After reading Gone Girl by Flynn which I really liked decided to buy another of her books. This one was disappointing. The story was long,tedious and the descriptions were gruesome . You don't feel sorry for Libby Day, the main character because she is unlikeable. Her brother Ben is more sympathetic but his reasons for protecting his lover seem somewhat lame when he is accused of killing his own family. All the rest of the characters in Dark Places seem degenerative and inhuman as well as terribly violent.
The plot gets more convoluted and ridiculous as the story evolves. The reader was excellent and listened to it until the end to find out who were the actual killers. It was disappointing as could not believe Flynn could write such rubbish because Gone Girl was so good I couldn't stop listening to it.
