    Little book - big story

    I have been living under a rock. That is honestly the only explanation that I have. How else could someone that reads as much as I do somehow miss out on reading Gillian Flynn? I mean I have heard of her and have had every intention of picking up one of her books. I think I even checked one out from the library at some point. I just never got around to actually reading any books with her name stamped on the front. When I saw this story, I knew that I could find the time to read this short piece and finally sample this incredibly popular author's work. This short story does a lot of things really well. The writing is really good. I mean really, really good. I picked up this book just to look at it and the next thing that I knew I had finished it. It is amazing how sometimes those kind of things just happen. It is short.....very short....but the story doesn't feel small. This is a big story filled with an intriguing plot, interesting characters, and passages that you will want to share with others. This was the kind of story that I had no idea which direction it would go and every twist was a complete surprise. I was a little sad when I reached the last page because I wanted more. I read this story in hardcover and the presentation is cute. This is one teeny tiny little hardcover novel. It is pinch a baby's cheek kind of cute simply because it is so little. The story starts on page 7 and ends on page 62 and the actual book is only slightly larger than my kindle. It is a nice looking book but I am not sure if it is really worth the $9.99 price tag stamped on the back. I would probably recommend that readers borrow this one from their library or maybe spend a couple of extra dollars and pick up the anthology that it originally appeared in. I read the whole story in less than an hour even though I stopped several times to read passages out loud to my husband. I would recommend the story to others. The writing was wonderful and the pacing of the story really kept my attention. It is obvious that Gillian Flynn is a fantastic storyteller. I cannot wait to read more from this very talented author. I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    The Grownup

    Wow. Gillian Flynn is scary good and never,ever disappoints. Well, I'm disappointed that it was so short but......wow.

    A fun, quick one

    This took a couple of train rides to complete, but it was fun while it lasted. My first Kobo experience & I enjoyed it.

    The Grownup

    This book had a great start, but no ending. Very disappointed for an author I normally love. Would never have purchased half a story.

    Gillian, please continue this short story into a longer novel.

    Like the story, but hoping it is just part 1 of a longer tale. Spoiler******* Who is the liar; son or mother? Where is the dad? What about the stain in her apartment? Continue with the supernatural ghastly undertone.
