    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

    What made the experience of listening to Sharp Objects the most enjoyable?

    I like everyone having a voice and I enjoy listening while I'm doing other things.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    i just love the way flynn writes. It's intelligent and attainable. I guess perhaps the narration helps to solidify the characters traits and demnor, but the dialogue keeps me interested. Particularly, in this story, the back handed, back stabbing and snidenss that the townees exchange and are involved in - remind me of home. The cattiness and clickiness of 'those' girls and the women that raised them.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to listen to Dark Places. If it's half as good as Gone Girl (my first Flynn novel) and this, Sharp Objects, I'm hooked!

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but the audio was excellent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I thought this book had many humerous moments. I most identified with "Go's" character, her humor, and would send my fiance quotes of the day. I think overall, though, each character took some unexpected turns and I was surprised to see the Slim Shady - you know? I was absolutely hooked until the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I didn't like about listening to the book, was that it was hard to 're-read' parts that I enjoyed. Like Go's comments. It got annoying trying to go back and listen. A book would have been nice to highlight those lines.
