Reviews Gunslinger Girl

  • Katerina
    “Welcome to Cessation, Serendipity Jones. The last place on the continent where you can do whatever the hell you want.” I didn't know Gunslinger Girl existed before the day it arrived on my doorstep. I didn't know what to expect, only what the cover and the blurb suggested: an explosive blend of futuristic dystopia and Wild West laced with danger, conspiracies and intrigue. It is with great pleasure, ladies and gentlemen, to declare that Lyn...

    Fans of WESTWORLD will devour this and beg for more! Dark as a dystopian future and wild as the old West, this is a debut to keep in your sights.

    It is entirely possible that the story improves past page 76, but I just can't stick it out. This book reads like bargain basement YA from 2007. It does nothing new. It takes the standard dystopian tropes, adds some Western "flavoring," and calls it a day. You have a horrifically misogynistic commune (literally called the Commune) where everyone talks like an old time Western painted over in sepia and women are coveted for being fertile and trade...

    As much as I'd like to say I don't judge a book by its cover, sometimes I do pick one up solely because the cover calls to me. Isn't this cover intriguing? I want to be her. So I picked it up and read her in almost one sitting (darn that work shift getting in the way), and now I can't stop talking about how much I love this book. It's a debut novel, too! Which means to me, and no pressure, Lindsay, but I'm excited for all the years of reading you...

    Gunslinger Girl was a powerful book set in a dystopian western society. It was so creative and unique, I loved every minute of it.Pity can't wait for the day she can escape the commune. After her mother's death, Pity has lived a life of being told what to do by her father. When her father returns to town and tells Pity of his plan to sell her off to some stranger because she's "fertile," Pity decides that her escape is either now or never. Pity i...

    If Louis L'Amour wrote MOULIN ROUGE and set it in the Capitol of Panem... you'd have GUNSLINGER GIRL. (Okay, so I've actually never *read* a Louis L'Amour book—I know, Mom, don't hate me—but he was the most notable Western writer I could think of.) I can honestly say I've never read another book quite like Lyndsay Ely's debut... and I can also honestly say I'll probably never forget it! Ely's characters and setting are both larger-than-life; ...

    This book is very different from any book I've ever read. It is set in a futuristic Wild West. I was hooked from the first page. Here was a girl who called herself Pity. Her life was terrible. She and her BFF Finn attempt to escape to a big city and out of the confines of Pity's abusive father. She's escapes with her dead mother's two guns. Pity finds herself in Cessation. It's like a carnival city with a fortress at the center called Cassmir . P...
