Yes, if you like dark stories this is another good one from Gillian Flynn.
Its a good example of how mental illness in a family begets mental illness. Its a cycle that continues and continues.
Not at first but after it got going, yes.
This book is disturbing in a lot of ways, but look past that and its a good story. The characters are mostly deplorable, but you want to like them and give them the benefit of the doubt. Camille, the main character, is probably the strongest character but she has deep wounds that have been scantily patched up and going back to the home of her mother and dealing with the murders, the revelations and her horrid sister proves to be her undoing.
I started with Gone Girl and absolutely loved it, as well as Dark Places, so I thought naturally I would enjoy sharp objects. That and most of the reviews are good.
I really did not enjoy this one even from the start but wanted to give it a chance so I finished. I didn't like any of the characters, no one grew on me. The entire story line was not only too unbelievable but also pretty drab most of the time. The ending just made me laugh and shake my head.. Not interestingly ridiculous, just plain ridiculous.
Flynn's writing style, like in all their other books, was very good, but even so I'd tell anyone to skip this one. Not worth my credit
Flynn has a LOT to say about the self-hate and community hate that women experience and the lurid "Midwestern Gothic" style is fascinating, but between this and Gone Girl I think she's just a little too fond of the last chapter stinger.

Yes. I love Gillian Flynn's dark thrillers and writing style. I have nightmares while I'm listening, but it's somehow worth it. I have never read an author with such strong female villain characters.
Creepier than Dark Places, but with similarly interesting prose.
The narrator was easy to follow and used interesting inflection to keep me engaged.
Did a single day read for this one, I liked it enough but I wasn't shocked by the end revelation although I had hoped to be.
Still a good read though.
