Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn Book Summary

NOW AN HBO® LIMITED SERIES STARRING AMY ADAMS, NOMINATED FOR EIGHT EMMY AWARDS, INCLUDING OUTSTANDING LIMITED SERIES

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, 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 in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

Good hbo showHi.Score: 5/5

AddictingI’m not a huge book worm, but I couldn’t put the book down! It’s a must read thriller that involves twists in turns. It is very dark at times but worth reading..Score: 5/5

Good BookThis is a good book and I was very satisfied by the ending. Why give it only four stars then? There were some wandering chapters after the midway point that added nothing to the plot and unnecessarily slowed the pace..Score: 4/5

Amazing StorylineThis book was amazing with all it’s twist and turns, and I very much recommend you read it. If you want a story with thriller horror, a mystery, relatable characters, and some romance, you’ve found the right book..Score: 5/5

A Page-Turner!!!I watched the first season of Sharp Objects on HBO, and was immediately hooked by the plot. I needed answers and decided to purchase the book— I was not disappointed. This is the kind of book that you will make time for because you will not want to put it down. I don’t want to spoil the plot; thus, I will spare details, other than that Flynn is the queen of plot twists. **This book may not be appropriate for readers who are prone to substance abuse and self-harm..Score: 5/5

Twisting Turns until the very endI had to read this book before the HBO Series premiered. It didn’t disappoint. Page turner after gripping page turner..Score: 4/5

My review on Sharp objectsI have given this book five stars because I personally really liked it, and it was the first book I was able to finish in a long while. I also enjoyed the characters and how well they were portrayed in the book. Gillian Flynn really knew how to depict each scene perfectly, too. Because each scene from the book was as if I was watching a movie or a show. And yes, I do know that Sharp Objects is also a show on HBO, and I like both the show and the book and finish both of them. But that brings me to my point where there were times I imagined a scene from the book and was so convinced it was, in fact, a scene from the HBO tv series because of how well I envisioned it in my head. For instance, there was one particular scene I read when Allen Crellin (the father of Camille and Amma) was sitting at the table in the morning and eating egg yolks in a bowl with a spoon. As to why he was eating raw eggs, I don’t know? But that scene in the book was so vivid and so imaginative in my head I thought for certain that I have seen that particular scene from the show itself..Score: 5/5

Amazing!I love this author!! I could not put the book down .. she paints a picture of a truly dysfunctional family! It’s dark and all around a great mystery!!.Score: 5/5

DumbIt’s a dumb story that isn’t well written. I only finished the book because I held out hope they would make this story into an HBO series because it was good, somehow. Sadly, I wasted my time. The ending is obvious and frankly insulting to my intelligence. Read if you want to complain about a book..Score: 1/5

If you love the series, you’ll love this bookI went backwards — I saw the HBO series with one of my all-time favorites, Amy Adams, before I read the book. I knew the plot and I still couldn’t put it down. Gillian Flynn did it to me with her other two and now she’s done it again. This book will hook you from beginning to end and since it’s so short, you can finish it in a few days. I really love how the end of her show/movie are different from the book endings. Really sparks a debate!.Score: 5/5

Sharp ObjectsThe first book I read by Gillian Flynn was Dark Places and it had me from start to finish. This wasn’t as good of a book compared to DP for me, but still very good..Score: 4/5

Sharp ObjectsExcellent read. Creepy & exciting. Couldn’t wait to find out who the culprit was - clever twist..Score: 5/5

ChillingHonestly, this is the first book I almost put down. I actually had to take a mental break from the darkness. After telling myself that a good book cannot go unfinished, I continued. I’m so glad I did. Challenging the darkest parts of humanity, Sharp Objects keeps readers invested (even if that investment is painful at times) and curious..Score: 4/5

Good bookThis book was good, but nowhere near as heart-stopping as Gone Girl. Perhaps that was the point? I loved the big twist/revelation at the end...did NOT see that one coming! I also loved that the main character was so realistically flawed. It made for an interesting ride!.Score: 4/5

