The narrator was wonderful, I loved being told this story.
As the critics said, the book is an amazing history lesson told through the lives of characters with great depth. The story remains with me.
It was beautifully and bravely written.
The voice of the mother, who is the narrator and main protagonist was sad and strong and honest.
Coleen Marlo was incredible—as though she'd written the book herself.
What a wonderful protagonist! The female characters are a little one-dimensional but great flawed man-heros. The story is nearly impossible to put down.
Just the title "Sharp Objects" is brilliant. Gillian Flynn's protagonist Camille Preaker is human and knowable despite the fact that she is your basic beautiful, tragic figure. Camille's "cutting" serves as a unique and literal pathway to her pathology. She's a great character and the combination of her smart, funny, attractiveness and her excruciating self-loathing and shame make the suspense of the central mystery all the more unbearable. Great read and read well!
I love Kellerman, bt this was not one of my favorites. I found it a bit hard to follow and didn't care that much about the characters. Usually his victims and their friends and family are more sympathetic. Still, it was a good read.
