So, I finally decided to read this book that everyone has been talking about since it was first published. I have to admit, as cliche’ as it sounds, it did in fact, live up to all the hype. It was absolutely riveting. I haven’t been so absorbed in a book in a long time. The visualization while I read was extremely vivid, as it was set in a small Missouri town much like the one I work in daily. It even had a character with my first name, Noelle, which is quite unusual. So, you’ve got my attention, Ms. Flynn. Your book was pretty awesome. I’ll be waiting for your next novel. In the mean time, I need to read Sharp Objects.
