Sharp Objects Reviews

    ?The face you give the world tells the world how to treat you.? There is something deeply unhealthy about this book. It's in the characters, in the story, in the relationships, in the sex, and just in the general mood of the novel. Reading this made me feel a little unwell, both...

    Last week I read the fuck out of Gillian Flynn's catalog. Three novels in eight days while my wife and kids were out of town and a sweltering late July marooned me in one of the house's two air conditioned rooms. So although this review is primarily for Sharp Objects, my favorite of Fl...

    Little buddy read with Her Majesty La Lionne and Jerry on January 31st!! :D This is my third Gillian Flynn book, after Gone Girl and Dark Places. The first one blew my mind, the second one freaked me out a little and this one really scared me. Sure, after reading 5% of it I was ...

    The razor blade on the front cover of the book is what one yearns for right after embarking on this read, sharp blade with which to cut every single page, one by one, until they are so neatly shredded that even the memory of what was written on them becomes non existent. And then, one ...

    Camille Preaker is a young Chicago reporter with a troubled past. When a second young girl goes missing in her home town, Wind Gap, MO, Camille?s fatherly boss sends her down to get the inside scoop. Who says you can?t go home again? Well, maybe you can, but would you really want t...

    2.5 Stars. Unfortunately, I did not love this book and it is probably my least favorite of Gillian Flynn's work. As this was her debut, I'm happy to say I feel her later works show great improvement and a lot of strength. CW: self-harm, sexualization of children, murder, child abuse...

    *3.5/5* I felt like this book was way too slow paced for how short it was, and it sort of bugged me that the big reveal and explanation was left to the VERY end. It was like nothing nothing nothing BAM EVERYTHING. However, the ending was crazy and twisted and I loved it! I just ...

    Update 10/2018 Doesn't seem that edgy 8 years later. We are not lacking in female anti-heroes now. The novel and the show complement each other rather well. Liked the neater ending of the book more though, but the show is a visual feast. Interesting how the show creators chickened out...

    Well, this was a pleasant surprise. I remember all the ruckus over Gillian Flynn a while back, and my resulting tracing (not carving) of a mental note on my palm that I should eventually read something by this gal because everybody was all in a tizzy over her wonderfulmousnessity back ...

    1 Star Overview: I should have known better. I don?t have an excuse. I read Gillian Flynn's other book, Gone Girl, last year?and wasn?t a fan. Everyone raved about it, but I found the characters shallow, the plot twists weak, and the narrative so busy being cynical it d...

    3.5 stars. I?ll be honest, I was scared to read this book. It gave me horror vibes, and because I do not read horror ? with very few exceptions on Halloween ? I didn?t even want to think about reading this book. But then an opportunity fell into my lap, and so here we ...

    When I had first come across rave reviews of Gone Girl, I was bowled over by the fact that there's after all a woman who is brave enough to try her hand at a genre rarely ventured into by women writers. And apparently, she excels at it too. Surely, she couldn't have hoodwinked hordes o...

    Disturbing story. Disturbing characters. This book will make you feel uncomfortable, that's what Gillian Flynn does best! I'm not sure I loved it but it's definitely the best written thriller I've read so far this year... still only getting 3.5 stars though! I did suspect the rig...

    ?I just think some women aren't made to be mothers. And some women aren't made to be daughters.? ? Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects This is one of the darkest, most disturbing books I've ever read. And I love it. Well, today I love it. I picked it up years ago, started reading a...

    okay so i,of course, was initially drawn to this book because it has shiny cover. i am like a magpie or a raccoon or something... and then it just sat on the shelf for ages and one day i read the description of it somewhere. and it's all "whore" on her ankle and "pain" on her heart or ...

    Squee! This is coming out on TV on Sky Atlantic. I cannot wait! (2018). I don't know about you, but in my opinion this is WAY better than Gone Girl, I think this one is a hidden gem. It's a lot more subtle but that's why it works more. This is one spine-chilling disturbing and dark...

    From the first page, I felt the author had just finished a Chuck Palahniuk novel and decided she wanted to be like him when she grew up. Sentence fragments can be fun if you're in the mood for things like "A belly. A smell. He was suddenly standing next to me." (Not exact quotes, but p...

    Finally I climbed out under my rock to read my first GF novel. I was happy I did. Camille got under my skin, zero pun intended, and I enjoyed the whole ride. Whilst graphic, I wasn?t bothered, and whilst dark this was fine too. I was impressed with the writing of this book and unders...

    ?The face you give the world tells the world how to treat you.? There is something deeply unhealthy about this book. It's in the characters, in the story, in the relationships, in the sex, and just in the general mood of the novel. Reading this made me feel a little unwell, both...

    Last week I read the fuck out of Gillian Flynn's catalog. Three novels in eight days while my wife and kids were out of town and a sweltering late July marooned me in one of the house's two air conditioned rooms. So although this review is primarily for Sharp Objects, my favorite of Fl...