Love the bookI enjoyed the book and continue to reread when I’m between new books. I do wish the website mentioned in the epilogue were changed or removed, as it leads you to a Japanese porn website...Score: 5/5

A good read!This may be the only book that I like less than its TV adaptation. However, I still think it’s a fine book, especially if you enjoy books that are on the darker side. The protagonist is complex yet strangely endearing despite the fact that she’s deeply troubled. Overall, I’d recommend Sharp Objects to anyone!.Score: 4/5

Not as impressed as I thoughtI am typically interested in these types of books and was very excited to read Sharp Objects because of the great reviews I’ve heard/read. Unfortunately, I kept waiting for the book to get “good” as I read. I felt like the only exciting part of the book that everyone wants to read didn’t occur until the last 20 pages or so..Score: 2/5

Phenomenal readWow. This was a definite page turner for me. I read it fairly fast. I love how it wasn’t that long, very direct with the plot and very much to the point. Cannot wait to read more from Gillian..Score: 5/5

Kept me locked inI love a good mystery book. This book was definitely dark and some of the characters made you feel so uneasy at times. I loved to watch everything unravel. Not sure easy to read next after this one!.Score: 5/5

Hauntingly Spectacular.Rich and damaged characters in a dark, gothic setting…One of the most amazing novels I’ve read. It stays with you long after finish..Score: 5/5

Pretentious, boring, predictable.The writing is so tedious and amateur I found physically myself cringing every page or two. I also knew how it was going to end by page 34 when the author basically spells it out for you in bold letters. I also have to say: Flynn’s copious and irrelevant descriptions of young teenage girls’ body parts really bothered me in this. It took a turn for the bizarre when I realized they weren’t necessary at all for character development, plot, or gaining an understanding of how the narrator thinks—WHY would she be thinking that way literally any time she sees a young girl? They started to sound more like the author speaking and less like the narrator (Camille). You don’t need to describe a girl’s every body part, down to her “downy” “coltish” legs and what kind of bra she’s wearing, every time you introduce one into the scene or refer back to her. It borders on obsession, and made me embarrassed and uncomfortable for the author..Score: 1/5

ExcellentAbsolutely loved this book. I thought the story was beautifully told and on top of the great writing style that makes you want to keep reading, the ending isnt something you are just waiting for. The ENTIRE story is great. Thought the TV show did it SOME justice, did’t like what they changed in the show but the acting,setting and direction was great. Book was GREAT and the show was also,but personally prefer the book to the show..Score: 5/5

AMAZINGI didn’t think I would like this book. It was hard to get into because it reminded me of a Hallmark movie at first. For some reason I kept reading. I’m so glad I did. The book is full of wild plot twists that make it almost impossible to put down!.Score: 5/5

A Riveting Thriller from Gillian FlynnSharp Objects is a deeply disturbing, yet incisive thriller that’s not afraid to go off the ledge. it’s brutal and real in its style, with some of the most memorable characters i’ve ever followed. ultimately, it’s a book about unpacking — unpacking repressed memories of a lost childhood; unpacking the tension between women who care more for getting on each other’s toes than painting their own. of course, in the end, they're all bound to fall down, and goodness is it riveting to read!.Score: 4/5

Sharp Objects!!!This book is full of mysteries and twist of characters where it describe crime, blood, self harm and mental illness. If you are overly fond of mysteries and okay with psychotic issues of how the novel will evolve then this book is for you but if your not very fond of extreme mysteries and crimes then this book is not for you. I find this book disturbing but an okay overall novel. But it really depends on the readers, some love it and some is just okay with it..Score: 2/5

Creepily unbelieveableRead the whole psychotic book. Something kept me there. Best points: It did have a many twists and turns. Negative points: Not much depth to characters and plot was hard to buy into so I could not empathize with the protagonist. One of the many bad mystery/crazy girls books of late..Score: 1/5

CreepyGood book. I don't know how the author thinks of these things but it keeps you on edge..Score: 4/5
