    One thought on “Retribution

    1. Phils Osophie on said:

      Unglaublich gut angefangen, im Mittelteil unglaublich abgeflacht und dann im letzten Viertel noch mal aufgedreht Eher ein klassischer Krimi mit ein paar Thrillerelementen W re es umgekehrt gewesen, h tte es mir wesentlich besser gefallen.

    2. Maddy on said:

      RATING 0.5Reasons why I didn t like this book Tired Cliches Sadistic rape scene With a guy in a clown mask Serial killer who gruesomely mutilates his victims, cutting their hearts out The lead female and the supremely sensitive lead investigator end up in a relationshipBad writing The waves left in their wake splashed the beach towel bow bikinis andcaused the otherwise proud captains to spill their beers His hair was tousled on his head So last night she had sat on her balcony and thought all th [...]

      Jilliane Hoffman, Retribution Putnam, 2004 It s not often that a single book causes me to put aside everything else I m reading to concentrate on it I got my copy of Retribution in the mail, and started paging through it about half an hour later Thirty six hours later, with little food and sleep in the interim, I d finished it, having put aside the other books in the queue to concentrate solely on Jilliane Hoffman s debut novel.Some books are best summed up with the same what if question the aut [...]

    4. Brenda on said:

      This is a remarkable debut novel I must say up front that the protagonist is a rape torture victim Not everyone can stomach the horrors that were perpetrated on her, but from that moment on, I understood her motivation The character was well written, and I felt her fear, paranoia, anger and loss of control This book was not a white knuckle page turner it slowly and methodically revealed the story and its surprises It is also a sad, but perhaps realistic, commentary on our law enforcement and leg [...]

    5. Asghar Abbas on said:

      Hahaha, don t bother with this juvenile mess What a vapid offering The writing was terrible, it was a bad book Also, there was no mystery there to speak of Anyone who has ever read a book or two or is familiar with a working of a simple mystery novel would be able to figure who the increasing cartoonish killer is.Plus, I think Hoffman needs to see someone professionally Almost every character, cardboard as they were, was overly sexual Now there is nothing necessarily wrong with that, we are sexu [...]

    6. Sarlis on said:

      Dieses Buch sieht von au en so unschaubar harmlos aus, Aber auf den ersten Seite wurde mir klar, in welche Richtung diese Geschichte gehen k nnte Ich hatte von Anfang an hohe Erwartungen an das Buch, welche dann aber im mittleren Teil des Buches nicht mehr so gut umgesetzt wurden wie ich es mir gew nscht h tte.Dennoch durch die Kurzen knappen Kapitel lies es sich gut und fl ssig lesen und so flog man auch durch den etwas f r mich gezogenen Mittelteil.Am Ende war ich dann wieder wie gefesselt von [...]

    7. Nina on said:

      Der Klappentext klingt ja einfach schon sehr gut und das Buch hat auch so angefangen Was ich dann aber gar nicht erwartet hatte, war, dass sich die Autorin mehr auf die juristische Seite konzentriert als auf die Ermittlungsarbeit der Detectives Das hat mich aber einfach total begeistert was war von einer Jurastudentin auch anderes zu erwarten D Dadurch wird auch super auf Probleme eingegangen, die ich bei anderen Thrillern, die sich mehr auf die Ermittlung konzentrieren, teilweise vermisse Auch [...]

    8. Sunshineandbooks1410 on said:

      Dieses Buch habe ich vor mehr als 10 Jahren gelesen und v llig vergessen wie unglaublich gut und spannend die Story ist Die Autorin schreibt so erschreckend brutal und gut Weiter geht es mit Morpheus.

    9. Pamela on said:

      Judging from the other reviews it looks like I m the only one who did not enjoy this book This is my second novel of Jilliane Hoffman s I ve read and it will be my last I should have learned my lesson after reading her other one I didn t find this novel entertaining at all Nor was it suspenseful or thrilling For a court room drama it s quite the bore It revolves around C.J Townsend who is a district attorney in the state of Florida Twelve years earlier while studying in New York she was violentl [...]

    10. Tintentraeume on said:

      Starker Anfang, sich ziehender Mittelteil und berst rztes Ende Die Hauptfiguren waren sehr sympathisch und die Grundidee hatte an sich viel Potential, dieses wurde aber leider nicht zu 100% ausgesch pft Schade Trotzdem bleiben die Folgeb nde der Autorin auf der Wunschliste Rezension folgt

    11. DaJa on said:

      3,5 SterneJilliane Hoffmans Erstlingswerk Cupido hat mich hin und hergerissen Der Anfang ist dann auch recht vielversprechend Man wird Zeuge eines brutalen berfalls auf eine junge Frau, liest sich schnell in die Handlung ein und die ersten Seiten verschlingt man pausenlos und ohne M he.Aber nach der ersten Szene flacht der Spannungsbogen ziemlich ab Man lernt eine junge, aufstrebende Anw ltin kennen In jungen Jahren ist sie Opfer eines sadistischen Vergewaltigers gewesen, sp ter versucht sie die [...]

