"Because I feel sorry for you.
Because every morning you have to wake up and be you."
Well doesn't that just sum up this book perfectly.
This was just a bunch of crazy. What is wasn't, though, was full of "twists and turns that you'll never see coming". Especially for someone who watches way too much Investigation Discovery, Criminal Minds and goes into those odd Wikipedia binges where you want to look up something innocent and then somehow spin into in-depth researches on every sociopath/serial killer from the last 500 years. This has been so hyped up to me by friends that I was so ridiculously excited that maybe, just maybe, this would rock in a creepy, I am going to never trust anyone again way. I didn't get that though.
That doesn't mean that it wasn't well-written, well-researched, and well-fucked up. It was, seriously. Even though nothing ever really gave me that holy-shit moment, it kept me fully intrigued in finding out just how crazy these people were. So, while it wasn't all that I was hoping, I am definitely not completely disappointed and definitely curious to see what else Gillian Flynn can throw at me.
