'Men don't have to pay attention the way we do. Men die because they make mistakes. Women? We die because we're female.'
This is only the second book by Hendrix that I've read so far. The Southern Book Club's Guide To Slaying Vampires was one of my favourite reads of 2022. It made me tense, emotional, and instantly attached to all of the characters, especially Patricia. Naturally, I had to read more of Hendrix's work; this title had been sitting on my TBR pile for ages. I was a bit worried that since I loved Slaying Vampires so much, I would have unrealistic expectations for the rest of his work. There have been authors whom I love some of their books, yet can't stand others. Taylor Jenkins Reid comes first to mind. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a masterpiece, but I had to DNF Daisy Jones & The Six. I was a bit apprehensive that I was going to be disappointed.
Thankfully, this book made for an awesome page-turner! I was already hooked on the story from the first few pages and deeply intrigued by the different characters. I wanted to know more about them - each character could very easily have their own spin-off book and I would pick that up in a heartbeat. What was fun about this book is that it encouraged me to come up with a variety of different theories and ideas about the plot - I had a hunch but Hendrix for sure outsmarted me. The overall concept of this book is super original and fun. It's made me super excited to read more of Hendrix's work in the future.
Thriller fans should definitely add The Final Girls Support Group to their TBRs. There are twists, suspense, and thoughtfully-written characters. I would 100% recommend this title if you find yourself in a reading slump. It's very much character, as well as plot-driven. However, The Southern Book Club's Guide To Slaying Vampires remains my favourite of Hendrix's work so far.
When the audience leaves and the cop cars fade away, what happens to the final girl? She's the one who emerged victorious. She outran the killer. She survived.
