There are a few phrases that annoy me more than I won’t bite. The only line that pisses me off faster is when some drunk, ham-faced dude in a bar sees me trying to get past him and barks: Smile, it can’t be that bad! Yeah, actually, it can, jackwad.
This book was a little too dark for me at times, but I loved it. Intense, creepy, and a really great thriller, I couldn’t put it down. It’s as good, if not better, than Flynn’s other very popular story, Gone Girl (also unputdownable). I actually thought it’d make a great HBO series, and when I googled the idea, I found this – http://www.bustle.com/articles/43850-dark-places-is-the-next-gillian-flynn-adaptation-youll-obsess-over-so-heres-what-to-know (I’m clearly not the only one dealing with a Gillian Flynn addiction). Looks like another winning adaptation to me. But read the book first. Obviously.
