Beschreibung

A young woman is making a living faking it as a cut-price psychic (with some illegal soft-core sex work on the side). She makes a decent wage mostly by telling people what they want to hear. But then she meets Susan Burke.

Susan moved to the city one year ago with her husband and 15-year-old stepson Miles. They live in a Victorian house called Carterhook Manor. Susan has become convinced that some malevolent spirit is inhabiting their home. The young woman doesn't believe in exorcism or the supernatural. However when she enters the house for the first time, she begins to feel it too, as if the very house is watching her, waiting, biding its time . . .

The Grownup, which originally appeared as 'What Do You Do?' in George R. R. Martin's Rogues short story anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world's most original and skilled voices in fiction.

A bit thrown off by the opening but then absolutely loved it..

I didn't know anything going into this and to be honest, I was a bit thrown off by the opening. But after going back to the beginning after a couple of sentences I absolutely loved it because of the sarcastic narrative tone. Up until 2/3 in the story was great.

But after going back to the beginning after a couple of sentences I absolutely loved it because of the sarcastic narrative tone. Up until 2/3 in the story was great. It was sharp and had just the right amount of creep and not knowing what could or would happen next to all the characters. But then the first plot twist happend.. and then it was plot-twisted out of itself (I don't even know if this is a valid expression?) and twisted once more leading up to a pretty anticlimactic ending after which I didn't know what or who to believe anymore - in itself this concept is totally fine with me, but because this is such a short story, there was at least one twist too many for my liking.

Zwar hat mich die Größe anfangs etwas irritiert, aber der Vorteil bei einem kleinen und dünnen Buch ist, dass es in selbst die winzigste Handtasche passt. Allerdings hat mir die Geschichte nicht sonderlich gut gefallen, da sie doch sehr langweilig und auch ein wenig sinnlos ist. Wer jedoch eine etwas originellere Kurzgeschichte lesen oder ein hübsches Buch im Regal stehen haben möchte, dem empfehle ich dieses Produkt weiter.
