Again Gillian flynn delivers a thrilling novel that keeps you at the edge of your seat !
I must say that this was the lesser of her 3 novels, but it was still a well though out plot that tackles some serious topics !
I semi figured out who had done it pretty early in the book but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

This book was truly amazing !
It had me on the edge of my seat almost the whole time. It's thrilling, creepy and a little sad.
I adore Gillian Flynn's writing style and her endings are always so darn good !
