[Running Girl] Read ✓ Simon Mason


G girl who has been found murdered in a pond The protagonist of the novel is a teenage boy named Garvie Smith in a pond The protagonist of the novel is a teenage boy named Garvie Smith used to date the girl who has been murdered and decides to take it upon himself to find out who murdered her Garvie is a very intelligent guy and outwits the police throughout the entire novel He also has the very keen ability to see the small and supposedly insignificant details in things and see how they fit in to the wider story not unlike Sherlock Holmes For The First Half The Book The Story Is Reasonably the first half the book the story is reasonably hearted almost like a game We as the reader are working alongside Garvie and trying to figure out who the murderer is But around midway through the novel things take a pretty dark turn I mean there were already dark themes being discussed earlier on but it got seriously dark come the middleend There seemed to be a point where Garvie realised that it wasn t all just a puzzle to work out and that a girl had actually had some awful things happen to her and now she was dead I would warn anyone who may be deciding whether to read this novel or not that there are themes of paedophilia rape and brutal murder in this novel If ou are not one to be put off by these themes then by all means go ahead I m not saying that the idea of paedophilia rape and murder shouldn t be discussed in Autopsie D Une Inquitude young adult literature but I do feel that there is a certain cut of point when exploring these ideas I got to the end of this book and felt somewhat depressed my outlook on the world saddened by the horrible events of this books is this me just being sensitive Possibly so You will have to give it a read to formour own opinion but I would definitely say that this book was crammed full of dark events and topics it got to the point where it was simply too much The pacing of the novel was brilliant I got to about 34 of the way through and couldn t put the book down so in that respect it was definitely gripping I also found Garvie to be a really humorous character despite his constant back chatting to the police Would I read this novel again Possibly if I fancied putting a downer on lifeWould I recommend it to others Yes I would say that if anything I have mentioned here sounds like something ou enjoy in a novel then this is probably something ou should read I think my criticisms come from the fact that this isn t really a novel that I would usually go for YA crime novel with a differenceI didn t expect this to be so gritty Garvie is such an interesting character grumpy teenager combining extreme intelligence with extreme boredom Fascinating really although I definitely felt for his mother with him being such a difficult person especially when his brain is finally turned on and then nothing stops him Mason brings such a modern slant to the cosy murder mystery which in turns takes much of the cosy away Garvie the threatening industrial estate setting the delinuents group with their inner respect even DI Singh and the situations he faces all work together to deliver a very compelling and El Leon Que No Sabia Escribir The Lion Who Doesn T Know How To Write yes thrilling read Highly enjoyable YA crime fiction story to be had here with a really most tremendous main protagonist in Garvie Smith and a brilliant foil in his Police Officer sidekick ok so DI Singh defnitely wouldnt consider himself a sidekick he s the main man surely A seriously goodinyang relationship that brings this book an extra layer of ironic funGarvie used to go out with Chloe who was beautiful but not necessarily particularly nice so when she is murdered he takes a vague interest Well he s like a dog with a bone and ends up delving into the case and getting in Singh s way except really there is a very good chance he might crack itI loved the feel of this story its kind of old school but with a modern twist if I had to describe it I d say it might be something that Agatha Christie may have written if she had written Young Adult books today The mystery element is terrific with beautiful construction some little twists and turns and an exciting resolutionBut what makes this is the characters for sure Garvie is at turns hilarious and ironic he s so laid back he might fall over but when he s obsessing about something that is it his uite brilliant if rather random brain cells get ticking over and he see s what others do not and ponders those things that seem illogical Very Miss Marple If Miss Marple was a grumpy teenager who didnt really do schoolOverall then really really terrific I see from the back of the book that another GarvieSingh adventure will be coming soon That one is on my must read list Super fun with an emotional punch definitely highly recommende. ESmart stylish and packed with twists and turns from start to finish Running Girl introduces an unforgettable new character to the world of crime fiction so lazy he'd only get out of bed for murd. The way with a good build up to the culminating moment revealing the murderer which by the way I did not suspect at allWhat I enjoyed the most however was watching the frosty relationship between Garvie and DI Singh thawing into one of friendship and mutual respect Those two definitely formed an unlikely duo and were complete polar opposites Outside of the obvious adult vs teenager elements we get to know a DI Singh with a rather rigid and method based approach to investigation which ends up to be completely blown out by a oung man s keen sense of observationThe layers under the plot however raised some rather interesting uestions One layers under the plot however raised some rather interesting uestions One them being Do ou know Impresiuni I Preri Pesonale Din Timpul Rzboiului Romniei Jurnal Zilnic 13 August 1916 31 Decembrie 1918 Vol 2 your own child a topic which was rather well illustrated through Chloe s behaviour and the energy and effort she put into appearing older then her age completely oblivious to any potential dangers this could bring forthThe second one which would also unsettle any parent is Canou tell when What Measure Of Inflation Should A Developing Country Central Bank Target your child needs help Canou read the signs Again a point which was demonstrated through Chloe s relationship with her motherI will end my review by adding that Running Girl is highly entertaining and rooted in a very real setting that most readers can relate to Fans of Panther by David Owen or The Art of Being by Lisa Williamson although touching upon very different topics will recognise that very same palpable present in those novelsI am happy to recommend this read to all and I am looking forward to reading the second installment in this seriesThanking team ED Public Relations and David Flicking Books for providing me with a copy of this novel I bumped up my rating from four stars to five out of spite after reading through all the other reviewsAs someone who enjoyed and identified with Garvie I don t uite understand many reviewers dislike towards his character Yes he s a cocky showoff who s too cool to make an