Pieces of Her Book Review

Another book done and this one falls under the list of ones I recommend! Apparently a lot of other people liked it too because it’s going to be a show on Netflix. I can’t seem to find an exact release date but filming started in early 2021 from what I can tell. It falls under the thriller/drama category and is definitely a page turner. I flew through it pretty quickly and plan on checking out the author to see what else she has written.

One of the things I loved about this book was that it flashed from the present to the past and that’s how we slowly piece together what’s happening. It starts out with a young woman, Andrea, out to eat with her mom, Laura, when a gunman shows up. He thinks Andrea is a cop because of her uniform and targets her. The mom takes him down with insane precision, like I’m talking about being some kind of professional and everyone is sort of like what just happened. Someone recorded it and it was all over the news, the cops are suspicious because of the way the takedown happened.

A few more weird things happen, which I’m trying not to say because I don’t want to ruin anything but Andrea catches a man torturing her mom for information. After that encounter, Andrea ends up on the run trying to figure out who her mom is and why she can do these insane self defence things. People are after them and the stories we get to see in the past start making a lot of sense.

There were a few dull parts that I wanted to skip through but everything is all connected so you can’t exactly skip forward or else you might miss a key part. I’ll definitely be watching this on Netflix because I think it has the potential to be a pretty good show. I’m curious to see how they pull it all off.

Would you rather read the book or watch the show?
