Lori Hines Connolly. I was torn. I gave it a 3. I felt the writing was good and overall the characters were well developed but not really believable. The pace was a little too slow for me, the first half I easily lost interest and forced myself to get back to things. It was depressing... maybe I wasn’t in the right mindset, lol

Kimberly Estep Picklesimer ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Kept me guessing until the very end! I highly recommend watching the min series on HBO, as well. Gillian Flynn worked with the directors and it is perfectly aligned with the book.
