Dark Places

Dark Places: A Novel Dark Places: A Novel by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a fabulous, suspenseful summer read! It may be a bit on the dark side for some people’s summer reading lists, but it was just perfect for me to read on the plane ride up to Michigan this weekend. This is exactly the kind of thrilling mystery I like to read. The clues are there for the reader to pick up, and every little exchange ends up looming large in the terrific conclusion. You may wonder why certain aspects of the “Kill Club” are pointed out, or why the gossipy little sister’s diaries are relevant, but in the end, they all matter, and they all fit perfectly together. I really do love it when authors think about how they want their book to end, and pull the needed pieces together to complete their puzzle.
Fantastic, seriously, go read this.
Next up is Fragment by Warren Fahy.
