Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (Read 2/3-2/6)
This is the second Gillian Flynn book I have read. I read Gone Girl in June of 2014. I have become a fan. She takes us down such an unexpected rabbit hole with her stories. The twists of this book wasn't as shocking as in Gone Girl, but it still wasn't easily predictable. I was a bit disappointed in the ending. I felt that it all tied up a little to neatly, I wanted more left undone. It seemed pretty neat compared to Gone Girl. I still flew through the book, 3 days to read. It was really hard to put down, and I kept staying up past my bedtime to read "one more chapter." Flynn's writing is so smooth and conversational that it felt more like I was listening to a friend talk than reading a book. I need to get her book Sharp Objects because I have a feeling history will repeat itself and I will love it!
