When I read my first Gillian Flynn novel, I was confused, discombobulated, and frazzled when I finished it. I didn't know if it liked it or hated it. But now I'm 3 Flynn novels in and I love her, love her writing. I'm hooked. This novella is nothing different. It's Gillian all the way! No disappointment here. If you're familiar with her endings, then you know how it goes- there is no ending. Read it. You won't be disappointed. I also want to add that I despise advertising for novels that say they are the new "Gone Girl", etc. There is no comparison, she is one of a kind. Summer reading kick off has begun.
