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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    Book was very dark. So many dark characters, so much evil. Definitely not a feel good story. Narrator was excellent at times but on a few occasions it was difficult to know what character was talking. Found it hard to keep track of what happened to whom and was getting the names mixed up, I started watching the HBO series to help me keep it straight without spoiling the book as the episodes ran behind what I was reading. As soon as I finished the book, I stopped watching. Just too much!

    Now THIS was interesting! I would say it's a fresh take on domestic thrillers, but it was written before they became really popular, so I'll just say that for me, this is how they should be done. It's far superior to many of the domestic thrillers oversaturating the market right now. A compelling take on the female psyche not often written about, this book was filled with terrible characters doing terrible things, but I could not stop reading until the twisted end.

    good book...took awhile to get interesting but dark and if that's your thing, you will like this story. Narrator was very good...believable in multiple roles that she voiced.
