This was my second try at reading this one. It just didn't grab me the first time but the audio book that I was able to get from the library helped me get into it and stay involved. It was a lot slower than I had thought it would be. And the mystery bits weren't as mysterious or intense as I had h...

I was expecting a more traditional mystery than I actually got here, and I was also expecting a paranormal element for some reason. This is a good story, though, for all that is is much more of a thriller than a traditional mystery. Things are definitely not always what they seem, and although I a...

This was a really good audiobook. I listened to it in just about one day. There were several different readers, and they all did their parts well. The author has created an atmosphere of mystery and suspense, capturing the reader’s interest from the get-go. The only problem was that it took me awhil...

I just finished my second book in a row that was recommended “for fans of Gillian Flynn”… To be fair, they also recommended it to fans of Daniel Woodrell, but I haven’t read anything by him (yet). In any case, I’m not really sure what the parallels are here. Yes, it is a missing person/murder myst...

This book is good, but please don’t buy it because you like Gillian Flynn. I get it—publishers need to lure readers in by dropping a huge name like Flynn’s, but it almost always leads to disappointment. This book is no exception.Okay, so there is some similarity between Flynn and THE WEIGHT OF BLOOD...

There are two main themes at play within The Weight of Blood. One is that one’s family is the most important force in the world. Every character mentions this at some point during their narrative, and the story itself confirms this in the revelations of the Dane family secrets and Lila’s mysterious ...

I have to start this off by saying that I am not usually squeamish or faint of heart but this book made my stomach turn and at times made me nauseous. If I had loved the book then that wouldn't have bothered me that much but I only thought it was just okay. I really thought that this was going to ...

Recently I have been drawn to murder mystery and disappearance plots. I cannot pinpoint when this started exactly but I have a feeling it is all Gillian Flynn’s fault. My favourite trope seems to be that of the missing mother or wife and the daughter or husband that needs to find out what happened t...