effort at being a good student but he is after all a teenager And a very clever one at that Perhaps it was just in my personal experience but I remember teenage Secrets Of The Eternal Moon Phase Goddesses Meditations On Desire Relationships And The Art Of Being Broken years being a blatant showcase of everyone s worst traits on full display before they got tamed into socially acceptable fa adesears later Clever teens tend to be rough around the edges if only for their shortsightedness and exasperation motivated by the feeling that they ve already figured everything out It s only after they get older and mature that they learn to hone their cleverness into a palatable package for social interactions with people who may not be similarly minded While they are oung though they can t help but wear and flash it around for everyone to see like a badge of honor and burden all at the same timeEven then Garvie never displays any instance of malice or cruelty in his interactions with the other characters nor does he belittle anyone on purpose other than the police at their seeming incompetence He treats his friends with respect in his own way and eventually the people who earn it from him like SinghI believe his character truly comes into view in the very last chapter where he discusses Chloe and other girls like her in the worldThe biggest problem of Garvie s arrogance and insensitivity I could see was in his disrespect towards his mother in the majority of the novel However that seems like a calculated move on Mason s part as it provides the biggest development arc for Garvie s character towards the end Ultimately this was one of the satisfying aspects of the novelThe mystery itself was a fun ride if not a bit predictable but I can t fault the novel on that as the twists were logically thought out the cast s interactions were interesting on their own and the story was well paced to keep me hooked throughoutI also really appreciate the fact that it treats dark subjects with the appropriate level of seriousness that they deserve Many YA novels in the mystery genre treat death and other serious crimes as mere devices and games to keep the mood light and the reader comfortable in hisher reading Mason seems to intentionally touch on that aspect with the stark contrast in Garvie s attitude towards Chloe s misfortune in the beginning and his changed perspective near the endAll in all Running Girl is a very solid teen detective novel with a strong protagonist who grows in the end I believe it deserves praise than it s received Great mystery story Interesting how we follow Garvie and learn about the clues as he does Recommend I have really mixed views on this read I honestly can t work out if I enjoyed it or not All in all I would give it between 35 and 4 stars So this novel follows the story of a oun. IrlfriendInspector Singh is already on the case Ambitious uptight methodical he's determined to solve the mystery and get promoted He doesn't need any assistance from a notorious slackerOr does This has to be another favourite for 2016 A great British YA crime drama with fantastic characters Definitely not a romance novel of a Sherlock themed detective thriller While I enjoyed the character of Garvie it was the relationship between him and DI Singh and how they played off against each other that was truly entertaining A great crime novel excellent tension and I really do hope there is another in the series soon Well worth a look The slouchy too cool for school kid that everyone who went to state comprehensive experienced Coupled with a high I and a twist of Sherlock Holmes Garvie Smith is the newest teen detective on the council block Good strong characters and sparky dialogue with Inspector Singh made this mystery bounce along A little bit uncomfortable with the caretaker storyline but ultimately a good story with twists and turns Some of my teen reading group read this and loved it I have really mixed feelings on this book As a Crime novel it was brilliant So cleverly written with lots of twists and turns which kept The Church And The Puritans 1570 1660 Classic Reprint you guessing right until the end I liked how everything was turned on its head several times and being made to rethink things over and over again as the story went on The story with the girl who died was almost a bit twin peaks esue without the weirdness asou got to find out a darker side of a girl who on the surface looked perfect However I really really struggled to connect with the main character I found him really irritating and hard to warm to and it was really until the last two chapters that I got to see something about him That meant every scene with him in up until that point annoyed me uite a bit especially when he was being all cocky and smart with the police All in all still a book I would A cracking crime novel ideally suited to the The New And Living Way An Orderly Arrangement And Exposition Of The Doctrines Of Christian Experience According To The Scriptures Classic Reprint younger reader Meet Garvie Smith Charming brilliant and completely bone idle If anything can get his attention it might just be a murder Running Girl is a riveting read full of fast paced action packed drama and intensity that is sure to encourageoung teens to read The clever twists and turns within the electrifying storyline keep Great Irish Short Stories you sat in suspense throughout while Simon Mason intentionally writes in such a way as to shockou when least expected Personally I however have mixed views on this book as I did find it increasingly difficult as I read on to connect with the main character Garvie Ultimately I do on the whole find it easier to relate to female protagonists within fiction et in this instance I wasn t expecting to feel so disconnected with the oung boy His cocky arrogant and at times repugnant attitude that I found somewhat off putting even though there are elements of truism when depicting putting even though there are elements of truism when depicting typical teenage lad This element sadly contributed to the downfall of what could have been a spectacular story of such premise et could have been a spectacular story of such premise et characters in a tale do make the story come to life I may have felt deflated by the main protagonist nevertheless the scintillating storyline and plot as a whole was engaging to the part of keeping me reading the pages Running Girl is a novel that I would recommend for schools and extra reading as it is the kind of story that appeals to a wide readership of both male and female teenagers and older children 13 The easy to read storyline is something that Space Is Power The Seven Rules Of Territory you can immediately delve into and follow with the crime spy backdrop a subject that is universally read by theounger reader and less select within its genre For those who enjoyed books such as Spy Girl by Carol Hedges or Silverfin will not be disappointed by this light literature What draws my attention to this Hedges or Silverfin will not be disappointed by this light literature What draws my attention to this most is how it encourages the How To Write A Children S Book younger
