Read The Girls

Zanne a mesmerizing older girl and is drawn into the circle of a soon to be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader Hidden in the hills their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down but to Evie it is exotic thrilling charged a place where she feels desperate to be a I’m going to admit that this book was way deeper and intellectual than I initially expected it to be For some reason I was thinking this would be a thriller or mystery of sorts and I guess it was in some aspects but it was so much than that and I’m really glad I was wrong about this one I had a difficult time believing this was a debut novel as it was so well written; I can see why Random House has pegged this as one of their top books of Summer 2016 I’ll address it right off the bat; I’ve read multiple reviews stating they DNF because of there the top prose with which this was written I get it; it put me off a bit in the beginning as well but I’m glad I stuck with it as that tapered off mostly once I got about 15 20% into the book “There are those survivors of disasters whose accounts never begin with the tornado warning or the captain announcing engine failure but always much earlier in the timeline an insistence that they noticed a strange uality to the sunlight that morning or excessive static in their sheets A meaningless fight with a boyfriend As if the presentiment of catastrophe wove itself into everything that came before Did I miss some sign Some internal twinge The bees glittering and crawling in the crate of tomatoes An unusual lack of cars on the road The uestion I remember Donna asking me in the bus casually almost as an afterthought “You ever hear anything about Russell””This is one of those books that the summary basically tells you the whole synopsis in a nutshell; there really aren’t any surprises here just the building knot in your stomach as you slowly approach the grotesue ending I read a lot of books namely psychological suspensethriller so I come across a good bit of violence and graphic content The interesting thing about this book is how overall it isn’t extremely graphic in the sense of descriptions of violence; a good bit of this is left to your imagination and THAT is what was so disturbing to meThere were a a few sections that read a bit slow and that is why I didn’t give this the full 5 STARS; the pacing is very steady and not to be rushed I would not recommend this as a uick light read it is about a violent murder involving members of a dangerous cult think Charles Manson meets Dangerous Girls but it was a very interesting interpretation of the 1960’s and what all was going on in this time period I think I would have liked a little of Russell’s character but I understand why she left him as mysterious and vague even following the conclusion There isn’t a ton of violence throughout the book but the ending is a bit disturbing as it does involve a scene not fully described with a child There also is uite a bit of sexual content mainly Evie is “discovering herself” but a few scenes involving relationships on and off the compound I felt it fair to include this as it may sway some reader’s decision to pick this book upI’m glad I picked this one up; I haven’t read anything in the realm of historical fiction in a hot second and it was satisfying to travel back to a time that my parents were a part of before I was even a blip on their radar While a heavy read in all aspects a worthwhile readI received my copy via NetGalley from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review
