My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow, what a read! What totally insane characters. I loved how my allegiance to the two main protagonists/antagonists shifted, I loved how the story kept me guessing, I loved how the entire train wreck of these 2 characters’ lives unfolded across this story with a complete – omg! – every few pages.
I also liked how the story progressed from chapter to chapter alternating the character’s points of view and each section carried the story forward.
Even though neither main character ends up being particularly likable (and that usually is the death knell to me leaving a book unread) the story is just so fabulous that I had to know what happened next.
The ending flagged a bit for me – but how do you end such a story?! I finished the book fearing for their future – will there be another? A final ending?
A definite ‘must read’! Gillian Flynn is an awesome storyteller 😀
