The GrownupThe Grownup by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5/5 ⭐️ Super Fun Read 🎉

Warning: You'll want more!

This little novella (60 something pages) is stunning. If you enjoyed any of Gillian Flynn's other books (I did), you'll be entertained immediately - the first few sentences had me giggling.

The mood is mysterious, rainy fateful mornings, an unnamed anti-hero, and aura readings at Spiritual Palms. Strong female characters. Twist ending.

A sequel in the form of a longer book seems possible. Either way, hopefully there'll be more from Gillian Flynn.

Thoughts: "Hahaha" "Ohhhh snap!!""Thought something was up!!" "... Oh snap again!!"

Reminded me of Dark Matter in some respects. Short, surprising, gripping, fun.


"I would rather be a librarian, but I worry about the job security. Books may be temporary; dicks are forever."

"Feeling sad means having too much time on your hands, usually."

"Empathetic silence is one of the most underused weapons in the world."
