THE GROWNUP

Author:  Gillian Flynn
Genre:  Thriller, Standalone Short Story
Published:  2014 (under different title)
Personal Rating:  3.5/5 (good)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Julia Whelan
Yearly Count:  17
(Goodreads counts this as a book)


A woman with unsavory skills gets wrapped up in a family's drama.

So, I didn't like the basic topic at all -- for many reasons.  However, I do like Flynn's writing and did get wrapped up in the story.

  1. I like Flynn's style too - I'd probably give this a try.

  2. I've been wondering about this one! I liked Gone Girl (a lot), but wasn't impressed with Sharp Objects. This one's so short, I could probably read it rather quickly.

    1. Les ~ This was apparently in a short story collection. However, Goodreads counts it as a book, so I want my numbers to match. :) I thought Sharp Objects was good (3.5/5).
