Synopsis

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

disturbing and captivating
April 11th, 2015
Flynn demonstrates the violence in a small town perpetrated by men, women, boys, and girls. I found this book disturbing but also captivating since Flynn makes her characters so real you feel that you could call them on the phone.

Oh how can you not love this book. This book has made Gillian Flynn my favorite authors by far. It was suspensful, sexy, smart, and dark. I literally could not stop reading until i found out everything. I strongly reccomend this read.

Sharp Objects
March 13th, 2015
This book is another brilliant masterpiece by Jillian Flynn. I could not stop reading from the very first page. The characters in this book are the rawest yet. My advice is dont read this book before bed or you will have a sleepless night filled with terror and nightmares.

Spine tingler right to the end
February 14th, 2015
Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt share a genius for exposing the raw underbelly of life in America, especially in the Deep South. Sharp Objects is aptly named, as Flynn's diction and narrative arc are razor-sharp and cutting. The denouement is breath-taking, painful and not neat. Suggestion: Do not read this book at night if you seek a restful sleep! 10/10 for Flynn's novel.

Glorios Southern Gothic

Just finished this thriller, which I galloped through in less than 2 days. What an elegant and fiendish imagination Flynn has! She carves her words onto the reader's psyche. Definitely *Not* a soothing choice for bedtime reading at night.

Disappointed with Ending
January 10th, 2015
I enjoy her writing. She gets all her theories out there and ties them altogether, however having read 2 of her books, I may not bother with the 3rd. Both of the books I have read, have very disappointing endings, leaving the reader wondering why she went with the ending that she did. I will wait awhile before I read her 3rd book, in case it has the same type of ending. The ending of both these books left me a little depressed with the characters - they had come so far throughout the story to revert back to the same character they started as, in the beginning.

Murder mystery realistic outcome
December 23rd, 2014
The outcome of this book leaves you troubled and delightfully satisfied with the way it comes full circle. The way Flynn creates these broken characters is both disturbing and artiful. Honestly, if your looking for a page turner that leaves you feeling like your family is a ray of sunshine then this book is for you.
