Final Girls Synopsis: Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie–scale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to—a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls. Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout’s knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them, and, with that, one another. Despite the media’s attempts, they never meet….longer synopsis on Goodreads
I enjoyed this book for the most parts. I found the first 100 pages a bit slow, but not boring. The story took its time to build up to the latter half of the book. I also had no idea what direction the story would go. Is it a thriller or is the story just about what happened to the three girls, Quincy, Sam and Lisa, and their life after they became the Final Girls? I was very curious about what would happen later in the story, so I kept on reading.
Halfway through the book I started really liking it. It was very intense and nerve wracking, and the book totally sucked me in. I couldn’t put it down, and I was eager to know what would happen at the end.
Even though the start was a bit slow, the book wasn’t bad and I really liked the ending. All in all I liked this book, and I gave it 3.5 stars.
I also want to mention that the whole premise with the Final Girls was very interesting. I have never heard someone use The Final Girls before, I’m not sure if this is something the author has made up or is something that is used in the real world.
I received this copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Netgalley, Penguin Random House UK, Ebury Publishing & Riley Sager for giving me a copy of this book.
