Vanishing Girls

Leave a comment

I usually like thrillers but this one was not my favorite ever. Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver, to me, was a little too predictable. It didn’t take me long to figure out the wrench that’s thrown in at the end. Don’t worry – I won’t spoil it for you. There were also two kind of disjointed story lines and the title of the book doesn’t exactly fit. I mean, there is a little girl who is missing, but ‘vanishing’ feels like a very different verb to me.

Nick and Dara are sisters who grow apart and Nick is trying to fix things. The second story line is about a little girl who goes missing from a neighboring town. The two are kind of related but not in a way that I thought was intriguing enough. It felt kind of forced. I did finish the book – it wasn’t that bad – but it was just ok. I wouldn’t put it at the top of your reading list unless you just really like psychological thrillers. It is also a pretty quick read. I’m interested in hearing what other people thought so if you read it please comment!
