THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

VOTED GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD BEST HORROR NOVEL OF 2021

A Good Morning America Buzz Pick

“The horror master…puts his unique spin on slasher movie tropes.”-USA Today

A can't-miss summer read, selected by The New York Times, Oprah Daily, Time, USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer, CNN, LitHub, BookRiot, Bustle, Popsugar and the New York Public Library

In horror movies, the final girls are the ones left standing when the credits roll. They made it through the worst night of their lives…but what happens after?


Like his bestselling novel The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrix’s latest is a fast-paced, frightening, and wickedly humorous thriller. From chain saws to summer camp slayers, The Final Girl Support Group pays tribute to and slyly subverts our most popular horror films—movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream.

Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre. For more than a decade, she’s been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, working to put their lives back together. Then one woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears are realized—someone knows about the group and is determined to rip their lives apart again, piece by piece.
 
But the thing about final girls is that no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.

Thank yog ,

I liked it

Grady Hendrix is one of my favorite authors that I’ve found in the past year that I’ve been listening to audiobooks… Final Girls started off really slow and I feel like it spent a lot of time developing the characters without getting to the point. Once I was hooked I really enjoyed the uncertainty as the twists and turns made sure that I couldn’t predict the end. I was satisfied with the ending and when all was said and done, glad that I took the time for this book. It’s not my favorite Grady Hendrix story but for the $3.99 that it was on sale for, it was worth it.

Narrator is atrocious

Did not finish. I’m not picky about my audiobook narrator because I commute and don’t have anything else to do but this narrator was horrific. So hard to follow. Made what probably could’ve been a very enjoyable book a miserable experience.

Good Book/Mismatched Narrator

Adrienne King was the “final girl” in Friday the 13th, so she’s the obvious choice to narrate this book, right? However, King is in her sixties with a smoker’s voice narrating a character thirty years younger, and the effect is jarring. Much of it sounds growled, and she tends to punch the words like a pianist pounding on the keys. It would have been lovely to hear the narrator from Hendrix’s last book do this book. That being said, it’s an entertaining book, if a bit overly serious given the premise. Hendrix seems to be trying to make a statement about misogyny, but it doesn’t seem to extend too much further than the notion that it’s, you know, bad.
