Synopsis

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

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice" of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

I found this book a very slow read. I really had to push myself to finish it. It did not hold my interest the way Gone Girl did.

terrible
November 3rd, 2015
Undoubtedly one of the worse books I've ever read. Juvenile, boring, badly written. I skipped a lot of pages as the plot was obvious.

Overall i enjoyed this book. I did not enjoy it as much as sharp objects but it was still good. Kept me guess who did it the entire book, didnt see it coming. the characers were well developed. I did feel it was slow at times but i kept reading.

Sharp Objects and Gone Girl were much bette books. Didn't care for the characters and the over all mystery didn't keep me dying to know the truth.

Haunting

"Dark Places" reads like a script for a box-office smash of a thriller. Would have been my pick over "Gone Girl" for Flynn's film debut.

A slow read for me
September 8th, 2015
This wasn't the best book I've read. I found it very slow with lots of jumping between past and present. Three quarters of the way through it became the page-turner I love, and all the past and present finally gelled. It was a frustrating read, for me anyway, until closer to the end.

I am a big fan of thrillers (books and movies included) and am always looking for something that will actually scare me. I was pleasently surprised by this book and had a hard time putting it down. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good thriller!

Page turner!
July 10th, 2015
I loved this book! Ending was definitely not what I expected and it keeps you guessing and making your own scenarios in your head at all times. If you liked Gone Girl, I recommend reading Dark Places. Gillian Flynn, you rock!

Pretty satisfying
April 30th, 2015
Unlike Gone Girl, which ends abruptly and feels like justice had been torn into pieces, Dark Places brings you to a wild goose chase of memories, lies and murder suspects and ultimately leaves you (at least somewhat) satisfied with the outcome. Gillian Flynn enthralls us in the same POV writing style that captured our interest in Gone Girl. I highly recommend this book for murder mystery enthusiasts and fans of Gone Girl.

Dark but amazing
February 4th, 2015
This was the first Gillian Flynn book that I ever read! But even though the content was very dark, I was amazed by her style of writing! Even if you wanted to kick and feel bad for the main character throughout! Definitely a good read though! I recommend you read this, and gone girl! Sharp objects is next for me!
