The following is an honest review of The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of The Final Girl Support Group
The Final Girl Support Group is about just that: a support group for final girls. Final Girls are made up of girls who survived a killer but will live each day forever haunted by them. The girls have been attending a support group with the same therapist for the entire time they’ve been together. Although each of the girls have learned to cope with their traumas in their own way, some still live in fear more than others. Despite the fame their tragedies brought them, inspiring horror films, books, and obsessed fans, Lynette lives her life as though she is being hunted. When one of the final girls misses a support group meeting, Lynette’s worst nightmare comes to life. Someone is hunting the final girls.
Review of The Final Girl Support Group
I really like the concept of this book. I was hesitant to pick it up because it is categorized as a “horror.” After reading it, in my opinion, it is a thriller. Although there are definitely talk of the murders and attacks each of these girls encountered, I didn’t find it to be scary. I enjoyed the snippets throughout the book describing the films the final girls inspired and other little “sound bites” about them. Although I continued to enjoy the concept of this book, the writing in my opinion was just okay. I would say if you’re interested in this book but are intimidated by the cover or the fact that it’s a “horror” book, don’t be. If you are a pretty avid mystery/murder/suspense reader I don’t think this book will be anything shocking in the “scare” factor.”
I gave this book 3.5/5 stars on Goodreads.
Suggested Age Rating for The Final Girl Support Group
The Final Girl Support Group is “adult” and I agree. This book has semi-heavy language, gore, murder, and sexual content. It may be triggering for those who have suffered abuse. This book is suitable for those 18+.
