it was amazing
bookshelves: 2020, fiction

First read from Gillian Flynn, and damn, what I have been missing!

The Grownup is a short read that won't let go, starting with the opening line: "I didn't stop giving hand jobs because I wasn't good at it. I stopped giving hand jobs because I was the best at it."

The narrator is confident and apparently trustworthy, until things start to fall apart. And ultimately, readers are left unsure whom to trust by the end. Seriously, though, I cannot forgive Flynn for the ending, and I will be filing a formal complaint. It was frustrating in all of the right ways and left me unsettled as a Thriller should.
