Flynn is amazing at writing the dark side of human nature. I think that all 3 books were worth a read, as her story coupled with the narration is always captivating. I think that Gone Girl is the best of the three, followed by Dark Places, then Sharp Objects. What I love about her writing in her first two novels is her ability to keep you guessing- I know that the killer is --- oh, but maybe it could be---???- just entertaining all the way through.
If you're looking for a horror story with plenty of twists, this is the book for you. It can get a bit graphic at times in relation to sex and violence, so if you have a weak stomach don't read this. Somewhat similar tone as Gone Girl, but much creepier. Read at your own risk!
I am the Evil Mama
After listening to the first 3 hours of this book I was wondering where it was going and ended up fastforwarding to the last hour. Unfortunately for the book, I really didn't feel I'd missed anything and I actually liked the ending, so I decided to go middle of the road for the review, but I have to advise if you find your mind drifting, fast forward to the last hour like I did.
I've listening to Gone Girl and Dark Places. LOVED both novel for their story and the vocal performance. However, this book was kind of a let down. I'd suggest the other 2 book to anyone to read and not this one. The characters were not nearly as interesting as her other books.The story felt too predictable and often drawn out.
Love Gillian Flynn. I'd listen to another book gladly. Just was disappointed with this one.
