Why did I love this book?
I love Flynn’s visceral style and this book blows me away every time I read it. The survivor of a brutal childhood trauma, protagonist Libby Day has a sardonic, hard-edged voice that sucks you in while also ringing clear and true. As a writer and a reader, I strongly identify with that voice and with Flynn’s style. The brisk pacing, clever turns of phrase, and hard-hitting descriptions make this an intense read.
