This Gorgeous Game by Donna Freitas


A CHILLING NOVEL ABOUT THE ISOLATION OF BEING STALKED AND THE ABUSE OF POWER.

Olivia Peters is over the moon when her literary idol, the celebrated novelist and muchadored local priest Mark D. Brendan, offers to become her personal writing mentor. But when Father Mark’s enthusiasm for Olivia’s prose develops into something more, Olivia’s emotions quickly shift from wonder to confusion to despair. Exactly what game is Father Mark playing, and how on earth can she get out of it?

This remarkable novel about overcoming the isolation that stems from victimization is powerful, luminous, and impossible to put down.


This was one intense book, the summary is a little deceiving because it doesn’t explain the book very well. In the beginning of the book, it took me awhile for me to realize that was going on. When I finally put two and two together, I was totally creeped out. The priest was gross and disgusting.
I know that this topic isn’t discussed often in books, and I’m happy that The Gorgeous Game shed light on the issue of stalking. The priest is convinced that him and this teen, the main character, are meant for each other. He followers her around and shows up when she is with her friends. He even goes as far as showing up at her house and eating dinner with her and her family.
Freitas did a wonderful job of capturing what was going on. I felt creeped out by the priest, just like the main character. The Gorgeous Game get’s into your head and stays there.
