I Love Murder and Mystery Novels!
Gillian Flynn delivers her best work, her writing, descriptions of Missouro, and the finale gives way to her best book yet
In this earlier work by Flynn, miserable character Libby Day's testimony sends her older brother Ben to prison for the brutal, bloody deaths of her mother and two sisters. Now, twenty- four years later, an equally dark group of men and infatuated women gradually convince Libby that someone else may have committed the crime.
Flynn uses foreshadowing masterfully is this truly aptly named work in adding kleptomania to Libby Day's miserable existence, a flaw central to the story's eventual resolution. The narration is excellent and Flynn manages to pull off a successful switch back-and-forth between first- and third-person story-telling.
This book was amazing... I love that Gillian Flynn's books suck you into the crazy world of her characters and just totally screws with your head! Bravo Lady!! Bravo.
I only do audio.
Ben. I was a teenage boy. I knew other teenage boys. I saw some of those boys struggle with anger, resentment, and rejection. In fact we all do, but I was shocked how this writer absolutely nailed so many of the nuances of a teenage boys mind.
yes. I liked Libby's narrator better than Bens.
You have no idea what you are capable of....
Got this because I loved Gone Girl. I was hooked from the beginning and finished in less than a week. Gillian can spin a thread and weave it as well as anyone. Nicely done. Hope they don't screw the movie up.
What an intriguing story! It was never boring. It kept me wanting to listen when I arrived at work in the morning and had to shut it off. Looked forward to the drive home. Great story!
