Review - The Murders of Molly Southbourne (DNF)

The Murders of Molly Southbourne
by Tade Thompson
Date: 2010
Reading level: A
Book type: prose novel
Pages: 128
Format: e-book

Every time she bleeds a murderer is born. Experience the horror of Tade Thompson's The Murders of Molly Southbourne.

The rule is simple: don't bleed.

For as long as Molly Southbourne can remember, she's been watching herself die. Whenever she bleeds, another molly is born, identical to her in every way and intent on her destruction.

Molly knows every way to kill herself, but she also knows that as long as she survives she'll be hunted. No matter how well she follows the rules, eventually the mollys will find her. Can Molly find a way to stop the tide of blood, or will she meet her end at the hand of a girl who looks just like her?

DNF @ 27%

I want to emphasize that not finishing this has nothing to do with the quality of the book. I simply got sidetracked, and then my computer crashed. Since this book was a free download from (and I hadn't backed it up), I lost it.

What I did read was quite intriguing. If I can find a copy at the library sometime, I might finish it. As it stands now, though, it's going to be a DNF.
