I love good books as others out there do, as well. It is a shame we are subject to false reviews and enticed to spend out time and money on such worthless reads.
I am a huge fan of the Jack Stratton Series, by Christopher Greyson, so I was excited to receive The Girl Who Lived. I like mystery, suspense, thrillers, and psychological thrillers in general. This book definitely fits into those categories.
Although the writing style is Christopher Greyson it is a departure from the Jack Stratton Series. The Girl Who Lived is a bit darker, it deals with survivors guilt and addictions that manifest themselves after a horrendous crime and the aftermath. The main character, Faith, feels she is a broken person. She is alive, but not living. I think anyone reading this book that can relate to her anxiety, despair, and emptiness will appreciate her struggle. But you don't need to be a survivor to get wrapped up in the suspense.
I was totally surprised by the ending. I didn't see it coming. But all of the puzzle pieces start to fall into place as you look back.
I thought the first two chapters were a bit slow, but you really want to hang in there. I think those first few chapters explain where Faith is and why. Then the story starts picking up... and then I could not put down the book. I was reading from about 12:30am to 6:30am. I was going to read just until I fell asleep. But it is morning, my eyes are dry and bloodshot and it is time to feed the dog breakfast.
It was all taken. Everything she had. How can someone begin to pick up the pieces? This novel proves there is only one way... revenge.
Faith was willing and wanting to give her life to put a hault to her pain. She was so fragile. Never have I seen a more marvelous transition in a character. Faith transforms from delicate to durable so quickly you contemplate rereading the second portion of the book.
The spiraling of events will leave you crying, hoping, and petrified. I felt an immense amount of compassion and remorse for our protagonist. I could not set this book down!
No one can be trusted. Hell, some of them might not even truly exist. Faith finds comfort in very few people and then learns they cannot be trusted either. She is exhausted with the constant internal struggle; deciding whether or not to live. If she didn't live, she wouldn't find the putrid man that stole her innocence, her childhood, and essentially, her entire life. We learn the true meaning of coward here.
A huge thumbs up to Christopher Greyson. I thought this was immaculately written and beautifully finished. The ending is spectacular and non predictable. It has been a long time since i enjoyed reading something so much and I will continue to sing its praises until everyone I know reads it.

Initially the character of Faith was quite irritating but as the story developed she became more plausible and believable. The plot was sometimes predictable, the name of one phsychopath a big giveaway but on the whole an enjoyable read.
