Summary:

NOW AN HBO® LIMITED SERIES STARRING AMY ADAMS, NOMINATED FOR EIGHT EMMY AWARDS, INCLUDING OUTSTANDING LIMITED SERIES

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

    This was a great book. Kept me listening and intrigued as to what was next. The ending was crazy and exciting. Excellent read!

    Sick, and deranged but hard to put down. Guess the saying "it doesn't fall far from the tree" is right because that girl and her mother........just read the book, (I don't wanna give it all away). Gillian Flynn did it again.

    Now THIS was interesting! I would say it's a fresh take on domestic thrillers, but it was written before they became really popular, so I'll just say that for me, this is how they should be done. It's far superior to many of the domestic thrillers oversaturating the market right now. A compelling take on the female psyche not often written about, this book was filled with terrible characters doing terrible things, but I could not stop reading until the twisted end.

    This was SO GOOD! it's my second novel by Gillian Flynn and I absolutely loved it. It was easy to get in to and difficult to put down. I even listened on my 10 minute coffee breaks because I just had to know what was going to happen next. A few things were a little typical for this style of novel, which is a shame, but that doesn't really take away anything from the story as a whole. I think the narrator did a good job bringing the story and characters to life and would like to recommend this book to anyone looking to experience some of the darker aspects of the human mind.

    This book is the very HEART of why I love to read...exhilarating, unknowing, edge of my seat, things I would never think of (words "speaking" on skin). It is a dark book but they is why it is in the Mystery, Thriller and Horror Category. Narration was excellent. I have had a few books where the narrator turns me off immediately and I don't finish the book.

    Shocking in so many ways. Very well written and narrated. It is very dark, but it’s unpredictable and raw and it shows that humans, indeed, can be monsters no matter age or gender. Throughout, I had a thought pop up of how does one think of such a storyline?

    Writing was good, narration was good - but I did not like the book - I don't like to see so much darkness with really no light.

    Dark and boring. I gave it 1 star because I do like the authors books but this one was not good.
