    1. First time reading this author's work and this was such an odd story! I liked it but didn't love it. At the same time, it was so humorous that I couldn't look away! ◆ Wayne and Kirk Edgerton are thirty-eight year-old twins with some interesting physical characteristics. They're also polar opposites in terms of personality, mannerism, ethics, and humor. One of the twins makes a poor choice in judgement one evening and the repercussions affect them both.Ultimately, this book served up:• A grea [...]


    2. I loved writing this story. It gave me a chance to step outside of myself and have a little fun, which as Martin Misunderstood will tell you is not something that all my readers appreciate. I should also add that none of the proceeds from this story went to me. It was used solely to give grants to libraries in the US and the Reading Agency in the UK, so if you hate this story, then you basically hate libraries.That being said, I am very glad to see that so many people got the joke in this one. ( [...]


    3. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this!I know Karin Slaughter self admits that this isn't her usual run of the mile; and I am extremely thankful for that. The writing and characters was great, the subject topic was different; but this just wasn't for me.


    4. Karin Slaughter Thorn in my SideEek, ok, so I am a Karin Slaughter fan, that said this is not my favorite book by the author.It may not be my favorite but it is one I will remember.A short story with 1 and a half protagonists or two protagonists or two halves depending on your pov it was a story of extremes. Black vs White, Good vs Evil. Brother against brother and brothers standing together. The book is a fast read and the ending is as shocking as is the main points of scene development. The wo [...]


    5. Another short Kindle and OMG Karin Slaughter at her best. Even in a short story she has packed a punch in a story that will make you want more. But very confusing with the story of Conjoined twins who want to be normal. But I think it's funny in places as if you're reading about 2 different twins who are feeling different stuff.Not sure what I think really, but just love the way Karin Slaughter writes her Thrillers.


    6. Interesting subject matter! Not what I was expecting at all. I've not read a Slaughter book for years, and while this short story wasn't great, I'd still go and read more from this author!



    7. Okay, so I think regular visitors to my blog are aware that Karin Slaughter can't do much wrong in my eyes and I always get a little bit excited when one of her short stories rolls around on my Short Stories Challenge. As the synopsis suggests, "vintage Slaughter," is perfect terminology to use as what happens during this story is shocking, compelling and disturbing, everything I've come to expect from the author and yet she still manages to surprise me, every single time.This very dark, twisted [...]


    8. Ya necesitaba leer algo más sobre la autora, aunque es un relato bastante corto, me gusto lo retorcido y lo sarcástico que es a la vez, no me esperaba nada de el, no sabia absolutamente sobre que trataba; simplemente decidí leerlo y me sorprendió y termino gustándome. Sin duda alguna quiero leer más de Karin Slaughter.




    9. In whichever way one looks at this, it is indeed a unique or, rather, somewhat strange story. The protagonists in Thorn in My Side are the conjoined twins Kirk and Wayne. They share between them the most important body parts, however the goddess of luck has decided to bless the one and fail the other. So Kirk is charming, tough and cunning, while Wayne is graceless, shy and weak. Having to share the same body makes them both unhappy, but just the one, the former, can openly express his feelings, [...]


    10. Review Taken From The Pewter WolfThis short story tells the story of conjoined twins Kirk and Wayne. One night, Kirk picks up a random girl in a bar, while Wayne has to pretend he's not there. Expect dark deeds happen in the car park that night Now, in theory, this should be an interesting story. The idea of what would happen if a brother did a terrible thing while his conjoined twin tried to stop him and whether the law would convict one brother for the sin of another would have made interestin [...]


    11. My first taste of Karin Slaughter’s work came when I read her novel Fallen in May, I was thrilled when I heard about her new Kindle Single coming out and Pre-Ordered it when it was announced.This Kindle Single has 880 location that is 33 pages. The story is a twisted and disturbing tale of to male thoraco-omphalopagus twins fused from the upper chest to the lower chest.Each one has a conflicting personality from the brother who he is harnessed to. Kirk is the aggressive and violent, and Wayne [...]


