It’s a testament to an author’s talent that a novel draws you in despite its unpleasant characters and a story that raises more questions than it can answer. What is this commune about, what’s the characters’ background? I would have liked to know more about the reasons why ‘the girls’ stuck around despite the lack of food and basic comforts and with no apparent spiritual gains. By the end of the book, I was still unsure of what made Russell so appealing to these women in the first place. Ultimately, what kept me reading was Cline’s writing, her unusual turns of phrase and imagery; the way her prose is imbued with a growing sense of menace that is hard to shake off even once the last page has been turned.
“The Girls” is a novel that makes you want to savour every last word, but that somehow fails to satisfy.
