Book Review “The Final Girls Support Group” by Grady Hendrix

Star Rating : 3 stars

What can I say about The Final Girls Support Group? I found it quite hard going and struggled with the first half of the book. I found the characters quite confusing and they melded together creating confusion between the characters and it took me quite a while to work out which character was which.

The premise of the book, which is in the Horror Genre concentrates on the final girls who have all survived horrific attacks and in horror movie style hit the headlines and then disappeared into nowhere once interest in them dies down. They form a Final Girls support group that has kept going over 20 years with a therapist who seemingly helps them through their issues.

After my confusion in the first half of the book the second half does pick up the pace and concentrates on Lynnette Tarkington and her quest to save the final girls who are being targeted all over again. However I found some of the horrific attacks she then endures quite unbelievable and instead of being drawn into this slasher movie novel I found myself being totally unconvinced by the events.

The book is well written and I’m more than sure if the slasher movie in book form is your go to genre then this will probably satisfy you, especially if Grady Hendrix is an author you have read before, you will enjoy this book. It just wasn’t for me, hence 3 stars.
