I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review.
This book ranks very close to the top of the list. This is a much better book than Gone Girl and is proof that Ms Flynn is just getting better and better.
There are too many to count. I found myself many times wanting to beg the main character to stop, to think and to walk away.
Ms Lee is an excellent reader. I think her voice, her pacing and the flat affect in her voice are perfect for this character.
This is a compelling book about a character who is not altogether likeable. There are many passages that are difficult to read because the character is in so much pain. Having been a counselor I have seen clients who do the same sef-destructive things over and over, wanting a way out but never managing to break old ways and old habits. I wanted to cry more than once during this book.
What bothered me was the change in narrator's voice. I couldn't tell which person she was trying to be at times. Sometimes it was the SAME character and she would change her voice. It was just confusing..
I like how twisted and dark this book was, and the story was solid but I feel that it unraveled a little too in the predictable side... Worth to listen though.
Love Reading. Especially Audible!
As far as I am concerned, each of Gillian Flynn's books are on a par of their own. This was, I feel, as good or even better then Gone Girl.
I really liked Ann Marie Lee's narration of Sharp Objects. I had never listened to an audio book narrated by her before. I will definitely look for more books she has narrated. I think Gillian Flynn made a smart decision to have Ann Marie narrate her first book and I hope she uses her great talent again. PERFECT NARRATOR!
It didn't make me laugh or cry, but the subject matter was very heavy and deep, so the novel stayed in my thoughts for quite some time. The subject was so thought provoking. The novel was a great "who done it', so it kept me wanting to read more and more. I'd like to read a sequel to Sharp Objects. What will happen in Camille's life in the future?
Just really loved the book so much. Waiting anxiously for Gillian Flynn's next book after Gone Girl.
Crazy thriller. Loved it . More disturbing and frightening than Gone Girl. Must read
Another stellar first book from Gillian Flynn .......
How the author continues to leave me mouth gaping shocked by some of the plot and context.
Gillian Flynn definitely knows how to write some messed up books. But th y sure are a great read/listen that leaves you wanting more.
