so, we've had a lot of snow lately. like, a LOT. and they aren't real good about cleaning 10 inches of snow off the streets around here. so that meant 3.5 snow days. 3.5 snow days meant too much food, not enough exercise, and plenty of time to read. this book had been sitting on my nightstand for months. my cousin rachel gave it to me and said i'd love it if i loved gone girl. and trust me, i really really loved gone girl. so i figured "why not? it's a perfect time dig into a good thriller." well, let me start by saying this..."i forgive you, rach!" gone girl was certainly dark. but this book takes dark to a whole new level. the people are lost, lonely, hurt, violent, broken, ugly and lacking in redemption. their issues are menacing and unforgiving. i knew from the start i should just put this book down. but flynn is SUCH a great writer, i had to find out what happened. so here's my advice, don't even start this book. pass by it in target, just walk away. because now these people and their crazy thoughts and their vivid murders are stuck in my head forever. this will be the last book of her's i read. i just can't take it. although it does remind me how great my life is. boring maybe, but i'll take that any day over drug filled, angry and desperate. no doubt!
