Because You will never, EVER forget
WOW this book! It’s wicked graphic, explicit, disturbing, chilling, unnerving, and devastating. What the blurb says is totally true: You will never, ever forget.
4.6 VERY disturbing stars
About the book
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 lucky 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 she 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.
I have read many disturbing books but nothing like this one. I will never forget this book. I would not recommend this book for readers under sixteen. Parents should read it first before allowing their kids to read it. Having said that… This is definitely a page turner.
This is the story of Alice, a 15-year-old girl who spent her last five years captive, controlled and abused in any possible way by a very sadistic twisted pedophile, Ray. Her life with him is so dehumanizing that she only hopes for death. As the title suggest, Alice has been reduced to the empty shell, a living dead person.
Still with me? Wow!
Well… I’m not surprised. Stories like this can trapped you… Like Ray trapped Alice. As if it wasn’t already enough, Ray orders Alice to find a new girl for him, taken the already disturbing story to new unimaginable levels.
You cannot help but relate to Alice, suffer with her and therefore you cannot stop reading, holding your breath, all the way to the unbelievable but unavoidable, heartbreaking end. The book is written from Alice’s POV so the writing is purposely disjunctive and primitive exactly the way I would think if I were in Alice’s situation.
Just writing this review gets me unsettled. When you read it you get that unshakable feeling of despair because you know this can happen and have in fact happened in real life, like the true story of Jaycee Dugard: “A Stolen Life: a memoir
I doubt I ever read “Living Dead Girl” again but I don’t regret reading it. This book is meant to be read. Before you do, read more reviews if you want but please know that nothing, nothing, would really prepare you for this.
You have been warned!
And with this book my dear fantastic beasts, we take a break from disturbing “love stories” to step into the other side of the doorway, where the otherworldly awaits!
Thank you for visiting!
