I read a review of this book that said it would make listeners enjoy the commute to work and it did. Satanism and mass murders are a little heavy for a morning drive but the story really pulled me in. The narrators were great too.
it became quite anti-climatic at the end when all was revealed. Certainly entertaining enough. Not bad but Gone Girl which I had listened to first had sorta the same formula as this book.
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.
