[ARC] Final Girls by Riley Sager


Leggi questo articolo in italiano

Quincy has survived her own horror story: during a weekend with her friends in a cottage in the wood, a psychopath escaped a detention center and killer all her friends.

This is why for the paper Quincy is one of the final girls, so the only survivors of a group from a serial killer. The other two girls are Lisa and Samantha and both of them survived a horrific event.

Quincy has built again her life: now she is a food blogger, she has a fiance, the only thing is that she does not remember anything from the night of the murders. This apparent quiet will abruptly change with the news of Lisa’s suicide and with the meeting with Sam, disappeared from the public scene a few years before.

Final girls is a likable thriller, with some unforeseen change of event and with more foreseeable ones. The narration is engaging till the meeting between Quincy and Sam, then a story mostly unrelated with the main narrative thread begins about their night adventures; this was the most boring part in my opinion (because it moves the focus from the thriller part to something else). I think boring also the bakery moments, it ok that the main character has a new life, but there is too much food and muffins and decorations nowadays on internet and television.

Overall the book is good at the beginning and at the ending, too bad for the central part that could have been exploited better.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
