Very rarely do I get into books that are paranormal or ghost stories but today when I was browsing in Books A Million, I came upon this book “The GrownUp” by Gillian Flynn. I was familiar with some of her other works but this is the very first book that I’ve read by her.
I picked this book up because it was very thin, 65 pages to be exact and I knew I could finish it within an hour which I did.
This book is set in the small town and from the very first page ( very first sentence to be exact) I was hooked. I wont give it away but if you pick up this book, you will see. This female character (come to think of it just having finish the book I don’t think we’re ever given the main characters name) Who does some very unsavory things in the back of the psychic is pressured into conducting some sort of spiritual cleansing of the clients house.
It’s not the house that is crazy it’s the client stepson who wants them all dead. As the story progresses the readers are faced with the question of whether it’s the house or the steps and that is really the main issue. I know short stories have a reputation of having shock endings so that you aren’t left feeling robbed of a full book.
This is a first for me to read a book and then post a review about it in the same day. Usually takes maybe two or three days after I finish a book to get my thoughts in order and write a review. I won’t give the rest of the book away but it’s definitely worth your time to read. If you are looking for one of the scariest or mindbending stories out there then you’ll probably get a lot of joy out of this book. Nothing gory or overly violent, but it is creepy.
I recommend this book I think you should really give it a chance.
My rating: 📖📖📖📖… Highly recommend
