I really liked the premise for this book. I thought the idea was fresh and exciting. The characters were well developed and as damaged as you’d expect, this being a book written by Gillian Flynn. The novel was rife with her characteristic psychological mayhem. The pacing was perfect. All in all, it was well done.
But sometimes, I’m hard to please. I was left feeling slightly disappointed. I didn’t love the ending. It didn’t leave me breathless, which is in large part my fault. I couldn’t help but to compare it to Gone Girl, which isn’t fair. After readjusting my expectations back to reality, this was really quite a good book and one I would recommend. 4.5 to 5 stars.
