AN HBO® LIMITED SERIES STARRING AMY ADAMS

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.

Brilliant twists

This being the third novel I've read by Gillian Flynn, I have to admit each story wins me over even more than the last. I always love to think I have a story figured out by page 4 but with so many twists in the plot, and not in a deus ex machina fashion, she keeps me guessing until quite literally the very last page. Her characters and plot lines have such a refreshing complexity for modern novels--I can't get enough!

Her earlier work, but still good

I have read all 3 if Gillian Flynn's books available on iTunes, and although this one was probably my least favorite, that doesn't mean it isn't good.....it's just that Gone Girl and Dark Places are really, REALLY good. I'd give Sharp Objects a 6, Dark Places a 7 1/2 and Gone Girl a 9. Gillian Flynn just keeps improving THAT much from book to book. This book is a shorter novel than I prefer, and it definitely has some character plots that go undefined, but, all in all, a great read. Now go read Gone Girl!

Good ending

I figured it out before I was half way through but was intrigued enough to keep reading.
