Book Review - The Grownup by Gillian Flynn
I received this short story (just 62 pages!) by Gillian Flynn from Book of the Month Club as a Happy New Year gift. This was the perfect afternoon to cuddle up indoors (Chicago is frigid right now) with a cup of hot cocoa and a good ghost story. When I was only posting #HastyBookList on Instagram, I often received comments from friends like this one, "I love how many books you read. I enjoy the pleasure of finishing books vicariously through your reviews." (Thanks Caitlyn!) Well if you don't have time to read very often, this is the book to choose! It is satisfyingly mysterious and you can finish it in about an hour....or longer, no judgment here!
The Grownup is about a psychic who is hired to help a woman who fears her house is haunted and her step-son is possessed. At first glance, Susan appears to be a beautiful, wealthy woman who is perhaps bored with her life and in need of some drama. But when the psychic and narrator of the story visits Susan's Victorian home, she realizes she no longer needs to pretend that she believe in ghosts.
