Overview

Hannah Harker is bored. Her tedious job as a local newspaper reporter is grinding her soul to dust and she cannot find anything to interest or excite her.

Refusing to accept an average life of anonymity, she decides to tear up all the rule books and do everything in her power to find a cure for this boredom.

Free from the shackles of social convention and morality, she sets off down a dark and dangerous path that will change her forever.

A terrible tragedy of her own making sends her spiralling into meltdown and the lives of countless people get dragged into her twisted world.

Embarking on a brutal journey through Asia, she befriends arms dealers in Thailand, gangsters in Hong Kong and terrorists in Malaysia, while breaking the hearts of men and women at every turn.

As the clock ticks down to a shattering conclusion, the world can only pray that she self-destructs before creating the most staggering news event in history.

My heroine is Lisbeth Salander from the Millenium triology and I believe that at the heart of every great book or film is a memorable and complex character who stays with you long after the end. Lisbeth Salander is definatly memorable and complex, and in a disturbed girls guide to curing boredom we have Hannah Harker. She is not an outcast who is looked down on by society, like Lisbeth, but she is tormented by the demons in her own head. She is undeniably a bad person, but her motives are complex and I found myself rooting for her even though I knew I shouldn't! I hope she returns in another novel because I would love to know what Hannah Harker does next in her insane life...

I love to discover something truly fresh and original, and with this Disturbed Girl book I have found the perfect character in Hannah Harker. I knew when I was reading that I should hate her and despise the horrific acts she commits, but she is so much deeper and more complex than an American Psycho. I was actually able to relate to her on many levels and even understand her motivation, although she takes things much too far. The story delivers plenty of sex and violence as promised, but I found the story almost secondary to Hannah. It is her that I want to know more about and find out what she does next. I know there is a sequel due out soon (maybe already?) called DG Implodes and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
