“People want passion. People want a sense of purpose. And when they get those things, then they come back to you because you predicted their future, and it was good.”
THE GROWNUP by Gillian Flynn is a very well-written short story about a woman who learned to make the most out of her hard life. Her shrewd determination is a result of living outside of the box to make ends meat. She is a con artist who evolved into a prostitute which led to impersonating a psychic. She is extremely observant and finds humor in the most bizarre situations.
Gillian Flynn is brilliant with her prowess as a master of creative stories. She easily manipulates her readers to fall in love with idiosyncratic characters. This modern-day ghost story is no different. It is a great book for a quick read while waiting in the doctor’s office, commuting on a bus, or lounging by the pool. Either way, the unique delivery of twisted plots and wittiness will keep your interest while you try to guess what is going to happen next.
I definitely recommend giving this short modern-day ghost story a read. It’s uniquely entertaining.
