Shining Girls (Beukes) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
A triumph ... [T]he smart and spunky Kirby Mizrachi is as exciting to follow as any in recent genre fiction ... [E]ach chapter in which [Harper] appears holds a reader's attention, especially the sharply described murder scenes - some of which read as much like starkly rendered battlefield deaths out of Homer as forensic reconstructions of terrible crimes ... This book means business.
NPR

[Beukes is] so profusely talented—capable of wit, darkness, and emotion on a single page—that a blockbuster seems inevitable.... The Shining Girls marks her arrival as a major writer of popular fiction.
USA Today


The premise is pure Stephen King, but Beukes gives it an intricate, lyrical treatment all her own.
