Sharp Objects – Gillian Flynn (2006)


Six years before Gillian Flynn set the world on fire with Amy and Nick Dunne in Gone Girl, she created a dark and twisted family drama surrounding Camille Preaker, her mother and her sisters. Camille is a journalist who hates talking to people and seems to lack any natural curiosity common to the profession. Her mother, Adora, is a wealthy Southern Belle style woman, her sister Marian died young and her youngest, half sister Amma is both mommy’s little doll and a nasty Mean Girl, not quite 13 years old. When Camille is sent to her hometown, Wind Gap, Missouri, to cover the potential serial child killer story that is unfolding, Camille is forced into intrigue that calls into question her own family and her upbringing. The book twists and turns, bringing the reader further into the mire. There is a large portion of the book that explores the pain of a variety of mental illnesses, which affect much of the family in one way or another. If you enjoyed Gone Girl, Dark Places or Girl on the Train, you will love Sharp Objects. (254 pages)
