Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn – Book Review Week 14

Sharp Objects

I don’t know what made me read Sharp Objects. Gone Girl wasn’t as good as I thought it was going to be so I hadn’t planned on reading another Gillian Flynn novel.
I’d already bought it though because the blurb on the back appealed to me. I’m glad I gave it a go as I really enjoyed it.

As soon as I’d finished this book, I went and bought Dark Places and started reading it straight away!

I didn’t see the twist coming at the end. I thought I’d got is sussed about three-quarters of the way through but I was totally wrong!

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

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.

    It’s always good when you don’t see the ending coming 🙂 #readwithme

    I liked Gone Girl and Dark Places but I hated this one! I found the self-harm to be quite uncomfortable reading and whilst I’m sure that it was a fair portrayal it made it challenging reading for me! #readwithme

    I loved Sharp Object so much! I really liked Gone Girl, but I liked Sharp Objects even more. Like you, I went straight on to Dark Places, which was my least favourite of the three books.

    I love it when I’m wrong about the twist in a story. It adds a real wow factor to a book for me 🙂 I’ll look out for this one, thanks for a great review.

    I was a bit underwhelmed by Gone Girl too but this does sound good.

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
