    1. This book, like many others, is recommended for fans of Gone Girl, but I think if you gave it some different marketing and a younger protagonist, you could easily slot this in among the YA/NA romances. If this book hadn't been the only one I was carrying on a flight, I doubt I would have finished it. The sluggish pacing is more suited to quiet family dramas than thrillers, and yet the characters' lack of depth paired with trope after trope make it fail as a worthy contribution to that sub-genre [...]


    2. I was promised a story like Gone Girl. What I got was Gone Girl's annoying little sister. Predictable and weak. Also, can anyone say Stockholm Syndrome?


    3. This is a debut?!!? WHAT? We need more authors like this out here.This book is not at all what it seems. I was expecting a book like Gone Girl and what I got was a relative of it. If you liked Gone Girl, you will like The Good Girl. It had me racing through the pages until the very end, WHICH BLEWMYMIND! It didn't really hit me what was going on until the last few pages. I had to reread a couple of pages to get it, but it was enjoyable, not annoying where I just didn't get it. I had an idea of w [...]


    4. Dear publishing world, for the love of all that is holy, can we stop referring to any book with a scintilla of suspense in it as "the next Gone Girl"? Honestly, these books have very little in common (except for one or two unlikeable characters), so the comparison either sets up unfair expectations or might cause those who disliked the original book to pass this one by. And they shouldn't.Mia Dennett is the headstrong daughter of James, a powerful and ego-driven Chicago judge, and his English wi [...]


    5. The cover and title typography says “I’m smart and edgy! See that reverse ‘R’? It probably means something related to why the blonde chick wants you to keep quiet. Don’t you want to know why?” And you know I’m all over the smart and edgy with the hint of smart, edgy mindfuck.The blurb says “An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller” among other things and who cares if my computer is telling me ‘addictively’ isn’t a word? Fuck you, New Oxford American Dictiona [...]


    6. **** GoodReads Giveaway Winner ***The publishers of this book will tell you that The Good Girl is the next Gone Girl. It is not, don’t even bother. There are no fantastic plot twists because you pretty much know from the beginning what is going to happen. The clues are not so much cleverly placed as leadenly bombard the reader. This is not an intelligent read but an attack on the reader’s intelligence. The author relies on lazy literary and cultural stereotypes. In fact, this book was filled [...]


    7. Wow, I just finished this and am completely bowled over about this being a debut novel. Talk about non-stop suspense. Told from three different perspective, during the kidnapping, after the kidnapping when they are trying to piece together what happened and from the detective while he is hunting for the kidnappers. So hard to pull of a book like this off and make it believable, but at least for me the author did an amazing job. Revelations, secrets, some major dysfunction going on. A book where [...]


    8. I am ashamed to admit that I did read the whole thing. My crap meter went off early on, and I wish I could say it was wrong, but it wasn't. I got taken in by the pretty package, and a good review I am sure I read somewhere. Well, this is bad writing all over. Terrible motivations, has attraction replaced he's / she's crazy as the stupid motivator in movies? Supposed criminal choses not to kidnap woman for evil mastermind because, he's in love. Oh please! The moment things do began to be interest [...]


    9. A special thank you to MIRA and NetGalley for providing an ARC, in exchange for an honest review. A Killer Debut Novel! Mary Kubica’s THE GOOD GIRL will keep you entranced from the first page to the last—where nothing is, as it appears. A world of four desperate, and complex characters, with more in common than they may think. THE GOOD GIRL takes readers from the vibrant city of Chicago, to a remote rustic cabin in the forest during the cold winter of Minnesota—where two people learn to tr [...]


    10. I picked up a copy of The Good Girl as the author, Ms. Mary Kubica, is scheduled for a Q&A in one of my groups. I found this book to be an excellent debut novel and a highly enjoyable read.The Good Girl is an almost completely character-driven story; the main players are very well developed. If you are looking for a big dose of action and/or relentless suspense, this is not the book for you. The tale is about Mia, a prominent judge’s 25-year-old daughter, who is kidnapped in Chicago and e [...]


