A little predictable and the characters weren't as complex as her other two books. I wonder if I would have liked this more if I hadn't read Girl Gone and Dark Places First.

This book was so fucking wild what, there’s so many people who could’ve committed the murders and it ends up being the person I least expect?

With Camille’s mother it’s pretty obvious, she’s not a good parent you can tell! Unless her kids are sick, which says something about her as a person. It shows that she needs to be wanted.

A gripping book, like Gillian Flynn's other two novels - a real page turner.

This is by far the BEST book I’ve read in a long time. I knew I was hooked when I was only two chapters in and I already didn’t want it to end! Eerily creepy from start to finish, I was guessing the entire time. Definitely a must read!

All I can say about this book is just wow! This was not the ending I was expecting.

I really started liking Gillian Flynn after reading Gone Girl, then read Dark Places and wasn't very impressed. This book changed my mind again. It was such a dark and disturbing ride, but one I couldn't seem to put down. Rarely do I find myself not really knowing how the book will end up, and this one definitely kept me guessing. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
