4,0 sur 5 étoilesGreat book!
Commenté au Canada le 26 septembre 2020
I really enjoyed this one. The mystery follows a group of women who were a clicky group of middleschoolers and having their past catch up with them. A heavy subject that was handled very well and kept my attention right up until the very end. And with my guess... I was wrong :D
I need to say that Avery Bishop is a master at writing suspense...I was blown away how phenomenal this book was. The entire cast of characters in Girl Gone Mad are well developed and the story-line was thoroughly and intricately planned out. The twists and turns were shocking and unexpected—Loved that. The pacing is spot on...trust me when I say it’s unputdownable.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a well-written psychological thriller. Girl Gone Mad is as much about hard-earned redemption and self-awareness as it is about a mystery needing to be solved. And even if you guess the ending - and thus, by the nature of this story, the beginning - I think the plot’s arc of resilience and self-reconciliation still keep the story fresh and inspiring, and ward off any disappointment that would be felt with just a basic whodunit.
This Novel is about Emily Bennett who works as a Therapist, helping children deal with there troubled pasts. Emily has her own struggles with her past that she tries to forget.
In middle school, Emily was part of the Harpies a clique of six popular girls who liked causing trouble and bullying others. But there bullying got out of control with the new girl Grace. The girls took a blood oath to never tell anyone what they did to Grace Farmer.
Now, fourteen years have passed, karma has caught up to the girls when one of the Harpie's has committed suicide. But when a second Harpie is discovered, also from suicide, everything is starting to look very suspicious. Then Emily starts seeing a woman who looks a lot like Grace Farmer in the shadows, she’s forced to wonder: Is Grace back and wanting revenge Or is Emily going mad. Will more Harpy's died? Is Grace really back? Will revenge be served. You just gotta read to find it.
Wow, this book was soo good. It gave me the vibe of Pretty little liars meets Mean girls meets Gossip girl but like 100% Upgraded and much much darker. The story plot was soo good very dark and a heavy subject. I couldn't stop reading, I was addicted. I loved that things were not predictable in this book. I loved how this book was dark and kept me wondering if Grace was really back. I will give you a warning they are lots of talk of bullying so be warned it can be a trigger for some people it is pretty heavy.
I would like to say thank you to Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing for giving me the chance to read and review this book. #GirlGoneMad #NetGalley
I finished this book in two days, it was thought provoking how mean these girls were. It has a few twists, that kept me guessing right up to the end...and then someone gets revenge. But not what I thought was going to happen. I didn’t see the ending coming. I have read this author as Robert Swartwood, and have been very entertained with his novels, and his style of writing is amazing. I loved this book, but it’s hard to read in some parts as I have a grandaughter in that age group and would hate for her to experience anything even close to this. I will definitely keep reading from this author!
I’ve read many of the reviews that gave 1. And I don’t get most of them - why should a book be necessarily be a feel-good one? Or why should it necessarily use a language we are comfortable with? No, these are not the reasons why this novel is, for me, simply unworthy of reading. Its plot is outlandish, and the author seems to have very little understanding of how a psychiatrist/therapist should work. There is also the major, major issue of the author wanting us to empathise with somebody who was a violent bully in high School. Also, I’m sorry, but it’s very rare that one bounces back from doing and saying certain things to grow into a caring and “normal” adult - instead, most of these women managed to somehow redeem themselves. It is just not believable: the things they did were monstrous. But no, we are asked to accept instead degrees of culpability and also condemn the originally bullied girl for seeking revenge (after the group rape and kidnap...not enough to go mad?) Unbelievable book, sends all sorts of wrong messages.
4,0 sur 5 étoilesGood characterisation, weak ending
Commenté au Royaume-Uni le 9 janvier 2021
The characterisation in this novel was extraordinarily good. Teenage girls can be vicious and heartless, and the author took this and ran with it in a way that was realistic and somewhat terrifying. It lent the feeling that it could have been your own daughter being so cruel, and you wouldn't believe it. Unfortunately, the author let himself (herself?) down towards the end. Despite there being a rather good twist, and an unexpected finale, it wasn't handled as well as the rest of the novel. As the plot reached its climax, the way the main character discovered the full truth was a cop out. I was left feeling vaguely disappointed that the author hadn't managed to maintain the tension right to the end. Finally, the title seems to be a sales ruse rather than have any bearing on the story. If you type Gone Girl into the search engine, you also get this book.
Well I don’t know where to start with this one . I gave it three stars for the story , in places I had to keep on reading then one or two times I just cringed and wanted to put it down . There is a few repeated paragraphs so I skipped them .
5,0 sur 5 étoilesA great thriller that keeps you hooked.
Commenté au Royaume-Uni le 23 novembre 2020
Great book! Have read all the author's previous books (under the real name), and have never been disappointed. Hooked from page one, and could hardly put it down. Brilliantly written, keeps you guessing, and has a great twist. Would definitely recommend for any fans of thrillers. You will not be disappointed.
