I would definitely listen to Sharp Objects again not right away but I would definitely listen to it again. It was a great read. It was twisted. It has lots of twists and turns and an unexpected ending.
Hard to say. Every character was seriously twisted.
No. This was my first experience.
I did have a reaction. I didn't laugh or cry. I was a little saddened. Although this book is fiction, it made me sad to learn of the darkness and sadness that some people suffer with.
Gilliam Flynn is an exceptional writer. The story was dark but well written.
NO , I expected more , Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl , was really good , very interesting.
THRILLER! TWISTED! WICKED!
My favorite character was Ama. You never knew what was going on in her crazy little head.
It was slow at times, but by the end I sat in my driveway in order to finish it.
I thought I had the book figured out, but true to form, Gillian Flynn had me fooled. She is an excellent writer and amazing story teller.
I loved Gillian Flynn's other books. And this one did have a lot of the same components, but I just wasn't as surprised, disgusted or horrified (in a good way), the way that I have been with some of her others. The final detail that is revealed at the end re: teeth almost makes up for the rest, but overall, this one just didn't compell me in the same way. Unlikable characters can only stay afloat with a really good storyline and this one was just a little thin. Still a good read, but not great.
I chose this book immediately after listening to Gone Girl! It was another good choice. I thought I had it figured out a couple of times only to be surprised again!
Busy full time student and part-time fitness instructor. I'm a sucker for lattes and wine.
All of Gillian's books are amazing. Not as good as "Gone Girl", but still very entertaining. I hated pausing the story!
Holy crap! This book kept me on the edge of my seat! I couldn't put the audio down. I kept finding reasons to keep listening. It was that good! Think this will have to be on my top 10 of all creepy books published!
I love Gillian Flynns writing. I always am waiting for the next page. I look forward to all of her new books.
The main narrator, Camille, was excellent. As with all Gillian Flynn books, the main characters are flawed and not mainstream, which makes them likable and approachable. You get a real sense of her character, personality, likes and dislikes, and you truly come to see things from her point of view. Very good character development.
It started out a little slowly, and I wasn't sure the direction it was going in, but after about an hour maybe, then YES. I was listening to this at work and was upset when Friday came and I had to leave the audiobook for the WHOLE WEEKEND. It was a terrible weekend, and Monday never looked so good. This author needs to write more than three books so that I may continued to be entertained. All three of her books are equally excellent. Listen to or read all of them right now.
The mother is really creepy, and if there is ever a movie, she obviously needs to be played by Jessica Lange. Imagine Jessica Lange in "American Horror Story" only creepily perfect. That's this lady. Also, I come from Missouri, and Gillian Flynn knows her Missourians.
It's just a lifetime movie with every stereotypical female issue- mother/daughter friction, Munchausen by Proxy, cutting, mean girls, rich girl/poor girl, fat girl/ popular girl- all rolled into one sad story. But- it's at least a well put together story and it's entertaining enough that you listen to the whole thing.
The main character figures things out too slowly, but there's enough going on that you are not bored as you figure them out.
Lazy, cringe worthy. Any dialect is way overdone- all the "girls" sound like cartoon characters, and the men are ridiculous. The main character is so flat- I'm sure if it's supposed to be a reflection of the characters personality- or she just got tired in between character voices, but it doesn't help the story.
It's made to be a Lifetime movie - I'm sure Merideth Baxter will be cast as the mother and Hillary Swank as the main character, with Lindsy Lohan as the pscho little sister.
If you read Gone Girl- and liked it- you will not find this nearly as clever. If you like Lifetime Movies and feel like you haven't seen this one yet- enjoy.