    11. We'd built a fire from nothing but wood.So says Good Girl character Colin Thatcher, bragging about his survival skills. I feel that the book can be summed up similarly: she'd written a book using nothing but words. That's all there is to it, words and words and more words, but very little else to recommend it to people who enjoy reading words. If you disagree with me and think that words are all it takes to write a novel, go read a phone book and then get back to me.I honestly feel torn about de [...]


    12. Mia is the 25 year old daughter of a Chicago judge. She is kidnapped, but the kidnapper changes his mind and doesn’t turn her over to the person that ordered the crime. Eventually, she is returned home but is in a total fog as to what has happened. The story is told by multiple narrators, and moves back and forth from before and after her return. The one person you never hear directly from is Mia herself, until the very end. It’s a character driven book, not big on action. It raises some int [...]


    13. Well. I'm not sure whether to give this book a 3 or 4 star rating, so we'll call it a 3.5. Short synopsis: Mia is kidnapped by Colin. Colin is supposed to turn her over to those he works for. Colin decides to keep her in remote cabin instead. We spend entire novel trying to put together the pieces of this story as it is told out of order.Things I liked: I enjoyed the story being told out of order and by 3 different POV. To me, this kept things fresh and moving quickly. The chapters were short wh [...]


    14. 2.7 Rating Jaw Dropping enthralling? No! Pulsates with Suspense? No! Heart-pounding mystery? No! 'FAIR' READ? Yes! I kept thinking if *Annie*, (kidnapped in the novel, "STILL MISSING"), and *Mia*, abducted in "The Good Girl", met for coffee, they'd become GREAT FRIENDS. sharing 'CABIN STORIES' together. haha! The writing style in "The Good Girl" --starts off engaging in the beginning-- then soon becomes annoying. Its no longer a novelty to see an author write a novel from three different points [...]


    15. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/It’s the next Gone Girl!!!!Trust me Amy, we ALL want to punch you two in the face at this point.Okay, so like errrrrrry other book that claimed it was going to be the “next Gone Girl” – this one wasn’t. However, momma likey the new Harlequin dark and seedy romance genre : )Since this was a mystery/thriller I won’t say much for fear that I’ll give too much away. The basic premise has been done a time or two before:Colin Thatcher is a gun-for- [...]


    16. I hated this novel. It was neither suspenseful nor a thriller. There is a completely predictable "twist" at the end, but good luck making it that far. I skimmed the last 75%. For a while I tried to figure out what was bothering me-the lack of character motivation that made sense? My inability to figure out whether or not there was actually a protagonist? The contrived plot? The not-very-subtle-actually racism pervading the novel (seriously, the author should probably not include a Somali charact [...]


    17. Maaan, This book is really a good twisty dark novel .The ending was heartbreaking and infuriating , I was so mad and upset when I finished it I literally did throw it across the room ! The story is about Mia, a 25 year old girl who is kidnapped from a bar, Colin/Owen is hired to kidnap Mia and deliver her to Dalmar , Colin was following Mia for a really long time before making any move toward her (view spoiler)[( Dalmar : the man who was Hired by Mia to kidnape her and ask her father for ransome [...]


    18. The Good Girl by Mary Kubica was a well written debut novel with a plot that is intereting enough to keep the reader turning the pagesThe story is told from multiple perspectives and is quite easy to follow. This is the sort of book that provides enough suspense to keep you reading and yet by the end you finish with a somewhat sigh of relief and while it was good you are left feeling it could have been better ifWhile I liked the book I kept comparing it to Still Missing which I had read last yea [...]


    19. Honestly? I hated this book.The characters were flat and unlikeable, the plot was boring. Everything was a cliche. The worst part is that it was pretty racist. One of the characters, who is black, is described as having "serpentine eyes" and being wild and unpredictable and physically threatening. The author- multiple times- mentioned whether or not there were black people around SPECIFICALLY to indicate the level of danger or the niceness of the neighborhood. It's pretty unbelievable that the b [...]


    20. Ho Humm. That's my initial feeling after finishing this! It certainly wasn't bad, I just felt like I kind of meandered through waiting for something exciting to happen! I was kept interested mainly because I knew something had to happen because it was only 350 pgs! The 'twist' kept it from being 2 stars. But Iit was ''too little, too late' for me to award more stars!