    12. Karin Slaughter's "Thorn in my Side" is about conjoined twins, one good, one not so much. The author did an excellent job of tuning into things that two people sharing one body might be thinking, like resentment issues, bodily functions, what it would be like to be free of the other. The problem I had with this story is that Wayne and Kirk (Or at least one of them) are held accountable for an awful crime, but though some of their history and thoughts are shown, things could have been shown in mo [...]


    13. Short stand-alone ebook, very different to her usual series, but just as dark, although with a black-comedy edge. Wayne and Kirk are twins, one is shy and thoughtful, the other confident and brash; they go out to a club and Kirk picks up a prostitute, then loses him temper I liked it but was not expecting the suddenness of the ending - that's the problem with ebooks - you think you're half way through then realise it's over and the rest is a preview of some other book, always annoying. It's an u [...]


    14. This has to be the weirdest story I've ever read. Insane. Karin Slaughter is my favorite Romance/Suspense authorI love her Grant County & Will Trent series. I picked Thorn in My Side up simply because it was written by her. I guess I expected something similar to her other books . . . but I don't have words for this story. There is no way to talk about it without giving away the big secret that is at the core of the entire story so I won't even try. It's weird. It's insane. It's crazy. I was [...]


    15. So this is twice now in a single month that I've stumbled across a story in which conjoined twins are forced to go to trial--with one half of the "twinship" being innocent and the other guilty. I don't know whether Karin Slaughter was purposefully riffing on Mark Twain's THOSE INCREDIBLE TWINS, but it certainly seems that way. And, rest assured, if Mark Twain can't make that plot device work, then Karin Slaughter doesn't stand a chance. THORN IN MY SIDE winds up being an utter train wreck, horri [...]


    16. Okay, so Karin Slaughter is entitled to have an off day here and there.I didn't know where this novella was going, but it should have gone in the trash bin. Way too weird for me, but maybe Ms. Slaughter had to get this out of her system!Very strange story - thought it was going somewhere at first. Would I recommend it to anyone? Meh, only if there is absolutely nothing else to read!Thank goodness I only paid $0.99 for it and even that hurts now.


    17. The story about two conjoined twins with two different personalities, is morbidly actually quite funny. Especially when one has committed a crime, and the other is an 'innocent bystander'. Granted, this book is probably not for everyone, and borders on being a horror. I however, expect nothing less from Karin Slaughter.


    18. This wasn't really my cup of tea.What happens with conjoined twins when one lives a wilder life than the other?Actually I kind of saw the end coming. (view spoiler)[ If you're going to commit a crime make sure that you are not going to be confined in the place where the victim has a big bad brother! (hide spoiler)]


    19. I've read several Karin Slaughter books and like her writing style and the Grant County series. This was a complete disappointment. Short stories are not generally up my alley so that should have been the first clue but this had no redeeming features. I don't think I'm giving anything away when I say that the ending was probably supposed to be quite clever but was really only crude.


    20. I'm at a loss for words (almost). Karin Slaughter is one of my favorite authors. Now having said that, if this had been the very first book I'd read of hers, I never would've picked up another. This was just too weird for me. Very disappointed!


    21. This is one of the most unusual short stories I have ever read but also one of the best. This goes into the stages of being a horror as it is deeply disturbing in parts. I loved this another excellent offering from Karin Slaughter.



    22. This is by far my favorite Slaughter book. It is however a short story. Simply put , Siamese twins, one is good and one is bad. It's true a stroke of brilliance





    23. This is the weirdest and most surprising Slaughter book I've read so far, possibly any book I've read so far.I love a good karin Slaughter book and if I had my way she'd be churning out at least one a year if not more, purely to keep me entertained however the wait is always worth it when a new book is released.I started reading this book as a fill in after reading a long and intense book and really enjoyed it, in a twisted sort of way. The characters are strange and thought it was very clever t [...]
