What do I look for in a book that I would aspire to an award by moi?
I haven't decided yet if this is chick lit as it is a love story, kind of, and a murder mystery, sort of, with a solid dash of sociopathic and other interesting personalities, and enough turns in the very compelling story to make you dizzy.
This would be a fun choice for a book club discussion, or a nice present for a mature female friend. I had read some great reviews, so I purchased it for our annual book club Xmas party exchange in 2012. It ended up back to me after Y. had finished, and it will continue to circulate among our members. I am excited to see what they thought of the ending.
I can't wait to tear into Gillian Flynn's other novels, Sharp Objects (2007) and Dark Places (2010). I'm hooked now.
