Review: Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

3.5 out of 5 stars

When I was younger and still cared about petty things, I always wondered what pretty girls felt like on a daily basis. I thought of them as faeries or goddesses with magical powers who could get what they want on a whim or on a twirl of their delicate finger. I didn’t realize the dangers they suffer just because they’re pretty.

I have been hearing great things about Ms. Slaughter and as a recent thriller fan convert I knew I had to read her and I find her interesting although not as great as I expected. Pretty Girls is a gritty thriller that might be way too gritty though, it kind of came off a bit corny or sometimes really awful. It is thought provoking though and the alternate narrative modes are what made me persisted till the end because this one is quite long for a thriller.

I wanted to cover my eyes from the gory details but the writing seems to have the power to forcefully pry my fingers open so I could read these horrors that could and truly do happen to young, pretty girls because of these monsters who perversely think they could get away playing with the lives of these young girls. It’s honestly very sad but at the end of the story, I’m glad that somehow justice still prevailed.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