    21. It's not that Mia was a particularly good girl - she was pretty normal really; got drunk as a teenager, did all the normal things that most of us do. But she had a good heart, a kind heart. She's not particularly close to her family, but that's normal in the first flight of independence, and they don't understand her anyway. She is not a high achiever like her sister Grace. She is a disappointment to her father, a judge.Even when the school where she teaches phones to say Mia hasn't shown for wo [...]


    22. DE LO MEJOR QUE HE LEÍDO ESTE AÑO Una buena chica es un thriller trepidante que me ha enganchado a su lectura como hace mucho tiempo no me enganchaba a un libro. Una novela cargada de giros, con personajes profundizados y con unos toques psicológicos que la han hecho de lo mejor que he leído este año y que, sin duda, no dejará indiferente a nadie.¡Menudo novelón! Cayó en mis manos porque la editorial me lo dio entre otros libros y ni siquiera sabía que existía. De hecho lo leí sin sa [...]


    23. This riveting story grabbed my attention and held me captive. It is woven with twists and turns which will surprise any reader. My favorite part of the book was the smartly structured and creative format, jumping both in perspective and time. The story is told from alternating perspectives of Colin, Mia’s anxious mother, Eve, Gabe Hoffman, the detective on her case and finally from Mia herself. Each of the narrators are adding to the story by unraveling Mia’s life both before and after the a [...]


    24. After all of the glowing reviews I've seen for Mary Kubica, this was actually a bit of a disappointment.Whomp, whompSomeone has paid to have Mia kidnapped. Colin, her kidnapper, is hired to do the dirty work. But instead of taking her to his boss, he whisks Mia away to a remote cabin and keeps her for himself. Told in three parts - Colin, Mia's mother and the detective on the case - the story bounces back and forth between Mia being missing and Mia being found. Mia's perspective is saved for the [...]


    25. For fans of Gone Girl, you will love The Good GirlHighly suspenseful, I finished it in 2 days. The story revolves around a woman who is kidnapped and spends time with her assailant in the backwoods of Minnesota. Three different narrators, her mother, the police detective and the kidnapper share their feelings and stories of before and after the kidnapping.I am not going to say anymore at the risk of being a plot spoiler but the ending threw me for a loopThis is going to be a blockbuster!


    26. An excellent thriller about a woman (Mia Dennett) who is abducted for ransom and the plan goes wrong, or does it? Dun dun dunnnnn…The chapters alternate between Eve (Mia’s mother), Gabe (detective), and Colin (the abductor). We learn all about Mia’s family including her dad who is a prominent judge in Chicago and the world’s biggest jerk! The storyline also veers from ‘before’ and ‘after’—and as a reader, I could feel the tension mounting as the plot got closer and closer to wh [...]


    27. Quick review for a not so quick, and often infuriating read. For Mary Kubica's "The Good Girl" - I'll admit this book kept me reading for quite a bit of the novel to see what would happen through the perspectives of Eve, Gabe and Colin. I really liked the audio narration among a multiple narrative cast, and I did find myself marathoning the book to see what happened in the overarching, ongoing mystery. Mia is a young woman - a teacher - who goes missing under suspicious circumstances. Eve, her m [...]


    28. I loved this book The Good Girl Kubica is a well written novel which was a real page turner warning the book goes backwards & forwards which i am getting used to the plot was great & i felt a liking towards Colin The Protagonist he had a close relationship to Mia & she became very attached to him Stockholm Syndrome.I hated her father the judge he was a cantankerous person who was very manipulative & had his own agendas i could not believe the ending . really enjoyed this book.



    29. Mia Dennett goes to a bar one evening, planning to meet up with the man she's been seeing. He cancels after she arrives but ends up with Colin Thatcher, a man hired to abduct her. What ensues is a bizarre story told by several narrators. I found the story interesting, especially its use of multiple characters to tell the story in the past and present. I never found it confusing and it was delivered coherently despite it not being linear storytelling, sort of like lots of asides before you get th [...]