    Little buddy read with Her Majesty La Lionne and Jerry on January 31st!! :D This is my third Gillian Flynn book, after Gone Girl and Dark Places. The first one blew my mind, the second one freaked me out a little and this one really scared me. Sure, after reading 5% of it I was ...

    The razor blade on the front cover of the book is what one yearns for right after embarking on this read, sharp blade with which to cut every single page, one by one, until they are so neatly shredded that even the memory of what was written on them becomes non existent. And then, one ...

    Camille Preaker is a young Chicago reporter with a troubled past. When a second young girl goes missing in her home town, Wind Gap, MO, Camille?s fatherly boss sends her down to get the inside scoop. Who says you can?t go home again? Well, maybe you can, but would you really want t...

    2.5 Stars. Unfortunately, I did not love this book and it is probably my least favorite of Gillian Flynn's work. As this was her debut, I'm happy to say I feel her later works show great improvement and a lot of strength. CW: self-harm, sexualization of children, murder, child abuse...

    *3.5/5* I felt like this book was way too slow paced for how short it was, and it sort of bugged me that the big reveal and explanation was left to the VERY end. It was like nothing nothing nothing BAM EVERYTHING. However, the ending was crazy and twisted and I loved it! I just ...

    Update 10/2018 Doesn't seem that edgy 8 years later. We are not lacking in female anti-heroes now. The novel and the show complement each other rather well. Liked the neater ending of the book more though, but the show is a visual feast. Interesting how the show creators chickened out...

    Well, this was a pleasant surprise. I remember all the ruckus over Gillian Flynn a while back, and my resulting tracing (not carving) of a mental note on my palm that I should eventually read something by this gal because everybody was all in a tizzy over her wonderfulmousnessity back ...

    Disturbing story. Disturbing characters. This book will make you feel uncomfortable, that's what Gillian Flynn does best! I'm not sure I loved it but it's definitely the best written thriller I've read so far this year... still only getting 3.5 stars though! I did suspect the rig...

    Squee! This is coming out on TV on Sky Atlantic. I cannot wait! (2018). I don't know about you, but in my opinion this is WAY better than Gone Girl, I think this one is a hidden gem. It's a lot more subtle but that's why it works more. This is one spine-chilling disturbing and dark...

    From the first page, I felt the author had just finished a Chuck Palahniuk novel and decided she wanted to be like him when she grew up. Sentence fragments can be fun if you're in the mood for things like "A belly. A smell. He was suddenly standing next to me." (Not exact quotes, but p...

    Finally I climbed out under my rock to read my first GF novel. I was happy I did. Camille got under my skin, zero pun intended, and I enjoyed the whole ride. Whilst graphic, I wasn?t bothered, and whilst dark this was fine too. I was impressed with the writing of this book and unders...

    "I just think some women aren't made to be mothers. And some women aren't made to be daughters." Journalist Camille Preaker is sent back to her hometown, where one girl has been brutally murdered and another one is missing. Dark and twisty and fucked up characters are my FAVE, an...

    ?Sometimes if you let people do things to you, you're really doing it to them.? It's freaky and twisted. It's terrifying and compelling. You'll sit down, grab the book and read it until you've reached the last page. No kiddings here. I read this in one sitting, no pause for wa...

    "I just think some women aren't made to be mothers. And some women aren't made to be daughters." Journalist Camille Preaker is sent back to her hometown, where one girl has been brutally murdered and another one is missing. Dark and twisty and fucked up characters are my FAVE, an...

    BEST GILLIAN FLYNN BOOK. By a mile. Sorry, Gone Girl, you are no longer welcome here. (Just kidding I'm probably going to reread it in one absolute second but will it be as good as this book? No, it will not.) This is so CREEPY and the writing is so visceral and it's so unique. Ther...

    i'm not sure what to say about this book because while i think it reads like a bestseller should, i didn't enjoy it. the prose is compelling in that i felt compelled to finish it, and i did. i couldn't put it down but i wanted to get it over with. i think the writing is engaging but i ...

    I really liked Gone Girl, but was quite disappointed by Dark Places, so I had absolutely no idea what I would think about this book. I'm happy to report that this one was another win for me! It was a super easy and fast read with a solid plot and interesting characters. In fact, I ...

    ?The face you give the world tells the world how to treat you.? There is something deeply unhealthy about this book. It's in the characters, in the story, in the relationships, in the sex, and just in the general mood of the novel. Reading this made me feel a little unwell, both...

    Last week I read the fuck out of Gillian Flynn's catalog. Three novels in eight days while my wife and kids were out of town and a sweltering late July marooned me in one of the house's two air conditioned rooms. So although this review is primarily for Sharp Objects, my favorite of Fl...

    The razor blade on the front cover of the book is what one yearns for right after embarking on this read, sharp blade with which to cut every single page, one by one, until they are so neatly shredded that even the memory of what was written on them becomes non existent. And then, one ...

