If you want a mystery, a bit darker, Tremblay is a talented writer.
Having read many of the popular fodder types in this genre, I think this is a step ahead and ultimately not as bleak of a novel compared against Gone Girl or Girl on the Train.
Although well written, I had a harder time getting in to this one .. however I think that is more due to the other types of books I am reading than this one itself. Hopefully that distinction makes sense. I am more on a fantasy kick and this one was just way out there compared to what I have been reading.