    12. Liz Cee on said:

      This is classic edge of your seat suspense I don t want to delve too much into the plot because the twists and turns are what makes this an excellent read.Chloe Larson is a law student in New York, about to take the bar One night, she is brutally tortured and raped by a man who, horrifyingly, knows so many intimate details about her.She survives and, 12 years later, is living in Florida and practicing law under a new name and appearance Her attacker was never captured.We travel with CJ as she be [...]

    13. James Fitzgerald on said:

      Psychological Thriller that I really enjoyed Kept you into the book from the first to last page For a new writer and her first book I am envious of the suspense and surprises that she was able to capture in this novel The character is a law student who is brutally raped 12 years later with her name changed and looks different she is a successful assistant district attorney, who has landed a case of a possible serial killer and rapist that she recognizes as her rapist Should she do the right thin [...]

    14. Luise on said:

      I enjoyed this book a lot It s thrilling to the end with a lot of twists and new revelations etc.I guessed some of the turns, but there were still enough how and am I right thoughts So it definitely didn t get boring

    15. Francesca on said:

      Very nice and hooking book I loved the first part because the writer has been very good at describing what Chloe goes through I clicked immediately with her I will definitely read the second book.

    17. Yv on said:

      Dit was een aparte, maar zeer interessante thriller Het boek bestaat uit drie delen en elk deel is op een andere manier geschreven Ik vind het lastig om deze review te schrijven zonder spoilers uit het verhaal te geven, dus sorry als het wat warrig is hihi.De intro en het eerste deel waren fantastisch constant een beklemmend gevoel en ondanks dat ze vrij gedetailleerd is over de nare gebeurtenis, leest het toch prettig werd en was ik de hele tijd nieuwsgierig naar meer.Het tweede deel beslaat wa [...]

      This was my first book by Jilliane Hoffman As a matter of fact I had never heard of her before On another site I came across this book and decided to give it a try in German From the very first page the story grabbed me At first there s the brutal rape and the aftermath And then, I realised that C.J and Chloe are the same person yes, soemtimes it takes me awhile to figure things out After that I couldn t put the book down, wanting to know what s next , what will happen how will it end please let [...]

    19. Kaylol on said:

      Just excellent.It made me think on whether it s right or wrong to lie or do something illegal to get someone you know deserves to be dead, dead The main character is an incredible woman who has to face her rapist and cross the boundaries of what s ethical and what isn t Does the end justify the means

      Es fing sehr spannend an, leider keine anhaltende kontinuit t.

    21. Carmina on said:

      Gro artiger Thriller Jilliane Hoffman hat einen neuen Fan dazugewonnen Unfassbar spannend, sprachlich super, tolle Charaktere und mal eine ganz andere Sicht auf den Kriminalfall.

    22. Dan Richter on said:

      Jiliane Hoffman, von der ich nichts kannte, wird, so musste ich lesen, als der aktuelle Goldstandard des Genres gehandhabt, und Cupido gilt als ihr bestes Werk.Es kommt nicht allzu oft vor, dass ich mich in die Thriller Welt verirre Ich kenne mich bei den Autoren nicht aus, vertraue auf H rensagen oder gute Verfilmungen Hohe literarische Anspr che habe ich nicht, aber eben auf nicht zu doofe Art, ein bisschen Nervenkitzel hervorrufen.Und Cupido entt uscht auf der ganzen Strecke.Erstens Ich nehme [...]

    24. Tonya Coleman on said:

      This is one of my favorite rereads, but it has been a few years and I d forgotten a lot It still gives me chills and it is still quite the mess with your mind kind of book This book just sticks with you and you really want the heroine C.J to come out on top after all she goes through Some of the scenes in the beginning are so hard to read but it is worth it This book just keeps you flipping the pages and is hard to put down.

    25. Trisha on said:

      So it took me 7 and a bit days to finish this book, which generally speaking for me is quite quick I m a slow reader I ve been known to read other books a lot faster, like 4 books in a series within 4 days, but this one I felt like I got through pretty quickly It was easy to read, pretty gripping, and interesting I kind of suspected from very early on that there would be two different major criminals in play, but I wasn t entirely sure who the actual Cupid would be At least until I read the part [...]
