This, to me, was SO much better than Gone Girl. I listened on audio and the narrator had a very pleasing voice.
This was a small town southern mystery with total dysfunctional family relationships. And, not surprisingly, it was very very dark. So while I recommend this book over Gone Girl, I really only recommend it if you like really dark books. There were also some really interesting and creative aspects to this book.
Flynn can tell a good story. You may not love her characters, but she definitely draws you in. ”
