Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects is sure to grab your attention from the very first page. Camille, a journalist, is asked to go back to her hometown and report on the murder of two preteen girls. For someone just getting out of the psych hospital this is asking a lot. She has been estranged from her mother and half-sister for years and now she must go home and face them.
Flynn’s writing is great and has a wonderful pace that keeps you turning the pages. I really liked all of the small town drama and realizing that nothing in the past stays in past. Eventually, we all have to face the consequences of our deeds. I loved the psychological suspense of Gone Girl, but I felt like this book was even better. A must read for any thriller fan.
