Micro Mention "The Good Girl"

Mary Kubica

The Good Girl” by Mary Kubica is one of those psychological thrillers that, while it can be uncomfortable at times, once you start, you need to know how it turns out.

For me, no matter how you frame a story that involves a kind of Stockholm syndrome as a central element, I'm creeped out by that story. So if the goal is to get me to emotionally bond with the hostage-taker like the victim, to vicariously live out that experience, that effect has never worked on me yet. Without spoiling too much here, to be frank, it didn't work on me in this either, even after the final big reveal.
