Dark Places: A Novel | Gillian Flynn
post image
Pickpick

Sole survivor of a family massacre supposedly committed by her brother, narrator Libby Day is reluctantly recruited by a local amateur sleuth club into uncovering the truth behind the murders years later. As I have already posted there are a lot of regional references, which was great fun. Flynn is a master at quickly establishing idiosyncratic voices, brimming with black humor. The alternating chapters between present day & that of the murders👇

vivastory Works very effectively. I liked this one as much as Sharp Objects. 2h

Very quick read, but I wasn‘t blown away by it. It‘s good don‘t get me wrong, but it wasn‘t the best thriller I read this year (which I know is a bit ask but people are going nuts over this!)

Scorpioseah What‘s your best thriller of the year? (edited) 2h
rajithr Read many thrillers this year, including The Whisper Man, but loved ❤️ this one the most, thanks to it's kick-ass leading lady. now

I‘m so conflicted about this, I don‘t really know how to review it. On one hand, it was compulsory readable. I just couldn‘t stop. On the other hand, Joe‘s obsessiveness, jealousy, and sexism scared me so much, because that‘s real. It isn‘t a fictionalised monster, they are real problems in the world. And it made me so uncomfortable to read about. So yeah, not really sure how I feel right now.

#SocialMediaFocus last book for #Booked2019, tho! 🙌

4thhouseontheleft Great review! Congrats on finishing up the challenge! 5h
MicheleinPhilly I couldn‘t agree with you more. I enjoyed reading this book but the fetishization of Joe that I see all over the internet makes me want to puke. 5h
squirrelbrain I agree with your review - it made me quite uncomfortable.... 5h

LITTLE SECRETS - 5/5 STARS!!! - I devoured this book in only two short sittings! It‘s super suspenseful and well written. It kept me hanging on to the last page. It begins with a child abduction and spins into a web of lies and so much more. If you enjoyed one of her other books that I loved, Jar or Hearts, this is the book for you! Though I will say this one is slightly less dark than Jar of Hearts, but still ohhhh soo good! Pub date: April 2020!

Summary: A group of friends gather together to celebrate the New Year at an isolated lodge in the Scottish Highlands. The group arrives right before a huge blizzard moves in (cue the creepy music). Two days later, one of them is dead.

Thoughts: Overall not a bad atmospheric mystery/thriller. I enjoyed the fact that the author kept the reader guessing at who got murdered and who did it. The ending left me with mixed feelings.

This book is brimming with regional jokes that I think any reader, no matter where they are can understand, but as a Kansas City resident make me really laugh.

BarbaraBB I‘ll start a Flynn later this week as well! 7h
vivastory @BarbaraBB That's a great one! There's a passing reference to it in Dark Places 7h
merelybookish Ah yeah, Mission Hills. 🙄 7h
vivastory @merelybookish 😂 AKA one reason I don't shop at Rainy Day Books more often 6h
marleed There are some beautiful homes in Mission Hills. But few sidewalks! I can‘t figure that out. Is it to discourage pedestrians!? 35m
