Summary:

WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart
Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psych 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.

NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg
Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.

HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle
As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims-a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.

With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

    Writing was good, narration was good - but I did not like the book - I don't like to see so much darkness with really no light.

    Crazy twist. Loved the narration - couldn’t have been better. I read Gone Girl and knew I wanted to read this one. I’m buying the Dark Places book too. It did drag a little in the middle. But overall very suspenseful and well written. Would highly recommend!

    This book was sooooo good. What a freaking twist! The narrator was very good and she honestly made every description in this book come to life. On the the next Gillian Flynn book!

  • Erika T

    I loved the narration The story line a bit too convoluted to be believable Worth no more than 3 stars

  • Connie R

    Too much blasphemy for me. Suspense was riveting.

    Riveting! Flynn's supple prose and fresh, insightful use of metaphor keep the somber events of the story afloat while embracing the muddiness of human intent and family dynamics. A complex mystery unfurls elegantly, and maintains suspense through to the last few pages.
