However, it is Flynn's brilliant debut novel... therefore everyone MUST love it.
If you like the gore and psychological thriller element of Gone Girl you will LOVE this! However if you hated the 'creepy' or 'sexual' bits of Gone Girl do.not.read.this.book.
(But maybe try Dark Places as that is brilliant too- just not as incestuous/creepy.)
Sharp Objects follows journalist Camille's journey pack to her home town where she has to report on two mysterious murders. However, Camille doesn't just delve into the stories she is reporting on, but has to face her dark past too.
P.S: The book contains a few sharp objects.
Sharp Objects is a complete page turner, I'd find myself cringing at about 20 pages of it at time, but was still glued to the bloody thing and had to find out ...
- what was going to happen next
- what went on in Camille's past
- who the murderer was
- why the WORDS!! (You'll see what I mean sorry for the teaser...
when did this all happen(I didn't really wonder that, I just felt the urge to complete the A Level who/what/when/why structure- ever the faithful student.)
I'd be eating my cereal thinking 'I need to read Sharp Objects now!' If that's not a sign of a well-written 'who dunnit' I don't know what is. (I mean interrupting food time- shocking stuff.)
If your an over-reader like me you'll love the female characters and re-evaluation of feminism/female stereotypes. (If you read it and notice this stuff please message me so we can geek out about it!)
However I have to warn you-read with caution! This book will get under your skin stay with you long after you read it!
Over all a well-written and hauntingly addictive read! Highly recommend.
