First Aid Kit Girl reviews 

 

These reviews are taken from Amazon for the paperback and Kindle version of First Aid Kit Girl:

 

As Steph's life unravelled, spinning out of control, I couldn't read this book fast enough. And the ending sent a shiver down my spine.

...

I loved this book, Stephanie is such an intense and interesting character, I just couldn't stop reading until I found out what happened to her. A book for anyone who has ever worked in an office - and for anyone who has done everything they could not to work in an office!

...

It's one of the funniest books I've read for a while. Stephanie, the main character, I thought was great yet slightly disturbing (which made it interesting). I was hooked to this book and finished it within a week. It was the quickest book I've read, and found it quite an easy read, not too complicated to follow at all. A brilliant book that I highly recommend.

...

This book made me laugh out loud in places, and then later on, brought me close to tears. I finished it with a far greater understanding of why people might self harm, and what it can mean to them. But there is far more to the book than that. The writer must have experienced a soul-destroying routine office job in order to write about it with such accuracy. I hope she escaped by less drastic means than Steph.

...

This book is completely shocking and thought-provoking. I couldn't quite believe it at times. Heart wrenching and sad too. would definitely recommend but not for the faint hearted.

...

I thought this book was totally gripping and I couldn't put it down. It all felt so real - scarily so. I felt myself identifying with the main character. I read it in five days, which for me is quick. Really suspenseful in a couple of places too - my heart was literally hammering. The reason I've given it four stars instead of five is because it was very, very dark - more so than I expected, and I guess just a little too close to the bone.

...

Really enjoyed reading this book. It's easy to read so great for a holiday novel but darkly funny and a good antidote to sickly sweet chic-lit. I bought this after following Lynsey's blog and enjoying her writing style there so I knew I would like this book.

...

With its diary-style narrative, at first glance FAKG reads like a more accomplished, more polished version of Lynsey's blog Exitainment, which I have been following for several years. Certainly, there is no mistaking Lynsey's distinctive authorial voice, which comes through loud and clear. But there is a lot more to this office-based dystopian tale.

...

GRIPPED! I couldn't put it down. Steph the main character is identifiable in so many ways. I LOVE this author's style. I felt like i lived this book- loved the exciting emotional roller coaster ride Lynsey Rose takes you on. Can't wait for her next one!

...

This is a stunning debut novel, I read it in two sittings it was so gripping - something I have not done for many, many years. It is darkly funny but also has a very engaging storyline - was amazed at how the writer made such a thrilling story set in such a mundane setting. Literally could not put this book down until I found out what happened at the end, wish there were more books like this and will be eagerly awaiting the follow-up.

...

 

You could perhaps describe it as a cross between Bridget Jones Diary and The Trial by Franz Kafka. It's unusual, darkly comic and intense. I was transfixed by it. A real page turner.

...

What a wonderful story! So dark, yet so funny. I love that it's first person perspective and Monday to Friday only, without the relief of a weekend. I loved all the characters and the ending was nothing short of perfect. The physical pain throughout was casually horrifying. Millimetres away from 'I can imagine myself doing that'. An astonishing book. 

...

For a first novel, an epic achievement. You quickly get absorbed into the dark reality of Steph's life, and her dark sense of humour. A must read.

...

The book is genuinely very funny throughout, starting off as comic noir and getting darker as the narrator's monologue progresses. Periodically there are several wonderfully written moments of pure tension which are so convincing and enthralling that one looks through one's fingers and holds one's breath as the moment unfolds.
