Sharp Objects - Gillian Flynn
After reading Gone Girl, I wanted to read something similar to it, so I immediately downloaded Gillian Flynn's two other books - Sharp Objects and Dark Places.
Sharp Objects is about two murders of young girls in a small town and a reporter, originally from there, returns to write about the murders. But, the story quickly becomes about her own troubled life.
Flynn's novels are easy to get into and go by quickly, but the endings always feel rushed. So much happens towards the ending and I wish it would have been fleshed out more.
I'm looking forward to reading Dark Places.
I'm suddenly on a fiction kick. My main gripe with fiction books was that it always took so long to get involved - whereas in non-fiction, I usually already have some idea what's going on. But, with Flynn's books, they're easy to get into. The main characters, despite their flaws, are easy to like and you end up rooting for them, even though they make mistakes.
7/50 - 23 for 23 - Goal #3.
