Reviews

Named one of the Best Books of 2009 by "Publishers Weekly"
A "Weekend TODAY" "Top Summer Read"
"The New Yorker"'s Reviewers' Favorite from 2009
A 2009 Favorite Fiction Pick by "The Chicago Tribune
"
"[A] nerve-fraying thriller."
--"The New York Times"
"Flynn's well-paced story deftly shows the fallibility of memory and the lies a child tells herself to get through a trauma."
--"The New Yorker
"
"Gillian Flynn coolly demolished the notion that little girls are made of sugar and spice in "Sharp Objects," her sensuous and chilling first thriller. In DARK PLACES, her equally sensuous and chilling follow-up, Flynn...has conjured up a whole new crew of feral and troubled young females....[A] propulsive and twisty mystery."
--"Entertainment Weekly
""Flynn follows her deliciously creepy "Sharp Objects" with another dark tale . . . The story, alternating between the 1985 murders and the present, has a tense momentum that works beautifully. And when the truth emerges, it's so macabre not even twisted little Libby Day could see it coming."
--"People" (4 stars)
"Crackles with peevish energy and corrosive wit."
--"Dallas Morning News"
"A riveting tale of true horror by a writer who has all the gifts to pull it off."
--"Chicago Tribune
"
"In her first psychological thriller, "Sharp Objects, " Flynn created a world unsparingly grim and nasty (the heroine carves words into her own flesh) written with irresistibly mordant humor. The sleuth in her equally disturbing and original second novel is Libby Day....It's Flynn's gift that she can make a caustic, self-loathing, unpleasant protagonist someone you come to root for."
--"New York Magazine"
"[A] gripping thriller."
--"Cosmopolitan
""Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre."

"Another winner!"
