Perhaps you cannot call me a fan of Gillian Flynn, if I only loved her from her third book - which, incidentally, was the first book I had read of hers. I waved Gone Girl around like the hero soldier of the book world. It was what we had been waiting for - something dark, disturbing and incredibly violent.
I went trudging through her backlist, but it was Tamarin at I Want a Dodo (her review of the novel can be found here), who finally convinced me to get through this one. And look, a movie - again - starring Charlize Theron.
About the Book
Taken off Goodreads
Libby Day was just seven years old when her evidence put her fifteen-year-old brother behind bars. Since then, she has been drifting. But when she is contacted by a group who are convinced of Ben's innocence, Libby starts to ask questions she never dared to before. Was the voice she heard her brother's? Ben was a misfit in their small town, but was he capable of murder? Are there secrets to uncover at the family farm or is Libby deluding herself because she wants her brother back? She begins to realise that everyone in her family had something to hide that day... especially Ben. Now, twenty-four years later, the truth is going to be even harder to find. Who did massacre the Day family?
Cannot wait to see what it is like?
