Now that I’ve read all of Gillian Flynn’s novels, I want more! Sharp Objects was just as jacked up as Dark Places.
Chicago journalist, Camille Preaker, is sent back to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri to cover the brutal deaths of two little girls. She has issues and has not been back home for over ten years. Her relationship with her mother, Adora, is non-existent as is the relationship with her half-sister Amma. Her editor felt it was a good idea to send her to Wind Gap to cover the story because of the hometown connection. Turns out it wasn’t the best idea after all.
This story had all types of craziness and I enjoyed every bit of it. Camille and her whole family had issues and these issues played a big part in the story. There really weren’t any “good” characters. Camille probably came the closest. When you read this, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
