I'll Be Gone in the Dark!!!
I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer - Gillian Flynn,Gabra Zackman,Patton Oswalt,Michelle McNamara

reread thoughts: I still get all the chills reading this.




english review


audible audiobook
*warning this review is written while I have some headcold going on. I can't breathe and can't hear properly. If my review doesn't make sense or doesn't seem thought out really well, blame it on the huge cloud around my head*

This was such a chilling read for so many different reasons.

That case is all kinds of disturbing. BUT it was told in such a great way. Seriously, the writing. (Also, I truly enjoyed the way the audio book was produced).

The last few chapters. Especially the letter towards the end just gave me all the chills.
I also loved the (kinda) discussion part at the end about how much that book helped find the son of a bitch, or if it didn't help at all. That was...interesting.

I HIGHLY recommend this book!!!
Even though I'm super into True Crime, I think that was the first time I actually read a book about it. I have some serious catching up to do. But this one set the bar really high.

Dark Places - Gillian Flynn

The characters in this one are slightly less unpleasant than those in Sharp Objects. I will definitely need something light and fluffy when I've finished.

Sharp Objects - Gillian Flynn

WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart. Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker’s troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, Camille’s first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.


NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg. Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.


HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle. As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.


So far I don't like a single person in this book.

The Grownup - Gillian Flynn

Huh. Well that sure was something. I'm not sure what, precisely, but something for sure. This is really a short story packaged as a novella. There's not a lot of meat on these bones, but what is there is interesting. The voice is strong and the language evocative. This one is best experienced rather than described. Just a nibble of a book, but one I will likely remember farther down the road.
