I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
This was a great book!! The first book I read was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I loved this book was excellent the naraator was perfect. Talk about a family needing therapy!! I loved it.
Raw Creepy Smart
My favorite character was the narrator, Camille. Gillian Flynn's portrayal of the flawed heroine was both alluring and revolting at the same time. As an outsider in her own hometown, the contrast of closeness versus remoteness created a unnerving and unsettled tone throughout the story.
This was one of my favorite audiobooks so far. I really enjoy the author and have listened ot all three of her books. I narration was right on with no cheesy accents! I would recommend this book to others!
The ending of Gillian Flynn's books are always memorable!
I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 30 years. I love reading - romance, adventure... Captain Blood is really great!
I really like the audio book - it makes it exciting to hear the book read aloud
All the characters are deep and have their own agendas -- dual lives seem to be the norm
It's toward the end when the main character is talking with her mother - letting her mother take care of her
In a small town, not everyone is who they pretend to be
Check List for listening to “Sharp Objects”
1. Watch some comedies on TV or look at LOL Cats website – you need the balance.
2. Play with puppies or roll around in the yard. Release some of the angst that you will feel.
As one other reviewer stated – there weren't any characters that I rooted for. Lots of crazy women who crave attention and need to get out more.
I will continue to listen to Ms. Flynn’s novels. She is a good writer. Ann Marie did a good job on narration.
After reading and loving Gone Girl, I bought the audio version of one of Flynn's previous novels, Sharp Objects. At first, it seemed like a standard mystery (a reporter goes back to her home town to cover a story on a missing child and a possible series of child killings). The book is well written with good characters. Slowly, we discover that the protagonist (Camille) returns to her old home bearing much emotional baggage from her difficult childhood. The novel is called Sharp Objects because Camille has spend many years of her life cutting words into her skin. This novel smartly mixes mystery with the unraveling of Camille's past, with a little romance mixed it. The reader is very good. The first person narrative from the perspective of a "cutter" is a bit creepy. I liked the character but was repulsed, too. While this novel does not compare to Gone Girl (5 stars from me), Sharp Objects kept my interest throughout.
I didn't like this book quite as much as Flynn's other two, but it's definitely worth a listen. There are some unexpected twists and turns and the story is definitely engaging.
It kept me guessing
Yes, this one is as brilliant as the past listens
I could not stop listening
Top 5, for sure, which includes Gone Girl, another Gillian Flynn book.
So dark and twisting, its like trying to find your way out of a sealed cardboard box.
The first time you realize how the title came about.
Pointless family runs skin deep (?)
No, just because she twists and turns her reader, still too predictable.
A non crazy character to follow.
Fine, audible, unremarkable
I was recommended this book, and was disappointed because as in her Gone Girl book, everyone is nuts. No normal, or even likeable characters.
