Could. Not. Put. It. Down.

I love it when I find a book that is so good all I want to do is hide myself away and read.
(Of course finding it during the school holidays was not ideal given this, at times, almost overpowering urge!)

This is one such book. It's an 'Oooh a red light, I can squeeze in a paragraph or two', 'read-while-you-stir-the-porridge', 'just-one-more-chapter-then-I'll-go-to-sleep' kind of book.

It was literally the thriller of the year, well so far at least.



There were times when I both loved and hated each of the lead characters, sometimes both at the same time...

The author is apparently working on the screenplay.

All I can say is I will be keeping an eye out for further works by Gillian Flynn.

Yup! Read it in the motorhome and was positively gleeful at going to bed quite early with the kids so I could read and read and read ;-)

My mum just finished recommending this one to me.
I'll see if the library has it on the e-book list.
