Summary:

WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart
Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg
Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.

HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle
As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims-a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.

With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

    Great book. Narrator puts you right in the moment. I always expect a twist at the end of book. I plan for it. Wait for it. But bam it blind sides me every time.

  • Jeni Huff

  • Heather Payne

    Camille has some serious issues. She is a reporter that is assigned to a story about a murder in her old home town. She is not only mentally disturbed and cuts her self, She is nasty as a perverted truck driver that needs to get laid. Sorry bout her luck. I had a hard time listening to her desperate sexual desires and her mental issues. I\'m no Sherlock but I had it figured out fairly early. That was the best part of the story (who did it). Just didn\'t care for the s***** Camille who is an alcoholic. What a depressing character!

  • Jessica Roberts

    I've read Gone Girl first and found this very good as well, maybe better. Again, as with her other novels, I was trying to guess all the time and was not even close to write. Really an amazing read.

  • Lorelyn Zaragoza

    I loved this and I love Gillian Flynn's writing style! Her stories are so delicious dark with some satiric comedy thrown in. I definitely recommend it!

  • Katie Brown

    Absolutely loved this book. I thought I had the end predicted but then it twisted around and still surprised me. Very much enjoyed it and having a hard time now finding a book that appeals to me as much as this one did.

  • Cheryl Zweibohmer

    This is my favorite book of all time and was written by my favorite author of all time. Everything written by Gillian Flynn is twisted and keeps you wanting more. Sharp Objects is suspenseful along with a little scary With all of Gillian Fllyn's books just when you think you have the ending figured out, you don't. She has a way of keeping you on the edge of you seat guessing, but never do you guess the end. . You want to keep reading or listening. If I had had the time I would have listed to it straight though. The narration was extremely good. I recommended all of Gillian Flynn's books! Happy Reading/Listening!

  • Holly Harrison

    Surreal, scary and suspenseful! This book had so many twists, and turns that I never saw coming. Every chapter took me by surprise and was better than the previous one. A wonderful page turner that once started is hard to stop until it`s done. Every time you think you have it all figured out, that everything makes sense it does a 180 on you!
