Thank you to Netgalley and Grayson Media Associates for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
The premise had a lot of promise and potential, but somehow read a bit predictable at times and a bit drawn out. I couldn't relate as much as I wanted to Faith, so I wasn't able to give my full attention to the story. Which was a huge let down to me as I was truly hoping for so much more from this book. Not to say it was wholly bad, it may be good for others, but it just wasn't for me like I wanted or expected.
Did not finish. I wanted to like this book but the writing style just was not compatible with my taste.
I could not get into this book, sorry. Trying to clean up my netgalley. Didn’t realize that I was forgetting to leave reviews on netgalley itself, My apologies.
Thank you for the opportunities to read this book. I have attempted it on a number of occasions but unfortunately I haven’t been able to get into it.
This story will take you on a furious ride with so many twists and turns that you will never know which direction you were going. This is a super thriller story, you might want the lights on as you read it. The world and characters set the scene for the book fantastically.
Thank you Netgalley and Greyson Media for my free copy of The Girl Who Lived!
This was a book that had basically no hype on bookstagram, so I was a little nervous that it would end up being a dud. Luckily those worries were unfounded because The Girl Who Lived was an heart pounding thrill ride from beginning to end!
This book was like watching an edge-of-your-seat movie! Greyson tells a story with just the right amount of description and imagination that the reader can "see" the action without getting too wrapped up in petty details. This tale of a young girl whose life is turned upside down in one tragic night keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Literally the very end. Everyone become a suspect when Faith's release from the psych hospital sets a maddening series of events that ends in lies, deception, and, of course, murder! A must read for any fan of psychological thrillers.
I am sorry for not reviewing fully but I don’t have the time to read this anymore. I believe that it wouldn't benefit you as a publisher or your book if I only skimmed it and wrote a rushed review. Again, I am sorry for not fully reviewing!
THE GIRL WHO LIVED is my kind of book. This is a book about a final girl and you all know I love me a final girl. I could say so many things in praise of this book but I will just tell you this book blew me away. You need to read it!
An average mystery with a disappointing ending. Reading this was a little bit of a chore. I would not recommend it.
I didn't know what to expect from this book at first but, the book was very good kept me interested and turning pages till the end!!! loved it!!
This was an enjoyable read with many twists and turns. The protagonist was relatably flawed and readers will be rooting for her during her search for the truth. Thanks for the copy to review!
Can we say amazing? It was a thrill, page turning ride from beginning to end. At many points, I found myself actually giggling over the author’s sheer wittiness. I know, right? Giggling in a thriller - unheard of! But yes, it delivers in all realms - it tickles many fancies at least for this bibliophile! 5 stars for The Girl Who Lived
Thank you @prhinternational for sending me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review. Loved this, please catch my review over at www.thebooknookae.com
Faith survived the murders that took her father, sister, and best friend. She has been dealing with survivor's guilt with alcohol and anger and an obsessive belief that her father did NOT murder those women and kill himself. No one believes her.
This is an intriguing story with so many twists and turns that the reader begins to suspect everyone! That's a good thing since that means surprises on every page, but that also becomes tedious when everyone turns out to be a suspect. I admit I could not put this down (especially the last 50+ pages), but I also became a bit frustrated that I couldn't count on any of the "good" characters to be as good as they seemed. Plus, I actually figured out the real culprit pretty early on. SIGH!
All in all, though, an entertaining and engaging thriller with just enough tension to make me think this would be a good suspense movie.
A twisted mystery set in a small town with a lot of self-destructive, addicted people. Faith's head wasn't a very happy place to spend time in, and the resolution was a bit too neat.
Really loved this book. I had never read a book by Christopher Greyson before, but when I read the description for this one, I knew I had to check it out. The beginning didn't really grab my attention like I thought it would, but I was interested enough to keep going and see how it turned out. The twists and turns started coming fast, and before I knew it I was completely sucked in. By the end of it, I was gripping my Kindle so hard my knuckles were white, and I couldn't wait to see the end. I love thrillers, but usually I can guess what happens by the end. With The Girl Who Lived, however, I had no idea. Just when i thought i had it figured out, the author would throw a wrench in things and I'd be back to square one. This author has definitely made my list of authors to read from now on!
I received a free copy via NetGalley for a true and honest book.
The Girl Who Lived by Christopher Greyson is about Faith Winters who was released from the psychiatric hospital and yanked back to the last spot on earth she wants to be—her hometown where she was the sole survivor of a murder of four people. Ever since the murder no one believes her story. The cops thought the trauma made her unstable and her therapists believes she might suicidal. She goes spiralling back into alcoholism and she decides that since no one is going to help her she will take it on her own. Finding no solace at the bottom of a bottle, Faith decides to track down her sister’s killer—and then discovers that she’s the one being hunted.
This the type of book that you just want to know what happens next. Overall, an enjoyable read.
