Sharp Objects: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Gillian Flynn

Narrated By: Ann Marie Lee

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: September 2006

Duration: 9 hours 30 minutes




Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, 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 in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

    This was a great book. Kept me listening and intrigued as to what was next. The ending was crazy and exciting. Excellent read!

    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.

    Dark and boring. I gave it 1 star because I do like the authors books but this one was not good.

    Camille has some serious issues. She is a reporter that is assigned to a story about a murder in her old home town. She is not only mentally disturbed and cuts her self, She is nasty as a perverted truck driver that needs to get laid. Sorry bout her luck. I had a hard time listening to her desperate sexual desires and her mental issues. I'm no Sherlock but I had it figured out fairly early. That was the best part of the story (who did it). Just didn't care for the s***** Camille who is an alcoholic. What a depressing character!

    I liked the book initially, a few pages. Then I wasn’t sure if this was a criminal, horor or erotically charged horrory ( maybe not a word) story. The twist at the end didn’t make sense to me. What was the moral of it? Cutting oneself off is an illness, this is not a thing to be glamorized by any means, books or a movie. What about the other two girls who helped Emma killing by struggling!!! Not one but to girls? Mother monster? Unbelievable that a publisher published a book like that. It sickens the youngsters. Don’t you see it?

    This book was very dark and almost crossed my threshold. It did hook me, I wanted to know the finish but it was so dark, to the end. Absolutely no ....uplifting... part...whatsoever so be warned

    Sick, and deranged but hard to put down. Guess the saying "it doesn't fall far from the tree" is right because that girl and her mother........just read the book, (I don't wanna give it all away). Gillian Flynn did it again.

    This was SO GOOD! it's my second novel by Gillian Flynn and I absolutely loved it. It was easy to get in to and difficult to put down. I even listened on my 10 minute coffee breaks because I just had to know what was going to happen next. A few things were a little typical for this style of novel, which is a shame, but that doesn't really take away anything from the story as a whole. I think the narrator did a good job bringing the story and characters to life and would like to recommend this book to anyone looking to experience some of the darker aspects of the human mind.

    Love Gilliam Flynn’s creepy novels. Saw the show and then had to check out the book to see how it compares. It doesn’t disappoint.


    Very slow and the narrator made it seem even more so. Story was ok but dragged on. Narrator sounded like Siri or a GPS navigator.
