Description

Two missing girls. Thirteen years apart.

Olivia Shaw has been missing since last Tuesday. She was last seen outside the entrance of her elementary school in Hunts Point wearing a white spring jacket, blue jeans, and pink boots.

I force myself to look at the face in the photo, into her slightly smudged features, and I can't bring myself to move. Olivia Shaw could be my mirror image, rewound to 13 years ago.

If you have any knowledge of Olivia Shaw's whereabouts or any relevant information, please contact...

I've spent a long time peering into the faces of girls on missing posters, wondering which one replaced me in that basement. But they were never quite the right age, with the right look, in the right circumstances. Until Olivia Shaw, missing for one week tomorrow.

Whoever stole me was never found. But since I was taken, there hasn't been another girl.

And now there is.

Commentaires

" Girl Last Seen hooked me so quickly I might have whiplash. This is a sharp, twisting, intense thriller, the heartbreaking and fast-paced story of a woman who bears the scars of a trip to hell and back but who refuses to be defeated. Don't miss this smashing debut!" (David Bell, best-selling author of Bring Her Home)
"Laurin creates a compelling, vulnerable central character." ( Publisher's Weekly)
"Debut novelist Nina Laurin has created a memorable character in complicated, flawed and endearing Laine Moreno. From the very first page, Girl Last Seen jettisons the reader into the life of a crime victim trying to outrun her past. Fast-paced and hard-edged, it is a heart-stopping thriller that had me guessing to the very end." (Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times best-selling author of The Weight of Silence and Not a Sound)

Rambling... still rambling...

The narrator is good but the writing is terrible! Endless, dramatic descriptions that lead nowhere and often have nothing to do with the story... not to mention she uses the same descriptions and metaphors repeatedly. The actual story took up about 3 chapters, the rest is just fluff. Could be a decent story if the writing wasn't so poor.

A Let Down

What did you like best about Girl Last Seen? What did you like least?

I had I hopes for this one, but it was a miss for me. The best part of this one is the pleasant sound of the narrator's voice, even though it does not match the voice of a pill-popping, damaged young adult. The story is unbelievable, the characters are poorly developed, and I found myself just wanting it to be over. It is simply the story of a missing girl, and the search for her.

What could Nina Laurin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

A little less predictability in the story would make the book better. This is listed as a psychological, "mess with your head' thriller, but it is not.

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't tell my favorite scene without including a spoiler.

Do you think Girl Last Seen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

NO. It is over. I don't know what else could be said.

Any additional comments?

I was expecting a psychological thriller such as The Stranger in my House, The Couple Next Door, The Wife Between Us, The Woman in the Window, etc... If you want something that leaves you wanting more, choose one of these.

Don’t do it

I read a few of the reviews that said this book started off slow but then got really good so that is why I decided to download it. It starts off so slow that at chapter 15 (almost halfway through the book) I had to stop listening to it. It wasn’t getting any better. the book was not enjoyable for me at all. The main character is not likable In fact none of them are.

Not Worth The Time or Credit

It was so slow to start off with, dragging on about nothing really then when it picked up, it was weird and confusing, not suspenseful and thrilling. The character interactions were not believable, and very unrealistic. To make matters worse, the end was not really shocking and overall lacking. I really just did not enjoy this book . Narration however, was not bad. Not favorite but not bad.

Didn’t make sense

I kept waiting for this book to get to “the good part,” and it just never happened. There are no gripping moments, and the whole book just felt very flat. The characters weren’t very interesting and the whole story was fairly predictable, except for the worst part of the book - the ending that didn’t make sense at all. It feels like the author just tacked it on at the end without bothering to go back and change the storyline to lead up to it.

*SPOILERS*

Why would Jacquelyn have had that whole scene where she pulled laney into her room and begged her to tell her everything she knew?

Why would Jacquelyn’s sister have accosted Laney in the way that she did if she knew the entire time?

How did Laney never recognize Tom’s voice during any of their many, MANY conversations, but then suddenly conveniently recognizes it when he’s attacking her?

None of it makes any sense. From Laney’s Mom being the one who had her kidnapped and nobody ever figuring that out, to Jacquelyn putting on this whole charade of her daughter being kidnapped for months just because she was afraid of Tom. Why wouldn’t she have just left with Olivia? Or told the police once Olivia was safe?

Maybe I’m just not sophisticated enough to get it or something, but it just didn’t impress me at all.

Had Potential

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The story behind the book was good, but poorly executed.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Girl Last Seen?

I would definitely add better transitions and backstory. There was a lot that was not explained and also unnecessary scenes.

Infuriating

Their isn't a single character in this novel that can be related to. The story is so poorly told and all over the place. The dialogue is primitive and the main character's thoughts and actions are so ridiculous that I wanted to reach through my headphones and hit her.
The only redeemable aspect of this book is that the narrator is actually pretty good, the story is just awful.

What?

What did you like best about Girl Last Seen? What did you like least?

I really was not thrilled with this book. It didn't seem very cohesive and many scenes made no sense. Motives for the disappearance of the girl were unclear.

When was it supposed to get good?

I knew who the kidnapper was from the moment he was introduced. There simply weren’t enough characters to keep you guessing. Also, every single character was one dimensional. You knew all about them all at once. I didn’t even like or sympathize with the main character very much and her back story has a lot to be sympathetic about. It’s super hard to believe that she could have fallen through the cracks THAT MUCH. She truly does EVERYTHING she possibly can to screw herself over and you get really tired of being let down by her. But I digress. It was pretty bad.
