Did you read Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl? Did you love it? Was it because the characters were so darn nice? Just people you’d really like to know in real life and have over for dinner?
It was for the twists and turns, right? The never quite knowing what was really going on? And of course to find out What Really Happened In The End, yes?
Here are more stories with unreliable narrators, stories that will yank the narrative rug out from under your readerly feet in the most delightful and unpredictable of ways.
Con men are sometimes romanticized in literature, and sometimes reviled. The morally ambiguous, ethically grey nature of the con man (or woman) makes him (or her) a compelling antihero, particularly when there is a code of honor underpinning the characters’ wrongdoing. The con man can also feature as the lawful hero’s cunning nemesis or even as a shadow character, an unseen foil that influences the protagonists’ choices and actions throughout the story. From romance to mystery to adventure, these stories will keep you on your toes!
