After falling a little in lvoe with Gillian Flynn's writing, I decided that perhaps thrillers are the way forward in terms of my reading bucket list for this summer. I'm usually all about the chick flicks: whilst doing my degree I wanted something easy to flick through whilst studying the likes of Stein, Shakespeare and other tricky reads. This book was really intriguing, and led me through the process of realising that you never know someone as well as you think you do. So, if you want your beliefs challenged and judgement parameters widened, pick up this beauty.
