23 Sep Final Girls Review
If you are a fan of psychological suspense, give Final Girls by Riley Sager a try. The lone survivor of a massacre, Quincy Carpenter gains notoriety despite her inability to remember the events of that night. Labeled a “final girl” by the press, in reference to the last woman standing at the end of a horror film, Quincy finds herself back in the spotlight when another of the infamous final girls is murdered. The twists will keep you guessing until the very end in this thriller with horror undertones.
Final Girls is receiving good reviews and being compared to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and Paula Hawkin’s The Girl on the Train. My two cents? I think Flynn’s Dark Places is a better comparison. Riley Sager is the pen name of an author previously published under another name. Which author? You’re guess is as good as mine. Either way, I predict a movie adaptation coming soon!
