Love reading Gillian Flynn's novels because they are rich with mystery, suspense and intrigue. I give this one 5 stars. Have read Gone Girl and Dark places now. The best feature for me is my inability to predict the end or whodunit in Gillian Flynn's books. This makes it all the more exciting compared to other mystery / suspense novels. Thumbs up to Ms. Flynn. Please keep those stories coming and thanks for writing the screen play for Gone Girl! The narration was also superb in both books. A must read/ listen.
gone girl was better, but only slightly. this book did go to dark places, but you loved all of them. very good writing. I love the way it is told and all the characters have their own voice.

Brilliant Twisting Entertaining
Characters, especially Libby who carries so much baggage
Yes, Gone Girl. This book was somewhat similar in plot and method of going from present to past to develop the story. The ending was much more satisfying with Dark Places due to the feeling that everything was going to work out for the good guys.
The scene-yes Flynn has a style of writing that you can visualize what's going on-where Libby finds Polly and her daughter. The action was so tense, I started sweating.
The character and voice of Lyle was a bit too wimpy. Flynn's character development and descriptive style is refreshing. No holds barred. Great story, although the synchronicity of the murder scene was somewhat unbelievable.
by far my favorite. better than gone girl!! a must must read for any avid reader! I hope she hurries with more books!!
Big fan of Gillian Flynn. Loved this book. Loved the narration. I am always leary when audio books are read by single male and female figures because of how awkward they sound narrating opposite sex voices. The four narrators of this book were absolutely awesome!! The story was great. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Loved it!!