    *3.5/5* I felt like this book was way too slow paced for how short it was, and it sort of bugged me that the big reveal and explanation was left to the VERY end. It was like nothing nothing nothing BAM EVERYTHING. However, the ending was crazy and twisted and I loved it! I just ...

    Update 10/2018 Doesn't seem that edgy 8 years later. We are not lacking in female anti-heroes now. The novel and the show complement each other rather well. Liked the neater ending of the book more though, but the show is a visual feast. Interesting how the show creators chickened out...

    When I had first come across rave reviews of Gone Girl, I was bowled over by the fact that there's after all a woman who is brave enough to try her hand at a genre rarely ventured into by women writers. And apparently, she excels at it too. Surely, she couldn't have hoodwinked hordes o...

    Squee! This is coming out on TV on Sky Atlantic. I cannot wait! (2018). I don't know about you, but in my opinion this is WAY better than Gone Girl, I think this one is a hidden gem. It's a lot more subtle but that's why it works more. This is one spine-chilling disturbing and dark...

    From the first page, I felt the author had just finished a Chuck Palahniuk novel and decided she wanted to be like him when she grew up. Sentence fragments can be fun if you're in the mood for things like "A belly. A smell. He was suddenly standing next to me." (Not exact quotes, but p...

    1 Star Overview: I should have known better. I don?t have an excuse. I read Gillian Flynn's other book, Gone Girl, last year?and wasn?t a fan. Everyone raved about it, but I found the characters shallow, the plot twists weak, and the narrative so busy being cynical it d...

    Update - NEWS ABOUT the HBO mini-series of "Sharp Objects". Who else has seen it? What are your thoughts? Which did you enjoy more? The book or the series? Amy Adams was outstanding!!! One of the best acting roles I've seen her play. VERY creepy show -- 'excellent' -- All the acto...

    3.5 stars. I?ll be honest, I was scared to read this book. It gave me horror vibes, and because I do not read horror ? with very few exceptions on Halloween ? I didn?t even want to think about reading this book. But then an opportunity fell into my lap, and so here we ...

    When I had first come across rave reviews of Gone Girl, I was bowled over by the fact that there's after all a woman who is brave enough to try her hand at a genre rarely ventured into by women writers. And apparently, she excels at it too. Surely, she couldn't have hoodwinked hordes o...

    Disturbing story. Disturbing characters. This book will make you feel uncomfortable, that's what Gillian Flynn does best! I'm not sure I loved it but it's definitely the best written thriller I've read so far this year... still only getting 3.5 stars though! I did suspect the rig...

    ?I just think some women aren't made to be mothers. And some women aren't made to be daughters.? ? Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects This is one of the darkest, most disturbing books I've ever read. And I love it. Well, today I love it. I picked it up years ago, started reading a...

    okay so i,of course, was initially drawn to this book because it has shiny cover. i am like a magpie or a raccoon or something... and then it just sat on the shelf for ages and one day i read the description of it somewhere. and it's all "whore" on her ankle and "pain" on her heart or ...

    Squee! This is coming out on TV on Sky Atlantic. I cannot wait! (2018). I don't know about you, but in my opinion this is WAY better than Gone Girl, I think this one is a hidden gem. It's a lot more subtle but that's why it works more. This is one spine-chilling disturbing and dark...

    From the first page, I felt the author had just finished a Chuck Palahniuk novel and decided she wanted to be like him when she grew up. Sentence fragments can be fun if you're in the mood for things like "A belly. A smell. He was suddenly standing next to me." (Not exact quotes, but p...

    Espaol - English La protagonista tiene fallas como todos la tenemos, pero tiene una forma de narrar que te intriga a seguir leyendo. Cuando era solo una nia muri su hermana y desde entonces escriba palabras con cortes en su piel. Motivo por el cual estuvo ingresada en un...

    Terrific book, truly creepy. A page turner about a journalist going back to her tiny Missouri home town to cover the recent murders of two little girls. Gillian Flynn's writing in Entertainment Weekly has always been a notch above, and her first novel is no disappointment. What's re...

    Finally I climbed out under my rock to read my first GF novel. I was happy I did. Camille got under my skin, zero pun intended, and I enjoyed the whole ride. Whilst graphic, I wasn?t bothered, and whilst dark this was fine too. I was impressed with the writing of this book and unders...

    ?Sometimes if you let people do things to you, you're really doing it to them.? It's freaky and twisted. It's terrifying and compelling. You'll sit down, grab the book and read it until you've reached the last page. No kiddings here. I read this in one sitting, no pause for wa...

    "I just think some women aren't made to be mothers. And some women aren't made to be daughters." Journalist Camille Preaker is sent back to her hometown, where one girl has been brutally murdered and another one is missing. Dark and twisty and fucked up characters are my FAVE, an...
