I just read a novel that has gotten a LOT of buzz--GONE GIRL by Gillian Flynn. Co-workers at TKE have liked it, and I raced through 3/4 of the book, completely gone on it. I was like, you know, a gone girl. Flynn is a truly accomplished writer and a slick plotter. But the last 1/4 of the book was so disturbing in its implications and (even) execution, that I started wishing I could rinse my brain out with mouthwash after I finished it.
Has a novel ever affected you that way? Left you with images you wish you could get rid of?
