    I've never read a book like this before. It's an incredible thriller that makes you think about families, mental health, and the darkest episode of SVU you've ever seen. I read this in a day and wished I had more of it to read. Please do yourself a favor and read this immediately - if not sooner. ...

    I completely agree with a previous reviewer who said, "[the book] opens with thirty-something Kate setting aflame the hair of her step-father's mistress Gillian. It's possible the least fucked-up thing to happen in the novel."This book is not for the faint of heart, but it's a good one. I would take...

    This novel. I bought it this afternoon, intending to read it over the next few days, but after the first few chapters, there was no way I was putting it down until it was finished. The female characters in it are so sharply realized -- so complex, brilliant and monstrous and sympathetic all at once,...

    I was standing and reading on the NYC subway, as I neared the ending chapters of this dark literary mystery. My mouth hung open and I had to close the book and close my eyes to think and retrace the story-lines after encountering Ms. Sullivan's deeply clever twist.What a joy it was to find that the ...

    full review here: http://www.shelfstalker.net/blog/foll...This is a dark, entangling, deeply unsettling sort of book. The type that digs gritty fingernails deep into your skin, your very bones, and doesn’t let go, not even after you’re finished reading. The main thrust of the plot follows ...

    I'd never liked books of this style, the confusing, breathless narration that pushes the reader forward whether they like it or not. But this book changed my perspective entirely. I'm shocked this is Sullivan's first novel and I think we can stop crying for Gillian Flynn wannabes and instead embrace...

    This book was certainly one that makes you consider the dark secrets we all hold. Initially I thought this might be about the inside mind of a serial killer and although it was, it was about so much more than that. It was about how that mindset is cultivated and ultimately the impact such small ripp...

    Follow Me Into the Dark opens with thirty-something Kate setting aflame the hair of her step-father’s mistress Gillian. It’s possibly the least fucked-up thing to happen in the novel. In 2013 Felicia C. Sullivan wrote a memoir about her childhood. I’ve not read the book but if the blu...

    Follow Me Into the Dark reminded me of a lot of other books; a merging of Fall on Your Knees and Sharp Objects in particular, though I never felt like Sullivan managed to bring her novel fully into its own space. Perhaps my largest problem with the book is that the characters are chaotic but largely...

    4.75 starsHello darkness! I was drawn to this book because of the mention of a Doll Collector in the synopsis, but I shouldn't have enjoyed this book! The pace of this story was relaxed, but the writing style was a bit choppy and the shift between POVs was confusing at times. Somehow, this book slow...
