Thought I had the ending figured but totally got it wrong! ( )

TRUST NO ONE!!!

Sharp Objects hovers between a gritty, dark 3 1/2 - 4 stars for me. Flynn is great with wicked twists and plots. Definitely disturbing but in that disturbing way Gillian Flynn does all too well.

This is a must read! I simply couldn't put it down. Disturbing is the best word I can use to describe it. And, to be honest, I kind of had quite a bit of it figured out from the beginning. I must be reading too much! Despite having pretty much figuring out where the story was going, it was still very much worth the read. ( )

Depressing mystery about a reporter going back to her home town, to research and report on the death/disappearance of two girls. The reporter had a troubled childhood, and developed into a cutter. Lots of grief in dealing with that, and hiding her true self. Probably won't read another by this author. ( )

Gone Girl was much better. This book was very predictable from early on. I kept reading hoping that it would take a surprising twist, but it did not. It ended much like I expected. Disappointing... ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0307341550, Paperback)

As loyal Entertainment Weekly subscribers, we have been fans of Gillian Flynn for her smart, funny, and spot-on reviews of books, movies, and TV, but we were not prepared for her stunning debut novel Sharp Objects, a wickedly dark thriller that Stephen King calls a "relentlessly creepy family saga" and an "admirably nasty piece of work." We're calling it a cross between Twin Peaks and Secretary--sinister, sexy, and stylish. Perfect fall reading. --Daphne Durham

10 Second Interview: A Few Words with Gillian Flynn

Q: Do you prefer writing novels or reviewing?
A: I think writing is more pure--and actually a bit easier for me. It's just me and my laptop, not me and my laptop and a TV show that 30 people have worked on. Reviewing keeps you sharp--I can hardly watch or read anything without taking notes now--but plain old writing I find actually relaxing.

Q: Do think your writing is influenced more by books that you have read, or shows/movies that you have seen?
A: My mom spent her career as a reading teacher and my dad is a retired film professor, so I was really steeped in both books and movies growing up. To this day, when I get my dad on the phone, pretty much his first sentence is "Seen anything good lately?" I love putting words together (I've never met a simile I didn't like), but when I write I often think in "scenes"--I want these two people, in a dirty bar, with this song playing in the background.

Q: I hear you are working on your second book...is it is too early to ask what it's about?
A: I'm still playing around with the whole plot--when I wrote Sharp Objects, I wasn't even sure who the killer was for a bit. But I can say [the new book] has to do with family loyalty, false memories, a wrenching murder trial, and a dash of good 'ole 1980s hair metal and devil worship.

Q: What is your writing process like? Have you changed anything about how you work since your first book?
A: My writing process is incredibly inefficient, and hasn't changed between books. I really don't outline: I know basically how I want the story to start, and vaguely how I want it to end (though like I said, with Sharp Objects even that changed!). Then I just write: Some characters I start finding more interesting, some less. I write entire swaths that I pretty much know I'll cut. I have an entire file of "deleted scenes." I guess the one thing that has physically changed is I moved into a new place since my first book--it has a great bathtub, and I'll prop my laptop up and write in the bath for hours. Which is, admittedly, weird.
