Before Gillian Flynn was a household name, before she even wrote Gone Girl and way before the success of the movie, author Stephen King said of Flynn’s first book Sharp Objects in 2006, “I found myself dreading the last thirty pages or so, but was helpless to stop turning them.”

Stephen King knows a good book when he reads one. He’s the master of suspense, so a compliment like this from him is super high praise.
