I would recommend this to someone that enjoys thrillers and mysteries. It was well written and narrated. There are some twisted aspects to the story, but I think that's what a fan of thrillers enjoys and expects. It didn't rely on gruesome scenes to tell the story or add intrigue. It's more of a mind tangling type of thriller than a gross thriller. Gillian Flynn did not disappoint.
Good Narrator and interesting story
I think the author has some similar types out there. Different stories of course but have the same feel. They keep your interest.
Good book. Was excited to read more by this author.
I love well written books of many different genres.
It's well written and the characters are interesting. I looked forward to listening everyday and never got bored. The ending is a bit implausible with too many coincidences adding up to form the climax. Even so, it is still worth listening to it! The narrator also did a great job!
I felt inclined to write a review upon finishing Sharp Objects. Gone Girl was my first Gillian Flynn read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the style, the story...I couldn't wait to read more. Dark Places was a HUGE disappointment for me, I did not enjoy it at all. I decided to be fair I had to give Sharp Objects a listen as well. After my high expectations for Dark Places were not met I wasn't that excited to begin Sharp Objects. But alas, Gillian Flynn had me addicted to listening again. This was a page turner I couldn't put down. Disturbing yet, but an interesting mystery that had me stumped until the end.
Very dark and disturbing, but very human responses from broken characters. Extremely disturbing at times, but a great story for those that don't mind a view into the dark side once in a while.
It is definitely in the top rankings.
Yes it did..... I was very sassy and sinister. The characters were well thought out and the all flowed so well together.
My favorite scene was towards the end when the main character realized it was her little sister...
Some words should never be spoken and some secrets should never be told.
This book was really good. I was on the fence about getting it and I am so glad that I did.
