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.

    Honestly one of the best books 8 I had read in a really long time, it has so many twists and turns I was surprised every step of the way.
  • Good plot, bad writing

    I thought the plot for this story was thrilling and twisted, but difficult to enjoy because the writing was so poor. None of the conversations sounded like they were natural and it was generally badly written. Still worth the read for a chilling plot and good mystery.

    I LOVED this book! Sooo many twists and turns. I'd think I had the plot figured out and...BAM! plot twist to end all plot twists! So very well-written and just plain old riveting. This is in my top ten reads for 2018, for sure!
  • Excellent psychological thriller

    So much potential that wanted to climax and failed. No development of the important enlightenments.

    Perfect book for fall and Halloween time, I had a hard time reading it at night- it got scary at some points! Riley Sager does a great job of writing suspense and building up to a big climax. I thought the end petered out a bit and tried too hard to have a twist, which ended up being a bit unbelievable. But for a juicy, entertaining read I thought that this book hit the spot. I recommended it to my friends and would recommend to you! If you're looking for a page turner and not the next Pulitzer, this book is for you.
