Mystery: 10/10, loved it. Fantastic job, even if you guess who it is it's tense start to finish.

The parts where Gillian Flynn tries to write anything about sex: 0/10 girl, what the fuck?

I encourage people who think they may need a trigger warning to look up a full list before reading because there's a lot of stuff in there that could be triggering. It's a VERY dark book. I liked it and so will others, but still. ( )

“The face you give the world, tells the world how to treat you.”

Sharp Objects is my first read of the year 2020 and the first book I have read by author Gillian Flynn. First let me start with the star ratings I have given this book. All through this book I was stuck between a 1 or a 2 star rating but I kind of ended up giving it a 3 star rating only because of the climax. I must say the author really took me by surprise with such an unpredictable end.

On the other hand I thought the whole story was blown out of proportion and was all over the place or should i say was all over the town. Every character in the book has a very dark, shadowy, sad, depressing past which they carry with them throughout the whole story, be it Camilla Precker, her mother Adora or the thirteen year half sister who does not quite behave her age. According to me the author had roped in way too many characters, which have little or no contribution to the story except for the juicy gossips they provided around town.

Honestly,halfway through the book I found it difficult to put a finger on as to which direction the story was really headed. was it the story of the main protagonist Camilla Precker and the shadowy relationship with her mother and her half sister or story of the investigation into the case of the girls how had been murdered and how all this would end up being related to Camilla? Even when the story got interesting I found that the author had put pages after pages describing people or the town of wind gap due to which as a reader i was losing interest and was unable to keep focus . I felt the book was highly descriptive.

For me personally the book only got interesting in the last four five chapters. All I can say is that i had my fingers crossed hoping for a unpredictable end, which according to me the author lived up too.

This book is really twisted. It is not poorly written and it is suspenseful, but it is so extremely disturbing I cannot give more than 3 stars. The final images of the book are awfully grotesque. I hope I forget the final chapters! ( )

*3.75 Stars
I enjoyed this thriller; it definitely kept me reading! However, there were parts that felt very choppy with the writing that left me a little confused as I was reading (had to read a few parts more than once). The lack of detail in some parts is one of the reasons I didn't give this book 5 stars. I enjoy Camille's flashbacks of her life with her mother growing up, but felt some unneven or choppiness in the story telling of both the past and present. This left me a feeling a little unsatisfied as well as confused when the story jumped over several hours (or even years at some points).

Gillian Flynn sure knows how to write an unlikable character! I may have felt a little empathy towards the main character, Camille, but still wouldn't be able to say that I "liked her". I like that she writes about flawed characters, but it is a little nice to feel like you have someone to root for throughout a story.

Even though I wasn't 100% sure, I totally called that ending. And that's all I'm going to say about that. I plan to read Dark Places at some point maybe this month, and then will be caught up on everything Gillian FLynn has written (I think). ( )

Objetos Cortantes é um livro escrito por Gillian Flynn e traduzido por Fernanda Oliveira.

Basicamente, conta-nos a história de Camille Preaker, uma jornalista que acabou de sair de um internamento num hospital psiquiátrico quando, a pedido do seu patrão, se vê obrigada a regressar aos fantasmas da sua terra Natal para fazer a cobertura de um caso de homicídio de duas raparigas.

Há bastante tempo que Camille não fala com a mãe, que considera neurótica e hipocondríaca, pois andava sempre atrás dela e das irmãs com mezinhas, considerando que, para não adoecerem, deveriam tomar os medicamentos por ela concebidos. Mas Camille, uma rapariga esquiva e rebelde, na altura, não era a jovem que a mãe gostava de tratar. Aliás, era uma filha que desprezava.

Um dos fantasmas que mais a ensombram é a irmã, que morreu em circunstâncias estranhas, a quem Camille via constantemente doente.

Sou sincera, não sei como gostei deste livro. Não é um livro de que toda a gente, certamente, goste. É sórdido, é mórbido…Mas, o que é certo é que nos prende desde o início. E são esses contornos altamente fora de tudo o que pode ser considerado “normal”, que nos captam, que nos levam a querer saber mais, o que se passou, como foi, quem seria capaz de tais atos mórbidos?

Não consegui, o que também é raro em quase todos os livros, gostar de nenhuma personagem. Desde a mãe, simplesmente fria, irritante, prepotente, desequilibrada. O padrasto, completamente submisso à mãe; o meia-irmã, uma miúda de 13 anos completamente mimada, malcriada e irritante e a própria protagonista, Camille, desequilibrada, mórbida, perversa, viciada em massacrar o próprio corpo com cortes que até a ela envergonhavam. Cada uma, à sua maneira, tem traços odiáveis.

Quando parece que conseguimos deslindar os crimes que ocorreram às jovens, que foram mortas e a quem @ assassin@ retirava os dentes, ficamos petrificados e surpreendidos com o final, totalmente inesperado. Quem seria, com efeito, capaz de tamanhas atrocidades? E onde escondia, por exemplo, os dentes que arrancava às crianças?

É um livro que nos mantém presos até ao final, se bem que, a meio, pensando eu ter descoberto @ assassin@, tenha considerado o texto demasiado morno e a empatar um pouco. Mas tudo muda e é, em suspense total, que entramos na reta final da leitura!

Recomendo! ( )

“The photo showed a dark-eyed girl with a feral grin and too much hair for her head. The kind of girl who’d be described by teachers as a ‘handful.’ I liked her.”
“Sometimes I think illness sits inside every woman, waiting for the right moment to bloom. I have known so many sick women all my life. Women with chronic pain, with ever-gestating diseases. Women with conditions. Men, sure, they have bone snaps, they have backaches, they have a surgery or two, yank out a tonsil, insert a shiny plastic hip. Women get consumed. Not surprising considering the sheer amount of traffic a woman’s body experiences.”
