Book Review: Living Dead Girl

Oh. My. Goddess.

There are really no words to describe this book. I started LIVING DEAD GIRL by Elizabeth Scott last night, and finished it today. I didn't want to put it down. My mouth was dry as I read this story, making it difficult to swallow. This is possibly the most intense book I've ever read. It was both wonderful and horrible at the same time. Wonderful because the writing was so real. And horrible because of the situation "Alice" was in.

I didn't cry while I was reading it, but after I put it down I was practically sobbing. I can't wait to read more by this author.


Synopsis:

Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.
Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.
Once upon a time, I didn't know how luck I was.

When Alice was ten, Ray took her away from her family, her friends -- her life. She learned to give up all power, to endure all pain. She waited for the nightmare to be over.


Now Alice is fifteen and Ray still has her, but he speaks more and more of her death. He does not know it is what he longs for. She does not know he has something more terrifying than death in mind for her.


This is Alice's story. It is one you have never heard, and one you will never, ever forget.

Whoa it sounds very intense. I don't know if I want to read something so dark. Books like that have a very real effect on me, you know?

Oh I came across this book a long time ago and I figured it would be too dark for me to handle so I passed it by. No mistake that it would be excellently written and have a great effect on me.

I read this a while ago and can't reread it. It's wonderful, but super intense.
