, Faith is afraid to tell the police what she did, instead young Maggie sees a picture on TV and tells Nick' that is the lady mum wouldn't help'. When Faith finally contacts the police she and Maggie become star eyewitnesses and Faith's reputation is destroyed by the media. Although the killer is quickly arrested the police they suspect he was not working alone.
Faith puts herself in a vulnerable situation and is almost kidnapped by the killers accomplice. Wow, the first few chapters in this book were scary and left me with goosebumps. I enjoyed this book because it was also about the consequences of Faith's actions. I also liked Detective Brian Nill who was very sympathetic to Faith. The courtroom scenes when little Maggie was interviewed in court were particularly distressing.
Author Is Kicked Out of Oprah Winfrey's Book Club
I felt sorry for Faith for being in a situation that was out of her control, but she kept making bad decisions to try to save her marriage which made it hard to care about her.. I highly recommend this book it was so much more than a standard courtroom thriller. Apr 26, Shirley Revill rated it it was amazing Shelves: thriller , crime , crime-fiction , thought-provoking , murder , horror , stuff-that-nightmares-are-made-read , audiobook , death , fiction.
I listened to the audiobook and boy this was one scary story. The narration was brilliant and had me looking over my shoulder when I was listening late at night. I have never read anything before by this author but I will definitely be looking for more books. Really impressed and just sorry when I completed the book. Highly recommended. Jun 06, Cleopatra Pullen rated it really liked it Shelves: crime , own. What would you do if you were in a car with your young daughter and a young woman knocked on your window and asked for help?
Would you risk letting her into your car? Or would you, as Faith Saunders did, ignore the plea even though the girl in question was soon joined by two men. The moral dilemmas posed by this novel present the reader with a superb premise and this promise is realised in the execution. This is a story of how a single lie by omission can have devastating consequences. Faith kept What would you do if you were in a car with your young daughter and a young woman knocked on your window and asked for help? This is an unusual take on crime fiction, the witness usually serves their purpose by giving a statement so it was great to read a book which concentrates on a different perspective.
With a mixture of viewpoints including Faith, the perpetrator and DI Nils the reader gets to see the story from multiple angles. I particularly liked DI Nils who came across as a level-headed investigator determined to get to the bottom of the mystery but not unsympathetic to the woman who had delayed it.
At first the author felt the need to over-emphasise certain points by means of repetition which I always feel is unnecessary and slightly annoying especially as this book clocked in at just under pages a few of which could easily have been discarded. I was pleased that this tendency lessened as the pace picked up and the author trusted her readers to remember the key bits of information. This is a superb thriller, well-written with a great array of characters. The tension is there from the start but ratchets up to unbearable levels as the story progresses to its satisfying conclusion.
I want to say a big thank you to Lovereading UK who arranged for me to receive a copy of this book in return for my review. Very rarely do I read mainstream crime fiction that I simply don't want to end. Faith Saunders is a mother and wife, trying to put the shattered pieces of her life together following her husbands infidelity and the troubles the couple is having with their young daughter Maggie - both at school and home, when all sense of normalcy is destroyed by a chance encounter with a pair of serial killers and a victim who managed to escape.
Escape Very rarely do I read mainstream crime fiction that I simply don't want to end. Escape, only to find a locked car door and a reluctant Faith determined to keep the outside night terrors at bay from her semi drunk self and sleeping daughter in the back seat of their parked car.
The middle of the night small town stop off to rest her head following a heated argument with her sister wasn't meant to be the thing that would threaten everything she'd ever known - that was meant to be done with, the cheating husband outed, the broken marriage sticky-tapped together. This one event, the pleading in the young woman's eyes, the harshness of the man who snatched her away - the fear of repercussion and endangerment too much to bare.
Two weeks later her actions are out in the open for all to judge, and for the killers to remedy their mistake of letting a witness live. Of letting two witnesses live. The murder police and the Saunders family don't battle for page time with each character type complimentary to the plot. This book has a real human feel to it which adds layers of depth and emotional characterization that accurately portrays three sides of a criminal investigation; the suspected, the witness, and the law, not to mention victims and public backlash Faith experiences. The story just feels well-rounded and real.
