  1. I don t even know what to say I regret reading two of Flynns books back to back I feel like I need therapy now.


  2. OMG I have read all three of these novels by Gillian Flynn and I must say that they are some of the best stories I ve read in my life First of all, I accidentally read them in reverse starting with Gone Girl, then Dark Places and Sharp Objects, but if I had to list an order of my favorite to least favorite it would be Gone Girl Can t wait for the movie , Sharp Objects which I finished today and then Dark Places It s hard to write good reviews without spoilers so I ll just be as basic and brief a [...]


  3. Started July 23rd 2014 with Dark Places as Sharp Objects might be the BOTM August 2014 read of the Group Psychological Thrillers.Hopefully I will have finished Dark Places until then.Well, Sharp Objects did not become the BOTM read But I finished Dark Places July 30th, 2014 Nearly tl dr The different POVs where expertly concluded, with me guessing the whole time what might have happened at the night of the massacre and guessing wrong mostly The twists up to the conclusion where pure genius.Solid [...]


  4. This book was dark and very troubling, but I enjoyed it A little disappointed at the end, but still happy I read it At multiple points in the book I wondered how it was possible that a story like this occurs in someone s imagination.


  5. This is Gillian Flynn s chilling debut novel, set in the small suffocating town of Wind Gap Camille returns to her home town on a journalistic assignment to cover two child murders for her Chicago paper The penetrating descriptions of the town and its inhabitants create an atmosphere at once surreal and menacing However the chief success of the book lies in the exploration of destructive family relationships Flynn has a talent for injecting unease into her narratives, never allowing her readers [...]


  6. These books do not have bad plot lines they are actually quite creative and each could have lent itself to a novel that was truly above bar However, both books entirely fall apart in the delivery Sorry GF, but the writing just isn t there in either story I d definitely give Sharp Objects the edge between the two, but I could have lived without ever picking either up.


  7. I loved both of these novels I preferred Sharp Objects, as I can understand addiction so could better relate to Camille Preaker I had to devour these books as did not want to stay in the dark places too long All her books are twisted, and even when I thought I knew whodunit I was mistaken Not light hearted reading, but absolutely fabulous



  8. Whew Both of these are so dark but still, excellent reads I didn t figure out the whodunit on Dark Places.


  9. I tried to give these books a 3.5 rating, but apparently that isn t possible I enjoyed Sharp Objects , although when I reflect upon them both, I think the plot and twists of Dark Places are better Maybe because I read them back to back and was getting tired of Flynn s uber dysfunctional families Flynn really is a master of the psychological thriller, with evocative writing that backs up her Byzantine plots.


  10. SHARP OBJECTS Well flew through the book, very readable and fast paced But also very dark, not for the faint hearted me In desperate need of a Disney fix if I m to have any chance of sleeping tonight Preferred Gone Girl, as it was polished and slick.


  11. Very disappointed with this book I picked it up with high expectations as I enjoyed Gone Girl so much The mystery in this story was very easy to guess and the characters were easy to care about.





  12. Gone Girl her best I was not overly fond of Sharp Objects in the least Just didn t have the climatic tone Gone Girl and Dark Places did.





  13. I LOVED all 3 books so much I can t decide which is my favorite I read Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, then Dark Places I want to say my gut feeling is that Sharp Objects is my favorite out of the 3 Dark Places is definitely the most dark, in my opinion Gillian is one of my favorite authors and I can t wait for her to come out with another book


  14. Sharp ObjectsI don t think there s a single person in Sharp Objects who isn t seriously screwed up, and I don t mean run of the mill screwed up I mean these people have problems Make you want to put the book down and walk away problems The book isn t really about the mystery I had that figured out round about chapter two The killer was my second choice, by the way, because the red herring was just believable I mean, sure, I can follow who the killer is from a plot logic point of view, but it s [...]


  15. I read both separately, not jointly bound as a collection, which I liked better Both psychologically engaging, and I think do when separated, as they contain very different stories and characters I reviewed Dark Places separately, so I will briefly respond to Sharp Objects Probably one of the strongest and most intriguing group of characters I have ever read There is so much depth to each of them However, this is the most graphic Flynn novel by far, and many times I felt sick to my stomach Alth [...]


  16. This starts off captivating the reader into the life of Camille and her relatable character Camille is a journalist of a small time paper and is sent back to her hometown, when it appears that their maybe a serial killer on the loose killing little girls The weird thing about the string of murders is that the children are not sexually abused, their teeth are pulled and then they are strangled to death Also the first two murders are over a year apart.Because it is a small town, the people who liv [...]


  17. This book , this book is crazy I loved every minute of it It goes down deep, you get into the nitty gritty of marriage It shows that you might truly not know someone Its based on a kidnapping for which the husband is blamed for of course Don t they always suspect the husband After all they are the ones who are suppose to know their wife the best Every time I thought I had figured something out in this book, I was wrong, or misguided There s a lot of twists and I for sure thought I knew what this [...]


  18. All three books were fast paced and filled with evil that is unimaginable I appreciated that they weren t formulaic in that by the third, there were still surprises One thing that really aggravated me were a couple of glaring to me mistakes that probably someone not from Missouri wouldn t notice in Dark Places, one character in Kansas City told another to drive west on I70 to Columbia That would be a drive east Then in Sharp Objects, the FBI guy was brought in from Kansas City if you re in the b [...]


  19. Luckily I read Gone Girl first, and I did like it very much It was so fresh and mind boggling After reading Sharp Objects and then starting and refusing to continue Dark Places, my opinion is that Flynn was ramping up to the quality of Gone Girl The characters in Sharp Objects were just simply unbelievable, and I found myself very upset with the choices Camille was making Hard to be sympathetic towards her, but I figured I should soldier on and finish it Ending was supposed to be surprising, I g [...]


  20. I Read Sharp Objects first followed by Dark Places I really liked Sharp Objects, and I liked Dark Places but for some reason found it harder to get through than Sharp Objects and Gone Girl I didn t like the premise as much I guess, and the animal cruelty was sickening I understand it fueled the story line, but it was really hard to read and I m not squeamish I guess when it comes to murder I m OK but senseless animal cruelty murder I m not Not sure what that says about ME though The story in bot [...]


  21. Sharp Objects is really creepy, though I liked Gone Girl better In SO, Camille is a beginning newspaper reporter in Chicago, sent home to the small farming town she was brought up in, to get facts about the murders of two young teen girls Camille has a problem with cutting herself, and once we get to know her family she stays with as she tries to find clues to the mysteries, we begin to realize something is seriously wrong with Camille s family and the people in her old home town It s a very dar [...]


  22. Gillian Flynn shot into our lives through Gone Girl It took me forever but in the end, I did jump on the bandwagon I enjoyed it right up until the end The ending to the book was a disappointment for me Wanting to see if her two other books would have a satisfying ending I picked them up when I found them on offer Unfortunately, these books had the same effect upon me.In short, I find Gillian Flynn wonderful right up until the end As it stand, though, she has yet to write an ending I m completel [...]


  23. Gillian Flynn is by far my favorite author Her characters all have a darkness to them, which I find much engaging than reading about pristine, unrealistic characters She always adds twists and turns to her writing, making her books absolute page turners Gone Girl, Dark Places, and Sharp Objects, are all so real and raw I hope she writes books, in the future, because I will be sure to buy them
