An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

I'll Be Gone in the Dark

I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer - Michelle McNamara, Patton Oswalt, Gillian Flynn

I have to start this review by saying that I have never really liked Patton Oswalt, but his tweet about how America is more sexist than it is racist sent me from dislike to hate. His connection to this book combined with the subject matter had me convinced I would never read it. 

 

And then a coworker recommended it to me several times and I had some vacation, so I did end up reading it and now I know that true crime is not the genre for me. The book is very well-written, but honestly so scary. I felt really unsettled for several days after reading it. Just knowing this guy was still out there freaked me out so so much. 

 

I'm writing this review today because today they finally caught the Golden State Killer. Maybe now the many questions the book brings up will be answered.
