I am a sucker for crime stories – fiction or non-fiction and all the drama, the mystery and investigation that surrounds it. I loved Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, so this next book, Dark Places, wasn’t a tough choice for me. Like Gone Girl, I couldn’t put this book down until the very last page. I kept my weekend free, just to finish this book!
While the book is a very interesting read, I (unfortunately) keep comparing it to Gone Girl- for obvious reasons. In short, this book is very interesting with loads of mystery but does not supersede Gone Girl.
By the way, this book was on the ‘Crime’ shelf at Dymocks. Not the fiction shelf.
