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.
