I won this book through first reads.The best thing about this story is the main character, Seven She s a strong, but confused character that adds depth to the novel The basic set up is intriguing, her family has been killed and Seven wants to find out why and get revenge She has a dry, sarcastic humour, which works well and was the main thing that kept me wanting to read .I did feel that this thriller was a bit too simplistic There s not really much mystery surrounding what happened to her famil [...]
Very interesting with quite a twist.
I m not a big reader of crime fiction but I did read Jameson s debut novel, Something You Are I liked Something You Are but there were elements that I didn t click with mostly because of the genre However, I loved Girl Seven and found it a fast, exciting and enjoyable read.What really made this book for me was the protagonist and narrator, Seven Seven s family were murdered and the case was never solved She sets out to get her revenge and inevitably gets mixed up in London s seedy underbelly Sev [...]
I received a copy of Girl Seven via a giveaway and never having read anything by Hanna Jameson before, I was pretty excited The story follows the journey of Seven, a young twenty something living in London, struggling to find herself following the brutal murder of her parents and younger sister Caught up in a life of strip clubs, escorting, violence and criminal activity, Seven real name Kiyomi longs to return to Japan Finally it seems her prayers are answered, when Kiyomi is offered a chance to [...]
Disclaimer I bought this book because I know Hannah, and I read her first book and enjoyed it Girl Seven has been languishing on the shelves for a few weeks now This kind of thriller about the criminal underworld isn t usually my cup of tea I prefer my gory deaths to be associated with zombies, vampires and werewolves, not waifish young women unless that waifish young woman is a vampire or a werewolf.Still, it s been a day of enforced rest away from my desk after spending the morning in hospital [...]
Hanna Jameson s first novel, Something You Are, was one of the best things I read last year so I ve been looking forward to finding out how she coped with the challange of the difficult second novel And the verdict isetty well On the downside I missed the narrative twists and turns of the first book but this time round everything is subservient to the eponymous central character, and she is a spectacular success Seven as I ll call her, because I m useless at spelling Japanese names despite a sha [...]
I won a copy of this book through the First Reads I want to say thank you to First Reads because I was one of the winners of this book giveaway It was fast moving book without unnecessary details to burden the reader I think it would have work better if it was a movie rather than book I found strange how unemotional is the main character after everything she has endured in her life I found a little unbelievable the fact that people dealing with dirty deals will give so much freedom to the women [...]
I received this book in a Giveaway and was excited to start reading it It started very well, lots of intrigue into how she became who she was after her parents and sister were murdered.When she eventually found out what had happened to her family it was a bit of an anti climax, I was expecting from that part of the story It wasn t a bad read but not one I would re read.
What an interesting book.I can not imagine the life Seven is forced to live after the death, murder, of her family How she managed to survive and become such a strong person, is a mystery.This book is full of tormented, twisted individuals, and yet they evoke sympathy and understanding.Daisy is a wonderful character I hope there is about her in the following books.
Loved Seven, thought she was such an intriguing character Really liked how it tied in with Something You Are, too There is so much in here that could only be written by a young female writer writing a young female character You just can t manufacture this kind of authenticity Looking forward to the next one Hope it s about Daisy or Mark, they re my favourite characters.
Having loved Something You Are I found this second book in the series disappointing I think this was mainly because I felt very little sympathy with or interest in the main character.
Was really surprised at the not so good reviews for this book I really quite enjoyed it, Seven is a great character and I d be really happy to read books with her in it.
it s a good book.
