THE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER * WINNER OF THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL THRILLER WRITERS AWARD FOR BEST HARDCOVER NOVEL "The first great thriller of 2017 is here: Final Girls, by Riley Sager. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll like this."--Stephen King   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.   Now, Quincy is doing well--maybe even great, thanks to her Xanax prescription. She has a caring almost-fiancé, Jeff; a popular baking blog; a beautiful apartment; and a therapeutic presence in Coop, the police officer who saved her life all those years ago. Her memory won't even allow her to recall the events of that night; the past is in the past.   That is until Lisa, the first Final Girl, is found dead in her bathtub, wrists slit; and Sam, the second Final Girl, appears on Quincy's doorstep. Blowing through Quincy's life like a whirlwind, Sam seems intent on making Quincy relive the past, with increasingly dire consequences, all of which makes Quincy question why Sam is really seeking her out. And when new details about Lisa's death come to light, Quincy's life becomes a race against time as she tries to unravel Sam's truths from her lies, evade the police and hungry reporters, and, most crucially, remember what really happened at Pine Cottage, before what was started ten years ago is finished.… (més)

A Novel Massacre

This should have been a diverting reading thrill ride: slasher movie meets survivor syndrome meets serial killer meets crazy girls and crazier guys behaving stupidly meets baking blog. Yes, baking blog.

Quincy Carpenter lone survivor of the horrific Pine Cottage slaughter reassembles her life and keeps her demons at bay by starting and operating a successful baking blog. She has a lawyer boyfriend who she will probably marry, a nice apartment shared with him in New York City, and a caring cop, Coop, who rescued her and looks over her from afar and helping over rough patches. “Final Girls” comes from the moniker tagged to the last girl standing in a slasher movie. Here, Quincy shares the title with two others who have survived their own massacres, Lisa and Sam. Quincy is on an even keel until well-adjusted counselor Lisa supposedly kills herself and rough, daring, and angry Sam turns up on Quincy’s doorstep. Then everything goes to hell in a handbasket, so to speak. Who is killing the Final Girls?

Sounds good until you find yourself bogged down in some silly psychological nonsense, some really awful dialogue, a too obvious denouement, and plenty of ham-handed descriptions beginning with the first sentences, which set the tone for the ground you are about to tread: “The forest had claws and teeth. All those rocks and thorns and branches bit at Quincy as she ran screaming through the woods.” But then you go on because, well, you are like the character in a murder or horror tale, the one that says to him- or herself, “Don’t open the door”; that you yell to, “Don’t open that door.” They always do, or else no story. We always do; we hope for the best.

Now this is just one opinion. Plenty of people seem to have enjoyed Final Girls and you may, as well. However, if you are looking for a new psychological thriller that is really well done, try Fiona Barton’s The Child. It packs a real emotional wallop. Or for something more literary and very, very clever, look at The Night Ocean, a fantasy mystery about H. P. Lovecraft. Or turn to a classic in the mystery-thriller-lunatic killer genre, John Fowles’ 1963 blockbuster The Collector. This one is truly brilliant.

This one wasn't for me. I probably would've DNFed it had I not been listening to it on a long car ride. It didn't really make a ton of sense to me. I did keep reading because I wanted to know what the twists were, but once I got there, I really didn't care for the ending at all. I may have set myself up for failure though by reading multiple final girl tropes back to back. Riley Sager seems to be a bit hit or miss with me but I didn't find anything really smart or really clever and it left me with way more questions than answers. I just felt like there were too many red herrings thrown in to be a red herring without really explaining why it was written other than to present a twist option and throw the reader off. Meh. It also tried to have a "strong" female protagonist but a lot of stuff in here just hit wrong for me. ( )

This novel takes many unexpected turns that definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. It's a bit slow at the beginning but the ending made up for it, for sure. This is definitely a book for horror film fans obsessed with final girls! I loved it. ( )

Ze worden de drie Final Girls genoemd, de enige overlevers van een seriemoordenaar. Sam, Lisa & Quincy zijn verbonden met elkaar door hun verleden dat sterk gelijkloopt. Alle drie konden ze uit ontsnappen aan een gestoorde gek die een groot aantal mensen in hun nabijheid wel kon doden. Enkel zij konden het navertellen. Tot het nieuws komt dat Lisa dood is. Zelfmoord. Quincy kan het maar niet geloven en haar wereld wordt al helemaal op zijn kop gezet als Sam plots voor haar neus staat. Sam die jarenlang verdwenen leek van de aardbol. Kan ze haar vertrouwen of….

De laatste meisjes heeft een mooie cover met het gebruik van het roze op het zwart en de drie streepjes, die verwijzen naar de drie overgebleven vrouwen. Ook de titel spreekt me aan en zeker de achterflap doet me al snakken om in het verhaal te duiken!

De laatste meisjes is het eerste boek van Riley Sager dat bij ons verscheen in 2017. Het is tevens ook het eerste boek dat ik van hem las. De korte inhoud is al meteen een echte ‘aantrekker’ om het boek te willen lezen. Drie vrouwen die elk een gruweldaad overleefd hebben en nu opnieuw belaagd worden door journalisten na de zelfmoord van één van hen. Je voelt al meteen dat het een spannend verhaal zal worden, dat af en toe wel eens wat haren overeind laat staan. Het verhaal leest zeer vlot en is opgedeeld in korte hoofdstukken van telkens maar enkele pagina’s. Enorm handig voor kort tussendoor even wat te ontspannen. Het verhaal sleepte me wel mee op Quincy’s tocht en de stukjes waar haar verhaal uit de doeken werd gedaan van wat ze zoveel jaren eerder meemaakte, vond ik persoonlijk de beste. Ik keek er altijd naar uit om meer te weten te komen over die bewuste avond om ik wist dat daar het antwoord ging liggen op alle vragen die ik mezelf stelde. De laatste meisjes is dus een echte aanrader als je van thrillers houdt, hoewel ik niet altijd op het puntje van mijn zetel werd gebracht. De laatste pagina’s waren wel echt spannend, maar het hele boek zelf kabbelt soms wat voort en bevat misschien soms wat overbodige stukjes. Maar ik heb zeker genoten van dit debuutboek van Riley Sager en ik ben zeker van zin om ook zijn andere vertaalde boeken te gaan lezen. Voor dit verhaal geef ik een mooie score van 4 sterren!
