Aloha my lovely followers! I’m back with the second Stephen King book that I read in a weekend, this time I’m reviewing The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.
Overall rating – 4 out of 5 stars.
I read this book so fast, I was literally obsessed with it! Following a young girl goes off the trail whilst hiking with her family aka her Mom and brother (bcos she needs a wee, TBH I can relate to that) and can’t find her way back to the trail afterwards.
A big fear of mine is getting lost and I felt like we were in the woods with Trisha as she was trying to find civilisation again, or even someone who could help her escape the hell she was in.
I’m not a huge baseball fan, so I didn’t really like the way the chapters were headed, and I did find it a bit cringey that she was imagining her sporting hero as she was trying to find her way out of the woods – concentrate kid!! But the storyline itself terrified me, mostly because it played on a big fear of mine.
I had goosebumps at the end of the book when she was found. A true rollercoaster of a read.
