The Grownup

A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the "psychic" visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan's terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan's teenage stepson, doesn't help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it.The Grownup, originally appeared as What Do You Do? in George R. R. Martins Rogues anthology....

The Grownup Reviews

  • Jen

    Flynn, you definitely know how to lure in a reader. Full shock value obtained in the opening page with the whole hand job introduction. I was unaware you could get carpal tunnel syndrome from giving too many although I guess any "job" comes with its occupational hazards.

    This story isn’t about hand jobs though. It’s a little twister that involves some creepy characters and a plot that just isn't deep enough. I need a longer story, Flynn!

    VERY GOOD AND CREEPY MUCH WOW

  • Maxwell

    It takes some serious skill to write a story that is so layered and has such well-developed characters in only 65 pages. But leave it to Gillian Flynn to do it. I loved this modern take on the classic haunted house story. It's messed up and so well executed. She's really great at creating voices that are identifiable and confidently written. Once again I'm out of Flynn material to read. Can't wait for whatever she comes up with next.

    The Grownup

    Who knew Gillian Flynn had such a great sense of humor? The first 15 pages or so of The Grownup are so hilarious and made me laugh so hard I thought that alone justified the $2.99 I paid for the story!

    The story is breezy, funny and just a little bit spooky. I am big fan of Flynn's writing and love her capacity to entertain the reader while exploring very dark stories and characters.

    But The Grownup shows a more humorous side of Flynn than anything I'd read from her in the past.

    Gillian Flynn does it again!

    The Grownup was written in a completely different vein from what I had expected, given the genre of her other books. One thing that did remain the same, though, was that she manages to shock and misdirect her readers page after page!

    This follows the story of an unnamed sex-worker-turned-phony-physic and her bid to help a family plagued by a haunted house and a crazed step-son.

    The story begun in a hilarious fashion and I warmed to the uncouth yet honest and likable pro

    1 "this short story is the biggest scam and piece of crap" stars.

    2016 Book I was most afraid to Hate (Runner Up)

    This book f'in infuriated me!

    Some of you know I was not a big fan of Gone Girl (2.5 star read). Not badly written but ridiculous.

    Yesterday we were in Indigo bookstore and they were selling this little piece of doo-doo for $12.99.

    Can you f'in believe it?

    This is the biggest sociopathic money-grab I've seen in publishing.

    I read this in 25 minutes and I borrowed it from the library.

    I really didn't think I was going to bother with this one.

    The very first description I saw was:

    "Gillian Flynn’s Edgar Award-winning homage to the classic ghost story, published for the first time as a standalone."

    After reading that description I wasn't all that interested. However, after reading a few reviews that piqued my interest I thought ah it's only 60ish pages long. What's the harm?

    I think if I hadn't known it was a short story when I bought it, I may have been a little ticked off....ma

    Audiobook....freebie from the library....

    Having 'zero' knowledge or information about this book...I downloaded it...

    only remembering that I saw it around on Goodreads. I couldn't even remember how people rated it, let alone what it's about.

    If the start of this book doesn't catch your attention, no book will.

    I was crackin-up...walking on the trail... ( hoping nobody could hear what I was

    listening too).
