    Disappointing

    Meh. I am so incredibly disappointed by the fact that I didn't really care for this book. Based on the description, I was so sure that I would fall in love with this book. I do think that my opinion will be in the minority with this book. Based on all of the reviews that I have seen so far, most people are really enjoying this book and I predict that it will be very popular. I didn't hate this book but I didn't really like it either. This was one of those books that I really didn't connect with any of the characters and by the time the big twists started happening, I just didn't care what happened. The book was a bit different than I expected. Since the description mentions a horror movie-scale massacre, I expected the book to be pretty gruesome. I wanted gruesome because I am weird like that. There are a few more bloody scenes but not like I had thought it would be. This book is told from Quincy's point of view. Quincy is a Final Girl which means she was the only survivor from a nightmare that killed her friends. She is deeply affected by that night years later. I just never liked Quincy. Not at all. Since the whole book is told from her point of view, it was really hard to enjoy the story. Most of the book is really about what is going on in the present time period with Quincy and Sam, another Final Girl. I am not going to be recommending this book but I do think that a lot of readers will like it a lot more than I did. There were a few twists that I wouldn't have ever been able to guess and the premise was pretty interesting. This is the first book by Riley Sager that I have read and I would be open to trying his work again in the future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Dutton via First to Read.

    Two stories are told. Only one is compelling.

    Two stories are told in Final Girls. The night of Pine Cottage, the massacre Quincy lived through, and the life Quincy lives now, ten years later. The chapters typically tend to alternate one after each other, with a few exceptions. I found myself really loving the Pine Cottage story but not being interested in Quincy’s current story. The story of Pine Cottage was full of mystery because Quincy had a block in her memory that didn’t allow her to remember what had happened that night. We had no idea what was going to happen and neither did Quincy. We were living that night with her as her memories returned. It was mysterious, thrilling, and kept me on the edge of my seat. Those chapters were definitely my favorite. The story of current day Quincy is also full of mystery, but full of one that just fell flat. The events were extremely formulaic in the first 150 pages. I felt like I was reading the same chapter over and over and over. The mystery was somehow both the main focus but it also … wasn’t. It was constructed incredibly strangely. I feel like we spent more time on her relationship with Sam, Jeff, Coop, and Jonah than we did on the actual mystery. There were a few moments that should have held suspense but I just rolled my eyes at. The climax of the book was surprising to me, but it wasn’t something I felt very strongly about either way. I really didn’t enjoy any of the characters, which may have played a very strong role in why I didn’t enjoy the current day story because it was very character driven. There was character development for a few characters smushed together at the end of the book and I’m not sure how the author intended me to feel but I felt very underwhelmed. Overall, Final Girls wasn’t for me. I believe I may have expected something closer to the Pine Cottage chapters or a story of a killer back on the loose, but this wasn’t that.

    Great book

    So suspenseful and provides great clues to the ending, but I was still surprised by who did it!!! Highly recommend if you like trillers!
