Here is a cast list of utterly damaged characters, with the narrator, Camille Preaker, leading the cast. Fresh from psychiatric hospital, this Chicago-based reporter is sent to her long-left home town to comment on a couple of nasty and unsolved murders. We meet her damaged mother, her unreliable sister, and a host of others. This is an engrossing but troubling read, which in the end rather exhausted me and I was glad to turn the last page, feeling that both characters and the town in which the book is set are caricatures, rather than living breathing souls.

Wow!!! is all I have to say about this book. I finished pretty quickly and I can't tell you how great this book really is. I am just now writing my review because my computer was down. I started reading this book after watching Gone Girl. Sharp objects was super riveting and kept me on my toes. I never wanted to book the book down. The twists and turns in this book will keep you wanted more. ***** stars for Gillian for this awesome read. ( )

Jesus Christ. It's fairly well-written, yeah, but reading it has been an emotionally blackening experience. I'd planned to read all 3 of Flynn's novels in a row starting with her debut here, but now I'm thinking I'll read something sunnier next to lift my mood. Crime and Punishment, Elie Wiesel's Night trilogy… something like that.

Maybe I just haven't had the misfortune, but it's hard to believe a town could be as horrible a place as Wind Gap, Missouri is. Down in the Missouri boot heel a massive pig factory farm operates just outside of town, cruelly treating the tortured pigs unfortunate enough to spend their lives there. Is that symbolism at work, you ask? Why yes, yes it is. While the humans down the road aren't locked in metal cages with bloody appendages poking out, they're nasty pieces of work in their own respects, and no one seems to get out.

Of course, one of them has. But not for long. Here, then, comes the survivor and escapee, Camille, back to town to write a story on the two young girls recently murdered and found with all their teeth removed. A cutter and an alcoholic, she gets sucked back in to the demented and twisted house of her psychopathic mother and other relatives, the legacy of a dead sister still in the air.

Este livro é sombrio, verdadeiramente sinistro.

A narradora não é uma heroína brilhante. É muito humana, altamente ferida, tentando fazer sentido e seguir em frente.

“ɪ'ᴠᴇ ᴀʟᴡᴀʏꜱ ʙᴇᴇɴ ᴘᴀʀᴛɪᴀʟ ᴛᴏ ᴛʜᴇ ɪᴍᴀɢᴇ ᴏꜰ ʟɪQᴜᴏʀ ᴀꜱ ʟᴜʙʀɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, ᴀ ʟᴀʏᴇʀ ᴏꜰ ᴘʀᴏᴛᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ ꜰʀᴏᴍ ᴀʟʟ ᴛʜᴇ ꜱʜᴀʀᴘ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛꜱ ɪɴ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʜᴇᴀᴅ.”

Camille Preaker é uma jovem repórter de Chicago com um passado conturbado. Quando uma segunda jovem desaparece na sua cidade natal, o chefe de Camille manda-a para o local.
Camille, que fez tudo para repudiar esta cidade, vê-se a regressar lá de má vontade.
A escrita é forte. Com facilidade entramos na história e sentimo-nos transportados para uma cidade deprimida e assustada.

“ᴀ ᴛᴏᴡɴ ꜱᴏ ꜱᴜꜰꜰᴏᴄᴀᴛɪɴɢ ᴀɴᴅ ꜱᴍᴀʟʟ, ʏᴏᴜ ᴛʀɪᴘᴘᴇᴅ ᴏᴠᴇʀ ᴘᴇᴏᴘʟᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ʜᴀᴛᴇᴅ ᴇᴠᴇʀʏ ᴅᴀʏ. ᴘᴇᴏᴘʟᴇ ᴡʜᴏ ᴋɴᴇᴡ ᴛʜɪɴɢꜱ ᴀʙᴏᴜᴛ ʏᴏᴜ. ɪᴛ'ꜱ ᴛʜᴇ ᴋɪɴᴅ ᴏꜰ ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ʟᴇᴀᴠᴇꜱ ᴀ ᴍᴀʀᴋ.”

Camille é uma protagonista muito interessante de conhecer. Tem um passado muito sombrio, uma família perturbada, história de violência, abusos e danos próprios. Ao regressar, traz de volta muitas más recordações, encontros embaraçosos com antigos colegas de turma, mexericos, uma reunião com a sua mãe, que sempre foi muito fria e hostil para com ela.

“ʜᴏᴡ ᴄᴏɴꜰᴜꜱɪɴɢ ᴛᴏ ʟɪᴠᴇ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ꜱʜᴀᴅᴏᴡ ᴏꜰ ᴀ ꜱʜᴀᴅᴏᴡ.”

Todas as pessoas desta história têm os seus problemas.

Quem é que está a levar estas raparigas? A cidade inteira acredita que é um dos seus e todos têm a sua teoria, os dedos estão a apontar para todos os lados.

Camille, quanto mais se envolve no mistério, mais descobre sobre a sua cidade, a sua família, e sobre si própria. As descobertas são tudo menos agradáveis.
As suas velhas cicatrizes manifestam-se e novas estão à espreita nas sombras.

“ꜱᴏᴍᴇᴛɪᴍᴇꜱ ɪᴛ ɪꜱ ᴀʟʟ ᴛᴏᴏ ʟᴏᴜᴅ.”

Gillian Flynn é mestre na concepção da psique humana, transformando-a num personagem vivo que não se esquecerá em tão pouco tempo.
Este é o primeiro livro que escreveu. 'Em Parte Incerta' é o seu mais conhecido.
História inquietante. Personagens perturbadoras. Este livro vai fazer-te sentir desconfortável.

Estás no estado de espírito adequado? ( )

I bought this book a long time ago and to be honest, wanted to be in the right state of mind in order to read it knowing my experiences with the other works from this author.

Now don't get me wrong - this is a good thriller, as a matter of fact, a horror story that will shake you to your core.

What makes Gilian Flynn's book true horrors is the ease with which she depicts truly demented members of society - these psychopaths are fine and dandy when in open but when left alone with their victims their true nature comes to the surface. And this is what makes these books disturbing, and this is where rather chilly realism of these books lies in. You never know what brews under-the-hood of many a man or woman or child you see around you and maybe it is good that we do not know.

I wont go into details regarding the book, especially since TV show is now airing and this is one of these books you need time to forget before re-reading because of the story punchline.

Is it disturbing - yes it is. Are the main characters inherently evil - no they are not. They are victims of their past and of their upbringing (yes, even her, and you will who "she" is as story progresses) but given right push they can get back to normal humanity.

Highly recommended but keep in mind that book is rather disturbing. ( )

Not surprising considering the sheer amount of traffic a woman’s body experiences.”
