This is a book about a girl, Libby Day, only 7 years old, who lost 3 members of her family in a horrible crime in 1985. The book is very well written that you do not find out until the very end, how they actually died.
We hear the story from 3 points of view - Libby's, her mother's, and her big brother, Ben. The story is told in flashbacks and present day. I enjoyed this book so much I couldn't wait to get in my car so I could keep reading. Narration was quite good, also. Definitely, worth a credit.
I feel like this audiobook was as fixating as the "Serial" podcast, but with a more satisfying ending. It has everything I'd want in a great mystery, and Flynn's shifts from a first person protagonist to third person side characters keeps you guessing and constantly changing sympathies based on new, shocking revelations. The audiobook has a great collection of voices and by the end I was sad to say goodbye to them. I fully recommend this book, particularly on audiobook!
It's creepy, fascinating, descriptive and obsessive. I love the insight on all the characters, especially Libby herself. Gillian Flynn is the best author around
