What can I say except I love reading either by listening to books when am exercising or reading an e book when I have time to sit and relax.There are so many wonderful stories out there and never seem to have enough hours to listen to or read them!

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Story

    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.
