This week's topic: Thrillers!
Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
The first part was a slog, but the unreliable narrator kept me hooked. I was not disappointed. I am one of the few people I know who was okay with the ending.
It's not without issues (not getting into that right here), but the characters deserved their fates.
11/22/63 – Stephen King
I am unsure if this technically qualifies as a “thriller”, but it had my adrenaline pumping and I never wanted to set it down.
The series on hulu is pretty fantastic, too. It's both faithful to and different from the book. Enjoyable, but still suspenseful and surprising.
