Took this picture Thanksgiving morning during the snow storm. 🌨️❄️☃️ This is the one I'll be reading next. After reading #Cut by #PatriciaMcCormick, I figured I will read another book about #selfharm that's a few pages longer. Let's see how this one attacks the subject matter. What are your thoughts on it?

#FallIsBooked Day 26: #AScaryBook that is thoroughly disturbing, Flynn managed to portray the fragrances & fumes of womanity in a way that is raw, unflinching, & apologetic, like tiny cuts in one‘s face & marveling at its peculiar beauty. I find this to be more finely delivered than Gone Girl, the horror eating away at one‘s insides, in seeming glee, delivered with a graceful & sophisticated flick of the wrist.

I listened to this all of yesterday while I cleaned up my whole room (part of why I haven't been on Litsy has been lack of motivation which has been a tough thing I've been dealing with for over a couple of months). I have to say, while it was interesting, it wasn't as intense as I thought it was going to be. I also felt like the reveal was rushed right at the end without letting the reader do a little bit more digging. All in all, though, solid.

This book left me completely uneasy and uncomfortable, which I suppose was the entire point of the story. I normally love psychological thrillers, but this one was so dark I physically felt nauseated at times. The idea behind the novel was interesting and it did have a surprising twist at the end (which I appreciated). Sometimes I just wanted to bail and not finish the story, but other parts kept me so interested I couldn‘t put the book down.

Reagan-reads I much preferred Dark Places to this one. 2mo

Wow just wow. This book might be my favorite of Flynn‘s . The mental health of children can be so f”‘d up by parents. This book is dark, full of sharp edges . The demons she faces in words is really gripping and I find myself relating to her in a very far removed way.

Wow, what a ride this one was‼️ Started it yesterday late at night because my ill body wouldn‘t let me sleep and after a slow beginning the audiobook gripped me latest at hour three. I figured out the ending fast – but not that twist‼️😯

I‘m not sure if all those “sex, drugs and Rock‘n‘Roll” was really necessary to “sell” the point but I liked Camille anyway. But the small town was scary enough without all those addicts.

Thrilling entertainment.

Cathythoughts Hey !! A new one ! Interesting ! Gone Girl my fave so far 4mo
Cathythoughts Or maybe I have the wrong title in English 🤭🙊🙊🙊 4mo
Rachel.Rencher @Cathythoughts I think this one is Sharp Objects judging by the razor on the cover, and her description of Camille. I loved the twist at the end of this one. 😊 4mo
Buechersuechtling @Cathythoughts It might not be that new to you … “Sharp Objects” in English. Her debut, as far as I know. I might have to buy “Gone Girl”, my library doesn‘t have it. 4mo

It was super obvious who'd be the bad guys here, but still like a car crash the emotional cruelty was so fascinating you just couldn't look/hear away. Gillian Flynn once again gives a unique perspective on misconseptions of the female psyche, motherhood and feminism with another visit to suburban America. Holy hell, people are fucked up! Will definately watch the HBO #adaptation too.

Just finished watching this series. I really disliked the book (maybe it just wasn‘t great as an audio?) but the actors in the show did a good job of making the completely unrealistic characters a little more believable.
While watching, I was a little distracted (in a good way) by the eclectic sound track so I checked it out on Spotify, and yep, it‘s there. It‘s pretty fun ranging from Led Zeppelin to Tupac to beautiful instrumentals. Recommend🎼

BookDragonNotWorm I wasn't a huge fan of the book - probably worse on audio, but not a stellar read, either. 6mo
Bookish.SAM @BookDragonNotWorm Ya, I was not a fan of the book at all ... dangerously close to saying I hated it, but gave the show shot. So much better than the book. And the music really sucked me in 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6mo

This book disappointed me. I was underwhelmed by the storyline and found the writing to be rather coarse. The main characters weren‘t at all endearing, which I guess was the point, but I would‘ve liked a nicer personality to have been included. This book wasn‘t a total pan, but my expectations were higher. ⭐️⭐️

Book 29: Wow. My first Gillian Flynn book and I‘m really underwhelmed. I guessed who the murderer was pretty early on which ruined the book, honestly. Also not into Flynn‘s treatment of women (either a whore or a villain) and how she plainly states that if someone doesn‘t leave their hometown, they‘re stupid?

MMFinck Def not her best. Her worst, IMO. I just finished her Ghost Story one. It was pretty good. More complicated than this one. Definitely give Gone Girl a try. It is as excellent as everyone says. 8mo

#QuotsyApr19 Day 12: Better to submit, than to #refuse. This novel was immensely disturbing - but the TV series with its darkness, leisurely pace, and gradual build up was in so many ways, superior as well. A novel that would definitely remain with the reader for quite some time.

LikelyLibrarian I felt the same way, about this book and about Dark Places. The book was my favorite Flynn and the movie was really good too 8mo

I didn‘t like “gone girl” but I decided to give Gillian Flynn a second chance... Bad move! The book is predictable, shallow in depicting emotions and psychiatric disturbances. Sort of a bad-style copy of Patricia highsmith (who is unrivaled anyway)

Disturbing. I like dark, but this just made me feel icky. The characters are all unlikable and super twisted. It was rather predictable in parts, but I don‘t think the murder mystery was really the point. It‘s good when a book can evoke strong emotions, and for that, I rate it highly, but I wouldn‘t say I actually enjoyed it.

Gillian Flynn is definitely a master at her craft. Her characters are complex and multi-layered. I enjoy flawed characters who don‘t always have a happy ending and Flynn‘s main character, Camille Preaker, definitely fits the bill. I found her mother‘s diagnosis and the reveal of the killer to be a bit obvious, but overall I enjoyed the book. If you‘re looking for a quick and entertaining read, give this one a shot. #sharpobjects
