Quote of the Day (Gillian Flynn, on Great Thrillers)

“Old-fashioned suspense is more engaging than immediate violence. A great thriller to me is more about creating a sense of unease, a queasiness that comes with knowing something is not quite right. It’s why I love unreliable narrators — there’s something so wonderfully unnerving about realizing midway through a book that you’ve put yourself in the hands of someone who is not to be trusted.”—Gone Girl novelist Gillian Flynn, on what makes a great thriller, in “By the Book” interview, The New York Times Book Review, May 11, 2014
